Read the WHOLE article before comments, please.
A dear friend of mine wrote this, and to him I
wow, lots of views, no comments
i wonder why?
It's obvious isn't it? Besides, people on both sides cry racism for everything, so the word has lost it's meaning. However, some movements and actions of certain people against Obama for example are being just simply racist, there's no two ways about it. To be ignorant and assume that not one person is against Obama because they're racist is naive.
If People READ the entire Blog? They will get the GIST of it. It has a message. And a GOOD one.
If racism is dead then why is Jimmy Carter, among many others, making it an issue???
I at how damn partisan and close minded it was though.
Statements like that. Honestly, to act like the Left is the only one to misuse the word racist is not only ignorant but again very partisan.
Good piece and I agree. Sadly, all this moronic rhetoric about racism where it hasn't applied has indeed had a boy-calling-wolf effect. I never took any of the racism calls personally because I am confident they don't apply to me. I have been saddened by the marginalization of true racism (the "knuckleheads" in the piece) and I have been saddened by the gutter-like rhetoric of it all.
Duhh, it was Jimmy Carter, he's a fucking idiot.
Aside from the obvious.
'Fucking idiot' -- you give him too much credit.
Simple. It's because that card has served them so well that they think it will continue to get them their way to STIFLE people from speaking.
The message overall in this thread? "We aren't falling for this shit anymore". We're gonna speak no matter WHO you are, where your from or what pigmentation is just becuse some childish party, or Politician has run out of options".
In other words? WE have grown beyond this. Some still have yet to GROW UP.
