4. Least racist you say?

That's got to be hard to prove.

How about we ask some of the victims of racism here in this country see what they think maybe Trayvon Martin?

Oops, can't ask him.

What about that jury that found his killer innocent. I'm sure they would've have agreed with you shortly after their ruling. Now with George Zimmerman's, psychopathic, and criminal personality being revealed by his post-trial, gun-fueled aggressions, even they may have changed their minds (about their verdict maybe but probably not about their own racism in voting to free that killer).

Ahhh . . . maybe they aren't the ones to ask.

Let's try the birthers or teabaggers got to be fertile territory there.

So the point is, "least racist" is like "least pregnant." The inevitable is still going to happen, even though we no longer have "whites only" accommodations. What we have now are "stand-your-ground" laws and repug voter suppression laws.

Hard to call those maneuverings "least racist". You can if you want to though but isn't it hard to see with your head buried in the sand?
