    and copied a bunch of links. My 14 year old grandson is bi-racial, and one of his "friends" on Facebook just posted the zombie lie about "where is the outrage about black on black crime, and why doesn't Al Sharpton ever talk about that?"

    The problem was how to give him the ammunition- he knows his Mom monitors his Facebook stuff but doesn't want us in his business too much. So- ironically, and sadly, I was able to bring it up to him after a couple of similarly clueless bullshit comments were posted right here on dailykos this morning.

      The meme that won't die on this site that the Right is Racist does tend to erase the problems we have with white liberals. I see the same thing with white folks saying that the Zimmerman verdict is just an indication that the South or Florida hasn't changed, which erases all the problems going on outside the South.

      I feel bad that that young man has to deal with that bs from social media, but at least he has folks at his back ready to discreetly arm him with facts.
