I was just wondering...Am I the only one that sees racism as overt ignorance?
I have found that discussing the possibility of Barack Obama as our next president with some people seems to give them a free pass to show their ignorance. I was discussing politics with several friends and mentioned that I had voted for Republican presidential candidates in the past. One friend said "Well, you're gonna keep it that way aren't ya?". To which I replied, "I am going to vote for the best person possible." His response, "Now why would you want to do that?"
Because I have always tried to do that. Because I care about my country. Because I like to think I am not ignorant.
