I have friends and family who have bi-racial children who posted on Facebook or commented that they were so glad that they could show their kids a President that “looks like them.”
I asked how in the hell is that NOT racist? And to say that statement on Monday, MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. day was REALLY a travesty!
When you hold someone UP or DOWN due to their color or race, then you are doing them and those you espouse to, a GREAT DISSERVICE! I told them if you want to praise his creating more debt in four years than all the other past President’s combined - go ahead, if you want to praise his stance that babies who, by the GRACE OF GOD, survive an attempted abortion should still be KILLED - go ahead, but to praise him because of his “looks” is as about as RACIST as you can possibly get!
Of course, they just said they were proud of their heritage. I said, good, then when I say the same thing when a white President is elected, will you all support me in my proud heritage? Of course, then came the “that’s not the same” BS!
I simply said, “I proved my point!” And walked away!
Excellent post and yes you did prove your point
