    If I like and pick Chinese food,

    does that mean I am a racist against Europeans, aka "white" people's food? Even though Europeans are not by any mans all "white."
    If I am very rich, and I vote for someone "white" who will give me large tax perks, loopholes, and look the other way when I spill toxics on the ground and in the waters, am I a racist too?
    If I am very sick, am I allowed to vote for someone "non-white" who favors my condition? Or am I a racist too for not voting "white"?
    To some on the right, the answer is no, if you vote for who you like, and they happen to be "non-white" you are a racist against "white" people. First these need to learn what racist means, second they need to stop imposing on others freedom.
    Are "white people" the only ones allowed to vote for who and what they like, and the vote counts?

      China continued moving tanks and armored vehicles and flying flights near North Korea this week as part of a military buildup in the northeastern part of the country that U.S. officials say is related to the crisis with North Korea.

      The Obama administration, meanwhile, sought to play down the Chinese military buildup along the border with Beijing’s fraternal communist ally despite the growing danger of conflict following unprecedented threats by Pyongyang to attack the United States and South Korea with nuclear weapons. The Obama Administration foreign policy failures weigh heavily in the situation that has developed.

      According to U.S. officials with access to intelligence reports, both intelligence and Internet reports from the region over the past week revealed the modest military movements in the border region that began in mid-March and are continuing.

    • It's more of a class thing rather than a racist thing. If you are middle class do you really want you or your kids forced to be around lower class #$%$? That principle applies to any race living on the "other side of the tracks" and it's not racism as you have defined, it's a common sense thing.
