Do you have a good way to explain to white people why the phrase "playing the race card" is offensive and ridiculous?

Thats a question worthy of a PHD dissertation. In a country that was founded on slavery and currently spends too much of its time seriously discussing whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya or America, I think its ridiculous that white people would accuse black people of using he race card. I say, if you don;t want me to play the race card, then stop dealing me the race card. It's like a game of poker. And not only do I get bad cards but I get that weird card that explains how poker is played.
