Huck, if I knew who you were I would send you a shovel. You are going to wear that one out digging yourself in deeper and deeper. Your writing seems somewhat muddled, to put it kindly. Probably because your thinking is muddled.
Some, though not me, would say that "white bigot" is redundant as only whites can be bigots. I would have thought you might be one of those. Can non-whites be bigots in your opinion?
But to get to the real meat, what does race have to do with your point? Why bring up "white" at all? (Is Cornbread white? Am I?) Seems to me that you are obsessing on race. Isn't that pretty much the definition of "racist"?
How is it worse than you or cornbread calling me a "liberal racist"?
Did Cornbread call you a liberal? I certainly didn't and never would. I do not believe that you are a liberal. I think you may be progressive but I use the word liberal properly and would not apply it to you.
"Racist"? I think you have demonstrated that. So it seems to be factually correct.

Have I ever said that dismal health statistics, among everyone
(there goes your focus on race again) is not a problem. Including, since you insist, among some minorities. Doesn't seem to be a problem among Chinese-Americans, Indian-Americans and some other minorities, does it?
I also think that we have serious problems generally with the way healthcare is delivered and paid for in this country. We disagree about the best way to fix it. You think Obamatax is the best way. I think you are wrong, I think it will make blacks, for example, worse off overall.
You think I am wrong so rather than argue the merits of Obamatax or ask me what my alternative is you call me a "racist".

How old are you Huck? About 15? Name calling is a great debating tactic. It shows that you have run completely out of logic, reason, arguments, facts and for that matter, chewing gum.
Maybe when you get a little life experience it will be appropriate for you to come hang out with grownups.
Not now, it seems.
