    white, male jackasses realize that a minority cannot be racist (even if they are President or a SC Justice)To be racist you have to have the benefit of the dominant culture. White males having only 95% of the power in our society today, rather than 99.44% of the power does not constitute the subjugation of white males.

    Why are the wingnuts so good at teh stoopud? Limbaugh & Hannity are the brains of the operation and both are college drop-outs.

      A word to the wise ain't necessary, it is the stupid ones who need all the advice.

      or whether you call it righteous anger, or even just a determination to catch up ... it's something they are deeply, deeply afraid of.  It's, well, uppity.

      Bigotry is unfair to individuals and morally wrong regardless of who has power societywide.  To say that a judge's bigotry is irrelevant because, although she is in a position of power, her race is not, flies in the face of justice.

          Whether or not you trick up "racism" with a defintion that depends on power structures in society, it's the same thing in practice: bigotry.
