    Some on this site are hung up on race

    How about?

    Some on this site are hung up on equality?
    Some on this site are hung up on civil rights?
    Some on this site are hung up on social justice?
    Some on this site are hung up on democracy?

    Of course they are - it's a bloody left wing blog. And if there weren't people reminding us everyday of the subtle and pervasive forms of racism then it wouldn't be a left wing site anymore.

      Accepted about Gay people or any other minority or for that matter even as insignificant as saving some spotted Chipmunk, and no one would ever say anything like that, but oh boy.  You know what's hilarious?  Race is my very least favorite thing to actually talk about.  I wish I didn't have to ever again.

        A while back a commenter (I think it was Angeld but forgive me if I'm wrong) said words to the effect: why do you guys keep whining about race?

        Imagine the same said of sexism or homophobia. Multiply hiderated of course.

        Some people just don't get the basics.
