Let me warn you: if you don't think a Mom blogger has any business spouting off her political views, then you need to leave now and return your head to the sand because I'm fixing to unload right here, right now.
I am so sick and tired of the race card being played every time I turn around.
You'd think by now that race card would be rather tattered having been pulled from the deck so much.
I used to have a lot of respect for Bill Cosby.
Not so anymore.
Sure, I wasn't so blind as to see how his very popular sitcom made white people out to be idiots. And it irritated the fool out of me.
But then he gained tons of respect from me when he laid out the facts for people of his own race on why they were holding themselves back, not the white man.
While his own race was talking smack about him, the white man applauded his efforts and gained a new found respect for someone who could see it for what was.
Then he has to go and back up former President Jimmy Carter's statements that the protestations of late over Obama's spending and healthcare idealization is centered on racism.
Can people actually be this stupid??!!
It doesn't matter that a vast majority of the American people hated Jimmy Carter for what he did to this country, because a black man (only half-black, mind you) is doing it and we still hate it, then - as a white - it must be because we are racist.
What exactly were we white folk when people were protesting Jimmy Carter and his stupid, country-crippling policies?
Does any of these race-card playing liberal socialist ever stop to think that the reason most Americans dislike Obama is because he's so flippin' arrogant to come on fast and strong in the spending department? That he is insistent on shoving his policies down our throat?
That's exactly why I despise Obama, and the exact same reasons that I hated Carter's sissy-style politics.
Yet now I should feel bad because I am white and therefore my disgust is mostly based on my hatred of the black race?
Get over yourself!
I will not be made to feel bad because I was born a white girl. I am proud to be Caucasian. That is my heritage, that is who I am.
Stop thinking that because a white person disagrees with a black President it's centered in racism.
Remember, plenty of us "racist" white folk didn't like George Bush (Daddy and Baby), Bill Clinton, or Jimmy Carter.
We weren't racist then, why are we now?
