    I’m not ignoring those questions. I specifically asked why is that the case for black males and not black females? That’s a question we all need to ask and figure out.

    And going “socioeconomics doesn’t matter” is stupid when it obviously is the number one criteria when it comes to every race and gender besides black and Native American males.

    Not just that, but to say that Democrats/the mainstream left are against most of those points is an outright parody of their actual position.

    I genuinely want him to expand on his completely fallacious beliefs that he touts as fact, like what MSM examples are there of conservatives being no platformed and what specifically was the ideal mentioned.

    Hes the king of "its reality" type responses to try to lend credence to his asinine bullshit that is VIRTUE SIGNALING his fragile white bros.

    It isn't a "blanket dismissal" to consult a study backed up with empirical evidence and then accept or reject a hypothesis based on that.

    Of course they are. And they describe conservatives blanketly as being racist pieces of shit for their stances.

    Hell I can’t tell you what the democratic stance even is on immigration. Feel free to tell me what you believe. If it’s open borders then great but be honest about it.

    It seems a bit patronizing that you have to spell out that they’re in favor of a “strong border” when it’s not really about the border at all it’s about hating minorities.

    If a study backed up your hypothesis with all but one grouping of subjects, your immediate question should be “why is that occurring and how do we stop it?”

    Not “we should reject that hypothesis.”

    google the DREAM Act which has been advocated this year, or go look up one of the multiple bipartisan immigration bills that were broadly supported by Democrats

    you don't know because you don't care, and making this about actual policy without addressing the racist nature of the policies Trump advocates is DOING HIS WORK FOR HIM

    what is the GOP stance on immigration?

    The act that says if an undocumented immigrant came to the us as an infant then they should be a us citizen?

    How the hell does that describe your immigration policy? It seems like your stance is “if you get here then we’ll welcome you.” If that’s your stance then say it.

    The Republican stance is easy as hell to describe. They don’t want your ass over here illegally and they want you deported if it happens.

    Nah, don't try to flip this.

    You made the argument that economics are the be-all-end-all for solving race issues. I supplied a study that shows very clearly that that isn't the case for black males.

    It's as simple as that. You had a theory that you claimed would work for black people. They tested it and it didn't work at all for black males.

    Even you trying to say socioeconomic now is a dodge, because in that post of yours I brought up you frame it as being a purely economic issue. You literally said we should be fighting for minorities "100% from an economic angle."

    The man literally sat in an immigration meeting and said we need to stop letting Africans and Haitians in and start encouraging more Europeans to come here.

    Merica: That’s not racist!

    can I see Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell come close to saying this or any other mainstream Republican not currently sitting in the WH.

    and thats a super suspect read of a complicated bill, but Dems are largely for continued increases in refugee acceptance because we have a moral duty to accept people we've displaced through our eternal conflicts, we've continually accepted a very small number of refugees per capita. they also support continued immigration under the same standards we've had for decades.

    Show me one fucking politician in Washington advocating open borders. One. Just fucking one.

    Then you can start buying into that bullshit talking point that you’ve swallowed Hook, line, and sinker.

    It’s really fucking sad that you have so completely fallen for white nationalist propaganda. You used to seem like a guy that actually gave a shit.

    But it didn't. Your hypothesis said equal economic footing would fix racism issues specifically with regard to black people, and with you using specific examples of men. They found that equal economic footing between men didn't lead to similar outcomes.

    Don't try to reframe the discussion now.

    And I still believe that’s the case. The data backs up my point in every demographic but one.

    We should also be asking ourselves why the hell this outlier exists and how to stop it. I sincerely doubt you’ll like some of the suggestions as to why it’s occurring. But this is why I said it’s a difficult conversation that we need to be able to discuss.

    Being aware of that study, do you still believe that race issues between black and white people can be resolved exclusively through economic mechanisms? In other words, that putting them on equal economic footing will remedy the issues?

    Why should I submit to your desires when you won’t fucking answer my questions? Why do you believe Democrats support open borders? Where did you get that? Why did you give that interpretation to the DREAM ACT when that’s an absurdly reductionist interpretation of the law? What the fuck happened to you that you are so profoundly in favor of white nationalist talking points? Did you read the Camp of the Saints? Did you start posting on Gab? What was it?

    Edit- sorry MA

    “If you’re so critical of me labeling the Democrats’ immigration and border policy as open borders (in the context of me being critical of Democrats shunning racist and misogynistic policies and the assholes who espouse them because of their racist and misogynistic underpinnings) why don’t you draft up a five page white paper outlining what you think the policy should be?”

    That’s not a real response, right?
