No point in responding with well thought post.

This OP is lacking in originality for an ATS thread.

Decent chance this is one of those paid Hillary troll bots. I believe there was a thread on that topic this past week.

edit-maybe not, looks like a longtime poster. sad that is was such a bad OP. perhaps it was just starbait.



Did I say anything about Hillary?

I don't like Hillary and would only vote for her on the basis of lessor of two evils.

everyone who knows me on this forum and have seen my op's condemning Hillary and Obama on various issues knows better that such an accusation is ridiculous.

The problem is conservatism( and the GOP) is so littered with racists that they refuse to help the people at the bottom (in America the minorities of color mostly) so they maintain conservatism to keep the minorities from being assisted.


You raise another important issue, with your little post here, which I think doesn't get enough attention:

The DNC has a huge problem with exploiting the plight of poor minorities to score political points -- even though their plight is very much a result of failed social welfare policies that many democrats support.

Then when democrats get elected via this exploitation and emotional manipulation -- they do nothing to help end the cycle of poverty that the minorities you're referring to have been locked into.

And then there's more racebaiting, fingerpointing, and exploitation...but never any actual "help."

This exploitation is really just a shameful form of racism, IMO.




There may be some truth to that but actually Bill Clinton “reformed” the welfare system where it has depleted the number of people on welfare in America. Some say that has hurt a lot of poor people.


And with the GOP in power in the congress food stamps have been cut considerably


Also the intention of these programs was in good faith so I don’t see that originally being racist in any way.


If the programs have become counter productive one has to have proof of that. Just because there is still poverty isn't proof, imo.


I dropped out of school and went back in my early twenties through a government program and through that got a HS diploma and went on to college so that helped me. So I know some of these programs work.




Are you a minority of color?

I’m mixed race.

Again I’m not saying Trump is a racist or his voters are( some of them are).

What I am saying is that Trump is using dog whistles to attract a certain voter group to his cause.

And indeed the larger point is that within certain conservative circles they are conservatives largely because it means denying minorities’ government money through programs.

Trump though isn’t about cutting these programs (good for him) so why do these racists follow him?

Why are KKK types following Trump?

One thing a guy like Trump proves is that if it weren’t for racism in America much of what liberals want would have been done. As it is in European countries…. Such as real universal health care and real helping the poor out of poverty.

The problem is conservatism( and the GOP) is so littered with racists that they refuse to help the people at the bottom (in America the minorities of color mostly) so they maintain conservatism to keep the minorities from being assisted.


This is proven by Trump in that he’s actually a liberal moderate with some conservative sounding tough guy anti-minority rhetoric to placate the racists amongst the conservatives.

That’s why the KKK, various other overt racists and other bigots like Alex Jones and Jess Rense are for Trump.


And that is exactly why various racists are FOR Obama. Do people need a recent history lesson on that type of racism too? Racists against whites.

So yes, the country AS A WHOLE is racist. Welcome to reality!

That’s not what I’m saying.

Can you thing nuance? This is not really that deep.

I’m saying some racists don’t want government programs going to minorities

People like you that constantly call everything racism are the real problem. You only see color and race and are the reason we can't get past racial issues that long ago should have been solved. Try looking in the mirror. Why do you see race in everything? Human is the only race that matters.

With Trump it's always: China, Mexico, Japan. It seems ONLY non white groups of people are the subject of Trump's rhetoric...

That's NOT saying Trump doesn't get on white individuals

Its typical racist xenophobia racists like to hear


That's my point of this OP

No its people like you who accuse people--who call out racism of being racists--who actually are the ones advancing racism

I don’t make a lot of racial oriented OP’s

So your accusation is meritless and an example of your own automatic thinking capacity

WHat is the real issue is people still self dividing along "race lines". Science has proved we are not seperate races. we are of one race,but with many ethnicities. Instead of droning on about racism be the change you want to see and educate.

Then vote for someone else!

I think, at this point, most people are well aware of the character of those running for president.

Honestly, I dont pay too much attention to what anyone running has to say. I just watch for who the media bashes 24-7 and I root for that person.

Very true but also people who have been dividing like Trump has, imo.

He may not even realize what he's doing but I doubt it.

And when Trump gets called out he always says: Its political correctness.




Some people are squeamish about race. And anyone who talks about it regarding what they think are a racist action is accused of being this or that; but all their doing is expressing an opinion.

Just because one accuses some of racism doesn’t mean their racist

Not sure how you can say only Republicans are racist. You don't think it goes both ways?

BTW

People are too squeamish about race.

Just because someone calls x, y or z a racist doesn’t mean THE ACCUSER IS A racist.

If you don’t like the accusation debate it on its merits and don’t give me all this crap about

“PEOPLE WHO ACCUSE OTHERS OF RACISM ARE PROMOTING RACISM”

That’s a bunch of BS.

That’s like saying to a rape victim


If you report this rape your promoting rape

As long as you are comparing apples to apples in your anecdotal example.

I think the larger point is that the middle class is shrinking and poverty is growing, despite your personal experience. The social welfare system we have in place is failing -- that much is certain.

So, let's see some good ideas on how to fix that system and less racebaiting and exploitation for political expedience.

As it stands, it sure seems like those in charge of shaping our social welfare policies are intentionally creating generations of families trapped in a cycle of dependence on government assistance and then exploiting that dependence to get their votes.

I don't worry about race I just treat people with respect. You are the one who is fixated on it enough to create this OP. If people like you and the Government were to quit trying to keep people divided race wouldn't be an issue.

1. Where has Trump shown himself to be racist?

2. Wasn't the KKK supporting Hillary?


The KKK was founded, built and perpetuated by Democrats.

On the other hand, if people falsely accuse someone of rape in a public forum, there are likely very serious legal consequences.

Racism? That accusation is falsely thrown out at whim with absolutely no regard for consequences.

But there are consequences. I pretty much tune out whenever someone is accusing someone else of racism, anymore. There's no room for honesty in the 'conversation.'
