Idiot: "Obama faced massive racism, and it made it that much harder to get elected."
Really? He faced MASSIVE racism?
Even with his 95% capture of the Black vote, he still needed as many white votes as he can get to win. Black votes alone won't put him in office, by sheer demographic population of the U.S, there aren't enough black votes to put him in office without white votes.
Obama got 43% of the white vote in 2008, does that sound like a MASSIVE wave of racist white people voting against him? Figure in the natural split of Dems/Repubs and it's not really out of whack with how the votes would have fallen anyway even if both candidates were white.
Now, turn it around and make it a bit uncomfortable for you race baiters who only see it from one side.
The fact that Obama got 95% of the black vote can be seen as racism from the black community if you want to be objective about it. There are enough videos of interviews where blacks were openly saying they are voting for him because he's black and no other reason, regardless of party affiliation.
That sounds like a decision based solely on race, don't it? Conversely, they didn't vote for Romney, a white guy, because he's not black. Sound familiar? Yep, sure sounds like racism, don't it? But you libs don't ever want to touch that, do you? Because blacks can't be racist, only whites can be racist.
So the black population can say whatever they want, including the ones on Jimmy Kimmel who were asked, "What would it take for Romney to get your vote?" The response? "Turn black." Imagine if it had been reversed. The national outrage would not end until we had a few riots in every urban center in America.
Race is an issue, I will never deny it, but to see it everywhere, and point out race in everything where it isn't an issue is something race pimps and race baiters have to do. Without making everything a race issue, their very purpose and existence goes away. They become irrelevant and they have no hustle. What would Al Sharpton do without creating racial strife where there is none in America? Go back to being an obscure and nationally irrelevant reverend? He doesn't even have a congregation or a church. Nope, that can't happen. Not to the professionals at Race Bait, Incorporated.
