i swear, sometimes i am afraid to speak my mind about our president's policies in certain company because i am caucasion, to avoid getting slapped with the racist or bigot card. its been happening to me frequently, and i always feel relieved whenever i come across a person of color who did not vote for Obama, disapproves of his policies, and points out the lunacy of his "historical" election. to the momma's who may feel offended by my comments, oh well, that's your right. for the momma's who know where i'm coming from, please feel free to share your experiences.Answer Question
Questioning our new President's policies and disagreeing with him, does not make you racist and no one in their right mind would think that. I think you thinking that people are going to think you are racist is focusing on the whole black/white thing. Hes our president, hes a man, you have the right to disagree with whatever you disagree with. If someone throws the race card at you, well then that just shows their immaturity and ignorance. No one threw the race card around when black people disagreed with Bush. Try not to worry about offending people. This is the year 2009.. people need to grow up, put their big boy or girl panties on and stop using the race card.

Oh I agree OP! I have been called a ton of volatile names because I oppose NObama and his policies! The race card is ALWAYS used and it is HORRIBLE! The late GREAT Martin Luther King Jr. said that we aren't to judge a man by the color of his skin, but by his character! YET when you do that with NObama, you are automatically a racist! Actually, MLK Jr.'s teachings and according to his beliefs, he himself most likely wouldn't have voted for NObama! NObama stands for everything MLK Jr. was against! How about turning the tables and say that all those that opposed McCain or Bush or Palin..........aren't they all racist as well? Am I racist for going against NObama.......he is 50% Caucasian, so am I being racist against my own race?
