It Is Truly Clear That An Awful Lot Of White Americans Need To Take A Nice Long And Hard Look At Themselves In The Mirror!

"Barack Obama is not even worthy to shine the shoes of John McCain" - Debra Johns, speaker on the Stop Obama tour

For all the white folks I see on television talking about loving America, preserving the Christian values of America, and celebrating the freedoms of America, I'm not feeling the love, the Christianity, or the freedom lately. What I am seeing, hearing, and feeling is the racism, intolerance, and complete encroachment on the freedoms and views of fellow Americans.

The ever-growing, bald-faced, 0ver-the-top, racist, anti-Christian, unpatriotic, and anti-Democratic hysteria of some white Americans is becoming truly frightening and quickly reaching a point of no return. It needs to stop now! And this is not the responsibility of folks of color despite the fact that we are the ones having to deal with the open racism and intolerance expressed by all these great lovers of America. No, stopping this ugliness is the responsibility of other white folks. They need to call each other out on this escalating hatred.

This is not Democracy. And this is certainly not freedom. I am completely stunned at these white folks engaging in some of the most personal vitriolic attacks on not Barack Obama the Democratic candidate, but Barack Obama, the African American man, using the excuse that they are fighting for America. That was the argument of the Ku Klux Klan! And if you make that comparison to these same folks, they will have hurt feelings, even anger.

I mean some white folks have complete lost their minds ranging from good old fashioned racist rednecks to highly educated mainstream white Americans. From some backwoods country bumpkin in Ohio actually using the word "Negra" to describe black folks, to the right wing radio talk show wing nut that thought Obama had bothered to have special "O flags" made up when it was actually the state flag of Ohio, to the so-called journalist at the National Review, who without any evidence what so ever, decided to write that Barack Obama was lucky not to be aborted! Lord, help them! They know not what they do!

I have come to the conclusion that these folks that claim to love America so much that they can engage in the worst kinds of public behavior, nasty racist language, and ugly Americanism, don't really love America, they clearly don't even love people.

The election this year has certainly brought the haters out of the closet and opened up the eyes of the world with how backwards and racist this country is.

I can't help but think that some of their children and teens notice how silly their parents are behaving, and will make a conscious decision to be different.

You are so right. By the way, I have a friend who lives in the 6th district, which Michele Bachman represents. My friend is organizing against her. Bachman is an embarrassment to Minnesota, the land of Humphrey, Mondale, Wellstone, Amy Klobachar and Keith Ellison.

True, but they don't know that. And can't nobody tell 'em either.

We knew it was going to get rough and ugly...and they haven't disappointed us. But it is also the potential for some very dangerous responses from out of that ugliness.

I live in Ohio, and the Negra remark didn't even phase me. South of my home town is like Mississippi during the Segregation Era. And the flap over the flag, that was my laugh for the week. It only proves that there is a portion of the population that is gone insane in the membrane.

But I also have lived long enough to realize that this is also their fear releasing itself. You know we've waited to take over this nation. Not since the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements has there been such a seemingly unified black front moving the national political view. That is their worst nightmare unleashed and it is really happening.

I have read so many posts today that carry the same voice of concern over this openly racist rant of White Americans.

All I can say at this point is, God Save The Republic and keep us save from those who would do us harm.

There are some really sick people out there. The acts are outrageous. Just today, in Tampa, FL my college daughter and her roommate, walking down the street to their restaurant jobs, were called niggers by white males driving by. No reason. No provocation, just ignorance! Is there any hope? I keep telling myself yes just to keep my sanity and to prevent violence.

Sadly I am not surprised at the overall ignorance we are seeing since I have always known many whites feel this way.

I think what suprises me though is seeing seemingly educated white folks buying the lies but refusing to acknowledge that their fear is really racism.

At this point I do beleive there are enough folks that want change that he will get elected.
