First and foremost is that I don't know of anyone conservative or liberal that think racism only exists in the south. I do know plenty of conservatives and almost every liberal I know that believe racism still exists everywhere. I have also met plenty of conservatives who believe that racism in post-modern America is myth. A lot of conservatives also postulate that while racism may still exist in very small numbers it has no effect on society at large. This is the crux of the issue. The conservative movement, and by your post, you also believe that racism no longer effects society in a negative way. This is fantasyland. There is institutional racism in this country at large. Every statiscal analysis points to this obvious conclusion.
The second assumption you make in your post is that somehow the size of a riot determines whether or not it is a riot. Whether it was 20 or 200 drunks does not matter. The main point is that at University that has a long history of racism that a number of students decided to protest an election result they didn't like based on racially motivated reasons. I do not know for a fact that only 20 people rioted and 2-300 watched but the fact that they just watched is disturbing in an of itself. To stand by silently while someone violently spews racially motivated hatred toward the recently re-elected President is supposed to make me feel better about the University of Mississippi? Hardly and in fact makes it even more disturbing to me.
The point is that racism exists everywhere. That being said the only violent racially motivated protest of the election result that I have heard occurred at place that has such a long and violent history of racial animosity is significant and should be reported.
You accept racism from Muslims against Jews. You libs are so full of Isht when it comes to Muslim bigotry you are smearing it on every post you make on the subjects of bigotry, Muslims, Israelis, Zionism and Jews.
Yes, in you all's book, racism IS fine!
Maybe Pete can answer this. I genuinely don't know the answer. Do European countries have these kinds of race issues? Does France have arguments like this over race? Are there race riots in the Netherlands? Does Germany tie race to poverty the way we do? Does Poland specifically tailor drug laws to target minority races like we've done here? Is America unique among the western world in this regard?
