Posted on 10/28/2008 6:34:47 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
It is no surprise the media is going full throttle on the racism issue in this final week of the campaign. There seems to be concern among liberals that usual democratic voters will pull the lever for John McCain. NY Daily News writer Denis Hamill wrote an article today illustrating his concern that his white liberal contemporaries were defecting to McCain. Hamill emphasizes in each example that these Democrats are voting McCain because of Obama's race. (my emphasis added):
But we're nervous. We're Jewish and I spoke to my parents down in Florida today. They're voting for McCain."
"Because he's white," said the wife. "Same with my parents."
"They just won't vote for a black man," the guy said. "And they're Democrats! Never voted Republican before!"
If it were an isolated incident, I wouldn't mind.
But the woman at my table added that the only one of her three sons who was a registered Democrat was voting for McCain because he was white.
And I've been hearing stuff like that for the past few months. What I hear banging around Queens is not, of course, a scientific survey. It's anecdotal. But after a while you feel a disturbing vibe.
"Most of the guys at my law firm are voting for McCain," said a lawyer I know. "Not for any specific issue. Because he's white. No, make that because he's not black. It's scary because these are educated people."
He said his own wife was voting for McCain for the same reason. And she's a teacher.
Other educated white people have told me that "it's too soon" for a black man to be president. Or, "I thought it would happen in my kids' lifetimes, not mine."

as i learned in college,
all white people are racists.
So now all the PUMAs are racist — they are going to love that! They are already mad at Hussein and this will not help.
No they are not racist. Unless not wanting a commie government makes you racist.
Old news. The rule for some time has been that anyone who doesn’t vote for BO is a racist, and is committing a Thoughtcrime.
all white people are racists.
... and it is impossible for “people of color” to be racist, since they don’t (allegedly) have the institutions in their pocket to enforce racists decisions.
I have not heard anyone say anything like this. It sounds like made-up hype to me.
So, this jerk claims that tons of his liberal friends are calling him and telling him that they are racists?
Somehow, I doubt it. That is just about as improbable as it gets.
Pete hamill shouldn’t even be writing for a living. A decade or so ago, he was caught red-handed making up a character out of whole cloth. he claimed he had interviewed a guy who lived in an apartment directly underneath the Cyclone roller coaster at Coney Island.
Guy didn’t exist. Apartment didn’t exist. Story was total BS.
Newsday axed him as a result, but the Daily News’ standards are apparently low enough to seat him at a terminal.
Maybe Hamill is the founder of a new Obama action group: Fabulists for the Fraud.
Communism is a race. If you are not a communist, then you must be a racist.
you’ve never experience racism
until you’ve been on the downside of
a chinese female.
This is akin to the lame paper-reporters who use the ...”I was in a cab and the cabbie said.....”
This crap is usually a mmade up conversations to fit whatever the reporters bias is.
I don't think Odinga has the juice to make it to the finish.
Play the because he's black if you want, but we all know now that it's because he's RED
Praise the Lord for their very stupid moves...
So I guess the 95% of blacks that vote for a Mulatto are not racist !
No matter what your views, you will be accused of being racist.
You are guilty of racism until you prove yourself innocent, and you can never prove yourself innocent.
All I can say is...If it were Ayers running on the Dem ticket against Michael Steele on a Conservative ticket, what would they call me if I voted for Mr. Steele?
When McCain wins, there will be riots.
