(It's stupid) people just want a black president

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: BIG BANG said it all

I know why the numbers are raising on Obama. Because they are just looking at the fact that he's black. Period . that's it. There is no other reason. America's opinion is " It's time for a black in office." It has has nothing to do with what he wants to do for our country and what kind of man he is. Yes, America's morals and values have changed. You can thank the hippy era and rap music for that. People just don't care about the important things anymore.

Many people's attitude is whites are racist. Why is it only whites can be racist. More blacks are racist than whites are racist. That's a fact not an opinion.
