Strange Loop: Elite to Racist

re:You Can’t Win

Roger Clegg notes an LAT op-ed:

"`Elitist’ is another word for ‘arrogant,’ which is another word for ‘uppity,’ that old calumny applied to blacks who stood up for themselves."

elitist = arrogant = uppity

uppity > racist

Therefore elitist > racist.

What's wrong with this picture?
