I wonder how many proper-thinking leftists have called him either a racist

or a race traitor, or a 'tool of the White Man' so far?
The goal of achieving racial equality must be to make race an insignificant aspect of a person’s image as compared to his or her merit, interests, accomplishments and so on. When being color blind is seen as a shortcoming, there is no hope for any progress on the issue of race relations.

The handout also decries the use of “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” which Napolitano believes sends the message “People of color are given extra unfair benefits because of their race.”

Why does Napolitano assume that it is “people of color” who would not ordinarily possess the requisite qualifications for the job and hence require additional benefits? Isn’t that the definition of a racist belief? If even innocuous statements such as the one mentioned above are construed as dog whistles to racists, it may be no surprise that it is only liberals who hear them.
