    Yes, boomer white dude is definitely racist.


    (Also, we all grew up in and live in a racist culture and are thus racist. Only question is whether we try and examine, own and mitigate our racism... or not.)

    He's racist the same way my mother is. Usually manages to cloak it when he remembers we're "not supposed to say that these days" and isn't actively oppressing. Occasionally has brainfarts like this that let you know what he's really thinking.

    But yeah, shouldn't be the Dem candidate. Warren or Harris.

    Shut the fuck up. Go find a corner where you can curl into the fetal position and cry those beta tears of white guilt until your racist soul is cleansed. Those of us that retain some level of common sense will carry on very nicely without you. :dayton:

    Looks like just a silly gaffe to me.

    Is Uncle Joe racist in the same way Trump is? No.
    Should he be president? Also no.

    Guess we should all just get over the labeling, then. :clyde:

    Biden isn't racist, and what he said wasn't proof of "racism." The spirit of what he said was that all kids are equal, all kids have equal potential for academic achievement, and underprivileged kids shouldn't be assumed to be less capable just because of their socioeconomic status.

    But this is 2019 America and we're in yet another election cycle. So the name of the game is to find "gotcha" moments where political opponents and clickbait desperate 24/7 media can intentionally mischaracterize what someone says to create a provocative, misleading headline.

    Not as racist as calling Obama "the first mainstream African American who is articulate."

    I've never claimed liberals couldn't be racist, pal.

    Not white nationalist ≠ not prone to racial biases.

    That's the opposite of what we've been saying. Not only are there lots of racists on the left, but there's also lots of racism in pretty much everyone's thinking. Next time you hear a word you don't know, get out a dictionary and look up 'pervasive' before you spend 20 years opposing the wrong thing.

    I'm a racist.

    The difference is I try not to be. Can't help but be a product of my environment.

    Biden is a racist, but he's trying to overcome this impediment. Trump revels in his.

    Does what Joe Biden said prove that he be a racist? Not necessarily.

    Does what he said prove that he has some deeply rooted prejudices? I’d say yes. I’ve felt this about Joe for years... over a decade.

    With that said, I take it all and weigh it against his body of work in the US Senate and later as VP to the first black president.

    I think he means well but from time to time he will succumb to some of his prejudices and will admit that he was wrong afterwards. I think we can do better for a presidential nominee.

    "That's the opposite of what we've been saying." - really? Define "we" then, because Republicans/conservatives = racism is pitched continuously in case you haven't noticed.

    there you go K (referring to post #21) typical comment from the left. The left has the moral high ground by default and the right should adjust their behavior in all cases, never the other way around.

    It's exactly what K said: the left for the most part at least try to move on and acknowledge that they've had bad ideas in the past. Trump ran an entire campaign kissing ass to those that are still stuck in the 1950s.

    I mean Dinner is living, breathing proof that liberals born and raised in the bluest state in the US can take in the same racist rhetoric from the Southerners he used to hate so much.

    whatever! :dayton: I just hope the left keeps up their same level of self delusion & confusion until November 2020. It doesn't seem to be letting up any time soon which is encouraging. :yes:
