Who's The Racist?

As you may know, Republicans in recent weeks have been accused of being racists for uttering such words as "Chicago," and "angry," and that dastardly "golf."

My God.  You can't get any more racist than that.

Unless you look at the Democratic Party platform that is being adopted at the party convention in Charlotte*:
In the selection of each state’s at-large delegation, priority of consideration shall be given to African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and women, if such priority of consideration is needed to fulfill the affirmative action goals outlined in the state’s Delegate Selection Plan. Such remedial action is necessary in order to overcome the effects of past discrimination. Use of the at-large delegation to fulfill the plan’s affirmative action goals does not obviate the need for the state party to conduct outreach activities such as recruitment, education and training.
Race comes first. Racial preference will be the order of the day. Some races are more important than others. Members of certain races are to sit at the back of the bus. And speak when spoken to.

Yeah, those Republicans are a racist bunch.
