    1. According to Google, racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

    "...all members of each race possess characteristics..."



    2. To which political party does 'racist' apply?

    Historically and contemporaneously, it applies to one party and one party only.....but not the one that the media would have you believe.

    Yup.....clearly the Democrat Party is the 'racist' party.....everything is seen through the prism of skin color for Democrats.



    3. I’ve never believed that the term ‘racism’ is applicable to thoughts, only to actions, because the essence of the Constitution is that Americans should be free to think what they wish….but if that’s the way the Left slathers it on any who disagree with them, well, let’s have it their way.



    If talking bad about an entire race is a crime…..

    4. “During a recent segment about a supermarket shooting in Kentucky, CNN host Don Lemon said that “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

    “So,” he said, “we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban — you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white-guy ban. So what do we do about that?”
    CNN’s Don Lemon doubles down after saying white men are ‘the biggest terror threat in this country’


    5. “WASHINGTON – Steven Clifford, author and former CEO of the King Broadcasting Company and National Mobile Television, told PJM that the federal government should “prohibit straight white males from voting” in U.S. elections as a way to “save” democracy.

    “I think it’s the only hope for democracy in America and I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy,” Clifford said during an interview…”
    Former TV CEO Says U.S. Should Ban ‘Straight White Males from Voting’


    6. “HILLARY CLINTON HAD NO CONCESSION SPEECH, BLAMES LOSS ON ‘WHITE PEOPLE’

    I believe there is enough blame to go around on both sides - Republicans and Democrats.
    But it's mostly it's the Democrats that like to incite Racism in anything they can possibly find. JMO

    "I believe there is enough blame to go around on both sides - Republicans and Democrats."

    In that case, could you provide some examples of recognizable Republicans making similar blanket statements such as those examples given in the OP?



    “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

    "I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy,”

    "Clinton said that she has wondered what happened ever since she lost to then-Republican candidate Donald Trump.


    Clinton added that “white people” happened.


    “[Trump] was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances, for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others because—”


    “What you’re saying is millions of white people,” Pauley interrupted.


    “Millions of white people, yeah,” Clinton replied. “Millions of white people.” Hillary Clinton Had No Concession Speech, Blames Loss On ‘White People’ [VIDEO]

    Whether it was lots of melanin, or lack of melanin....it has always been the basis for selection to lead the nation.....at least for Democrats.





    "Did a State Democratic Party Logo Once Feature the Slogan ‘White Supremacy’?
    Until 1966, the official logo of the Alabama Democratic Party featured a crowing rooster and a banner reading "White Supremacy."

    The Tufts Daily‏ @TuftsDaily
    Signs bearing the message "It's okay to be white" appeared on multiple @jumbovote posters around campus Wednesday night. The slogan has been linked to white supremacist groups and appeared at two Vermont colleges in recent days. Updates to follow.

    "IT'S OKAY TO BE WHITE" sign found on doors at Montgomery Blair HS in MD. School says flyers were removed and says they're investigating.

    4:41 PM - Nov 2, 2017


    Posters proclaiming “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” have been appearing on college campuses and on city streets across the country this week, prompted by an anonymous chat-room comment that suggested the message would feed social unrest and sway white Americans to far-right ideologies.

    Since Tuesday, the posters have been spotted in Rocky River, Ohio; at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.; at Tulane University in New Orleans; at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Md.; around college-campus rich Cambridge, Mass., including the Harvard Yardand at the University of Alberta in Canada. In most cases, schools and cities have pulled the posters down, but the message has continued to spread in images and hashtags across Twitterand other social media platforms, even prompting a related Know Your Meme entry detailing its Internet origins and cultural backstory."

    Am I missing what the problem is??????

    Here is one of the comments a reader posted to the WaPo article above:

    What's with all the ridiculous conflation of "white nationalists" (i.e., nationalists who happen to be white) with white supremacists? And who is this Valentino dude, upon which the author's entire premise rests, pontificating about how so many more whites now feel "aggrieved" these days, which he then proceeds to belittle because of his "data"? The nation's race relations had improved to the point where a huge proportion of the 70% of the population that is white voted Obama into office -- and then he promptly spent the next 8 years excoriating the opposition (which he painted as uniformly "white" -- which it wasn't) as a bunch of redneck racists. And so in 2016 they voted for Nationalism over Globalism, regarded as the source of much of what ails the nation, in the form of Trump. And yes, it IS as simple as that, notwithstanding Democrats', ivory-tower black professors', and mainstream media's efforts to paint that outcome and the nation's ethos differently.

    No, it most certainly is NOT "okay" to be white in this day and age.
