Nashville Post Politics: Me? Racist?

Nashville Post Politics

Me? Racist?

Roger Abramson notes what may become the new defense against accusations of racism:

In the future, “Hey, I voted for Barack Obama!” will be every white person’s get-out-of-racism-free card. It’s perfect: 1) a real racist (at least, an anti-black racist) would presumably not vote for a black man for president and 2) it’s completely unverifiable! Perfect! It’s like saying you were part of the French Resistance in 1943.
