Racism is a thing of the past. Just look at the Chief Justice Roberts's Court and his beliefs that racism no longer exists in the United States. Blacks and other minorities no longer need protections to their right to vote nor affirmative action.
How trippy is this guy? What bubble does he live in? Let's just look at the recent racist news.
The Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice John Roberts strikes down affirmative action in Michigan, claiming it would be racist to take race into consideration where inequality is the question.
Cliven Bundy, becomes an instant hero to conservatives. They gush over the man who's a scofflaw for refusing to pay court-mandated grazing fees for his cattle. The "Right" couldn't get enough of him until he took again to the pulpit to lecture America about the "lazy Negro" and how the Black race would be better off as slaves. (His words, not mine).
Then when this draws outrage, some of the right wingnuts and spokespeople tone down their love of the crusty old cowboy outlaw. Not all, but some. And I'll even credit Sean Hannity from distancing himself, not totally, but partially, over Bundy's race remarks.
Notice I said some right wingnuts. That's because there's always the reliable Bill Kristol.
Within hours of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling's racist comments to his Black/Hispanic girlfriend (whom he's openly seeing despite his being married), the ever 'balanced' Kristol stuck up for Sterling, urging caution. Remember, like the Chief Justice, Kristol isn't sure that racism really does still exist.
Conservative pundit Bill Kristol on Sunday urged people to judge NBA team owner Don Sterling by his “deeds,” and not to “go hysterical over two or three sentences” where he tells his girlfriend to stay away from black men.
Okay, Bill, let's not get hysterical over a few insensitive if not outright racist sentences. Judge the man by his deeds you say. How's this set of deeds float your boat?
The racist comments purportedly made by Donald Sterling in the audio recording that surfaced Saturday via TMZ.com are the latest in a years-long string of racially-charged incidents linked to the real estate mogul.
In 2009, Sterling agreed to a $2.765-million settlement in a case that alleged discrimination against African-Americans, Latinos and others at apartment buildings he owned in Los Angeles County.
Are these the deeds you were asking us to use as judgment?
If this man is anything short of a racist you might need to look in the mirror and take an assessment of yourself. You're a spokesman for ultra right conservatives. Are you speaking for them now? If so, you're just like Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling and evidently Justice Roberts in having your head in the sand or up your ass. You're not seeing what the rest of the world knows is the truth. We have very little racial tolerance in the world, and the US is no exception. It would be much better for you and all of us if you'd use your platform to ease and ultimately someday erase racial inequality and hatred. Not fuel the fires with your ignorance.
