  •  Nope you said I charged racism. (0+ / 0-)

    "Explaining things by way of a racial lens
    is not the same thing as being racist."

    I was not. I was pointing out that it is racial stereotyping by labeling all black republicans as bad people who were, literally, in service to some white overlord.

    My (black GOP) brother in law would disagree- as do I. We are not some philosophically monolithic "collective".

    •  Next time, you might just want to come out (0+ / 0-)

      & say what you want to say, instead of trying to imply it in some sort of smug way, because your initial message did not come through.

      You actually implied that someone was being racist for explaining things in terms of race.

      For the future, think about how your turns of phrase impact the reader. Precision & clarity are your friends.  Explain, don't bait.

        I said you were stereotyping from a racial perspective. Saying all conservative or GOP blacks were this or that because they were black and conservative, ergo "bad" because they did not automatically adhere to the liberal Democratic party line. . I never ever accused you of racism. Check your own stuff.

        •  How was I stereotyping (0+ / 0-)

          when I said that one sentence?  Are you confusing me with the OP?

          •  You are correct, my bad (0+ / 0-)

            I was responding accidentally to the other post. My point was not to "You actually implied that someone was being racist for explaining things in terms of race."

            But rather say that the poster said: ""Explaining things by way of a racial lens
            is not the same thing as being racist."

            I never said anyone was racists, just painting with an extremely large brush his/her own opinion about the (in many cases incorrect) motivations of black conservatives.
