Interesting.

Somehow, conservatives are racist for wanting to change the welfare system to make sure it's only a temporary solution to help all people, including Black people (who make up the majority of welfare recipients), get back up on their own feet.

And somehow, suggesting that someone whose father was from Africa isn't black enough because his skin is lighter, and because he don't talk black dialect (unless he wants to), isn't racist (even if his voters disagree). Nor is suggesting that he should be serving coffee to those running the country, rather than being the one in the hot seat (the comment may have gotten Kennedy pissed off, but it was never brought to the media's attention). Nor yet a white man saying that he's blacker than the black man in the oval office.

I am not pro-Obama. I don't like the son of a bitch. I don't trust him as far as I could throw a tank. I don't want him in the White House. I don't give a damn what color his skin is, only the color of his soul.

My point is that I'm tired of the double standards. Conservatives are branded racists for shouting "You lie!" at a politician (and everybody knows you can tell when a politician is lying by whether or not their lips are moving). Yet liberals? Nope. Never called a racist for pretty much anything, even when they call then-Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice a "house nigger."

To tell the truth, by comparison with the rest of the world, America isn't even slightly racist. And if you look, really look, for honest-to-God racism, you'll see less white-on-black (or white-on-any-other-other-color) racism in this country than you'll see blacks being racist against everybody, including themselves.

Everybody just needs to sit down, shut up, and stop the hypersensitive accusations of racism where it doesn't exist. Maybe then the rest of us could do something about stopping racism where it does exist.
