Ah "monkeys", didn't take long for that one to come out of the closet.

True, but difficult not to notice when brought up in a thread about voter laws.

I'm not sure what you're saying. Did you think he meant it in a racist way? Because I'm not seeing that, to be honest.

It's nice that you tend towards the more generous interpretation, I tend toward the more cynical. In a thread about the potential disfranchisement of black people, via ID laws, saying that it's so simple to get an ID even a "monkey" can do it, raises a red flag.

This is the second time in two weeks that you've called someone a racist or bigot for something that was neither racist or bigoted. What the f*ck is wrong with you?

I'm off my game? I'll try to step back up to the plate.

That's a baseball metaphor.

He's a Leftist.

... No, he knows I am correct, and is attempting to distract and discredit (the typical leftist move when cornered) - get everybody to look the other way.

... I am so right, and he just cannot accept that.

You have hit a new low. Out of all your accusations on this board, this one was probably the most absurd.

Because you took a very common phrase, that people all over the world use on a daily bases, and turned it into a race issue. No one else read into it what you did. No one. So either you are the smartest person on CC, or you are a shit disturber that likes making easy accusations thinking you are serving the better good by pointing out how wrong and racist everyone else is. I lean more to the latter.

It is far to easy to accuse someone of being racist and having them have to defend themselves as to why they aren't. You must really enjoy what you do...
