You mean hypocrisy like democratic presidential candidate who cheats on his wife while she's dying of cancer?

The culture I mentioned is much more on display in the inner city, at least that has been my observation... which I admit is limited because I avoid places which are statistically shown to be more prone to violent crime.
Read a book called black rednecks and white liberals. A lot of this roughneck culture is really redneck in origin.

This explains so much about your posting history.

But at least the Democratic party doesn't pretend to be on a moral high horse.

I will give President George W Bush credit for having a more diverse cabinet than President Obama but the issue is larger than just how many minorities a POTUS appointed to his staff. In my opinion, the GOP did one of the worst things possible by appointing Michael Steele to RNC Chair after (or as a response to) the election of Barack Obama. We don't want tokenism(this is not a reference to Rice or Powell or Rubio but to Steele)...we want a permanent seat at the decision making table.

For many minorities we have two options...

patronization = Democrats
marginalization/vilification = Republicans

Yes, they do....you don't know where to look. Read throw them all out, or recognize the fact they cheat in taxes or put their kids in private schools.

And Republicans do not. They want to deny equality and freedom and invade the personal lives of citizens.
