Thanks for making my case (i.e., that you are a racist) for me.
And this is a clear deflection from the fact that you cannot honestly claim you're post-racial and then first deny and then secondly justify catering to racial anger voting blocs by blaming The Man.
Thus you indirectly concede my point.
Now to the next one. What "record" are you referring to? Clearly the "record" you mean isn't really a record but rather liberal spin.
Here again, as I've stated, you're saying Democrats are post-racial yet racially pander, and that they do so and its effective, is somehow the fault of Republicans.
If you want to unify this country, you don't go out of your way to pander to Balkanizers. They don't have the interests of all of us at heart, they are lined up for their own, are ambivalent of others at the best. You can try to justify this behavior all you like by making the usual unqualified claims of majority oppression, but to anyone with half a brain, it isn't going to fly.
If you don't want domestic policy to be based on a jealousy-driven racial spoils system which contributes to domestic instability, then you need to mend your approach.
The truth is, as I said, that Obama used the post-racial garbage to woo the white vote, and then he turned around and did the usual white-as-oppressor narrative to appease the identity voting crowd.
The fault of you and yours is that you automatically presume the grudges these people have are justified on face value without bothering to investigate them.
Unfortunately there are those within the GOP that have attempted this to a degree, especially with Hispanics. Both parties have been dangling the amnesty carrot to appease them. It's disgusting and it needs to stop.
