Just wish that the BP would unite many of the illegals here from south of the border with their mothers that are still in their country of origin.

“Yes We Can’ came from a 1987 poem where the term ‘African American’ was first invented.
Before that poem the term ‘African American’ never existed. That’s where 0bama and crew got ‘Yes We Can’. It was to divide blacks and whites and to keep blacks from calling themselves just ‘Americans’. ”
African-American (adj.) Look up African-American at Dictionary.com
there are isolated instances from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but the modern use is a re-invention first attested 1969 (in reference to the African-American Teachers Association) which became the preferred term in some circles for “U.S. black” (noun or adjective) by the late 1980s. Mencken, 1921, reports Aframerican “is now very commonly used in the Negro press.” Afro-American is attested in 1853, in freemen’s publications in Canada. Africo-American (1817 as a noun, 1826 as an adjective) was common in abolitionist and colonization society writings.

“Caucasoid, *******, and mongoloid”
No there is only one race… Most people don’t use those terms anymore (they actually come form a time when eugenicists had like five categories for races). That’s why one of them is even ‘censored’ by the blaze LOL.

“COlor-blind” is apparently now considered racist by progressives.
I’m sure the media will start attacking that soon enough.

““I admire Thomas Jefferson, his words and his leadership — and I deplore his un-repentant slave holding. I admire Margaret Sanger being a pioneer and trying to empower women to have some control over their bodies — and I deplore the statements you have referenced. That is the way we often are when we look at flawed human beings. There are things we admire, and things that we deplore.”-Hillary Rodham Clinton

Take it out for a test spin on the ocean, filled with animals, and scientifically see how well it floats.
Take out the animals and install the creationist zealots on this site; two by two ...
If their god allows them all to,perish, then we'll have learned something.

Everyone was a ‘racist’ at that time by today’s standards. Most people thought blacks were inferior…
The question was more about how they should be treated though, even as “inferiors”.
Lincoln also argued they should be free, and treated with dignity, lest europeans found themselves also owned as ‘slaved’. The argument being if someone thinks they have the right to own slaves, then why can’t someone also say they have the right to own europeans as slaves as well.
Fragments on Slavery
April 1, 1854
If A. can prove, however conclusively, that he may, of right, enslave B.—why may not B. snatch the same argument, and prove equally, that he may enslave A?—
You say A. is white, and B. is black. It is color, then; the lighter, having the right to enslave the darker? Take care. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with a fairer skin than your own.
You do not mean color exactly? You mean the whites are intellectually the superiors of the blacks, and, therefore have the right to enslave them? Take care again. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with an intellect superior to your own.
But, say you, it is a question of interest; and, if you can make it your interest; you have the right to enslave another. Very well. And if he can make it his interest, he has the right to enslave you.

Most of the time these statues are actually ‘donated’, no tax money involved, and maintaned by a third party organization… In this case the Friends of Jefferson David it seems.

Keep in mind it only says one of the guys in there was for drug abuse. Another was in tehre for asssaulting an officer.
The point is that none of them went for the gun, and none of them tried to further escape.

Can’t say hupersons, that has ‘son’ in it….
Cant’ say she cause it has ‘he’ in it.
Can’t say her because it has ‘he’ in it…
Can’t say female because it has ‘male’ in it.

Actually if If you read documents of the while chamberlains treaty appears ill conceived and naive, it may have actually given Britain enough time to prepare defenses. Germany was. Ore than ready with resources to take on Britian at the time, unfortunate series liberal government had gutted Britain’s defenses after the first world war. Chamberlain actually did start increasing defenses after the treaty believing Hitler couldn’t be trusted, before Churchill took over. But had they declared war on Germany then or Germany declared war at the time of the treaty, it actually had superior forced and weapons that it could have knocked Britain out much earlier in the game, and possibly had Russia’s help at that point..

Perhaps you passed up the Kool-Aid to drink the Flavor-Aid instead.

Actually,the phrase goes back to William Rogers of Rhode Island… It was quoted by many of the founders. That letter by Jefferson wasn’t the only time, and probably the ingest person to invoke it was Madison. Who used it when he vetoed Comgress attempt to “establish” episcopalian as the National Religion.

If Trump truly has thick skin, why should he or anyone else care what people say about him?
If trump can mock someone with a disability, and doesn’t care… Then why should he care if someone mocks his skin ‘disabilities/abilities/deficiencies’?
