So far all I've seen is they can't follow hyperlinks, can't properly post videos, and mimic fake news.

IOW, typical banana republicans.

Morality must be based on an understanding of cause and effect and the effect of social injustice and prejudice is very bad, so it is not a liberal choice. Failure to understand this leads to a police state, the opposite of what a liberal wants. Our liberty begins with making moral choices.

Our decision must be based on principles and cause and effect, not what we think of others. Education for democracy would end the racist issues because it would lead to a higher standard of morality.
Forget morality. Morality and morals are moving targets. They are very much situational. EVERYBODY practices some version "moral relativism". What is right and wrong can change places depending on the situation.

What we need are ETHICS !!! If every one practiced the golden rule and applied it to every situation, we would have very few issues.

When dealing with ignorant people it is necessary to apply authority over the people. To resolve the problem with authority over the people, it is necessary to educate them. When they are well educated, that authority over them should no longer be necessary.

When we are capable of speaking about democracy and its principles and the set of American values that were once a part of education, there will be no need to talk about racism because racism is not scientifically supported, and it is not compatible with the ideals of modern age democracy.

My great-grandson who is now living with me has dark skin and black kinky hair. That means he looks different from the rest of the family. Other than looking different, what makes him different from the rest of the family that is not African-American? What in any way makes him African or even connects him to slavery? Africa is full of White people, so Africans can be Black or White. People with dark skin who migrate here from any of the several nations with dark-skinned people are not connected to slavery. Anyone born in America who knows no other culture is American. Come on, how can we maintain racism without being very narrow-minded and not considering all the complexities?

Trying to level the playing field is NOT patronizing. It is not about feeling superior or making the black community feel INFERIOR.

Every American should support making voting easier because we want every American to vote. That includes minorities, elderly, those with disabilities, low-income voters, and those without transportation. Why is this so hard to understand? IF EVEN ONE American can't get a proper ID it's one too many.

What is the RW afraid of? I'll tell you. Most minorities vote straight Dem. It seems clear to me that the easiest way to win elections is to make voting difficult. Then tell everyone who will listen that the Democrats are racists KKK members who PATRONIZE or condescend to racial minorities.

I can never forget morals because our democracy and liberty are impossible without morals and moral people. The Spirit of America is morale, that high spirited feeling we have when we believe we are doing the right thing. Right now the biggest problem in the US is we have destroyed our morale. I think your position on morals is very destructive to our morale, so I must argue against it.

Why do you call the moral of the golden rule an ethic instead of a moral? I call it a moral because it is a matter of cause and effect and for anything to go well, we must understand cause and effect.

Every case of a dead person voting I have ever read about has been for a Republican. I have never read a news story about an illegal or a felony proscribed from voting having done so for either party.

But let the whining continue.
