Do you know the easiest way to find a racist? Look in the mirror.
Do you know how I know? Because I am a racist. I am, you are, everyone around you is, along with everyone else. We all are.
Feel free to confess your ignorance by denying that.
There are some people, however, who are more racist. The ‘more racist’ too, are not always hard to spot. Here are a few ways…
1) Anyone who starts any sentence, ever, with “I am not a racist, but…”
The ‘ding-ding-ding’ you hear in your head are alarm bells letting you know this person is racist.
2) When the phrase ‘black lives matter’ is overheard, the first person to blurt out ‘All lives matter!’ (Ding-ding-ding!) is a racist. Almost certainly the most racist person in the room.
Also, everybody who nods their head in agreement with the ‘all lives matter’ comment is probably, but quietly, racist.
As an alternative to looking in the mirror, you can also look at a picture of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). The book of lunatic observations by King is long but, among other things, he has said Barack Obama is “anti white cop.” He seems to be the only Congressman fighting to keep Harriet Tubman off of the $20 bill and, even though he represents IOWA, has a confederate flag on his congressional desk in Washington DC.
Southern states have worked long and hard (and successfully) to remove this racist flag from governmental grounds, but Steve King still stands strong with the confederate state of Iowa.
Note to King: Washington DC and Iowa were both on the Union (you know, the north/winning) side during the war.
Borrowed Quote of the Day: Arguing for “All Lives Matter” is like going to a cancer fundraiser and saying, “Why isn’t this event for ALL diseases?”
