This year has been an incredibly racist year from people being afraid to vote for Barack Obama because they believe he’s a secret Muslim (so? Any American-born person should be allowed to run for president) to people who say he’s too black or not black enough. Now this old guy claims that Obama’s an Oreo and it’s unfair for him to reap the rewards of the Civil Rights battles of the previous generations.
I think this is outrageous. It’s bad enough that children in lower income areas accuse their classmates who are doing well of “acting white”, but now to hear this guy saying the same thing is just beyond words. We need to be proud of the fact that Obama might be the first mulatto president and not criticize him for acting white. After all, would anyone vote for a ghetto president? I think not….
