  •  He's just saying what they're all thinking (10+ / 0-)

    He's too unsophisticated to put it terms that are suitable for the cocktail set or for the intellectuals they fathom themselves to be, but it's the same shit.  They run away because they imagine that racism is all about offense over impolite words and proscribed topics, and they'd never dare to be that uncouth.

    But it's like some people brought up in a diary or diaries the other day (sorry for imprecision as I'd like to give credit, but I've been too busy to retain details!): conservatism and racism by nature -- almost by definition -- go hand in hand.  When the status quo that is to be preserved is itself unjust, conservatives will never have a hand in changing it.  And since they want to think of themselves as good people, they'll never admit it, either.
