    Your right on the is / often.

    Do you believe the reverse could be true. playing the race card is often racism? I would think if you believe complaining about playing the racecard statement is true, then the reverse has to also sometimes be true.

    Sometimes the call of "race card" goes up anytime race is an issue. Just as many are too quick to play the race card, there are many far too sensitive cons who look for the race card to be played when it isn't. It's too the point that you're afraid to call actual racism.

    Is it ok to call this guy a racist? Or would that be overplaying the race card?
    Yes, this nut is a racist.

    A lot to wade through, amazed there was so much about it. Yes he is a racist, but more to the point he was convicted of witness intimidation.

    Yes. Most definitely it happens. But because it does happen on occasion, many choose to say that any time the racism is discussed or insinuated, many will knee-jerk in defense mode regardless of the discussion by decrying that the race-card was played and try to turn the tables by saying that they are playing the race card because they are racist themselves. It turns into a massive defense shield for racism by arguing about the semantics of playing the "race-card" rather than the topic itself.
