Newsflash: If you ever feel the need to qualify something you’re about to say by explaining that you’re not a racist: YOU ARE A RACIST.
There has been a lot of coverage this political season about the importance of the hispanic vote and everytime a news outlet does a story about it (which seems like 3 a day) they interview some asshat who says something to the effect of, “I’m no racist but . . .” before saying something like “I hate mexicans”. Or maybe it isn’t that obvious – they’ll say, “I don’t want to sound like I’m racist but I get so uncomfortable that there are so many of those people around.”
Yeah, I know.
Sweet jesus. Even if the Obama is elected president, we’re still a bunch of racist assholes.
