    Dkos went through a bunch of "post racial" diaries and comments. Some of us in the minority community here tried to warn them of what was coming to no avail. It didn't take long for that to stop though as the racist cartoons began to appear and dog whistles were heard from arond the nation.

    Then the Tea Party...

    America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

      And the more Republicans lose elections, the louder the dog whistles will become. I believe that the next play from the GOP will be to use race to try to divide the Democratic coalition.
