Weird. In my rich Republican suburb any black man is suspicious and most will get stopped. The tiny tiny number of black people are ridiculed as soon as their backs are turned. The n word gets used behind closed doors and everyone giggles. The only black employees I've ever seen in my town are female nannies.

Studies have shown just having a white name gets you hired for jobs over the same person with a white name.

"It indicates that a white name yields as many more callbacks as an additional eight years of experience."

Blacks are more likely to be arrested them whites.

"Blacks are far more likely to be arrested for selling or possessing drugs than whites, even though whites use drugs at the same rate. And whites are actually more likely to sell drugs"

Racism is probably dead though. Sorry for attempting to bring reality into things.

Propaganda is a hell of a drug.

So, do you know for a fact that suburb is Republican or are you just guessing because I've seen that behavior from rich, white liberals, too.

I'll implement it by waiting and fighting to get money out of politics. Without the ability to flood the nation in propaganda, demographics ensure victory. My only focus politically now is getting money out of politics.


You do realize the democrats did the exact same stuff when bush was in office. Obama also was backed up with corporate money too remember.

Oh brother....seriously? Ok, so you have established you live in a rich, white neighborhood at this point. I am guessing you are either young and black, or just young. Why is it that you hate the "hood" you are in so much? Are you one of the privileged that is upset because of your privilege?

Racism is only still alive BECAUSE of the Dems. Sorry, but racism died out in my very southern state a long time ago, at least in the areas that are educated. Sure there are some people here and there and small towns that still think along the race lines, but that is SO small minded and people who use this card to act like it is why they "can't get theirs" are typically just wanting a handout or a quick rise to a high dollar position.

One thing I can say that across the board, black and white, is kids these days don't seem to want to work for it.....no matter the race. If you don't work for it, you won't get it....fairly simple logic. I don't do handouts, they are like feeding pigeons in a park....eventually even the squirrels want in.....

I'm aware. I never said take away republican money only. When the money is taken out of politics the will of the people can actually shine through. My side will win in that situation. Just look what money in politics does.

"As recently as May, support for medical marijuana was strong in Florida, reaching almost 90 percent in a Quinnipiac poll. But that support steadily declined as the months wore on, reaching a low of 48 percent in October."

"The measure faced a well-financed opposition campaign primarily funded by billionaire casino mogul and GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson. Adelson put $5 million toward the opposition to Amendment 2, accounting for roughly 85 percent of the total funding of the campaign to defeat the measure, according to The Washington Post."

Will of the people my ass. More like will of the old rich lying white guys. The guy who killed amendment 2 in Florida isn't even from Florida.

I suggest you read the new book "Just Mercy" if you think racism is dead in the south. It'll blow your mind I promise.

Omfg. Seriously. Thanks for proving my point.

"Oh brother....seriously? Ok, so you have established you live in a rich, white neighborhood at this point. I am guessing you are either young and black, or just young. Why is it that you hate the "hood" you are in so much? Are you one of the privileged that is upset because of your privilege? "

Do you think I'm black or white? Come on just guess. I'm barely younger than you so that's meaningless.

As for handouts I've never used any government benefit and have paid taxes my whole life. I'm almost out of debt. I was given a predatory credit card in high school and it took me over a decade to get out of debt. I did it with only the help of my family and my own hard work.

This is in contrast with one of my best friends, a staunch Republican who was on unemployment for 2 straight years (he paid into it so its justified, unlike those lazy spics, his words not mine) until his parent's best friend gave him a job. The same guy have jobs to my friends sister, her husband, and three other white kids I know.

So please keep going with the personal attacks. I'm not afraid to share details if my life. I won't hide behind a mask of lies and anonymity like you Republicans love to.

Please don't slink off. I'm absolutely loving this.

What data is there on 3rd party votes?

I think that should be considered here as well.

Nice try on trying to pigeonhole us into a red vs blue argument though OP.

We've been as red as it gets for our entire history. We wouldn't let Jews live here until the late 70s we were so Republican (read : racist). One of my best friends was the daughter of that first Jewish family.

We've never voted Democrat even once for any major election. In the last presidential election we voted for Romney by an absolute landslide. I just looked through our election history. Never has a Democrat won an election here except for minor local positions. My entire family just showed up and checked off the R's. They didn't even know the candidates.

So yes I'm sure my town is Republican.

I don't really care what you are. You stated "In my rich white neighborhood" so that would draw a natural conclusion that you are either young and black or young and just against what the rich whitey seems to stand for in your opinion.

And seriously? Predatory credit card in high school? I feel so bad for you, but they don't just give them to you. You have to sign up for it and accept the terms. This is the EXACT same mentality that I am talking about......never your fault, please someone bail me out. If your parents were smart they would have said bail yourself out, however, as they are your parents, you likely had to have their consent to get the card as well which made them responsible since you couldn't pay it. So it was a predatory card huh? Well, you ARE the one that charged things on it right? You KNEW you couldn't pay for those things right? You KNEW that you weren't making the payments right? And somehow it is the credit card company's fault?

RIDICULOUS....and yes, I too can go on all day about the inadequacies of the current generation of youth and "Young adults". They live in a fantasy world where everything is handed to them and get upset when they don't have what little Johnny has....well, little Johnny's dad may have more than your dad and gave something better to little Johnny....so you hate him for it?

Right then.

Carry on with your non-progressive, propagated, narrow minded argument.

Man, we put a man on the moon and a Progressive is allowed to reside in an area that is redder than red.

And here I thought racism, evil Conservatives and rich white people would keep you out of such an area.

Imagine that though, YOUR father, WORKED hard to bring you out of a bad area and relocated you to a good area.


SO, here is the question. What Govt agency and program did you guys use to get out of the bad area?
