Oh please. You sound pretty racist. But you don't realize that.
It's not that blacks are acting like victims. it's that they have LOTS of reason to mistrust the government. The proven ways our government has stabbed them in the back for so long, and in so many ways, just makes them more willing to believe it's happening even when it's not.
It's not racist to point out the truth. If black sailors had cleaned those ships instead of white people, you'd never hear the end of it ... just like you keep going on an on about syphilis experiments. It's almost as if you feel the government has never done anything bad to white people or groups of white people.

By saying the government has stabbed "them" in the back for so long, you also only prove my point that many blacks (and you, apparently) see any offense to any black or a few of them as an offense to all of them, no matter when it took place.

I don't think it has to do with black men in general. I think they keep raising it up to a point where the highest percentage will die before collecting and they can still get away with having it at that age.

It is a good thing the earth is round, because you are so far to the left, you'd fall off the earth if it were flat.

Ok, I'll bite, only because I know how this is going to end.

Angela, what part of the parties platform makes them woman haters and racists? Let's please stick to facts and reason, instead of crazy conspiracy theories unsupported by facts other than mere coincidences.

What?!?

I don 't think that the syphillis-experiments, etc can be blamed on today's Republican Party. Institutionalized racism transcended party lines.

There is very little difference in the actual behind the scenes "leaders" in both parties. Rich people who can't relate to the concerns of the middle class and seem to care more about how to get re-elected and the needs of the lobbyists than their constituents.

The big difference is in the people who are trying to make big names for themselves. They have to figure out how to distinguish themselves from the *other* party and come up with some wild sound bites (often thanks to some leading or prodding by the media) in the process.

Why are we talking about politics again? Today is Giving Tuesday.

Yes, please. I am unaware of any racist and women-hating platforms of the Republican party. Typical liberal statement. Completely narrow-minded in believing Republicans are pure evil and blind and oblivious to any facts to the contrary.

I wanna hear about specific policies and platforms

It's not my show. I'm an independent. I voted for O'dummy the first time he ran and was a big fan of Clinton.

Making birth control illegal isn't apart of the Republican party platform. You are so misinformed. Ryan sponsored a bill that would outlaw certain types that abort fertilized eggs, but he didn't want to ban all forms of it. I'm also sure a fair amount of religious women don't find that to be a huge assault against women. How nice of you to take the banner for all women, tho, and decide that any law related to women that you don't support is against all women.

You also haven't mentioned how their platform is racist? Let's hear it.

Race even pointed it out to you too.

You are just making personal attacks now, Angela. Good or bad, I don't particularly care what you think of my abilities when it comes to my profession.

Also, that bill Ryan sponsored wasn't intended to be against women or punish women. He and many religious folks believe that life begins when fertilization occurs. This is what motivates them. Not hatred for women. I don't agree with the republican's parties views on this issue, but even I can see it's not about "hating women" that motivates them. It's a gross misrepresentation to characterize it as such.

I think this is a case of if the facts don't support your case, distort, distort, distort.

I just saw that; did not hear about it last year. But we had decided last night that we, as in all 4 of us, would spend some of the money for christmas gifts on a donation of some sort after we got a Heifer International "catalog" yesterday in the mail.

I thought that might be a great idea. The kids love animals after all, and I think they would get how a few farm animals could really help a family. But then I saw where we can buy some guinea pigs for families in Equador - where they use them for protein in their diet.

I think that we'll just stick to goats or chicks or bunnies...
