POTUS,had a grandmother to take care of him when his father & mother deserted him . Yet ,He referred to her as a typical " White Person " .RACIST ??? . Go ask POTUS .

by 2parrots  Mar 29, 2015

Our President also referred to to his grandmother as a " typical white person ",she who helped rear him when his father & mother had moved on to other things .

Please include the Black Panthers with the KKK. I detest & denounce the views of both .Marion Robinson`s statement is relevant as it shows how she viewed others .the fact that the object of her comment becoming POTUS is not a reason to say ," Nothing to see here folks, move along ".Many on this site write comments that they are not prepared or unable to back up in an intelligent manner . They just hope by using the racist comment that will scare everybody from conversing in an adult fashion .

by 2parrots  Mar 27, 2015

You say you cannot comment for others , which I appreciate .Yet MidNJ ,who started the racism accusations cannot comment for himself .

by 2parrots  Mar 27, 2015

Personal attacks include accusing others of racism ,without any facts to back it up . Silence is THUNDER.

by 2parrots  Mar 27, 2015

Marion Robinson quote is not maybe she did or maybe she didn`t say .She did . President Bush is married to Laura not Laurel .

by 2parrots  Mar 26, 2015

What`s your view on the Marion Robinson quote regarding her biracial son-in-law ?

by 2parrots  Mar 26, 2015

Looks like MidNJ needs you as his spokesperson .His silence says it all . At least you were willing to reply . Thank you .

Part 7 As the Dem Party became more liberal, the GOP became more conservative. Nixon made way for the politicization of religion, and Reagan's 1980 election finally pushed the liberal Republicans out, even pushing the Dem Party more conservative. While the Dem Party has begun to swing back more liberal (e.g., supporting marriage equality), the GOP has become more conservative (e.g., opposing Civil Rights legislation). The Parties have become more polarized. Civil discourse, a fundamental principal of democracy, is currently dead.

Part 6 During Roosevelt's terms, the Dem Party became more liberal (strengthen by the New Deal), as did the GOP. Large fractions of both Parties favored Unions and Civil Rights. But the conservative southern Dems were still a powerful pull. And even the conservative GOP fraction joined with the conservative Dem fraction in the McCarthy trials and other conservative events. Slowly, the shift away from mixed liberal/conservative political parties began during the 1950s push for Civil Rights, culminating in Kennedy's push for Civil Rights legislation, which was signed into law by Johnson. Although southern conservative Dems (who absolutely opposed Civil Rights legislation in favor of Jim Crow laws, e.g., Bull Conner) began to join the GOP in the 1950s (e.g., Strom Thurmond & Ronald Reagan), the biggest loss of southern conservative Dems came during and after the 1960s.
