After decades of playing to racial fears of Americans during election season, conservatives have accused Obama of playing the race card. His crime? mentioning that he doesn’t look like the guys on the dollars bills. In other words, stating a fact.
How audacious. People are eager to elect a black man and that’s not fair to white people!
Pat Buchanan wrote recently about how great “black folks” have had it.
America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.
See Obama? Drop that African sounding name and get yourself an American one to go along with your freedom.
