...from Bill Maher's "house ni**er" to Governor Dipshit's (and now his AG's) blackface, the racism really seems to only matter to Dems and Libs if you're a person already perceived as racist, and then it REALLY REALLY matters, much moreso than anything else.

If you're a "good lefty" then the chattering classes seem to have divined that it was meant it in some kind of broader context. Which may be true in some cases (Maher's is one), and maybe most Rs don't deserve much in terms of benefit of the doubt, especially when most of them who get caught have engaged in dogwhistle bullshit for years before actually saying something beyond the pale.

Still... it's too easy to not step in dogshit on these matters. The own-goals get annoying.


“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
