As VP Joe Biden made a speech in Danville Virginia he said:

‘They’re going to put y’all back in chains’

Why does the democratic leadership constantly play the race card when addressing a crowd of largely non-euro/American people?

Why do they constantly play the race card, and then claim that the republicans are the racists?

There's video attached and it looks like a mixed crowd, but we all know who he was talking to.

It's this constant race baiting that bothers me about dems.

They can only succeed by reinforcing stereotypes against republicans.

Joe's a little late putting "dem" back on the plantation isn't he? Fake Southern accent and all. What a hypocrite. The Dems are least consistent. Like Cordell Hull, FDR's Sec of State is credited with saying about the Dominican distator Trujillo, "He's An S.O.B., But He's Our S.O.B."--

You play the cards you are dealt.

If right-wingers don't want Dems to play the race card, they should stop dealing them the race card.

Two things:
1- In your world, "largely non-Euro/American" and "chains" can mean only one thing.
2- In your world, "Euro/American" (and I'm sure you have your own definitions of whatever THAT entails), with largely "non-Euro" (whatever that is supposed to mean) crowd are technically "non-Euro".

And point fingers the other way.

Lameness at its best.

Biden is such a jerk. He has no idea what 'IS' means either! he can't tell a good black pistol grip from a evil red pistol grip, not does he know what a chain IS.

I thought living under a rock was just a term for people who don't get out much, but I believe he is the last man on earth who actually did live under a rock. He ain't nuthin' but another 'stoner'.

The bad part is there are blacks who would listen to that FOOL, and believe it.
