What is your reaction to the facts in this article? Yes, it is definitely written by a liberal, but I want to know what you all think about the fact that some people are making some really hateful racist remarks.
Now, I will be the first to say that some remarks are being taken out of hand and people are being called racist when they are really just being critics. I think we can agree that people are walking on eggshells with Obama as President. However when words like 'coon' are cheered and defended we must admit the racism is there.
Are people using race because they are mad at the current government and just want to be hurtful? Or is it more than that, is the GOP inherently racist? Or are there a few bad seeds making everyone look really bad?
Please let me know what you think.
