Are the old bugaboos and fears of racism and sexism the Democrats used to gain votes finally?

Are the old bugaboos and fears of racism and sexism the Democrats used to gain votes finally? Topic: A researcher s world views
July 20, 2019 / By Laurelle
Question: ...dead? For decades the Democrats have promoted the idea that blacks and women were oppressed by white men, and that America was a horrible place for blacks and women to live because of racism and sexism. This has caused almost 90% of blacks and over half of women to vote Democratic at the cost of great tension and mistrust in America. Since Sen Obama has been chosen as the Democratic Presidential nominee, has a strong shot at the office, and has had great (and early) support from white voters; and since Gov Palin has been chosen as the Republican nominee for Vice President, is apparently more popular than Sen McCain, and has revitalized the Republican base, do these developments not show that America in NOT a place of repressive Racism and Sexism? What will the Democratic party do in the future to keep these two constituencies in line, since they must now realize that the America established by our founding fathers is not such a repressive, unfair, hostile place after all?

Most people was only able to get their information from the Newspapers and Network news (ABC, CBS, NBC). Do not believe that in the old days that newspapers and network news organizations was 'fair and balanced', because they were not. They just worked harder at trying to hide the fact that they supported the Democrats and were very liberal in their views. Because of this most American (of all ethnic groups) believed the lies Democrats and liberal told about Republicans being racist. They claimed it was Republicans that resisted the Civil Rights legislation in the Sixties when, in fact, it was the Democrats that fought President Johnson. The reason the legislation got passed was due to Republicans and some conservative Democrats voting for it. Democrats claimed Republicans were, or had been, members of the KKK when, in fact, it was Democrats like Robert Byrd, and other, that were active or past members of the KKK. Only since the mid 90's and the advent and easy access to the World Wide Web (www) which is now commonly referred to as the Internet (the Internet and www are different) has information become available to most Americans as to the truth about Democrats and their racist views and race baiting tactics. As each year goes past more old records are available on the www and Internet giving researchers and the average public access to the truth about the past. This is why the old media provider are fighting 'tooth and nail' to make conservative Bloggers, and any Blogger that is fair and balanced, to look bad so the truth doesn't get to the public. As all ethnic groups access the WWW and Internet and learn of the past the Democrats lose their base voters. The 'Base' of the Democrat Party is now the most leftist of the liberals in the Party. So, as people learn the truth the claims of 'racism' become less and less effective and people have less fear of being called a 'racist' because it is now similar to being called a 'redneck'.

As a BLACK WOMAN, let me assure you that racism and sexism are alive. The Democratic party did not need to scare me with them. I deal with racist, sexist people on a daily basis. I have been voting since I turned 18, in every local, state and federal election. With few exceptions, I have voted for Democrats. Not out of "fear" but because I usually support their policies more. I am wealthy, but the Republicans support and have party members that I detest. I know many Black Republicans and we share many of the same social, philosophical values. In my opinion, the Republicans use more scare tactics than the Democrats. They prey on the fears and imaginings of more people in varied ways than the Democrats ever did.

i've got observed this too. as an occasion, people see no situation with studying variations in intelligence between adult men and ladies, yet while it is composed of race it truly is a great taboo. maximum of this study is doubtful at perfect, yet yet people then pass around making assumptions approximately "women being better at multitasking" and "adult men having better particular reasoning". and people do look to tolerate sexist jokes a lot extra. while will people learn that sexism is undesirable too?

Yes absolutely! My husband's ex-wife has gotten him fired from THREE jobs in the past six years because she is harassing his employers so much. Because he keeps losing his jobs, he is getting further and further behind on child support. He is ordered to pay $2000 a month for 2 kids. In the state of GA, he is required to pay 65% of his income to her. So he has to work two full jobs in order to pay her and pay our rent. She is a millionaire, lives in a 1/2 million $ house, while we live in a 2 BR apt. Just THIS year, she has taken the kids to Rome (Italy) and Hawaii. She & her husband have also taken a trip to Vegas. My husband works 7 days a week to support her lifestyle (buying the kids $100 Aeropostle shirts) while we are struggling just to eat. I work to pay our bills : groceries, electric, cable, phone, etc. She put her kid up to asking me how much money I make (I refused to answer). She forced her kids to lie in court (I think God will punish her severely for that one). She outright lies on the stand and fake sobbing to get the Judge to feel sorry for her. My husband filed contempt of court on her for refusing him court ordered visitation (we live three miles from her). The Judge DENIED him visitation with HIS own children because he is behind on child support (because of her!) I don't know what to do! Even the Judge ruled unfairly! Father's apparently have NO RIGHTS to their OWN children in the state of Georgia!!! p.s. He didn't leave her - she left him. She wanted to move for her job and he didn't, so she divorced him and left the state. He moved to GA to be closer to his kids. Ex-wife is a flight attendant, and is home only 3 days a week. She refuses to let the kids stay with my husband when she is out of town. We cannot afford a lawyer because we can barely afford groceries.
