It's almost as if conservatives are intent on watering down the very concept of racism. The hissy fits y'all have been throwing about race are really strange. Racism continues to exist in America. Political operatives on the Republican side are more than willing to use that fact to get more votes. This isn't mere cynicism, it's political reality.
Watering down the concept of racism means that even when Colorado Republican Bob Schaffer's son puts a poster up that reads, "Slavery Gets Shit Done", conservatives can wave off any charges of racism by saying, "you guys think everything is racist!".
Slippery slope you're helping to carve, Tigerhawk.
I think Bookwormroom did it best.
If the Liberals persist on throwing charges of racism around for any criticism whatsoever, they will soon find their favorite weapon is out of ammo.
