  •  I think they are living in a "world" (0+ / 0-)

    where they can not conceive that the majority of America will not secretly or openly agree with them and be glad they said it...the world I grew up in Chicago (50s, 60s) where I remember that this was true, though being challenged.  And I am Polish, and it was OK to call me a Polock, and tell stupid Polock jokes (still is, I believe, in some places) long after calling someone a nigger was not OK,  and nigger jokes, really not OK.  I had a teacher in school tell me I was not "supposed to pick things up so quickly."  I finally realized all of this is fear-based and everyone who is afraid uses such tactics, and I am now free.  When everyone gains their freedom through awareness, then it will all go away.
