Nice try, but that is also false, Majority of all the Dixiecrats remained Democrat, you can name a couple that became Republican, but the vast majority did not. So yet another one of your beliefs based out of your made up theories.

The Democratic party is a big tent party and that is why we are poised for greater success going into the future than Republicans. A party like the GOP that gambles its entire fate with one race in America is bound to fail. The Democratic party has all racial groups represented in large numbers. The Democratic party represents America. The Republican party represents Utah.

You might as well forget about the individual racists. There are racists on both sides. In fact, there are racists in every group in the world. This would include the democrats who seem to find it so intriguing that Obama is articulate and doesn't speak with a negro dialect.

But what you're doing is following a political ideology just because you presume them to be on the side of black people. Not only are you incorrect in my opinion, but you are no less racist than a white guy who is Republican because they are the "white majority party."

Because the democratic party is smart; they have everyone convinced that they care about you so much. The democratic party thrives on segregation and racial division.

You haven't really said anything here though except that you're smart and Utah is stupid, so make an actual point and then we can discuss it.

Oh yeah, maybe that would explain why all the southern states where the "Dixiecrats" live have consistently voted Republican since the civil rights movement. Do you think I was born yesterday?

Yeah, I'm sure all the racists completely switched their political ideologies immediately after the civil rights movement.

I actually agree with you on both points but to a degree. However I would add that I am not just following a political ideology because the Democrats support black people. I staunchly believe in the Democratic platform because I believe they have the right vision for America. I also like the fact that the Democratic party itself represents the diversity of America.

I guess we have found common ground to some extent. Good night and good luck!

I am glad you modified your post from your subject line, because White people -- at least THIS white person, do not really ever think about African Americans wanting reparations. I cannot fathom what white racists think, at all. I believe they are so mired in hatreds that they don't spend any time really thinking about anything. If they did, they would know how stupid it is to hate anything.

Personally, I do feel a tremendous amount of guilt at America's racism and ignorance about the world, in general. For all our blessings, we are an uncommonly small-minded people, I am sorry to observe. With all the blessings we have flowing to us, I think we would be a bit more open handed with our gifts.
