there will be people in parts of pakistan that resemble people in india more than others within their own country.

there can be some differences between bengali and punjabi . there are indians who are more ethnically east asian .

many indians think i'm from the south though i'm from an area closer to pakistan .

No - he didn't.


When one uses a visible black woman to make one's point - one should be on point.

That would be like me screwing up Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep who have both made waves in the past week for their statements on Feminism, Equal Pay, etc. etc.

It was an HONEST mistake from the poster and we black women -

Well we are used to being confused.

This is America. It's our reality.

You don't have to like it.

You can accept it.

It doesn't impact you.

But when we (1Strong, myself, any other black person) points out the obvious -


Please don't chastise us.


For someone (the OP) who chose to wag his finger and speak to us like imbeciles - he kind of had it coming . . . having his 'innocent who me' mistake called out.

Right?

one can't look pakistan as opposed to indian because those have nothing to do with race/ethnicity etc. it was a British creation based on politics/religion and resulted in people from both sides moving to the other based on religion/politics and not ethnicity. at one point maybe less than 10 years ago the leader of india was born in what is today pakistan and the leader of pakistan in what is today india.

and what that has to do with mixing up 2 very different black women i don't know either.

Please, change all your passwords on any account you access. Especially your financial accounts.

I know I'm overly cautious, but usually you get those messages when someone has tried to "social engineer" you (not hack - the media calls it all a "hack," but it's not. Social engineering is when someone tries to guess you password based on who you are - like Sarah Palin's yahoo account. Dude guessed her password.).

took everybody's mind off Jennifer Flowers. So he left a lifelong bad taste in my mouth by his action. Just like Hillary's vote to kill 1,000,000 innocent Iraqis - the wishes and feelings of us common people mean nothing to the likes of them.

The same people going back to BILL CLINTON'S record were aghast that someone would quote the "POS Used Car salesman" former-poster, and rec'd the 8 year old "Steve said HRC was a liar" post.

Nothing comparable in Vermont.

74. He voted for the crime bill because of the Violence Against Women Act and ban on assault weapons:

In 1994, however, Sanders voted in favor of the final version of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, a bill that expanded the federal death penalty. Sanders had voted for an amendment to the bill that would have replaced all federal death sentences with life in prison. Even though the amendment failed, Sanders still voted for the larger crime bill.

A spokesman for Sanders said he voted for the bill "because it included the Violence Against Women Act and the ban on certain assault weapons."

Sanders reiterated his opposition to capital punishment in 2015. "I just dont think the state itself, whether its the state government or federal government, should be in the business of killing people," he said on a radio show.

249. As I asked the other poster, would you vote for Ben Carson or Clarence Thomas?

Taking it into consideration is one thing, voting based on it is another. I think there's a difference there and I'm sure Sanders meant the latter since he's well aware of the issues PoC face every day, though I haven't heard the quote in context.

One of the things that made me so happy to vote for Obama and shed a tear when he won was that he was AA, so I get it maybe to 1/1,000,000 of a degree that you do since I'm not a PoC, but I wouldn't have felt that way if it were Ben Carson of course.

And as I mentioned, I wouldn't vote for someone just because they are a woman. If Elizabeth Warren ran I would vote for her in a second and perhaps over Sanders, but I would have to really look at that. I wouldn't do it automatically just because she is a woman.

http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2014/11/19/365024592/sen-bernie-sanders-on-how-democrats-lost-white-voters

On African-American support for Democrats

Well, here's what you got. What you got is an African-American president, and the African-American community is very, very proud that this country has overcome racism and voted for him for president. And that's kind of natural. You've got a situation where the Republican Party has been strongly anti-immigration, and you've got a Hispanic community which is looking to the Democrats for help.

But that's not important. You should not be basing your politics based on your color. What you should be basing your politics on is, how is your family doing? ... In the last election, in state after state, you had an abysmally low vote for the Democrats among white, working-class people. And I think the reason for that is that the Democrats have not made it clear that they are prepared to stand with the working-class people of this country, take on the big money interests. I think the key issue that we have to focus on, and I know people are uncomfortable about talking about it, is the role of the billionaire class in American society.

and has fought for equal rights for all for the entirety of his career. How much more overt can you get?

Can people please stop participating in the continuous attempts to frame him as weak on civil rights/social justice/whatever you want to call it. It's just not true. There's a decades long record to show it.

Hillary was worse to BLM than Bernie. Hillary said in the debate she "represented Wall Street" as a senator from NY. No one who is fighting for Wall Street has the best interest of the black community at heart. It's not possible to represent Wall Street and be fighting for the people. She is supposed to represent the people, not banks.

