Racism and the 2012 election

Explain how one group can be racist for voting around 60% against a man of a different racial background but another group that votes 90% against a person of a different racial background isn't racist?

Well, MSNBC has already convicted the police officer.

That did not take long.

I wonder if the police office punched his own eye out?

That is a flat out bigoted remark,beright.Given your history of pointing out peoples' different characteristics in a prejudicial way,...... Just saying, it seem to be a collective judgement.

Mod, do you think the looters represent that regular citizens of Ferguson? Please remember the difference between protesters and looters.

I am guessing the looters don't have regular jobs but I could be wrong.

Now, is that a guess or is that racist?

There was a report from Missouri saying Rioters broke into a Payless shoe store and stole every pair of shoes except the work shoes.

According to Newt Gingrich if you tell a lie enough times some will think it a fact !

Lol...now you seem to have the mentality of a racist. You are just making blanket accusations with no facts.

Here are two examples of good but morally questionable political strategies:

1. Using Race to alienate the opposition. The current example is to paint the Tea Party as having racist tendancies. It makes more moderate Republicans get squeamish to be connected to them.

2. Using patriotism to win support. Most recent examples is to make heroes bigger than what they are to make war seem right. The Republicans have been known to do this in regards to Jessica Lynch and Tillman.

Both are good political strategies but very questionable in the realm of morality.

Ok, greek.You gotta qualify that allegation. Then, you can explain why it took so long to elect black legislators in this country.And why black professional athletes had to compete in their own leagues for so long.Negative behaviors aren't cleansed from societies by the mere passage of laws. The manner in which they (behaviors ) were applied are simply altered to adapt to a more clandestine effort to suppress and discriminate.

Yeah..and yet again, "In what way have I spread any hate about a group?"

Pointing out what is good strategy, though immoral, does not make me racist.

I also said that wrapping yourself with the American flag is good strategy for politicians...does that make me a Patriot then? Must be based on your thinking.

These factless accusations are amusing greek..

That's alright.. I will pass. I am not too much into discrimination and spreading hate for any group like you two are !!

Look for that grey area,greek.

Ummm...no. You would be wrong.

And I think you are still confused over what makes great strategy and morally good strategy.

Anyone that says playing the race card is a great political tool obviously agrees with the ideals of racists!!
