Something to ponder about the "racist" issue

More and more, we are hearing from the lefties that if Barack Obama loses the presidential election, it will be on account of racism.

In fact, just this Friday, columnist Deborah Douglas of the Chicago Sun-Times penned a charming piece entitled Blame deep-seated racism if Obama loses. In her column, Douglas castigates those nasty right-wingers and Republicans for unloading on her boy, Barack. Ooops, am I allowed to use "boy" in this context?

There is just one blaring problem with Douglas' foolish logic: Republicans and other people on the right wouldn't vote for Barack Obama if he were the whitest white guy from the planet Whitey, because his race is not an issue; his politics however, most certainly are. So if it is not the conservative/Republican vote that will sink Obama, then who is it that is not going to vote for Barack Obama? Certain white DEMOCRATS, that's who! You don't think the party of slavery and Jim Crow is going to leave its roots behind that easily do you? And Ms. Douglas, I'm not through with you yet. In your screed against racism, you forgot one other important nugget, and that is the 95%+ of black Americans who are going to vote for Barack Obama; in many cases, solely because of the fact that he is black. Is it not just as racist to vote for someone based on the color of his skin, as opposed to voting against him for the same reason?

You shouldn't be too surprised at this opinion of Deborah Douglas. This is the same woman who, in another column from earlier this year, said this about Obama's racist and America-hating church formerly headed by Jeremiah Wright:
To [Christoper] Hitchens and others who would misinterpret the basic and authentic Christian message of Trinity, I say back off. You don't know who you're messing with. You're denigrating the best of black America. You're criticizing God-fearing folk who value education and put their money and time where their mouths are in ministering to the community. These so-called critics are the same types who castigate black people for failing to address problems that plague the community, including education, HIV/AIDS and financial responsibility.
You mean that "basic and authentic Christian message" that HIV/AIDS was spread among black people by the U.S. government? That one? You know, if we are going to be branded as racists no matter what we do, then we might as well go ahead and do the right thing, which is vote against Barack Obama. I am still having trouble bringing myself to utter the words, "Vote for John McCain," but I have little trouble urging you to vote against his opponent.

Good Day to You, Sir

I'm impressed you combined the words foolish and logic and made it work! lol

She's a dolt on this one, that's for sure. Funny how when people see what Obama is really about they tend to cool their jets a bit...

If he loses it will be because enough people wised up or figured out they were being played by a con man.
