Well if so then a number of Americans have exhibited racisim over the appointment of Representative Tim Scott to replace Jim DeMint in the U.S. Senate. Scott is a favorite of the Tea Party and his overall political philosophy is decidedly conservative. That's all it takes. He is being called a "token black", and "Uncle Tom".
So in other words, being black isn't about skin color, it's about philosophy. Which of course might explain why Bill Clinton was sometimes referred to as America's first black president.
It is quite clear that the charge of "racism" which some have argued can never be made by white people, may in fact have more meaning when leveled by black people. Which is why we need to see how Mr. Scott and other black leaders deal with the criticisms of his appointment coming from the black community.
Oh, and on a related note, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (RG3) wins the recognition as having had more of his Jersey's sold in 2012 than any other player. And this was despite the fact that some say he is not "black enough" because he might be a republican.
