Limbaugh & Drudge's Race Baiting

First, a definition (courtesy of Wikipedia):

Race baiting is an act of using racially derisive language, actions or other forms of communication, to anger, intimidate or incite a person or groups of people, or to make those persons behave in ways that are inimical, and often harmful to their personal or group interests.

This can also be accomplished by implying that there is an underlying race-based motive in the actions of others towards the group baited, where none in fact exists. The term "race" in this context can be construed very broadly to include the social constructs which define race or racial difference, as well as ethnic, religious, gender and economic differences.


Second, this headline from the Drudge Report:
LIMBAUGH: Race Rules All in Obama's America...


Third, judge for yourself.
