From England, this article by a man living in a formerly English neighborhood:
Well, no, actually. As the old saying goes, the definition of a racist is anybody who`s winning an argument with a liberal...one who is, after all, used to setting all the guidelines for what passes for national debate, is insulated from the effects of his opinions, and doesn`t much care for being challenged.[How my neighbourhood was lost to the multiculture, By Peter Whittle, Sunday Times, January 22]
In fact, this saying is only eleven years old, it`s from Alien Nation, 1995. And here`s the full quote, from page 10:
"Because the term "racist" is now so debased, I usually shrug such smears off by pointing to its new definition: anyone who is winning an argument with a liberal.Or, too often, a libertarian. And, on the immigration issue, even some confused conservatives."
