To invite Americans to place such emphasis on race and the various grievances and privileges that flow from it is to sow division as effectively as any racist trope about immigrants or minorities.

...Ms. Harris has evidently now found it in her heart to forgive Mr. Biden, ... Only a cynic would suggest her motives stem from anything other than a belated and welcome recognition of the power of togetherness.

...It seems that the university founded by one of the most viciously cruel 17th-century slave owners has been trying to expiate its original sin in part by favoring candidates from certain ethnic backgrounds over those from others.

If you believe Yale and its ideological soul mates in the media, the case is wholly without merit. In a masterful piece of willful self-deception, the journalistic equivalent of putting a telescope to a blind eye

There are other hints that the elevation of race-consciousness is having some unintended political consequences. Even as President Trump continues to lag Mr. Biden in the opinion polls, his support among Hispanics has risen to about one third of that ethnic group. There are a number of reasons for this, but it seems possible that someHispanic voters may be viewing with caution the Democratic Party’s apparent identification with black lives above others.

Let em ponder......why didnt Obama or Clinton do it? (snx)

The Dangerous Consequences of Putting Race First


It’s been the exact opposite for Dems. Instead of being “dangerous”’, it’s been a friggin’ gold mine of political power in certain parts of the country. Hell, if the idiots could put together a ticket that didn’t’ have a semi-senile, child-fondler at the top of the ticket, they’d have a good chance of winning the White House.
