    The problem is liberals don't whine about "the race card", we just get accused of using it, it's usually conservatives who do, so when conservatives pull it, it's hilarious.

    If a Conservative were to do this about a Liberal Black Candidate the scatology would hit the fan but quick.

    The Stewart clip comes at about 5 Min. 25 Sec. into the video you will find if you follow the link.

    I actually liked everything Mr. Cain had to say except for his comments about Stewart, he makes a great deal of sense.
    Anybody who thought that was racist is at the very least unfamiliar with Stewart and at the most unfamiliar with racism.

    I missed the show and don't have audio on my lab computer. What were the supposedly racist comments?

    I guess you forgot about Obama's 'race card' comments during the election.. you know the 'They'll tell you to be afraid of me... that I don't look like those Presidents on the dollars'... and his 'oh, btw... did we mention? He's black!'

    Not s single conservative ever used those statements, other than to say Obama said them.

    Stewart used a southern growly voice and made jokes at the expense of perceived idiocy of shortening bills dramatically in page length to appease common voters. Amos & Andy, apparently, but I think it's a slight reach.

For all the talk about what "goes over peoples head" apparently the actual topic of this thread and the race card pulling by conservatives was over your head since you completely flubbed why republicans were being said to be calling the race card in this instance.

    Glass houses hugh. Examine how well things go over your own head before you start commenting on others.
    "My ilk"? I'm a centrist who leans conservative/libertarian. I don't see any of "my ilk" in this thread, do you? I pointed out the fallacy in liblady's argument, you know with things like facts and the truth. I don't live in a glass house, I call a spade a spade - always have, always will. Maybe before jumping to an invalid conclusion yet again, you could try applying things like context and common sense?

    Is that really racist though? Or is that John Stewart doing what John Stewart normally does?

    Living Memory is very subjective in that it only applies for as long as the individual making the statement has been...well, alive to bear witness to such accounts. I certainly wasn't around during the 30's, 40's, and 50's, and although I was born in the early 60's I have no "living memory" of that era. But we learn from history either through academic teachings or from reading. As such, I am very much away of the injustices brought upon Blacks and other minorities in this country by both southern White Conservatives AND their northern Blue-Dog Democrats.

    Point is, racism is no more a strictly southern thang any more than free-love was indiginous to just those who lived in San Francisco during the 60's. After all, Woodstock was in New York, was it not? And not all lynchings took place in Alabama, Georgia or Mississippi. To be frank, racism exists wherever there is hate and total mistrust of someone who is different in appearance than you are. The only way to wipe it out if for YOU to be willing to learn about cultures outside your racial boundaries and extend a helping hand. Are you so willing?
