Changing demographics in fact do make a national racist appeal politically untenable in the coming decades.
But from the local politics of Madison-Fitchburg in Wisconsin to Tommy Thompson (fear the extremist opponent and tell lies stoking the fear) to Mitt Romney, the message is clear: Be afraid.

But don't look for a message of come-on-down from Best Cleaners; no, it's easier (and more destructive) to take a racist shot; like David Blaska, like the Tea Party, like each and every GO-Tea Partier encountered. It's a surprise this guy gets any business with the marketing skills he apparently possesses.
It doesn't matter that a group of black kids are heading home from an after-school class they just took at the Meadowood neighborhood center; some people just don't like the optics of black people—breathing, laughing fellow human beings who ought to go somewhere else.
The fact is Best Cleaners, Tea Partiers, GOP, your hatred and bigotry is at base: fear. That makes you cowards. That makes you worse than cowards, in my book.
