Anyone can be criticized. There's a such thing as constructive criticism. If I were teaching someone with learning disabilities I might be inclined to gentle criticism at times.

I don't think the DNC views blacks as being lower in abilities . Many blacks have had to overcome a lot more obstacles than a lot of whites though.

So you want to control speech !!!

Accusing the GOP and all white people of racism meets your idea of good for one good for all !!!

Can't do any better than that without getting into the issues !!! Issues are the distraction that can't be talked about giving racism all the oxygen !!! Sweep rat infestation to the side and deal with racism until people forget rat infestation is the issue !!!

Say a White person says something like "From my experience, a person of [race] is or does such and such." If they say this but try not to generalize things about that race, think about whether or not the racist card being used against that White person is appropriate right there and then.

Do you truly believe that all criticism of POC is racist?

Do you think that the level of melanin in a person's skin should make the immune from any criticism?


If no......then why the knee jerk accusations as a matter of course?
" Should "people of color" be above criticism!" Most dems definitely think so.

Anyone should be able to critque whoever. I put blame on white liberals who made it a wrong think crime to not allow black people to be critiqued. And I say this not because I dislike white liberals, I love white liberals btw. I love all people. People have the right to critque whoever, just as long violent, hateful and offensive words are not being used.

Many on the the left haven't learned to do this yet.

What’s happening regarding the criticism of people of color today is that certain individuals want to divide us with the creation of scapegoats who are are targeted for every problem in this country. Simple minded rhetoric for the complex problems that exist in a multi racial society.
