"Send the black guy back to Africa" comments have always stood the test of time.

ArcadianRefugee: "Send the black guy back to Africa" comments have always stood the test of time.


There was a time in American history when black people wanted to be sent back to Africa, therefore joke is okay.

Birtherism is such an asinine, blatantly racist phenomenon. The fact that it is treated with any sense of seriousness by GOP politicians is beyond sad.

Even my own father, who isn't a birther, considers the claim a respectable idea that some on the right believe in.

Subjectively I have been seeing a rise in racist comments from friends and family, not even in reference to the President or even politics in general. It's particularly disturbing to me because my children are mixed race and we do not even acknowledge racial differences in our house at all.

When we watched the first debate my kids asked if the President was the one wearing the blue tie or the red tie. My wife pointed it out and, as a kid who got beat for watching the Cosby show, had quite a moment of pride.

/yeah yeah CSB

Obviously, if some people believe he was born in Kenya and some people believe he was born in Hawaii, the truth lies somewhere in the middle, which seems to be around Kachug, Russia, north of Mongolia.

It used to be that the GOP was not racist, but #1 with racists.

But as this campaign drags on it is becoming increasingly obvious that the GOP doesn't just tolerate racism - they encourage it. Which makes them racists.

/I'm convinced I'll never vote GOP again

These are the type pf people who tell black jokes when there are no black people around and then say, "Hey, I'm not a racist! I've got black friends and they all laugh at my black jokes" when called on it.

In short, ignorant, bigoted shiat heels, who need to be dumped in the waste bin of history as soon as possible.

I thank that sort of thing is awesome.

Tangential CSB:

My godson is half black, half white. When he was about 8, he had a "girlfriend" in school. His parents were curious and trying to figure out her race to try to figure out what kind of girl he liked. The dad asked "is she like me, or more like your mom?"

His response was - spoken in a pretty horrified way - "she's a girl!"

Kid had no idea they were asking about her skin tone.

There are a lot of times when calling out racism is inappropriate, because there's a perfectly good, non-racist reason that a person said what they said. If somebody says Obama is the worst president in history, that's stupid, but not necessarily racist.

But when you see footage of the speaker at a GOP fundraiser firing up the crowd by promising to send the black president back to Africa, it becomes really hard to ignore the obvious, unforgivably racist undertones.

A lot of sociologists have conducted studies on what they call "color blind racism" -- I won't go through and quote them all for you, a quick Google will pull up plenty of information, I'm sure. But one of the basic ideas is if we ignore race exists we may downplay racism. Racism is not as overt as it once was (i.e. Jim Crow era) but it still exists.

Asked whether he was at the fundraiser, Tommy Thompson said: "'I don't know what you're talking about,"

I believe Tommy. To be fair, though, I believe he could accurately say that in response to virtually any question asked of him.

Between these two things I can't believe the nerve of the Romney campaign not to denounce this crap. That's the one thing I will give McCain props for in '08 at least he disapproved of these clowns when that crazy lady called Obama an "arab".

Of course if Romney did that then it would mean he'd lose votes because he doesn't have any integrity in his body.

Ok, serious face here:

The very definition of racism is the notion that humanity is made up of "races" (color coded for our convenience). Anthropology and genetics have shown the concept to be ridiculous a long time ago.

So you're saying rejecting the premise of racism makes us racist? What?

I think what he's saying is that being completely blind to what people *perceive* of as race (That is, not really being able to perceive "people would say that's a black person."), could lead one to *not notice* other people being racist.

That is to say, if you are completely 'colorblind' with respect to 'race' (you are unable to group people based on the perceived 'race'), you may not notice racism when you see it.

Which does sort of make sense: If you don't really understand the difference/categorical groupings, you wouldn't really be able to notice systematic discrimination by others.
