Michael Williams (R Cand, SEN-TX) wants to talk about race.
The problem with this essay on race by Texas Railroad Commissioner and Senatorial candidate Michael Williams is that you really need to read the whole thing: there are too many good bits to cram into just one snippet. But a taste: What grieves me most, however, is not that false cries of racism shortcircuit our debate, but that it makes legitimate concern about pockets of | Read More »
Obama asks Gov. Petersen to not run in 2010
Governor David Petersen is one of only 2 Black Governors. By putting pressure on Gov. Petersen, is President Obama a racist?
President Carter: Racist?
The left has a convenient fall-guy in the president himself. He happens to be black. So when they are cornered with undeniable logic, they reach into their back pocket, pull out he race card, point at the president’s skin, and squeal racism.
On Tuesday, September 15, 2009, former president Jimmy Carter stated that “he thinks” that Representative Joe Wilson’s shout of “You lie!” during Obama’s speech was based on racism. He elaborated, “There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.”
I think that Jimmy is a racist himself. I think he’s an old-school racist who has wrapped himself in the convenient and deceitful wool of a liberal, and that when incidents arise that allow him to express his deeper, truer views in an accusing manner, he lets it fly. He may actually believe that others throughout the country think the way he does. Any true racist would.

The Last Racist Post I Will Ever Be Accused Of Making
The true beauty of the race card is not merely its universality of application, but its flexibility. It is available as a standing argument on any issue, readily committed to memory.

A New Definition of Racism
Every now and then during a leftist protest march or on a bumper sticker I would see an “End Racism” sign. There would be a reflexive eye roll at this platitude as I knew there would always be some form of racism somewhere, because a small number of people will see skin color instead of character. Now I have never been called a racist directly, | Read More »

Obama Is Opposed By Racists
If patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel then crying racism must be in the other half of the duplex. Many of us noted back during the ’08 primaries and general election that the Obama camp would cry racism at the drop of a hat. He performed poorly in Pennsylvania because of racism. He was trounced in WV because of racism. In August 2008, | Read More »
“Welcome to Post-Racial America”; Open Thread
The quoted part of this post’s title comes from DRJ at Patterico’s; the pictures say it all. There is a link to Cliff Thier at American Thinker who opines: Mark today [ed. note: Sep. 12, 2009] as the date that the mainstream media put a gun in its mouth and pulled the trigger. Then of course, there is Kanye West at last night’s MTV Video | Read More »
What is the shortest time span known?
The amount of time between criticizing Obama or someone in his administration and the first hysterical screams of “racism.”
And just like clockwork, the Van Jones race baiting begins
In Saturday night’s late-night diary about the Jones resignation, I commented in the discussion threads that before the day was out today (Sunday), cries of “racism!” would sound. And just as predictably as the sun rising in the morning, there they are. From page 2 of the Politico story, published late Sunday: Some progressives said they saw racial overtones in Jones’ departure – which came | Read More »
Have No Doubt, The Race Card Will Be Played
I’ve been following along with the saga of President Obama’s “Green Czar”, someone who can’t define what a “green” job is (nor can anyone else), the self-avowed Communist Van Jones. The push to get him removed has done much to further put on display Obama’s past and present associations with outright radicals, and showing Obama to be as unserious as any of these people who | Read More »
This is how they see you (image may be NSFW).
[UPDATE]: I’ve had a copy of the image sent to me that includes the URL. The Google cache for the site is here; as you can see, not only did the image originate from the site, but the author him/herself was present at the Reston Town Hall, writing posts about it. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I think | Read More »
The Republican Race Solution
Continued from The Republican Race Problem – One of the sticking points with conservatism and race is our faith in the Constitution. For a long time, the Constitution did not serve blacks in particular very well. This, due to the unavoidable compromises necessary to bring different states into a single union. We do need to gently remind doubters, however, that, much like | Read More »
The Republican Race Problem
The most shining moment of political awakening I received came via a cute liberal hippy chick with whom I worked in college. She was going into great detail about the racism at Penn State when I said that I simply didn’t see it. In fact, I said, it seemed to me that the college almost goes too far to recruit minorities, with special incentives | Read More »
POTUS’s pushback/non-pushback on Paterson racism smear.
I mean, I wouldn’t want to get referenced during the casual race-baiting of the Governor of New York either, but it happened. Heck, it happened to me, too – at least, in the sense that I’m one of the amorphous mass of people being accused 0f racism because we think that David Paterson is an incompetent dunderhead*. Unlike the President, however, I don’t have aides | Read More »
