    It was striking how the groups thought of themselves generally as conservatives, yet generally agreed with liberal attitudes and positions on current issues.
    When words and actions don't reconcile, I always go with actions.  Many white people might say they support liberal positions, but I think it is they have just learned to say nice things and walk away.

    •  No. It's that they are victims of propaganda. (1+ / 0-)

      75% of all Americans wanted a Public Option in the ACA.  And a majority of Americans want to see corrupt bankers rotting in jail.  But once tribal politics kicks into gear, they go with their tribal alliances instead of with their own opinions.

      Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!

      •  Oh, so they are victims now..... (0+ / 0-)

        Meh, don't care, it is all the same to me:
        I say nice things and walk away because...
           ... I really don't give a damn.
           ... I am hiding my true motives.
           ... My loyalty to white politics trumps everything else.

        I really don't care, it is all the same to me.  Some people might be more careful with what they say and do if others didn't dismiss it so lightly.
