A.) The government is entitled to more of her money.
B.) This is a racist country and that the GOP party houses a majority of them.
I don't know what you're trying to get at....maybe you misread what I am getting at....
GW had a very diverse administration...more diverse than Clinton's, and yet the GOP still can't overcome being called racists.
Being called racist has nothing to do with the amount of cabinet members of color or ethnicity a President has, and your party affiliation to said President. Its another ridiculous way to make a stupid point about nothing. What is racist about the GOP? Funding and promoting the distribution of a video the calls the President's dead mother an interracial *****
Have you ever been a direct victim of racism, reverse racism? Surprisingly, I have been. For a brief moment in time, I was able to realize what it actually means to be minimized and characterized by something as trivial as the amount of melanin in my skin - without, of course, the centuries of abuse, murder, slavery and lack of inalienable human rights ingrained into my genetic makeup.
The GOP is represented by people who think raped women should be forced to give birth, simply because THEIR own religious beliefs say so. There are members of the GOP party in Congress that think the world is still only 9,000 years old, despite the massive fossil record and carbon dating evidence to prove otherwise. One would think that "party" evolution should be a primary concern of the GOP moving. Then again, when those beliefs mirror the beliefs of the people that vote them into office, why ruin a good thing?
Your post was taken at face value. If you do not like being misunderstood, represent your opinion in better detail. The old black and white argument has become frivolous at best these days. The last census stated that more than half of all new births in this country are non-white. Guess what that means?
