    However, an idea may or may not be racist depending on what's going on underneath but some of Dobbs' statements are just plain racist on their face.

    As an example:

    Idea: Black kids need to do better at school.

    Now if Tom Metzger says it he means black people are lazy and dumb.

    If some non-racist says it they probably mean that the school system and environment the kids are growing up in is not conducive to success at school.

    Same idea, different meaning.
