There's No Denying Obama's Race Plays a Role in Protests

Quote:
Washington - In the pre-dawn hours of last Nov. 5, while much of the nation celebrated Barack Obama's election as the nation's first black president, three white men in Springfield, Mass., doused the partially completed Macedonia Church of God in Christ with gasoline and burned it to the ground.

After their arrest, the men told police they'd torched the black church because they were angry about Obama's election and feared minorities would be given more rights.

A nice well reasoned piece explaining what should be apparent to any thinking person.

Far too many of the protests are coming from the far right extremists, and they are all racists and bigots. They got "fired up" during the presidential campaign. John McCain and Sarah Palin encouraged it. After the election rightwing talk radio and Fox Noise have kept up a tirade of lies and distortions about the Obama administration. The menagerie has to be fed, and they're doing by the shovelsful. Look at "You Lie" Joe Wilson, from SC, one of the most racist and bigoted states in our nation. :evil:

Sometimes is the logical answer...and not an option in the poll.

It is clear that racism played a major role in Obama's crushing defeat suffered during his historic presidential bid.
