Look at the statement from MCConnell when he tapped Scott for the job. Scott is specifically chosen for the color of his skin, not his knowledge of the topic

Again, it’s Tom Cottons committee. Scott is not on it. He’s on Banking and others

But so what? They chose him and it went over pretty well. People with your world view see it as a bunch of evil men manipulating a poor dumb black guy, or a black guy who’s a liar and is playing this role for money or career opportunity. That’s the problem because that in itself is racist or at the very least points out that you really do believe that there is no possible legitimate reason that a black person could be a Republican. I know that I also think the worst of many Democrats so I am a little sympathetic but dang, I can remove my head from my rear end when push comes to shove…. can you?

There are legitimate reasons for this black guy to believe what he’s saying. He’s not a dummy and I think it’s safe to say that he’s heard all your evidence and still disagrees with you. If you can’t accept that then I see that as a big problem for you and is certainly not an objective view.



@JBear

its as if you have multiple personalities who neve speak with each other

You first post is, essentially, “America is not a fracist society because Tim Scott says so”

You later acknowledge (and I applaud you for your honesty) that he’s the spokesperson partly because HES BLACK . . in other words the GOP thinks his skin color BOLSTERS its view

That is, in and of itself, inherently racist. IT is, in essence, “are policies cannot be racist because we he have a black guy.”

No difrent than Candace owns posted here or poster here saying “I have a black friend or family member . . ”

IT IS IGNORING THE DATA . . let me repeat that

IGNORING THE ACTUAL DATA and trying to essentially shut down discussion of the issues because . . of course . . “if Candance Owens says I am not a racist, I aint!”

That’s almost a cartoon like common response from white people on race, but its also just the way the GOP operates, giving cover to its members so they never have to actually consider the issues

“everyone should have an ID to vote” — ignore data that shows how an ID issue is used to suppress votes

“any gun restriction is a slippery lope” — ignore data that shows diminished gun violence in restrictive states

“Russia is hoax” — ignore overwhelming evidence

“there is no systemic racism because a black guy says so” — he’s the only black senator in your party and the data is overwhelming
