I don't think anyone would deny that racism doesn't exist; hence this is a straw man.

For example, when Ayanna Pressley (D,MA) says "we don't need any more black faces that don't want to be a black voice," that is clearly racism. She's saying that thought and mentality must comport with skin color. That could serve as a good working definition of 'racism.'

And as Chicago PD chief Eddie Johnson said, when Jussie Smollett tried to pull off his hate crime hoax, the predictable result was racial tension and division (if he had succeeded).

What do you think of these examples of racism, Eli? I think I see people on the far left dismissing and brushing them off.

You are mistaken an opinion and Freedom of Speech for Racism.

Joining the NAACP or the ACLU is not Racism. But joining the US Chamber of Commerce is probably "seeking corporate rule and lack of responsibility". See what I did there???

No, I don't. I can't decipher what you even mean, or how it relates to my post to which you responded.

Is not an insistence that thought must comport with skin tone the epitome of 'racism?' Do you believe that all blacks should think alike, all whites should think alike, etc?

Diversity and open borders just doesn't work well, and the people who want it know it and don't want America to work well. They want an America different from the one the majority made.

No, they're not living in Bizarro World.

Really. They're NOT.

The $PLC is a scam. Did you read the article???

They listed the Family Research Council as a "hate group," a listing that was possessed by the gunman who shot up their offices.

Hope that helps.

Itís a sad, fear based xenophobia that Trump exposed and exploited for his political gain. He was novel in that one aspect, no one really had any idea just how widespread this irrational fear was in the GOP base.
Weird how white progs bet a collective boner over the thought of whites becoming a minority group. Cringy virtue-signaling at its best.

What a weird characterization.

The reality is I donít care one way or another what the racial makeup of the country is.

Other peopleís race isnít a problem for me, but it clearly is for many on the right.
