    I doubt Obama feels oppressed because an 82 year old $500 a year police commissioner in Wolfeboro, NH called him a naughty name.

    By the way, I'm a white woman living in NH. Can you share with me what are all these powers I have, eco?

    He used race as a pejorative. As someone in the majority power, that qualifies as racism because it helps to perpetuate societal level injustice against minorities.

    No, my husband would frown on that.

    But if we whites hold all of the power in NH, please tell me what these powers are so I can take advantage of them.

    What minorities sufferered as a result of his perjorative? Please be specific. You seem to think he was oppressing people in his little town. I haven't heard of any such accusations, except from you. Are you a minority living in Wolfeboro who was oppressed by him? If so, what happened?

    When someone in the govt engages in racist behavior, it undermines the perception of a fair govt and undermines its' credibility. Everyone is harmed by that.

    You already do that plenty.

    You equate real racism (from the majority power) with socially meaningless racial bigotry (basically, name calling) by the minority. This has the effect of passively denying the existence of real racism. It ignores history. It ignores the sociological impacts of real racism. It ignores ALL of the social aspects of a social construct.

    In that false equivalence, you accomplish a few things.

    1. You deny real, systemic, racism.
    2. You deny the history of racism in this country.
    3. You deny the lingering affects of past racism.
    4. You deny the current impacts of real racism that still exists in this country.
    5. You demonize blacks, as if they have ever done to us what we have done to them.
    6. You belittle an understanding of what racism really is and what it really means.
    7. You equate having ones feelings hurt with a lifetime of injustice in every aspect of ones life.

    You do all of these things, as you help to prop up real racism in America with your false equivalence resulting from an incomplete understanding of racism as a social construct.


    You might not be conscious of this. If not, I suggest you consider the intellectual weight of the above and reconsider your concept of what racism really is and what it really means.

    So no list of these powers I supposedly have here in NH, and no evidence that the man in Wolfeboro oppressed anyone.

    Got it.

    I'm sorry if the concept of racism is beyond your grasp. It means more than name calling. Good luck and good day.
