    I'm not taking any sides, just provoking debate. I will be voting, however :P
    I notice you voted "a good deal are racist" which would indicate that you're incapable of having a rational discussion on the issue, as you have already formed an emotionally-based and biased opinion with no grounding in reality.

    For once, you folks on the far left should remain open to the possibility that people can have honest disagreements with you without being racists, homophobes, imperialists, rednecks, etc.

    Blacks tend to be very racist in some areas. what passes for leadership in the Black circles of power are almost required to be racist.

    racism is a term that the left uses to end an argument they have lost. They scream racist like a squid squirts ink--its a cloud and coverup designed to allow the beaten lib squid to retreat.

    being called racist might be something one has earned. More likely than not it comes from pointing out some uncomfortable facts to those who enable the pathologies of Black culture that is deleterious to Blacks and America as a whole

    No more than the democrats and any other political party which is on the fringe.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Now both sides have racists. Not exactly news. Both are fringe.

    I agree that both sides have racists. However, the question was asked about the republican party.

    Racism gets a raw deal anyway. If you didn't laugh at the "nappy-headed hos" comment from Don Imus, you have no sense of humor. Even black comedians were saying "that was damn funny".
