Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Question Their Motives

I found this Mark Krikorian piece via Malkintented about how people should protest the Census asking the race question and he has a solution.

Instead, we should answer Question 9 by checking the last option — "Some other race" — and writing in "American."

On the surface, this looks like a good idea, but since the National Review is a right-wing publication, there has to be some racist motive. Then it hit me.

The people most likely to answer "American" are white conservatives cause these people view themselves as the "true Americans." When fewer white people answer "white", the number of white people on the Census results go down. When this happens, the racists on the right will say there are fewer white people in the country and feel "surrounded" by minorities and these scared stupid white racists will just buy more guns and become even more racist.

Whenever a white conservative talks about "moving past racial identity", they are lying and we should question their racist motives.
