MLK's dream has been shattered by the libs. They're still judging based on the color of skin and not the content of character.

Notice how dems talk a good game about inclusion, but when it gets to nut-cutting time, they go tribal.

Thats the real racism IMO.

It is indeed. There is some poetic justice when they play the race card on each other, though.

Heaven help us if the Democrats would not do the PC thing whatever that might be. We must be inclusive - we must have diversity. Kumbayah! Who cares, for heaven's sake.
