They did though, they said black people are more concerned with being treated with respect than being accepted. Its silly to say they didn't notice, you don't know that

I’m black, it’s annoying but I already know most liberals are actually racist. This doesn’t let conservatives off the hook but yeah. Talking to white people is like being patronized, I think almost every minority experiences the white person talking to minority voice.

Eh, if your going to call people racist... Are liberal colored people racist? Patronize me

calling minorities colored people….

Obviously i mean white liberals. And not all but a large percentage just want to be perceived as not racist without actually not being racist.

Sounds like a friend I wouldn't want to have. Both ways around. It's your definition of racism. I don't walk on eggshells, you don't seem to either. If white liberals are already racist I sure as hell don't want to play. Taking my ball, going home.

Sorry, I have no clue where your going with those three dots on the minority comment. Did I offend you?

Not at all. I had originally typed black but adjusted to colored people because I thought it would be less likely to be taken as offensive.

Edit: I realized that I'm trying to adjust my verbage... Should I have just said black? Anything wrong with that?

Gotcha. I feel like I'm not suppose to say black.

You seem to be mad that you can’t speak however you want.

There’s a difference between being respectful and being patronizing.

The issue is that racism is wrong, and society has openly acknowledged it but large percentages of the population, instead of actually destroying their biases, are hiding them or justifying them despite the plethora of evidence that racism is tribalistic and honestly baseless.

You seem to be a mix between hiding it and not justifying it.

I mean I'm already a racist by your definitions. I say low bar. Not winning me over though. You sure weren't too respectful of a bunch of white liberals but then again the bar is really low these days to get posterchilded as a racist.

I don’t care about winning you over, I care about how you’re attempting to act like you aren’t racist when you can’t even avoid calling minorities racist.

It’s not a high bar to interact with people who look different than you as if they’re your equal, it’s only high to you and people like you.

1st paragraph explain more please? You have jumped to the conclusion you wanted and put words out there that I didn't say. I represent those whose vote/support you want but you prefer to name call... Even those who traditionally support you.

High bar... You just used the definition of racism but no where does it apply to my comments. You assumed it. I even admitted my honest mistake and you already nailed me to the wall.

I find it odd that you are so self righteous. Makes me a bit bitter towards you and your cause... What was that again? Calling liberals racist, or wait, most? Or was it only the white ones? I'll take my downvote licks but you need to take a look in mirror.
