You know when you "friend" people on Facebook and everything they post on their wall will appear on your wall? Well. Someone who is obviously against Obama and Obamacare, posted a picture on their wall that showed up on my wall that was so horrible and so racist of President Obama I was shocked. I thought about posting the picture but decided not to because it would be promoting someone's hateful agenda. It was so degrading I could not believe that anyone would actually post such a picture.
This went WAY beyond Democrats / Republicans / Conservatives / Liberals. It was hateful. Whether you like the man or not, he is the President. And if you're going to pull the race card when commenting on the President speaks volumes about who YOU are. I would imagine that anyone who could post something like that and/or hold such derogatory opinions of the first black President is probably someone who hates that we no longer live life like those lucky folks who lived during the 1860's when slaves were slaves and whites were whites and everyone knew their place. A person of conscious would never post a picture like that because a person of conscious has heart, compassion, intellect. Only a racist could post a picture like that.
President Obama has disappointed me too. But I realize that these men in Washington are politicians and they ALL HAVE AN AGENDA and it is not about YOU. With that said, I have NEVER seen such hatred for a President, ever. And I believe it is because he is not white. The congress has fought this President on EVERYTHING. The Tea Party and the conservative pundits have been very vocal about wanting him to fail. These folks would bite off their own nose to spite their face. They want him to fail so badly that they don't care if the entire country suffers because of it ... can you say SHUTDOWN?
And please do not send me angry comments about Obamacare. This is not about Obamacare. You don't have to like the President, that's ok. You may not be a Democrat, that's ok. You may disagree with Obamacare, that's ok. My message is that posting something like what I saw today IS WRONG and could ONLY be posted by a racist, and that to me is sadder than sad. That there are people in 2013 ... the 21st Century, who still believe that posting derogatory, racist and demeaning pictures of a black man who is also the leader of the free world, is OK. IT'S NOT.
