“Don’t rile up the angry white folks, because they’re a bunch of racists.”

Maureen Dowd & The New York Times

Don’t rile up the angry white folks, because they’re a bunch of racists.” Stereotype much, Maureen?

Can a white man be “angry” without being a racist? Can a man oppose Obama without being labelled as such?

FOOTNOTE
I just want to clarify that I paraphrased her line. Her original text is, “I wondered if he realized that, in riling up angry whites, he has pulled the scab off racism.”
