If you think there aren't people that hate Obama because he is black you are living in a dream world. I don't think the overall majority are racist but there are some. And there are some racists that are for blacks and against whites as well.
Personally in today's time, I think it is more acceptable for blacks to be against whites than it is for whites to be against blacks. That's not a good thing, only what I have seen.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

What I think Thomas is saying that I agree with is the hyper-sensitivity about racism has not been beneficial as much as it has been harmful.
Too many people believe that if they can show they are in some victim role they should get something out of it, that others somehow owe them or that such excuses - even if accurate - are worth anything.
There are other topics Republicans play the hyper sensitive game - and BOTH parties do it about women. I think doing so is not helpful, and it distracts from REAL instances of racism and bigotries.
In the Michael Dunn trial, the media and prosecutor are calling him a racist because of letters he wrote. Yet in none of those did he claim that the white race is superior or black race inferior.
So... then you MUST agree calling him a "racist" is wrong, that the media and prosecutor are lying - correct?
Same with George Zimmerman. He never said blacks are inferior. So all that a LIE LIE LIE too right? From now on, neither of you should EVER use the words racism and racist UNLESS you can show the person specifically declared another race is inferior.
