19. I don't believe so
I think racism is a very specific thing.

I don't believe that we are all a little bit racist. I DO believe that we are all prejudiced to varying degrees. But I do not think we are all racist.

Now, please note that my comment was only about Bush. I certainly believe that there are people in his orbit who ARE racist. I just don't think he is.
