Chris Matthews: America Is "Swimming" In Racism

CHRIS MATTHEWS: This is always tricky business because we grew up in a country that had slavery for 350 years, we had Jim Crow for 100. We have racial segregation in housing, which is unbelievable, there's an untold amount of it still in business that you can't isolate, and then we sit around like purists and say, "oh I've detected some racism here." It's all around us! And we don't even-- we're swimming in it, to some extent. And we don't know how to define it or limit it or push away from it. We all agree we've got to push away from it.

John Boehner has refused to challenge the nut balls in his party who believe in birtherism, that's not even racism. That's racism plus stupidity. To think this guy's white mother from Kansas headed over to Africa to have the kid over there and have a kid named Barack Hussein Obama elected president in 40 years. That's insane kind of thinking, but Donald Trump played that card.

Since he is one of the biggest backers of the "racist" theory, he should be attuned to it.  Since he apparently is embarrassed to be white and wishes he had been born black, he sees "racism" in tree trunks. :3:

In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

We're swimming in the economic disaster that is the Obama administration, I know that.

He failed to mention the first true slave owner in America, previously all were indentured servants, was a black man.

Yeah..............Lincoln freed the slaves in 1957.

Don't you remember Millee?  I do, because I was in second grade, and it made a big impression on me.   :dx1:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

He is so stuck in his own 'racist' mind, that he can't get past it.
 
How racist is it to keep screaming that some people cannot possibly achieve or get ahead because of the color of their skin? And then to claim that they cannot do anything and it is somehow our fault for making them that way?
 
How racist is that, Chrissy? Chrissy is a two way racist. On the one hand he believes Black people to be pathetic. On the other hand he hates Whites for making them like that.
 
He is a 'super racist', he hates the whole world.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
