So you liberal folks will support a cold blooded murderer if it helps further your "everything is racist" agenda?
At first I had no idea what you're talking about since nobody's supporting a murderer. Then I realized what you were saying.

In your pathological need to maintain your racist attitude, you've actually convinced yourself that people who condemn racist slurs are supporting this killer.

But the thing is - you slurred an entire race of people based on the actions of this one man. That's what makes it a racist statement - your assumption that black people are killers.

I'm not defending a murderer. I'm condemning you for smearing the entire black race as killers.

Racism is a distortion of reality, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that you distort other aspects of reality too. What a sick, twisted little mind you have.

Most if not all liberals are racist against blacks and hispanics or racist against people who aren't "their" religion. Also liberals always hide their racism by trying to lower standards for other people based on their race, color, creed or religion.

This is complete nonsense. I certainly acknowledge that racism knows no political boundaries, but concern for minorities, the poor, the disabled, and the elderly isn't racism.

Creating and maintaining a social safety net is just basic decency. It's also our social obligation as a society, and if the private sector and religion isn't getting the job done, it falls to the government to pick up the slack.

The right has redefined "racism" to give themselves cover and to shift the blame to the left. If you buy that nonsense, you've been listening to too much Fox "news" and AM radio.

Concerns are one thing but making an uneven playing ground by lowering the standards based on race, religion, color or creed is racism. And that makes much more sense then you saying...

It is not the job of the Fed Govt to dole out social or economic justice, most people will accept some taxing to those who cannot help themselves but the Fed Govt. has taken it too far. If it continues then there won't be a Fed Govt. nor will there people to take from because those who are in the higher bracket will simple find ways to hide their earnings or move abroad.
Because you have no respect of other peopleís opinions you choose to belittle them as if somehow that will change the minds of people who you disagree with and when someone calls you on your racism then you get offended as if "How can I be a racist when Iím a Liberal"?
You think that because someone is a conservative that they are just being racist. That is the most ridiculous and offensive thing I have ever heard a Liberal say. It speaks volumes in how racism is embedded in Liberal thinking. IMO, I think you should reevaluate what you think about people and before you call them a racist try to understand what they are saying instead of what color of skin they are.

When people are systematically disadvantaged by society, it's incumbent on society to remedy that. The playing field IS uneven - the measures you oppose are seeking to LEVEL it.

Yes, it absolutely is the job of the federal government. That's what the government is for - ensuring justice, fairness, and equality.

Nonsense. The government receives less in taxes than they have been in 50 years.

I'm not trying to change minds. I'm confronting lies with the truth. It's up to everyone to choose if they'll believe the truth or lies. Unfortunately, many, many of you wingnuts seem to prefer lies.

What racism have you or anyone else called me on? Please show me my racist comments.

No, I think that when someone posts something racist that it's racist. I never accuse anyone of being racist simply because they're a conservative.

Racism is racism and I call it out wherever I see it. It's not my fault that it almost always comes from the right. Your claim of racism being "embedded in liberal thinking" is complete nonsense. It's the product of rightwing revisionism.

And if you look closely, I call comments racist, not people (at least not until they have a long, repeated patten of racist comments. Then it's clear what they are and I simply truthfully name it.)

And how do I know what color anyone's skin is here? Here you are judge solely on what you say, not how you look.

It's not in the US Constitution nor is it outlined in the preamble to level the playing field for any peticular race, color, creed or religion. If it were then some liberal would have already tried to do what you're saying. Part of this is the fight on Obamacare and how it is to forced on Americans was through its taxing authority, not under the Interstate Commerce Clause, as the administration had argued.

In closing here is your blanket racist comment...

Sorry friend, calling out racism isn't racist. And pointing out who the racists are isn't racist.

You don't get to just redefine words to fit your political agenda. You don't get to just start calling people racist because you don't like what they say. Words have meaning, and you're using that word WRONG.

And one more thing - leveling the playing field is entirely constitutional. The Supreme Court says so.

I called exactly what it is. When people make decisions based on ones race then its "Racism"! and those who do it are called "Racist" Itís also racism when you level the playing field based on race and trying to level it based on race is NOT Constitutional. Please show us where the Supreme Court says that or the Constitution. Affirmative Action decisions won't be posted until spring at the earliest. So if they haven't decided on it then where do you see that it's Constitutional to base playing fields on ones race?

Guess what. "Conservatives" are not a race. Saying that most racists are conservative CAN'T be a racist statement since I was identifying political ideology and not race.

First, thanks for admitting that the playing field isn't level for all races.

Second, you're just flat-out wrong. When there has been systematic bias against a particular race, correcting that bias isn't racism. It's justice.

Discrimination based on race is unconstitutional. Correcting that discrimination IS constitutional.

As to Supreme Court decisions, please see:

- Korematsu v. U.S.(1944)
The Court in this case upheld the conviction of an American of Japanese descent, who had been prosecuted for remaining in California after a 1942 presidential order designating much of the west coast a "military area", and requiring relocation of most Japanese-Americans from California (among other west coast states)

- Shelley v. Kraemer (1948)
This decision held that "racially restrictive covenants" in property deeds are unenforceable. In this case, the "covenants" were terms or obligations in property deeds that limited property rights to Caucasians, excluding members of other races.

- Brown v. Board of Education (1954)| Case Background (from U.S. Courts)
In this landmark case, the Court prohibited racial segregation of public schools.

- Brown v. Board of Education II (1955)
This decision quickened the process for implementing the anti-segregation orders issued in "Brown I."

- Bailey v. Patterson (1962)
The Court in this case prohibited racial segregation of interstate and intrastate transportation facilities.

- Loving v. Virginia (1967)
This decision holds that state laws prohibiting inter-racial marriage are unconstitutional.

- Jones v. Mayer Co.(1968)
The Court held in this case that federal law bars all racial discrimination (private or public), in sale or rental of property.

- Lau v. Nichols (1973)
The Court found that a city school system's failure to provide English language instruction to students of Chinese ancestry amounted to unlawful discrimination.

- University of California Regents v. Bakke (1978)
The Court decides that a public university may take race into account as a factor in admissions decisions.

- Batson v. Kentucky (1986)
This decision holds that a state denies an African-American defendant equal protection when it puts him on trial before a jury from which members of his race have been purposefully excluded.

- Grutter v. Bollinger (2003)
In this case, the Court finds that a law school's limited "affirmative action" use of race in admissions is constitutional.

For the cowardly, name-changing raging nerd bigot:

https://www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=off&am...

Confronting racism isn't racist.

Combating racial discrimination isn't racist.

Pointing out when someone says something racist isn't racist.

I'm sorry that you don't like reality, but you don't get to just make up your own. Learn to cope with it, loser.

Lowering the bar for someone based on race or gender is RACISM! If you don't or can't comprehend that then you're a racist as well because if someone lowered the bar for someone who was white then liberals like you would be screaming racism. You're liberal stance of "I can't be racist because I'm black, red, yellow, or brown". You canít have two or more different standards for each race of people. It's you who doesn't live in the real world. Spew all the names, slurs and childish remarks but it doesn't change the racism in your head.
Being black, red, yellow or brown doesnít give you a free pass to step in front of other people because of your color.

When a group has been systematically disadvantaged by society, then society has the moral obligation to remedy it.

Your white privilege is blinding you to the advantages you have every single day over minorities. Your white privilege is causing you to view leveling the playing field as unfair advantage for those on the bottom.

You don't have to be that way, but it take courage to examine your own biases and stereotypes. It takes courage to take an honest look at the privilege you enjoy.

Do you have that courage? Can you be honest with yourself:
