"Hey Republicans interns! You're too light-skinned! You didn't even have the racist audacity to put all the dark-skinned people near the front!"

Look at the blatant racism of the article:



In the face of the blinding whiteness of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan's selfie with a crop of Capitol Hill interns, a group of Democratic interns stopped shielding their eyes long enough to take their own photos. And well, they pretty much speak for themselves.


That is a fairly accurate, though uses hyperbole.

You're being purposefully obtuse.

The whole point of the picture taken by the democrats was to demonize whiteness and race bait.

I can't believe you don't understand why that would be seen as racist by some.

True.

Even with all my awesome qualifications left would never hire me.

I am the wrong color.

The wrong gender.

The wrong sexual preference

And the wrong political ideology.

Yes people the democrats are the party of 'diversity'.

As a hispanic man I find this retort to the image of Ryan and the republican interns to be racist AND an attempt to race smear a whole group of people for being the wrong skin color(white in this case).

This is some seriously racist #. It is deeply offensive and I'm not surprised no one is calling this out as the bull# it so obviously is.


Nope.


Now who's denying racism exists.

Especially after your "SEA of white" comment.

You're unbelievable.

The point is, race is being used as a means to discredit people. It's antithetical to civil and human rights, no matter what the color.

It's simple math. In general some races have significantly higher college graduation rates then other races. Combined with overall population. It puts the average makeup at something like 15:1 and that's assuming every job has the same amount of attention from all parties.

Ya, 15:1 is not the ratio in the Ryan pic, not even close. Just a silly comparison.

Nope, again it;s just the pictures and the democratic interns gave their response.

Neither is the DNC pic, but you seem to have no quarrels about that.

In today's installment of,

How Not to Sound like a Bigoted ------------

We have the following lesson,

This is a racist statement,


How many of those people got their positions based off their talents ?
Not too many is my guess.


Let me explain, you notice first the poster denigrates the abilities of the "people" (gee I wonder which "people" he means?).
Lets assume that since the conversation is about affirmative action he is referring to the minorities.

Notice how without the tiniest gleam of knowledge about anyone in that photo he naturally assumes that the minorities have no talent & are only there because of his preconceived notions of what affirmative action means.

So to be clear the racist attitude is blindly, ignorantly assuming that the minorities are not there because of ability.
That's Racist.

K~

No one here is stupid enough to believe that it's "just pictures" when it comes to what the democrats have done here as a response.

This is racism and race baiting nothing more and nothing less. Did the Republicans take that picture to show off their whiteness? No. Obviously not. That was never the premise of why that picture was taken.

The dems picture was ENTIRELY centered around race.

Not racism. You can try to turn it backwards and upside down as much as you want. But it;s not.

The response of the dems was to demonize the whiteness of the republican party.

Even alluded to it in the caption of the image and the news stories surrounding it.

It's racist.

EDIT:

You even said it yourself "SEA of white".

You know what this image is about as much as the dems do and you're denying it. Which means you're both a liar and a racist.

Well, using a group of people as a political tool/pawn based on their race or color is nothing short of racism.

Sad.

People used to get hired to their positions based on their ability to do the job.

Now?

It's not about qualifications. it's about the color of your skin.

That, in my opinion, is racist.


so the racism is hiring non-whites because obviously whites are more qualified ?

please elaborate, I'm confused
