As far as the issues of Latinos and Gays, Latinos in part fit in the same realm with African Americans as it involves economic policy (as poverty rates of Latinos declined sharply in the 90's as well) and you also have the immigration issue. With Gays, who are the ones that have been out front in Gay Rights issues, whether it was discrimination in the work place, hate crime legislation, Civil Unions, and now Gay Marriage, graned not all of that is on the Democratic Platform, though most are and others seem to be moving in that direction. Its pretty easy to see who has been up front on these issues and which side is trying to do everything in their power to block it, including Amending the Constitution of all things.
Touche.

I don't acknowledge practicioners of racial double standards. If someone of a paler persuasion had a screenname like yours with their color placed where your color is, you'd be crying racism.

NICE TRY CHAMP


Says the guy with the screenname of a man whose ideology is a laughing stock in the trash bin of history, and who has to type in caps to compensate for inferior substance.

Actually, to say your substance is inferior is to say there actually IS substance in any of your incoherent posts. Unfortunately it is not.

WRONG ....Maybe you should familiarize yourself on FACTS before stating incorrect opinion. Here in the Northeast a FAMILY (which includes FATHERS) can receive Welfare.

So again, list the States that require the FATHER to move out of the home in order for the family to receive welfare.

I think that group of people were in fact considered minorities up until a certain point in the US, because they were considered non-whites. I doubt they are still thought of as nonwhites in today's time though.

LMAO...You are hilarious and definately new to the forum as well as screen names...There is a proudwhite, proud&white, white&proud on these boards and I applaud them for taking pride in who they are and their culture. But again, your 3 for 3 with the subliminal posts today.

No state requires the father to move out or be absent to recieve welfare. The reason some people have the father move out or appear to move out is so that his income don't count against them. If he makes more then the income guidlines, then no they can't recieve it, so if he supposedly moves out, then they qualify, but, if the father don't have income or is low income, it can and many times will increase the amount they get.

Well, my point is that OP in another thread claimed to be from the former Soviet Union, he posts nothing but threads about how whites are superior, he despises liberal whites who, as he sees it, are apologetic about being white or who like diversity, and here he claims to be a minority. That last claim was given as evidence of credibility, as in "I'm not a white person being racist against minorities, I'm one of them, too but I'm a critical one."

EDIT: I missed a few pages of this thread - seems as if Mr Stockton imagines Latvians, or Ukranians, or other such white Europeans, qualify for minority status in America.
