    He said, "Camel-la Harris"

     Did he pronounce both "l"s?

     

    If he is a racist, what race is he a racist against?  Is he a racist against blacks?  Is it racist to think that Sen. Harris is black instead instead of Asian?  If you are by-racial, does one black parent trump the race of the other parent?  Why is former President Obama considered black instead of white?

     

    I think it racist to think of bi-racial individuals to be black just because one of their parents is black.  I think it racist to even care what race a person might be and yet the Democrats pushed hard to discriminate in the selection process in that the selection process involved both gender and racial discrimination. 

     

    What a bunch of bigots.

     

    One year, one day in the future, no one will care, or so I would Pray for such a happy day.

  2. Did he call the Senator Camel or something?

     

    Some people have names that are very difficult to pronounce correctly unless you have a shared native language.  Moreover, mispronouncing someone name, even intentional, is hardly racists.  Racists are those who make generalized judgement about people of a race based on the behavior of some few, as if pigmentation determines how people behave.

     

    Her selection was predicated on her gender and race, intentional discrimination, and now the bigots who insisted on a black woman for the office are the same people calling others racists?

    Democracy is a form of government, not even that great a form of government.   A democracy is not a living thing and not capable of having goals, or dreams, or hatreds, such are the domain of individual people although a great many individuals may have nearly identical goals.

    Sorry rednecks....but Mass and the Vineyard LOVE the Obamas....as ALL the Educated States do

     

    Try something else, how bout benghazi.....benghazi.....benghazi

     

     

    ROTFLMAO!!!

    States are not animate, that is a State can not get an education, only individual people go to university.

     

    I grew up in western Massachusetts, many in my family where faculty at UMASS Amherst, lots of stupid, ignorant uneducated people in Massachusetts.

  5. A great multitude of people and the left stream media where very vocal in wanting Biden to pick a black woman, that is their desire was for the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate to intentional discriminate on the bases of both gender and race when choosing a vice president for the Democratic ticket.

     

    Nice work choice racist, sexist bigots.

     

    Is not work a trigger word for Democrats?

    Police unions allow bad cops to get away with murder.

    Teachers unions do not allow child molesters  to stay in the classroom.

     

    What is more devastating ...  anecdotal bad cops ... or the widespread failure of union teachers to teach in our inner cities?

     

    You have a strong propensity to claim murder without a criminal conviction , but anyone can look at the data from inner city schools and recognize the widespread failures of unionized teachers, unless you are claiming that those children are unteachable?

    Trump is the divisive one here. His entire campaign began with birtherism and calling claiming that Mexico was sending rapists and thieves. Black people I know find the sumbitch offensive and so do I. He is also incompetent, corrupt and aggressively ignorant.

    What does any of that have to do with his 2020 campaign?

     

    "And some, I assume, are good people." from that same speech about Mexico sending criminals and rapists.  Mexico is not a race, it is a country, it might be possible to be a bigot against Mexicans, but not a racist, just like it is possible for people to be bigots against law enforcement, but not racists.

     

    "Black people I know find the sumbitch offensive and so do I."  It seams to me that a lot of racists have a habit of talking about the "I have black friends" to excuse their racism.  Are the opinions of Black people somehow better then the opinions of people?  Why are you such a racist?  Does pigmentation dictate opinion?

     

    Trump is the divisive one?  "He [President Trump] is also incompetent, corrupt and aggressively ignorant."  Sounds a lot like the pot calling the kettle black.

     

    You just spout your hateful propaganda over and over again, but that will not change reality.

    This election is not about gun ownership. The NFL has nothing to do with who the president is. Trump is running a racist campaign and that is offensive to Black people. They will be motivated to vote the corrupt turkey out of office.

    What part of the President's campaign is racist?  Please be specific.

     

    Why is this campaign offensive to Black people?  Why not simply all people without regard to race?  Please stop being a racist and segregating my beloved countryman into racial groups!

