Does that mean you think the country has no race problems?

Where do you live" North, East, South, West.
With all due respect, Arguing for the sake of argument is a waste of time.

The left picked the city.. Jason Kessler who worked for CNN was the organizer, told the crowd what to chant, what to say, what to do.. Kessler was an Obama plant or mole..for the left.. taking place in a very liberal city.. they had Antifa and BLM organize as well.

Reporters saw the police stand down as they beat each other as the cameras rolled. Made good talking points for CNN.. A big set up! And of course blamed on Trump.

I am saying that the South has a race problem that many dont want to acknowledge .
The problem is people like you who say the south has a race problem and doesn't recognize it. Did New York City recognize their race problem because the Terry Stops were racist since it was done overwhelmingly against blacks and latinos? I could go on and on about riots and unrest in New York but that doesn't fit the agenda. I haven't brought up Boston yet either. lol

Old McRacist had a farm, ee-eye-ee-eye oh.

Here a racist, there a racist, everywhere a racist racist...


Does that word carry any weight anymore? It's been so overused I just laugh when I hear it, unfortunately--because there really are legitimate cases of racism, but you'll never see them. They've been buried under a mountain of trivial dung.

No, Soros hired Kessler after he caught wind of him after reading Ms. Clinton's emails about Bengazi. Soros recently purchased a million shares of CNN but was upset that MSNBC was getting higher ratings so he had Kessler do what you said above. Oh, Obama had Kessler stay at his new house in DC (the one Soros paid for - so the Obamas owe Soros). Anyway, Kessler has been staying with the Obamas until Mr. Obama bought him a bus ticket to Charlottesville. If CNN stock now goes up, the Obamas have paid their debt to Soros or at least the Obamas hope so... Stay tuned...

So are you saying Trump is a 'plant' for the left like Kessler is?

Trump was as Democratic as they come -- buddies with Clinton, could care less about the Supreme Court, abortion, gay marriage and the Constitution -- just bow at his feet.

He wanted to win so he ran as a Republican. Are you saying Kessler couldn't get a job or notariety working for the liberals so he pretends to be a conservative now and is working under cover.

Wow -- you guys should be writing books.

I am a minority - mixed race to be exact (half black and half white). I live in the South, was born here but spent quite a bit of time living up North for high school and college. I felt more racism in the North personally. A lot more actually. It was so ridicously segregated up there. I could go to towns where I wouldn't see a single non-white face and I would definitely feel like I wasn't welcome. My college actually put almost all black people in the same dorm - the one wayyyy on the other side of campus. So yeah, I agree with that poster's assertion.

At least in the South, it doesn't feel as segregated and I work alongside white and black people all the time and no one bats an eye. Stores, neighborhoods, country clubs, social clubs, my kid's school, the same. Churches - totally still segregated. The South is by no means perfect but it's not this uber racist place so many people try to make it out to be. The North talks a big game of racial harmony but the reality on the ground, so to speak, is far different.
