  •  No. That's not what Shaeffer said. (11+ / 0-)

    He never once said that every criticism was because of the color of his skin.

    He said that the color of the president's skin caused a lot of people to treat him differently, and if you can't see the truth of it, that's on you.

    He said there are a lot of racist people. He didn't say all people are racists.

    A lot of the reaction to this president IS racist. That is undeniable. But nobody has said that ALL of the criticism is racist, so that's a strawman.
