I'm being sincere, though. It's not racism on my part, it's that I genuinely think Allen West, Herman Cain and Ben Carson are Republican black men that got recognition and fame because they were black and white guys in the party thought they'd be able to say,"See?! We has a black one, too!!!"

And, honestly, it is pretty atrocious just standing on its own - and context really doesn't help it.

I ask you to imagine the reaction if the politician represented had been a liberal democrat - just imagine what would have had to happen to make that "right"? The cartoonist would probably have had to die, and even then, the newspaper, editor, publisher, just everybody would have had to pay, on top of the cartoonist dying.

I know the source sucks for now, but bear with me. This'll be on major news sources soon.

Liberals generally can't see beyond color. Doesn't surprise me. Everything has to be categorized and compartmentalized, and understood in simple terms.

I am being sincere when I say you are an a-hole, no matter what color you are.

Conservatives are much better on race relations, of course. It's why minorities vote with them in such huge numbers.

yeah no shit

he actually wrote this:

Individual success should never become the standard of measure of success for the collective. It is only through group success that the African-American community will truly become politically and economically empowered.


but back to the point. our poor people are fat. how many people have no access to food in America unless they choose that lifestyle (homeless people)?

I am, again, being sincere when I say that if I had a bag of fricks, you couldn't have one. Politics is a game involving everything from the profound to the absurd. I'm alleging that conservatives needed to counter the view of them that sprang from the Southern Strategy by getting black candidates wherever they could find them. The same can be said for women in the last few years. Nearly all of them have flopped.

Liberals really can only understand minorities that buy into their message of division. Any minority that buys into the GOP generic message has to be token, right?

The GOP message isn't a message meant to pander to any particular racial group, it's meant to pander to people who share specific values. It shocks liberals that some minorities share those values.

cain didn't even win the GOP nomination, and Ben Carson is a doctor (and black icon, mind you)

Alan West was a congressman from florida, and didn't he lose his seat?

what exactly are you talking about?

George Bush had a more diverse cabinet than Obama does, i believe. think about that

I would say that conservatives look at race less than progressives.

If 97% of white people vote for something and 3% vote against, I'll assume that whatever was on the ballot would've hurt most white people. I do the same with other groups. I think they're all full of rational humans that think things through.

It's what you guys espouse, too. We look at demographics to decide campaign strategy.
