What do you see happen more often: Conservatives being called racist or conservatives complaining about being called racist?

Honestly I have only seen a handful of comments actually acusing those who hate Obama of racism. And some of those were directed at clearly racist remarks.

Yet every day I see dozens of comments of how sick people are being called racist. Who is calling you racist? I don't get it?

  • Yep, I must say I see the latter much more often. I also see way more liberal-bashing than I do conservative-bashing. Maybe I'm not reading the correct posts.

    You should read more often. The only reason I would say I see more people sick of being called it is because when one person does it, multiple people reply to call them out for it.

  • What I'm talking about is how in a debate someone suddenly pops up with I'm sick of being called racist out of the blue when it didn't happen in that thread.


    I read plenty on here and see that all the time.

  • I have seen both equally. Dems will say they see more people complaining about it and Republicans will say they are called racist all the time. Depends on your perspective.

  • I think it is equal... I was called a racist for mentioning working with Star Parker's program Urban Cure. How does THAT happen? I didn't complain. I jokingly remarked and they disapeared.  Obviously the accuser was ignorant. But surprise, surprise it was an anonymous poster who made the 'accusation'. lol...

  • They are being called racist, cuz it's the only card the "other" party throws out there when they feel threatened!

  • Do you actually read the posts on here? When someone is thinks she is loosing a debate, the race card comes out. You really haven't seen that? Really?

     Some in the media even like to falsely accuse racial issues (racial tension/guy with gun~turns out to be a BLACK MAN carrying a gun......) WTF is that? How is THAT the rights fault
