Admit it, Racism is a factor in this election.

Let's all admit it. Racism is a factor in this election. It's not right and it shows we still have a long way to go.

From what I read, something like 90% of African Americans are voting for Senator Obama. If that isn't pure racism, nothing is.

Perhaps African Americans can rise above this someday and follow in the example of White Americans of whom the great majority vote on issues rather than race.

When that day comes, I will celebrate the end of racism in America. In the meantime, let's keep hope alive!

Racism is clearly a factor. I refuse to vote for that jive turkey honkey Obama.

You clearly didn’t get the memo. Only whites can be racists and the only chance they have to redeem themselves is to vote for Obama while proclaiming that America is ready.

Well, dunno about Racism, but certainly a bigoted idea.

If racism is, sexism is. It’s baloney either way, supposedly the battle of those who dislike 10% of the population vs. those who dislike 50%.

Of course it is. It has always been that since the day the black guy got in the race. If you are white and you do not vote for him, there is ONLY ONE REASON AND ONE REASON ONLY, he was black and you are a racists. Nothing else. Not that he is unfit and untrained and simply is an idiot in an empty suit. It is and always will be about race. After he loses to McCain-Palin, it will be the talk of the MSM, how racist America IS AND STILL IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE, racist against the black guy. Of course now, if a black conservative were running and won, he would be an uncle Tom, having given in to white America, and thus not a black brother.

I bet it is closer to 95%

It’s not about race. Its about background and integity. Obama has no experience doing anything useful other then stirring the pot!

I have seen some polls that indicate that Obama may NOT be getting as much of the Black vote that many may have anticipated. I believe in Florida, if you looked at the internals in some of the latest polls, Blacks only supported him by 85%, which to me is rather low considering the fact that most Democrat candidates in the past (all White), have gotten at least that much of the Black vote.

Could there be something of a backlash against Obama? Perhaps he is not "Black" enough (50%), or maybe that he wasn't raised in the typical "Black Experience". Not sure, but it will be interesting to see the final results.

The figures against Hillary -— another liberal -— were 96% blacks voting for Obama.

It’s staggering racism.

A great deal of it has to do with black preaching. I was astounded to hear black pundits observe that Jeremiah Wright was not even considered a radical by most of Black America, that, in fact, the average black church is full of political diatribes against "rich white men." With a few notable exceptions, the black pulpit is keeping racism alive in America.

Maybe so, but not with me. I would love to elect a Black American to the Presidency—and many are highly qualified—but not Obama.

Racism is a factor for many Obama supporters.
Age-ism is a factor for many McCain supporters.
Feminism is a factor for many Palin supporters.
Plagiarism is a factor for many Biden supporters.

it’s higher than 90%

“what” folks are and identify “as” shapes their perspective always and usually in the end trumps everything

i have argued this here with moderate freepers since the day I joined 8 years ago

No see the Republicans scare/trick the minorities into voting for them they aren’t there because they believe in anything they are just fools/traitors. GOP is only for whites really all minorities belong to the Dems.

Affirmative action (aka affirmed racism) is the only way Hussein can hope to emerge as the victor. Race is the only card obama plays.
