I don't believe it's racist to disagree with the president on the issues.
I do believe that it's racist to say that "No matter what the evidence show to the contrary, Obama was born in Kenya and can not have been a natural
born citizen of the United States and is therefore ineligible to be President".
There is a huge amount of racist undertones in that belief, as well as a huge amount of irrational belief.
Facts don't lie, but people will lie about and dismiss the facts. Reasonable people base their conclusions on what the facts say, not on what what
they want to or don't want to believe.
As far as my personal experience with racism and bigotry goes, the most amount of it I've personally experienced comes from white people. I'm part
Cherokee Indian, and I wear glasses, and am not very physically attractive and many have said I must be a retard because I look like a retard and
treated me accordingly.I've always been very unpopular. For instance, because I don't have a girlfriend, white people will call me a faggot.I've
also always been the one everybody picked on in school because I looked like a retard.
White people expect everybody to follow their expectations of how they think people should look and behave. If you don't, they will do everything
they can to put you down through insult and ridicule. You see this phenomena on any board like this or other boards all the time. You see this in
politics all the time, such as when liberals start insulting and ridiculing Sarah Palin. That's the way they are. They are extremely quick to judge
people and slow to understand. They can't understand a concept of letting a person be themselves and express themselves in their own way. Their rules
state that you've got to express yourself in a certain way to be accepted as credible, and if not, again, you will be berated and ridiculed to no
I've had very little experiences with other races though, but for the most part they've treated me better than white people have and have treated me
with more respect. but I haven't really lived in places like a ghetto or a large city. All my life I've lived in small towns.
When I went to Germany, I was also treated with more respect than people in America ever have treated me. I didn't get insulted or berated at all.
But of course, I only stayed for three weeks, so I don't know if that's normal or not.
That's my experience with racism and bigotry.
There's a lot more to it, of course, but a lot of it is too personal for me to talk to about it.
