So you don't think white people can have an opinion? I've noticed you have randomly brought up white skin color several times now as though simply being white makes me less credible. That sounds racist to me.

Again, i'm not 'telling' non white people anything. Nobody is required to agree with my view that white racism isn't much of a problem in this country at this time. I've cited the unemployment stats as evidence and I could point out several other things that support my view.

I think oftentimes today accusations of racism are used to bully people out of valid opinions and stances on issues. For example, there are people today who say requiring photo ID to vote is racist. So if you are concerned about voter fraud, and want photo ID to help prevent it, you get called a racist.

I want to point out that there are minorities that vote Republican. Two black men have recently run for the GOP presidential nomination. One of them was a brain surgeon. If a brain surgeon doesn't think GOP voters are racist, the GOP is probably not racist. They don't just let anybody operate on people's brains. I don't think a bunch of white racists could deceived a world renowned brain surgeon who invented a new technique to separate conjoined twins.

Dog whistle alert!

Iím saying that white people donít have the right perspective on white racism. Amazing though. Youíre a special person and your opinion on racism is just as valuable as any non white personís.

I must have missed that time when all the black people in the country voted Ben Carson their spokesperson.

I never said Ben Carson is spokesperson for all black people. Do you really think I don't understand most black voters vote Democrat?

You don't even know that I'm white. I have never disclosed my race on here. You keep talking about skin color. It is irrelevant to my points on here.

You haven't provided any evidence that white people don't have the 'right' perspective on white racism. You could not prove that assertion in court.

Very relevant and Iím sure youíre of middle eastern descent. Probably from one of the banned countries.

Are you saying there are no Middle Eastern Republican voters?

One of the biggest conservatives in this country is Dinesh D'Souza, an immigrant from India, and he has had several books and movies arguing against the Big Switch political theory that you pushed on here.

Not what I’m saying at all.

Just so you know, India isn’t in the Middle East. I guess that wasn’t in his book?

It is right next to Pakistan. My point is there are non white immigrant Republicans.

I think Dinesh agrees with everything I have posted on here. He's not white. Keep in mind he went to prestigious Ivy League colleges.

Not in the Middle East either. This may explain why the rednecks are always beating up the wrong people.

I wonder if he agrees with you about where India and Pakistan are located?

Maybe this is the case you were looking for against affirmative action?

I don't think you have any evidence that I'm a redneck.

It is funny how you act like you are more informed than me but you linked an article that tried to use Strom Thurmond switching to GOP as the basis for the big switch theory even though the rest of those segregationists didn't switch.
