Florida Girl Called "Racist" for Wearing McCain/Palin T-shirt


www.rightpundits.com

So this is what it has come down to. I was terribly afraid this would happen. A girl in New Smyrna Beach, Florida wore a McCain/Palin T shirt and was called a “racist” by several of her middle school classmates. She was also accused of only supporting the “white man.”

This doesn't surprise me. I wonder how many more racial incidents will occur in the coming days/weeks ahead.

This girl was apparently a campaign volunteer for the republican party in florida. The other volunteers gave her the shirt as a gift.


I suspect if Obama does not win the election that this particular incident will look like something off the disney channel.... it is in florida after all.

Just goes to show it is a two way street.

The only difference is that the media tends to report incidents against Obama quite a bit more than the ones against McCain.

It's certainly "uncool" to support McCain this time around. This just goes along with the unfortunate trend we've seen in the month leading up to November 4 with the girl in the article above this man and this woman being singled out. I'd say the lesson is to lay low, *no matter who you support.

I attended a law school that was about 50%-50% black and white.

In 2004, a number of black students wore t-shirts and stickers supporting Kerry for president. Some of the white students did, too. A (white) friend of mine chose to wear a Bush t-shirt, and was immediately accused of being racist. And then, BOTH candidates were white.

Why can't someone just have a different opinion? Why are they automatically racist?

So... this certainly shows why she supports the Gun Totin, Moose hunting Barracuda who likes to make lots of White Babies...

Sorry, but... racism is a two way street, it sucked being a minority as a white person...

It's not like this is the first time she has dealt with this if she is growing up the underdog...

I'll admit, I wouldn't support McCain Palin if I didn't know exactly what being White was like as a minority or what NYC was like Under Dinkins growing up...

No blanket statement on any individual persons... it sucks to be a minority period...

Is it really hard to understand why she would would support a woman like Palin?

I know this girls story...

she's a racist IF she doesn't like Rap

she's a racist IF she doesn't disrespect her own culture

she's a Racist IF.... she doesn't Screw her Black classmates...

Brooklyn 1988... now it's all of America...



People call it racism, but... it just stinks to be the odd man (in this case woman out)

Heck when I'm home in NY... I'm a liar and a bigot if in the Village I don't like to suck %^&K, somehow that makes me anti Gay


The Majority always rules... there will always be a struggle for power


Why does this suprise anyone?

What are people teaching their children? When things like this happen, you realize how people are voting for people just because they are the same race as you. It should be based on moral issues, not race issues.

I heard the most ridiculous incident the other day, which tops ALL of these "Racist" claims (which are currently being tossed around like Pumpernickel in a bread line.) This lady's daughter was out with her friends, and she was discussing the merits of Senator McCain over Senator Obama. She is around the typical College Age (18-22 I would assume), and she came home really upset. Why do you ask? Her friends yelled at her and called her a racist. Guess what the kicker is? This girl and her entire family are BLACK. So now even Black folks are racist for not supporting "Mack Daddy Obama" lol (In the words of Reverend James D. Manning).

Did she have any backwards letters carved into her face too?

This is news? How is this news?
Why do people seem to think that individuals have anything to do with politics?
What does typical middleschool drama have to do with the national election?
What was up with that whole flap over the Obama supporter carving a B into a McCain supporter's face? Wasn't that repodetly fake anyways? Why are we still discussing it? How is anyone giong to prove to me that this isolated incident in Florida is any kind of "canary in a coal mine"?
Why should anyone even care about these rediculous "so and so supporter does such and such to a supporter of the opposition".
We all know that there are these kinds of people out there and that low and behold, some of them just might have a political affiliation. It's not even a surprise to suspect that the political element is the only reason these reports are seeing the light of day.

People are responsible for their own actions...they always have been, so I don't see the point in repeating these rediculous clippings that seep their way up from the bottom of the cesspool.
