Default Rick Santorum had the guts to say out loud....

what I have thought- the Barack Obama set race relations back rather than improve them as the first elected black President during his presidency. He always seemed to take the minority side of any issue, such as police shootings, before he knew all the facts. This seemed to embolden the liberal left loons to be more aggressive in their rhetoric to the point that it almost seems to have become more mainstream beliefs by them. I never thought much of his politics but at least he had the intestinal fortitude to speak his mind. Just my opinion of course...

No doubt. In my 38 years I have never seen it so bad. Identity politics drive almost everything on the left now.

Yup. And the irony is, it's the most bigoted possible outlook one could have.

Here is a piece on the Starbucks debacle. What really got to me was the below from the comments section. The left is furthering the divide because normal discourse on political topics is pretty much off limits for far too many.
Notice * "until recently"

Basically all this means is that you are not permitted to enforce store policies if the violator is black or you as the enforcer are white. Ironically, the true consequence of events like this is that I as a white person must reduce all interactions with black people because I run a 100% risk of being called a racist if they happen to be offended. Itís sad because I didnít have to think this way until quite recently.

I can certainly understand your dispiriting conclusion. As a black person, I see this as a very sad state of affairs.

Santorum said this on some kind of debate with some liberal I think it was Sunday on CNN. Read about it on MSN.

Just look at Rosanne.

Not looking to kick that ant bed again. But she is being labeled a "racist" based off of her tweet. But does anybody really think that she spends her free time trying to oppress minorities, or looks at minorities as genetically inferior people or shares any real "racist" qualities?

This article below hits the nail right on the head. Here the double standard is laid out perfectly and ironically enough by an American man of African descent.

J Sweet, excellent article and very well explains where we are as a culture at this point in time. I don't think I have at any one time in my life treated someone of a different color any different than anyone else, until that person points out to me that we are of different colors.
