Default Racist subtext in American politics

Listening to Thomm Hartmann this morning, he talked about how in slave days, when an unruly slaved was disciplined, it was called "breaking him."

With that background, how you can listen to Jim DeMint, R-SC talking about Obama's "Waterloo and how it will break him" and think he is not familiar with that term and wasn't using sly language to rally his racist brethren?

I'm so tired of the Glen Becks and Rush Limbaughs and even members of Congress using barely veiled, if veiled at all, terms for their racists hopes and beliefs.

I'm worried about the future of our country.
