It's really distressing how racism is becoming "acceptable" again. I saw the following bumper sticker on a pickup truck this morning:

"Don't blame me. I voted for the old white guy."

Sure, it's descriptive. But why bring race into it unless one is a racist? Unless part of what the person doesn't like about Obama is the fact that he's not white?


  1. There is an incredible amount of racism in this country and it seems to be a large part of the vitriol directed at Obama. I occasionally read the comments on news articles and am shocked at the nasty and hate filled racist comments about not only Barack Obama, but Michelle Obama as well. I guess people feel free to say what they really think when they can do it anonymously.

  2. Yes, it's very distressing, isn't it, Stacy?
