One Man's Opinion

I'm not going to argue with him, I believe him completely:
Because I am in New York for a short visit and, as the world well knows, the city of my birth is in a period of racial turmoil, I am going to say something I have been thinking about for a long time. And because I am one of the relative few to have spent long periods of his life on both the left and the right and because I was a civil rights worker in the sixties. I think — though it is purely personal and based only on observation — I have earned the right to an opinion. So here goes.

The left is vastly more racist than the right. It’s not even close. Since I was publicly identified with the right, roughly from when I started blogging in 2003 (although it was actually several years earlier in private), I have personally witnessed not a single incident of racism from anyone who could be considered a right winger and heard only one racial slur — and that was from a Frenchman. In the seven years I was CEO of PJ Media, I came to know or meet literally dozens of people who identified with the Tea Party. I did not hear one word of anything close to racism from any of them even once. Not one, ever. This despite their being accused of racism constantly.

The left, on the other hand, is filled with racism of all sorts, much, but not all, of it projected.
Go read the whole thing.

I have observed this too; that liberal America is inherently more racist than conservative America. Pointed it out to liberal friend...was informed that my ignorance of the reality made me...racist.

I have also been informed (by a few different people) that it is not possible for "people of color" to be racist against whites, no matter their actions or statements.

Of course, I am a conservative living in, I have to handle every encounter up here with kid gloves. Liberals are plentiful up here and passionate about what they believe, especially if you don't step in line behind them.
