Why Are Liberal Cities Bad for Blacks?
You can fault the Democrats all you want, Egnor, but what is the Republicans' record on the same issue? Are there great cities with Republican city halls that don't have segregation? Well, the article you cited links to a report on segregation. Birmingham, AL, is number 13 on the top-25 list. Memphis, TN, is number 20. Houston, TX, is number 21. Kansas city number 23. It looks like its not the Democrats that are the problem. Hoo
What are you babbling about, Toots? Memphis, Houston, and Birmingham are run by Democrats (don't know about KC). Memphis and Birmingham are run by black Democrats. Birmingham, like Detroit, is plagued by black Democrats that end up in jail.
Gramps, these are cities that aren't overwhelmingly populated by Democrats. Point taken, but I'd like to see an example of a shining city on a hill ran by Republicans and not racially segregated. I don't have high hopes for you presenting any information, of course. The question is for Egnor.Hoo
Wow Boggs, you’re probably ok for now, but if you had said a plague of Jews instead of a plague of blacks Egnor would be mad.-KW
You just don't like the information presented, junior. BTW, Birmingham and Memphis are overwhelmingly Democrat. Houston obviously has enough Democrats to elect a string of Democrat mayors.
Predictably, Gramps fails to mention one Republican city with no segregation problem. Hoo
I just don’t like the hypocrisy of those on the right who would call me anti-Semite for pointing out that all of the top executives in Hollywood are Jewish while undoubtedly remain mum or even defend your talking about a plague of black anything. Can you imagine how Egnor would have responded yesterday if I had said “a plague of Jewish executives”?Tomorrow you should call yourself “G Boggs, clueless casual racist”.-KW
Toots: "what is the Republicans' record on the same issue"Do your own homework, Toots. To imagine that a working neurosurgeon would take the time to investigate the tu quoque speculations (which don't even rise to the level of a fallacy) of an anonymous troll is absurd. Get over yourself, junior.
What are you babbling about, Popeye?
Your reference to Detroit being “plagued by black Democrats”. Your “black plague” racism. The fact that you are so casual when referring to a “plague” of black people you don’t even realize how racist you are being. Get a clue.-KW
Where did I say that, Popeye? I haven't even mentioned Detroit. But, for the record, I do agree. Detroit is, in fact, plagued by black Democrats. Just as Boulder is plagued by white Democrats (which is why I moved) and San Francisco is plagued by gay Democrats.If your head hasn't exploded yet, let me know. I can give many more examples of the Democrat plague should it be necessary.
Yeah, yeah, Gramps. Great excuses, not much in the way of an argument. Carry on. Hoo
Do your own homework, Toots.
I actually have, Gramps. If you wish to point out shining Republican cities on a hill, I'm all ears. I don't think you have any. Hoo
LOL. Gramps has been reduced to parroting his own one line. Say something original, old fart knocker, will ya? Hoo
Say it again, Gramps. I just love the sound of your creaky voice. Hoo
