Cliff Notes: If I don’t vote for Obama, it’s because I’m a race traitor, or worse. My response: stop being a racist and look at the facts.
How can you be a race traitor? I mean unless you side with these guys and their plans to take over earth or something...
Because there is only one race, and that is the Human race.
Did you know that there is more genetic difference between two cows in the same pasture than there is between a Inuit in Greenland and an aboriginal in Australia?
Humans are all really closely related to each other to the point that all humans aren't even the same species, we are all of the same SUB-species!!!! Homo-Sapiens-SAPIENS!
Did you know that what we consider "African" or "Black" are actually several genetically distinct groups of people! There are the Bantu, the San or the Khosian, and many others others that were once considered "black" but are very distinct in both culture and genetics!
Some fun facts for you to ponder!
I think your father-in-law is seriously misguided, but I appreciate and respect his taking the time to give you a detailed and honest-to-his-thinking account of his perspective.
I’m from a deep blue region of the country and involved in a deeper-blue industry, so I think I know the risks of being ostracized and professionally harmed by expressing my political opinions where they are deeply unpopular. (Many Freepers are otherwise situated and so don’t have that understanding.) The risks you face IMO require greater courage and yet are also the more important for the value of your voice being heard.
