I disagree with a lot of people who are not racist. You are one of the racists. Some liberals are racists. Some conservatives are racists. Some claim to not be racists and are but they are not aware of it. Many people are that.

It has to do with being pro capitalism. Capitalism is about classes of people. Owners and non owners of property. Power relationships. In this country you got racists because there were entire ethnic groups excluded from citizenship and membership in this society who were not European. But since I am a socialist? It also means class systems are the reason for racism. And most everyone in the world has a class system.

How do I feel about racists?

Again Toni Morrison said it best:


You seem to give the word all encompassing power to cover anything that doesn’t agree with your ideology. That makes the term meaningless. If you don’t like capitalists then call them capitalists. Why the need to call them racists? What purpose does that serve? It obfuscates instead of clarifying what you mean. I can’t see any reason for it other than to demonize for propaganda. Calling everyone ‘anti socialists’ instead of ‘racists’ would make more sense from your definition.
Will any white people be allowed in your socialist utopia? Are any white people not racist in your opinion? If so, what qualifies them as not being racist?

As far as the video, I agree with what she said. Her doubting herself was unnecessary, but demonstrates intelligence. I would never have questioned whether she was justified in being offended.

That is because only two of you do not know what it is? I am not buying that. You define what you think racism is. Stop talking about dictionaries. That is just a dodge. So you said that Trump is not a racist. We posted evidence in his own words and actions that he is. YOU tell us what racism is and why what he has repeatedly done is not racist.

But I am going to hammer this forever. If you even consider voting for a racist you are a racist. It is really as simple as that.



Well DrLee, I have to say, this is one instance in which I agree with your assessment 100%.

@Tainari88 As far as your quiz, the sample question was too ridiculously simplistic to bother with the quiz. I am well aware of how these types of questions are used to return desired results by fake tests. The Harvard limplicit bias test was sufficient for me.

@Tainari88 I took your quiz out of fairness. The result was “you are not racist”. The test was every bit as stupid and elementary as I feared.

What kind of Spanish? Spain has a lot of languages Hindsite. Catalan, Gallego, Mozarabe, Euskari or Basque, Franco provencal, etc. Standard Spanish is really from the middle of Spain called Castilla. Thus the second name for Spanish. Castellano. Castilian.

In this side of the world Spanish has more native speakers than English.

Who do you think is a racist Hindsite?

Lol. I think you are not only racist but a lot of other things. I also don't think you are a bad person either.

If you don't know how capitalism has anything to do with racism? Then go back and study the reason for class systems.

I don't think you will be able to make the connection between racism and class systems. If I thought you could? I would have to apologize to you Hindsite for underestimating your thought process.

This is not about emotions or bitterness or resentment. It is about what creates a space for discrimination in human society. Why are some people not accepted or wanted or integrated and marginalized and others are? Based on something that person can't control.

If you can't really understand why you might be a racist due to voting for Trump? Not much there to work with is there?

Based on what you said the Spanish speakers must be the racist, since English speakers are part of the minority.

Many people like to be around people that are like themselves, that have similar interests and speak the same language. Maxine Waters has told her supporters, "If you see any of the Trump administration out in a public place, you tell them they are not wanted." Is that being racist? I am not sure, but it certainly is not being nice.

Tainari88 wrote:If you can't really understand why you might be a racist due to voting for Trump? Not much there to work with is there?

Could it be because he is against illegal immigration into the United Sates of America and wants to build a high wall to keep them out? If so, then I don't consider that racist. I just think that is common sense law and order and security. Praise the Lord.

Then why oh why, did you refrain from voting for the lesser knowing full well the consequences of not voting? You have no right to complain, we all knew what trump was going to do and you let it happen. This is why I hate non-voters more than the racists.


Who said I did not vote Libertarian? I voted. For a socialist. I was born in Puerto Rico. My first vote I casted for the PIP party. International Socialists politically and pro independence. I moved to the states. Who did I vote for when I had national elections? Socialist. Period. Consistency is my motto. Did not vote for Obama. Too moderate and too liberal. I agree with socialists. Not liberals. I am consistent.

Socialists don't win in the USA. Too few. But who cares? I am moving to Mexico and intend to be a Mexican citizen within four years time of settling there. I will vote for socialists in Mexico. Of which have already won the elections there and the present prez of Mexico is a socialist.

