Racism: Politics & Public Debate

Why are proud racists like Buchanan even allowed to speak on tv?  If someone wants to be racist in this supposedly post-racist era, shouldn’t they at least have to hide their racism or else be humiliated into obscurity?

And why does the Republican party overtly support racism as a political strategy?

Most importantly, why are Republicans so ignorant and bigoted?  Is it because they get most of their info from Fox news?

Why is it that the most vocal on the right are the social conservatives who rail against atheism all the while spewing such hate speach?  So, what exactly is the connection between Christianity and morality?

What is so wrong about pointing out the racism that still exists?  What is wrong about pointing out the brutality from before desegregation that still survives in the memory of many minority Americans?  Are people actually so deluded to believe that racism is an issue of the distant past?

Anyways, is it unfair to blame all of this ignorant bigotry on the GOP and Fox news?  Are religious conservatives just born stupid?
