Quote from 538 article...

"There hasn’t been much of an overall increase or decrease in the index since (Pres.) Obama took office. On average, between the 2004 and 2006 editions of the surveys — the last two before Obama was either a president or a candidate — the index of negative racial attitudes stood at 22 percent for white Democrats and 26 percent for white Republicans. Those values are within the margin of error for those in the 2010 and 2012 surveys.

"If there’s a discouraging trend, it’s not so much that negative racial attitudes toward blacks have increased in these polls, but that they’ve failed to decrease under Obama, as they did so clearly for most of the past three decades."

billgrr, since you've said that others doing c/p's nauseate you, I just have to say...

your several c/p's are nauseating as well.

Boom.

Now if we could trust billgrr to do equal time in examples of Democrat racist statements (which we can't) I hope somebody else will do the research and c/p their results here.

"And a word of warning to progressive Democrats like myself.....We don't need to prove we're better because we don't discriminate. Just let others prove they're not because they do!"

This was a warning?

I didn't realize that "jury-rigged", a term used to describe an inprovised fix to something, was now a racist term. Seriously, BG? Really?

"If only Donald Sterling would have stopped at our Free Lunch Counter Café in Hillsboro, and had some of our peas soup, he NEVER would have been spouting the things he did. Our peas soup helps ALL move forword..."

Your Hillsboro café needs to expand to the size of the Bismarck Civic Center.

At the 2013 Republican CPAC the topic was “Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You’re Not One?”

K Carl Smith, the moderator of the CPAC session, calls himself a “Frederick Douglass Republican.” While he was speaking, the following exchange took place. Smith, speaking of Frederick Douglass, said “When Douglass came through slavery … he [wrote] a letter to his former slave master and said: ‘I forgive you for all the things you did to me’.”

Only at a Republican convention can a discussion of how the GOP really isn’t racist turn into an exhibition of the party’s racism.
