Dick is the pacifier of hoes. ~ @Ange_Amene The Expulsion of racists and bigots from the Democratic party is a GOOD thing. It shows progress, growth and boundaries. The Democratic coalition should not include deplorable people. @chamblee54 A lady said to Adlai Stevenson, you have the support of every thinking person. Mr. Stevenson replied, thank you, but I need a majority to win A winning candidate needs the support of as many people as possible. You cannot tell people to go elsewhere bc you don’t like them @jessicadroeger OMFG – I believe you just told a WOC that we should allow racists to dictate the Dem Party platform. You need to take ALL the seats and shut your mouth. @chamblee54 No that is not what I said. I just said that Democrats should not be so picky about who they allow to vote for their candidates @jessicadroeger One more time – no one is preventing anyone from voting for Democrats (other than the GOP but that’s a different discussion). We’re saying no one is going to change the platform of the party or do anything to appease racists in order to get their votes. Get it? @chamblee54 You need to have a firm definition of what a racist is for this to work. How hard a line are you going to have? Ask 10 people what a racist is and you get 11 definitions. What is appeasing racists to one person is common sense alliance building to another @jessicadroeger Appeasing racists is not something I will ever do and for sure not in the name of “alliance building.” Here’s the on,y definition you need. @chamblee54 By that definition most of African America is racist @jessicadroeger Racism requires a combination of belief in the superiority of your own race AND the power to create policy/laws to benefit your own race. There is no such thing as reverse racism. Maybe the paper bag in your profile picture is meant to hide the white sheet over your face? @chamblee54 iow the first definition is not sufficient, and must be amended why do you assume I am white? You are blocked from following @Ange_Amene and viewing @Ange_Amene’s Tweets. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
