How about you tell me the number of times you have been racially profiled by the police.


Run along commie, if you can't answer a simple question you're a waste of time and oxygen. And BTW, I've been stopped by officers many times just because of my job.

That’s an interesting take on The Great Society, but when you look at it as an acknowledgement that blacks simply need “more government help” because they are less capable, as opposed to suffering from racism, consider what it says and predicts about reparations (should they ever get passed).

Blacks have lost headway since the 1960s, at least in the non- Jim Crow states. When I was a child back in those days, we had black children in school with us, they were almost all from two-parent families, and there were lots of black-owned businesses. Then….along came LBJ (a known racist), who created a program of giveaways that effectively erased the need for black women to marry the fathers of their children, and the black illegitimacy rate skyrocketed.

Was this by intent? Some say yes…..it was a way to keep black families broken. Others say it was just a way to buy black votes. Either way, blacks have lost a lot of ground since LBJ’s Great Society, even with affirmative action giving another big hand up.

Now what does this mean for reparations? Is it a way for Dems to say that blacks just can’t make it on their own without added help? And will it have the effect that LBJ did - making things worse for blacks, and weakening the family structure further?

This is why middle-class blacks, who have strong families and earn decent livings, are opposed to the idea of reparations. Aside from them recognizing how unfair it is, it can send the message that blacks need extra help to make it in this country, whereas whites do not. Some might say that is due to racism, but others may say it’s an admission that blacks, whether by nature of by choices, aren’t as good as white people. It will lead to the very racism that reparations is supposed to compensate for.
Sure, referring to your last paragraph, if "reparations"actually are used as "Basic" in the sci-fi sense, it's a giving up on the obviously untrue ideas that excuse blacks' failures, but a lot of people are floating that idea these days, and it's not going to be support for generations of whites, after all.

Yes, of course LBJ weakened ------------ everything. It was a catastrophe. I remember the King march --- it was so RESPECTABLE!! All that is gone. The fact that affirmative action could not compensate tells the whole story, to me.

The giveaways program is particularly interesting to me because during the early Clinton administration The Bell Curve came out, and I basically started a riot at a Thanksgiving dinner in Boston because I HAD that book (of course I didn't say anything -- It was Thanksgiving!! unlike kids who run out of the house at Thx these days, one reads constantly. Very bad manners.), and then Clinton STOPPED the incentives for blacks to pump out babies as fast as they could to get income like the Basic we're talking about, thank God, and that was definitely because of that book. I realized that at the time and was amazed at the power of the pen.


I see that you and I have some ideas in common. I am very interested in your thinking and I hope you stay here.

Wow, more fucking deflection, who'd a thunk.
If you click the link and read you will see information about the Indian Removal Act which forced Cherokee off their land. They named it the Trail of Tears.

Yeah, I studied it at length in OK history. But that has nothing to do with the question I asked in post 131.

Thank you. I’m enjoying conversing with you. I tried to send you a DM, but it looks like you are not set up for private conversations. I get the idea that we live in the same general region. We certainly have much of the same outlook.

I am back from the no-napkin, no salad luxury hotel, btw. Same thing happened Night #2 - nothing to eat. I ended up at the food court of a nearby shopping mall for dinner. Ugh. But hey…..they had napkins!

And yet, Biden is going to campaign with him tonight. Let’s remind voters of failed Democrat policies! Yeah, yeah….that’s the ticket.

Just in Arlington where people who don't already work for the democrats won't notice

A very tight governor's race with independent voters giving Tyrannical Terry McAuliffe horrible approval
ratings says the republicans will narrowly send McAuliffe's leftist ass packing.

And in Oregon the numbers are awful for Kate Brown....oh, so sad.

I guess “domestic terrorists” was a bridge too far, so the Democrats - in desperation - are back to their old tactic of calling people who don’t submit to liberalism racists. In the latest, a parent objects to the book “Beloved” as being inappropriate for teens due to pornography and sick sex (beastilaity) as being a racist, and claims she and Youngkin are “banning black authors.” He further called it a “racist dog whistle” to Trump’s bigots, obviously don’t denigrating Virginians who voted for Trump.

Oh boy. Now a bunch of white wingers who spent all day being insulting pricks get to cry about being called a name. Nice work, terry. Try to remember, you are running for office in a country full of morons.

Of course this is Fox News so it is fake news. Parents should not be trying to ban books. There is certainly no reason for banning the book except for the fact that it was written by a black person. Racist would be a fair statement.

Democrats in the South in the 1950's, racists.

Democrats today? Same thing.

Note Democrats always are the ones who want to discriminate based on race. You are consistently the racists

Those Democrats moved to the Republican Party and are big Trump supporters.

Democrats in Virginia smack their own constituents around all the time when they disagree politically. My Congress Critter boycotted the 2016 inauguration, saying he wasn’t going to celebrate that Americans elected a hateful racist to the president. That’s as good as calling Americans who voted for him racist, including 45% of Virginia voters.

Republicans nominated a racist for Senator so we know at least 40% of Virginia voters are racists. This is fake outrage that is being generated by Republicans to hide their right wing extremist agenda.

Virginia is also the only state where it was "racist" to actually want to have an independent commission draw the new districts per the democrats. Anyway Terry is in trouble and it isn't because of his dense brain. It is because he is tethered to Joe Biden's out of control inflation.

It is because Republicans are trying to divert voter attention from their far right agenda.
