An interesting discussion of racism

one of the unintended consequences of anti racism tends to be elimination of cultural diversity we are all the same

We are not all the same. Our classification of being of the human beings should give us an equal start in life. The problem is that for generations, our classification has given us a superiority over others of color, God choice and the way we treat each other. I read several books on the subject of male superiority allowing the women to be treated as the spoils of war. Being raised as a Mormon, introduced women as being the breeders of more Mormons in direct competition with the Catholics.

In my reading of more and more changes in the Republican Agenda shows an enormous increase of degrading women in the home, in politics and even in the armed services. This should be a challenge for all women but they have chosen to down grade their own IQs and live as inferiors.

Birth control is now considered an act of Satan. It was rough going when the religious right claimed the right to ban all birth control but now it has taken on the Republican Party.

In the last 4 months, there has been an increase of Democratic House Members who have chosen not to run again in the elections. The GOP is thrilled at the chance to maintain their majority for another 2 year session.
