  • What makes you think it was racial rather than politically motivated?

  • Was it racial when they hung effigies of Bush, or Palin for that matter? Why does everything boil down to race?

  • How would you characterize the Sarah Palin effigy? It was chalked up to politics.

    If this had been an effigy of just a black man I might would think racism. It was clearly marked Obama so politcs are the obvious reason, just as they were with the Palin effigy.

    BOTH were in bad taste.

  • Carter is an old dude that has no clue. He should just stay home and roast some peanuts. It ain't about race.

  • Oh geeeeee....
    They ARE idiots in Georgia. It was probably a combination of politics and race.....the KKK is still active and they are still hating,you know.
    Jimmy Carter is a good man. I get really discouraged with people who don't recognize that.
