    If they had sided with black and brown people, everyone would have higher waged right now.  There is strength in numbers, and if working people of all backgrounds had stood together as a counterweight to corporate power, they would have increased their own bargaining power and strengthened the labor movement.  Labor is far weaker in the U.S. than in other countries.  A stronger labor movement would have meant more income and better working conditions for all American workers.  If you participate in your own oppression for some perceived short-term gain and fight over crumbs left under the table, you're only playing yourself in the end.

      turn 2!get screwed. If they get played repeatedly,  can't feel sorry 4 them & not wasting my breath. They vote 4 evil & are a party 2 same. White working class say bye-bye to that taste of the good life u got. U screwed ur kids.

      Tired of this crap.

      The radical Republican party is the party of oppression, fear, loathing and above all more money and power for the people who robbed us.
