BARRY BAMA IS A TERRORIST, A RACIST, A LIAR, A FINANGLER, A MONEY PIMP, AND A COMMUNIST....
there are plenty of reason why Barry should never be prez let alone a senator let alone dog catcher...and race ain't one of them...
I hope Deb Honeycutt wins in Georgia and I hope Micheal Steele runs again....there are super quality black people out there that don't need to be racist and communist.....they are just plain old good people....
You got me there.
I'm just a white republican, but does this mean I'm a racist too? I never knew I was a bigot, but I do consider almost all individuals responsible for their own troubles. So, to this author, I'm racist, a sexist, and otherwise prejudiced, as are all of us who think people can influence how their own lives turn out and thus that we are responsible for the things that don't go well.
A non-racist would vote for 0bama because he's black. I would have said that I'm voting against 0bama because he's far too liberal on domestic issues and too weak on foreign policy, that I'm letting issues take priority over race. Clearly, I'm in denial, and I'm not just voting against Obama for the same reasons I voted against Kerry and Gore. Race must be the hidden reason - the article tells us that much about typical white people like me. I'll just sit here clinging to guns and God in my bitterness, like most people in flyover country, not caring if I'm racist.
Nearly four in 10 white independents agreed that blacks would be better off if they "try harder."
Just how dumb are the other six out of ten? Almost everyone I know, including many of my best friends and family members would be better off if they tried harder. Does that apply to everyone except black people, and blacks need to just give up because they can't succeed? I am shocked that anyone would think it's racist to believe that a black person could do better but non-racist to say he can't improve his life. Stanford University has an interesting way of defining "racist".
