Taking the current explanation for constitutes racism, ie. If you don't agree with the POTUS it is because he is black, then all the things non whites said if Bush would be racist. That is if you follow the logic of some talking heads on mnsnbc.
To the greater point. Racism is ignorance, regardless of who does it. Making a threat against the POTUS, in a racist way or not is stupid.
I don't have cable, but I read about Chris Matthews rant. Birtherism is certainly rooted in racism. And I've lost count of the number of racist attacks on this President. But nobody says that all criticisms of the President's policies are racist.

Kanye himself said it was a racist thing to say when he apologized (if I remember correctly)- so there's one.

Yes, Illinois is one of the 11 states not on my list of states where you can buy guns with no proof of ID.
And you can vote without ID. Don't worry tho, that won't change anytime soon.
It will be harder to have a firearm if the upstate politicians get their way. But we just got a CCW shall issue law, the last in the Nation. Our politicians and criminals have always carried, just us peasants have been denied. Maybe this State will eventually go moderate, at least that is the hope.

They can educate the youth on why criminal activities lead to poverty and short life spans.
Ex cons will have a hard time in some vocations because if their criminal past. Where I work they cannot. I work in hospitals, clinics, research facilities, government facilities and some industrial sites servicing radio frequency enclosures. You can understand that my vocation gas certain standards.
We must remember a simple truth, ex cons are a product of their choices, they are responsible for their position, not you, not me, but them.
There are jobs they can do, if they are truly motivated, they can create legal businesses.
Denying societal influences on crime misses the full picture. It's comforting to believe that every bad thing that happens to people - from poverty to crime - is entirely the result of rational, individual choices because then you can believe it would never happen to you. But the world simply doesn't work that way.

The man who was mayor of New Orleans during Katrina is named Ray Nagin.

And I don't remember Mayor Nagin saying anything racist.

I never said he did say anything racist about Bush. But he did say he wanted to rebuild New Orleans into a new "chocolate city". Now what do you suppose he meant by that? Was he talking about opening up a Hershey or Nestle plant there? I don't think so.

Let me remind you what was being discussed.

I asked this question:

You answered:

So that was one.

Then FP said there were others:

So I said I don't remember any racist attacks Mayor Nagin made against Bush. You said you weren't surprised by that, implying he made racist attacks against Bush but I ignored them.

But that's not true, is it? You just admitted he didn't make any racist attacks against Bush.

Now that we're all up to speed, I wait to see if FP knows of any since you admit you do not.

And for the record, many US cities that are predominantly African American in population (after white flight to the suburbs) have been called Chocolate City.

As far as I know, Washington DC was the first, since at least the early 70s. There was even a funk album called "Chocolate City" that was a tribute to DC. But Atlanta, Chicago, Memphis, Detroit and New Orleans have also been called that.

The term is used affectionately by African Americans and there's nothing racist about it.

That is NOT what you said. Here is a copy/paste from your post: "And I don't remember Mayor Nagin saying anything racist." No "Bush". So you conveniently just decided to add the "Bush" part.

Right there - in post #6129:

I realized immediately that I left that last phrase off, so I posted again to clarify. Sorry if you didn't understand that.

But the fact remains - you don't know of anything racist that Nagin said of Bush, right?

See what happens when you ask Danny Boy tough questions about his gun control propaganda? He's talking about racism (because he's a racist) now. He has completely changed the subject to avoid having to answer my questions. I'll bet no one saw that coming! LMAO!

Not only have I answered ALL of your questions (none of which was "tough BTW), but I've shredded all your lame arguments.

And I didn't change the subject. I posted about a rightwing politician making a death threat against the President. Others got obsessed with the racism aspect of his threat.

And for the record - calling out and confronting racism is not racist.
