As much as the left wants there to be, there is no racism epidemic in the US...

It's all identity politics... It's designed with only one thing in mind... To create division in our society and perpetuate victim hood so the democratic party can claim to be the saviors who will ride in and fix it. It's nothing but a strategy to obtain political power.

This is the reality the Democrats don't want people to see.

I never believed there was an epidemic of racism in the USA. Rather, racism is endemic there.

It's harder for a black man to get a job.

The manager doesn't even have to be racist. Say he has the opportunity to hire a black guy, but bob who works there is racist and might say something. Then the manager has to step in and fire Bob. Might as well avoid the problem and not hire the black guy.

That's systemic racism.

Racism is endimic everywhere. Just look at how France treats Muslims, or how Germany treats Muslims.

Or how Britain treats Muslims.

Coming from Nazi country that's a bold statement.

If you think about it, that just makes the GOP's inability to attract black voters that much more of a head-scratcher.

Why can't the GOP lure away the black vote, if the Democrats have been scamming them for decades?

Offer them some actual trinkets to replace the fake nothings they've been receiving in exchange for their support.

Sounds like low hanging fruit.

That's a powerful video. You won't see DP Democrats lining up to apologize for their party's failed policies that caused this.

In fact, you won't see them take responsibility at all; just blame Trump, imaginary racists, or white privilege.

Unlike the USA, European countries did not import slaves to do their work like draft animals. There is no population of the descendants of former slaves needing civil rights in the European Union.

Where did you get the idea that we import slaves to do the work of draft animals?

Powerful to whom? The voters in the district she is trying to win?

No, we don't do that.


You're thinking of 150 years ago. And we were British when we started doing it. For like a hundred years. Britain banned slaver in 1835. We banned it 30 years later. Britain did better than us, but not a lot better.

Germany had slaves during WWII.

The Dutch have a whole coast named after them in Africa, "The Dutch Slave Coast". How do you think it got that name?

I take it by your use of "we" that you associate yourself with the slave owners of the southern states. Whenever it started, it was perpetuated in the United States before it was outlawed and only after a civil war. Slavery morphed into a black underclass into present times in the USA.

Mostly rich and well to do don't cut it. Where's the interview with the single mother with three kids trying to stay afloat during a jobless pandemic exacerbated by King Whitey Trump?
You're repugnant!

The problem with that position is that policing standards are set at the local level and its democrats who are in control where we are seeing the problems.

I have never heard a lefty refer to our racial problems as "epidemic". That sounds more like something somebody that does not have a working knowledge of the English language would say. Most of those characters are on your side of the political fence Bubba.

We do have structural racism in this country. What, we don't think our original sin didn't leave White Americans with some racial "issues" just as it left Black Americans with some issues?

Imagine this a-hole coming across this video and thinking 'I'll put this on DP, it's such a gotcha moment'. What a putz.

It's a powerful video to anyone who watches it and realizes that 50 years of Democratic Party policy is a failure.
