Only one of those men (and you) is advocating depriving people of political clout based on their race. That contrast is also obvious.
We are never going to get past this race crap until everyone stops doing this. We should all be think ...[text shortened]... bout and speaking of people as "people", NOT "black people" or "white people".
Can you do it?

no dear. the old white men currently at the head of the Republican party are bad for the party and bad for the whole country. i am advocating removing them based on that, not on the fact that they are old and white. i don't care if they are replaced with other old white men as long as they are different and do what is best for everyone, not just a few.
that is definitely what that man meant (even though what came out might have sounded racist, just because he didn't bother to mention "those specific old white men"😉
there is a little difference.
"We are never going to get past this race crap"
i agree, we are definitely not going to get past this race crap when someone mentions what an obvious racist (and moronic racist at that) said and you immediately jump at a mild comment as racist and declare it is equal.
the iowa republican just said non-whites are subgroups of people. do you get that it is not the same thing as wanting old white republicans to retire to florida and make room for hopefully paul ryan clones (who are nowhere near as bad)?