That tells me that people are politicizing this to try to make Sanders look bad. She also "represented Wall Street" (her words in the debate) while a senator of NY, so I'm not impressed with that. When she stops worrying about Wall Street and really does fight for the people I might take that point.

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Hateful, divisive group attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Oct 16, 2015, 01:08 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I think some of the language throughout the many posts are divisive. There seems to be much emotion being expressed, some of it very negative. This post is not out of the ordinary of what little else I have read. Emotions seem to run high on this issue and many other issues around this primary season. I confess to being frustrated overall, but this post did not stand out to me, so I, personally, would leave it alone.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Yawn.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This alert seems a bit personal to me.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: C'mon, this goes too far. Everyone I know is gonna vote for the Democrat in 2016 no matter who it is.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No, it happens to be a fact. Not "hateful" at all. Oh, the irony of a Bernie supporter complaining about "divisive". Really?

21. They're all bloody politicians even the Hope and Change one.

Same old shit going on just a different day.

I bought Hope and Change and actually thought black folks would get some relief from one of our own but guess what?

Nope.

So.....at least Sanders was walking the walk for whatever reasons why he felt it was the right thing to do.

Maybe there's room for a little more Hope and some actual Change.

I know you weren't talking to a Sanders supporter but I am black and I felt the need to put my 2 cents in the pot.

28. Stuff: Most people on welfare are not black, most black people are not on welfare.

 

DADT was an improvement upon the previous shit, a compromised step forward after years of nothing but persecution. The leading issue of the day was not marriage rights but the fight against AIDS which had been criminally neglected by his Republican predecessors who stood by while tens of thousands died and did absolutely nothing. You, dear OP, have often defended those who voted for those genocidal policies enforced by cackling right wing bigots. I can link to your screed 'so now Reagan voters were anti gay?!?!?!' which you posted when you wanted us all to vote for Reagan supporting enemies of minority communities you feel are now 'reformed'. Cross party straight folks need to cut out the fucking lectures.

Most LGBT I know support Bernie, but this is exactly the sort of shit that can make that turn on a dime. Don't make the room uncomfortable for minority persons, WillyT. You have a habit of that and it needs to cease. Do you want links to your various bullshit lectures? Cut it the fuck out you straight white creator of division.

You live in the Bay Area, go ask LGBT and African Americans these questions live in the way you do it here, see how it flies. I dare you.

vanished into the mists after a few gestures of support around the Briggs amendment 'wussed out'. The LGBT movement doubled down, got far more radicalized and engaged in the most aggressive activism this country had seen since the 60's. And you, WillyT, in the Bay Area, could have been a supporter and participant is some of the most moving and important actions in the political history of California and the United States. But apparently you did not even notice what was going on around you:

1990:
We were fraught, frustrated, enraged, and with very little hope. But we were also determined, and with all of us together there was a feeling of strength and even festivity.

Journalist Tim Kingston is telling me over the phone what it felt like to be in San Francisco from June 20-24 in 1990, when the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) staged historic protests during the Sixth International Conference on AIDS.
http://www.48hills.org/2015/06/16/the-week-act-up-shut-sf-down/

147. Those who believe *that* show themselves pathetically ignorant of history.

Marriage was largely polygynous through much of human history--including biblical times. It has been polyandrous in a few places, too. Even today polygyny is entirely acceptable in many places (e.g., America's buddy country Saudi Arabia). But one man/one woman marriages have been the norm only for a relatively short time, and even at that, not universally.

Saying that was either being ignorant or--more likely--a result of political calculation. I believe that Obama rejected marriage equality until he "evolved" solely because of political expediency. I don't know about the Clintons, but I suspect political expediency there, too. They knew, as did Obama, that the country as a whole wasn't there yet. Maybe they could have shown more leadership on the issue, but maybe doing so would have allowed a true antigay bigot to get into a position of power, which would have been even worse. It's hard to say.

85. I am a huge Bernie supporter, but I don't think that this post is fair...

Other than a couple minor quips with some of his past votes on gun control, I think that Bernie is the best candidate on pretty much all of the issues. But there are clearly members of minority communities who face everyday non-economic based oppression who do not feel that he is speaking enough to their concerns. I do believe that Bernie will be a great president in terms of social and racial justice, but as a straight white dude, it is not my place to tell our African American and LGBTQ brothers and sisters which candidate will best address the issues affecting their communities. They have the life experiences and knowledge to make that judgment; I do not.

No candidate is entitled to anyone's vote. If you read the African American group on this board, there are several posters who are undecided, but I guarantee posts like this push those voters further and further away from Bernie. And I don't blame them. If someone attributed my voting preferences to Stockholm Syndrome rather than a rational thought process based on my life experiences, I would be less inclined to support his or her candidate as well. We should be reaching out to people, listening to their concerns, and respectfully make the case for why we feel Bernie should be the next President of the United States; we should not be chastising people because of which candidate they choose or choose not to support.

