Snokums, I don't agree with your assessment of ops statement ut your statement is crazy. Even if you believe what you said ,ops statement can ONLY represent what he thinks. How do you say that his statement would translate to be"proof positive that America has not moved forward on race issues at all" OPs is only one person there is no way even you can say that his statement represents all of America. These kind of comments make you appear foolish and a total kneejerk reactionary democrat. Youhave blinded your judgement with your blatant hatred of republicans or for that matter anyone who disagrees with you.
