Black people are the most politically astute voting class in the U.S. today and voting as a block for Democrats is just proof of that.  Unlike Whites who are financially similarly situated, you will almost never see Black voters tricked into voting for a party due to asinine and unimportant issues like gay marriage, abortion or feminism. But poor and middle-class Whites fall for those distractions all the time.  While Democrats have not always lived up to their promises of greater economic equality, they are a damn sight better than the Republicans. The Black voting population knows that voting for Republicans is exactly like a chicken voting for KFC and it pisses the Republicans off.  IF only Black voters could be tricked by distractions as easily as Whites, the Republicans would have a lock.

Animatronik: A better word might be "parasitic" because the party has become a parasite feeding on the corpse of America's economic prosperity.


Not really, no. If you feed on a corpse, you're not a parasite, you're a scavenger or predator. Parasitism is when you co-opt an organism's natural function to benefit your own, and harmful parasitism is where this is done in a way that benefits the parasite over the host.

I doubt you care, because the rest of what you had to say is pretty stupid and wrong, but I figure this one deserved special attention.

yeah liberal entitlements like piss poor wages and benefits declining for the past 35 years. and letting the big guys skate by on less taxes than the rest. how much of a working man's check is rendered unto Caesar?  not just income tax but sales tax,property tax,state tax and payroll tax. and we're supposed to bow down to the "job creators" and give them whatever they want because they'll just leave and take their money with them. that's bullshiat. they need workers, they need our markets to sell their goods and services. Americans have been sold to highest bidders. And told a lie so much they believe it. If those sons of biatches were to leave ,someone else would take their place. demand drives an economy. not capital investments. the money will come. the demand is here. the infrastructure to manufacture what we need is here. the educated workforce is here. they're not going anywhere. it's all a huge scam and people fall for it. sure inflation would occur but so would wages and jobs would be plentiful.  but we need to elect people not afraid of changing trade agreements. stop this global race to the bottom. the concept of globalization was that it would raise all boats. not lower everyone to neo slave wages. the govt cannot continue to subsidize companies who won't pay a living wage.

Oh... you want a level playing field?

Cool.

First step is to stop having each school district get its funding from the local property tax base, which leads to schools in rich neighbourhoods having 30 times the money per child that poor neighbourhoods.

It's hard to claim an "even playing field"  when kids from rich districts get field trips across the country for their 6th grade outings, while poor kids have to share 10-year-old textbooks because there aren't enough to go around.

So yeah... I can just imagine the anguished screams from Republican land if there was ever even a suggestion to actually level the playing field.

Animatronik: UNC_Samurai:

The Dominionists and the Mega-Churchers have also poisoned the well on poverty.  The Prosperity Gospel says God wants you to be rich and wealth is a sign you're doing something right.  The flip side of that is, poverty is viewed as a symptom of moral failings, not a cause.  Poor people are poor because they're terrible people, and justifies the "they're moochers" mindset.



But allow me to retort...

The converse seems to be the notion that poor people are entitled to permanent assistance, which only encourages them to continue in that state.

It may SEEM that way to you but there is no such notion. Neither party is promoting permanent assistance (with the exception, perhaps, for the permanently disabled). In fact, BOTH "sides" have mandated things like "welfare to work" and limited the time to collect unemployment. What is currently encouraging - even mandating - a state of permanent assistance are profitable corporations (see fast food industries) who underpay employees who are directed to assistance programs AS A MATTER OF COURSE.

  When you're talking about absolute necessities like food, water, heat, and sanitation, that makes sense if you can do it within the available means..


   As has been said for the past four decades? We have the means - if we chose to prioritize, The steps would include better education and housing (read "less corruption and theft of funding) as well as a realistic examination of our bloated defense costs. Rather than do this, we opted to create the DHS - which costs us more than it would take to provide food water and heat to entire cities.
  The Democratic Party has reached the point though where that's not good enough.  Now they want to give everybody free cell phones, free health care, and free money.  They want to give necessities to people who don't really need them also, who could afford to pay for them.

The Democratic Party did not start the phone program - do your homework. Health care is not "free" - it is paid for by the american people. I am okay with this because I have been to Haiti and would rather not have a system breakdown from diseases that cost more to treat than prevent. As for money, see above. As for your assertion people can pay for these things themselves? see above also.

That's because the Democrats aren't really about fulfilling basic necessities.  What they're about is buying as many votes as possible, and it doesn't matter to them if it degrades a man's self respect and capability to support himself and degrades the family structure by encouraging single motherhood.  None of that matters the slightest to Democrats if they can get your vote.

Contrary to your assumption, people who are just having their basic necessities met (by whatever party that you seem to think unilaterally throws money into the air without a vote to pass a law or program or spending) generally DONT vote. This is part of the reasoning behind mandating photo ID and why so many are concerned about it. It costs money. And subsistance living doesn't include buying ID.

