It's not enough if you say discrimination is wrong, segregation is wrong, slavery is wrong, racial profiling is wrong, and all of these things should not be allowed ... nope you have to go full bore whack job liberal on the subject and take it to the extreme to make some folks happy. Hogwash.
What is the definition of "liberal" for you?

You mean the myth of the Southern Strategy:

I have no doubt that there are and were some republican candidates and politicians who are and were racist. That's not the entire party. Each party has their extremists.

Yep ... preferential treatment for minorities is pretty much at the heart of the democratic platform. Even mainstream democrats are in favor of it.

Even though this is NOT what I asked you, please give an example of the platform that gives preferential treatment.

Affirmative action.
So you have a problem with this (it's the platform):

Support affirmative action to redress discrimination

Our commitment to civil rights is ironclad. We will restore vigorous federal enforcement of our civil rights laws for all our people, from fair housing to equal employment opportunity, from Title IX to the Americans with Disabilities Act. We support affirmative action to redress discrimination and to achieve the diversity from which all Americans benefit. We believe a day’s work is worth a day’s pay, and at a time when women still earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men, we need stronger equal pay laws and stronger enforcement of them. We will enact the bipartisan legislation barring workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. We are committed to equal treatment of all service members and believe all patriotic Americans should be allowed to serve our country without discrimination, persecution, or violence. We support the appointment of judges who will uphold our laws and constitutional rights, not their own narrow agendas.

And because you believe everything now is equal and this is unnecessary? You are entitled to your beliefs.

No, blue, not enuff said.

Figured you wouldn't be able to back up your claim. Thanks for proving me right once again.

And go ahead and hold onto your notion that a 2% drop in unemployment over four years is a strong momentum of economic recovery.
