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.

Its probably just a counter attack for all the vote whitey crap that has been spewed for the last 4 years. Just like the pins that say Sluts vote, after the Sandra Fluke fiasco.


Wrong wither way.

According to the old One Drop Rule, anyone with any Black ancestors was considered Black, no matter what their actual skin color. So, yes, he would be considered Black.

Quoting Naturewoman4:

I agree.  Obama is not our 1st Black President, like what we keep hearing.  He is bi-racial, half black/half white.  I'm tired of hearing that we have our 1st Black American President & am sick and tired of hearing that.  Those buttons that speak about keeping a Black President in & putting a White President back in office, is quite disgusting to me.  I'm so tired of all this racial bs.  I wish people would go by the job of a  President, instead of the color of their skin.

Quoting NiCo86:

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!

How far back does this go? Due to slavery, a good many of us could be " black" by that rule if there are no generation lines.

One drop is one drop. If there were rumors that your great great grandma was a slave your great great grandpa had taken as a wife, you were often ostracized. Read Desiree's Baby by Kate Chopin for an example. In that the wife doesn't know her family background and is devastated when her baby is born with African-American features. It was more common than people think.

I don't agree with that at all.  So, if I had ANY black in me at all, I would consider myself black?  IF you are going to go by that, George Zimmerman would be black then.  GZ is multi-racial, because he has white, latino, black ancestors.  As far as I know, Obama has black & white.  Black father & white mother.  White grandparents.  So, he's Bi-Racial.
