The thing is that this is ALWAYS going on. This side spews(to those of us that have to sit quietly and tolerate) the same stuff. Then the other side. NO ONE is moving anyone. Let calmer heads prevail and we might come up with something pertainant.

They are not 'AFRICANS'.

They are just AMERICANS.

Hypenated American names are utter nonsense.

And you'd have to change SO much:



Somehow, "She was African-American as the night....." Doesn't quite flow. You're right. If you are born in America you're American. If you've moved from an African country and got your citizenship.... THEN you're an African American. Labels. Too damn many.

I, for one, would love to know how the republican party is going to win the office without the minority, women or gay vote?


Are you assuming zero minorities, women and/or gays are going to vote Republican?

Trying to get it. I'm from Nova Scotia. Google it. Rights for Blacks and women "may" not #1 but close. Just not getting it. We gauge people differently. "Asshole" or "OK". And both come in all colours.

Then you must be happy that Pence is gone. With luck we can get someone that puts the state first and not his religion this time around.

Well the first amendment and the RFRA signed under CLinton and created by Schummer says people have that RIGHT.

Doh!

RFRA doesn't apply to the states only the federal government. But you think its alright for a elected official to put their religion ahead of the state?

The first amendment supersedes state, and federal LAWS.

The RFRA interestingly enough doubled down on the FIRST amendment,



Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.


www.law.cornell.edu...

People have that RIGHT.

They don't have to like it.

But they better deal with it.


The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, Pub. L. No. 103-141, 107 Stat. 1488 (November 16, 1993), codified at 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb through 42 U.S.C. § 2000bb-4 (also known as RFRA), is a 1993 United States federal law that "ensures that interests in religious freedom are protected."


en.wikipedia.org...

Funny part there is ?

A right winger didn't create it or sign it into LAW.



The bill was introduced by Congressman Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on March 11, 1993. A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Ted Kennedy (D-MA) the same day. A unanimous U.S. House and a nearly unanimous U.S. Senate—three senators voted against passage[2]—passed the bill, and President Bill Clinton signed it into law.


Want to continue this conversation?

Do better.

There are a lot of gay people that are not members of LGBT. LGBT is just a group that got together and tried to say they speak for all gays. They don't. How do I know? I'm one of them. People are going to be surprised at the numbers of gays that vote Trump, I think.

Yeah they did.

Silicon Valley's Peter Thiel receives standing ovation at GOP convention

Either someone is willfully lying or suffering from the mandela effect.


Token gay?

Seriously?


Do not presume to speak for the gay community. Even LGBT doesn't really speak for the average gay person. Just as BLM doesn't speak for every black person or one lone wolf extremist doesn't speak for all muslims. Am I a token lesbian? Maybe you think I am but I'm thinking you will be surprised on election day.
