Agreed. Except you left out how many African Slaves were alive and owned by white men.
Colonists offered no education to Africans etc. Just rape, beatings and starvation and torture.


Doesn't matter who was Educated 1st and their accomplishments.

The thread is accurate and valid other than some misspelling. You as e a Republican have no valid reply except to try and destroy the character of the OP.

You fail.

I would love to listen to private calls by white democrats.
They never are recorded.

Seems like white democrats who think black people incapable of getting photo ID to vote have low opinion of black people
I accidentally gave you a rep point.


You guys own it and cannot deflect and deny it. MOST Republicans are very RACIST.

So, this is a new low for lefties.....we are going to go back to people who are now dead, and cite them as being current. You cannot put enough in any post to show how this is not right.....


Anyway, continue lefties......you'll surely paving the way to a win in 2020....

Reagan remember was the president who gave amnesty to illegals, something even many democrats today would balk at. So his presidency was a mixed, but he didn't govern directly as an overt racist.
I don't think 'many' democrats oppose amnesty. I think most Democrats claim it is bigotry to oppose amnesty.

Trump has never banned all Muslims from entering the country. He wants to band immigration from countries with an Islamic terrorism problem. His issue is with terrorism, not peaceful religious people.

That's an assertion you could not prove in court which means it is slander.

If we are racist, why doesn't segregation still exist and lynchings, etc. Why do some minorities vote for Republicans.

Ben Carson is a world renowned brain surgeon. He isn't bright enough to see Republicans are racist, we need to defer to Al Sharpton? I don't think so.

Your party was the one in power during the slavery, segregation and slavery eras and it still uses the same name.

I don't think comparing somebody to an animal is racist. It is an insult. That is an inference that you are making.

Liberals call Republicans stupid and cavemen every day....it is the same exact sentiment as calling somebody a monkey.

So did Joe Biden. He was right there with them.

Why aren't you condemning him. He's running for office unlike those dead men.



Yeah, he's that old.

The Bob Jones case was complicated in that Bob Jones was accepting minority students at the time who knew the university opposed interracial marriages yet still enrolled at the college. There wasn't discrimination against the students in admissions.

I think a private college has the right to have an opinion on interracial marriage if this is a free country.

There is typically a lot of nuance in legal cases that liberals don't see or don't want to see because they are so eager to cry racism.

Nixon enforced school integration but liberals are on here calling him a racist, but they don't call LBJ a racist for racist comments that he made.
