Doesn't make me uncomfortable, kurt_w. I've lived around covert racism like yours my entire life - people who use race to serve their own cynical political and social ends. They project their racism onto others as a psychological defense so they can feel less ashamed without having to confront and change the deep fears and prejudices they carry in their own hearts. So, no, I don't feel uncomfortable except to the degree I feel sorry for you and the people who are unwittingly influenced by your disorder.

I gotta say Meade, you are the most racist, smarmy asshole I've run across on a forum that wasn't labeled "Free Republic" or "Storm Front."

God, that is awful. I don't care if he's a racist or what -- he's a creep.

Already, there has been some question into folks who cast their ballots on Saturday. South Carolina's Attorney General, Alan Wilson has notified the U.S. Justice Department of potential voter fraud. Wilson says an analysis found 953 ballots cast by voters were people who are listed as dead. He has asked the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate.
Does anyone remember when BU$H pulled the Feds off of more important cases to look for individual fraud starting in 2001, like dead people or felons w/o voting rights, who voted? I think they found a grand total of 34 fraudulent votes in 8 years nationwide.

Ignoring facts that demonstrate racism is racist. Ergo, you are a racist.

The South Carolina Republican Party just had a de-facto "Whites Only" election. In a state where blacks make up 28% of the population, the turnout for Saturday's election was 98% white, 1% black, and 1% "other".

That doesn't bother Meade at all. Not one bit. He is, however, absolutely horrified at my temerity in pointing it out. It was a gross breach of manners and decorum on my part.

Well, brace yourself for more rudeness:

Does the South Carolina GOP have anything to say to the 28% of the state that is African-American? As bdog himself asked, are there no black or Latino conservatives in South Carolina? If such people exist, why were they apparently unable or unwilling to vote in the election on Saturday?

Who cares? You? Why don't you ask them instead of pretending like you care in front of friendly SWPL clan members in Madison?

People who believe in discussing racism and data about race instead of sweeping the whole thing under the rug and pretending nothing is amiss.

Is there something amiss about an almost-entirely-white GOP convention?

Depends on who you ask.

Why don't you ask them [SC GOP] instead of pretending like you care in front of friendly SWPL clan members in Madison?


Here's the opinion of one old southerner who's been around politics a few years:

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/jimmy-carter ... of-racism/

Jimmy thinks in SC, the GOP knows its membership very, very well.

And blacks in SC know, the same as Jimmy does.

Is there something amiss about an almost-entirely-white Willy St COOP membership and staff?

OK. In group discussions are safe and easy. When were you planning on doing? You do know there is a difference, right?

Since something is amiss at the COOP, according to data you are supporting for effect, when were you planning on disparaging the COOP? Do they get a pass because they are SWPL?
