    I don't think so. That is the most illogical and idiotic thing I have ever read on this board, even more ridiculous than the 9/11 truthers.

    Anyone who buys into the stereotype that most conservatives are racist bigots has absolutely no mental capacity for intelligent, reasonable, and rational thought. Obama's policies and programs clash with many conservative principles, and to say that the main reason conservatives disagree with him is because he is black is flat out ignorant, if not deceptive and dishonest.
    I say YES to the question. Most opposition to Obama is racially based, & yes...I truly believe that.

    Most Americans are not racists, & more voters voted for Obama then voted for McCain.
    The question is aimed at the opposition to Obama & yes, I feel that tghe core of it is indeed race based. Oh, the far right racists will find 10 million reasons they will CLAIM why they don't like Obama: His economic policies, his use of diplomcy, his HC reform ideas...etc

    These, IMO are just dodges & as Senator DeMint honestly said, the right wants to "Break" Obama & I believe it is mainly racists thinking.


    Is it possible to not be a racist & dislike Obama's policies? ...Of course!

    Do I think that is most often the case with anti Obama people? Not on your life. I think it is mainly racist.

    Hmmm. Well, I think it's most often the case that the people who say "most" opposition is "mainly racist" are simply trying to avoid having to defend him against criticism on substantive grounds.

    So much easier just to wave your arm and say "oh, they're just a bunch of racists," eh?

    No evidence exist to support this position. I would say this is as bad as the birthers movement.

    This comment pretty much says your original comment is unfounded.

    It's funny to watch white people play the race card based on nothing.

    How about this. Maybe they just don't like his policy's much like Bill Clinton, who faced as much opposition.

    And I feel people who have come to such a ridicules conclusion are just stupid, much like 9/11 conspiracy theorists and birthers.

    There is plenty of readily available evidence on which to support a belief of racism. To PROVE it??....Probably not. But evidence to support a strong belief? ..You know there is. Google it yourself.

    Can this argument work the other way around?

    Bush was not very popular and criticised amongst African Americans and other minorities, a good percentage of them voted against him.
    Was it just because he was white? o.O

    Provide it yourself. That's how it works.

    You being one of the most closed-minded people on this board, you probably have good grounding on that.

    You made the claim not I. You need to put up evidence or tell the truth that it is nothing more than your opinion backed up by nothing. I have seen no evidence at all to support your claim.

    Until you can put up some real evidence, you can yell to the mountains and it makes your unfounded claim no less absurd.

    Man, oh man are we still on this kick?? Lemme tell you! I don't give a sh!t if Obama were green with yellow polka dots. Most people that disagree with him base it on policy not race!! And I will ask once again. If Obama were a Conservative Republican going against a Liberal who is a lilly-white male, would you still support Obama??












    And I feel that people who close their minds completely, & label ideas they disagree with as "Ridiculous" are the stupid ones & arrogant & quite secure in their stupidity.
    Translation: If one disagrees with the official Liberal Democrat platform, one is stupid?? Gotcha!

    Here are just a few bits of racism aimed at Obama that are quite enough to prove that a "Belief" (that most opposition against Obma is rcially motivated) is quite warranted:

    Racist Attacks on Obama Growing More Heated | Hatewatch | Southern Poverty Law Center

    Inland GOP mailing depicts Obama's face on food stamp | Inland News | PE.com | Southern California News | News for Inland Southern California

    War on Racism: Threats Against Obama Growing as Inauguration Nears

    Racist Incidents Give Some Obama Campaigners Pause - washingtonpost.com


    Just a few quick links to show that my belief is well grounded in evidence. To label my belief as ridiculous is.........ridiculous!....& arrogant.




    Don't twist the argument to one where you expect me to PROVE my belief, which I don't claim is PROOF. It certainly clears the bar for a belief based on evidence, however.

    "Quite enough" for someone dead-set on believing that most opposition to Obama is racist, I'm sure.
