Racism and the 2012 election

Explain how one group can be racist for voting around 60% against a man of a different racial background but another group that votes 90% against a person of a different racial background isn't racist?

Jorge nailed DWS on the lack of diversity represented on the state of the fist democratic debate. in the interview...she immediately threw out the "i got a black ffriend" card as evidence that the party is indeed the only diverse political party in america. the democratic party with BHO was in a put-up or shut-up position. they simply found the most presentabl product and marketed his way into the presidency...not once but twice. kudos to them for achieving that goal. what is blatantly clear is that the democrats have done little to actually remove racism from the 2016 race in that their crowning achievment is based on race without substance. the democrats can only hope that the lowly and ignorant people of color of whom they champion do not catch on to their decepetion...opps...i think that many have...or at least the uncle-toms and educated latinos. until they too are diminished by the democratic propaganda machine.

is that per pound of salmon? i am with you on the eggs, however i use flour and baking powder, salt, pepper and diced sweet onions. they puff up a bit and turn out almost buscuit-like but still moist.

if we ever agree..we can indeed overcome. actually the United States like good pan-fried Salmon Patties needs a common binder, whether it's national defense or an incredible boost in the economy. weneed to have a national purpose. we haven't agreed on that quite yet. so what do you think OWO?

moderation ...is that to say...to love others, one must first learn to love themselves? try as we might, there is simply no way to protect against the onslaught of the dark-side of humanity and its effects upon not only ourselves but also on the one's we dearly love. the dark-side that i refer to are the thoughts or actions one has made so egregious as to revolt one's self. perhaps we all fall victim to a bit of denial when it comes to the events of existence.

Moderation...you are like a puzzle with missing pieces or an archway missing its keystone. i surmise you wished to share a common misconception regarding african-americans and sickle cell anemia. i get it and agree that we are deceived by preconceived and promoted ideas that can be both true and/or false. deception has many faces. i fail to think of but one facet in one's life where deception does not affect. what facet of your life do you hold so dear as to shield and protect it from the "sea of humanity"?

good morning/afternoon to the already awakened people. first cup of coffee...greasing gears and as the warden said in Cool Hand Luke..."i'm a gettin' my mind right"

"Moderation..god afternoon. i complied...i googled it... now what? oh..."Good morning, absolem. Things aren't always what they seem, huh!

Depends on their policies and positions on the subjects i care about...the same way i would apply the standard to a republican or independent. once in office we all are kind of stuck with the choices made by the registered voters of this country. don't you agree?

rates because that allele is selected for only in human beings who have lived where there's a high instance of malaria, which you don't find in southern Africa. People do not carry the sickle cell gene variant because they are of a certain race, but because of some more particularized population history.

Moderation..god afternoon. i complied...i googled it...now what? oh...from PBS and Pilar Ossorio: First of all, we need to say that being of a certain race is not what causes somebody to have the gene variant for Tay-Sachs, or the gene variant for sickle cell. It's having ancestors who were in a geographic region where those things either occurred by chance or were selected for, as in the sickle cell case. Although many people in the U.S. think sickle cell is a disease of black people, that's not necessarily true. Sickle cell is found in people in Greece, the island of Orchomenos, in particular, has very high carrier rates for sickle cell. There are also high carrier rates among people on the Arabian peninsula and people in India. There are parts of India where sickle cell carrier rate is as high as it is anywhere in Africa. On the other hand, people in the southern part of Africa - or people whose ancestry goes back to the southern part of Africa - don't have high sickle cell carrier

What happened to that old standby topic of War against women?

Or raising taxes on the wealthy (yawn)?

Or the old "gun show loophole", you know the one that does not exist?

Of course, we must accept the possibility that Murdoch was speaking about literal skin color, rather than culture.

Maybe he meant, "has darker skin."

Australian Rupert Murdoch, who came to the US as a wealthy media mogul in his middle age, now wants to tell African-Americans what a "real black" man looks like. I suppose his opinion is based on his his extensive (er, I mean non-existent) experience with middle-class black people.

That's rich.

It is such BS that the media continues to ask "what if" questions of Republican candidates. Why not do some what if for the Democrat side.

What if, what if? O got the first one: Why not ask Hillary how things would have been different if Monica had learned to swallow?

Carson explained that if confronted by a shooter asking about his religion, he would not only refuse to "cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me." 

something tells me that in a real shooting carson would be looking for the nearest exit...
