“Yes, we want to be judged by the content of our character and not the color of our skin. But what makes up character?” [Hillary Clinton] said, quoting from Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. “If we don’t take race as part of our character, then we are kidding ourselves.” [New York Sun, 1/21/03]

“We are kidding ourselves” means: “I don’t have a rational basis for this belief, so I want to win agreement by intimidation.”

What is her belief? What does it mean to “take race as part of our character?”

A person’s character is his disposition to behave in a certain way. Character is not in the situation you face, but in what you choose to do about it. To accept race as part of a person’s character is to say he is helpless to control his behavior in the face of the demands of his race, that he is unable to make certain choices if his race dictates them, that he is helpless to conform his own individual judgment to facts if his race demands otherwise. This idea is the essence of racism–that our race determines our character.


Hillary Clinton has no shame:  she quotes Martin Luther King in defense of her racism! Where is the outrage?
