It is still not unusual to hear the N word, espically when Obama comes on Faux news at the local bar. In my expericne every far right winger I know well enough to know is racist, often considering themselves post racist. They say stuff like libs are all the racist etc, but in reality...
    Are you telling me even the black conservatives are racist against Obama, or just the white ones?

    I was simply talking about the people around me. I am not in a diverse area.

    Personally, I don't find anything wrong with racism until one starts exploiting or killing the "inferior" groups.
    There is no end to exploitation of "inferior groups". That is why they are inferior. So as long as they get to live, everything's okie dokie?

    Not where I live, and Rmoney took my county with 60% of the vote.

    Thank you, Rocket.

    I always enjoy receiving praise from my Betters.

    My office is smack dab in the middle of my government center. From it I can see the fed complex, the local courts/government/popo, the offices of our congressman/senator and numerous state and local offices. I can see most every protest that goes on. One day I saw a black guy on the steps of the courthouse with lots of black faces in the crowd and walked down to see what they were protesting. That usually happens whenever a black person gets killed by the cops and I had not heard of a killing recently. It turned out it was my first encounter with my local Tea Party protesting Obamacare.
    What city is that and when. Surely, an event like that would have made the news somewhere.

    Without a doubt. That's why it's not a BS assumption, but basically correct.

    You ceratainly implied that the TP has more than the average number of racists, it is not my contention that absolutely no racists exist in the TP, simply that it is not, in general, a racist organization. I dislike most of Obama's polices yet I am neither in the TP nor a racist.
    You read your own implications into it, my friend. We agree that it is not, in matter of principle, racist. I know that you are not a racist, or in the TP.

    I only contend that there are racists, who dislike Obama because he's black, hiding under the banner of the TP.

    Oh I have recognized his eltist superiority. His name is Gardener, after all.

    Well, it would not be a first for me. I see them here every day. They call his a Kenyan socialist among other things.
