No one obsesses about race like Democrats but only because they see it as a tool for entrenching greater political power. Johnson said if Democrats could convince blacks it was Democrats behind civil rights instead of Republicans -as it really was-they (Democrats) could get "those n*ggers" to vote for them for the next 200 years. Power is their only concern when it comes to race. If you think it's because they actually CARE about blacks, you live in an alternate dimension. NO ONE who truly cares about the welfare of another person would ever, EVER encourage and bribe them to become dependent on government and its permanent poverty trap instead of living as a person free to make of his life what HE will, not what government will.
