I am not a "racist against slavics." Nor did I insult legal immigrants. What I am sick of is people like you who did not grow up here, do not understand the subtleties of American history or American identity, and think you know something about what any of that means, when you know nothing. Your commentary is indicative of complete ignorance of what it means to be American.

I sympathize with Trump voters. I am friends with them. I work with them. They feel safe talking to me about their choice for Trump and safe making blank statements to me about Hispanics, Blacks or immigrants. White people had a huge impact on my life, though not always a direct positive experience, but mostly good. I enjoy hearing their point of view. But you are right. Trump voters come from all kinds of backgrounds. And you are right that race relations have soured since Obama.

What I am standing for is for you to consider for one moment that these statues are not how you connect to Americans from a different history. I don't believe the statues should be taken down unless something else can replace it or stand along side it that can represent other people who were impacted by those times.
In 50 years the Twin Tower memorial will have to be taken down because it will offend muslums. The way things are going I can see this happening.

The liberals are now implying that the southern people and keeping their statues are a sign of racism and that their statues must come down. The left are calling the southern people traitors as if they are still the enemy. This is dangerous to hear this.

They are now dividing the country again to demand these statues are to be removed. It is as if they believe the south is racist yet the history of this country has long moved on.

The left is stirring up any hate they can through dividing us.. Those self righteous people who think they are fighting a cause are creating hate and division.. these so called do gooders are ratcheting it up and it will not be good for our nation.
Yah?


If you can run around spewing hate about the 'coastal elites" then why shouldn't we be able to point out the fact that the South is still fighting the civil war?


NO ONE is more divisive than the right wing in this country.

3. There are new Statues being commissioned today that will be up before the year is over.


I get that you dislike, maybe even hate the left., But you cant pretend like these statues are just of Southern Pride, they arent.

The South never fixed its race problem? I think you meant to say the country never fixed its race problem.

Who are you kidding? Some of the most racist people I have ever met live in the northern half of the country.

Fix your own problems before you start working on the problems of other Americans.

You guys referring to people who are best described as "anti-left." You aren't right wing, as that would require some commitment to an ideology or principles. I've seen no evidence of that. You just hate the left. And that's all you are.

Well, to be fair..she loves Trump
