Even though a black man has been elected to the White House, white people are still being called Racist! Do you know of any other ethnic group that has used the race card as long as African Americans? When is enough, enough? What is it that black people want white people to do?
How many decades will this cry of racism from a small group of African Americans be heard?
We have politicians that are black serving in every position of the government. Many too are holding high positions in the corporate world. Many too own small businesses. Likewise, they have done well in the world of professional sports.
I think I speak for all when I say, the silent majority are tired of hearing your whining.
What are your thoughts on this subject? After you listen to this woman's bluster take a moment and share how you feel about this topic.
The headline here isn’t that an Obama campaign official is accusing Romney of *yawn* dog-whistle politics, it's that an Obama campaign official is openly and publicly accusing Romney supporters of racism.
Sen. Lucas can hide behind the word "fringe" all she wants, but the context of the situation tells us that by "fringe" she means a huge swath of Romney supporters in Virginia.
What prompted this divisive racial ugliness from the State Senator was her reaction to comments made by Governor Romney a few weeks prior about how Obama's lack of experience in the private sector makes him ill-suited to fix the economy -- something, by the way, I believed before Obama was elected and am absolutely certain of now.
So in reference to perfectly reasonable and logical criticism of Romney's, the Obama campaign official said the following:
What I am saying to you is Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to a segment of the population, who does not like to see people other than a White man in the White House or any other elected position.
Let’s be really clear about it… let’s be real clear Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like Barack Obama in any elected or leadership position. We know what’s going on here and some people may be afraid to say it but I am not. I am not afraid to say it.
He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position. Senator Miller said it before she died and I agreed with her. They don’t want President Barack Obama in office as President and for all the reasons that you and I and a lot of other people understand.
