The race card
It is not anything new. Almost every day in Sound Off someone writes about what an absolutely unqualified and poor president Obama has been.
It seems half of the black community has to attack and play the race card and call everybody that disagrees with them a racist. It is all they know to do or say — the very same response that Obama makes when he pitches a childish temper tantrum because he doesn't always get his way. Wake up and think for yourself, not what the liberal Democrats tell you to think.
I personally could not care less if Obama were pink, purple, red or green, if he were more concerned for the whole of America rather than buying votes with food stamps, welfare, free cell phones, rent subsidies and on and on. Being neither Democrat nor Republican, I judge a person with facts and actions, not by the color of their skin, and any self- thinking person knew Obama was bad news from day one.
Face facts: If the white half of Obama were showing rather than the black half, then the majority of the black community would have long ago called for his impeachment. The facts are, you are not better off than you were five years ago. As Dr. Ben Carson has said, the black community is becoming slaves to Democratic liberals.
I am not a racist and never have been, however, I'm losing all respect for the majority of blacks for two reasons: first, the deliberate playing of the race card about everything; and second, the deplorable use of African-American to describe yourselves. I have never and will never put any country before America in name or otherwise. I fought for it and saw many fine Americans, both black and white and other ethnic origins, die for it. But what I did not see was Africans fighting and dying for America.
Respect cannot be dictated by a law or presidential decree or demanded. It must be earned. And calling someone racist for voicing their opinion will not gain you any respect, but it will certainly lose a lot of it and show your ignorance. If Obama were white or red, he would still be a poor excuse for a president because he has not earned any respect.
