Sno, you seem to think we're going to be able to wrap this thing up with a bow - it's not gonna happen.
Unlike you, I keep an open mind about most things. You can get all frustrated that you can't pin me down on this, but I happen to think that is a good thing.
We need more open-minded people in the world (and certainly on this forum).

You are just now
learning that minority participation in the Democratic party is higher than in the Republican party?
But earlier you said this:

So now you seem to say that if we believe black voters not understanding the process was one of the secondary reasons for the voting-race disparity in the SC GOP primary
, we're so muddled you don't know what to say. (Can anyone translate him better? Please do.)
That was in response to Marvell who said I was suggesting the reason for the low turnout was that non-whites didn't understand the process. If you believe that you must believe I was also "suggesting" that they were afraid, intimidated, etc. It doesn't make any sense that they could be all those things at once. It's not very nuanced, I really don't understand why you're having a problem with it. Actually, I do. It's because you just want an argument, not a discussion. Certainly you don't want a discussion that might not fit in with your delicate liberal sensibilities.

It must be nice for you to have all the answers Sno.

These verbal-trickery games are so annoying I can't imagine why anybody even replies any more, because we ca never know which of your versions is real and which is game-playing. (I suppose it's because we're so dedicated to correcting all the errors on the Internet.)
Now you're just being paranoid. A person can't even admit they don't have the answers and not get slammed for it.
What do you think of the race war scenario Sno?
It's a culture war, and we're already in it.
Not the same thing.
Sno, you and I just need to ignore each other. I'll save my discussion for city2countrygal. Agreed?
