    ...to exhibit openly racist behavior are the quickest to deny that they are racist (often with open hostility), though they are woefully unable to prove us wrong, and usually end up proving us right?  Many a time they are quick to point the finger at someone else, to deflect people from what we know to be the obvious when it comes to them.

      and act like they are victims of "reverse racism" for having their own bigotry pointed out to them. Much like the poor folks against gay marriage who are having their rights trampled because they don't get to treat homosexuals like second class citizens anymore. It's just awful that they have to face public scorn for their opinions, it's the equivalent of slavery!! Minus the forced labor, the selling of human beings, the rampant abuse, the tearing apart of families....
