    I'm certainly against reparations, but Tuberville's comments are really stupid and offensive. From the claim that Democrats are pro-crime and all support reparations to the idea that it's only blacks who commit crimes.

    Wonder what his former players think hearing that? That wasn’t even a dog whistle of racism, it was just straight up.

    I’m sure we’ll have someone along shortly to explain how that whole rant wasn’t racist, or that he has “black friends” so can’t be a racist.

    River / Bling,
    What's the issue? He is speaking from the heart and directly to his base constituents.

    Nothing surprising or unexpected here.

    He used his players of color to achieve his personal goals.

    At least they now know exactly whom he is.

    And another thing, the people that elected him, are exactly like him.

    The scary part is that he is a genius compared to Herscher Walker :confused:

    Well first off, his former players went to Ole Miss and Auburn, so they can’t read.

    Second, people in Alabama and Mississippi don’t waste their time with the WaPo.

    Third, who really gives a shit about this. His former players who love him will continue to because of the bond that they have. The former players who don’t like him will use this as reason to continue.

    it's not just the stupidity, it's the divisive meanness ... that half the country is 'pro-crime' ... that blacks commit all the crime.
    maybe he's stupid enough to believe that. or maybe he's just willing to continue to try to drive a really ugly wedge in order to help himself.

    People who don't like major politicians to be racist care. We will officially log you in the "cool with racists" category if we haven't already.

    Maybe you guys should be more pro-police and then maybe we wouldn’t see you as pro-crime. If the shoe fits.

    I’ll mark you down with the cocky, mean-spirited nerd crowd.
    Oh wait, I already did, you’re on the list.

    I'll take it. Much better than your "never adds anything substantive other than anti-Dem snark."

    You think a lot of yourself as expected. Lol. You add nothing but libbie platitudes and snarky divisiveness.
    I get it, you don’t like getting called out.

    Guys, how about sticking with the issue being discussed, rather than simply insulting other posters?
    thanks

    It is staggering to see the extent to which some will go to excuse this behavior. The hatred of all non-white, non-Christian, non-straight people in this country by Republicans goes so much deeper than I ever imagined.

    What is staggering is the leaps you libbies make to label people bigots and racists, etc. And I worry about how confident you are about making these divisive judgments.
    Ugly. Much worse than Tuberville who makes good points and likely libbie media misrepresented his entire point. No chance Tommy Is the racist you hope him to be.

    Yikes. That is uglier than his 3-2 win over Mississippi State that time.

    Really stupid stuff.
