“This Arizona experiment shows you can fool enough of the people enough of the time. Especially if they are old whites who reflexively check the name with an “R” beside it — because all our problems are caused by brown-skilled people getting things they don’t deserve.

Yes, we know, not all Republicans are racist. But it is becoming increasingly clear that latent, and in this case blatant, racism is becoming the norm in the GOP as the Tea Party takes over. Yet another example rears its ugly head, in none other than Florida.

Utility Board member Steve Wade of Lakeland, Florida, in a budget meeting earlier this monthdescribed Lakeland’s black population as…

Surprise! (not really tho)
