1. Bill O'Reilly isn't a racist.
2. When actual racists appear on the side of the GOP, they are routinely denounced.
3. I'd put the record of the modern GOP on this subject up against that of democrats any day. Let's not forget that it's the GOP that strives for a colorblind society and the democrats who fight to maintain race-specific policies.
The shirt below says, "Yup I'm a racist"
And then of course this recent remark:
“My father had a ranch. We used to hire 50 or 60 person of Hispanic heritages and — to pick tomatoes,” Young said in the interview with KRBD. “You know, it takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It’s all done by machine.”
"All Republicans, White people, conservatives and Southerners are not racists. In fact, the majority of these groups are not necessarily racist. However, the GOP refuses to take responsibility for its own bad press and would rather say that the media is blowing things out of proportion, unfairly targeting its members (instead of Democrats) or that Blacks and Latinos are too sensitive. All of these outfits and fashion flips rather than cleaning up their act.
In the last election cycle alone, the GOP with the ****erhead Ranch Scandal, Rick Santorum saying he didn’t want to give tax money to black people, Paul Ryan talking about “urban voters,” Sununu calling Obama “lazy,” and the CPAC panel on race debacle, they’ve given the average minority American enough fodder to ignore them for several more elections.
