20. Your explanation only makes YOU feel better, it is not based on fact.

Calling a statement a smear, that is actually fact is self serving and inaccurate.

It's a knee jerk reaction based political partisanship rather than fact and honesty.

Fact is NEVER a smear whether you like it or not. Just because it upsets you does not make it a smear, at least be honest.

I, as a person of color, think that ANYONE that could join the KKK at any time has hate issues toward minorities. So he "reinvented" himself. It takes a LOT of hate to ever join the kkk. You want to defend this and call me stating the fact that he WAS a kkk mrmber a smear? Fine, I'm guessing you are white and don't expect me to feel the same way or think you are any different than he is/was. You really, as a white person I'm sure (No insult towards whte people in general) , have no right to expect me to accept an ex kkk member. It's not a smear by any means. So you have a soft spot towards ex kkk members, I do not.

You think bigots/racists have never "reinvented themselves for political reasons? You think just because someone has a "D" beside their name they are automatically a racist? Sorry to burst your bubble, i lived for a while in california and saw plenty of "liberal" racists.

If I were in the US i would support democrats (well the true liberal ones anyway) but I am issue oriented (for example against war) over political polarization any day just to be able to live with myself.

I do not mean to offend a whole race by my statement that I am really tired of *SOME* white people telling me who and what is offensive or racist to me as a person of color. I am not a child or have the same experiences as you. Again, I am not trying to be offensive to all white people.
