Not true, since I can honestly say that I've changed my opinion on many topics based on some of the debate on here. I'm probably younger than most here which might have something to do with it.

Do you have a statistic for being called a racist on this site?

I have to agree, but isn't it more about venting earnest and heart held beliefs. That, and a bit of fencing with the other side. Overall, we might consider it to be a kind of participatory entertainment game. And, as we know, it never ends.

Entertainment. Where else can you get explanations of the insanity inside the right wing bubble, such as sea level rise caused by erosion? Or Obama is weak on Crimea, but Cheney and Bush are strong on Georgia?

Yes: the correlation between charges of racism and mac as author is close to 0.9, with three or four -- it doesn't even matter who because it has become mere Al Sharpton noise -- fighting for distant second place.

Says the man who waxes poetic about growing up in Alabama during segregation. A man who apparently missed noticing racism.
