    Because it has gone too far!! You are required to like all black people or you are a racist. You are required to never disagree with a black person or you're seen as a racist.

      You hit the nail on the head, peeples...

    Exactly what peeples said. Take for example this Missouri rodeo clown: clown puts on an Obama mask, runs around, does his job. One woman complains and now we have cries of racism and the DoJ getting involved. Really??? How many times have we seen a Nixon mask? Reagan mask? Clinton mask? Or how about George W. Bush's head on a stick in Game of Thrones? Were those racially motivated? Of course not. They were all simply affairs of free speech and humor. If this "clown" put on a Clinton mask, it never would have been an issue. Because of the race of Obama (who is half white, by the way), he is "obviously" a racist. Nonsense.

    Not all racism is in the past.  Oprah has accused whites of not caring about black lives, sounds like racism is alive and well in Oprah.

    Because the term racism is routinely used to defend against anyone who disagrees with another person with no racist intention.  Race hustlers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have made a fortune off of pitting race's against each other.  And to the point peeples made, we now are expected to walk on egg shells around everyone except a white heterosexual personal.  To them, we can say anything we want.  We don't have to consult HR before we fire them.  They can almost never bring a lawsuit, because they're not in a "protected class".  Sometimes people just disagree and possibly don't like each other for reasons having nothing to do with race, ethnicity or sexuality.  But accusing people of being a racist sells very well, so it's a commonly used weapon.

    Landmark brought up an important point: everyone but white heterosexuals are protected. Multiculturalism and the stirring up of "racism" is part of the war against white people. Yes, a war against white people and white culture is alive and well in the US.

      The term "Protected Class" is actually a legal term.  One which prevented me once from filing a lawsuit which was totally legit, because no lawyer will take the case if your case if not in the protected class status. No money in white people suing.

    I think that your introduces another question - "why is it racist *only* when a caucasian does it?"

    Because not everything is racist, but there always seems to be a black person saying it is racist. We just get tired of it. Heaven forbid the situation is really because we don't like that person, not the color of their skin. Just by someone saying the situation is racist, we dislike the situation and that person who said it even more. They cause racism upon themselves by saying it is racist.
    If you disagree with a black person, it could be because they have a bad idea, you don't like their personality, they aren't being organized, etc. IT'S NOT FROM THEIR SKIN!

    It is the way we have been processed so to speak because of the way society is.  It is not right but that it is the way it is.

    IMHO, the race card has been played in so many inappropriate situations that it has gotten to the point of the story of "The Boy who Cried Wolf".  This is an utter shame because when real racism occurs many just ignore it because there are so many people, of all ethnicities, who will drop the race card either as an excuse or to provoke an argument.

    They are openly hostile when ANYONE says an incident is racist when someone does something horrible to a black person. Among other things I've been called I've been called a n-word lover for pointing out racism.

    You have to be willfully blind and willfully deaf and willfully ignorant to not see the racism that is currently going on in the United States.

    It is my opinion that they are lashing out because they feel deeply ashamed of the little part of themselves that reacted positively to learning someone black was hurt.
