On his Twitter account Tuesday, state Rep. Ryan Winkler called the justices’ 5-4 ruling striking down a part of the law racist, and the work of “four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” Justice Thomas, who is black, was one of the five justices in the majority.

That tweet was quickly deleted, and Mr. Winkler, who is white and represents some upper middle class suburbs west-southwest of Minneapolis, offered a conditional-tense quasi-apology in subsequent tweets.

no surprise .......

the tolerant folks on the left are usually the first to play the race card when something doesn't go their way .......

just going by their motto, if you don't facts on your side, use emotion ......

It's OK. It seems only white conservatives are capable of racism. Leftists get a free pass to say whatever they want whenever something doesn't go their way. The media and legal system have made that distinction clear.

It's the common leftist accusation against any black person who isn't "with the program."

Whether an "Uncle Tom" as they sling it at Justice Thomas or Herman Cain, or a "Cornball brutha" like Robert Griffin III.

If you're not "on the plantation," you can and will be attacked by their vicious racist rants.

Disgusting nutters.

No.

Rep. Ryan Winkler (D) is a racist, as is your homeboy, Barry Hussein Obama.

Own it.

Calamari, You said i need to speak up more when someone on the right spews racism. Why aren't you speaking out against racism from the left?

Like most people who read "uncle tom's cabin" in their youth, I don't consider it racism. If he had used an actual slur it would be a different story. That said, I have called out those on my side for their rare actual racist statements in the past. Unlike you.

My god, where did you find that Sharpton quote? Is that on his MSNBC bio?
