    And led to Trump's election. There is so much stupid in this article that it's hard to read. http://www.salon.com/2016/12/24/drea...rblind-racism/

    When everything is racist, nothing is racist.

    This yelling and screaming "racism!" is just a sign that very little of anti-black racism actually exists.

    I mean, it's racist to have a movie about a suburban Indiana family, a movie that takes place in 1939 and features an integrated classroom? And *gasp* Ralphie had white friends? The horror!

    Seriously, this person needs to be strapped to a chair and beaten with a bag of rotten onions.

    Of course, a TV show called "blackish" isn't racist in their pea brains

    Salon is a pathetic Liberal rag that, like the Left's failed "Air America" is a commercial failure and last I'd heard was kept afloat because the editor-in-chief of someone's rich daddy subsidizes the ridiculous webzine. Their articles are so absurd much of the time it's like reading "The Onion". Salon is a joke.

    There are some racist movies in the past, but A Christmas Story is not one of them.

    I saw Live and Let Die over the weekend. LOL. Talk about stereotypes, though. Gone With The Wind features a lot of stereotypical black characters-it's a tough call, though, because the story is told from the pov of a very shallow white woman. Hattie McDaniel won an Oscar for her portrayal of Mammy, this is a tough one for black people for that reason.

    One of the worst is Mickey Rooney's portrayal of the Asian landlord in Breakfast At Tiffany's. It is so offensive.