If you want to make the argument that welfare programs (again, voted on by BOTH parties) encouraged single parenthood then let me also mention that the war on drugs - and the unbalanced percentage of black males incarcerated - also rather helped this particular problem. Don't pretend as if this was a Democratic plan.

Racist?  In effect yes because it disproportionately affects blacks.  A better word might be "parasitic" because the party has become a parasite feeding on the corpse of America's economic prosperity.

  Who is feeding off the corpse of America are the wallstreet bankers who game the system raking off enough profits to cover the college tuition of entire schools full of children and corporations like walmart who rely on taxpayers to subsidize not only their losses but the very workers you deride as being parasitic.

   What is worse? Uncontrolled greed masked as "job makers" or sub-standard living conditions labeled "parasitic"?

None that I know of.

You do realize the reason why affirmative action programs exist in the first place?

The whole "make systemic racism illegal so there *can* be a level playing field" thing?

"Soft racism of low expectations" is a RW canard that's been around for a while now.

A slight improvement over the "Democrat plantation" rhetoric marginally in that it doesn't continue to view black folks are some kind of pseudo slaves but it's still an outward projection of their own low view of black folks and as such still a pretty dumb argument to make particularly if the point of the rhetoric is to try to make political inroads.

GOP outreach has a long ways to go before people can start to take it seriously.

scottnance: This is the true cost of slavery.  For over a century the US sought out not just slaves, but particular types of slaves to work the plantations.  They needed strong slaves, not smart ones, or ambitious ones.  The slave had to be just smart enough to do the work but not so smart they'd realize they got dealt a really shiatty hand in life and then revolt.  This played out as a practical matter when smarter Africans began dominating and then selling their dumber brethren to white people.

To add insult to injury, we bred and conditioned the slaves to be non-people.  Their existence was an extension of their master.  Without a master, a slave had no purpose, no life, no reason to exist.  A slave was not his own person.

So we had a war about it, and when we were all finished half of the country let former slaves go about their business and the other half kept them repressed with shadowy laws that let them know they were still under someone's boot.  That persisted for a century, and in the 1960's the government stepped in and said "hey, you got a bad lot in life, come with me and I'll make sure you're taken care of."

What no one realized is that the kind-hearted government had just replaced a hard boot with a soft one.  No one taught the descendants of the former slaves that they didn't have to be an extension of a master.  Instead, they just created a new one:  the government.  It was win-win for a while, the slave mentality had a new master to swear fealty to and politicians had votes wrapped up for eternity.  But in the long run there's still that slave mentality, coursing just beneath the surface.  Even worse, that mentality is being hardened under the illusion of making men "more free."

abb3w: In the south, there likely still are areas where "Dixiecrat" white democrats are prevalent, and more racist than the local GOP; and there may be some subtle forms of racism that are more common among Democrats than Republicans.

However, in the country as a whole, there's a lot more tendency to unsubtle racism among Republicans than among Democrats.



Why do people do this???

There aren't many areas of the south where democrats are prevalent, period... Even in those that exist, there would be little evidence or criteria by which to measure, much less assume, that they are more racist than the local GOP.

It's an entirely baseless and completely counterintuitive proposition... some mythical "Land That Time Forgot," somewhere in the middle of south Georgia, in which all the Democrats are holdovers from the 1950's and 60's, and all the Republicans are holdovers from the 1850's and 60's.

It's complete false equivalence nonsense on its very face, and yet it's offered up like some kind of olive branch token of goodwill gesture in a willingness to meet in the middle. "We'll plead guilty to racism on our side, if you'll acknowledge guilt of racism on your side."

How many times must people go down that road before recognizing that conservatives don't give two shiats about your goodwill gestures or your olive branches?

You cede ground, and they just move further away while shouting "see! Even THEY admit that they're the real racists! Even THEY acknowledge that the Dixie democrats are more racist than southern republicans!"

There is no good reason to hypothetically pretend that democrats might be more racist than republicans in some places or in some ways. It's obviously untrue and they don't appreciate the willingness to meet in some "nobody's perfect" middle ground.

This is just my opinion but I think what really "lost" the "shut down" argument in the court of public opinion for the political right was this guy:
thenewcivilrightsmovement.com
Without saying anything about what this guy's intentions were, no matter how innocent and "heritage not hate"/states' rightsy he meant it to be; the symbolism it gave was not good at all. It reflected bad on him and all associated with it. Even the national veterans' group that organized the nationwide demonstrations denounced it, saying it was usurped by political activists for their own agendas.

It really doesn't matter how non-racist the political right are in reality, and it might be true that the reason they didn't see the racism in it was due to them being so "non-racist". Unfortunately the image it portrays due to American history and what it is associated with to less educated non-conservative Americans who are still subconsciously "racist"; you would expect a political movement so centered around "symbolism" to be more aware of such matters.

