It is no surprise that the intrinsic evil of racism is raising its ugly head in the presidential campaign. It might be thought that it is a sign of comparative virtue that much of it has been kept out of public view until now. As Catholics, we are obligated to stand against racism and affirm the sinful nature of racist acts.
Some speculate that racist voters would be voting Republican anyway and it therefore will not change the outcome of the election. Maybe.
Let us hope that those motivated by the sin of racism will have a change of heart.
