Why do you think the only reason why some people aren't voting for obama is because he's BLACK??? I am so tired of hearing that....it has nothing to do with his color....nothing.....I know some BLACK people that are voting for him because he is BLACK...now is that ok???? no it isn't...but no one says anything about that....I will be soooooo glad when this voting stuff is all over....and if he doesn't make it (which I think he will) that's all were going to hear well.. he didn't make it because he's BLACK.....give me a break!
I suppose it is possible that some people haven't heard this type of discussion. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I bet I've heard it 3 or 4 times a week since the campaign began. I guess it depends on who passes through your life daily and how comfortable they are saying it outloud in front of you. And a lot of voters vote based on one trait: maybe race, maybe the economy or maybe the candidates views on foreign policy. Doesn't make it right. It's just the way some people are.-L
Mimi: I am clearly not the only person who thinks this or has heard this. And did you miss the newstory this week about the men arrested because of their plot to kill 100 black people (many of them children) as well as Obama? Racism is alive and well in the US of A so yes, there are many, many people not voting for him because they can't get past the color of his skin. Many.
Casey Thank you!!! I relized today that I could have and should have done more during this election and it saddens me that I did not, especially with two major propositions, 4 & 8, here in CA.Mimi, you may not see it but there are people who will not vote for him because he is black just like there are people who would have not voted for Hiliary because she is a woman. And others who will not vote for him because they still believe he is Muslim or was raised by his Muslim father (both NOT true). We need change and it saddens me to think that there are some people that would have voted for the Democrate if only his skin was a different color. Thankfully most Democrats are more open minded then that. Did you not just hear about the plot to kill him...BECAUSE OF HIS SKIN COLOR!!!! Come on now.
Yes I have heard all of that...but you guys make it sound like the only reason why we don't vote for him is because he is black...trust me that's not the reason why I didn't vote for him......I also have heard the one about well if he makes it in office he won't be there long....you just can't believe everything you hear....
I don't think anyone was saying "Everybody" that's not voting for him is doing it for that reason, but some are. But if I'm not mistaken, didn't you say it's because he scares you? What about him scares you?
OK OK OK I just heard on the radio (I live in pataskala ohio) that some judge sealed the birth cerft. of OBAMA....so if he is on the up and up why would or should they seal anything??? Hmmmm so now you ask again why he scares me....here's just one reason....what else does he have to hide?
Hmmmm.... You'd think you'd see that on CNN if it was in fact true breaking news. And if it was true, it would mean he's fooled a whole lot of people and government entities over the years just so that he could someday be president. Pretty hard to believe....http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2008/jun/27/obamas-birth-certificate-part-ii/
