Blackface was invented, promoted, and perpetuated by the entertainment industry so clearly Liberals and Dems cannot be blamed for it because there are no Liberals or Dems in the entertainment industry. Oh wait.

Waiting for someone to tell me that Lincoln was a Republican and Democrats were anti-civil rights.

The GOP leadership in the House of Representatives do not promote racist views from my previous article that I posted. Maybe we shouldn’t blame Republicans. Simply point the finger at Morekas for supporting those views.

(I knew about McCarthy’s statement long time ago. I’m not sure Morekas knew about it or maybe he doesn’t care. I was just holding it and see how far Morekas will take this. I’m playing chess while Morekas is playing checkers.) ;)

That's the point though. No one should care about these trivial nonsensical stories.  They diminish what is real racism by muddying the water with a non-issue.  You really think someone made the tenuous connection of Prospector Pete with racism?  Who is this snowflake?  NO one in the 30 years I have gone to CSLB events has EVER mentioned that connection...because it doesn't exist.  You cry wolf too often and soon no one will listen.

We can do both!  We can deal with "real" racism and vestiges/symbols of racism at the same time!

Yes, real symbols are obvious, swastikas, hangman’s nooses, white hoods, these are clearly and somewhat unquestionably racist. Prospector Pete? Not so much. Who is the arbator of this new and nuanced racism? You? They got rid of the Aztec warrior mascot at SDSU, who was triggered by a race that has been extinct for centuries?  Who is next? Tommy Trojan because the ancient romans were a cruel people to...everyone?  Casper the friendly ghost cause he triggers my memories of my stillborn brother? This is ridiculous to the point of comedy...hence this thread.

I don't care.

As I discovered at Berkeley as a young person, telling activists you don't care about their cause du jour drives them bonkers, far worse than disagreeing with them. But it was soooo fun to say "I don't care" to them.

Your racist views are not the GOP’s views.

So this is a serious question.

Do you really think morekaos is racist?
