If you need to disclaim being a racist, a bigot, or for that matter a republican in public, what are you?
I disclaim being a republican although that was me way back and still is according to those who know me. In fact some call me one of the last of the real Lincoln Republicans, this is not true, many still do not believe in nouveau republicanism although they are few and far between.
PS live in Columbia, SC along side Congressman Joe Wilson or Senator Demint, or State Senator McConnell if you want a primer on recognition of Embedded racism. It is not about race here, it is all about race. You have hundreds if not thousands of Sources to check on here.
And remember when someone needs to stand up and shout "I am not a Racist" he believes in Heritage. The second lesson I learned in the Marine Corps was this, If you call it Heritage, then he can get away with almost anything.
And why does the Alpha or the Omega make no sense to so many here? Read the posts again and reread. Where are the Leaders? Who are the Followers? Face yourselves head on, I actually see some of the huddling masses start to open their eyes. How long will it last till the Obama, or Clinton or the Democraps or other comments without constructive thought come back on line? quick, reinforce each other, someone might go liberal or even go back to being an American and not a Real American.
This has been a lesson on What A Normal American might see here but aimed at the Constituency present. Someone out there take command and lead them out of the woods for they know not what they do.
I think Mainstream Americans are beginning to realize what a mistake electing Obama has been. The groundswell of dissent has started and will only continue to increase. Only fools will agree with people Obama surrounds himself with. Haven't you had enough of Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers a convicted terrorist, Van Jones, the criminal entity Acorn, 57 Czars?
Geez, Roger...the Boston Globe!!! You gotta be kidding me.
That rag is so biased...they probably made that shit up.
Calling someone you do NOT know a racist is as serious an attack on that persons character as anything that has been said to you.
Sanctimony is a form of elitism, your forte'
In regard to prejudices, I find most people working to build, support and love their families could by and large care less the color of a persons skin.
Where I find the disconnect is in cultural differences.
They exist, and more missunderstanding occurs there.
I am sure you know that, but that perspective does not support your "race card" defense.
bob & weave...........
BTW-I am claiming you have issues concerning race based on your preoccupation concerning the topic.

Would have to agree with Jeff. A-O it seems you have only joined this group this month. I don't actually know any of them personally, but this POTUS forum has probably been around for about a year, so am finally beginning to get a sense of who is which.Quote:
As one of the "liberals" here, I believe you paint with much too broad a brush. Personally, I do not believe that most, or even a large percentage, of evangelicals are racist. I also do not believe that most, or even a large portion of conservatives are racist.
I don't think that someone objecting to being called a racist automatically confirms that they are a racist. If you called me a liar, I'd object to that, too.
If the right-leaning people you've met are all jerks, you may have erroneously assumed the converse: that the jerks are all conservatives. Being a jerk is probably the most non-partisan trait there is :-) It happens all over the place.
