Over the past few days I heard Jimmy Carter and Bill Cosby state that the opposition to Obama's policies are driven by racism. Although we've heard this over and over again from the left media, ACORN shills, Rangel, Jackson, and the usual suspects, Carter and Cosby are probably the first real prominent figures to play the Ace of Race.
Now I'm not so naive to think that there aren't some in this country who can't stomach the fact that there's a black man in the White House. But to paint everyone who wants answers about this man and opposes his socialist ideas and ideals with the "racist" brush is doing untold damage to blacks and other minorities who may actually suffer REAL racism.
By bantering the "R" word around at the drop of a hat, they are desensitizing the Nation against it. Those who realize the game the left is playing will shrug off the racism accusations and may even get angry at the frequency and situations it's applied to.
After seeing this for months and months on end, and probably for, at least, the next 3 years, decent, honest people will begin to see ALL accusations of racism as empty words and dismiss the accusers and charges as frivolous.
And THIS is where minorities will truly suffer.
If the left had any sense of decency, they would stop the rhetoric and concentrate on issues, lest they irreversibly damage the very people they profess to embrace.
But given the history of the Democratic Party, they will not. And by not doing so, they will continue to enslave minorities, keep them in poverty and on welfare (et al) and under their control. They do this to try and ensure that they take and maintain power.
Just as the first Civil War wasn't about black slavery, but about State's Rights, the NEXT Civil War will also focus on State's Rights, and I fear that the American Black population will again be front and center in the issues. Except that this time, the crackers will be from white mansions in Washington DC.
