"Mitt Romney’s racist!"
Why is he racist?
"Because he opposes welfare!"
Ok, that’s not racism, I can see how you would construe that as class warfare (though I personally would not) but I hardly think it’s racist to oppose welfare.
"Well most poor people are black so he’s opposing black peoples’ income! He hates black people and Mexicans!"
No, see, stereotyping a certain race as belonging to a certain income bracket — THAT’S racist. YOU’RE the racist one here.
"No I can’t be racist I CHECKED MY PRIVILEGE! Your racism is showing wow bigot /hairflip.gif/ all my followers need to go tell this person how wrong she is omg im shaking"
