Once racism itself is buried, then we can retire the word. I'm afraid it is alive and well though.

Well said.

have you ever worked with someone when you were new to a job, and that person told you that basically 70% of the people who worked there were a-holes? then after you're there a while, you realize that it's not the other workers that are the a-holes, it's the one calling everyone a-holes. that's what we're seeing here. liberals have always been shameless self loathers, and now we can add a heaping teaspoon of racism into their cesspool.

There were and many would not be Republicans today. Many Republicans in the 1960's went the way of Goldwater. Goldwater won a number of states in the South that even Ike couldn't win in the 50's. Nixon had a race-baiting campaign around law and order (Sound familiar anyone) that included the race riots before and after the assassination of MLK. Storm Thurmond and several other Dixiecrats became Republicans. Dixiecrat voters also became Republicans. The Republican Party trumpeting this are neglectful of what they turned into.

I think we should too since racist is thrown around too much. I can agree. I hope you agree that we also need to know the definition is so we can clearly see what is and isn't. The problem with Trump is even Sen. Graham tonight h was a race-baiter once, now he says "I'm sure he didn't mean that."

I can agree to a point. The issue is what exactly is racist? Is it advertant acts or both aberrant and inadvertent acts? For example, is it racist to like and date minority women more than white women? If that is the case, this white male is racist towards women who share my ethnicity. It isn't that I think they are not as good, just I relate more. However I have seen similar things be racist.

I wish we could live in post race world but I was right about Obama, he brought the racists out of the woodwork. That said I said if he failed as President, we would never vote another black President and I think we could see that even if he "failed" only in the eyes of Republicans.

Since “conservatives” have no problem making common cause with true white racists, like Richard Spencer and David Duke, it’s only natural that they eventually feel no shame in their association and actually take pride in it.

“Conservatives” and alt-right racialists share their hatred of white liberals, whom they consider race traitors.

It makes it all simpler when “conservatives” drop all pretenses and show what they are at heart.

What would you prefer instead? Neonazi, hatemonger, white supremacist - give us a clue as to what you think would be correct.
