    And I can't argue with this. The signs indicate something other than looking at Obama's policies.

    I think a person who has seen the signs or read the news would be hard pressed to argue there is NO racism in the tea party.

    Stereotyping is not racism.

    Hey, that may explain the reason I chose to be educated. I use to think I was a conservative, but then I decided that I don't like conservatism...or liberalism...or any other type of ism. Isms clutter free thinking.

    I read something the other day that made the claim of a major discovery regarding liberalism in America.

    According to the conservative author of the article. It seems that it's virtually impossible to solve the murder of a liberal. Yep. It's been discovered that there's no defining difference in their DNA...and they have no dental records.

    Gosh, maybe there is something to subscribing to an Ism.

    I'm actually dedicating this post to Navy...I'm sure he'll appreciate it more than any other conservative in the DP forum.

    Sure it is if you're faulting him for the economy, the war, Benghazi, you name. If you can't define his policies and why you oppose them, then you're lamblasting him for being black.

Someone else looks at the same picture, and he sees President caricatured as a savage from some African jungle. Now, whichever was the actual intention, is it a lighthearted (and dumb) joke, or is it a deliberate and venomous insult? I don't know. It depends.

    Why don't we just ignore all the stupid sign-waving and slogan-screaming by who-knows-who, and focus on what a given tea party organization is trying to do, or what Barack Obama is actually doing - and judge things and public figures on their own merits?

    Nope. The word "racism" has a specific meaning. Might want to look it up.