149. Oh, and as for black voters, the Clinton administration included a number of

extraordinarily talented black people (not to mention other minorities, including hispanics--Cisneros, Mineta, Richardson, Pena, Alvarez--and even Lebanese--i.e., Donna Shala) in highly visible positions, like Marian Wright Edelman, Ron Brown, Jesse Brown, Togo D. West, etc.

He also included a lot more women, both white and minority, in important positions--Edelman, Shalala, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and the first female SoS, Attorney General, etc.

Clinton made a real effort to open up high government office to women and minorities, thus "normalizing" the idea by making it so common. I think those efforts really made a difference for minorities and women in terms of opening up opportunities for such positions even beyond his time in office.

I am a Bernie supporter, but I will gladly support HRC if she is nominated. I do dislike her corporate/bankster ties, her involvement with the Family, and her hawkishness, but I rather suspect she figures those things are necessary to position herself so she can get into office in order to promote the more beneficial policies she has been promoting for decades.

I fear that she underestimates how constrained she will be as a result of such compromises and deal-making. You can't lie down with dogs without rising up with fleas. But I think (HOPE) that her intention is to use the office for good, not Ill, and despite her politically expedient actions and votes for policies that I recoil from, her career on the whole has done a lot to promote issues that benefit women and children both in the US and around the world.

Furthermore, like Obama Unchained, the badass president who doesn't have to worry about getting elected any more, a President Hillary would be at the end of her political career, so she wouldn't need to worry about protecting her own future political options, so she might well do a lot of good.

i actually learned a lot from reading your posts on these issues.

the question of why certain people support certain candidates would be good and informative in itself. but i question the OP's intentions because of things like the support for the Pope. plus the OP has ignored all the answers many have given . not just in this thread but many others.

and as you say it's just chatising the groups rather than wanting to actually listen.

I'm sure you are an expert on being a lesbian in your own mind, but since I am sitting here living it, it's not nearly as glamorous as movies of a certain type make it out to be.

652. A lot of people think that Democracy is the ability to own the latest iPhone.

Regardless of the fact that the new technology of cell phones and mini pads etc all exist through slave labor and the use of expanding the dumping in our oceans.

The Suburbanites I know that are for Hillary really have operated along the same lines of economics that she and Bill do.

First they inherited their parents' businesses in the late 1980's. Then they slashed the workers' hourly wages back in the 1990's. The Grand Finale was when they let their companies go belly up in the mid to late 1990's.

And that way they got a lot of money through Golden Parachuting out of the day to day running of their parents' business.

Who cares if the workers' pensions were destroyed by all that?

Rather similar to how Bill Clinton signed off on the Banking Modernization Act which destroyed Glass Steagal. And eventually destroyed the middle class. But hey, it worked out for the Clintons!! They both do very very well in front of Corporate Podiums, commanding over $ 375,000 per speech.

I don't even know where to begin on how much is wrong with your OP. So I'll just ask - Do you understand how ridiculous it is that you don't know the difference between Queen Latifah and Sister Soulja?

I'm still on the fence as far as which Dem I'm going to support, but these type posts do nothing to sway people to your candidate. I think Sanders would take a dim view of this type of tactic.

As I said, I'm undecided still - some days leaning toward Hillary, some days toward Sanders. Would be interested if Biden got in, but his games are beginning to bore me.

Posts like this, however, simply make supporters of whichever candidate posts them look very bad. This is the second really awful one I've seen from a Sanders supporter. The other was a vicious photo of Hillary that had no place on DU.

Sensible supporters of both candidates should try and rein in their more unreasonable peers.

I don't think all of Sanders supporters should be grouped together. There is one "inner" group that seem to have taken over things, the same group that have bashed president Obama from pretty much day one. They hate Obama, hate pretty much the whole democratic party, and of course they hate Hillary. Their agenda is not helping people come over to Bernie, instead I think it makes people less likely to want to vote for Bernie. Sometimes I really wonder if this group is "really" trying to get Bernie elected.

163. Since this is still stinking up DU, let us all look back at WillyT's former calls for kindness

 

and understanding for Republicans:

"But what I mean is... how did we get to this polarizing enmity in our national politics and discourse?

And I'm talking about both within the same party, but particularly between parties.

My old man, a Marine Bomber (B-25) pilot in WWII, was before and after that (plus Korea) a journalist. He wrote for a Chicago paper as a police reporter, then for the San Diego Union, the Copley News Service, Cox... and eventually was part of the California Highway Commission which built our state's freeway system. He knew, at least in the cosmos of California, all sorts of politicians, lobbyists, and movers and shakers. Hell, he'd hold cocktail parties, and I as a young tyke would spend my time stealing the onions out of the martinis of state senators and assemblymen.

