    Why does the GOP only seem to be concerned about racism when it involves protecting a white guy or attacking a minority?

    We have this charge of a potential Justice being a racist...
    http://www.usmessageboard.com/current-events/113672-republican-senators-blast-court-nominee-for-remarks-about-alito.html

    ...and there were the charges that future Justice Sotomayor was a racist.
    Conservatives react to historic Supreme Court nominee by smearing Sotomayor as "racist," "bigot" | Media Matters for America

    We did have the GOP accusing somebody of a high tech lynching of a black man, but that was a charge levied against a black woman and her supporters

    If the GOP is so concerned with racism, have they embraced former GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman's apology?

    It is the GOP tactic of reflection and projection

    They take whatever issue they are vulnerable on and project it on their opposition. That is how we get the "Obama is a racist" and "Sotomayor is a racist" rants.

    GOP runs record deficits....they project it to "Obama is running deficits"

    More like absurd beyond the waste of energy.

    But, then again, both you and Nellyboy specialize in the absurd.
