White conservative male pundits were quick to blast the president's off-the-cuff remarks, suggesting that they were focused on a non-existent issue. Below, a collection of conservative white dudes happy to declare that racism is dead:

Apparently, not everyone thinks racism is dead - just more instances where the GOP are totally out of touch with reality.

I think they are actually referring to the future as it will apply to their 'soon to be forgotten' careers......

IN case anyone missed it from the comment above .......

The same people who think racism is dead can't stand the President because of his color.

Forget - In the GOP/Tea Party's dreams...This (Trayvon Martin case) seems to have been a catalyst for talk - not just the decision, but about the state of racism in America, especially between those who thought it was no longer a problem. Some of us knew it was alive and well, albeit not as conspiuous as it used to be - subtle undercurrents, we'd get very brief flashes, but didn't realize just how bad it had gotten. We were not given the Truth, and the Whole Truth.

Myself, I chalked most of what I read about and saw up to drugs and pimps...stereotype much?? This really opened my eyes - to myself and How I had become so complacent in my little world. Still working it out but am starting to come back to reality, gathering the pieces of myself I had let go, thinking I didn't need them any longer.

Should have remembered that what is old usually comes back - with a twist.
It's the twist that'll get you everytime if you let it.

John S: 100% of lemmings jump off the cliff. Does that make it a good idea?

On my profile, I refer to myself as an angry, old white male. But the angry is about the bullshit these people spew in the process of trying to tell everyone else just what to believe.

Blah blah blah and there is no war on women either just transvaginal probes and legislation pending against reproductive rights by men without a vagina. ???
There is no GUN problem in this country either ?? . Nearly 800 children under 14 were killed in gun accidents from 1999 to 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That doesn't include adult---accidents and crime.
What we have in this country are people whose warped thinking are causing a great deal of trouble for the rest of us with their gun mentality, their racism, the hatred of freedom for women and the good folks marching want to change all that. And they better succeed for the good of this country. .

To deny racism in this country is to deny we need air to breathe. It runs back and forth. Whites stereotype blacks and blacks stereotype whites. It is just too sad. Everyone has the capability to be a good person. Everyone. Color does not dictate that. Clothes don't dictate that. I wish those who think Zimmerman did nothing wrong could see through other eyes just for a moment. He was wrong. And then he had to kill, in his mind, so he didn't die. And it all came from fear of how a person was dressed and the color of his skin. And Trayvon feared him because he was a white man following him. This country is just sad.

I have grown up supporting Civil Rights to a much greater extent than most people I know. However, I have been left with some very abrasive managers to work for, simply because they liked the analytical part of work. They need the sensitivity training that has made workplaces bearable since the 1970's. That exists in jazz, but does not carry over to many workplaces where the new use of power is heady to an arrogant disposition. That is minor, but the fact is, they need no help from whites to succeed any longer. Even the president is Black, and an arrogant fool who ignores the laws and people.

The issue of violence in Blacks is huge. Rihanna is stupid enough to take back a boyfriend who beats her and glorifies it, waving a tattoo in her face. Now, we have the idiot Travyon who beats up a man, perhaps out of his racism, and is glorified as a martyr to get Blacks more sympathy power. Even without it being the law in Florida, a person could suffer such anguish from a beating that they would kill in self defense. If I were assigning karma to someone who beat someone and injured them, it would be not the pain of slavery, but to beg on the streets in lousy weather with the injuries they inflicted multiplied. The violence has to go. If they want equal rights, they must accept equal responsibility and learn anger management.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Marg because you have done so within the last day.
