For them that might be true - when they advocate giving black students extra points in college admissions solely based on their skin color I have no other way to describe that than "racist." If you want to base it on economic circumstances I think you can make a case for that, but situations in which you award people based solely on their skin color and nothing else is now fully the domain of organizations like the NAACP and the democratic party. The problem really is the older generations - people like Al Sharpton don't know how to survive without racism while my generation no longer really cares that much about it. I'm not saying it isn't there - just wildly overstated by those who want to exploit it.
Here's a shocker for you - I'm a republican and I'm not a racist...99% of us aren't either. Most democrats would like to believe that's the case either because its what they've been told their whole life or it serves their interest; but its just not true. I don't oppose 'social justice' programs because I have a racist vendetta against the black community; I oppose them because I think its dangerous to create an entire class of people who are entirely dependent on government for their livelihood. I think the country is better off as a whole when people are in control of their own destinies and lives, self-reliant and free from government telling them how to live or what to think.
So the philosophical argument I make is essentially "give a man a fish, he eats for a day....teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime." Government is the one that gives the handout, makes the individual owe something to the government and thus wields power over that person in a viscous cycle (the democratic party is doing this with the black community - lets call that a form of slavery). As a republican I advocate personal responsibility - teaching people to rely on themselves - not government programs...that's REAL freedom...but democrats seem to be afraid of this idea, probably because it undermines their whole claim to power.
