Get your goofy right wing conspiracy theories right. That was his real name before the CIA changed it.

I just hope you were this outraged when Trump, Arpaio and other countless Right wing hacks were questioning Obama's legitimacy because of his weird, foreign sounding last name and skin color.


Yea but everybody went to the swearing in. Didn't want to be called racist by the hacks. Not this guy though! He wouldn't be happy unless a black were forever in the white house and don't mind who knows hes a racist bigot.


Huh?

Let's not twist this into something it's not. After all Lewis was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton, who is white? So how does that make him a racist?

And the reason Rep. Lewis is not attending Trump's inauguration is not because of Trump's skin color, but because Rep. Lewis has been briefed on the issue of Russian interference in our elections and believes that makes Trump illegitimate.

A far cry from the point this thread is trying to make.

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) recent statements about TRUMP not be our legitimate president is a racist statement from a black man....


Race doesn't entitle people to a legitimate opinion of other people...actions do.
He's using the fake news garb that Russia elected Trump and not frustrated voters...

Wow, just wow. What has he accomplished.......?

Maybe you are not rascist but just stupid.

For one thing he does not advocate for violence. Unlike trump (that's a lower case t because he is a Pratt) he has never once insinuated the call to arms or assassination of another politician.

He has fought for civil rights (the optimal word civil) his entire life.

Trump has not.

Calling him a scumbag shows your complete ignorance onto the plight of every American citizen.

I am disgusted by your post.

Oh.... I am white and I don't owe any black person a damn thing......


Not even respect for the suffering at the hands of white people? White privilege is a real thing, proven by hard scientific data. The situation is far more complex and nuanced than many white supremacists seem to think. I find it hard to understand the level of anger that blazes from those who can't understand the suffering of black people and feel that white people have suffered just as much (which we definitely have not - as a race). Whatever happened to love they neighbor and I am my brother's keeper? Those are timeless moral codes that seem to be ignored in the modern day and I can't understand it.

While Trump was busy dodging drafts and getting one million dollar loans from his daddy, John Lewis was fighting for basic human rights and getting beat up.

Yes, he was elected by frustrated voters, but not in the way you think. The data shows that it was national apathy that resulted in his election. He won with only one-fourth of eligible voters. The rest voted for others or didn't vote at all because they didn't like any candidates. While those one-fourth of the nation were mostly angry, they aren't representative of the nation as a whole. The nation as a whole is paralyzed by fear while the international community is wondering what comes next, fearing the end of peaceful relations, national alliances, and world peace by a man who is more concerned about what people think about him than what he actually does for others. Political office should be sought out of a desire to serve humanity, not for personal ego. There are too many politicians who are concerned only for themselves. Trump sadly is not any different, even though many who voted for him think he is. His actions and words since the election prove that he doesn't seem very stable. That scares the hell out of me, as a gay man, as person with disabled family members who need their social security, and a father with cancer who needs a national healthcare system to keep him from losing his home due to unchecked insurance companies and medical facilities robbing people blind. How is Mr. Trump going to change things for the better when most of the nation are scared he's going to destroy us? (perhaps even literally through nuclear war).

Huh what? This guy is to stupid to be taken as anything but a clown for not going to Trumps inauguration. Just an excuse for tools. MLK had Russian connections and influence and even went there. Where is this sour puss crying about that. Or MLKS white hookers? Thats all Hillary is to these boys.

I see you are concerned about the new upcoming changes in our health program. Right now Obamacare is out of control, one reason why your family is suffering right now..... Obamacare.

Lets see what the new and approved medical insurance program that Trump brings to the American people.

Do not forget that Trump whats to make America great again and that includes you and your family.

Trump is not in this for the money....

I will pray for you and your family.

God bless...

Do you know me?

Do you know my half Jamaican kids?

White guilt is a white term used by whites.

Do you support the agenda of racist southern whites in the 1800's?

Do you not understand what systemic racism is?

Have you ever actually studied the atrocities that African Americans have had to endure the last few hundred years?

You should become more familiar with this website and maybe you will grow up and become less naive.

I think you have the two confused. Yes he engages regularly in partisan rhetoric as do members of both sides, but calling him a racist is a bit of slur.

Disagreeing with someone else's politics does not justify that accusation and lord knows we have seen enough race baiting. So now it's coming from both sides?

Oh.

The Russians, of course.

I am sure it has nothing to do with him being bigoted against white republicans.