    It makes sense for BLM to take on police unions.Police unions prevent cities from getting rid of bad cops.

    I m against violence, and think elections are the best way to keep police from beating up people and killing them.

    Police unions enable undue police violence.

    I agree, a radical left wing Marxist organization that is filled with an irrational hatred and bigotry against law enforcement can be expected to resort to violence against the targets of their bigotry.

     

    I would be happy to exclude unions from the government workforce including police unions.  Perhaps then inner city children could actually get a chance at an education.

    The percent of American households owning guns is at a near-40 year low in the latest CBS News poll released this month.

    According to the survey, which was conducted among 1,001 Americans in the aftermath of the Orlando nightclub shooting, 36 percent of U.S. adults either own a firearm personally, or live with someone who does. That's the lowest rate of gun ownership in the CBS poll going back to 1978. It's down 17 points from the highest recorded rate in 1994, and nearly 10 percentage points from 2012.

     

    Different national polls tend to show slightly different rates of gun ownership. The latest household gun ownership rate in the General Social Survey, in 2014, was 32 percent. The October 2015 Gallup survey showed a higher rate of 43 percent, including guns kept on property outside the home.

     

    But the downward trend in gun ownership remains consistent across the national polls. According to Gallup, gun ownership has fallen by about 10 percentage points since its peak in 1993. The General Social Survey shows a 20-point drop since the mid-1970s.

    But gun purchases, as measured by FBI firearm background checks, are at historic highs. And data from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms shows that gun manufacturers are churning out record numbers of guns. Many gun rights advocates argue that these figures mean that the overall number of gun owners is growing: If more guns are being sold, more people must be owning guns.

    AD

    But the declining rates of gun ownership across three major national surveys suggest a different explanation: that most of the rise in gun purchases is driven by existing gun owners stocking up, rather than by people buying their first gun. A Washington Post analysis last year found that the average American gun owner now owns approximately eight firearms, double the number in the 1990s.

     

    Other research bears this out as well. A 2004 survey found that the average gun owner owned 6.6 firearms, and that the top 3 percent of gun owners owned about 25 guns each. More recently, a CBS News poll taken in March of this year found that roughly 1 in 5 gun owners owned 10 guns or more.

    Gun owners remain a potent political force in the U.S., due largely to the successful efforts of advocacy groups like the NRA. But survey data showing declining gun ownership suggests that the NRA has been successful largely by channeling the energy and intensity of an existing gun-owning base, rather than by broadening that base and bringing more supporters into the fold. If declines in ownership continue, the group could have a hard time replicating recent successes in the coming decades.

    More from Wonkblog:

     
     
     

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/06/29/american-gun-ownership-is-now-at-a-30-year-low/

    so all this talk about record gun purchases? is pretty hollow gun wonershi is way down, its just a few nuts stockpiliing

     
     

    Another factor is that most guns are owned by men and the number of households that don't have a man is increasing and a great number of households who own guns have more then one person who owns a gun.

     

    A better measure would be to look at the percentage of people who own guns rather then the percentage of households that have guns.  In my household, 4 out of 5 family members personally own at least one gun.  Also, there are likely many household that have guns, including illegally obtained guns, who would not report their ownership.

     

    A better statement might be that the number of household willing to admit that they own guns is declining.

     

    The data collection methodology distorts the reality of gun ownership in America.

     

    People need to learn how to think critically.

    Some people are talented, others are not. A relatively few Black people had great talent and were in the right place at the right time. despite the disadvantage  of belonging to the lowest caste. The same thing happens in India. A much larger percentage of talented Whites do the same thing.

    Oprah is not oppressed NOW, because she is greatly wealthy. She is not claiming that she is oppressed.

     

    Talent and being born at the right time and being in the right place at the right time.

    We DO have a caste system in this country. It is NOT a lie.

     

     

    What cast system in America?

