I am a racist...

Or have been given that title by several readers in response to my September 13 post. It seems that quoting from, and linking to, a column written by a BLACK MAN in a BLACK owned and BLACK edited newspaper in a BLACK GOVERNED and BLACK POPULATED country qualifies me. I consider this a compliment, even though it comes from people who believe that name calling is a correct response to one who presents the opinion of a BLACK MAN.

A man who dares to reject and denounce predators and parasites, even of his own race. Can't have the darkies forming their own opinions on massas Jackson, Rangel, and Dowd's plantation. Take your welfare check and shut up is the standard for the left..

Or is the response directed at my having the audacity to suggest that U. S. media are so self censored and terrified of "the R word" that they fear airing such an opinion? To notice that the heroes of free speech have all agreed that the opinions of millions of BLACK PEOPLE are an unsayable heresy?

"The emperor is fully dressed, you RACIST." Q. e. d.

I decided long ago to stop keeping the black man down. It was just too much trouble, all those meetings and memos. And one really does try to avoid exposure to those who wear percale sheets, forsooth.

I don't know you, so I can't speak to whether or not you're truly racist. However, I would like to point out that racism is an "equal opportunity" point of view, and anyone of any race can be racist. Making sweeping generalizations about people based purely on their race is racist, regardless of the generalizer's background. A black man can be racist, too, if he isn't inclined to think beyond the apparent commonality of skin color to recognize the individual differences people of all such large groups have. It is indeed someone else's opinion that you quote, but you do quote it, without any sort of qualification other than to try and say "here's something I think you should see, but don't call me racist just because I think a racist quote is relevant and something you should see." If you're not prepared to own something, you shouldn't put it out there to begin with. You did think that quote was relevant, didn't you? And for what non-racist reason might that be?????

If you had wrapped some of this post around your original post and link, at least there would have been some context. As you posted it, it reads as racist. There was little to no explanation as to why you wanted to draw attention to that article. The problem, it seems, was in delivery more so than intent.

Probably it reads racist because you're a racist.
