    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?

    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.
