People who would vote Republican – and not support white supremacists at all – would be mostly latent racists I think. I mean, these neer-do-well guys who will fix your car – and throw in a racist joke – at least aren’t pulling punches. The racism is out in the open – kind of like with Latinos.
However, how bad is snooty latent racism? Well, I suppose it’s as bad as the other. I mean, rudeness means little. Well, in the Bible – Jesus said that whoever committed the sin his heart – committed the sin. Right?
Anyway, think about it. Neer-do-wells have never had much political power – but assuredly – latent racists were the ones who promoted Jim Crow. Also, the latent racism up north – where blacks had more freedom – but still denied so much.
