I prefer honesty to dishonesty. Imputing discriminatory behavior to an entire political party based on certain incidents by certain poiticians in that party is intellectually dishonest. The Voter ID example, which your Times citation led with, is a particularly egregious piece of demogogery in this regard.

I’m sure you agree that racism is a particularly evil thing. If so, then I hope you would agree that inferring any individual is a racist without specific evidence particular to that individual is a heinous and evil thing.

Hope that helps.
