I mean, you could argue that they're accountable for all their actions. It's a bit of a Theseus Ship question. I would say that if a organization has changed so much that it can no longer be identified as the same organization without knowing the name, then they are two different organizations and its history is irrelevant.

If Bloomberg got the nomination, the question would be: which Manehattan billionaire who really hates zebras should I vote for?. Instead, assuming they screw Bernie out of the nomination, the likely question is which Ukraine-corrupted dementia daddy earns my vote?

The Democratic and Republican parties have gone through massive changes both in terms of policy as well as followers since the era of the KKK. Back then the Democratic party was considered to be more orientated to majority views and favored small government while the Republican party was more minority oriented and favored large government. In the 20th Century we see a near complete reversal of these policies. My history professor told me that it would be wrong to consider either party of the time as "left wing" or "right wing" since these are more modern terms that don't quite apply. Either way, it is wrong to make judgments on either party based on their stances over 100 years ago.

indeed. Both parties suck ass because they're run by out-of-touch 60 year old boomers with more money then they could ever spend. They wonder why so many people don't vote when there isn't really a choice anymore.

It is possible, yes. But it is also possible for other people to have a pattern recognition capabilities that, when they see this kind of disingenuous JAQing all the time, to stop giving folks the benefit of a doubt when they don't deserve it. And that particular BP's posts in these comments have convinced me of that.

Of course racism is not a dichotomy, and of course you can be more or less racist. And the way you keep "just asking questions" like this tells me you're either terribly ignorant, or IMO much more likely, acting in deliberate bad faith.

Let's not mince words, since this whole pic is rooted in the US politics and racism: in the present-day United States, the Republicans are the party of choice for the racist white Southerners, as well as other xenophobic nativists. And as such, the Republican party rhetoric and policies are far more racist, and deliberately so, than the Democratic ones.

what is it that can make a party worse in racism? isn't racism a dichotomy rather than a spectrum? unless you mean, one is worse in the sense that it does racist things more often, then perhaps that may make it worse, but other than that, isn't it just a matter of being racist or not instead of less racist or more racist?

Everyone in these comments is acting like the US doesn't have two highly-racist mainstream political parties.
Well you're half right, because there is at least one that is.
