What might you think is a main underlying reason for racism? Why would someone have a problem with another person who has skin of a different shade or color?
I would argue its not the color of skin, but what people have been taught to believe are commonalities within people who share the skin color. Stereotypes that are taught from an early age, and persist until "unlearned" through social interaction. The sharing of tasks, duties, and similar life experiences are crucial as a demonstration that the difference in skin color is simply THAT.. A difference in skin color.
So why do we still see attempts to encourage thinking otherwise? Its happening here in Michigan, and its apparently quite blatant.

Recent debate.. Who is in fact more racist? Or perhaps who is so focused on the color of one's skin, they cannot see the substance of what that person is saying...
The issue of race, and its place in politics is a perennial favorite for pundits, and documenting of issues that might affect racial relations seems to be a favorite challenge for reporters who want to be "daring" in their editorial pursuits. Often parroting the concerns of the left, interviews will begin with a "I see you are the only black ..." and usually are followed with questions related to the stereotyping, or perhaps framing that the left has used to insist the efforts of Tea Partiers or conservatives are racially biased.
And many of us look at these reports and scratch our heads.. wondering what in blazes they are talking about? Because there is a majority of caucasians at Tea Party events, it automatically makes the events racist, right? Is that how it works? Was Kelly O'Donnell's question of the black veteran in DC on tax day a search for the truth of the matter? When she asked: "Do you feel uncomfortable?", she couldn't have ASSUMED he was there because he wanted to be there?
His answer? "these are my people.."
Not acceptable to the left.. Not at all when they have worked so hard to vilify conservatives as cruel to minorities. With a decades old, and unending effort to buy the favor of minority constituencies by progressives, such dissent is not at all acceptable. It does not fit their contrived assignation of "the enemy", as they see us.
