On Tim Scott, he is form Charleston City Council.

Why does that matter? One of the most norotiosu white/black police cop shooting, the Walter Scott case . HE KNOWS IT WELL

On top of that, he was actually INVOVED DIRECTLY . . . directly . . in a DOJ Voting Rights Acts case where he defended the allegedly racist voting process by saying, in essence, that black people are still adequately represented by white people. He claime dthta he wa proof of that in reverse because he was black and voted into the counsel by a haevily white constituency

you know what hapened in that case?

the DOJ won

you know why?

because the black people in the district HAD NOT VOTED FOR HIM (ie he would not have bene their choice and here he was WORKING AGAINST THEM. Proof of the DOJ’s point

***************************

who is to say what is in the guy’s heart (eg is he Candace Owens? who knows?), but its simply UNDENIABLE . . undeniable . . that his views are NOT representative of the black community at all

If he runs back then as a Dem he probably doesnt get elected. he was elected . . in SOUTH CAROLINA . . almost exclusively by white voters. There’s probably something to that JUST AS IT IS NOT AN ACCIDENT that he is front and center on this issue

First it was proof that republicans were racist that they didn’t vote for black candidates now it’s proof that that they do.

Anyway again you are grouping people based on race. He can’t represent black people because he’s a Republican. You can balk at that but it’s the single biggest issue I have with Democrats on Race. There are a lot of Black Republicans and I think it’s insulting to say that they can’t represent black people if they aren’t Democrats.

It’s insulting to all Black people even those who are Democrats. A black person can’t be for smaller government? Pro business? lower taxes? A black person has to see government handouts in black communities as some sort of boon for the community? A lot of people disagree and many of them are black or brown.

I posted a long time ago about I guy I heard speak who goes by the name of Ishmael Hernandez. He’s the founder of a charity called the Freedom and Virtue institute. They essentially go into schools in bad neighborhoods and set up “self reliance clubs”. Not everyone sees the world the way you do Karma. This guy believes that those handouts help to enslave the people in those poor communities and many others think the same thing.

Oh but he’s not representative of the group “black people” because most of them vote for Democrats? It’s just an insulting viewpoint. Things are never going to get any better in this country until Democrats get the crap beat out of them on this issue. I’d love to see somebody like Tim Scott get the Republican nomination. I don’t agree with him on everything but this race distinction bs has got to end. We are all Americans who all say we want equality. Democrats are not giving anyone equality they are sewing division to prop up their political party.
