Skip to comments.Is it Racist to Disagree or is it your Obligation?

Why is a white person considered racist for expressing opposition to President Obama because he is black?
Its not racist, however, to them, psychologically, the fact that he’s losing more and more support among white voters at the same time he proposes things they agree with and benefits them (or at least they feel it would benefit them) makes it seem racist. It’s not that they’re arbitrarily saying its racist knowing its not, its that they truly believe it is racist, despite the fact it isn’t.
They’ve got nothing else.
That’s why it’s “racist”
I don’t disagree with the color of his skin; I disagree with the color of his Commie RED policies and agenda. :)
Because too many white people have voted to euthanize their race.
It has become, defacto, shameful to be white in the U.S.A.
If Blacks that oppose Obama are “uncle toms”
then whites that opposed Bush are?
It is your DUTY to oppose evil no matter what shape or form it takes.
The answer is because you’ll back down if you’re called a racist and a black won’t.
For the same reason that:
The NAACP is not racist, but a NAAWP would be.
The United Negro College Fund is not racist, but a he United Whitey College Fund would be.
It would be racist to give preference to white people when hiring, but not to give preference to black people through affirmative action.
The TV channel BET is not racist, but a channel called WET would be.
It’s racist to use the word “ni**er” if you’re white, but not if you’re black.
A black conservative is an Uncle Tom, but a white liberal is enlightened.
A white person that voted for McCain last year was racist, but a black person voting for Obama wasn’t.
It’s the double standard.
As long as we continue living under the fascist PC Double Standard set up by the libtards, there will be no true advancement toward a “post-racial” society.
The heinous crimes committed in Knoxville that resulted in the first conviction last week unfortunately were not covered by the MSM because it was a horrific black on white crime. If the races had been reversed, it would have been wall to wall coverage. One AP article I read (the only national news org who said anything about the trial) mentioned that “some conservative bloggers and white supremacist groups” were upset with the lack of coverage.
Unfortunately, the first defendant got life without parole and the jury (which by the way was about half black) did not decide to impose the death penalty, although they could have.
Were the racial roles reversed, I have no doubt there’d be riots and violence, but the white families of the victims expressed their “disappointment” with the no death penalty decision.
If you don't accept liberals' definitions of reality - they can't foist lies on you. Or on to us, either.
It's time to stand up to the race baiters - the professional "chip on the shoulder" guys, the "guilt trippers" and the bullshi--ers.
Remember when Jesse, Al and other race-baiters at first said the 0 wasn’t black enough? Your post leads to:
He isn’t too white, he isn’t too black, he’s too RED.
I suspect some folks just wake up in the morning and WANT to be a victim... sadly, it is a way for them to validate their existence...
You have to admit, Obama is about the stupidest man in history to serve as President. It's the dope ~ jellied his brains.
Does that every single time.
Racism here, you make the call:
The Illinois senator won 43 percent of white voters, 4 percentage points below Carters performance in 1976 and equal to what Bill Clinton won in the three-man race of 1996. Republican John McCain won 55 percent of the white vote.
Fully 96 percent of black voters supported Obama and constituted 13 percent of the electorate, a 2-percentage-point rise in their national turnout. As in past years, black women turned out at a higher rate than black men.
Because Democrats are the racists. They race bait, and they put their boy in there so that they could race bait, every time someone speaks out against his policies, it makes zero, in their minds, untouchable and they can slip their entire agenda right in using that plan.
Understand, if like most Americans, the whole of America were to become truly colored blind, the Dems would be history forever. Racism holds them together, gives them their power.
I don’t care what they say. I, you and everyone else has the right and responsibility to do what we feel is right.....regardless of color. Ignore their comments concerning race, it’s just used to divide. Won’t work this time around.
It is racist to oppose collectivism.
It is sexist to oppose collectivism.
It’s bad for the environment to oppose collectivism.
It is selfish and materialistic to oppose collectivism.
It is isolationist and/or unilateralist to oppose collectivism.
