Convention Special: And not just for Trump supporters: a serious simple way to fight the perception of racism

It's one of those quirks of Modern Life: the way right-wing racists are so gosh-darned prickly about being called racists. You'd think the solution would be obvious: just stop being so fucking racist. But no, it turns out that these prickly souls aren't the least bit touchy about being racist, just about being called racist.

Now officially, as Mark explains the Doonesbury "NOT A RACIST!" wristband above, the device is officially for the benefit of Trump convention delegates who are sensitive to being "labelled a racist just because you support one." But heck, it's not as if you're under oath or hooked up to a polygraph, so I don't see why the device shouldn't be usable by persons who are merely sensitive to being called racists. For that matter, I don't see why it should be limited to Trump supporters

Tip for use: If you have Doonesbury in your Sunday comics supplement, you can obviously just cut the wristband out and it's ready for use. If not, you can simply go to the Web link above, size the image for your wrist, print it out, and cut out. Or you can just use the screen image. Again, after sizing the image for your wrist, cut out just the wristband portion (to minimize screen damage).

Simpler solution. What about just not being one?

South Park (N-word guy)....They'll proudly pass a law restricting the use of the word "racist".
