Rush: What Will It Take To End Racism?

A C&Ler sent me an email with the audio and I turned it into a post below. The issue of racism is never going away---at least not in our lifetime and Limbaugh knows this all too well so he'll try to spin Obama any way he can. Good for the ditto head that called in and said "no."

Is it any wonder the republican party is constantly being branded as the "Party of Bigots"? Ask yourself this question. What would it take to officially end the perception of racism in America ... once and for all?

You might answer, a few decades of knowing that African Americans are given the same job opportunities. It doesn't have to be perfect, just show some progress for a change. That would be a nice start, right? How about 5 or 10 years of no more stories about block busting or blacks, Arabs, and Asians being told "sorry, the house was just rented"? That seems like it would be an important element, right? How about finding out that teachers in black communities like Detroit are making a fair wage, and that rather than being threatened into good test scores (ala the No Child Left Behind Act), that we actually start to see some real-live education among disadvantaged black and Latino youth, setting the stage for a more balanced 2nd half of the century.

THAT ... would be a milestone toward being able to say "Racismo Esta No Mas!"

Not according to Rush Limbaugh - the official mouth of the Party of Bigots. And although he was successful out of turning the comments of Christian from Detroit into a discussion on racism instead of his thoughts on Barack Obama is President - he failed miserably at convincing Christian to give the correct answer to his patronizing question.
