I have said this many times, and it holds true - the first person to bring race into an issue is the racist (no, I am not injecting race - this blog is being written because Williams did).
As an example, Newt Gingrich proposed that children from poor families be allowed to work and earn money, and to develop a work ethic. Mr. Williams immediately brings race into it, saying Gingrich has introduced race. He did not. He never mentioned race. He mentioned POOR PEOPLE. And there are poor whites as well as poor blacks - a point that seems to escape Williams. Williams also accused Gingrich of saying such people were lazy, but Mr. Gingrich said no such thing. He simply said these children need to DEVELOP a work ethic. But that is true of ALL children, as no one is born with a work ethic. Most children live in families where they can learn a work ethic. But that is less true in poor families, where work is less than consistent (which is why they are poor). And again, it is about POVERTY. But williams makes it about race.
Mr. Gingrich goes on to say Obama is the food stamp president. And Mr Williams immediately infers Gingrich is again slamming minorities, and introducing race. But what again escapes Mr Williams is that 40% of families who use food stamps are white. So again, it is about POVERTY, not race.
But Mr Williams and his liberal friends insist on claiming it is about race. That is because THEY are the true racists - injecting race where it does not belong.
Either they know it is not about race, and are trying to paint the candidates as racists, or they do not know it and therefore have no business commenting on it in the first place.
