Your making an absurd RACIST claim. The least you can do is back it up.

Are you sure YOU'RE a U2 fan?

Don't let a video take away from the fact that plenty of the Guard, as well as Marines, Coast Guard, Navy, Army, and Air Force were fucking there.

what is racist about the fact that white men tend to vote Republican, and non-white people tend to vote Democratic?

Quote:
and for the GOP as well as they are now a party for old Southern white straight christian men, and he presided over the sinking of an American city.

and then you said the post was dumb.

Not enough, apparently. It's not their fault. I don't blame them for anything.

no, you'd be accurate.

people make their living analyzing voting trends. white christian men tend to vote Republican. young urban females tend to vote Democratic. urban black people tend to vote democratic.

i live in Washington DC, a city that's just under 60% black. it also has a large gay population, and a very young urban population. the city went upwards of 90% for both Kerry and for Obama. why? because the types of people who would choose to live in WDC are also the type of people who tend to vote for democrats.

this is all pretty basic stuff. Electoral Politics 101.

The only thing worse than calling someone a racist when they aren't is baiting someone else to call you a racist so that you can go off on them. Seriously, man, cut it out.

Maybe you should. You're not getting anywhere with any of this.
