Democrats support removing the Confederate battle flag from public properties, recognizing that it is a symbol of our nation's racist past that has no place in our present or our future


I just can't let this slide.

No, that did not happen in the way you envision. Most of the south continued to vote Democrat until they died. It was the younger generation that shifted to the Republicans. Much like anything, they rebelled against their elders as the younger generation rebelled against their Reagen era parents.

Pendulum swings ... back and forth ... with the generations. One day the younger generations will swing back conservative libertarian again because it will be the only way to rebel.


We are already on our way there my friend.

You do know that the Dixiecrats broke away from the Dems in the late 1940's because of their opposition to civil rights. When that movement failed, the Republicans swooped in with the Southern Strategy. That is why most of the southern states are red.

Then on top of that you add the work of people like Rev. James Fifield and you see the beginnings of what became the modern Right Wing, pro-business Christian party.

Rebel?

Sure....

Racism, bigotry?

Don't the DNC emails show that the dems have been bigoted towards jews, Mexicans?

Or do you just give them a pass?


Gays too.


Forgot about that... So the democrats are racist, homophobic bigots... Well lookie there, that's what they're always calling Republicans.

I'm starting to think that Sanders was in it from the start, and it was his job to bring the millennials and far-leftists into the Democratic fold.


But they have turned them off. Bernie becoming a Democrat, bringing in the progressives, and then letting the DNC screw them with party-insider tactics is a lousy plan to bring progressives into the Democratic fold.

Or maybe their plan misfired.


I think it misfired... I think the bigger plan involved the millennials getting on board with Bernie and then Bernie getting screwed by the democrats, and then the millennials bending over like democrats have always done, and giving in...

Just listened to Elizabeth Warren's speech again.. near the end (i must have missed it last time I watched because she is so boring) she actually said that Hillary will root out the money and corruption from politics. She actually said it - with a straight face. Hilarious.




She's had lots of practice.

But it helps explain why she's not HIllary's running mate.


She's a walking contradiction. You'd have to have a chemical imbalance to know everyone knows you're a liar and then get up there and act like your words mean something.

Some people are racist on both the right and the left, but not all are racist.
Racism exists for certain - just look at the different living conditions and opportunity afforded to people.
It's wrong to make it about party affiliation. though.

With the current administration I don't know if it's racism or just apathy, but they have been terrible for the minority communities.
When America starts offering true equal opportunity, and that means proportionally HIGHER investment in inner cities and minority communities for a sustained period of time, you'll know at least that racism is on the wane. Right now you have lots of nice words from the DNC about minorities, but no action. Keep buying that product and you'll get the same result.

Funny, because George Wallace's own daughter compared Trump to her Dad.

Except she said at least her Dad knew what the hell he was doing in office.



I'm not arguing the point. The Dem was called out for saying they never had anyone like Trump......they did..............Wallace. Thanks for making my point.

Wouldn't states/territories imply 50 states and some or all territories.


Territories of the United States are sub-national administrative divisions directly overseen by the United States federal government (unlike U.S. states, which share sovereignty with the federal government).

The five major territories are self-governing with locally elected governors and territorial legislatures. Each also elects a non-voting member (or resident commissioner) to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Currently, there are sixteen territories of the United States, five of which are permanently inhabited: Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa
