    Or like the way the Neo Nazis are dragging down the name of the original Nazis.

    As it happened, depending on the counting standards, either Gore or Bush could have won. Howeve, IIRC, Gore led the popular vote by about 500,000.

    When I was single, I dated a couple of black girls (one was bi-racial actually) and I can say in general I preferred dating white girls. Does that make me racist? I don't think I am. Is it OK to have one preference over the other and still not be racist?
    I'd say there are two ways to define racism. To just take the literal meaning of the word I would describe racism as distinguishing between races. So any acknowledgment or recognition of differences between various racial groups would be racism. No negative connotation explicitly implied. However, I think the typical usage is that racism means associating a race with specific negative traits, and/or acting on racial bias.

    I'm not too hot on blondes. Doesn't mean I wouldn't hire one if they were qualified for a job I was offering, but also doesn't mean I would date someone I wasn't interested in.

    I don't recall saying anyone had their name dragged down. On the other hand, I don't recall hearing the New Black Panthers offering pancake breakfasts.

    I'm sure there are NeoNazis out there that have very different views from thr original Nazis.

    Candrew that means that you are racist.

    There Brow we covered that.

    Candrew I took your earlier post to mean that in and of itself that does not make a person racist but that the person may be one. And that it can go both ways. Fair enough.

    This.

    I can see one candidate win all the toss ups but I doubt it. E ven if they did it would be by close margins.

    I say Romney wins, CO, FL, NC, VA, NH and OH.
    I guarantee Romney loses at least 2 or 3 of those states.
