    I do too.

    It's been too long since we had a good Sarah Palin gaffe.

    You might suspect he had some racial resentments based on seeing his pastor and spiritual mentor foaming at the mouth at the idea of Hillary Clinton, a white woman, getting nominated to run for president.

    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 from what I see here, the argument is that Wilson is from the South so an educated guess would say he is racist?

    I'll re-ask my question: Do citizens from any given region live under uniform ideals?

    Also, how do facial expressions and emotions boiling over tell someone a person is racist?

    I'm just giving my opinion. Yes, I think intuition based on subtle nuances of expression or tone of voice can tell a lot.

    I haven't met the guy, just saw that one clip, but I do suspect that he may very well have some racial problems with Obama. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Also, the fact that the comment that Obama was making was regarding illegal aliens is another tip off. He obviously also has strong feelings about them, most of whom are Mexican as we all know.

    Carter is an old fool, why do they give him a stage in the media?
    He should be talking to the walls.

    "'I think it's based on racism,' Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. 'There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.'"
    He doesn't seem to have a positive view of Americans to think 'many of them' have a problem with a non white President ....

    He is certainly not a positive person.

    Not a damn bit but that does not stop the dishonest left from slinging their mud.

    I'm not surprised.

    That would be the same Carter that has shown himself to have strong antisemitism leanings time after time. He has zero credibility concerning race or ethnicity.
