I've seen that video before, and I'm not sure how it proves liberals are racist.

Neoliberal is a buzzword Berniebros use to describe any liberal who's not a hardcore socialist

You might consider it soft racism. No one says "I hate ******s" but those interviewed in the first section do assume that Blacks are too stupid to get ID or know how to use the internet and too poor to have phones with data plans.

One recent President called it the soft bigotry of low expectations.

It's definately not.

Neoliberalism refers to economic liberalism.. In other words laissez-faire capitalism consisting of hardcore austerity measures, and cuts to public services. Such as major cuts to housing, healthcare, education.

Jesus are you really claiming the right-wing is less racist than the Left? The right-wing and its corporate media are the standard bearers of racism. Just check out this compilation of racist Fox News moments

Sure, white liberalism and liberalism in general as a ideology is very racist because it simply wants to kindly reform racist American capitalism.

This why people of color need to reject far-right wing racist republican fascism AND passive-racist democratic liberalism in favor of revolutionary socialism

Only the revolutionary socialism espoused by the the Black Panther Party will offer black people true liberation from the systematic genocide of white American capitalism.

The racist liberals are the Berniebros who don't care about social issues and only care about promoting socialism to white people

And even they are not racist the same way most Trump supporters are

If this story was just another person complaining about noise, I'd just roll my eyes and say "yeah, noise sucks, but what are you gonna do".

But since the race baiters are out saying "WOW A WHITE PERSON COMPLAINED, THEY MUST BE HITLER!!!" it pushes me onto this lady's side, even though I don't REALLY agree with her. And I guarantee there are a lot of people who think along these lines.

Race bait is counter productive to your own viewpoint.

1) When I was in Park Slope in the mid 90s (before it became THE Slope), a lady circulated a petition to ban softball on MS 51 schoolyard. She indicated that the tournaments were too much noise, and that beer bottles were abandoned in the playground.

I didn't sign the petition. However, she did have a point about the alcohol and beer bottles (many softball tournaments I've seen back in the day did play for beer! Normally, the winner got some 40s!). I did believe that a compromise could have been made to address the alcohol and bottles, without banning the entire tournament!

2) The last Sunday I was in Prospect Park in Brooklyn was last September. I didn't see the congas players that used to be present on Sunday Afternoons, normally from 3-8.

3) Speaking of congas, to be honest, how long did them congas go on all night in Marcus Garvey Park, in Harlem?

4) Some years back, I went to Madibas South African Restaurant, on DeKalb Avenue in Brooklyn. The band was made up of half David Letterman, have Paul Simon cats! I go there, sometime later on, and all I see is a one man bass band of Bakithi Kamalo, Paul Simon's former bassist! I ask him what happened to the band? He said the neighbors complained of the noise!
