Conservative activist and former diplomat Alan Keyes says that real racism occurs when race is connected to ideology and compares the institution of slavery to liberalism and socialism.

“What did it mean to be a slave? It meant that you actually had guaranteed shelter, guaranteed clothing. Your master guaranteed your food, your clothing, your shelter and a job. … That’s exactly what the Obama faction and the leftists and the socialists and the so-called ‘liberals’ want to pretend is what all Americans should aspire to.

“The notion that you owe some allegiance or vote to an individual simply because of the color of their skin is racist. … The notion that somehow or another – the fact that you take a different point of view about political issues, about economic approaches, about fundamental issues of human character and decency; that that somehow means that you’re a traitor to your race is patently racist.”—Alan Keyes
