STFU, Conservatives

Republicans don’t even acknowledge that racism exists. There were a couple of new stats in the paper last week. One showed how blacks were treated way worse than whites by mortgage lenders. The other was about Haley Barbour, the governor of Mississippi who just pardoned like 200 prisoners as he was leaving office. Two thirds of the prisoners he pardoned were white, even though the prison population in Mississippi is two thirds black. And another study found that the odds would be ONE TRILLION TO ONE that that would be coincidental.


And what is the Republican solution to these outrageous inequalities? There isn’t one. And that’s the point. Denying racism is the new racism. To not acknowledge those statistics, to think of that as a ‘black problem’ and not an American problem. To believe, as a majority of FOX (News) viewers do, that reverse-racism is a bigger problem than racism, that’s racist.
