- NY 26th FINALLY DEM!
Her facts are all wrong. disgraceful propaganda is all that makes today's GOP possible.As I said, this is a problem that both ends have to clean up. Unless and until they do that, this does not improve. That's a huge undertaking and will require real bravery, but those who are exacerbating the problem have their own agenda.You are anything but a totalitarian, my friend, and yes, I would not say racism has disappeared.You just keep lying.No one on this board has taken more heat from the Regressive Left on this topic than me. I point out regularly, literally thousands of times, how they have leveraged PC and Identity Politics in the most cynical, dishonest and destructive of ways. I don't have to defend my history there.Wouldn't it be more productive to try to define the word racism in a way it applies to all people, instead?
You have to know by now that we see lots of things in a similar way and I also like chic quite a bit and it seems to me you are just talking past one another.
Sometimes you hold the left's feet to the fire, sometimes the right and sometimes both. In this thread, you aren't taking the leftists to task for their politically correct dogma, so maybe you could define racism as you understand it and go from there.
There are still people racist against blacks, true, but there are also institutions that give blacks an advantage. Being Asian, she is in the group most DISADVANTAGED, so maybe defining the term so that it applies to all people equally would help.
This thread is from a person who is clearly either delusional or terribly dishonest. To suggest that racism is rare or marginal is absurd in the extreme, and can only be the result of complete immersion in hardcore partisan ideology.
But to claim that racism no longer exists is pathological. For someone to be that out of touch with reality suggests personal issues that make attempts at real conversation a complete waste of time.
I'll say it for the ten thousandth time: Both ends of this issue should be ashamed at their behaviors regarding race, and both ends need to look in the mirror and clean their own house, if you'll excuse the mixed metaphor.
Racism doesn't exist? That is madness.
Ooooo.....you're really upset that I exposed you as a totalitarian who wants people punished for thinking differently than you do.
Take the heat.....you've earned it.
"Racism doesn't exist? That is madness."
Soooo.....let's see the examples.
Dogmaphobe , you know that I have never, not once, said I "want people punished for thinking differently than I do". And I've gone at it a thousand times with those who punish and intimidate freedom of expression.
You tell me what you're seeing here, Dogmaphobe. Take your time and look through this thread.. I think you're reasonable, and I think you see it.
This is pathological.
What I WOULD say, however is that the entire onus for combatting racism has been placed upon white people and non of it on black and this has become so extreme that whites are now assailed for MICRO "aggressions" while blacks bear no responsibility whatsoever.
Yes, racism still exists and I am not denying that. It's just that white people, by and large, have taken steps towards addressing their racist attitudes - sometimes to the point of comic overreaction while blacks, by and large, haven't.
I realize that there are many who have a vested professional interest in keeping this battle hot, but I wonder about people like this, laypeople who go so far out of their way to just make things worse. I don't know what they think they're accomplishing.
I can think of a few (and I'll bet you can too) left wingers here who are essentially a mirror image of the OP and other right wingers here. I go back to what I've said many times: I wonder if it's been so long we communicated honestly that we have simply lost the skill.
