They make many wrong assumptions about conservatives:
That we’re all greedy (rich)
That we all hate gays
That we all hate minorities
That WE are the elites (they can’t possibly be because they don’t come from money)

I suppose that if ambition and success make me a greedy elitist, then I'm guilty. :-)

Truly, the only hardcore racists that I've met have all been Democrats. My wife's Aunt and Uncle (committed Dems, both of them) gave me the advice when my wife and I were buying a house to stay away from neighborhoods with lots of (quote) "Niggers. Because they're shiftless and will steal you blind.".

I live in a mixed neighborhood, and the only problem that I've had with anyone is with the 60s-remnant hippies that live next door to me, along with their six #$@%#%^&%^$ dogs that bark all the $#%%#$^ time.

My wife's friends (all Dems...all of them) sat up one evening at oue beach house not too long ago catagorizing all of the people that they hung out with by race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. They wanted to be sure that they had a good mix, and that they should "collect" (their quote, not mine) other races, genders, etc that "they didn't have yet".

All along I've been picking my friends based on common interests and whether or not I liked them....and to hear that I've had it wrong all this time.

I'm sure that there are Republican Racists out there, I just haven't met any of them yet.
