Perhaps we need a new definition of the word racism because it is now bandied about in a frivolous manner by race baiters who've never undergone its scourge. All we need to do is look at the history of racism in this country particularly in the South to get a real perspective of the pain suffered by blacks during that dark period. Those who underwent that torment are for the most part deceased but their pain has been exploited by modern day race-baiting demagogues who've benefitted by the changes in our civil rights and in the hearts of most Americans. According to dictionary.com, racism is described as: "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." Another meaning given is: "hatred or intolerance of another race or other races." In 2008, America elected a black president, Barack Hussein Obama which should have been an indication that we are now living in a post-racial time but progressives in politics, the mainstream media and the entertainment industry have now defined racism to mean any criticism at all of their chosen black icon or his agenda.

The political power base that supported segragation of the races, were the members of the KKK and fought AGAINST the civil rights movement from the end of the Civil War until 1965 were ALL DEMOCRATS.
