At a fire, firemen have a big presence with their trucks, ladders, and flashing lights. People are certainly aware of the fire. But the firemen did not start it. They are responding to it. The race divide was started and is kept alive by conservatives. Liberals merely respond to it.
Conservatives instituted the Jim Crow / segregation systems, conservatives populated and continue to populate the KKK and other white supremacist groups, and the ridiculous rub is that it appears over half of "conservatives" on this board think liberals did those things because they were done by Democrats. There are actually people out there who don't know the histories of the Democratic and Republican Parties. And in any event to think liberals would write restrictive race laws like that, keeping blacks from voting, education, jobs; lynching them and all the rest would be like saying Republicans supported Jimmy Carter for president and think he was one of America's greatest. Such mendacity is understandable-- no one wants to admit that his political forebears were racists or that leaders of his party are keeping at it, trying as they are to keep blacks and Hispanics from voting. Doesn't justify it, though.
What a bunch of bullshit relative to the topic.
Tjhe gist of my comments to this point had to do with the liberal bullshit that republicans/cons don't like obama because he is black. Using your sides argument the logic says that cons would support Obama policy if he was white. I call bullshit.
Tell us sally why then were cons opposed to clinton, gore, kerry and hiliry poliies? If they supported those policies and suddenly stopped their support with Obama your side would have a fucking argument.
The problem is you can not promote his policies over the last 5 years because they suck. If they were successful you would not be playing the race card to blame for his failures. People like you are why we will never move beyond the race issue. You fight to keep it allive and well thru disingenous rhetoric.
And the country suffers because of your bullshit. I hope you are proud.
