I was being facetious gbaji. Joph made no mention to the fact that this quote was attributed to a "R" - you did. In fact you imply that one has to cherry pick quotes to find those specifically spoken by a "R".


I'm 99.99999% positive that had the statement been made by a Democrat, it would not have been reported, Joph would never have heard about it, and if he had, he would not have chosen to post it. The (R) was very deliberate. And it's why the original article was written, why it was quoted and repeated by another source, and why Joph decided to post it. You are incredibly naive if you haven't noticed the disparity between reporting of racism based on party affiliation.

That quote, what it says, is not really inclusive or exclusive of a political party. It's a stupid statement. You're stupid to point out that the stupid quote is from a member of your political party.


Then why include the political party then? Why not just leave off the R? You aren't seriously suggesting that the intent of the quote was to point out that it was a Republican who made it. Cause that would be really naive. Did anyone miss that the quote was from a Republican? Honestly?


It's not like democrats don't say racist things. Guess who said this:

Quote:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy... I mean, that's a storybook, man."


Ever heard that reported on a mainstream media site? Much less repeated? Or posted?

All men quotes. By your logic that proves my original point. Still I do recall hearing about Biden words. You can watch it all on you tube on a pretty in-depth story aired by NBC back in the day.

gbaji, perhaps you're not really absorbing mainstream media.