Who else is a socialist? Ex president of Chile. Bachelet. Ex president of many nations. Including France, Spain, Greece and many others have had socialist leaders. So has Sweden.

I am consistent Libertarian. I open the ballot and look for Socialism. Hillary is not a socialist. She is a liberal and a corporate one at that. Trump is a product of the racist fearmongering Republicans. This society has a lot of racist voters. I am not responsible for other groups in politics votes. Only mine.

The non voters are a big problem in the USA. In most of the other nations in Latin America and in other nations voting is obligatory. Not an option. You got to vote. Here? They are kind of blase or indifferent. I have never been a non-voter. Always voted. Everywhere. On local ballots, on national elections. I just don't vote Democrat or Republican. I don't like either party.
Get me a socialist and I will put energy behind it. No socialist? No vote from me. Pretty easy. I am in Colorado so I vote in Colorado. Haven't missed an election yet. They always have socialist candidates in national elections. In local ones sometimes they only have Democrats. I then look for a website that is Colorado and they say 'these are the issue for socialist voters in Colorado...these candidates think this way. Make a decision."I make a decision. You can bet a racist asshole and a super ultra Republican conservative will not get a single vote from me. If the Democrats don't correct why they keep losing even with 3 million more popular votes than Trump racist man_ how am I responsible for that crap Libertarian_

I will never vote for a candidate I had no idea of where they stand on many issues. I grew up in a very politically aware family and Boricuas discuss politics almost as a national pastime. So, I feel comfortable with politics. Always have. I think I read capitalist theory in depth at 11 years old.

From Venezuela to France, Socialism Is Failing All Over the World

By Carlos Sabino Last updated Apr 30, 2017

Venezuelan socialism is a self-deprecating expression of extreme socialist ideas, the type of Marxism that, when applied for the first time in Russia just 100 years ago, called itself communism. The French, on the other hand, like most Europeans, showed last Sunday they no longer have faith in the other variant of socialism, the “light” or moderate form that in many countries has been called Social Democracy or Democratic Socialism.

Both ideologies coincide on a fundamental point: their rejection of capitalism and the free market economy that give everyone the right to produce and consume according to their needs.

Some, like communists, want to eliminate it completely, while others want to control it and reduce it to its minimum expression.

Venezuelan socialists have shown that they have the same totalitarian calling as their Soviet and Chinese predecessors as well as their Cuban counterparts. Not only have they sunk a rich oil nation into poverty, they have also shown that their alleged democracy is a farce, for they do not hesitate to brutally repress their people when they protest.

The Venezuelan dictatorship’s constant aggression toward private property has created an economy incapable of sustaining itself or of offering the goods that people need. Scarcity, inflation and unemployment are the direct consequences of this way of governing, and it leads to repression and dictatorship when citizens try to rise against it.

Socialists created a model of government that, based on very high taxes, intended to transfer the wealth of those who have more toward those who have the least. They tried to accomplish this by creating the so-called welfare state, in which health, education, pensions and sometimes even housing became benefits offered by the government.

Markets were regulated in a thousand different ways and controls were imposed on production. This model of government prevails today in Europe and, to a large extent, in the United States, but such intervention in society reveals its limitations over time. The size and expenditure of governments has been growing, resulting in colossal debt and severe economic crises that have been increasingly ineffective in providing the services they promise to offer, and undermine the rights and values of a free society.

I am not so naive as to believe that voters today understand that the welfare state is a failed experiment. But the discomfort felt is obvious when looking at the negative consequences of immense, ineffective and exploitive governments. It explains why moderate socialists are suffering heavy losses in elections across the world.

Not that this will automatically fix all the problems they will inherit. It’s safe to say the only basic solution is to recover individual freedoms, accept the need for a free economy and substantially reduce the functions and extent of the state. Not just in Europe, but all over the world.

https://panampost.com/carlos-sabino/201 ... reloaded=1

Venezuela's Maduro Admits Socialist Model Has Failed

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro admitted that his socialist economic model has "failed" amid food and medicine shortages as well as a failing infrastructure highlighted by Tuesday's power failure to 80% of Caracas.

