I don't suspect that charge is being levied against anyone on this board. The vast majority of people I've met at PP have their hearts in the right place, regardless of which party or movement they most closely identify. However, within the broader libertarian and conservative movements, it's hard not to see there's a element of racism. I think the people on the left tend to exaggerate the size of that element, while the people on the right tend to downplay it. And as with most things, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. I recently heard someone say, "Being a libertarian or a conservative doesn't mean you're a racist. However, being a racist likely means you're a conservative or a libertarian." While I think that's painting with a broad brush, I do think there's more than just a little truth to that. If someone is a racist, it's simply unlikely they're going to vote for a typical democrat. There's a reason minorities, women, LGBT, etc. vote for democrats in large numbers. Still, no party or movement is blameless and all political movements have their share of crazies.
