"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Stating facts is a far cry from smearing but then you're obfuscating.
FYI obfuscating is defined as: 1. to confuse, bewilder, or stupefy. 2. to make obscure or unclear: to obfuscate a problem with extraneous information.
Now you know what you were doing is called.
I doubt that Jon Stewart was being racist, however, what this brings up in my mind is the problem of race relations in this country. We have horrible race relations IMO, due to many people white America not wanting to talk about what occurred and wanting to ignore the past as well as the present-day effects that slavery and racial discrimination has had on black America. Also the fact that there are some black Americans who construe everything as racist. Add this to a government that was built on classism and racism, even going to far as to play a major role in the near-extermination of the indigenous population, and you've got yourself a prime situation for bad race relations in a country.
"And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."
