Le Bon really cuts to the heart of the matter on the racism issue. This passage in The Crowd

This factor, race, must be placed in the first rank, for in itself it far surpasses in importance all the others. We have sufficiently studied it in another work (?); it is therefore needless to deal with it again. We showed, in a previous volume, what an historical race is, and how, its character once formed, it possesses, as the result of the laws of heredity, such power that its beliefs, institutions and arts–in a word, all the elements of its civilisation–are merely outward expressions of its genius. We showed that the power of race is such that no element can pass from one people to another without undergoing the most profound transformations. (Le Bon, 103)

I think that the ill-liberal Left views this as part of its gospel. The untruth of this hard-wired racism, as seen evidenced in the acceptance of people from Alfonzo Rachel to Allen West all over the country (except on MSNBC), drives home the point that the race card is played out.

Yet, in zombie fashion, the Left continues to push this tired falsehood. May God require this evil of the Left.

Mr. Pinko says it’s OK to reply to the Left’s accusation of raaaaacism: “I embrace your accusation of me being a racist under your ignorant definition. I, however, know the truth.”

    Until Mr. Pinko owns all of academia and the popular media, any acceptance of the label of racist is the depth of stupidity.

    Mr. Pinko said,
    “under your (the left’s) ignorant definition of racism.”

    If you allow the left to say they hear your dog whistle and see through your code words, and you spend your time defending these asinine accusations. you’ve fallen into their bear trap, hard. Face first.
    Have at it. I’d rather simply let them continue redefining racism to the point where everyone is a racist, then no one is.

    But carry on.

    You got it – the key word is “ignorant” definition of racism.
    Anyone can call anyone a racist – the moment you start defending yourself, you lost!

    Embrace the stupidity! 😉
