I thought this a great Op-Ed, seeing that some of you white people have no problem using the word, nigger, with impunity…even justifying it if nowhere else but within the confines of your own recalcitrant and disturbed minds. Proof positive that the aforementioned article is about none other than “you”. -poet.
I can vouch for him, though his politics could use a bit of work.
Here’s the thing. It isn’t racial at it’s core, although I’m sure there’s a fairly macro contributing factor of bigotry. What’s going is in Republican fear and sound byte based politics are reaching their logical conclusion.
However people do become resistant and adapt, people can adapt even to coral snake venom, which is almost as poisonous as Republicans have been. I live in the hicks where there’s more than a wee bit of Conservatives, yet I see Obama 08 bumper stickers still.
A fellow in the next town over has a huge sign out in his yard “Not rich enough for a tax cut, but poor enough for a wage cut” out in his yard. Even just that one guy now but more will follow. As people see how disastrous this insanity is, enlightened self interest will help them find their shit.

Well, to bend over backwards to see his point of view for a moment, he does appear to be going head-to-head with… New Deal Democrat. I think if I were to read those two for more than a few minutes I’d end up wanting to throw the entire fucking human race into a gulag. Of course one shouldn’t generalise about a large group of people based on the behaviour of their most obnoxious 1%, but boorish group-hate just tends to beget more of the same. So I’m cutting him a little slack.
