    Arken's response is the usual "why do minorities see racism under every rock" nonsense. Perhaps we should publish a dictionary of racist dogwhistles right here on Dkos for the uninformed to be enlighted.

    It reminds me of those who denied that the things being said about Michelle Obama during the primaries and general election campaign were racist dogwhistles. Or that the Watermelon patch on the White House lawn photo that emerged shortly after the inauguration were racially offensive..

    Arken should understand that those who have suffered the brunt of racist dogwhistles KNOW when one is being injected into the nation's bloodstream. It is not a figment of their imagination.

      Amazing how you know what I'm thinking better than I do because I thought I was just saying that I personally didn't see any racism. I'm still waiting for someone to show me where the racism is in the statements.

        There is no debate with the "it is racist/sexist/homophobic if any person feels that it is" argument.  I can see possible sexism in the description but it seems racism is in the eye of the beholder (and beyond questions).
