Its your policies that we have lived by, it is your policies that dont work.

Unless you are first generation African that has imigrated to America, you are American. The correct term is "black" if you want to use race as a label.

Maybe so, but as a rule, Conservative politicians don't shout accusations of racism from the rooftops the way Liberals do.

But like the saying goes:
When your only weapon is a hammer, everything looks like a nail....

Yes and Republicans love to sweep anything that looks remotely racist under the nearest rug. Again, you can blame Democrats and liberals all you want, but the Republicans don't get off the hook because you are willing to over look their racial flaws.

But saying they shout it is not the same as saying they wrongly shout it.

I fully understand that the right does not like to talk about racism, but it does happen and it seems many on your side would rather sweep it under the rug than talk about it.

I mean even when it clearly happens and this forum has plenty of threads to back up my point, the immediate response is " no one condones this, move on already". And in some cases, it is still denied by many on your side.

Maybe you should expand on some of those "policies" that exist in the south that don't work for blacks, but do work for whites? I assume that all people are equal under the law.

The OP and consequent respondents are the ones who said the policies dont work, he was just trying to attack Dems and not Republicans.

If you believe the policies do work, regardless of who is governing the population, then your fight should be with them, not me.

so i look forward to your response to them.

Hence, the conservative disdain for education.

Liberals don't sweep racism under the rug?

They're absolutely guilty of this. Racist comments made about Black Conservatives seem to always get a pass. They're treated like 'traitors' for not voting or acting 'how they're expected to' or they're accused of being puppets for rich White Republicans, both of which are horribly racist.

Herman Cain, Allen West, Mia Love, Stacey Dash, etc. each recently experienced great amounts of hatred for their political beliefs, but for some reason it's not considered racism to call someone an Uncle Tom. These incidents are quickly forgotten or flat-out ignored because it's politically inconvenient for the party of tolerance to so openly display their hatred for those who don't agree with them.

anyone notice how conservatives always pretend racism doesnt exist, yet we have conservatives slandering mandela in another thread, conservatives not saying anything about white cops mocking blacks on camera, and conservatives not saying anything about the miami garden white cops arresting a black man 258 times for trespassing at his place of employment

conservatives sweep racism under the rug because the true conservative base are white males who dont like black people. you cant fight racism and be a conservative anymore. you never see conservatives say that racism is wrong.

these same whites whine about tsa, yet champion stop and frisk.
