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.

I bet if you polled the student population at “empty shoe” (MTSU), you would find that the chick in the lede to this story is about the only Obama supporter in the place.
I guess they are not talking about “Reverend Wright’s” racism.
Well, it IS the only reason to not vote for Obama, right? (and before anyone can misinterpret) </sarc>
Oh, so Democrats are racists, huh??
Couldn't help but giggle.
Oh, you mean the racism of Obama’s pal the Rev Wright?
Probably the two arthritic Pomeranians owned by an elderly lady who supports Hillary.
On the other hand, this article plays right into Hillary's strategy: "This man is not electable and will lose in November".
Boo hoo. You want racism or "anti-black sentiment"? Just mention the name "Clarence Thomas" to a leftist.
Yeah...the abject racism of Obama’s mentor and his minions scares the hell out of me too...
PMS-NBC is telling whites that unless they vote for Nobama they are racists. Black racism, however, is given a pass. 95% of blacks voted for Nobama, but that’s not racist - it’s black tribal behavior (aka: “Black Community.” Come November and the privacy of the voting booth, I believe that there will be a huge backlash on Nobama from the “White Community.”
“Racism alarms Obama’s backers.”
I understand completely.
The deep and obsessive racism of many blacks “alarms” me too....
I think one of Senator Obama’s closest supporters—Oprah Winfrey—will likely come to the rescue of the Senator. I don’t think she’s too thrilled about the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s rantings, either.
I will never vote for a black person who was raised to hate America during his or her early years, then taught to hate white people by his or her minister for the last twenty years.
...but I am the one who YOU are going to get.
What do you expect from “typical white people”?
Why are whites who wont vote for Obama racists when 90%+ of all blacks who are voting for Obama are just displaying their pride?
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?
There was a funny op-ed by some Obama campaign person in the WSJ the other day.
One of the points that he made was that Obama clearly holds opposite views to Rev Wright.
Oh... had to stop right there and laugh.
And where is the alarm over Barry’s 20 year relationship with a racist?
It ain’t the racism, baby, it’s that other “ism” that worries me: socialism.
Ooooo boy... now you’ve done it.
Heck, the DUmmies are already claiming that calling him “Barry” was racist.
If they see someone comparing him to a big eared cartoon monkey, their heads will explode.
When massive intercontinental nuclear war breaks out, this is the kind of reporter that will start the story with "83 year old widow Ms. Georgia Halbrun took her black pomeranian Winkles for a walk down 4th Street as she has every morning for the last 15 years ..."
Now they know what it feels like to be a Republican in a country controlled by a left-wing moonbat liberal media.
Between this and the West VA story earlier, the template is in place. Anyone not supporting BHO is a racist.
This year may get very, very ugly in America.
They have got it pretty good because any criticism of Barry will be called racism.
There are racists in our country. It’s a fact. The rants of these fools in the MSNBC report are as ugly and evil as the ones by Jeremiah Wright and his ilk.
I don’t give a damn what color Obama is- I believe he’s a marxist and that is why he’s not suited to be our president.
