So If I don't like Obama's Policies then I am a Racist?

July 12, 2009 8:50pm CST
Why is that when I say I can not stand the policies of president Obama, that it has to be because of his race? Why can't I say something about the presidents socialistic and communist totality policies with out being called a racist?

It's because you're not black. If you want to object to his policies, either get a black friend to do it for you, or get cosmetic surgery to change your skin colour first. No, don't take that seriously. I'm just joking. They're probably playing the racism card because they can't refute anything you say with intelligent points of their own, so they try to attack your character. Either that, or they're the type of oversensitive twits that think everyone is racist.

That's kinda what I thought, but it is effective in shutting a person up.

Well, if they don't know you're not black, tell them you're black and call them racist for assuming everyone who opposes Obama's policies is racist. It'll be fun! :D

You should ask them to explain to you 3 policies that will benefit them... If they struggle with 1 policy, that should end the argument... LoL... ^_^

That is an excellent suggestion. All i hear though how he is making the rich pay their fair share. They don't beleive though that the top 4% of taxpayers pay 70% of all taxes collected. And then I ask them if a poor man ever gave them a job.

How can someone call you racist if they don't know your race and its not polite to judge others, as everyone has a right to his/hers own thoughts about a subject matter.I think people should be respectful of others thoughts as they would want people to respect there thoughts.Have a great day.

Of course you're not racist because you don't agree with a particular politicians policies (and that's coming from someone who disagrees with your statement immensely). Personally, I can't stand it when people accuse someone of being a racist because they don't appreciate their point of view on a topic. It's not you that's being bigoted.

Thank you. I can have a discussion with someone who disagrees with my point of view, but lately everywhere I turn if I say something about the President spending way too much and creating more taxes, then I am told I only feel that way about him because he is a black man. I wouldn't care what color he is, he is the worst president we have had sense Jimmy Carter, and may even surpass J.C.
