I know this is a touchy subject so please forgive me if I have offended anyone. I just honestly want to know what you ladies think. I have friends of all nationalities that both agree and disagree with me. No, I'm not playing the "race card" lol because like our President, I too am multi-racial. So I see things from almost every angle of the spectrum...but seriously...is a lot of this anti'Obama propaganda ultimately fueled by racism? Because there are so soooooo many IRRATIONAL arguments against pretty much ANYTHING he says or does or proposes that it is ridiculous. I am left scratching my head in confusion by the absurdity of some of these rants. I mean come ON....look at the president we just got rid of. Look at the horrific mess he made of this country! Yeah we complained and talked about him and what not but we didn't have thousands of town halls and "tea parties" and protests...etc..etc.... I truly believe that not all,of course, but a lot of this dislike and hate for our president IS racism. I know there are plenty of people who genuinely do not agree with his methods/policies,...etc, but don't you have to be informed to be able to come to that decision? There are so many people out there who hate him just for the sake of hating him...but my question is...for what reason? Also, has the election of a biracial president helped or hurt race relations in the country?
