As anyone who has dealt with racist bigots could tell you, the facts are meaningless to these people. An essentially irrational feeling (racism, bigotry, supremacism of all kinds), born from irrational fears becomes elevated to the status of "fact" using flimsiest of excuses.
A black candidate could be simply mentioned in the same sentence as "terrorism" and that is taken as proven fact that he's a terrorist. It's not rational, it's an excuse. McCain, Bush or even Clinton aren't held to the same standards. And that's really the mark of a bigot: holding different standards, putting one group of people above another, and when called on it give BS excuses.
I applaud Al Jazeera who finally figured out that all you have to do is use a white, sympathetic looking reporter to get people to talk about the racist core.
