    Quit the martyrdom routine. Nobody called you a racist. You introduced race into a discussion of taxes. It was unnecessary and foolish.

    RACE was introduced in this thread by Turtle. That is a fact. Of course a fellow warrior of the libertarian right will be excused as he prostrates himself before the same altar worshipping the same gods and guzzling the same kool-aid.

    No you are trying to stifle my comments based on claims that I am Bringing "race" into the issue. everyone else can see the point I was making. and we can go back and find all the instances of you accusing conservatives of being racist for doing things such as opposing affirmative action

    lefties have a habit of trying to shame those who don't buy their bs with charges of racism. when I mentioned that affirmative action allowed "INFERIOR" black students to gain admission ahead of more qualified white or asian students I was accused of saying all blacks are inferior to whites and asians

    Yes. You did bring race into the discussion.
    Yes. The point you were making was obvious. I understood it completely and totally.

    I do not remember accusing you of being a racist for simply opposing affirmative action. I accused you of being a complete and total hypocrite since you found a way to condemn affirmative action based on race but are an advocate of affirmative action based on family connections and legacy admissions. Please get that straight.
