You might recall Lindsey Graham saying "A black person can be anything they want in SC as long as they are conservative". Its only less racist in his mind because he meant it for white ppl too.

Does that mean a black person can be anything they want as long as they remember their place? And white people can be anything they want as long as they remember their place?

No. It means that under the current 'capital is more important than people' system no one but the rich get anything but subsistence without a lot of sacrifice and labor.

But I wonder about that. He might’ve meant, “Obviously white people can be whatever they want, regardless of their politics (and the police won’t usually shoot them), but good news! Black people can too! Sometimes. If they’re conservative. I’ll be the judge..”

Racists HATE being called racists. They prefer the polite euphemism, "conservative." But they support racist pols, and racist policies, so they're either racists, or fine with racism: a distinction w/o a difference. also:
