You realize that when people said this about Bush your type freaked. Any questioning of the President was treason. Now? You're all up in arms and
hate the president. Sorry, the majority of Americans aren't racists. Sorry only 56million people only voted for McCain because he's white. And
being a Republican you'll attack me for that last line BUT when you say people only voted for Obama because he's black it's God's word.
I didn't say he was voted in only because he was black. That was one of three reasons. The other two were hate of the current administration and
overwhelming media bias. People voted for Obama for one of those three reasons.
Is it possible that most people voted for obama because there really was nothing McCain/Palin had to offer?
And by the way, the poll numbers show this:
Black people voted for obama overwhelmingly.
White people actually voted about 43% for obama and 55% for McCain. Given the proportion of black to white population, the racial favoritism cancels
out to less than the margin of victory.
The fact that more white people voted for McCain than for Obama also makes it for an inconclusive case of whether this nation is really past racism.
Can't tell either way based on the results from white people. Black people are definitely still a little racist in the sense of favoring a black
president. But I guess saying that makes me racist, then again I'm neither white nor black, just like Obama
