    Racism is always wrong - no matter what the source.

    I looked at a site that sold these. It looks like it was done to intentionally rile the right. That is still no excuse

    Absolutely. The problem is that, in the name of tolerance, few people are allowed to point out the racism of liberals while conservatives are fair game.

    Since FDR the democrats have always been able to form a coalition of disparate groups who had little in common!

    The elitist rich!

    The barons of Wall Street!

    The Jews!

    The blacks!

    The union bosses!

    Those who don't like to work!

    The far left, socialists, and communists!

    The Latinos were added as their numbers increased!

    And until Eisenhower, the solid south!

    It's not racist. It's bigotry. And the left gets away with this stuff because folks let them. Start calling them to task on this stuff. If it's going on at the DNC where they control EVERYTHING, make a news story out of it. Give it some teeth. Let them be embarrassed just like with the taking God out of the party platform.

    Drudge has the pic linked so with all of that readership (including the WH hits), it may get some traction. Yep, even the libbies read Drudge. :laugh:

    They won't. I wish Republicans would come out and condemn these - turn the race card around for once.

    That's what I mean Lady Eagle. They need to be holding a press conference RIGHT NOW denouncing this type of political rhetoric. If the DNC won't denounce it, then the right needs to make it into a major headline.

    While I am not an Obama fan, I am not a Romney fan, and it isn't race related.

    I think everyone is racist.

    I remember thinking it to be incredibly week logic voting for Obama simply because he is black. It's no different than voting for someone because they are caucasian, hispanic, or asian. Does someone's race automatically determine their integrity or lack thereof?

    As for you statement of everyone being racist, was there a point to such a blanket statement? I'm not meaning to be antagonistic, but I'm just wondering why you tossed that in there. Maybe just so gullible people like me would ask?:laugh:

    Everyone might be prejudiced to a degree. Everyone is NOT racist. Besides, there's one race and every person who has ever lived came out of the first two people of that one race.

    Re the OP question: Of course it's racist. What do you expect from the Race Card Party?

    It's not racist. However,

    "Don't Vote Black"

    or

    "Don't Vote White"

    would be racist.

    When one says "Vote Black", they are also saying "Dont' Vote White"
    When one says "Vote White", they are also saying "Don't Vote Black"

    "Vote Black" is racist
    "Vote White" is racist

    (Unless the candidate's last names are White and Black)

    Maybe I should say everyone is prejudiced. That they are.
