Ending Racism with or without Hillary
Every time Republican do anything to end racism...and this has been going on since 1854 when Republicans formed as a response to the Kansas Nebraska act. Missouri Democrat Sen. David Atchison announced that he would support the Nebraska proposal only if slaveholders were not banned from the new territory. Thus When Republicans formed in 1854 to end slavery they became the natural enemy of the democrati...and the same with Lincoln's proclamation, the 13th, 14th and 15th ammendments, segregation,civil rights, The democrat has always been against ending racism...even now lefty will tell you that people of color learn better when taught by people of color(see Progressive.org). SO when Rpublicans tell you racismi is a thing of the past...lefty will be sure to prove the Republican wrong....Just remember Racism is a thing of the past and lefty is living in the past.

Liberals don't ever want to end racism. It makes them relevant. Without pitting people against each other, liberals are useless. They need in-fighting and division in order to be able to champion a victim, even if they have to create the victim that they can champion through poor inner city schools and rampant government dependency.

Because of their authoritarian nature. It hurts their agenda any time they lose an issue they can use to force more rules and regulations on our (allegedly) free society.

The democrats have opposed freedom for so long..it is in their nature.

All you have to do to prove that racism is not a thing of the past is look what is happening throughout our country. White cops shooting unarmed blacks, frats singing racists songs, and the list goes on and on. And the real proof is how hard conservatives try and tell the lie that there is no longer racism in our country. The cons have learned the real truth about our country, that if you tell a lie long enough, those who want to believe the lie will do so. Just look at the people who are still birthers or who believe that Obama is a Muslim, or that the climate isn't changing . So go ahead a rail against those who point out the fact that there is still racism in our society, but it won't change the truth.

I don't believe there was ever a republican who has claimed that there is no racism in the country. If there is, they are an idiot. Racism, on an institutional level, has been eradicated, or in many cases, reversed.

Nobody says there isn't still racism in America. But the simple fact of the matter is that the US Constitution protects our right to be racist, if we so choose, as long as we do not exhibit racism in our dealings with our fellow (minority) citizens. So the singing of a racist song by frat boys would be protected by the first amendment. The Frat not hiring a qualified minority as, say, their cook, simply because of his race, would not be a protected action.

Bless you all
Remember which party ran the nation and was on the phone and giving orders to the guys holding those dog leashes and batons?

Liberals tend to forget that part... (it was Democrats). One of the reasons it seems our modern day Liberals assign racism to everyone else is because it appears they harbor their own deep rooted racism and want to blame others for their own shame.

All you are doing is keeping your history racism a part of the present...we(the USA) have no use for you. We have out grown you.

Way to focus on non-sense. Nobody ever talks about the 6,000 African American kids that are killed every year in this country not by the police but by other members of the African American Community. I don't see Al Sharpton, NBA Players, College Football Players etc making a statement about that.....????????

Frat guys singing racist songs......WOW WHAT A SHOCK...it must be huge national news to learn that Fraternities overwhelmingly are stocked with assholes........wow...it's like Watergate....o_O

If racism is a thing of the past, why are there profoundly different measurable results for different racial groups? For example, why is there a vast gap in poverty rates, median incomes, and unemployment levels for blacks versus whites? Is it your view that it's something genetic?

Anyway, there is a gigantic body of scientific research confirming ongoing racism in our society. These studies take all sorts of forms, but just to give you an example, researchers will send out a bunch of identical resumes to a random assortment of employers, where the only difference is that one set of resumes has names that sound white (Emily O'Brien, Connor James) and another has names more common in the black community (Lakisha Washington, Jamal Jones). What they found was that the resumes with white names got one callback from every 10 resumes, while those with black names got one for every 15, even though in all substantive ways the resumes were exactly identical, with only those names swapped out.

As another example, someone developed a web-based game that put players in the role of police officers encountering a bunch of white and black men holding various non-threatening objects that might be mistaken for guns. People shot quicker at black targets.

That's just the tip of the iceberg. Every time some researcher comes up with a clever way to control for other factors and just check for racism in our society, the results come back clearly indicating racism.

If someone were to take the position that Democrats were always more likely to be on the right side of history than Republicans, your argument would be an important rebuttal. But I've never heard anyone make such an argument, ever. I think it's pretty widely understood that the parties largely swapped roles through the course of the 20th century. Around 1900, the party of blacks, northerners, anti-racists, urbanites, supporters of big government, cosmopolitans, and the intelligentsia was the GOP, and the party of whites, southerners, racists, rural residents, states rightsers, nativists, and the know nothings were the Democrats. By around 2000, that had swapped. There was still a party that catered to whites, southerners, racists, rural residents, states rightsers, nativists, and know nothings, it just had the opposite label.

Liberals and progressives have consistently been on the right side of history, while conservatives and reactionaries have been on the wrong side. But one can't make that kind of sweeping statement about Democrats and Republicans.
