Rush inflames old hatreds
Limbaugh: We need segregated buses
I grew up on the west end of Belleville and graduated from Belleville West High School.
I've never seen a fight that didn't draw a crowd of cheering kids. They were always white kids because there were less than a handful of blacks in the town. I grew up in a racist environment centered on a fear of the predominately African American community of East St' Louis moving up Edgemont hill into our town. That underlying prejudice still exists among the older population of the community. I haven't been there in 14 years but I would suspect that those feelings are less, like everywhere else, among young people.
Here in Spokane it doesn't take very much motivation for fists to start flying, if that's a common trend, across this country, that's the reason why it was so necessary for a fight to start over a seat.
Hate merchant, Rush and others are trying to inflame the old feelings of animosity and racism that this nation struggled so hard to climb out of.
Steele's support for Rep. Wilson's rude outburst toward the president along with the hatred from the right is shocking.
Steele knew that man’s background. He knew what he meant.
Racist actions and talk MUST always be challenged!
What did Steele do? What did he stand for?
It seems as though he has placed loyalty to party above all else.

This is why the angry south, and those of like minds went Republican. Like it was sad and shameful then, it is now.
For the right wing conservatives to say it's not about race and that it's only a few extremists isn't true. To silently tolerate racists speech and actions within your midst is the same as participating in that hatred.
