Why is it only Racist if someone white says it?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: You are so right! Obama is Obama

Submitted by Wingnut (United States), Oct 25, 2008 at 22:51

I have 2 comments to make: First of all, I know for a fact that Barack Obama or Iraq Osama as my son calls him,is lying. Because on one of his ads he talks about how he had a tough life growing up poor. NOT TRUE. Because I know someone that her mother went to school with Barack Obama,and she said it was a very ,oh what word did she say...Arrogant,snobby ,school of people with money.

Also... I would like to know why it is only Racist if someone White says something against someone black, but it is fine for someone black to say anything they want about whites,and nothing is said. Unfortunately, we have not come much further than our ancestors in regards to race. We like to think we have but when it comes down to it,we haven't. Just like the comment that a commentator said about Colin Powell only voting for Barack because he is Black. Sad to say but he is probably right.

You ask 9 out of 10 blacks who they are voting for and they will say Obama. But if you ask them why,they have no clue,but that he is African American. I have to say that we don't have much of a choice here this election,but I would much rather have someone that has fought for our country all of his life and knows politics,not someone with as little of experience as Barack Obama. Who ever heard of him until this election? They say who is Sarah Palin? No one has ever heard of her,but we haven't heard of him either. I will say to everyone... And it is this: Read your Bible,it says that when they start talking peace and security ( which is what Obama wants to do with these people that hate us) then the END will be upon us. Scary times we live in today.....
