The great Political and Racial Divide of 2009
Original post made by Ron on Jul 24, 2009
Reading about the whole issue with the Professor being arrested in his own home, in which the police officer walked right in,(even though the police report says public property)for using his constitution free speech rights (ya right) and this has sparked the first of what I believe to be an avalanche of race based infighting and controversy.
It worries me and I voted for Obama. Clearly America is not ready for a black president (who is equally white mind you) and I had feared this like many had.
The race card is claimed on the right and racial profiling is claimed on the left.
Subtly in most cases, there is a conservative hate and resistance to having a liberal BLACK president, of the United States O America.
The Right Wing news pundits all but make mockery of Obama ancestry, citizenship and go as far as making mildly racial jokes.
Rush and Buchannon have stated publicly that the Constitution and America was founded by WHITE people and that there is no place for Sotamyer in the Court and no place for "undocumented" Obama in the WHITE house.
The racial jokes are all over the Internet and even come from public popular news pundits. Conservative web sites are all but calling for a coup or civil war.
What started as a historic advance forward has turned into throwing us back to a time of political and racial divide without question.
