Alright, here it is. I am so sick of the liberals resorting to the mantra, you are a racist if you disagree with Obama. Jimmy Carter, Maureen Dowd, and Bill Cosby accused people who disagree with Obama and his policies, as being racists. I think that the nut, Jimmy Carter needs to join all the nuts at his peanut farm. I believe he'll be in good company. Dowd makes words up to incite racial tensions. Bill Cosby is usually above the fray with regard to race baited politics, but for some reason he decided to cash in on the stupidity of falsely accusing those of us who are against Obama's political policies as being racist, or being racially motivated. If you go by what liberals refer to as racism, then you could conclude that every black person who disagreed with George Bush was a racist as well. Now, I don't believe that. It seems to me that liberals are coming unraveled due to Obama's policies being dead in the water. We are all Americans. Conservatives disagree with liberals and vice versa, but none of this involves racism. This has nothing to do with race. These prominent liberals must stop this race baiting. This encouragement of devisiveness must stop!! Americans are created equal.
Here is an article by Gil Troy: Playing The Race Card Makes for Ugly Politics
Barack Obama's election to the presidency was supposed to usher in a new, more mature era of race relations, but it could not evoke nirvana. There's a growing chorus complaining that this summer's hostility to his stimulus package, to his health-care reform and to Mr. Obama himself is racist.
I think it's based on racism. There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president,” former president Jimmy Carter said, clearly forgetting the euphoria when Americans elected a black president.
New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd said she heard “an unspoken word in the air” when Republican Representative Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” during the President's speech to Congress last week: “You lie, boy!” She also located Mr. Obama “at the center of a period of racial turbulence sparked by his ascension.” In fact, Mr. Obama is at the center of a political storm sparked by his leadership – as all presidents have been.
American politics is a contact sport. The long, rich tradition of American centrism does not negate the equally long colorful tradition of American mudslinging and partisanship. It is unfair and itself divisive to impute racial motives to Mr. Obama's opponents without evidence. The shrill opposition reflects the high stakes surrounding the current debate, Americans' enduring ambivalence about big government and the ugly way modern politics plays out in the media, within the blogosphere and on the streets.
