    witness the push back against Jimmy Carter last week when he made his remarks about racism in the culture today.

    I got into a discussion about it with a friend on facebook, and one of her friends got REALLY huffy and defensive.  

    My point: not everyone who is against the President's actions is racist, but everyone who is racist is against the President's actions.  It's up to the NON-racist ones to distance themselves clearly from the racist ones, if they don't like be called racist.  That means, teabaggers who aren't racist should call out the ones with the racist signs and slogans.  Otherwise, they're just as culpable.

    NOT responding to such an email is similarly a tacet approval.

    Join us in the Grieving Room on Monday evenings to discuss mourning and loss.
