That equals and justifies being referred to as a "Coon" as a Black man with ideas.

She's black so she can use the word coon and that's OK - but if a white were to say that - you'd be jumping all over them - doesn't matter their political affiliation.

If blacks don't want to be stigmatized in society than they better quit using the words that they themselves use to determine who is racist. I'm sick of the double standards when it comes to the verbiage that can be thrown around in the black community - but isn't tolerated if anyone other than a black person uses it.
It is just as racist when a black person says it. Only a racist thinks that people are exempt from being racists, based on their race. That is a fundamentally racist idea.

Black leftists are some of the most racist people I've met. And I write this as a black constitutional conservative.

Your own link says the GOP in Kentucky has that mentality believing that black people who vote for Democrats cant think for themselves.

Again, do you have a quote, or are you just making that up?

No they wouldnt. This very thread was started with that quote in it and no one called it out but me. Conservatives make threads like this all the time and no one says anything.

I get you want to protect your side, but the very thread you are in is an example to the contrary of what you claim.

Yes, I made a post about it on the first page, the quote was in your OP.

Care to provide examples? Here we have this case right here. We also have Symone Sanders telling her CNN audience that we "don't need white people leading the Democratic party." The racist terms "uncle tom" and "hankerchief head" and "race sell out" in the context of black racial politics is used nearly exclusively by black leftists against black conservatives because we dare to vote or think a different way "rolleyes". Black leftists support candidates and policies who are against education reform in order to protect teachers unions, but such a failure to reform has resulted in countless black children being forced to attend failing schools.

The list goes on and on and on.

I know you felt you had to make that comeback, but really there is no comparison.

What if one of your beliefs is that black and Hispanic people continue to be treated wildy unfairly? Then can it be about race?
