Funny how you jumped all over my post and read it in a way that offended you.
I didn't say most people think a certain way when they see a biracial person. I was much more specific then that. What I actually pointed out was that
most people who stress the fact that Obama is only "half black" in conversations where his race comes up seem to have racist attitudes in other
regards. This is an observation, if you have seen things differently so be it.
However, you're insane notion that the people who bring up racism are the most racist is absurd. Your assertion that Republicans (btw I, at least, was
never talking in terms of political parties and view points) rarely if ever bring up race is ABSURD. Republican politicians? Fair to say they rarely
bring up race because it would be political suicide. Every day Republicans? I find, the vast vast majority of Republicans in my area have racist
There's nothing racist about pointing out and identifying racism. That's completely illogical and shows an obvious misunderstand of what the word
I can go on about how I find it's generally a certain type of person who's adamant about steering conversation away from the topic of racism and is
unusually insistent on the idea that its racist to point that kind of thing out, but I don't want to make too many assumptions...
Edit: The fact is this article took a race baiting tone by manipulating his quotes and the majority of responses in this thread jumped all over it.
They ignored Obama's acknowledgment that just like there are people who dislike him for his skin color (and their are, can't believe I see people here
DENYING it) there are also people who support him because of his skin color (very few people here are disputing that however, interesting).
