No, I am not a racist.
Jack Cafferty has a quick note on CNN.com, the premise...? The only reason Barack Obama is not winning is because he is black. I cannot formulate into words the anger, disgust, and pain that I am currently feeling because of this article and the comments by readers that follow it. I am a first generation American of Latin descent who is not supporting either of the major candidates, but the one I oppose the most is Barack Obama...and the amount of melanin in his skin has nothing to do with it. Over the last year or so I have tried to articulate reason after reason for voting against Barack Obama, and yet empty-suits like Jack Cafferty think it all has to do with race. It can't be tax policy, or spending policies, or welfare, or abortion, or national security, or crime, or healthcare, or immigration reform, or energy, or states rights issues, or the Supreme Court, or corruption, or Social Security, or socialism, or globalism, or candidate preparation and experience. No, no, no...it must be because he is a black man. Or half-black man. By the way, you do understand the underlying assumption, right? If Democrats are voting for Obama and Republicans are voting for McCain...and Obama is not winning because of his race...ergo Republicans are RACIST. The worst part is that there are others out there who actually agree with him...Jack Cafferty you and your ilk are despicable.
