Racism in America

When discussing racism in the American public arena, there is nothing quite like having two black people of opposing viewpoints, sandwiching the likes of one Bill O'Rielly. A man who is both attempting to be a referee in the process, while simultaneously being held up as a previously excoriated public figure when it comes to racism allegations on his own.

But what is really interesting to watch and observe, is how Warren Ballentine gets away with black racism during the debate. First with his accusations against both Limbaugh and O'Rielly, but later he does the same thing with Juan Williams.

And you know what? There was never any challenge to Ballentines's snides on either O'Rielly's or Williams part. And at the end of the piece, the parting shot by Ballentine is priceless. He tells Juan to go ahead and get back on the porch. That was his game ending retort.

I will leave that remark up to the individual discerning minds to determine as to his specific intent and reference. But I think that most people can figure it out.
