Racism Alert: 'Vote Black' Buttons At The DNC

One of my favorite things about conventions -- either party -- are the enthusiastic sartorial choices of many delegates. This year's DNC was no different, except for these pins:

Is this a progressive attempt to be humorous? You can never tell, with these people. They're up in arms simply because Erick Erickson cracked wise over the incessant pitches for free birth control due to sexual recreation, so you never know. (They're ignoring that I reTweeted it so they can say it's sexist.) I'm going to take them at their word and assume that they only want black Americans for president now.

According to the Progressive Guidebook to Political Correctness, this constitutes Racism™. Salon's Joan Walsh will be pulling out her dog whistle any moment now, surely.

A s/o, of sorts.

Yes. I hate that anyone on either side still feels the need to make this about race or color. I wish we could get past this BS.

They are both disgusting. I want a president that will fix this economy. He can be of Indian decent with a pierced tongue and tats.

I agree... it doesn't make either side look good.

It's an election for the "leader of the free world",

Doesn't the color of a candidates skin have no affect on the job they can or can't do?

Ok. I am sure I'll hear it, so let the bashing start.

I wish people would stop this ... I have several issues with this ...

it's okay for Obama's supporters to use Obama's race as an excuse/reason, but it's not okay for anybody against Obama (I personally don't view race as an issue at all, honestly, what does him being black have to do with anything?)

Obama is not the first black president. As a matter of fact, he's the first multi-racial president, as his mother was white and his father black.

race should not be a factor AT ALL when it comes to ... well ... ANYTHING!!!! Besides, "once you go black" blah blah blah is a sexually suggestive terminology ... so they are being racist and sexual

I wish that all parties involved in an election would grow up, focus on the issues, and tell us why THEY are better for the job, not why others are BAD for the job!