Hell, when Reagan was running for re-election for governor of California, he invited the journalists covering the capitol, and their families, to the mansion for a huge BBQ complete with a cowboy on a horse doing rope tricks and such. Me and Skipper, now known as Ron Reagan, were the terrors of the dunk tank that day. And everybody, young old Republican or Democrat had a great time. My dad would not allow me to wear my Jesse Unruh button to the party, but he did get a kick out of the attempt.

My point is, from what I saw in the late sixties and into the seventies, from my youngish viewpoint, was that these guys, and they were almost always guys, seemed to actually get along no matter their party. They may have vociferously disagreed, defended their positions, their donors and their constituents, but they always seemed to like and respect each other at the end of the day.
http://journals.democraticunderground.com/?az=archives&j=1874&page=1


So why then does the OP keep spreading polarizing, bigoted enmity among Democrats? What would Dutch and Skipper say about that?
It skeeves me out that a poster who calls for Democrats to like and respect Republicans would stake out such a viciously divisive stance among Democrats and particularly in this way, crafted as it is as an attack on LGBT and African American voters for having a franchise equal to Skipper's playmate.

227. I don't know why anyone is suprised. The ENTIRE INTERNET has had a a front row seat to this

type of hateful idiocy for months now. Which is why an endless sea of progressive groups, movements and figures has called these people out more times than anyone can count.

But it's everybody in the entire world's fault that more poc aren't supporting their candidate and their rage that we aren't "doing as we're told" is what's lead to the type of lashing out that we're seeing in this OP, on Twitter, on John Lewis' Facebook page, on Black Lives Matter's Facebook page and everywhere black people dare to tread. The decision to lash out at gays is a bit more recent but we all know that bigotry doesn't live in a bubble. If someone has problems with black folks, they usually have problems with gays, women and other minorities as well.

So I sincerely hope that everyone remembers this the next time some puffed up, out of control Sanders supporter tries to blame the enmity between his campaign and minority communities on the minorities. I've seen so many incredibly stupid people here blame the rift on the AA forum and black people in general, accusing us of "driving a wedge" because we spoke up about this crap first as well as as loudly and often. I've always been damn glad that we did and seeing this kind of crap does nothing but cement that.

And yes, CaliDem's hide was complete and total bullshit. But again, I hope that no one is surprised. This is the nature of this place now and has been for a while.

208. WillyT, with posts like this, you've answered your own question...

If you're serious about a more nuanced discussion, you know where the Afr'Am forum is...

213. I don't get why straight white people would vote for Hillary Clinton.

For that matter, why would anyone, particularly the economically disadvantaged and/or working class folk, vote for Republicans?

They do nothing that is good whatsoever.

Makes no logical sense at all to me; but in this pseudo-democracy, I am resigned to the fact that others have different opinions than I have. These opinions somehow make sense to those who, from my POV, apparently vote against their own interests.

There are various reasons why individuals from any group vote the way they do. We're all just people. Like you, I am a reasonably well informed "policy and integrity" oriented voter. Obviously, not everyone is a reasonably well informed "policy and integrity" voter, or there would be no republican party.

We both know that the reasons people vote for who they vote for are myriad. Some people will even vote for a candidate because they have better hair than another candidate. Some because of the candidate's gender. I'm very sure there are more than a few people out there who won't vote for Hillary simply because she is a woman.

I suspect that there are even some women out there who will not vote for Hillary because she is a woman. Maybe they feel that they cannot vote for a woman because it goes against the tenets of their religion.

In general, this may seem illogical and unreasonable to many Democrats and left leaning independents, particularly reasonably informed policy and integrity oriented Dem and left leaning voters.

But it is what it is, and it ain't gonna change any time soon. In the meantime, it feels to me like the best course of action is for we Bernie supporters to spread the message of democratic equality, justice, and compassion, put ourselves in the voting majority, and significantly change our country and our world for the general benefit of everyone.

215. On DADT and DOMA

Re: DADT - Bill Clinton wanted to allow gays to serve openly in the military (this was part of his 1992 campaign platform) but settled on "DADT" because Congress would not agree to it. With DOMA, I believe this passed with a veto-proof majority, really forcing Clinton's hand, despite his objections to it, even then.

Obviously I do not support either of these policies, but I think it's important to understand them in context. I think it's outright dishonest to say that HRC openly "promoted" either one.

234. Why the Africa reference?

Most black Americans that descend from slaves have no connections with that Continent.

Well one of my husband's cousins is studying in Egypt right now - but she's an Italian with dual Germsn/Italian citizenship.
