"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

As a general rule I would say no from personal thought, however, I believe it depends on what the color of a persons skin is as to whether it is racist or not. From what I have seen in the politically correct world if you skin is light pink or less tanned than most, yes that would be rasist.. how ever if your skin is of any darker shade it is NOT racist such as NAACP or the Latin American Chamber of Commerce.

I think it is, because the reverse is true - it certainly would be called racist if you refused membership in a club or group to a person based on the color of their skin.

My opinion - yes. If the determinate factor is the color of someone's skin, then that is racist.
