I am sure you have all heard that before. I am actually starting to think it's true.
Still, some racists must vote dumbocratic, but given the direction of the dumbocratic party, I am sure that they (the racists) are leaving it in droves.
But hey, don't take my word for it; read what a republican insider says:
"Wilkerson, who is white, didn't mince words on MSNBC'sThe Ed Show Friday night. "To say that Colin Powell would endorse President Obama because of his skin color is like saying Mother Teresa worked for profit," he said. And although he gave Sununu a bit of a pass, blaming his statement on an "unfortunate" choice of words, Wilkerson had much harsher words for the GOP as a whole.
"Let me just be candid," he said. "My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander in chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that's despicable." [Source]
It's not only the republican party, it seems like all of the folks in the majority population are starting to be a little....well, less tolerant as well.
"Four years after electing our first black president, the United States is somehow more racist than it was before, according to an online poll by the Associated Press: A majority of Americans (51 percent) now hold "explicit anti-black attitudes" — up from 49 percent in 2008 — and 56 percent showed prejudice on an implicit racism test. Yes, Republicans tend to score higher on the explicit metric (just ask Colin Powell's former chief of staff, Lawrence Wilkerson, who said the party was "full of racists" on MSNBC on Friday night), but Americans' unspoken racist tendencies are apparently nonpartisan — and may ultimately cost Obama about two percent of the popular vote. As one political scientist put it, "President Obama's election clearly didn't change those who appear to be sort of hard-wired folks with racial resentment." Mind electricians of America: you have a lot of work to do. " [Source]
OK Negroes, so white folks (especially the ones who vote republican) don't like you. Please do not let that affect how you live your lives. What is really important is the following: Your family, your environment, and your personal happiness and self-fulfillment. White folks might not like you, but they will not harm you, and they will do a very good job of pretending to like you when you are in their company.
If you are on the East Coast, be careful out there, Sandy is on her way.
