Can we clean house and eliminate all symbols of racism? [Vanity]

Shall we get on the bandwagon and help remove symbols of racism, bias, and bigotry. The flag and people of the Civil War are being devoured right in front of us. What about other things? Like, for example, race and gender based groups? Maybe we should ask the question, if I cannot substitute White, or Male, then maybe there is a problem with the group?

Candidates: National Black Chamber of Commerce, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Women Business Owners, Congressional Black Caucus, etc. Maybe also Black History Month?

I have always felt that determining if a race or gender group or event is acceptable is whether you can substitute other groups. If not, then it is also wrong. If we are going to root out -isms, lets be honest and root them all out.

Your thoughts, your candidates?

That is the point. Whiteness is racist to the leftist goons. They will not stop, short of genocide.

The Democratic Party would have to be the first item on the list. And Senator Byrd would have to go, as would all legislation passed by racist Presidents, such as Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

Thieves see a world full of thieves. Adulterers see adultery in every glance in their direction. Racists see racism.

I look at a one dollar bill and see George Washington; soldier, diplomat and president. Others see a slave owner. Which of us is seeing the real picture?

You’ve just fallen into the Leftist trap.

The word “racist” is a meaningless word that means whatever the Left says it is.

Best idea - STOP USING VAGUE AND LYING LEFTIST TERMS LIKE “RACIST”.

The next step that headlines like this will encourage is taking down all statues of Washington and Jefferson who were slave owners.

Stop parroting the Delusional Lying Left.

The number one candidate is the Democrat Party.

No other group since the Nazi Party represents slavery, bigotry, intolerance, violence and fascist values like the Democrats.

Well, on that theme, if anyone wants to dump their money that pictures now villanous figures, send me a private message and I’ll give you my address. I’ll accept any, except those $3 Obama bills. Er, wait, I’ll accept them too as they might make good fire starters.

You don’t really understand. Whatever is done, it’s never enough. Think about it.

Are you defending the Congressional Black Caucus while saying not to the White Caucus? Okay with Black Chamber of Commerce, etc.? Or suggesting all are or should be okay? These are supremacist groups—race and gender based. Traditional, real male and female genders. We all have no choice, except by birth, what race and gender we are. Creating exclusive groups to promote these over others is supremacy. I think all are wrong regardless of the excuse given. What do you think?

Define “racism”.

Whenever someone disagrees with a liberal.

I'm wondering when the Americans Indians will demand that place names that were derived from Indian languages be changed due to language appropriation. Like Alabama?

What about other religions that have to live in cities/areas named for Christian figures. Like Saint Clair, Minnesota?

I’d like to get rid of all of those Mexican names if we could.

Why would it be a problem to substitute other colors?

I think you’ve fallen into the Leftist trap of making issues where there are no issues like the Lying Left does. White nationalists are not the problem in America. AnitFa and Islamic jihad are the problem.

The Delusional Lying Leftist )(”DULL”) Media - the DULL Media - are the spokesmen and supporters of AntiFa and Leftist violence.

All the Lying Left will condemn is the Right at Charlottesville. The Right had a permit for their protest. The Lying Left will not condemn AntiFa and Leftist thugs in Charlottesville who had no permit to be on the street.

The Lying Left is in league with those that hate America and want to destroy America. Don’t join them.

Instead, let’s do what we can to destroy the Delusional Lying Leftist Media - the DULL media.

Both of you. Facts are facts. George Washington was all of these things. The problem is people who don't want to admit to that.

And racists don't see racism. They see "realism." The people loading Jews into trains to go to death camps thought they were doing their patriotic duty (or just didn't want to join the others in the train). The people getting loaded into the trains? They saw racism.
