We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Why is this? Why is desiring Constitutional government anti-black and anti-brown people? (toon is h/t Lucianne)
My view is that the assumption that people with more skin pigmentation cannot make a decent life in America without government hand-outs and special favors is insulting, condescending, racist - and simply untrue.
Am I a racist for saying this? America has tons more white folks on the various government doles than folks of color. I'd like to see them all get their act together, regardless of pigmentation. America is the least color-conscious nation on the planet. Nobody here cares about that, anymore (except for the race-mongers who still try to make careers out of it).
The amendment process is part of the constitution. If you don't like it, change it. Do Democrats prefer 'democracy' or elitism? Rule from the bottom up or from the top down? The contradictions are enormous!
" America is the least color-conscious nation on the planet"
Wrong, actually. I've never seen a more colour conscious nation, ever, and I've visited dozens.
Maybe Mugabe's Zimbadwe is more colour conscious, or Vietnam, but that's about it.
No other country will class you so exactly based on how many percent of what race's gene's you have in your body to determine in what social group you belong for just about anything.
No country I know of will "adjust" highschool grades to ensure that there's no difference in average grades between race groups so determined.
