"Socialist" is a racial slur

A columnist for the Kansas City star has written an article in which he explains that socialist is really an old-school secret racial slur against blacks.


I know you think I'm making this up, but alas, I am not.  How this guy gets a job as an editor is beyond me, but I assume the pay must be crap otherwise more qualified people might apply.  
The "socialist" label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.
McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black.
Shame on McCain and Palin
Please, sir, tell me you're not serious.

I did a quick google image search for "famous socialists" and this guy came up first:

Vasil Glavinov
Meet Mr. (Comrade?) Vasial Glavinov, a black man cleverly disguised as a Macedonian socialist leader... or so I assume.  He was exiled by Bulgarian socialists at some point, I assume because Bulgarian socialists are racist... or... something. 

(What is it with socialists and beards anyway?)

So next time you have a gander at the color wheel, keep in mind that the opposite of "white" is "socialist".
