Stealth racism

I just finished reading an article over on Alternet entitled "Obama is Black but He’d Better Not Say So" by George Davis and I really think it's worth reading and thinking about.

Here's some information that I didn't know before:

A Harris Poll released recently found among Republicans (There are about 50 million registered Republicans in America):

* 67 % believe Obama is a socialist.
* 57 % believe Obama is a Muslim
* 45 % believe Obama was not born in the United States
* 38 % equate many of Obama’s actions to those of Hitler
* 24 % say Obama “may be the Antichrist.”

I do recommend that you read the whole article (it's quite short) to see how all that connects with racism.

  1. Sensible stuff from the Republican camp, as ever. You get a lot of socialist Muslims who are also the Antichrist.
