I am not accusing you of calling anyone a racist. As far as what party any particular "racist" belongs to or votes for, that is another story. Please, substantiate your statement that nearly all racists vote republican.
I can't really substantiate it because, as far as I know, no one has surveyed or polled that. My statement was based on my personal observations and opinion. But anyone who lives in the south and is honest with themselves knows that it is true.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Strateg...
Though the "Solid South" had been a longtime Democratic Party stronghold due to the Democratic Party's defense of slavery before the American Civil War and segregation for a century thereafter, many white Southern Democrats stopped supporting the party following the civil rights plank of the Democratic campaign in 1948 (triggering the Dixiecrats), the African-American Civil Rights Movement, the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and desegregation.
The strategy was first adopted under future Republican President Richard Nixon and Republican Senator Barry Goldwater[6][7] in the late 1960s.[8] The strategy was successful in many regards. It contributed to the electoral realignment of Southern states to the Republican Party, but at the expense of losing more than 90 percent of black voters to the Democratic Party. As the twentieth century came to a close, the Republican Party began trying to appeal again to black voters, though with little success.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reagan 's_Neshoba_County_Fair_%22stat es'_rights%22_speech
Ronald Reagan's "states' rights" speech given on August 3, 1980, was his first public address after the Republican National Convention officially chose him as the Republican nominee for the 1980 United States presidential election. The speech drew attention for his use of the phrase "states' rights" at the Neshoba County Fair, just a few miles from Philadelphia, Mississippi, a town associated with the 1964 murders of civil rights workers. Reagan said:
“ I believe in states' rights.... I believe we have distorted the balance of our government today by giving powers that were never intended to be given in the Constitution to that federal establishment.”
He went on to promise to "restore to states and local governments the power that properly belongs to them."[1] The use of the phrase was seen by some as a tacit appeal to Southern white voters and a continuation of Richard Nixon's Southern Strategy, while others argued it merely reflected his libertarian economic beliefs.
great post, I reminded him about the 64 election- see above. They just love old Ronny.

John Barrow a Conservative Democrat Rep. from Ga., along with the support of ICE, and other Rep., have written a bill that deals with the real problems of immigration, is being ignored. This bill called "Keeping the Promise of IRCA" is the most sensible approach at dealing with our illegal immigration that I've seen. I've tried several times to post this info only for it to be erased or links be corrupted. Here's a link that explains his approach to immigration reform.

"but would you deny that nearly all racists vote republican, why is that?"

I added the question mark for you...

There are so many "available" responses to this post, but let's keep it simple:

Do you know and understand the definition of racism? It appears not. Can't black people be racist, too?

The vast majority of blacks are said to have voted for BO (90%+), so are you excluding them from your post? Oh, you mean WHITE racists, don't you?

If white people didn't vote for the black man because he's black (although I didn't vote for him because of his party, his ideas, his (lack of) plans, his lack of experience, etc.), isn't that the same thing as black people voting for the black man BECAUSE he's black?

Yes, I was referring to white racists, simply because they are the only ones that I know personally. But I don't deny that there may well be black racists as well and it does stand to reason that they would vote democratic- and don't be adding anything to my post. If I had wanted a damn question mark there, I would have put one, Mr. Bill, okay.

<quoted text>Yeah, concentrating on the end result is the ticket. It's an inherently black cultural thing, and it's not being a racist to point it out, just look at the end result, all this inherent violence that's just part of their nature. Any other explanation is just more liberal, socialist, PC crapola designed to confuse and confound anyone that can plainly see the plain truth of the situation.

http://www.aft.org/pdfs/americaneducator/spri...
...social scientists have rightly devoted considerable attention to concentrated povety, because it maginifes the problems associated with poverty in general: joblessness, crime, drug trafficking, broken homes, and dsyfunctional schools. Neighborhoods of highly concentrated poverty are seen as dangerous, and therefore they become isolated, socially and economically, as people go out of their way to avoid them.

...One of the effects of living in racially segragated neighborhoods is exposure to group-specific cultural traits (cultural frames, orientation, habitis, and worldviews as well as styles of behavior and particular skills) that emerged from patterns of racial exculsion and that may not be conducive to social mobility. For example, research has found that some groups in the inner city put a high value on "street smarts," the behaviors and actions that keep them safe in areas of high crime....In this environment, it is wise to avoid eye contact with strangers and keep to yourself....in some cases, prevent indidiuals from performing well on a job interview, creating a perception that they are not desirable job candidates.

Today, Detroit filed for bankruptcy. Wonder what happened? I guess Obama doesn't need their votes now.

I'm not a Carter fan, but what he says, many others are saying also.


" Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter … in the wake of the NSA spying scandal criticized the American political system.“America has no functioning democracy,” Carter said Tuesday at a meeting of the “Atlantic Bridge” in Atlanta.

Many other high-level U.S. officials have also warned that the U.S. is no longer a democracy.

Carter also said that the moral authority of of the U.S. has sharply declined due to excessive restriction of civil rights.

And – like many other top American officials – Carter also said that Edward Snowden’s revelations do not harm our national security, but are “useful”."
Great post.

Carter was, and is, one of the most ethical and moral force in America.

Only a moron can look at history and not understand that Carter was right about almost everything he tried to implement.
