  • jodi205 I don't understand why you are being met with so much hostility. I didn't take your question to mean you were upset about his race.


    I've seen many (mostly anonymous posts) right here on CM that refer to his race.  This week someone answered a question about him with, "It's never smart to vote for the black Muslim."


    People don't usually admit it in the open, but many are pissed just because he's not white.  I live in the south and I hear little comments all the time.  My own MIL told me America's just not ready for a black president.  Obviously America has spoken, and we are ready.

  • This is a VERY ridiculous question! If there are people out there (and I'm sure there are) that are honestly upset because of his race, then they need to grow up, put their big girl panties on and get over it! The year is 2008 things are changing, and this one is a GREAT change!!

  • Last time I checked, this was the year 2008. Would seem that Americans, since none of us here are "native" would have gotten past this crap by now, but, I guess not. What a shame.

  • Well it's a very ignorant reason to be upset with who our new president is going to be. If you're upset it should be based on policies, how he's handled himself before, NOT BY THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN!!! Where are you from that people are writing to the editor of your local newspaper all pissed off?

  • He's black? Could've sworn he was bi-racial? Don't care if he's purple, as long as he does his job and does it WELL.

  • Bi-racial equals black to most people! My son is mixed (I'm white and his dad is black) I call him mix, but my husband calls him black. Where in Pennsylvania big city or small town?
