Why do rich white liberals and poor blacks both vote Democrat? It’s called “the custodial state”.

When you’re rich, you can afford to be liberal.

at some point the question will be asked,

“who needs who?”

then it will be an issue of sorting out the race politics from the left wing lunatics. (acorn etc.)

Hi, first post here. As a Black/White person and a solid young conservative, I am going to be brutally honest on why the Republican party has a problem with minoirties: I have lurked here for several years and have watched the highs and lows of the Bush administration since getting into politics post 9/11 (I was 13 at the time). While I support your stance against illegal immigration and the looney-bin multiculturalism found in Europe, in all honesty, there is a sizeable (but by no means majority) element on this site and in the conservative realm in general who do in fact harbor negitive to hateful feelings against people of color. Any time there is a thread involving crime/social decay, out of 100 replies, about 10-20 will be about how it was commited by an "illegal" or "Black youth" and how the "darkening of America" is "Threatening our way of life". Just recently, a Italian trashbag shot at a family in a movie theature here in Philly. That only garnered a few replys. But create a thread with a Black person commiting the crime, and it's like Yankees ticker tape parade in terms of having the "Suburbanites" sound off on their views befitting of 1930's Germany. Is conservatism as a whole "racist"? Absolutley not even close. However, is there a racist element here on FR and in general? Yes. And you better bet your ass the Liberals and race-hustlers comb this site and the blogs for any fodder they can find to paint us all as yahoos and nazis. Stop pandering to the reactionaires/ignorants who mascararde as "conservatives" and get back to revolution-era American values sans slavery of course ;)
