    I lived in Utah for 10 years. I didn't notice conservatives in Utah being any more racist than liberals in, say, Philly.
    I've spent a lot of time in the Provo/Salina area over the last few years and, if the conservatives there (and there are a lot of them) are racists, they certainly hide it well.

    MeThinks some people need to be more discriminating with whom they associate... or would discriminating against racists be wrong.

    Well, I do know a guy who based most of his views on what Americans think by a couple of guys who hung around a liquor store near where he lived.

    IMO, those few people who believe bigotry is the most prevalent cause of opposition to Pres. Obama are, in fact, part of the reason for continued bigotry in the US.

    Very true. If you simply assume bigotry on the part of someone, or on the part of a group as a whole, it will continue to be an issue no matter if you're right or not . . . because you MAKE it an issue.

    That, of course, is a form of bigotry in and of itself.

    Uhh...

    Yes?

    It's my opinion, of course it makes sense to me.

    Doesn't matter to me if anyone else thinks it makes sense, as it's not their opinion.

    They may either agree or disagree, in part or in whole.

    Of course you have a right to your opinion but would you mind explaining what led you to that opinion?

    To me that would like having an opinion that if you like vanilla ice cream....you are probably not a good bowler??????

    So.....If you ignore real bigotry ....I guess it will just go away by itself??

    You add nothing to the discussions here.
