No rational person can conclude that things have not improved under President Obama’s leadership, and nothing gripes a racist more than the object of his hate to succeed.
To the irrational and mean spirited complainers, your anger, bitterness and unfiltered complaints about our president are clear and unequivocal expressions of racism and hate – nothing more.
Your unwavering demands to have it your way at the expense of others has fallen on deaf ears. Simply because you believe you are entitled to have it your way does not make it so. You are not smarter, more knowledgeable or better informed. You have done nothing to recommend yourselves to the rest of the world. The majority of this country feels differently than you, and you will not change our minds by your constant railing or your obstreperous politics.
We are not ignorant or ill informed. We are providers and not takers. We believe that this world can be a better place, and our willingness to work at change has demonstrated that our ideas have merit.
We believe in a world that takes care of its own, and in taking care of the world in which we all must coexist. We believe that by caring for the least of our brothers, we are protected from the tyranny of fear and rage of an oppressed people.
We believe that we must lead by example if we are to have a position of influence in this tempestuous world. We believe that even the hater is deserving of a place at the table whether in a foreign country or here at home. We invite you to join us.
Delia T. Crouch, Newnan
