The Race Card

Further yesterday's posts here and here about the Bulletin's use of the race card, I came across this post by Xeni Jardin on Bong Bong:
"Every once in a while some fooligan will roll to you talkin' some trash about how you discussing your racial background in a broader social context is a 'back-handed maneuver," she says. "They may even accuse you of 'playing the Race Card' because you mention that life is different for you because you are different. Next time that shit goes down, be prepared." (Incidentally, she's also Miss SF Leather 2009.)
Could it be that she read Wednesday's Townsville Bulletin editorial too?
