If you truly believe that, then you are part of the problem of uneducated bomb throwers that this country is severely infected with.

Blame GOP primary voters. Sorry, you can't pin this on the left. GOP primaries are not won by left wingers. Clinton was marred with scandal and he still had high approval amongst Democrats.

You and I have different opinions of the word hate.

How many rallies did they have in the 80's, 90's or even early to mid 200's? How many candidates did they have on the ballots?

Non-white minorities voted overwhelming for Obama in 2012. Why on earth do you think Republicans won't support voter ID laws? Because they don't want non-whites voting against them. Do you seriously believe Republicans aren't racist? Because if you think they aren't than you are living a fantasy world. They did the same thing during Jim Crow south. Technically blacks could vote in the south but they forced them to take tests before voting and if they didn't pass they would won't be allowed to vote.

It's something people don't want to talk about or recognize but our society is in no way a "tolerant" society.
I find it funny that whenever someone on the right talks about the poor leftist racists say they are talking about blacks.

Then they come out and say there are more white poor then blacks.

Pleae explain how Voter ID is racist when there a re a lot more poor whites then there are poor blacks.

"There is a still a significant part of the US population that is still very bigoted towards someone because of their race". I think this applies to more blacks then whites.
