    I say it is racist because the majority of Americans do not vote that way - take a look at Arnold Schwarzenegger getting elected as governor of California twice despite the way the liberals and Dems ranked on the way he talked with an accent - ya, Dems and liberals yakking about how he couldn't say California right - the ones who claim to be more tolerant of others than anyone - LOL - they are the worst offenders - and now with Reid's comments being acceptable within their community - shame on them.

    Yes, I should have been more precise in my wording.

    I meant that it's not a typical stereotype. Nobody is going to point out someone and say "wow! there's a white guy that's actually skinny and speaks well - he'd make a great presidential candidate!"

    To be fair, I doubt people are actually saying lighter skin tone and not using urban vernacular are qualifications for president, just that their opposites are disqualifications based on the electability of someone who displays the opposite characteristics.

    Correct - people vote for the convictions of a person - sad case of late though is Obama - a lot of people voted for him because of his campaign promises - he broke most of his promises to his base and to the moderates who voted him in - that's why he's out in 2012.