It is stodgy, old-fashioned, and uncool to oppose collectivism.
It is stupid to oppose collectivism. Ignorant too.
It is unscientific to oppose collectivism.
It is fascistic to oppose collectivism.
It is wrong and in fact evil to oppose collectivism.
So...I guess that makes me a feminist hating, homophobic, white American gun toting male. Deal with it.
As long as we continue living under the fascist PC Double Standard
The actual term is POLITICALLY CORRUPT when someone else can dictate what you can think, say and do; overriding free thinking, lawful behavior and your First Amendment freedoms.
When a person puts EVERYTHING in terms of race, then that person becomes racist by definition IMHO.
For this reason, the racists are the ones calling racism. For most white people, it isn't about race at all (in fact he is half white). It's about ideology, and two different directions for the USA.
Yesterday at work a black gal said that we were opposing him because he was black. I told her that her statement was racist. She never said another word.
we are in a racial war. The President is a partizen racist.
It is life or death.
Ummm, he is half white, so he is therefore considered white. (He is just a rich white kid from Hawaii.)
So if someone is considered “white”; they could not possibly be racist if the oppose Senator Obama’s radical left wing policies.
(What does it mean to “white after all?
The only people I have seen with truly white skin are mimes such as Marcel Marceau; and Michael Jackson.
Most humans have different shades of tan, peach and darker colors.)
Well, let me put it to you this way ...
I had lunch with a coworker recently whom I consider to be an intelligent person with good analytical skills. He is also a black man. I’ve never seen or heard him give any indication that he feels regularly discriminated against. He doesn’t carry a chip on his shoulder. He doesn’t have an “attitude.”
The waiter served water to another table before ours. This coworker decided that the waiter was a racist who was avoiding serving a thirsty black man. I didn’t know one could be racist in waiting tables. The incident changed my opinion of that coworker and not in a good way.
The moral of the story is that a formerly reasonable man suddenly sees racism in the smallest of circumstances. Welcome to post-racial Amerika.
In this video see how it is okay and agreed (publically) that White males should be discriminated against, these are members of the US government using my tax dollars to deprive people like me of equal opportunity and liberty.
And, these SON-OF A-BITCHES wonder why I'm buying guns and ammo?
It is my duty as an American citizen...though I haven’t had to do too much disagreeing in public yet. Easier said than done.
I don't disagree with the color of his skin; I disagree with the color of his Commie RED policies and agenda.
Obama had a black father and a white mother. He is not black and he is not white. He is both. That is not being racist. My father was Italian my mother German therefore, we were not Italian or German...we were both.. Ther racist card is getting old and people are getting tired of it. I criticized Dubya a lot...it was NOT racist. it was my right to do so as an American citizen.
F*** Obama. Thats what I think. Whatever you think makes no difference to me.
Without perceived white racism, and slimy liberal politicians, many minorities would have to GO BLACK TO WORK!
Never...repeat never...accept the left’s premise. If you do you have already lost your argument. Make them prove their premise first. They CANNOT! and thereby hangs the tale.
Where's the profit in that?
This has nothing to do with racism. It’s all about freedom and the destruction of our country by arrogant, in-your-face corrupt politicians out to steal our freedom. They were elected to represent the American people. They, are, in fact, representing their own self-interests. Neuter them in 2010; vote the rest out in 2012.
Sacramento Tea Party 8/28/98
To avoid violating such a silly definition of racism is quite tricky for someone who is not white. It requires politically schizophrenic support for Bush (43), Clinton, Bush (41), Reagan, Carter, Ford, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, and the rest of them.
The real question is whether opposition is do to policies or skin color.
Were black people opposed to Bush because of his skin color or his policies?
Are white people opposed to ZerO due to his policies or his skin color?
With DumBO, he is half white, so, racism can be only half of it. The perception that only white people oppose ObozO is because so few blacks do. I have been to tea parties and town halls where the best arguments against ZerOcare were made by blacks and democrats.
Is this the "Michael Jaxson burn in he!! thread"?
I'm SO confused... :-)
