    So those statements equate to lazy and stupid? Really????

    FWIW, I thought you made a good point here. That is what the parties are selling is it not? And you think this is a constructive mentality? Specifically, applied to race?

    Yeah, I think that saying what they're doing is not working for them and that you know better than they do what they should be doing is kind of calling them stupid.

    it is hardly surprising that the latinos that have come here from largely socialistic countries would favor more guvment

    Just because you immigrate to America, or even if you are an American, doesn't mean that you don't like being told what to do and what to think.

    Just watch a segment of Watter's World for some quick proof.

    If you say so (eye roll). Gotta give you credit though, that's some pretty impressive spin. If you don't already, you should look into a PR role with a politician or pol organization. But at least you qualify by admitting ("kind of") that you aren't really sure about the point you're trying to make.

    However, to back up my point, let's do a little exercise in political power. Now, I don't think it can be argued that few if any segment of our society has more lobbying power than Financial Services sector. And we all know that this sector lobbies and supports both parties extensively. This can probably be said about the top-5 to top-10 industries/special interests in Washington. So, I ask you, how is the premise that playing both sides of the isle is more beneficial than playing one side incorrect?

    And, please, explain how that is calling all black people lazy and stupid?

    The issue of "working both sides" is that the Republican Party has shown very little flexibility on major issues in the past few election cycles in order to attract minorities. So for example, George W. Bush did work to attract Latinos by adopting some of their issues. It worked relatively well, resulting in 40% of Latinos voting for the Republicans. Great plan right? Unfortunately, Republicans have since been moving further and further to the right on this issue, alienating Latinos in the process.

    So the problem is that even when there is something to gain (as they have been shown to potentially gain a decent chunk of Latinos when they take a couple of policy positions and actively campaign for their votes), Republicans have not shown a willingness to reach out to minorities on a wide variety of issues.

    your funny 108- I have never cared what you libs think of me- it has nothing to do with whether or not they vote for my party-it has to do with how they have blindly followed a party who after 50 years they are no better off than they were 50 years ago

    Because the pubs tell them that it's their own fault their former jobs were moved overseas and now that they are out of work they are lazy scumbags.

    It's absolutely true. The Romney types of the world believe that only an employee is responsible for losing his job. I don't know how he sleeps at night.

    He sleeps fine because your perception is that of a fictional and fantastical nature.

    Agreed. But it's not like there isn't a wing of the (R)s that agree with you. Unfortunately, IMO, the immigration debate (like so many others) seems to be framed in an incorrect way. From what I can gather from the saner opponents of "amnesty", the opposition is not race based. Class based? Perhaps. In that respect the (D)s have done a swell job of making it seem racist and positioning it that way. I think there are plenty of valid, non-racial, reasons to oppose open borders. Unfortunately, when we focus solely on the racial component, we ignore a lot of the real issues at hand with immigration.

    This exactly the reason.

    funny though, if the (D) party does nothing for minorities what freebies are these groups receiving?

    I think that's unfair.

    They are a people who tend to follow their leadership, which is understandable given what MLK meant to them...for instance....It isnt an issue of being dumb, but rather the tradition of following a very small core of leadership almost unanimously.....But now, unfortunately, when a fellow African American tries to lead from a different point of view, they are snuffed out by the old guard who still thinks this is 1960, and wants them to keep thinking they are mistreated and underprivileged. Do you think Jesse Jackson is empowering African Americans at this point in our history?

    What exactly have they gotten for their votes for the Dems?
    - 25% abortion rate
    - A increasingly destroyed family structure
    - A society increasingly dependent on the ones that buy their votes

    And on it goes.

    I am all for helping the poor and those in need, but you cant ignore the abuse of the system.

    No one uses African Americans for their selfish goals, quite like the Democratic Party.

    By the way Stats show that Blacks are equally against Abortion and Gay marriage as white Americans, so on some issues they have just as much reason to vote (R) as I do.
