Not really. It doesn't take long to read one word.

[quote=nononsenseguy;32278261]I thought we had moved away from this some time ago, until Obama was elected and claims of racism were everywhere. Even to criticize his extreme Leftist policies is viewed as "racism" by the Left.

If I supported Herman Cain (which I did) I was still a "racist" for not supporting Obama! Of course to blacks, Herman Cain is an "Uncle Tom."

As another example, the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in self defense was blamed on Zimmermans "racisim." I guess he was just to let Martin kill him (which he surely would have done).
It was Eric Holder who sent his lackeys to Florida to stir up the "racist" issue in that case, after the police had already determined the shooting was indeed, self defense.

Obama is to blame for the way things are. He has taken us back about 70 years. Even Oprah is claiming racism is a problem again.

And what about these black thugs that are involved in this "game" of "Knock Out?" Are we to simply ignore this? Is it "racist" to think these young thugs should be in jail?[/QUOTE]


It isn't exclusive to black kids.

Many people right here on CD are labeled as racist when they make negative comments regarding a certain segment of a particular race. Don't know how many times I've been labeled a racist for making a comment regarding, for instance, thug behavior and violent crime amongst inner city blacks. Of course, to a liberal that means I dislike all black people.

Racism, and claims thereof, keep the world turning. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.
That's most likely your fault. There are ways to talk about those issues without sounding racist.

You are most likely are saying racist things if that's how people perceive the things you're saying. It may be unintentional or intentional.

It isn't important for the Democrat Party either.

Why should it be? It's not an important issue.

Why do we need racial harmony? You (generic "you"....not you personally) don't like me because of my race...FINE! You walk on your side of the sidewalk and i'll walk on mine and we'd do well not to bump shoulders. How hard can that be?

That's all the harmony we need.

When's the last time you talk to or polled a billion Africans to find how they feel about African-Americans? Like to see those poll results and the methodology you used?

I see there's a lot of twisted minds up here, who call themselves social conservatives or have such leanings. Like for someone to answer these questions honestly, whom ever calls themselves conservative. Were the slave masters conservative or liberal? Was the the antebellum South conservative or liberal? Were the founding fathers after boldly declaring all men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights before the world, but still kept human beings of African descent in slavery and whoís' successive government administrations, pursued as governmental policy, genocide against the native population; conservative or liberal? Answer these questions for me, then I'll know what you are; conservative or liberal.
