Just who are the racists?

Not to be outdone in their efforts to force Obama down the collective gullets of America, some black, elected officials are playing the tired old "race card". [READ MORE].

“He’s ‘not one of us?’” Mr. Meeks said, referring to a comment Sarah Palin made at a campaign rally on Oct. 6 in Florida. “That’s racial. That’s fear. They know they can’t win on the issues, so the last resort they have is race and fear.”

What a crock of bovine excrement. But don't take just my word for it, read the full quote in question from Gov. Palin:

“Our opponent,” Ms. Palin told donors in Englewood, Colo., “is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”

She added, “This is not a man who sees America like you and I see America,” she said. “We see America as a force of good in this world. We see an America of exceptionalism.”

For starters, I don't see the words "He's not one of us". Beyond that, Gov. Palin was speaking to donors, folks who happen to agree with her political position. She also happened to be speaking the truth.

Methinks the elected black officials are trying very hard to invent an issue and are once again resorting to the race card. They are trying to fire up fear in black voters and that my friends is the act of a racist. They are trying to play upon those weak minded whites who are gullible enough to believe that being white automatically makes you a racist.

Isn't it about time someone stood up and said 'enough is enough'? Haven't we had this bovine excrement thrown in our faces long enough?

Believing that Obama's relationship with a known and proven terrorist such as Bill Ayers shows a major lack of good judgement does not make you a racist. Believing that Obama's socialist policies will ruin America does not make you a racist. And voting for a white candidate instead of a black candidate does not make you a racist.

The definition of "racist" as listed by is as follows:

1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Perhaps if these elected, black officials would review the definition, spend less time looking for "coded" phrases that indicate racism and actually address the issues, they might be seen as a group worthy of serious consideration.

There are racists in America and they dwell amongst every race - not just whites, but there is no proof that they majority of Americans are racists. Isn't it time that we stop reacting like puppets every time some political charlatan falsely accuses us of being a racist?

Americans of all colors are first and foremost Americans. And folks, we deserve better than cheap rhetorical tricks from clowns who make their living feeding at the public trough.
