There are some things I don’t mind people saying about me or anybody else I know. Sometimes you just gotta have thick skin cause people are gonna say what they wanna say and so be it. I am rubber, you are glue, bounce off me and stick on you.
What does bother me, however, is Jimmy Carter getting on national television and proclaiming that the reason President Obama is facing so much opposition on this healthcare bill is because he is black.
Huh? Say what, Jimmy? Are you serious?
Mr. Peanut also went on to say that there is still a lot of prejudice in the South. He states that the conservative types in this country “think that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this country. It is an abominable circumstance ...” that grieves him and concerns him very deeply.
It has nothing to do with race, as much as the Democratic Party refuses to admit. It has all to do with the ideology that is being spouted and touted.
It has all to do with having a president who can certainly talk the talk, but hasn’t shown yet that he can walk the walk.
I couldn’t care less if President Obama were purple, pink, green or blue. I could care less if he came from Idaho, Tuckahoe or Barnesville.
For the former President of the United States to get on television and say that is what is abominable.
Bill Clinton, another former president whom I have strict reservations about, did allow that Carter was entitled to his opinion, more or less, but he further stated that he thinks it isn’t about race.
He understands that people are not happy with the way things are going down in this country, and race has nothing to do with it. Folks would be still be unhappy and angry if Obama were white.
Something wise uttered by a Democrat.
What about us whitebreads who hammer down on people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Fife ... ooops ... I mean Barney Frank, and Chris Dodd?
Does that make us prejudiced? Yes. Of course it does.
I am always prejudiced toward people who are ruining this country. I admit it freely. You mess with our country, I will dish-out on you. Obama, as he said, was black before he became President. And he’s right.
He owns it. He knows it isn’t the race card, he knows that people are sick to death of the money being spent, sick to death of the threat of the government taking over every aspect of our lives, and sick to death of being hammered over the head with the race card.
Admittedly, there are still some boobs in this country who cannot see beyond the color of someone’s skin, be they black, Asian, Hispanic, whatever.
And it goes both ways.
Whites don’t hold all the cards when it comes to prejudice, it’s just easier to lay the blame on them. Why? ’Cause they’re white. Because there was a really horrible past that Americans have to keep moving on and away from.
I’m prejudiced toward Jimmy Carter.
Wanna know why?
Because he insults our intelligence.
He insults the way we were brought up.
He insults African-Americans because he wants them to feel like they are still being put down and put upon, and in his doggedness to try to make himself look like a liberal savior, he just keeps doing what a lot of people in this country keep doing, trying to re-kindle the flames of animosity that most Americans are trying hard to put out.
If anyone is carrying a race card, it’s that danged cotton-pickin’ peanut farmer from Plains, Georgia.
All I know is, it must stink to be him.
