  •  It is racist, but race division is what Repubs ... (0+ / 0-)

    want.  

    It was how they pitted poor whites against newly freed blacks during the reconstruction.

    And it's why you see race used so much as a strategy by the GOP. Why? Because the numbers are in their favor. If they can make it about black vs. white, they enjoy a roughly 85% to 15% lead.

    Notice how Obama deftly never fell for the race baiting during 2008.

    Screaming "racism" is what Republicans want. It's the fight they keep trying to push.

    The fight they don't want is about the economy. I'd rather give them the fight they don't want.