Compounding matters is the IMF's Weimar-topping hyperinflation forecast of 1,000,000% by year end, and a GDP set to plummet 18% this year, as the government continues to simply print money to in hopes of filling the void of what was once the country's economy.

"The production models we've tried so far have failed and the responsibility is ours, mine and yours," Maduro told his ruling PSUV party congress. "Enough with the whining... we need to produce with or without (outside) aggression, with or without blockades, we need to make Venezuela an economic power."

"No more whining, I want solutions comrades!"

No word on whether he took a bite of an empanada during his speech while his country starves on the "Maduro diet" - a phrase coined after Venezuela's notorious food shortages gave rise to mass starvation across the country. Not even the donkeys are safe.

Venezuela's socialist government has nationalized a wide swath of industries across the country over the past several years, such as steel and cement plants, food processing, distribution and more. In order to try and control inflation, the country has fixed prices on various goods while imposing tight regulations surrounding foreign exchange.

Meanwhile, Venezuela's industrial sector is operating at just 30% capacity, as illustrated by the farming sector, which now provides just a quarter of national consumption, after providing 75% just a few years ago according to the National Farmers Federation.

This should all make for some interesting debate questions during the next US elections, as Democratic Socialists have become the "new face" of the left. Just don't ask any questions about economics or logistics.

Hmm. I am interested in how you made this huge leap in logic there. Tainari votes for a socialist in an election in Colorado (a state Hillary carried by the way in 2016) and one socialist voter in a big city like mine magically is responsible for a bunch of deaths in Puerto Rico caused by FEMA and Trump. Because why? Tell me how you get to this conclusion Libertarian?




So consistency of voting republican through a wasted vote.


I wasted my vote by not voting for Hillary Clinton? Why do I owe Hillary loyalty? She was against freeing Puerto Rican socialist activists. She is not a friend and never was. She is a sellout corporate crony liberal that is barely liberal, and more of an average right winger in European politics and in Latin American politics she is a staunch conservative. She might be your white woman liberal savior but she is not mine Libertarian.

The Ford lady who is receiving threats for calling out rapes from a rapist in who now a deciding factor of many female rights cares.


Petty moralism? I have no idea why you are pissed off at me for being a consistent international socialist voter? I am supposed to vote the way you think I should? Are you really serious with this? The Clintons and Hillary called Black men 'superpredators' and they rose to prominence being a bunch of hypocritical corporate sellouts. I don't owe them anything. Blacks and cops have to do with racism and the criminal justice system. And both parties suck at correcting it. The Democrats and the Republicans. Why? Why did both of those majority parties suck at correcting a bunch of problems. The short version? They are controlled by globalist multinational capitalists who hedge their bets backing both corrupted parties. End of story. By continuing to believe that either side is not corrupt you are the one falling into the 'plan'. But go ahead and get off ranting about a bunch of things and being angry at me. Are you for real with this stuff Libertarian? The rumors I have heard on PoFo is that you are a former poster called Ethiopian Monarchist who was banned due to insulting members? Are you guy who is upset and has to insult people? If I were you? I would not try to re enter PoFo and would move on to a new website of political people and go and do my stuff there. Why risk another problem? Unless you are addicted to PoFo and this is your shtick. You are so nutty Senor.
Ah so escaping responsibility of your choices, if only alot of people who hates trump and are poor had that luxury to leave.

Lol. You can run for that border too Libertarian. Or you can be a true Blue American and stay and fight for your corporate sellout liberals from the Democratic party and put those racist Trump supporters through the ringer. You can do it Libertarian! Kick some red state racist hijos de su puta madre ass!. I want to do this and I am this:
Yo soy LATINA. Watch the video.



So are racists, they get in line and vote and you keep giving them the vote.


Libertarian, I think you need to vent. Do some primal screaming in an abandoned forest. All of us got that problem. At some point. Say, 'racists, I am a humble Black man who used to be Ethiopian Monarchist. I got to be free to be me. The racists won't let me. So I pick on a Puerto Rican 53 year old cultural anthropologist who has a 21 year old African American adopted son that she raised and that I accuse of not giving a fuck about the victims of drug wars, cop abuse and American criminal justice on the internet. I don't know her from Adam or Eve...but she must be my whipping girl because the racists on here don't piss me off as much as the ones who could have voted for Hillary but did not do so.....PRIMAL SCREAM.....AAAAAAHHHH. Tainari MUST DIE!!! Lol.


