So question to the bolded. You don't think the political side with literal nazis running for office, "race realists", and voter ID rulings that have been ruled by a court of law to be racist is the side that's keeping racism alive? What political leanings do you think the guys who marched and shouted about "jews will not replace us" have? Maybe I missed the part where they yelled "jews will not replace us..... also I really think we need to consider sensible gun control and the benefits of universal health care?"

Is your argument that if the left stopped being so mean to Kanye that all the things above would go away naturally?

Excuse my ignorance as a non-American but what exactly is racist about voter ID laws? Like i said in another thread the other day where i am from if you can't show ID then no voting for you. You should be obligated to prove that you are who you say you are when doing something as important as voting

In the case I am referencing republican lawmakers asked for voter information by race and then made laws that disallowed the kind of ID that black people use and closed polling centers in places that were mostly black. So yeah, that voter ID law was racist. It's quite possible that it was done solely from a rational of "they don't vote for us" but the end result is still racist and the courts agree.
