Racism has not been "used as a club to beat on others of a different political ideology". It is and should be used as a club to beat on obvious racists.

Of course it is - remember Conservatives are all racists (along with a list of other things. As I recall, alt-right is your favorite).

So you think that all conservatives a racists? Interesting ........ I thought that just certain ones are.  Also ............ I never once referred to all conservatives as "alt-right".  Quote me if you claim otherwise.

Honesty contributes a great deal to discussion. Game playing is a detriment.

 

What do you think of these words that Matias said in reference to a student who reacted in the way described: 

 

Matias says. “How can someone who says they’re colorblind—they don’t see race at all, race is not a real thing—be having an obviously visceral experience, shaking, defensive, crying? If it’s nothing, why are you having a reaction to it?”

I'd say the crier needs help.

Yes, the "crier" certainly needs help .......... help getting over his racism.  Thanks for pointing that out.

I'd say in growing up.

 

Sure is funny that when racism is mentioned to a racist, they protest louder than non-racists do. A telltale sign.

Well, some folks just aren't all consumed with the "racism" obsession. They are happy to through life with a smile on their face and their friends (of any color) by their sides.

Hands at their sides giving a racist sign?  Oh, and commenting on any posting pointing out or speaking of racism?

More game playing.

Seems like going personal to dodge the truths I reveal about other posts when I observe and comment. What I have or have not done in the past nor what I am doing or not doing today in any way relates to your inaccurate comments about discrediting racism.

A good point. When one constantly swims in a sea of hatred they no longer are able to recognize it for what it is.  Considering no one posts the word hate and hatred more than you, I would agree!  Ya see, another "good point". You may be right. Some obsess over it - I observe and comment.  And deny, and cover for, and promote and distract.  If you just observed, you wouldn't be the fist poster to rush to most relavent topic and deny the racism exists and attack the poster.  It appears your obsession is to discredit racism, even attacking those who raise the topic as being racist. No, I just observe and comment.

You are coming up with great definitions and quotes lately.  If you actually read the links to information others post, you'd see most aren't mine, but thanks anyway.....Sorry if I gave you undeserved credit.  No problem, it makes up for the missed opportunities....Smiley Tongue

That's a fascinating fairy tale about right wing politically motivated prevaricators living in the alternate reality....

There is no doubt but that there is racism out there. Sadly, that reality has been used by some as a club to beat on others of a different political ideology - as an example Conservatives have been called racist purely based on their ideology which, in reality, has nothing to do with race - except to those who consider seeing people as people as racist.
