Georgia candidates’ starkly divergent views on race could be key in runoff (225 hits)

Georgia candidates’ starkly divergent views on race could be key in runoff
Story by Edwin Rios •

As senator Raphael Warnock faces off against Republican challenger Herschel Walker in the most expensive race of the 2022 midterms, they also encounter a historic moment: it’s the first time in modern Georgia history that two Black candidates were nominated by both party’s voters to vie for a US Senate seat in the deep south state.

Warnock and Walker both had experiences with poverty and Christianity during their upbringings yet their views on race and racism in society are now in stark contrast.

In campaign speeches and previous remarks, Walker, who has been endorsed by former president Donald Trump, has argued racism in America doesn’t exist, asking supporters at an event earlier this year: “Where is this racism thing coming from?” Warnock, meanwhile, has spent years decrying racism, including lambasting Republican efforts at voting restrictions on the Senate floor as “Jim Crow in new clothes”.

Political scientists and historians say that the contrasting views – Walker’s belief of an America “full of generous people” without racism, as he declared in one ad; Warnock’s belief in America dealing with racism as an “old sin” – influence how voters, specifically Black voters, will turn out and who they will support.

Warnock wants to keep racism going in America. That's what keeps him employed, an artificial bogeyman. You too for that matter Ron. That's the Democrat playbook, keep the deluded masses dependent on master.

What system would you rather work under communism? With all of democracies faults, and all the work that still has to be done this United States of America, is the best place on the planet to live because of democracy.

Would you agree with my last comment Steve?

That's just what Herschel said Ron. Personally, I don't believe America has the best form of government. Our government is entirely poisoned, because of the Democrat/Media Party and Republican Party dichotomy, that allows them all to exploit democracy for their exclusive benefit, not the people's.

I don't know Ron, I'm an American, and I'm fine living here. I want to see the Democrat and Republican parties abolished.

What would you replace our U.S. Government Constitution with?

The Democrat and Republican Parties aren't in the Constitution Ron. Ask me what I'd replace the Democrat and Republican Parties with.

I asked you a question about The U.S. Constitution Steve. What would you replace the US Constitution with?

Do you have reason to think I want to replace the Constitution Ron?

Because of this statement you wrote: "I want to see the Democrat and Republican parties abolished." and replace them with what Steve because The Congress follows the laws set forth by The Constitution and nobody is thinking about reinstating TRUMP the loser back in office as President of The United States of America, do you understand that Steve?
