It likely is a little bit racist, but in some cases it might be trying to head off "all of them are white" or point out the racists on the other side, ones that would make comments like he is an Oreo (more or less calling a black person white on the inside) or pull a Biden like comment (You ain't Black). There are many ways either side could put politics ahead of the other matters.It seems kind of racist to suggest I "keep in mind" that the bill was at least partly written by a black Republican, as if skin color should be a determining factor in deciding the merits of the bill.
Sadly, it has gotten to the point where "Bipartisan" from the Democrats appears to mean more "we get what we want, you get little, if anything, of what you want." Even just a simple, we'll let the states decide on the banning of choke holds would go a long way to getting such a bill passed.The Democrats' desire to draft a bipartisan bill, instead of voting on a Republican only bill, is the only thing that makes sense.
She has likely done good things for her state, and a fair job in the House, but to put a bit of light on her, and not trying for false equivalence here, she is one of those that has been in office too dang long and is one of those that those of us on the right that don't like Trump look at on the left and up seeing are like "uh, these are my choices? ugh.". It has been mentioned before that there are things that either side could do that would help relations with the other. Well, politician wise, it could be something like "you want us to dump Trump? get rid of Pelosi".I have a good opinion of Nancy Pelosi
This is the state of politics in the US anymore, both parties are so entrenched that everything seems to have a politics first approach, and most of the people of the US are sick and tired of it.
