    How about "angry black man syndrome," like Al Sharpton?
    What about it? No one is claiming Sharpton is a good guy, nor that he does not race bait, nor that he does not play racial politics. What people have pointed out is that words have meanings. What you have failed to do is show in any way that Sharpton actualy fits the defintions of racist, nor have you made any effort to do so.

    If we're going to use that definition, then people like Michael Savage, Newt, Rush, and others are probably not racist. If Al, Jesse, and Louis are treated in such a way, then so should the other three.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Only partisan hacks call them racist? So why all the concern? I have defended Limbaugh more times than I care to remember as not being racist, sexist maybe, but he is no racist.

    Then don't be a partisan hack?
    (1) You're making no sense.

    (2) Let's take Michael Savage for example. He may be as much a racial stirrer as Al, yet he's typically considered a racist by liberals.

    (3) I am no partisan hack and you know it.

    If Al is not a racist along those lines, then we need to fix the mistakes of recklessly calling certain white people "racists," when they were merely "race-baiting." That would scratch off quite a few white people from the list.

    I'll agree with your litmus test, if you acknowledge that it should be applied fairly to white people as well, who are currently accused of being racist.

    Al Sharpton

    That golden throated Al Sharpton quote sure fits the definition.... or was this part of a comedy act?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
