    lets examine some current incidents and look at WHO calls it racism and who says its not an example of racism.



    can you republicans give us an example of a current event you agree had elements of racism in it
    The media adding " women of color" to the Congresswoman is an example. They could have left their label as Congresswomen.

    Then you don’t understand racism. She reduced people to the color of their skin. Nothing more

    That in and of itself is racist.

    Of course that is what the democrat party has done to blacks since slavery so of course it feels natural to you

    I just did

    Also when Biden said Obama was “articulate and clean”. Remember that?

    Remember when Hillary talked about Indians and owning 7-11s?

    A phrase we sometimes hear is "I don't have a racist bone in my body". It's been used in this thread and both Biden and Trump have used it recently. Considering no one is perfect and we are all flawed is that even possible? We all have biases and prejudices. Can a person really not have a racist bone in their body?

    Of course, when you're a liberal, it's ALWAYS someone else's fault.
    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent

    Yes. You conflate bias with racism. A common error but an error nonetheless.
    We all have bias, that does not mean we all find our race to be superior.

    My rule of thumb is if it requires ‘interpretation’ defer to the less judgmental interpretation.

    If everyone would do that the subject of race would hardly ever come up. Unfortunately, we’re largely a nation of hypersensitive sissies when it comes to race.

    We voted him a racist in the House and you voted for him because he is a racist.
    That about as official as it needs to be. It's official. We agree.

    The term “racist” has long been used by the democrat party as a means to shut down debate.

    Unfortunately too many wus Trans Rightys have fallen for it because nobody wants to be called a racist.

    Fortunately more and more people are waking up to this Alinsky tactic and are shunning it

    No. It is impossible. Everybody dislikes somebody for something. They can however be smart enough to know not all people of one group are the same. People are individuals. They can also be smart enough to not let a persons history, color, religion, sex, etc, etc, define them as a person or make judgements based on that. Only the weak minded and ignorant separate people in groups. Identity politics comes to mind.
    Consider the Oyster.

    C-4 is just angry playdoh.

    Keep in mind that you failed on a previous thread to post an example of racism in the current political landscape.

    Good points...

    So what do you see as a solution to this frailty common to man & women-EVERYWHERE!!!

    True up to a point. However, this falls down when the military is considered. The military prides itself upon dehumanizing its charges in order to make them obedient killers. ( It's absolutely no good to deny it- it's in the fucking manual ). If you were to take, for example, a squad of Izrael's fascist thugs it would take a great deal of de-conditioning in order to restore what decent people regard as human values. They- like many other soldiers- have been dehumanized. Their 'individuality' has been suppressed. In some cases the conditioning is so deep that vets. can never recover.

    Of course, ' separating them into groups ' is precisely what the military does. Further, conditioned military personnel are encouraged to encompass racism in order to view the ' enemy ' as a lesser entity. This fostered racism is very easily transferred to civilian populations under the heading of ' patriotism '- a much-maligned concept.
    So the value of individuality cannot be over-emphasized at a time when greedy racists themselves are calling the West to war.
