Don't like Obama - you're probably just racist!

"Oh, I'm just guessing. This is just off the cuff. I think 45 to 65% of the people who appear at these groups are people who will never be comfortable with the idea of a black president," Cynthia Tucker of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said.

  • When they have no good argument on why any of this is a good idea they throw the race card! Every time it is getting so old! There are BLACK PEOPLE who oppose this bill are they racist too??? Come on people try harder!

    "how can you talk about people marching/demonstrating in objection to HEALTHCARE plans and turn it into a RACE issue and then go further by dragging Palin into it???"

  • I agree with you!!!

    Last week I saw someone from the White House being asked about the protests to the Healthcare plan and she said "that is the life of the first African American president"....... like the reason why people are against it is because he's black, ugh

  • anon - you must not see the question because you don't want to! if you saw beyond those lame excuses, you'll be left speechless, and (gasp) maybe even agree with some of the protesters!

  • If someone was threatning my family and they happened to be black I would never say "never mind, he's black, I'm just going to keep quiet so no one thinks I'm racist!". Heck no, it wouldn't matter if they were black, white, red, purple or green, you even think about messing with my family and it's on! If the President of the United States is making decisions that I feel are bad for my family and for my country then once again I'm not just going to be quiet because this president happens to be black and I don't want to be labeled a racist. It has nothing to do with race!

  • If Hillary were president they would be telling us that we're sexist.

    If John Edwards were president they would be telling us....uh....um....that we just hate good hair.

  • While I think it was an extremely inflammatory comment, I think what is being said here is that the people who are screaming and disrupting (not protesting, but preventing others from exercising their rights) have another agenda, since they are not trying to influence people to their side but spreading lies and misinformation in an aggressive way.
