"I don’t think disagreeing with the organization makes me racist though." Of course it doesn't!!!!  And I couldn't agree more on wishing there was a way to separate the sentiment vs the organizat

So I have a couple of questions 

how is asking to see a birth certificate racism? I can see it as disrespectful and being an ass, but not racism.  He questioned his citizenship to the US, I never saw him say he hated Obama because he was black  

i have briefly read through what Tump said about the Central Park 5 and I never read anything about race. He said he hated rapist and thought they should be executed. How is wanting all rapist executed  racist?

Some people are just obtuse.  They cant see the difference between the slogan and organization. 

On one hand we can all agree Black lives matter but does that mean we must accept Marxism, socialism, looting, throwing bricks at cops, burning churches, beating people with whatever they can get their hands on.  The two are not mutually inclusive not matter how hard to try to push this agenda

You can call Kate a terrorist when see is spotted throwing bricks at cops and burning down the local corner store.

Donald Trump’s Long History Of Racism Laid Bare In New Ad

 

this is the problem with people who think the Huffington Post is anything but something to wipe your digital ass with.

Questioning the birth certificate with 24 different issues of fraud has no racist component about it. The same accusation could be leveled at any white guy, any Hispanic guy (or woman for that matter) and it still would not be racist.

To read HP's stuff requires a willingness to feel silly for about 5 minutes.

Nice try. If you want to see real racism, look at the guy who didn't want his kids going to school with blacks. No racial jungle for him. lol

Biden described Obama as "clean" and "articulate" and implied that this was so rare that is was a "fairytale" thing.

PD – do you feel the same way? Was it unusual for Obama to be clean? If so, why? Was it because he's black? If not, would you agree that's a pretty racist thing to say?

How Long Can The Media Cover For Biden’s Racial Gaffes?

Joe Biden has stepped on another racial landmine. As the country is torn apart by ethnic strife, the former Vice President continues to frustrate his campaign and his loyal supporters in the corporate media by saying goofy things about black people that at least border on abject racism. 

Thursday it was a statement, introduced by his classic, “Come on, man!” in which he suggested that unlike Latinos, black Americans do not have diversity of thought and ideas, with “notable exceptions.”

Put once again in the unenviable position of having to defend the Democratic nominee, CNN and MSNBC chose for the most part to ignore the troubling remarks. Others like the New York Times’ Jonathan Martin took a different approach, sidestepping the actual remarks to make a broader point about Biden’s propensity to gaffes.

You really have to hand it to Washington Post “Fact Checker” Glenn Kessler who just pretended that Biden didn’t say what Biden literally said. In a just world, Kessler would give himself four Pinocchios for this obvious gaslighting, but don’t hold your breath.

Despite these desperate deflections, the Biden camp itself decided it needed to address the comments. In a series of tweets, Biden said that he was not treating black Americans as a monolith, even though he clearly was. Later in the day he launched into some bizarre remarks about how Latinos come from all over the world “unlike African-American communities,” as if there are not black Americans from Africa, the Caribbean and Europe. These defensive statements were likely a result of President Trump highlighting the gaffe throughout the day.

 

This is becoming a real problem for Biden who recently insisted in an interview that if a black person, presumably one of those notable exceptions doesn’t vote for him than they “ain’t black.” In 2020, these kinds of comments not only sound tinny to younger Democrats, they come off often as down right racist.

In part, the issue for Biden is that he came of political age at a time when ethnic politics had a more playful and less corrosive feeling about it. This was a time when Bill Clinton was lovingly called the first black president. Even earlier in the 1970s and 1980s, politics was often played in ethnic clubs like the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

Ethnic jokes were more commonplace and acceptable, this first started catching up to Biden in 2008 when he joked that you had to have a slight Indian accent to go to 7-11. Nobody laughed. Another very common aspect late of 20th century racial politics was code switching, using different words or accents when speaking to different groups. We still see Biden do this with his use of “man” and “ain’t” to shall we say “urbanize” his delivery to black voters.

Biden’s antiquated ways of dealing with race may not be racist so to speak, but they are certainly outside the accepted parlance of the current Democratic Party. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and Biden, who spent most of his life getting laughs at such remarks, is not likely to be an exception to this rule.

The best Biden’s handlers can do in this situation is try to keep Old Joe in the basement with as few chances to foul up as possible. But with several of the latest polls showing a sharply tightening race, that may not be sustainable in the long run. Meanwhile the best the media can do is try to ignore the gaffes. But here they also have a problem, namely those notable exceptions.

There is no shortage of prominent black conservatives in today’s political landscape. From Harris Faulker, to Sen. Tim Scott, to Deroy Murdock and many others, there are black voices that resent and object to being told they are part of some Democratic monolith. The still mainly white mainstream media cannot ignore these voices; even though they desperately wish to do so.

Do not expect this to be the last time Biden makes a gaffe involving race. But do expect the corporate media to use all their power to protect him when he does. The question is, will that power be enough?

 

If I'm Trump, I spend the entire first debate making Biden talk about race. Then I just sit back and laugh.

Who Said It: Donald Trump Or A Racist?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you trying to amuse us? The VERY FIRST example was anything but racism. The man actually said he wanted to be black. Good grief you dwell in stupidity.

Dont bother @Sirhornsalot You cant reason with some people no matter how many facts you put in front of their face.

All of Bidens racist comments are pushed aside.  Hell there is image evidence of Biden and KKK Byrd and NOT ONE of bidens supporters has even acknowledged it or defended it instead they just ignore it and proclaim Trump a racist.

I have to admit, its a bit odd to see people call someone a racist with no evidence to support it – then defend the guy who can't be without "handlers" without saying something racist. They want to make THAT GUY president. lol

You truly can't make this up.

On my God! I have goosebumps on my goosebumps. It left out how Trump is Putin's bitch.:)

Another allegation based on zero evidence.  Mueller found nothing then for 2 years they tried to goat Trump into investigation interference.

You are special.
