In the Antebellum South, and on up until about the 1950’s, the Democratic party often took the tack that blacks and other minorities were sub-humans and could not be trusted with political power. Some Republicans took this point of view as well, but the Republicans used to be of the mindset that at least everyone had the right to try and fail, or maybe even succeed. Democrats on the other hand, just changed the lines of their fully racist and extremely patronizing attack, i.e., instead of saying now that blacks, hispanics, asians, and other minority groups are sub human, have no true intellectual ability and should be kept minimalized (kept in ghettos), they now say that white America should give the poor, underachieving minorities special privilieges to help give them a leg up because those same aren’t as intellectually capable as white people. And that if those poor niggers, spics, gooks, and redskins will vote the way the Democrats want them to vote, then they can all have pie in the sky, free money (Matthew Lesko will be your personal coach on that), and that America will become an immediate utopia.
In other words, the Democrats still think that minorities need to be controlled and used and that they aren’t able to handle being full fledged members of society. The conservative approach is, that everybody has the same rights and those rights are to be protected fiercely for everyone. All citizens will have the right to try and pursue life, liberty, and success. It doesn’t guarantee that your efforts will be rewarded or that you will even break even, just that you have the right to try (don’t say, there is no try, just do or do not, I will kick you in the nuts you fucking ‘tardo). Unfortunately, I don’t think that the Republicans still feel that way. It seems like that they have moved away from trying to study a problem, take the necessary steps to solve any issues that come up and are now trying to be liked by everyone. Guess what, you can’t be everything to everyone, some times you are going to piss someone off simply because you exist. Do your best, try to be fair and fuck everyone who says you are a racist.
