Where’s the Racism Coming From?

Seems to be always from one side. “Progressive” blacks hating whites. “Progressive” whites hating whites, and there’s still some old-school klanners kicking around.

An expert witness paid with tax dollars by the United States Department of Justice testified that North Carolina election laws impact black voters disproportionately and that blacks are less sophisticated.
Charles Stewart, a political scientist was retained by the Justice Department to testify against voter identification laws and other election integrity measures. His testimony argued that ending same day voter REGISTRATION and requiring voters to vote in the precinct where they live constitutes racial discrimination.

…It’s also the case that — well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public affairs. That also tells me from the literature of political science that there are likely to be people who will end up not REGISTERING and not voting. People who correspond to those factors tend to be African Americans, and, therefore, that’s another vehicle through which African Americans would be disproportionately affected by this law.

…As I said before, this is particularly a mechanism and a time that’s well situated for less sophisticated voters, and, therefore, it’s less likely to imagine that these voters would — can figure out or would avail themselves of other forms of registering and voting.

Yep according to this PAID representative of the US Justice department voter ID laws are racist because blacks as a whole are too dumb to register to vote….

Who’s the racists again? Can you imagine if a conservative said this?

    I forget. Is it your turn to bring the diapers, or mine?
    I’m so sick of officially designated victims that I could pis* a connonball without a wince.

    I ask over and over about racism: Are “they” people?

    If “they” are people then they are the same as me. No different than me, plus or negative in how they should be treated and protected by the law. The same rights. The same responsibilities.

    However, if “they” are not people then “they” NEED special protections in the law. They have lessened responsibilities because, as not-people, they can’t handle being equal.

    That’s the lesson all of the “protected class” laws are teaching. [Class] is not as good as straight white male so needs all manner of help to achieve parity.

    These laws prevent equality in more ways than one, the most tragic is the lowered expectations that the “protected” consistently live down to rather than attempt anything close to their true potential.

      Also it ENCOURAGES racism. Take a well-adjusted white male who grew up in a very well mixed neighborhood. Let’s have the best man at his wedding be a fellow of African heritage. This is a truly color blind individual.

      Now after a 4 month job hunt after being laid off (due to Obamacare) he finds a dream job perfectly suited for him with a healthy pay bump from what he was getting. He even has an internal reference to sweeten the deal.

      He later finds out they hired an incompetent black transgendered lesbian muslim because of work quotas. Let’s see how color blind he gets.

      Better yet, let every one of us, even people who’s family came here during WWII pay reparations to every person who checks the box as “Black” for “Reparations”, even if THEY don’t have any direct connection to slavery. Yeah, try to foster the love then.

      Of course what I deal with far to frequently are black people who openly and unabashedly hate white. They do it in mixed company, and professional settings without anybody speaking up. Man it gets REALLY tough.

        ” . . . ENCOURAGES racism.” Yup. There is a very small, very vocal group of black folks where I work who seem to have gotten their jobs as political favors or outright racial preference. They’re unskilled, they’re insecure, they’re intimidated by skilled white folks, and they play the race card like champs.

        I recall a browbeating I got from a black guy (who was genuinely qualified for his job) who seemed to not notice that he earned twice what I did, or that I was capable of doing a lot more work, but held back because I didn’t want to alienate the slackers and lay-abouts (many of them white, BTW), or get manipulated by them.

        I’m actually okay with some carefully drawn “affirmative action” (I hate the phrase) based on former Ohio Gov. Geo. Voinovich’s thinking. He saw that so many government jobs were filled by patronage, cronyism, family ties, etc. that black grievances had some legitimacy for him.

        There’s actually a middle- and upper-class black society that’s completely ignored by most Democrats because it doesn’t fit their plantation mentality and all that ideological mumbo-jumbo that goes with it.

    We should name the names.

    The DOJ expert witness is Charles Stewart III. He is the “Kenan Sahin Distinguished Professor of Political Science at MIT, where he has taught since 1985.”

    The NAACP expert also said blacks were too unsophisticated. “Dr. Barry Burden is a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin. He was also used in the challenges to Wisconsin’s voter ID law by those opposing the statute.”
