I didn't vote for Obama, so wait - I'm the racist?!............
Just logged in to the internet and saw this headline plastered on MSN. Black USDA official resigns after saying she only 'did enough' for white farmer
I'm just confused. I heard recently that the NAACP accused the "Tea Party" of being a racist organization.... Well first of all it's a movement not an organization, and second of all, remind me what the "Tea Partiers" have done to deserve that statement from an organization inherently racist per it's name - The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. So wait.... does that mean that I can't recieve assistance to advance my life because I don't happen to fall into the category of "colored" people because I don't have enough "color" pigmentation in my skin? Hmmmm sounds racist.
So yeah, that combined with this.... just makes me wonder - has the world gone mad since electing the first black man to the office of the presidency? I mean are the true colors starting to shine and show for what it is? That the real racism is the bitter feelings of blacks toward whites and not the other way around? I grew up under the golden rule philosophy - and I try to live by it - Treat others how you want to be treated regardless of race, religion, sex, or any other characteristic which differentiates us from one another.
