The 'race-card' played in politics
"The race card." Iim sure youive heard that phrase before. Itis tossed around in politics like beads at Mardi Gras. But this phrase does not sit well with me. Its connotation and the context in which it is normally used trivialize a much larger, heavier issue. Race is not a game. Minorities are not pawns in a game, or at least I like to think they are not. I am starting to feel like I am in full-blown denial about this, though.