     

    Traditionally, in India there was a caste system with Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and the Shudras.  A system which stratified Indian society for literally thousands of years, and this system is breaking down even in India.  No such caste system has ever existed in America.  Even chattel slavery is not a caste system, and it most certainly does not exist today when we live in one of the most dynamic and mobile societies on the planet, perhaps the most dynamic and mobile society in all of human history.  If O was Shudras, if we actually had a caste system, she would still be poor and performing menial labor without any regard at all for her talents or industry.

     

    What is dividing our society today is not a hereditary caste system, not even racism, but rather the conflict between the the ideals of liberty and freedom and socialism / Marxism.  It is an ideological divide, not one of caste, race, or religion. Liberty, freedoms, results in disparities of outcomes, the creation of tremendous affluence. Socialism, Marxism results in a more uniform outcomes, widespread poverty, with dependency on the state and servitude to the same. These ideals are not compatible.

     

    It is a filthy lie to claim a caste system in America.

    Oprah is 100% correct that White people enjoy privileges in this country. What we have is a caste system and the Blacks have a role similar to the untouchables. in India. Trump is a racist and uses racism to rouse his rabble every chance he gets.

    He wants Blacks to accept that they are inferior and stay in their place. He wants to use the law to keep them out of the suburbs. His father was a Klansman and was jailed for racist behavior.

    So ... if we have a caste system, how then do some poor people become rich and some very rich people squander away their wealth until they are poor?

     

    How exactly does a dirt poor immigrant come to America, entering our society at the bottom, then prosper with his progeny attending university and going on to become doctors and scientist or even massively wealthy entrepreneur?

     

    Poor baby race-monger Oprah, billionaire Oprah, she is so oppressed by the white man.  Cry me an ocean.

     

    What a filthy evil lie.

    Someone needs to be punished for the death of Sandra Bland.

    The same is true of the murder of  Walter Scott.

     

    "Failure to signal a lane change" is a very lame thing to stop someone for, deserving no more than a warning at the least. I cannot drive ten minutes without seeing people fail to signal properly. I simpy expect this and drive carefully as far behind other cars as I can.

    Sandra Bland most likely killed herself in her cell unless she was a friend of the Clinton's.  No one need be punished for someone else committing suicide and the proximate cause of her death was most certainly not a failure to signal a lane change.

     

    If I was a traffic officer, I would ticket every lazy ass who failed to signal a lane change.  How hard is it to operate a turn signal?

     

    Officer Slager was prosecuted for the murder of Mr. Scoot with the result of a hung jury.  He was also prosecuted for the violation of Mr. Scott's civil writes and sentenced to 20 years in prison.  Justice has been done for Mr. Scott, but perhaps you are advocating lynching.

     

     

     

     

  14. The personal choice to wear a mask or not, has become a matter of free speech, a form of peaceful protest.

     

    We had draft card burnings, flag burnings,  bra burnings, I think it time to have mask burnings.  

     

    For some of us, we are just not capable of living submissively as slaves under the coercion of an authoritarian government which is happy to dictate the parameters of our lives.  Others, are happy to comply, but for myself I find it extraordinarily galling to be told I must wear a mask.  A refusal to do so is not an ignorant decisions to ignore the advice of scientist, but rather a refusal to submit to the violence of government.

     

    What value is there in a life lived in servitude to the state?

     

    If the government would like to advise the use of a face mask, I am happy to consider that advice, in truth I am happy to wear a mask.

    If the government attempts to force me to wear a mask, fuck them, I am a free man.  This has nothing at all to do with health science, but rather the violence and hubris of government.

  15. There was a time when, not but a few decades ago, when there was institutionalized racism, especially in area of Democratic party control, but that was decades ago and John Lewis never changed his behavior with the obvious change of circumstances. 

     

    In the end, John Lewis was a black racist who could not accept the effectiveness of the very reforms he advocated for during the civil rights movement.
