  •  it means ethnicity becomes a handicapp (8+ / 0-)

    more winger linguistic jujitsu as the RW has flipped reality on its head where the problem in the country is no longer bigotry but is now ethnicity (read: race).  Heretofore, Progressives have held the long term effects of bigotry has hindered or handicapped minority students while the RW has adopted the rubric of "self responsibility"  This moves things along a bit as it reveals the true RW mindset:  bigotry does not handicap minority students; minority status is itself a handicap every bit as much as a missing limb.  Since it is a handicap itself, it relieves the bigots of any responsibility for the effects of their actions and beliefs
