KKKs are also Republicans, and maybe more often Republican than Democrata, But it's not identical with either party.
NAACP is neither Repubican nor Democrat, and has members in both parties.
Sorry, I should have said Majority are Democrat. I also left out Black Panther party "are mostly Democrat". I see more racism, in the Democratic party than I do the Republican or Tea party. Just to be clear, I'm not associated with any party, nor do I see myself in the future to be a member.

Quote from The Chairman of the New Black Panthers, Malik Zulu Shabazz;

“I voted for him because Rush Limbaugh was strongly against him,” Shabazz went on to say.“Sean Hannity was strongly against him. The Klu Klux Klan, the Arian Nation, the Nazis, the godd**ned crackers in Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. I’m talking about rednecks all over the country were infuriated.”

All of the Democrats in Congress and the White House are extremely rich. The color of a man's skin does not indicate his talent, or lack of, for what kind of job he does as the President of the country and the original comment that started this thread shows an amazing ignorance of history and current events. Anti-Federalists were people who didn't want the President to have so much power that he would evolve into a King, something most Americans still don't want. The current trend of calling white people racists simply because they don't agree with black people on certain issues, is itself racist. The kind of things some black people say and do against white people make them no better than the DEMOCRATS who were saying and doing those kinds of things back in the 1950s. The KuKluxKlan were made up of DEMOCRATS. Slave owners in the 19th c. were ALL DEMOCRATS. Democrats in Washington now are also for the very rich (themselves) and don't care about the middle class but they know how to use words that make it sound like they do so they can buy your vote. In Washington, it's all about power and money, not about the middle class, and if you think any of them care about you, or your class of people -whatever that is, you're dreaming.

What liberals refuse to acknowledge is that they are encouraging racism toward whites by non-whites when they ignore blatant anti-white acts and/or words. White liberals not only encourage non-whites to hate whites, white liberals also hate their own race. Yep, strange but true. White liberals are anti-white, but they lack the balls to admit it.

That may have been true many DECADES ago. Most Klansmen, at least in the South, were probably Dixiecrats (if they affiliated with a political party) until the REpublican Party was hijacked by the Right. WE forget that the Republicans were once more LIBERAL than the Democrats.(Even Karl Marx favored Lincoln, Republicans and Reconstruction, and obviously not for its consevatism). But in more contemporary times, Klansmen are more likely to be Republican if they adhere to any political party.
But the Republican Party shited far right, its first steps in that directed being seen with Barry Goldwater. Dixiecrats moved from the Democratic Party, which they thought too liberal and catering too much to the Blacks, into the Republican Party.
By 1980, one the the KKK leaders stated that the Reagan program couldn't be any better unless the Klan had created it.
As for racism, that can be found in BOTH parties. But it is more pronounced among the Republicans and within the Right in general.

Guess where all the black, brown, yellow and red racism is...

But that racism isn't bad because that gets the Ds the easy votes...

Hell, if I didn't know any better I would swear white liberals were white black supremacists with lines like what have come out of MSNBC's white commentators' mouths lately.

and that is not even fraction of them because the news leaves out material that could easily be associated as a hate crime against white people by the public.

As usual, your incoherent jibberish is irrelevant to the conversation.

That post was an accurate description of the mental faculties of PTWB. The post of "iamcurious" wasn't stupid, but rather dexcriptive of the stupidity of PTWB. His mind, as evidenced by his posts, cannot grasp anything the complexity of which exceeds the boundaries of the second grade.
And whoever gave PTWB's post a "brilliant" evaluation must be as mentally incompetent as he.

As usual you are put in your place and you are too afraid to admit that I was the one who did it.

Your stupid posts were talking about WHITE racism being from both the left and right but more 'militant' on the right, and my response is that ultimately black, brown, yellow and red racism all concentrated completely on the left overrides YOUR jibberish, as well as this pathetic thread.

Without the mecha and black power groups and their members the left would barely be able to pull out a win in California, much less Ohio.
