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.

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.

"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"

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.
