Nonsense. No Republicans "caused the Civil Rights Act." What's that even supposed to mean?

Both Moderate Republicans (an extinct animal, alas) and non-Southern Democrats voted for the Civil Rights Act. Among Dems, ONLY Dixiecrats voted against it. you know this, but choose to lie and distort history. WHY??

Are yo really that stupid to say the Civil Rights Act of 1964 didn't pass due the republicans, especially when the liberals like KKK Byrd, Al Gore Sr. and Senator Fullbright fillibustered 57 straight hours against it coming to a vote. You are a lying scum merchant.

Hate crime laws add penalties for crimes motivated by race. They do exclude whites.

Hate crimes apply to race- including whites. Blacks have been prosecuted for hate crimes against whites.

Murder, assault, battery, etc can ALL be considered a hate crime against whites IF (and "if" is the key word) the crime was motivated my racial bias. Same goes for whites commiting hate crimes against blacks- prosecutors must prove the crime was motivated by racial bias.

The FBI has the statistics on racially motivated hated crimes; including those when the victim was white.

Ok, let's see: Bad Things the republican'ts have done:
1. Ann Coulter only because she is a 'thing'
2. Sarah Palin too
3. Republicans approved the use of atrocities in our holding facilities..so torture (Bush Presidency)
4. Endless lobbying for 'Fracking'
5. Unabated lobbying for outsourcing American jobs
6. Unabated tax breaks for the wealthy
7. This is a 'NOT' done..Anything For gay rights
8. In general - promote the extreme right wing to their own ends, not for the USA.
9. Gave Halberton exclusive rights to rebuilding and security in IRAQ when there were other cheaper alternatives (Cheney) BTW that was a disaster.
10. Sold the IRAQ war to the Americcan public under false pretenses.
11. ignored and fought against the KYOTO accord.
12. Ann Coulter again

Should I go on?

Nice to see the highest court in the country has the spare time to peruse special interest groups numbering about 3% of the population. I guess no other pressing legal issues are on the docket concerning the other 97% of the country that need to be addressed.
Are basic civil rights only to be granted to folks based on their percentage of the population?

What a strange idea.

Why are you the only race to never assimilate into American society? Why are you the only race to require affirmative action? Get off your butt and earn respect, you sure as hell can't demand it from prison or ghettos.

Your an immature idiot. You asked for an answer and have no other rebuttals beside insults and racist comments. So responding in kind, I should have expected such a response from an ignorant typical republican't c(_)nt.

Great report. It was interesting that the majority of hate crimes in general are mostly in blue states. Go figure.

Your retort was Palin was a negative, and an author was a negative...nothing you listed affected america, just your opinion of what you didn't like. You struggle to maintain a discussion with adults. Give it up.
