The Democratic Party has a notoriously masochistic relationship with its voting base.

It beats them up and then it gaslights them

by hugging them and telling them that it was really the mean Republicans who punched them in the face. When African-American unemployment rates rise, the workers who can’t find jobs because of all the brand new DREAMERs won’t blame the White House, they’ll blame the evil Republicans for income inequality, assuming Sharpton manages to read the term correctly from his MSNBC teleprompter.

Your Say

Again, this says a great deal more about the voters than it does the party. The Democrat party could come up with any scheme it wants, but unless the voters are dumb and credulous enough to go along with it - in short, unless their base is a pack of fools - it won't work.

So the problem is the voting base. Blacks are allowing themselves to be too easily manipulated.

Certainly this is about deflecting anger. Blacks know they are in miserable shape in America. Unemployment in double digits, food and energy prices rising, malaise and disappointment is widespread. One of "theirs" was in office, things would be different - and they were. They got worse. But that's not what they expected.

So they are faced with two choices: blame the Democrats in charge, the leaders that pushed them in this direction, and the president... or blame whitey, somehow.

Choice A means ultimately that they are to blame for believing the lies and voting for these bozos. Choice B makes no rational sense but feels more fulfilling.

And when they stand in the burnt out ruins of their own neighborhoods they burned and destroyed, amid the shattered glass of the shop windows they looted and drove away, who do you think they will blame for it all? Whitey. Republicans. Conservatives. Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, the eevil white man.

Its that or the man in the mirror. And none of us like that hard truth.

There isn't a mirror left to reflect their image-they shattered all them. Rage, inchoate rage has only one outlet. That is beating one's head against a brick wall. There isn't anyone else around to blame

Blame Whitey? Only the Limp Willie Whiteys say they give a damn and they live in gated communities where nothing stinks. Barking at the moon and eating turds is all that's left. Stay in the ghettos and burn them to the ground. Maybe then they'll head up to Scarsdale or Chevy Chase, Georgetown or Darien to confront the gated crowd.

That would make great 11 o'clock tape.

But coming out to the hinterlands after "American Whitey" will get the shot, buried and forgotten.

I'm not bothered when intentionally stupid people are taken advantage of, in fact, I find it endlessly humorous.

Laziness and greed.
They do nothing and expect everything.
Just like whiney little kids.

What they need is some of Chas's good hard punches in the face, repeatedly, until they clean up their acts.

ghost, I am afraid they are past the point where redemption is possible.

They will be met with more people that think like this:
I am tired of fooling around, he said. As for the rights of anyone, tell your people they can go fuck themselves.

Ugly ol' White Folks that carry 30-30s instead of iPhones.

Shoot on sight; the lines are clearly drawn from a shithole like Ferguson to NYC and any other large urban area.
We all know it will come to this and last man standing won't be no nappy-headed mofos, uh uh.

People of Color, I call 'em Blacks, they can't do the math:

White 223,553,265 72.4 %

African American 38,929,319 12.6 %

Hispanic or Latino 50,477,594 16.4 %

"When Blacks riot, neighborhoods burn. When Whites riot, continents burn."

Bring it Jim, bring it.
