The idea that white males are how the GOP wins is false a killions times over the GOP wins with some white women who vote DEM when their reproductive rights are under attack but as in two years ago it is often white females(I want my country back)who swing their vote to the GOP. And frankly their reasons are a lot more pathetic and vile than white males as far as I am concern. When the issue is immigrant rights, gay rights black unemployment etc they are less interested? but when their reproductive rights matter suddenly they vote DEM? respectfully I don't find that acceptable.
White males are not the heart of evil only LOL. White males including FDR, Johnson at his best, Clinton, etc have not only been the heart of the DEM party build the DEM party voted against their own interest BUT pushed for rights for blacks women gays immigrants etc. And the ones who did so do not deserve to be painted with the same brush as the evil ones. The idea that white women were always out there pushing civil rights while all white men were screaming no is sadly false. Far from, from Boston(where the most racist anti black push was lead by a white female catholic) to the South, there have been plenty of white males on the right side of history more so than their female counterparts who for years even fought to keep black women and women of color out of the feminist power structure to be fair. Dear Lord I am defending white males sigh.
Every white male I know- age 76, 73, 69, 60, 59, 45, 39, 40, 56, are all voting Obama the only anti Obama white male I know is a Catholic old and voting abortion. The white males I know risked their lives to oppose NAM resented young black men being sent to die. Went to the South with the free riders, were arrest in places like Mississippi, worked as lawyers at Wounded Knee and were darn near kill. Today at least 3 in that group can't afford to retire have no money to speak of but spent a lifetime working for civil rights and don't feel as if their country is being stolen from them. Just because we all trend to shut out their voice does not mean they aren't out there and that their value in building this party and helping in civil rights etc(greater than their female counter parts)shouldn't be acknowledge at times. The media likes to pretend such males do not exist yes they do as far back as John brown and thank goodness this country had them.
Damn I just defended white males. sigh.
I think it's the implication that not winning them is an Obama problem. - K_SingingASong - 04-Nov-2012 5:04 PM
