Why do liberals put different values on people based on age, color, gender, social status etc? Is this not the definition of racism?

Hypocrites, no way not liberals!

    It is such a shame that Liberals promote Identity Politics. That it should not be necessary makes you wonder Why they do that? Just to pander to the rabble rousers? If so, just Cancel them.

    I think you are mistaking valuing all people, for placing different values on people. For example, the reason why liberals say 'black lives matter,' instead of 'all lives matter' is because all lives DO matter, but black people's lives are treated like they don't matter. They happen to get shot to death more often, they are more likely to get sent to jail for the same offense, they get stared at every day for being black; a few among a myriad of issues. These people live in very real fear for their lives daily, as they never know which people will pass them by, and which will point a gun at their head.

    This isn't about liberalism or conservatism. This is about people's lives. Listen to our fellow Americans, that are finally getting the chance to speak.

    Think about it-how often do you see black people as the main characters in movies or TV shows? Does their sudden appearance surprise you, because you realize you haven't been seeing them before? 

    Carrying a long and dark history, and yet strength and resiliency allow each of them to shoulder it with pride. Black is beautiful, so much more than a color.

    They don't.  They recognise how all people are equal and in order to ensure that equality we need to give some people extra help.

    Because of thier passion for identity politics. This is why Old Joe nominated Beccera for HHS secratary. It doesn't matter that he has no medical or scientific credentials. All that matters is that he is a progressive hispanic.

    From slavery to Jim Crow to identity politics, democrats have always been the party of racism and discrimination.
