The New Racism

America being the constantly evolving country that it is, we're finding new ways to be racist.

My son notes this over at Cassidy's Blog:
I've noticed a discouraging trend in the national discourse, where bigotry, hatred and simple racism have become not only acceptable, but almost chic. . . . Consider two recent events, the Dubai Ports Deal (DPD) and the Danish Cartoon Controversy (DCC). Both were and should have been cut-and-dry issues, but they exposed some pernicious undercurrents in our society.
Indeed they did. Check out Cassidy's discourse and let him know what you think.

Excellent post! Come over to my neck of the woods sometime. I tend to take on the same subject.
