And they wonder why we don't support Democraps and longer. When the future president of the United States "secretly" meets the the most Racist black man in US history, it's crickets from the Dems. They probably believe that Obama actually deserves the Nobel Death prize!

As for the guy in that photo, I'm not surprised to know about individuals like him. I've been around individuals who have called me racial slurs to my face. Attitudes like this have not died out. Less people have such attitudes. However, there are still people with such attitudes. Some are open about, and then there are some who are passive aggressive about it.
I grew up a few doors down from the Shirley family from 1990 to 1995ish. It makes a whole lot of sense now why I couldn't get a single neighborhood kid to join my two-man radio flyer parade on MLK Day.

These were the people who dispatched the local Klan to burn a cross on my lawn, and their children and grandchildren made my life a living hell in school as the only Jewish person they'd ever met. We didn't even have a single black kid in school until about 1997, and she was routinely left out of birthday parties and got less valentines than everyone else. I didn't understand until much later.

All Trump supporters now, of course.

One thing I feel particularly vindicated about is that my former high school now has one of the biggest Muslim quiz bowl teams in the state. Yes, we will absolutely replace you.

Reading this filled me with alot of rage. Obviously, burning that cross on your lawn was designed to instill fear into your family. It was a message of "leave of else". I'm not surprised about the anti-Semtism. The KKK hates Jews.

I also think about that Black girl. She got exposed to alot of passive-aggressive racism. I have to wonder what went on in the minds of the KIDS, and the keyword here is kids. Kids can be very cruel.

I grew up on the other side of the metro area, in Paulding County. I dealt with more "in your face" racism. I also went through alot of bullying, some of it of a racial nature. Unlike Forsyth County, Paulding County did have Black people living there when I moved there. Just not that many. The county was about 3-4% Black when I got there. And some parts of the county were basically infested with the Klan. Paulding County had more of a "redneck" reputation. Some people are still flying Confederate flags. For that reason, it is interesting that Paulding County is now 15% Black. Then again, I kind of know why.

By the way, Trump won Paulding County with close to 70% of the population voting for Trump.

I'd like to think that many people in Forsyth County today aren't virulent racists. On the other hand, I also wonder how many people moved to Forsyth County with the expressed purpose of getting away from all Black people. It borders Fulton County and even in places like Alpharetta and Roswell there is a sizable Black population.

Not every person who votes Republican is a racist. I do notice a pattern. There are people who are involved in politics/ran for political office, who have ties to white supremacist groups, or were openly part of a white supremacist group. I notice a large number of those types ran as Republicans.

The question is this. Why?

Good to realize something so obvious, but arent they "racist" by definition since they dont agree with liberals?
