Constructive Engagement

"Constructive engagement" was Reagan's policy for apartheid South Africa. Under constructive engagement the US did not absolutely condemn the racist apartheid regime of white South Africa, but rather sought to maintain some degree of interaction in an attempt to persuade the apartheid government to mend its ways. Apartheid South Africa was the very definition of racism, yet the Republican's saint Ronald Reagan refused to utterly condemn the regime, preferring dialog.

If you suggest the same thing today with regards to the VB or the BNP you get banned from LGF or Hot Air.
