A FAIR Question, although I reject your racial accusations as unfounded.

The PROBLEM is that the Republican Party is SPLIT with the neo-Cons and Liberal Republicans being underlings of a GLOBALIST Oligarchy, and Republican Conservatives who cannot match the Oligarchy's PROPAGANDA Advantage; with the Oligarchy controling the MSM, Hollywood and Academia.

Take "Immigtration Reform"! It is all GLOBALIST OLIGARCHY BS, as they are seeking to wreck the economy thru "immigration" when the FACT remains that the US Constitution already provides all the laws that are needed. Obama, of course, is under the thumb of the GLOBALIST Oligarchy and was put in the WH to further their agenda.

True Conservative are calling for BORDER Security, and that IS an example of Republicans offering a solution.

Ok, back that. There are 300 million people in the US. 13% of them are black. That is 39 million Blacks. Overlooking 39.8% of those Blacks are on welfare, leaving 60.2% in the workforce, we'll use the whole 39 million. One in a million would be 39. So you were saying only 39 white guys got passed over, in order to fill a position with a Black applicant due to Affirmative Action?
You really should put a little thought into what you post.

When Jim Crow laws where on the books in the South, the South ws poor backwards and losing populationand most major companies avoid the South. The South economy has grown since the end of Jim CRowand now has a growing population.. Do you think tech companies in Texas and North Carolina are going to want to see Jim crow laws come back and their Engineers from India and China leave?
Since both you and Prep work in the Medical/Nursing field, you should know many Hospital rely on Nurse from Asia.. Do you think rural Hospitals in the South are going to want to see those Nurses go home.
Come to think ofit since a lot f those Nurses are cute, do you think the local Red neck boys are going to want to see them put off limits?
Yes, I think many in the south would choose to return to segregation & institutionalized discrimination if they could.

They would gladly wave bye-bye to all those tech companies if it meant they could go back to the "good old days".

Just look at how they hold to anti-gay bigotry even though that costs them jobs.

Yes, they would choose bigotry over economic success any day.

Now if that doesn't prove who is more racist towards who I don't know what does!!!
Yes, George Zimmerman calls himself a Hispanic and is a regestered democrat.

http://weaselzippers.us/2012/03/27/narrative-...

"The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat."

"George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, Voter ID #107862946, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents."

"According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic."
----------
Of course, the DOJ will NOT press any HATE CRIME charges in this case,*IF* Zimmerman is found innocent, because he is Hispanic and Obama will have to come-up with some story to cover his Uncle Tom butt, with the black community.

Again, corporate America is making record profits and has been since the crash in 08. They are making record profits because they are paying out record low wages and the trickle down is quite obvious since we have the highest poverty rates in America since the Great Depression.
Thanks corporate America. Just remember, our demise will eventually be yours, too. Karma's a bitch that way.
And just who is forcing people to work at Walmart?

What happens if the govt forces businesses to pay a "living wage"- whatever the hell that is? Businesses will either cut employees, cut the wages of other employees making more than that, or raise prices of their product/services. CEOs are NOT going to take a pay cut.

Of course I suppose the govt could mandate CEO pay levels as well. After all, if they can dictate minimum pay, there is no reason they can't dictate maximum pay. And not just for CEOs etc, but for EVERY position in EVERY company.

So you wouldn't mind the govt deciding what you should make each year?

Bottom line, if you can't live on $10/hr, then I'd suggest you make yourself worth more to a potential employer, or cut your expenses, or get another job.

<quoted text>Ah, but a history of animal abuse DOES indicate a lack of respect for life, which would also be needed to be a serial killer. There is a causational relationship involved.

No such relationship exists simply by being black.

In other words, being black in no way causes people to commit gun violence.

Now being poor DOES have a causational relationship with committing crimes, because being poor can lead people to crime to get what they can't otherwise get, or being a criminal can directly lead to you being poor.

So since being black doesn't cause you to commit crimes or have a low IQ, then there is no reason to break down the numbers by race, unless you're attempting to infer something about the entire race.
Try to twist my statement all you want. My statement is correct as written, and I stand behind it.

Read my post. Lol, you have a very hard time with comprehension don't you? Where did I state being black caused people to commit gun violence? Keep trying to put words in my mouth or imply my statements mean something other than they do. It makes you look pathetic.

Did I say being poor can't cause people to commit crime? This thread is about racism, not class or the economy.

You can keep on stating that till you're blue in the face. And you choose to, rather than scroll back to read the context of the post. You should probably stop being so lazy. You may contribute to the stereotype of liberals being lazy.

And just how do you define "living wage"?

Would a single person with no kids get paid less for doing the exact same job as a married person with 3 kids just because it might cost them less to live day to day?

How is that fair?

Who decides what's a "living wage"?

You already have moron who claim they can "barely get by" on $100k a year just because they CHOOSE to live an expensive lifestyle in an expensive city.

Would we have to pay McDonalds workers 6 figures just because they work/live in NYC or Chicago or Boston etc?

I was shocked when I was looking at Historical Documents and came across Jefferson's "Rough draft of the Declaration Of Independence". It dealt DIRECTLY with the issue os slavery:

BUT

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part2/2h33.html

"When the document was presented to the Continental Congress on July 1, 1776, both northern and southern slaveholding delegates objected to its inclusion, and it was removed. The only remaining allusion to the original paragraph on slavery is the phrase "He has excited domestic Insurrections among us," included in a list of grievances against the king."

Jefferson's ORIGINAL comments on Slavery:

"he has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it's most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemispere, or to incure miserable death in their transportation hither. this piratical warfare, the opprobium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian king of Great Britain.[determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold,] he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce [determining to keep open a market where MEN should be bought and sold]: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he had deprived them, by murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another."

The Democrats had to rely on the Tea Party as racists argument because the policies of Barack Obama have produced so little to brag about.
.
Since the Democrat Party has a weak intellectual structure, they could get away with this.
.
Tea Party types should have said, Fine, we're racists, that still leaves Obama as a lousy president with failed policies.
.
The current immigration situation is beyond rational. With the huge federal debt, it makes little sense to bring in poorly educated people and then give them benefits. Democrats can not justify their immigration policy beyond the vague statement "immigration is good for the economy". If it were so, they'd be talking up the proof like crazy.

Where's the law that says 13% of all students must be black?

Where's the proof that ANY of those black students got their spot over a more qualified white applicant?

Nope, all you've got are your racist assumptions.
