his comment was racist.

If he had said "they were out there barefooted, jumping up and down like monkeys" ... would still have been pretty darn racist, but at least you could claim he wasn't referring to humans as animals.

If Liberals could see both sides of every issue, they wouldn't be Liberals.

Now you sound like Nixon or Ronnie

It isn't racist unless he described all black people that way. His comments were about people who had voted to recognize Communist China over Taiwan.

He was beating up on them for their ideology, not their skin color.

You want to make it racist for partisan reasons.

Leftwingers routinely described Bush as a monkey. By your own logic, that's racist.

I think it's just a generic insult.

That was after he left office.

He didn't when he was watering down civil rights enforcement at the DOJ.

At least you're the same person. You had none coming in and still don't.

btw You picked the wrong person to criticize when it comes to credibility.

When liberals self describe as progressive, they are implying non-liberals are not progressive, primitive, cavemen.

It is no different than calling somebody a monkey.

I'm a boomer. Posters here love to state how racism is going to disappear once we boomers are gone. Guess what? The boomers grew up during a time when it all changed. We saw on our televisions how disgusting it was when cops would sic dogs on black people or they were beaten bloody. We learned what language we should and shouldn't use, and how we shouldn't judge and that people are people regardless of color. I haven't personally heard a white person use the N word or any other disparaging name about black people since the 1960's. That's not a matter of being PC to us - it's just what we learned was right. And despite what some posters think - when we die you lose the generation that saw how bad it was for black folks. We didn't live it - but it was right there on our tv's because back then the news didn't filter anything. We ate dinner right after watching young men with their bodies half blown off being carted off the fields of Viet Nam and right after the cops beat black people just for sitting in at a protest. These visuals often led to dinner conversations about morality that I doubt are taking place today.

It's not a matter of being PC - it's what we learned was right.

The PC nonsense we disavow has to do with b.s. concepts like 'cisgender', 'white privilege', 'mansplaining', 'manspreading', 'verbal violence' 'microaggressions', etc. These are made up words to try and control - and thinking people who aren't on the fringe aren't buying it.

For the above reasons, I AM disappointed Reagan made that comment, even though I think most politicians are scum. I thought better of him, even though he didn't get my vote.

Twas White boomers that teach racism to their kids and grandkids.

Come to Mo ,Ks, Ar and YOU WILL HEAR IT PLENTY.

The ignorance on display these days is astounding. This post here pretty much sums it up.