So what, she's not trump and she believe in climate change, I would to breathe.


Organize for making a change. It is hard work. And it will make you feel in control of your life.


Wrong! You enable racists by not voting and all consequences of it is on you and the 75,000 who didn't vote. Fuck them and fuck you.

You fucking cunts are the reason this world is going to burn. I don't have for your petty moralism, that doesn't stop the republicans from ruining our lives and taking my damn money.

And now my barn animals with the rest of the city is going to drink polluted water cause your inadvertent vote for trump has killed more people in 2 years than what hillary would have done in 8 years.

So we're done here, I don't want to here you complain about how racist trump is anymore.


I think you need to vent in the forest for a while. Go out with the Barn Animals and vent in the forest and when you get a grip on yourself? You can come back and think about your petty venting that doesn't solve a damn thing in this political world. You need to get some help for yourself and get a chill pill again. The world is not about you and your resentments Libertarian.

Capitalism is an economic system that allows people to get rich by creativity and ingenuity and by employing workers at a fair wage for their work. It is good for people that can work and are willing to work for a living. It may not be that good for those unable to work for a living unless the rich are willing to donate to help the poor. So if the capitalist is greedy like the devil, then I too would be against a Capitalistic system like that. But in the USA, we have many large business owners that donate a lot of money to their church and to the poor. So I don't agree that capitalism makes one racist and unable to care for the needy.

I guess you believe Socialism makes people love their neighbor somehow. To me, that is not love, if you are forced into it. That is why God gave us free will so that we could love or hate. The USA uses Socialism in their welfare and medicaid programs and in unemployment insurance to name a few. But as I pointed out from the Venezuelan socialism example, a pure socialist government eventually leads to a poor country with mass starvation and unrest. It also stifles, or at least, discourages the creativity and ingenuity associated with free market capitalism.

I believe Jesus gives examples of workers being hired for a days work and also of investing money as is done in a capitalist system today in a couple of his parables.

Brainwashed by capitalists Hindsite. Think about it. Jesus died without money and from a poor family and alienating the rich Roman rulers such as Pilato. He was born in a humble manger and never got a gold crown. Only one of thorns. He told his followers to give away all their possessions and follow him. That are not words of a rich man at all. He is talking about letting go of being attached to material possessions. Didn't he go out to the desert and Satan offered him power and riches from this world. He offered him all the armies of the world and he offered him riches. Why? Because Satan controls wealth and power. They are the realm that Satan knows best and can offer that to Jesus if he turned his back on his devotion to God. Satan can only offer Jesus Christ what he controls. And capitalism is about both. Wealth and power.

And it is still controlled by Satan. If you believe in the bible. I like symbolism in human history. And Christianity is part of human history.

I don't think the Capitalists get rich through good works. They get rich through evil greed and exploiting people all over the world. That is how they do it. If all worked and shared with a lack of greed and with a spirit of love and service? Maybe the world of politics, and in every other aspect of community life would improve Hindsite.

But if you keep believing the rich are superior and represent God on Earth? Through some capitalist trash philosophies about magical wealth that has nothing to do with a Satanic attachment to Greed? Then there is not much to say.

Racism is a part of class discrimination. It is a form of keeping people in bondage. Without freedom. The Jews were ruled by the Roman Emperors. A subjugated nation. I read a book that is very interesting. "Zealot" it was called by Ezra somebody forgot his last name. He is a religious scholar. A great recreation of what life was like for the Jews from Jesus of Nazareth's group at the time in history. None of it is in favor of for profit structures of life. In fact, the only time Jesus became angry in the bible was the moneychangers taking over the Temple. All that common and low love of wealth and worshiping the Golden Calf was all about a lack of respect for God and what it means to respect a spiritual life.

Capitalism is not the best system. It never was. When it no longer functions because it comes to the end of its usefulness? The replacement will not be about keeping it afloat. It is primitive and it is unfair and it is a system based on the same evil you find in the ancient Old Testament and New Testament. GREED. One of the deadly sins.

It is not that hard. You are a religious man. So I give you a religious explanation. In the end? How you are with your fellow human beings, including not being a racist, is important. That is the only true legacy any of us leave. How we love our fellow human beings Hindsite.
