    Well first of all I did not use or pick anything. You are as usual mistaken. You should chalk it up to stupidity on your part as that would be more truthful.

    You are so paranoid and stuck on "everyone is racist against black people" you insinuate black people are even racist against Obama if they don't tow his policy line. You see racist comments in comments that are not a never were racist. How ignorant and mentally disabled is that kind of thinking?

    It would appear that I owe you an apology. In reading back through a few of your posts (admittedly to find ammunition to support my guess that you were bigotted) I read where you stated that you are a black man.
    If this is true, I was way off base with my "Spade" complaint & offer my apology for "Shooting From The Hip" at a target I had not researched enough to accuse.
    Do what you wish with my apology, but I extend it to you sincerely.
    In my defense, there has been so much thinly veiled racism regarding opposition to Obama that perhaps your "Paranoid" accusation towards me isn't totally unfounded.

    Thank you.

    Please do not confuse bigotry or political posturing for racism. It weakens the weight of the word when it is real. Like conservatives constantly being called "Nazi's."

    I use the term bigotry & racism almost interchangeably. What is the difference?

    Bigotry is a stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from your own.

    Racism on the other hand...

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.


    We all have our own bigotry's, this is not inherently racist although it can contribute to one's racism.

    I accept your definitions but would say that I think most people use the terms interchangeably.

    I don't agree. I think people use the term "racist" to loosely would be more accurate.

    Look at the Obama opposition racist pole. That should fill in the blanks pretty clearly.

    What does the word "Spade" refer to in that phrase you used?
