Here's how he sees it:
There are many types of racism, including the type that says there's no racism in America anymore ... (link)Say what?
I once heard a member of the New York State Supreme Court, who happened to be black, say in a television interview that there can be no such thing as a black racist since, as we all know, African-Americans have traditionally been oppressed and are generally powerless and that racism is a tool of the powerful and therefore blacks are ... exempt. This from one of the most powerful men in the state.
First, here's a definition (right out of the dictionary):
Racism: Discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race.
Seems simple enough. Workable. Applicable. Why try to distort the meaning of the word?
Well, we all know why.
Lefties like Achenbach and the state Supreme Court judge view a guy like me who has no problem whatsoever with black people (and who finds the time we spend discussing skin hue to be borderline bizarre), to be somehow hate-filled anyway, because they can think of me no other way. So even though I've lived among 'em (I even sold a home to a family of black folks once!), hired 'em, worked for 'em, and called many of them my friend, I'm still - somehow - a racist. I'd bet if I gave birth to a black child, I'd still be called a racist (and make the Guiness Book of World Records).
Well. What's my reaction to such idiocy?
You can both put your lips to my (mottled, off- white, perhaps slightly pallid) backside. And Joel, if you have thoughts of making a living as a deep thinker, take my advice (though a racist I may be): don't quit your day job. Whitey.
