Maybe I’m missing something obvious here, but white Americans elected an African/American to be president, so why is anybody that now criticizes him, a “racist?”.
Around 97% of Blacks apparently voted for Obama and almost the same number still approve of him.
So surely it’s Blacks that are being racist and not non-black Americans?!
I and a great many others think that Obama is wrecking the US but it’s his policies that we have a problem with and not his color.
The Race Card Again
Obama just said that race has affected his political standing since he’s been in office.
According to a story posted on the New Yorker magazine’s website today, President Barack Obama says that racial tensions have softened his popularity among white voters within the last two years,
"There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president",
"Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president".
How Many Non-Blacks Voted To Reelect Obama?
I think that you can fairly safely assume that Obama won 95% of the Black vote in every state.
So he would have needed approximately 75% of the non-White, non-Black vote in every state, in order to get the votes he got.
The above numbers are obviously approximate, but they are close enough for the purpose of showing how many non-blacks were not affected by Obama’s color.
So Political Correctness Aside
How much do you believe color is causing Obama’s collapse in popularity?
