    ahhh I see, so if RC was a war veteran it would all be OK. Am I offended OBOB yeah, but not to the point of slamming him the way RC has been slammed. And certainly, he will not get anywhere the heat RC is getting. The bigger issue is double standard.

    Lets see...how many times has Sharpton accused white people of being guilty only to have to the legal process do their job of due diligience and show that the accused were innocent?

    Example 1
    Example 3
    Two words: Trayvon Marton....Need I say more or provide a link?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Responses_to_the_2006_Duke_University_lacrosse_case

    How about Rangel's own racist feelings or actions:
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/glennthrush/0609/Rangel_racial_polarization_if_Cuomo_runs.html

    Jessie Jackson has had his share of racist statements
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/clinton/frenzy/jackson.htm

    Jessie you have to be blacker to count as being black:

    Get real JDR. It is these three hucksters and more that are actually making the white people the bogey men.

    Like I said, you point to only those three, ignoring the endless racism emanating from the right wing. It's scapegoating. It's deflection.

    Be born yesterday? Do know your age reference in this post blows up your position?

    The vast majority of those democrats were in their late 20's and early 50's back in the mid 1950's and early 1960's. That means they would be nearling 90 or 80. In most of those cases they don't vote any more because they are either to feeble or they are dead. Thus those Republicans of that day are no longer relevent in the Republican party today.

    Goldwater last ran for presidency back in 1964. This is not revelent today (49 years later).

    We are way past the point that the Republican party, especially the Republicans in the south to be labeled racists.

    Well why dont you trot out the endless examples then? Right wing racism and Charlie Rangel's racism can actually be exclusive of one another. This thread is about Charlie, not all the endless racism you say exists. Talk about deflection.

    I don't get your point. George Wallace and Everett dirksen are both long dead. Moc was trying the bs stunt of claiming civil rights as the work of republicans. the republicans who were on the right side of that history, along with all democrats not from the deep south would not be welcome in today's party, and some where booed at the republican convention of the year the civil rights act passed. what about these facts do you not understand?

    Good luck on getting an answer. Most likely jdr believes this racism exists because he needs one more brick in his wall to feel superior to "the right."

    No, just waiting for the right to confront their own ignorance about the racism that does exist rather than living in the world of denial that they continually do.

    Why would that be "requisite"? Well, I suppose if it isn't publicized, then it doesn't have any effect. I thought that would be common sense, but maybe not.

    Oh I understand. I understand that these arguments are people bringing up about the Republicans being the leader of the civil rights movement to save the day for LBJ are that the Republicans in the South That the KKK is still out riding at night burning crosses some still think that once counters are for whites only at the back of the blasts as for Blacks only those days are gone thank god they're gone are racist because they left the Democratic Party back in the day all that stuff is history these people are gone for the most part dead and gone some of the remaining ones of both sides are stuck in the past. Some of the African Americans that were around In the 50s and 60s are stuck in the past they still thinking that the Klan is riding at night burning crosses and lynching people. Some of the whites tag at were around in those days still think it is wrong to mix the races and that the ills of this country are due to the black man.

    It is time for all us to get into the present. Is the present perfect? No, we still have work to done on both sides of the race issue. Things can get better but they won't if we let the race baiters and the pimps (our politicians) continue to divide us and keep the status quo the same .
