Where do Republicans come up with such nonsense?
Clearly unconstitutional means nothing to liberals.

And I personally don't believe the government should force a woman to give birth just so a child can live a few hours in agony then die because "pro-life", especially if giving birth puts the mother at risk of death.

As far as the new explanation, "I didn't do that blackface, but I did a different one.", is about as bad as it gets. Northam's only making it worse for himself, and I believe he mentioned it because that Michael Jackson photo might be out there somewhere.
Northam's problems arose when he made an attempt to defend Delegate Tran's then pending abortion bill which extended abortion rights to the moment of birth. There was no mention of quality of life for the infant, just extending abortion. In fact her bill extended to mom's mental health. Northam, who should have stayed out of a losing battle, felt it should extend it past birth. No time limit noted.

His racial problems were not helped because he made a phony big deal out of Gillespie (his opponent) racist position. One of his ads portrayed Gillespie driving a redneck pickup truck running down black children.

just so I don't leave you in the dark, no this has nothing to do with trying to shame you; this would be a back and forth. you could say how others make you feel or what you assume about their life affecting (or not) your own. And Each person at the table could tell their own feelings and react verbally to each other.
I merely quoted your own words.

True, "shame" was not one of those words.

But absent a sense of collective white shame--or white guilt--why do we need a "back and forth"?

Would you suggest a similar "back and forth" between, say, blondes and brunettes? Or between blue-eyed people and brown-eyed people?

Or do you see some sort of (continued) oppression in one that simply does not exist anywhere else?

Does anyone believe that?

if you notice trump operatives are spreading all kinds of stuff

lizabeth warren card, kamala fake nudies, also local and state democrats like virginia gov and lt gov
some made up; some inconsequential
dropping 'lil marco' turds all over in preparation for a campaign where trump has nothing on his side
he should be highly critisized
he's on the take
and in putin's toilet

are blue eyed people shot indiscriminately because police fear them?
