    Would you mind fixing the quoting so I can tell what of my remarks you've replied to?

    The reason I'm asking you to fix the quoting, Slash is because I don't even see something I wrote in the post.

    You must have someone else in mind. I made no such claim. In fact, I said tacitly the very opposite of that.

    Political parties are marketing brands, not stable philosophical labels. Over the years, both parties have swapped membership groups and legislative positions several times. What one party did or said back then is often quite different from its position now. There is really no ideological core to either of them. They are at best pragmatic, too often opportunistic. Chose the one that suits you now but don't expect it will never change. It is a good strategy to think each time before you vote.

    So you think that what white people are living now is the same as what blacks lived under Jim crow?


    Ignorant would be an understatement.....
