Should it smart guy? Let us break it down for you ok
Whites came to the Americas, and after the American Indian taught us to survive here. We started seeing them as "less human" as us. We started
calling them savages while we damn near made them extinct.
Years later we started importing Negro’s as pieces of property, we raped the woman lynched them for even looking at white woman. They were not
allowed to do Jack Squat. What blacks dominate in our society, they fought to achieve from an established handicap that to this day we still see from
time to time.
To be inclined to vote your race is understandable hell we have always been that way and although one may NOT be an Obama voter, not every vote that
Obama gets from whites, is a testament to white guilt, it is a testament to his ability. Moreover, I think you trying to make this a racial issue
proof that it is always out there.
If Obamas message were packaged in a young charismatic white person, he would have been the winner long ago already.
Now you know what WHITES would do to show racism if circumstances were reversed?
We would NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE at all and we would boycott voting on a city-state and federal level.
Blacks have always been very active in the process and voted for the white candidate who best reflected their values but they always voted.
When they had a Black candidate, hell why not vote for your Black Candidate. That is to be expected as it would be for us doing the same thing but
RACISM is like Atheism when they actively talk about NOT believing in God, Racism is actively NOT voting for ANYONE until that Black or White is put
back in his or her place and not allowed to run for office period. We whites actually did that sort of thing. We even called it "Black listing" We
black listed Hollywood Actors we thought were communists during McCarthyism. Entertainers in Vegas and Sports figures Athelets and Politicians.
When a country has a legacy of being that way to people,, can ya blame them for bringing it up.? Sure Blacks today aren't the ones that should be
complaining but consider this,,,
the Blacks today would be a lot better off had their parents and grand parents had the resources to give their offspring a higher platform, social
status, inheritance etc as we had. They are just NOW getting to enjoy that kind of priveledge but what they have got they have earned by pulling it
up from lead weighted boot straps without any help from the Dad that was never there with no wind at their back.
You are either a Racist or not, we do not have a word for Non Racist, that is just a given the normal state of being. (or should be)
Regarding worries about the race card being played against whites who do not vote for Obama.
That is when it becomes a racial issue.
Is it true?
May be for some but if you think Blacks are using it as a lever to get whites to vote for Obama?? Giving us a reputation to live up to, is one thing,
seeking the approval of it is another.
I just don't think when you are alone in a voting booth where no one is looking over your shoulder, no one will know what you voted, or who you voted
for but we all know when we are in there,,
We all vote for the best candidate and the best candidate is always.
In-spite of their color or their party,
The best candidate is ALWAYS
