    except for when it's freedom of minorities, women and gays/lesbians to publicly express any sentiment that doesn't fall exactly in line with leftist ideology. Then it's time for the liberals to truly prove how tolerant there are by calling Michelle Malkin a slope, Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom, Michael Steele an oreo cookie, Sarah Palin Caribou Barbie and Laura Ingraham a slut.

    Seriously what are you smoking? The current collection of rabble is the latest and greatest in fascism and totalitarianism since the 1940's.

    Heh, in this day and age whites who aren't conservative or who support Obama are called "self loathing whites", or "white guilt".

    Conservatives throw around the "white guilt" card wayyyyy more than any liberal says "uncle tom"

I mean after the civil war, er excuse me the war of northern aggression, racism was banished to Alabama, MS, GA, LA TN, and the Carolinas where only inbred, barefoot, bucktoothed southern redeck, hillbilly, backwater yokels display it right?
    The story itself may not have been racist - but the float in the picture certainly was.

    As you imply, racism does occur everywhere - and it will always be there as long as anyone is different. What you are not realizing, however, is that it is in the Deep South to a much greater degree than elsewhere. Just because there is some racism in some places does not justify the much greater degree of racism in other places.

    And btw - the "War of Northern Aggression" line - I used that many times in my youth in Mississippi (and yes, I was a racist then). Very few whites Down South will agree that it was a war against slavery. But one wonders how many of them have read Mississippi's Declaration of Secession:

    A Declaration of the Immediate Causes which Induce and Justify the Secession of the State of Mississippi from the Federal Union

    In the momentous step, which our State has taken of dissolving its connection with the government of which we so long formed a part, it is but just that we should declare the prominent reasons which have induced our course.

    Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery - the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product, which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions, and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition, or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin.
    (boldface mine)

    The Declaration goes on with similar language, but you get the idea.

    One of us knows both sides of the issue. It ain't you.

    I don't disagree with your comment or that of Lord Planar.

    imo, Obama has done more to divide this country than any other President.

    I agree that whoever is behind the float has a right to display it.
    It's the conservatives reaction to Obama which is dividing the country.

    I suspect history will regard it that way.

    I don't think racism is more prevalant in the south. The north is just much better at hiding it.

    Also you claim the float was racist? Why was it racist?

    As I just pointed out elsewhere, you are comparing a molehill to a mountain. If one or a few liberals say something they shouldn't, that does NOT justify opening the floodgates of racist crap that we see from so many on the Right.

    I'm from NH and that line was meant as a joke in response to Glen's ridiculous post about the racist south.

    ...whereas conservatives are becoming more likely to stand for the freedom to discriminate, freedom to be prejudicial, to ridicule others. Who is it that opposes equal pay for women, who is equal rights for LGBT's (including marriage), against the international treaty for the rights of the disabled (which we helped author, btw)...and who is for the ability to fire any worker for any reason whatsoever, including race, religion, ethnicity?

    This one statement sums it up: Generally speaking, liberals embrace the different, whereas conservatives dislike and distrust the different.
    Liberals use the difference too much as a separating line or support beam for their viewpoint. The less credence you give a subject, the less meaning and effect it has. I would bring it up when it's severe enough to be warranted, otherwise it needs to be ignored more for the stupidity that it is.

    One or a few?

    I'm glad I was drinking anything when I read that as I likely would have spit it out.

    Liberals have institutionalized racism in the nation.

    One or a few....


    hahahahah
