Where's That Mason-Dixon Line Again?

Wonder if the throngs in the habit of assuring (and congratulating) themselves that racism is exclusively a southern thing have noticed that the goons cheering nastily for McCain/Palin don't all have southern accents. Last time I looked, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Nevada, and Colorado aren't south of the Mason-Dixon line. Neither is Alaska.

Wonder if anybody recalls that the entire country has been up to its eyeballs in racism long before McCain/Palin. It was -- and continues to be -- directed at Latinos and Latinas.

One of those "blind spots" we're always hearing about, I guess. Just sayin'.
