I ranted and raved about Allen West a couple of days ago...does that make me a racist??
I didn't use any racial slurs or refer to his race in any way, but I ranted about him. I don't like him. Does that make me a racist? If you disagree with a black politician, are you automatically a racist?renie408 (7,765 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
1. Come on, where are all the people who jumped on Hockeymom asking about her husband, the racist?
What's the matter?? Only people who don't like Obama are racists? Only people who don't like black DEMOCRATS are racist? While people who don't like black Republicans are just voicing political opinions, right?
Don't you get that reducing Obama, or anyone else for that matter, down to just their race is racist? No matter who is doing it or why? Yeah, some of the people who have a gut hatred of Obama are racist. Some of the people who have a gut hatred of Allen West are are racist. And then again, a lot of both of those groups have political differences with the black people in question.
But claiming that ANY dislike of Obama is strictly due to his race is racist in itself. It demeans him and the person making the claim. See, I think Obama is shaking up the Republican party enough that they can hate him just for that...and not even think about his race.
And it's crickets over at DU. Not a single person replied to the post.

at lest someone had some brains on the topic...for once"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings..."

CowardsGovernment is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
