Gene, you seem to be on really shaky ground on this one.

Resorting to logic and truth will not be tolerated.

some good points to support the view that white cons really aren't racists like lefties are, and do love their blacks black...Rice, Powell, Cain, Love, Elder - love them all....no doubt...

but does the love (tolerance, if not embrace) depend on the individual's sharing of con beliefs and the status quo?

explain white con's response to...Obama, Kaepernick, BLM, dark-skinned "suspects"...(or even Pocahontas, who qualifies under the "one drop rule")


no offense...

Gene,
I caught that video on YouTube this morning, and I felt it made some good points. With that said, I'm sure there are others here who will disagree.

No offense taken and while I don't speak for anyone other than myself, my opinion of the highlighted characters/organizations has nothing to do with color or DNA, it's about their actions and their positions.

The results of one DNA test I took says I have about five time more Native American DNA than "Pocahontas" so am I more credible than her for that reason alone? Heck no. She benefited by claiming that heritage and her reaction since says all I need to know about her character. I believe in fair requirements* and closing the most qualified.

* Requirements that are related to the job and not gender or ethnicity.
