And it is not required to listen to two hours of babble to have an opinion about the one sentence the candidate spewed, calling the district constituents racists.

I find it funny that you will twist yourself into knots to defend this obvious case of racism, yet will go out of your mind crazy trying to tie Trump or other Republicans to racism for perceived racism found is so called "dog whistles".

Don't like it much when a person's speech, no matter how long, gets parsed out and a particular sentence gets held up for to see, huh? Well, gee....

Trump sticks his foot in it on a regular basis all on his own, but the number of sentences, even partial sentences that get parsed out, when taken in context do not even come close to what some of the left wants to display as 'racist', etc., is astounding.

Considering her statement was flaming her own constituents, not even taken out of context, there is no defending this one. She owns it.

Oh yeah, we should all go and listen to 2 hours of the race baiting socialist Democrat because there might be some worthwhile "ideas" buried in her indictment of her constituents. It's typical Democrat partisan double standard that embraced Robert Byrd while claiming the other side are irredeemable.

Nope. If your claim is that socialist girl #2 said something other than what she said, it's up to you to point it out.

Boy, there certainly seems to be many Black racists out there in politics.

Is this a racist statement?

“I just look at my district, right? And it’s 93 percent black,” Political candidate X said during the program, KDKA noted. “My district, which I know is like black working-class poor folk who are racist, because it’s so much easier for them to look to their side and say, ‘I’m going to blame that person.’”
