    I would be ok with just not letting them have a president in charge with the same beliefs as them who promotes racism first of all. That would be a good start. Racism should be a crime that’s enforced.

    The many demographics reflect the rankings. Also, the IVY league States reflect the student to resident factor. DC reflects the political demographic too.

    Those stats can definitely be skewed to whatever suits your fancy.

    So then we start to enter into creating laws based on ones thoughts. Very sticky.
    I don't know where i would land on this. I supposed id need to study all the details and specifics, but at first thought, it brings the question,
    How do we differentiate from a ignorant idiotic moment, and a true belief?
    How do we say to family victim of a non racial murder, that victims life meant less based on the punishment, than a victim of a racial murder?


    Very sticky subject, but i do believe it warrants further discussion.
    Something has got to be done to stop racial hatred from being taught and passed down.

    I am not qualified to assess mental illness, I think Trump is a sociopath (not a mental illness) and that he appeals to the worst. To selfishness, resentment, meanness, bullying.

    I am quite willing to believe the unconditional love of an animal can help us accept other humans.

    Didn't you serve in the military? In military, regardless of what one thinks of a given war, you all have to live and work together.

    Certainly a mentally ill person can be racist, so can a non mentally ill person, and a mentally ill person can be non-racist. Separate issues.

    Just as saying all racists are sane lets lefty society off the hook for their history of ignoring, abusing, and underserving America's enormous population of mentally ill.

    In fact, most hardcore racists are either mentally ill or mentally retarded. And usually it's quite apparent. They have no friends. Family members have distanced themselves. Their lack of self esteem is totally on display.

    This is ignored by the left and media because the Deep State needs to keep racism alive to divide the masses.

    In the real world of America, most of us get along with each other fine, and judge others by their actions if they judge them at all.

    Failed premise.

    Most people who spend a large portion of their lives in a classroom miss a large portion of potential education they would have attained from the experience of spending the time instead as a responsible adult paying their way, raising a family, actually interacting with people from all walks of life, sharing and overcoming hardships and challenges...

    Rubes, greenhorns and pansies are what comes out of "higher education", pompous Jeopardy contestants who have no idea how to drive a stick shift, avoid hypothermia or clean a salmon.

    But whatever they do or don't become, they rarely go back home. Most end up in big cities, usually the one that they attended school in.

    If it's your contention they are programmed in school to be racist, I would agree somewhat but racism stems from a natural defense we are born with called distrust or wariness of different cultures and creatures. And it's most prevalent in big cities where cultures collide.

    Here's a news flash, it was Reagan that screwed over my mentally ill brother. They forced him to move out of my mother's house and out on the street where he couldn't get his pants on the right way, they were backward, and he had his shoes on the wrong feet. He was left sleeping on a sidewalk somewhere where he was robbed of all of his money which he needed for food. There were a lot of mentally ill in that sorry state of condition in those days.
