Most media is opinion, is anti-Trump, and goes to extraordinary lengths to act as an opposition political party against the WH.

Against rump is only being a Patriotic American.

Have you considered the fact of only 1/3 the education dollars was/is given to Black schools, Driving while Black. etc etc etc.

I'm not in the slightest excusing any of this repulsive language, but we need to understand that growing up in the 1910s and 1920s unfortunately these terms were extremely common during his childhood.

Reagan to his credit didn't overtly govern as a racist president, in the same way as Woodrow Wilson did introducing resegregation into the workplace or Trump looking to ban all muslims coming into America.

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.
Reagan tipped his hand in Philadelphia, Mississippi.

After that speech and appearance, there was no doubt that he hated blacks.

Because so many people BLACK and White WERE ALIVE THEN AND NOW. I remember

How do you know we didn't. I did.

I’m all for using history as a tool to help us make better decisions today. But this is nothing more than scratching the scabs of ancient wounds in order to fire up people today. Pointless endeavor.

Judging people of the past by today’s standards is wrong. In fact today’s standards are indeed wrong. Your right I am younger than you but I did grow up in the 70s and 80s and I remember a much less uptight world, a better world. President Reagan was part of that, he was a great American.
it's also possible to say "I was wrong 48 years ago. I never should have referred to the African delegates that way, and it was wrong. I do not feel that way anymore; thankfully I have learned a lot."

says a guy who thinks anybody who doesn't have his leftwing views is a racist and seems to have an obsession with racism

I know I don’t. Blacks need to redirect their energy to their own people now. Their cities and families are FUBAR. Fix them, and stop riding the time machine back to bogeymanland.


I am White and 67 yrs old. Do you have any redirection thoughts for me?

A monkey is incapable of getting a photo ID to vote.

Democrats think a significant number of black people are incapable of getting photo ID to vote.

Aren't Democrats indirectly saying black people are no better than a monkey.
