Apart from that the post was mostly facts (not opinion) about current US immigration regulations, a topic on which I'm quite well informed, due to recent personal experience of the US immigration process.

Well, he knows that you are Canadian and just decides to twist and make things up in order to suit his views and outlandish arguments. Reveals xenophobia and paranoia to say the least.

And it is mildly entertaining, actually...

Bingo. You're claiming immigration is a moral issue when it isn't.

I'm not playing the guessing game. It's not hard to tell someone's race from the posts they make on this forum. When they espouse radical views that could only logically come from one racial group, it's even easier.

Wow, and I thought your over-use of "racist" in attempting to insult me was lame...

I concur and I would also add that generally on this forum it is the same posters that are always throwing racist this and racist that. To deny that ALL of these posters arent black is laughable.

We know that and that has been affirmed over and over in this thread.

This sort of ties in with the other thread about the fact that blacks in America are increasingly less a "bloc."

Disintegration: The Splintering of Black America

So maybe the black vote won't be as decidedly Democratic as it has been in times past. It still seems to me that the Right has got a lot of ground to make up if they want to attract large numbers of black voters.

Well, I don't know if you can say it's for racial reasons, but racial issues are often cited as a means to get out the vote for or against a particular candidate. In our local elections, for instance, when white candidates have offered for Mayor or County Commission Chairman, the big guns (John Lewis, Shirley Franklin, Andrew Young, etc) are typically brought out to remind voters that this would be like returning to the fire hoses and attack dogs of Selma.

That ad was one of the worst I have ever seen. Can you imagine if a white candidate tried to run such a devisive racial ad leading up to an election. They would be crucified. Yet for Blacks they get away with it.
