can we talk about racism

Angryman added:

This is the bottom line where this election is concerned and it really pisses me off. I was raised in an atmosphere of what I call; “Passive Racism”. That means that while none of my immediate family would ever treat a man differently one on one or disrespect a man who treated them with respect just because his skin color was different; I spent my young life listening to an almost constant stream of racist humor and stereotypical digs at African-Americans and most other races and cultures that were not our own. This can create quite a conflict for a child and it did for me. BUT! When I was no longer a child; I stopped thinking as a child and I began forming my opinions from my own experience and common sense. Unfortunately; maturity and thinking for one’s self is not the Republican’s forte as can be easily seen by the jumping; smirking; pouting chananagans dispalyed by Lyin’ Mitt in his public appearences. In many ways; this is a contest of the adults against the spoiled, pampered children. Much like that Old School Dad; I believe the best thing to do with spoiled, misbehaving children who embarrass their parents in public; as the Republicans embarrass all real adults in America today is to spank those young welps and send them home until they grow up enough to understand that hurting peoples feelings and publically degrading them only serves to degrade one’s self; lessen the strength of one’s own arguments and cause the rest of the world to stand in amazement at the frivilous behavior we are forced to put up with here; in the most powerful, wealthy nation on Earth.
I recently was in contact with a friend from the United Kingdom and this is what he wrote when I asked him how folks in brittain see our Presidential election:
“Hello! You’re in luck, because US current affairs has been taking up a significant portion of media attention for some time now. Here in Britain, Obama has 90% support to Mitt Romney’s 7%, though our government has made it clear they’re on Romney’s side. I see the American political system with a combination of horror and astonishment. Our Conservative Party is bad enough, but how is it possible to have a party so consistently and openly agressive towards the lower half of society, towards women and towards the elderly as a major political force? There is a system which makes any tax rise so difficult that social justice is impossible, big business has so much undue influence (essentially buying votes in Congress) and a majority of the public lack the will to support anything better. Romney has the nerve to give lectures about what is “morally right”, about paying tax and dependency on the state when he pays ridiculously limited tax, comes from an alternative religion (which he expects to be tolerated) and advocates economic policies that could be the ruination of the country. Obama certainly has good intentions. But both political circumstance and his own centrism results on an unfortunate lack of progress. Take Obamacare: that was long overdue reform of health insurance, but only universal healthcare would do away with the injustices and human tragedies that market economics create in healthcare. That isn’t just my view; I’d say the majority of the British public would agree with my perspective. I’ll be sure to keep up with your blog and write a couple more posts on the election myself. Thanks!”
I thought you might appreciate hearing that we are not alone in our revulsion. AMS

    Please explain how four years ago the American people elected him even though he was black but now we’re all racist because we don’t like what he’s done to the country even though he is black. You don’t make any sense. Race doesn’t have anything to do with it. He is getting ousted because he sucks as a president and everybody knows it obviously except you and your left wing minnions that are blinded by their hatred of a capitalist America

      He wasn’t elected four years ago despite his race. He was elected because he was the best choice; obviously; and the fact that he is black was just fortunate; very fortunate. We have been waiting for years for the right black man to come along but of course as Democrats; we would never propose a man for president unless he was well qualified for the job. So he was elected PARTLY because he is a black man; not in spite of it. You aren’t racist because you disapprove of his policies. You are racist because even though his policies have been a great success for the people; you and Mitt refuse to admit it and you refuse to take him on in a fair campaign. When you guys feel the need to spread one long series of lies and half truths and have no concrete plan of your own; it shows that you are not only acting out of your racism but out of fear and desperation. You don’t take the job of President unless you are sure you can do the job. Vague statements like, “I’ll create twelve million jobs” and saying things like “America is the greatest country in the world.” do not a policy make. Winging it because you think you are a star isn’t enough. Striking out at our allies and threatening military action prematurely does not a foreign policy make. The thing is; nobody believes that you guys want Obama out just because you don’t like his politics. You wouldn’t be so despaerate if that was the case. You want him out most of all because you are afraid of the success he has had and the fact that the American people have found a champion to fight against your Fascist agenda. You fear that Barack Obama will be the catalyst for the destruction of your plans for world domination. And a black man too. Unacceptable for guys like you who think that your money buys you the right to rule and makes anything you say true even when it is a blatant lie. “How dare America not believe the Grand Old Party? Grand Theft Old Party is more to the point? Your arrogance has brought you to your knees; and as with all tyrants before; you have seriously misjudged the gulibility of the American people.

        Is that response to me? So now I’m a racist, a tyrant and I seek world domination? Seriously man you need a new hat that doesn’t restrict the blood flow to your brain. I could care less what color the man’s skin is, I don’t like Socialism and tyranical government from Democrats or Republicans for that matter. I am not a republican, I didn’t pick Mitt Romney, I don’t like Mitt Romney. Yes I voted for him because I like Obama even less. I think he’s wrong for America because he pushes ever larger government which means less and less freedom for you and I. I treasure my freedom. To me it is gift from God not a byproduct of a benevolent government that seeks to make me a ward of the state. You can think what you want, but that doesn’t make it true. I’m sure there are lots of people that don’t like him just because he’s black, I get it, but that doesn’t mean you hate black people because you don’t like HIM. How racist are most black people that vote FOR him just because he is black? That’s not racist? Obama got a larger percentage of white vote than Romney got of blacks. Why aren’t you bitching about that? Because it fits your agenda and thats way more important than the truth. I come here to your blog because I enjoy open, honest debate. That is very difficult when you can’t even recognize truth anymore. I thought better of you.
