I just got in a very heated discussion with my mom because she told me that she believes that 9 out of 10 people that dont like Obama dont like him because of his race. She retracted that and changed it to 8 out of 10, but I was appaled, I can not stand Obama, but race has nothing to do with it for me. So it got me thinking how many other people out there feel this way? And if you dont like Obama, what are your reasons?Answer Question

I would say more like 2 out of 10 take issue with his race and/or heritage. I don't buy that it's anywhere near the majority but I do know a couple of relatives that ARE racist. It took forever to get them to stop sending me "Obama is a Kenyan, Muslim Antichrist" emails.
Personally, I think it's a cheap BS debate tactic in an attempt to hurt the oppositions credibility. Just like saying those who disagreed with Bush were traitors or those who don't like Palin are jealous. If you destroy your opponenets credibility with cries of racism, traitor or whatever then everything else they say comes into question.
