There is a double standard when it comes to identifying who is a racist. It's no surprise that Harry Reid (D-NV) got a pass today from every Democratic Congressional member (the CBC), Democratic supporting group (the NAACP), or race hustler Al Sharpton.
The same, of course, cannot be said about Rep. Joe Wilson (D-SC) who famously yelled out "You lie" while The One was giving a speech to a joint session of Congress and the American people. Wilson was vilified for speaking the truth, and was called a racist at the same time. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd heard the word "boy" following the words "you lie", except it was only in her pea-sized brain where she heard "boy"; Wilson never said "boy". Leftists and race hustlers hell bent on letting Reid off the hook went on for quite awhile showing how "racist" Wilson was.
Democrats are notorious about hiding their own racism. As this post at American Thinker showed, Democrats went ahead and put the Washington D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program on a track towards slow death, despite the fact that this program has helped thousands of minority children get a better education than they could in the horrible D.C. public school system. Of course, this is just par for the course for Democrats' bigotry of low expectations, in effect making sure minorities, especially Americans who are black, are dependent on the federal government for their livelihood.
Democrats never mention how it was their party who did everything they could to keep slavery in place, including trying to secede from the United States. Democrats never mention that it was their party that implemented Jim Crow laws in the South. Democrats never mention that it was their party that put 180,000 Japanese-Americans into relocation camps in WWII. What Democrats will do is try to get the United States as a whole to apologize for their actions. It's high time to tell the Democrats to kiss off and take responsibility for what they've done instead of doing what they usually do, pass the buck.
