    Critical Race Theory...

    The idea that racism is so inherent in the 'system' that the system itself must be dismantled.

    Reparations...

    The idea that people who have never committed a wrong must pay off another group of people who haven't had any wrong done to them.

    So believe in reparations is radical. I dont believe in reparations but it is obviously that slavery and racism has given whites a significant advantage.

    why is so hard for conservatives admit that racism goes on. we need laws and regulations to stop racism and present equality for all.

    A black man complained about racism lol

    I guess now every black person is radical lol

    It's wrong ducks, because destroying that system also destroys the ONLY means any of us have to advance ourselves, REGARDLESS of race.

    I didn't kill Indians either. But somehow supporting reservations and all sorts of goodies that Indians get is never questioned by Conservatives (for the most part).

    That's on our dime too.

    So your position is that the 'system' is somehow holding you down? Why don't you enlighten us and tell us HOW that is?

    Few conservatives deny the existence of racism. The left wing socialists are rife with racism, and it shows in just about everything they think. They don't really think Blacks and Browns are as good as Whites, because they continually claim that Blacks and Browns need additional help to get along in life. They firmly believe that Black people and Brown people would be living miserable lives, if they didn't have the good hearted, condescending liberal/socialists to do for them.

    ^^This.

    Also let me scream this because this will be the only response to my point: "Anti Semitic!"

    The Jewish people are also held up on our dime and we are still paying. Seems the only problem with paying blacks is that....well, they shouldnt expect any help. Everyone else can get it but blacks should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. Then claim that helping blacks is akin to insulting them. Only blacks tho...

    Oh I can answer that one:

    1. He's black and educated.

    2. He's the first black Harvard Law Professor who received tenure.

    3. He's black and for civil rights.

    4. He's black and thinks black people have been mistreated.

    5. Oh, and did I mention he's "black".

    For the right wing, these are all unforgivable transgressions.

    Anyone that uses race to expect more or less of something because of the color of their skin is racist. Equal doesn't mean better or less, if everyone took advantage of the education, programs and information available there would be very little difference.

    It just so happens the majority of the country has white skin, so is it the contention that whites somehow owe others because their skin may be a different color.

    I truly am sorry what my ancestors did to "non-whites", however banishing the Native Americans to an area away from them was just as bad as slavery. Might want to brush up on your American History and the Trail of Tears.

    The tools are available for everyone, no matter the color of their skin........some choose to use them, some don't, others think they are the only ones entitled. Equal is equal, isn't it??

    Bell, thought he was a radical, according to his wife Janet, Derrick never reached out to Obama because he knew he'd be a distraction.

    Bell was a radical, an activist he wanted to be and was proud of it, for liberals to paint it as anything different would be a disgrace to Bell.
