I find it a little funny that people seemed to be so worried and appauled at the fact that some folks wouldn't vote for Obama because of his skin
color, yet ignored the fact that far more people actually did vote for him because of his skin color. Why is it not a problem to vote for a black man
due to his race when it's a huge problem not to vote for him for the same reason? Oh wait, I already know the answer to that.
Obama being black is a big reason that he won the election, though admittedly not the only reason. I'm sure that there were many people who voted for
Obama simply because he is black. The MSM was constantly bringing up the fact that many white people wouldn't vote for Obama just because of his skin
color, yet they almost completely ingored the fact that many black (and white) people would vote for him for that exact same reason. Somehow the
former is inconceivable, while the latter is perfectly fine. I'm willing to bet that the number of people who did vote for Obama due to race, far
outshines the number of people who didn;t vote for him for the same reason.
I have also noticed that many people like to imply racism if you don't support Obama. In fact, such a scenario seems to be a recurring theme. For me
personally, I don't like Obama because he is just a continuation of Bush and I believe that he is just as scandalous. It really has nothing to do
with race, so much as deceit. What really gets me, is that so many people were worried that McCain would only be a Bush II, yet here we sit with
George W. Obama.
About a year ago, I was talking politics with a friend's father (who happened to be black). When I was trying to explain to him that Obama has yet to
keep a single promise, he asked me if I was just upset that a white man wasn't in office. This is in spite of the fact that I had expressed my
dislike of Obama for being just like the white man before him, Bush.
