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.

Democrats are the party of black face, white hoods, and David Duke endorsements.

David Duke Defends Ilhan Omar From Anti-Semitism Accusations

Ilhan Omar had an unlikely defender on Monday amid the debate over whether her remarks about AIPAC were anti-Semitic: David Duke.

Duke, a Holocaust denier and the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, tried to back up Omar’s false claim that AIPAC pays politicians to be pro-Israel. “The most powerful political moneybags in American politics are Zionists,” he tweeted.

Duke previously tried to insert himself into the political conversation last week, when he endorsed the Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard for president. Gabbard quickly denounced him and rejected the endorsement.

Really?  Cause Stephen Miller is still a top adviser to Donald Trump and Steve King was all about white nationalism not to far back...oh and who did Duke support in 2016?  I'm sure there are good people on both sides too!

I love how Trumpsters and conservative take relatively small things and blow them up while ignoring the the blatant issues within in their party.

A top Virginia Republican has joined a growing list of Democrats under fire for past racially insensitive photos and costumes.

Virginia Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment was the managing editor of Virginia Military Institute's 1968 yearbook, which includes photos of students wearing blackface and people holding Confederate flags. Racial slurs like the N-word were published in addition to Asian slurs used to identify a student from Thailand.

Lastly...you want to argue economic philosophies and size of government...fine.  But don't even bother with the false equivalence on race and equality between Dems and GOP.  If you do not want to be associated with it...fine.  If you want to condemn racism and bigotry...great.  But don't tell me that GOP is looking out for minorities, women, or the poor...they are not.

He says he works in the financial industry. But a customer rep that answers phones technically works in the financial industry. (Yes, I can help you with your log in. I’m taking a guess.) lol

See, there is the poison of identity politics. "Acting" like a skin color.  I have never identified as non-white, white, green or purple (except in font)  You see how this little trope has driven the discussion to the real problem?  These stupid and petty examples are not the problem or the solution.  They are nit picky and trivial. It is what makes them so easy to make fun of.

Your from the Philippines bro. (remember that)

For the record I met really kind and nice people that are from the Philippines. I just find it odd that you are against some people.

Wrong...my parents are from the Philippines, I am born and raise American.  But to me that would still make no difference,  I'm here and an american citizen.  That is how I identify.

See?  You assume (without knowing anything about a person)  I should have one but I don't. I am American,  Family descent is PI but that changes nothing about me. I am more than comfortable in my "skin".  All these snowflakes are the ones who itch so much wallowing in self-loathing guilt.  I got none of that.

Notice how eyephone launches into a racist attack against MoreKaos in response to a legitimate criticism of Democrats.  This is so telling.
