Californian Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters Won’t Rule Out All-Black Party. Cool. It’s been a while since the US had an explicitly racist political party. I rather assumed they’d gone of out of fashion, what with everyone decrying racism and all.
You know, being black doesn’t give you a license to call people racist any more than being Jewish gives you license to call people antisemitic.
So, she ought to understand that every criminal defense lawyer knows that race matters, ethnicity matters, political affiliation matters. …
If I had said that race didn’t matter, she would have called me a racist. She throws around the term so loosely and so inappropriately, and it weakens her credibility because calling everybody a racist by calling me a racist when she calls real racists ‘racists,’ nobody is going to believe her.
