  • Not so hidden racism

    After giving a response speech to Bidens speech before an empty session of congress, Tim Scott was met with cries of "uncle tim".

    "Uncle tim" is a play on the racial slur uncle tom.

    It trended on Twitter for half a day before being censored. MSNBC defended the slur.

      This is what real systemic racism looks like.
      Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
      But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
      Than a fool in the eyes of God


      From "Fools Gold" by Petra

        But liberals can get away with it - over and over and over.

          I was on another forum, and someone on the right side of that forum mentioned something about chinese doctors. It was something supportive of Trump.

          A poster on the left side responded

          "I'm not sure how much I would trust doctors who believe Rhino horns are a way to improve your manhood."

          He was called on using a stereotype to assume someone was a bad doctor based on nothing than their heritage.

            Yeah, amazingly, doctors of foreign origin seem to be targets of ridicule here, when their cultures often are FAR more focused on education, success, detail, etc.

              I won't tell you who was there defending that poster with pedantic games.

                  The left has a long history of using racial smears against minorities -- particularly blacks -- who dare to not kiss the ring of their white betters who are trying so hard at spending other people's money to help those who aren't as smart as they are.

                    Who was it (a black man) who used to refer to this as "master fussin at another slave who wandered off the plantation"? I'm thinking it was the late great Walter Williams.

                      I think everyone knows that the most racist element of our society is on the Left. Except for those on the Left who are in denial.

                      Like China Biden. I like how he squirms around and digs his hole deeper.

                        If you see racists behind every bush and tree - you're probably a racist.

                          Not all that long ago virtually any time anyone said something "derogatory" about gays the left would insinuate that person was probably a closeted gay and full of self-loathing.

                          That tactic has been scraped because the left can no longer use calling someone gay as an insult, but maybe we can still apply the same logic here. You know, virtually any time someone calls something outside a klan meeting racist we should dismiss them as a closeted racist full of self-loathing.

                            It's funny. I've often said that what you use as insults tells people what you see as "lesser".

                              Nothing new there. Most of the most racist people I have ever met IRL have been Democrats.
