Conservatives certainly don't help. Most fail to recognize the basic existence of redlining in the USA, to the detriment of nonwhite people, particularly black people.
Redlining takes many more forms than the traditional form for which it is named: some online stores, for example, will use your IP to determine if you live in a poor (often black) neighborhood, and charge higher prices if you do.
so far 3/3 regular liberals here calling this false.... yet the right keeps beating the drum on the false claim of victimization
Yes and all liberals are sexist towards men.... *eyeroll*
But like we said, you can apply that same logic to any group. It isn't helpful saying every group is racist. The problem isn't the group, it's humans as a whole.
And since we agree that not all conservatives are racist, it is therefore incorrect to say that "conservatives are racist" because some of the group are not.
Using Cartesian logic you can technically infer that they (yet, not as a whole) are racist.
Conservatives are people = C
Some people are racist = PR
Some conservatives are racist
_____ = Cx(R)
It's basic human nature to fear and distrust people who are different from you. It is in virtually all cultures in all countries. it is not a conservative or a liberal thing.
The conservatives recently have made more of an issue of it as a way to stoke fear. Such as mexicans are rapists, criminals are streaming across the border, The convoys are invading etc. This messaging has lead more of the blatant racists to gravitate to the conservative sphere. Not because they actually believe in conservatism, but because that is where racist messaging is more acceptable.
So saying conservatives are racists isn't really true, or at the very least it is misleading.
sorry, conservative propaganda should be alt right propaganda... although the alt right is currently taking over main stream conservatism.
no, that is conservative propaganda of what liberals think. I'm pretty damn liberal and if you look at my posts I'm arguing against this assumption.
Um... no?? That is a liberal/democrat's strawman of conservatism
the idea of conservatism is that the rich are superior to the poor, and minorities. so yeah
so no other people hate each other when white people arent involved?
racism start with white people. America was a native land, they are peaceful people. what white people did is slaughter them and take their land for granted and use Chinese immigrants to mine sliver
conservatives have done more to fight racism than any other party, the first black congressmen senator Supreme court justice etc. were all conservatives.
that is wrong. all people are racist. many black people are racists to whites, they just dont have the power dynamic to enforce it on a large scale. many groups of Hispanics are racist to each other. same goes for asians. native Americans may also hate white people.
although their (counter) racism comes from historically justified reasons, (unlike white people's racism towards native Americans and blacks), it doesnt justify them bringing their general stereotypes onto random white individuals who may not embody this stereotypes at all. like a poor white person moving to a native american or black area and shouldering the burden of the communities frustrations.
the people are just as racist. the difference is there are certain groups in the conservative ranks that see racism as a priority world view that requires active action, legislation, and enforcement. rather than second hand stereotypes in the background of their world view.
I think your premise is worded wrong. I'd argue that while racists are generally conservatives, not all conservatives are racists.
