University of Missouri President Resigns As Protests Grow over Racism

As you will hear in the monologue above, I am VERY passionate about fighting racism in this country.  It has to do with my background growing up in St. Louis and attending school in Ferguson, MO.  

That's why I am so passionate about the misuse of the "racism" accusation within political dialogue.  Accusing a political opponent of racism is meant to shut down further debate, not solve that problem.

See the use of the accusation in stories here, here, and here, as cited in my monologue.  If Americans begin to believe that racism is simply being used as a general term against people with an opposing view, they won't take real accusations of racism seriously.
