    I will......it's a blast......seeing them stumble around disoriented. You gotta remember, most democrats, who tend to be on the younger side, were not around during Jim Crow and the democrats rule of the south......and they flounder when faced with evidence of their parties behavior.

    Do you flounder and stumble when people bring to your attention that being an "American" carries the same judgement?

    It's that very same party that makes that judgement.

    The judgement is warranted if you think judgement attaches forever to institutions based on historical behaviors.... which is what he's trying to do with the "southern Dem!" game.

    What I was pointing out is that it's the Dems who are currently making the accusations about America being racist, and just happen to be the ones who also were in favor of Jim Crow laws:

    "These laws were enacted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries by white Southern Democrat-dominated state legislatures to disenfranchise and remove political and economic gains made by black people during the Reconstruction period."

    Yet the people they refer to when calling America "systemically racist" are not democrats. They always point their finger in the opposite direction that they should.
    Jim Crow laws - Wikipedia.

    Its irrelevant. Thats my point.

    Racism was built into America's constitution before the were even Ds and Rs. So you should take the same shame you dish out. Assuming youre American.

    No one stumbles over racist Southern Democrats, it's a fact of history. What's hilarious is pretending as if that matters now. I think most people understand, the racism someone perpetuates today is far more important than the racism of people that no longer exist. My favorite is watching people embrace the Confederacy arguing it has nothing to do with racism, while doing mental gymnastics to say the Democrats—you know, the people that made up the Confederacy—were racists, but not the failed state they created that enshrined racism as a permanent fixture of its Constitution. They love the "Democrats' flag," but not the Democrats? Yep, they keep dancing.

    This is the most absurd point we hear so much from the Right. As if the Democrat party of the 21st century is the exact same as the one that held control in the South during the 19th century. It is utterly maddening.

    But for people who think shallowly if they see the same word it clearly triggers the assumption that it is the same thing.

    Like the word "computer" which used to be a woman who did computations. So why is my laptop not wearing a pretty dress? It's a computer! SAME WORD = SAME THING.

    And now the Democrats what to undo the system -- and lookie, lookie who's fighting to preserve what they built so long ago.

    I guess some folks never got out of the late 19th or early 20th centuries.

    It is good to always be mindful of our past so as to avoid repeating the same mistakes. That is "growth". The Democrat party grew up and away from the grotesque racism.

    America has a history of racism, regardless of party. And it is that history that we need to be ever mindful of so that we, as a nation, can grow and change and become better.
