Racism is no longer about race. Not when Bill Clinton was the first black president and Allen West is a racist for bringing fried chicken to a Congressional Black Caucus meeting. Liberalism is the new race, and it is a category that transcends and encompasses race. Liberalism defines race, allowing white liberals to be defined as black and black conservatives to be defined as white.

“...the battle for civil rights...”

'Civil rights' became an industry, and THEN by golly... there were careers to be made!

After 40+ years of affirmative action, billions of dollars of programs (and counting), putting the thing behind us is OUT OF THE QUESTION now. How can so many politicians, teachers, writers, media personnel, etc. rake in gargantuan salaries trumping up a lie that no longer exists if they are exposed??!!

The “boy who cried ‘wolf’” in modern times is the liberal who cried ‘racism’. They don’t have to think as hard, apparently, when anyone who disagrees with them can be dismissed as a racist. Has it lost its meaning? We know it has negative connotations but the specifics are getting a little blurry. If I’m opposed to high taxes, I’m a racist because tax money helps minorities (supposedly). It works like that.

Then there’s what’s happening on the ground.....

I’m 64, I remember the segregated water fountains and bathrooms. There was no black middle class.

Look around you now. You see many, many black families out for lunch at local restaurants. You see what they drive-the same cars middle class whites drive.

Twenty years ago, if you saw an interracial couple, the male would be black and the female white. Now you can see black females with white men.

‘Notice how criminal gangs are multi-racial now? And not just on TV.

I remember times when, if you saw blacks and whites together in any form, it was because they were thrust together by laws. Now what you see is by choice.

I don’t know how blacks can look around and not see that yes, there are obstacles, but whitey is not the one in their way. At some point, there should be a catharsis, an event or series of events that create a catharsis, a realization of the absurdity of continuing to wallow in a manufactured victimhood that is so culturally debilitating.

I don’t think that game-changing moment will occur during this election, there’s such an emotional investment in the first black President on the part of blacks.

But it will come soon.

Say what you will about Romney, but he went to the NAACP and he didn’t pander to them. That’s what has to happen more often.

Many blacks, like Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Star Parker, Angela McGlowan, Allen West, Reverend Peterson, Bill Cosby, and now Mia Love are attempting to tell their brothers and sisters that they have exchanged one plantation for another-that government dependency is the new plantation. The eureka moment will take place within this analogy, IMHO.

“There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.” - Booker T. Washington

I actually kicked a friend, real nice guy, to the curb after being a racist one too many times.

It sucks and bugs me to this day because otherwise he couldn’t be a nicer guy and someone I had fun drinking with.

But, he had no absolutely no conscience using that word in some of the most benign conversations many which had no possibility of race as even a nonsequitor topic, implication or ?????

Cuz I can’t figure it out.
