David Nicholson don't like black people.

White Americans feel (more or less correctly) that the battles have been won and that blacks enjoy the same opportunities they do. And while they may not voice their concerns publicly, they wonder (and who can blame them?) why so many black men are in prison or on parole, why so many black children are born out of wedlock, and why even middle-class black kids don't do as well on standardized tests as whites.

It's going to take a lot more than a 10-point platform, and speeches on the Mall, to change the realities that lead to the perception that maybe black people aren't quite good enough.

The above quote is from a Washington Post Editorial... an excellent example of a white person refusing to understand or acknowledge the plight of African Americans. A perfect illustration for a large public demonstration like the Millions More Movement .

Even with all the problems that assail the black community many whites still would like to believe that the problem of racism and the legacy of slavery has been mostly if not entirely erased. I think that most want to believe this NOT as proof that African Americans are inferior to whites but just so that they can feel that the lack of progress for African American isn't their [or their country's] fault. That is a racist attitude.

It is like saying... I am not going to say that "why so many black men are in prison or on parole, why so many black children are born out of wedlock, and why even middle-class black kids don't do as well on standardized tests as whites." is because "black people aren't quite good enough." But I will say that "that the battles have been won and that blacks enjoy the same opportunities they [whites] do." So draw your own conclusions.

That's racist.

It becomes ever more apparent to me that racism is indeed a chronic terrible problem that exists and is cultivated by so many, while being the issue noone wants to broach. I plan on making it an issue this stump. There are more than issues of color, class, status, gender, the list goes on and on. I heard a political media forum on NPR recently that included Tony Blankly, (Washington Times???) and he was indignant when David Corn suggested the Right has intentionally crafted policy and legislation to keep anyone outside of their (the Right) ideological agenda, elitist class or platform from advancing in life. Blankly stated he didn't know where people got the idea the the Righties were such mean, spiteful, self serving bigots.

Well Mr. Blankly, you and your own party gave this aspiring solon of the people that idea that you are indeed the Racist Right. It is a culture rampant in your party followers, elected and appointed membership. Between cultivating racism and the culture of corruption, I don't know how anyone can continue to vote "R". Ever.
 
Yo, Tony - actions speak louder than words! That's where we got the idea you rightards are mean, spiteful, self serving bigots - that's how you act!!
