    Has anyone tried linking him to an online dictionary? Can you imagine the days where he would actually physically get up and check it himself?

    Re: Racists?

    So let me get this straight bringing up the race card by saying "You dont like them because you are black/white/brown/yellow/etc" means you are a racist? Im not connecting the dots here at all.

Racism and race baiting don't have to be the same thing to both be bad.
    Whether race is relevant is in the eye of the beholder. (And if race is relevant, that's a far cry from racist speech, BTW.) If you're white, I think it'd be hard for you to judge the authenticity of a reaction by a person of color. To a degree, racism is like sexism. The speaker can sincerely mean no harm, not know enough to realize he's about to give offense, etc. and the listener can still genuinely be hurt by what is said.

    The racism of my youth, as in for example when the Chicago cops executed Huey Long and so forth, is largely (but not entirely) a thing of the past. Except for corners of the internet, most people value their jobs, social standing, etc. not to say out loud in public the sort of things that I grew up hearing.

    That does not mean we now live in the land of unicorns and butterflies. Like any other form of evil, racism still exists.

    I say most likely the race card players are or they are liars or they are just ****en retarded. Ever heard of the saying "he who smelt it dealt it"? Basically it means that the person calling attention to the problem is most likely the source of it.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Exactly. Which is why those who always talk about the race card are always the one's who use it.

    Simply, shortly, and sweetly, the answer is no.

    I think that the vast majority are more racist, then the people they attempt to blame of being.

    Re: Racists?

    I think there are people who cry racism when there is no need to ... and I don't just mean black people. There are plenty of whites who do it in defense of other races. Personally, I think it has more to do with having a low EQ than it does "racism". A "racist" hates people because of their race... I don't believe the majority of people who "pull the race card" do it because they "hate" the race they're accusing of being racist.

    That said .... racism is alive and well in our country today. Sadly.
    Silly poor people
