    I feel that similar way, a good president he was not; and I do not agree with Carter in some aspects, but that changes nothing, nor should it.

    Re: Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

    Before passing judgment, I'd like to see some evidence of Carter's claims. IMO, all the accusations that the disagreements with Obama are based on racism are pretty ridiculous. From what I see, most who disagree with him, disagree because of ideology or because they do not like his policies. So, before Carter starts bringing in the race card, I would hope that he would have something substantial to back it up. Thus far, I see nada.

    I didn't say that, did I. I said that I believe there is more overt racism in the South. I certainly don't believe every person hates Blacks in S Carolina.

    Also, Black people can hate Whites too. But not every Black person. There are good and bad in every race.

    To think two little words could invoke such a response.

    I bet at this point, Wilson wishes he had chosen "**** off" instead of "You lie".

    Racism seems unlikely. I would say he was just stupid.

    In my lifetime, we have made progress, but we still have a long ways to go..
    What evidence is there that Wilson has racial bias or that his outburst was race-based?

    Does anyone want to back up their claim that Wilson's outburst was based on race?

    This is what I mean by irresponsible comments like the one Carter made. When you make wild accusations like Carter did, without any real proof of their validity, people will start to believe it and the word "racist" takes on a whole new and convoluted meaning. People will start to use it in situations when it does not really apply, and that only adds to the problem.

    With majorities in both houses and the Presidency, the left is in sore need of someone to beat up and vilify to help rally the troops. Wilson nominated himself and now they're wanting to wring as much as they can out of this rag. I have no doubt that there are dozens of people working right now to dig up dirt on the guy.

    I'm gonna say that Wilson goes to bed every night hoping and praying that Sarah Palin will say something (anything!) and a microphone is there to pick it up

    You stated, "I do think there is more overt racism in the South."

    Does this necessarily mean Wilson (the subject of this thread) is racist?

    We can only give it an educated guess. For one thing, he's from S Carolina so probably grew up in an era where open racism and segregation were every day realities. Also, looking at his face, my intuition tells me that he has a nasty streak. Then there's the fact that his emotions boiled over to the point where he had a disrespectful outburst on National TV.

    I lived in S Carolina once for 3 years back in 1978-1981. It was almost totally segregated in N Myrtle Beach at the time. My husband worked on a road crew and for a sign/billboard company. He told me that, at that time, in the absence of Black people that the word 'Nigger' was used in every day speech. That's the 'N' word in case the auto-censor bleeps it out.

    So would it be fair to call Obama a racist (an 'educated' guess) if I lived in Illinois for three years and overheard blacks demeaning whites? Doesn't that sound a tad bit ridiculous?
