The funny thing about racism when discussed publicly, is that it’s easy to point out, but sometimes hard to prove. Take Republican presidential nomination candidate, Rick Santorum for example. We now know that he isn’t into making the lives of Blah people any better by giving them other people’s money. Does this make him racist? I think the short answer for me would be: I don’t know.

I mean, he did choose to carefully use the words “Blah people.” Now, had he simply said, “niggers,” or “nigg…” well, maybe a red flag would go up in my head to suggest that he’s either overtly racist, or a racist cognizant of not hurting the feelings of “certain people” while speaking publicly. You know what they say: your thoughts control your actions – so a man thinketh, so turds speweth from mouth. No seriously, I think it’s in the Bible somewhere between Genesis and Revolutions.

An Etch-A-Sketch Won't Erase Racism

So the question still remains: is Rick Santorum racist? Well, we do know that unlike Ron Paul he never circulated racist screed within any newsletters bearing his name. That much we do know. We also know that he isn’t into giving white peoiple’s money to “Blah people,” in an attempt to make their lives any better. And, we also know that he isn’t very fond of a certain snobbish president who just so happens to be Black. But this week while speaking on the campaign trail in Janesville, Wisconsin. My boy Slick Rick kinda sorta let the cat out of the bag in one of his speeches.

Forget that whole Etch A Sketch thing, this is the mother-lode of political gaffes:
