Are You Racist? Use the Flowchart! (Plus... Violent Anarchists!)

Former President Jimmy Carter called you a Racist.
Janeane Garafalo called you a Racist
According to Melissa Harris-Lacewell, professor of African-American studies at Princeton, words you use like "personal responsibility" are "code words for racism".
Chris Matthews of MSNBC doesn't believe that protests against health care can be anything other than racism.

Still confused on whether you are a racist or not in the post racial Presidency of Obama? Well, print this handy dandy flowchart and hang it in your cubicle or on your refrigerator.  Next time you believe you have a legitimate issue with the current Administration in Washington, just follow the chart to see of you are really a racist or not.  Fun for the whole family!

Michael Moore's movie, Capitalism: A Love Story isn't scheduled to be released for another week or so, but did the movie, which concludes that "Capitalism is Evil", help incite anarchist violence during the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh?

This week 20 leaders from around the globe met in Pittsburgh to discuss various economic issues plaguing developed nations. Outside the summit, police clashed with black-veiled protesters.

Mike Nance, 28, a graduate student from Philadelphia, said he had no problem with so-called anarchists vandalizing businesses.  I don't think property violence is particularly immoral," he said.

Consider that lately, Moore has been busy promoting his new film, claiming that capitalism is actually legalized greed and that we need to do away with it. This is not much different with the rally cries heard outside the G20 summit this weekend.

When taxpayers turned vocal at Town Hall meetings this summer, the news media attacked this "angry crowd of racists" while commentators from The Huffington Post, Daily Kos and MSNBC feared that this will all turn to violence.  Yet the opposite has occurred.  Hundreds of thousands of taxpayers marched on Washington and reports of violence were non existent.  Now 500 - 1,000 black-clad, veiled anarchists that are too lazy to get a job are in Pittsburgh and the police are making arrests daily, windows are being broken, tear gas is being used.

After the release of Michael Moore's movie, will Nancy Pelosi stand at a podium once again, invoke the turmoil of early 70's San Francisco, and bemoan the potential violence this movie will produce?

I'm betting she won't.
