    It is similar to asking should a person who belongs to a group that is against illegal immigration be allowed to run for sheriff? Yes, its up to the voters to decide if the person gets hired.

    I rest my case.

    As for the racist clansman running for office, he isn't going to get elected. Get real.
    When are people going to admit that complaining about the race card is often pure racism?

    One of the more absurd statements I've read lately.

    Yep. And all of those who believe in a strong central government like Abraham Lincoln are Republicans. It's those pesky Democrats that keep bleating about States Rights and threatening Secession again! Oh wait a minute ... you mean the political landscape has changed and those folks are now Republicans? Rick Perry is a Republican? Wanting to dismantle the central government is now a Republican idea? Huh! Go figure.

    That would mean black people would be voting overwhelmingly for Democrats if that was the case. What's that? You say they ARE voting overwhelmingly for Democrats? Guess it must be true that things have changed, then.

    Actually it isn't.

    The “Ic” Factor : The New Yorker

    Now you should know that this is a longer article than you'd normally find on any of the Murdoch publications, but I'd suggest you read it. It's actually worthwhile.

    My favorite part is the line where the author says that calling the Democratic Party the Democrat Party is a lot like calling Israel 'the Zionist entity'. It's as if by not calling them by their correct name, they'll cease to exist.

    When people stop playing the card when there is no racism involved.

    Brilliant. If we simply don't talk about race issues then racism doesn't exist.

    Maybe if we just stop talking about Meth as a problem and it will just simply go away.

    Didn't imply that. If you were following I was responding to W's post of "When are people going to admit that complaining about the race card is often pure racism?"
    Maybe I took it wrong. IMO, it is saying if someone states someone stance is playing the "race card", that person is a racist. I disagree. Stating someone is playing the race card may be justified and may not be a racist comment.

    I was being someone sarcastic. So are you agreeing with the statement that Wiggins made?

    He said is "often" racist. Not "IS" racist. And yes I do agree with that.
