WASHINGTON - Danielle Ross was alone in an empty room at the Obama campaign headquarters in Kokomo, Ind., a cellphone in one hand, a voter call list in the other. She was stretched out on the carpeted floor wearing laceless sky-blue Converses, stories from the trail on her mind. It was the day before Indiana's primary, and she had just been chased by dogs while canvassing in a Kokomo suburb. But that was not the worst thing to occur since she postponed her sophomore year at Middle Tennessee State University, in part to hopscotch America stumping for Barack Obama.
Here's the worst: In Muncie, a factory town in the east-central part of Indiana, Ross and her cohorts were soliciting support for Obama at malls, on street corners and in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and they ran into "a horrible response," as Ross put it, a level of anti-black sentiment that none of them had anticipated.

If the NO!bama campaigners want to find some real trouble, they should try campaigning around here!
READ B.O. Hussein’s writings and Rants and You quickly find
B.O. Hussein is the primary Ringleader of RACISM! B.O. Hussein is trying to hide his on Extreme Racism over the many long past years. Remember, he Loves the new Pastor of “His” Chicago church. The new Pastor makes rev. Wright look main stream!!!!!
But I thought this was going to be a BIG democrat year!
Is this for real? I'm skeptical.
So, reactions against his "blackness" are billed now as "racism". Gee, whadda suprise, eh?
Ward Connerly championed CA's Prop 209's -- Repealing Preferential Quotas (Affirmative Action) involving state monies. The press beat the living snot out of him, and the black groups called him an Uncle Tom. Cartoonists portrayed him wearing a white KKK hood. Ya think the same squawking now about "racism" encountered against BO were fighting off the grotesque treatment of Ward Connerly? Eh?
Obama is billed and promoted as "black", and his supporters are shocked, I tell you *shocked* that people are responding DIRECTLY to EXACTLY the issue his handlers have promoted. And now wanna cry crocadile tears over "all that racism goin on..."
Fer cryin' out loud! BO hasn't really supplied anything of substance for people to respond to on ISSUES. They have been told repeatedly it's all about our "First Black President".
The BO Platform (of Race) is equivalent to a "When Did you Stop Beating Your Wife" set-up.
And this coverage of "reactions" to the "Blackness of Obama" campaign would be funny if it weren't so pathetically stupid and campaign serving.
Made as a statement of fact from the "objective" reporter.
That is correct! Racism was never interjected into the campaign until BO's spiritual advisor Rev.Wright brought it in and BO didn't reject it outright. It festered into a 'blacks blame whitey' for everything bad that ever happened to themselves. The chickens have come home to roost and it's way past time.
Exactly. They are phoning, canvassing PRIMARY voters.
His rantings are probably what caused her to quit going to that church. If the public found out, she would lose the ratings to the boatload of non-black viewers. She has been awfully silent lately, which makes me think she is second guessing her stumping for Obama with the Wright scandal.
Hillary’s people are still at it. It’s a “two-fer”: They sabotage Obama, and lay the blame on America being too racist to be ready for a black President yet
Is BO a smoker?
Way back when it was apparent that Obambi was a contender, I tried to get any lib that I knew to make this bet with me, even with odds.
If Obama is the nominee, the dhimmirats will run on the idea that anyone that doesn’t support him is a racist.
No takers. They know who they are.
Obama is black? What next, Kerry served in Vietnam?
You'll not hear more disgust or contempt than you will from a leftist victim black person when you mention that you would vote for someone like Clarence Thomas for president.
Always a trusty left-wing Washington Post calling card - the dark fear of racists, Nazis, so-called extremist Christians, etc... just lurking around the corner to upset their Golden Boy Obama.
False claims of racism are more common than the real thing. Especially in a case like this where there is no way to verify.
Now you're just making stuff up!
Huh? He did? Really?