This type of "symbolism" plays right into the "propaganda" of those who claim racist motivations behind "conservative" (especially Tea Party) politics.  Just maybe the political right might want to be a little more sensitive to these matters than "in your face" about it. You know the same things they ask from the minorities they "outreach" to in meeting them half way.

This is probably true. And it in no way reflects well on the Tea Party, the GOP, or "many Americans." It most certainly does zilch to bolster the legitimacy, or in fact the non-potato status, of "Joe" the "Plumber." And, frankly, it reflects poorly on you for not realizing that.

This is another problem with GOP/"Conservative" minority outreach.  Reasoning that the Republican party is the best political party for blacks to support because Democrats lynched people 60+ years ago while promoting policies today which disenfranchises them, eliminates education opportunities, reduces access to healthcare, and create conditions where the poorest of the poor are denied food; is not the best way to endear yourself to the African American community.  It ignores a LOT of history since then, which makes "Conservatives" come across as condescending.  It also insinuates that the African American community are "lazy" as a whole and the only thing that is "keeping them down" is they have it too good because of welfare; which makes "Conservatives" come across as arrogant, hateful, and as jerks who are clueless to the plight of the African American community.

Yeah, I think y'all better stick with the voter suppression - your idea of "outreach" is NOT going to fly.


I think that Republican "outreach" is intended primarily to soothe people in their own camp.  Republicans, like Democrats, hold various shades of opinions on race (or gender or sexual orientation).  There are some who would like to literaly hunt "blacks and liberals."  There are some who believe that poverty and crime among American blacks is due purely to Johnson's policies, the "Democrat plantation."  There are some who would like to prevent all brown people from voting.

There are also many who do not hold these views, even if they're still convinced about the whole "Obama gives free stuff to brown people so they vote for him" thing, or a somewhat milder form of this ("we have a spending problem!" that ignores corporate giveaways, social security and "defense" spending, for example).

I doubt that many of the people crafting Republican "outreach" believe it will convince many people who aren't already in the GOP camp.  In fact, I doubt that many of the people crafting those policies want people outside the camp to join.

TheJoe03: Though this goes beyond just black and white of course, but that is the racial conversation STILL in this country, which to me is kind of silly. Latinos, Asians, and others are a factor that the society at large seems to ignore racially.


Because the black demographic was the only one that was ever intentionally institutionally oppressed.  The various south/central american immigrants and Asian immigrants are just going through exactly the same shiat that every immigrant to the US, ever, has gone through... basically coming here because they're poor, spending a generation or two working up from poverty and semi-self-segregating, then gradually integrating into the main-stream of the culture.

"Black" immigrant families frequently come from lines that didn't come here willingly in the first place, were actually a  legally separate social class for a century or so, and then maintained a strong total segregation for another century.  It's a fundamentally different situation... we know the issue of 'latino' and Asian immigrants will work itself out because it's worked out the last 500 times it happened, but the US has only had a population shift from second-class to full citizenship once in its history so we're understandably more concerned about how that's working out.

//And extra concerned because it initially  didn't work out, ten or twenty waves of immigrants joined into the main-stream culture between reconstruction and the actual reintegration of black populations.  We've only been doing it right for about four decades, so uncertainty makes sense.

How about acknowledgement of things which disproportionately affect people of different races?

I think he problem is that one side truly believes that there is a "level playing field", the other acknowledges the fact that there are differences and actually works to make it level.


I remember a study where they had a black guy and a white guy apply for the same job (or trying to rent an apartment, I forgot which). Their work experience and education were nearly identical, except the white applicant had a farking felony conviction, while the black applicant had a clean record. The white guy STILL got a better response than the black applicant.

That's the "level playing field."

It really doesn't matter what descriptor you use, you'll always come off as the person you are claiming you aren't, because people's ears perk up the minute they hear it.  It's a dog whistle.

If someone says "I'm not gay, but those are nice shoes" - everyone is going to think that guy is gay.  However, it only works for pejorative connotations.  You cannot say "I'm not a mechanic, but that noise reducer thingy is making a clangy bang" and expect someone to think you're a mechanic.  It just doesn't work that way.

Just like when a girl says "It's not you, it's me..." means that it IS you.

Everyone is totally buying it, and there's really no better way to convince black people that you're not racist than to constantly point out how dumb you think they are and remind them that even in the year 2013, you have an incredibly difficult time NOT associating them with slave imagery.

Next, you guys should totally start going out in blackface and talk "skreet" to them to show them how "down" you are with the "brothers." Slip them some skin in one of those elaborate "bro" shakes that ends in a snap or an explosion. If you still need to bolster your cred, be sure to point out that a number of your best friends (or, "ni**as") are black.
