If a black person is conservative he or she is demeaned on intelligence, looks, being an uncle tom, etc. It rings true all the time and it is never a general "oh I don't agree with him" type of thing. It is always visceral, personal and specific.

Look at what Clarence Thomas, Palin, BTO go through every day. The higher they get, power wise, the more immature and insulting it gets.

You really think Nancy Pelosi or Sara Boxer are intelligent? They say stupid stuff ALL day long and you never hear about it. BTO is a tax attorney and people talk about her like she flunked out of 4th grade. Clarence Thomas is a brilliant legal mind, whether or not you agree with him, and you'd think he was Samuel Jackson from Django.

I can't elaborate more now, twilight golf at 4 then drinking until monday.
Generalize much?
I work with conservative women (white and black), and conservative blacks. I have never heard such comments directed at them. If you are a media figure, yes. But, that is a two-way street. The right-wing media lambasts the Boxer & Pelosi and a slew of others. (Do the words Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke ring a bell?) Was Limbaugh held up to ridicule, yes. Was Fluke held up for ridicule by conservatives, yes. If you don't think "liberal" USSC justices get their share of remarks, I suggest you look again. You might start with "christian" talk radio and folks like James Dobson, who has an audience in the millions.

Enjoy your drinking until monday.
