Society needs to be equal and blind to each other, instead of promoting, pandering and disallowing criticism of any racial or ethnic segment, which always will result in divide. This issue was created by the Governor of Hawaii. "As former Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle gave a speech promoting inroads that Republicans have made with Jewish voters, as well as ripping the Democrats for allegedly being more hostile to Israel, ........". Vitriol is the result of those who resent seeing any group pandered to, because by definition pandering is favoritism. The Governor would have been wise not to bring up pandering comments that in today's environment could be construed as divisive.
Most Americans are tolerant of each other as long as "others" are here legally; that they assimilate; the political system results is fairness and equality for all; and appropriate balanced representation in the halls of power. Under no circumstances are the various demographics going to accept being ruled by any group or minority.
