Obama may lose because of his issues, not his race.

Has anyone in the media even suggested that Obama may lose because he is simply out of touch with the average voter, and that that has nothing to do with his race?

Is there any main stream newspaper story on that?

Or am I going to be called racist for voting for John McCain no matter what?

  • You’ve hit the nail squarely upon the head.  I don’t believe that Barack Obama will lose because he is a black American but rather because Obama is a proud liberal who has embraced issues and taken positions that are ultimately far beyond what Ma, Ma, Joe, & Jill Sixpack believe in.

    Of course there are pockets of racism in America that will reject Barack Obama because of the color of his skin but that, thankfully, is an ever shirnking minority.  Obama may win in November, quite frankly you’d think that the electoral “perfect storm” would have Barack far ahead of McCain at this point.  

    However, if Obama loses in November it won’t be due to his status as an African American (or the silly rumors of being a Muslim, etc. etc.) but simply because of his inexperience and his being out of touch with the heartland.

    for not voting for Obama, you wouldn’t vote for the Lord Jesus Christ if he were a Democrat.  And there are a solid number (50 million or so) of Americans that would never vote for a Democrat, are not voting for Barak and I would not consider racist.  But this will be a close race and you can not deny that an indeterminant amount of people are racists and will vote against Obama becuase he’s black.  

    But as a primary supporter of Obama’s, my ultimate reason for supporting him (a unifying message) had nothing to do with racism, so I will be hard pressed to blame it on race if he lost.  But we’ll see how bad things get during the last weeks of the campaign.

    The NAACP and Black Abortions from The Wall Street Journal

    Yesterday was not business as usual at the 99th annual conference for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. For one thing, the first African-American to head the presidential ticket of a major party was on hand. Yet there was another interesting appearance that went mostly unmentioned. This was a protest by African-American pro-lifers – many NAACP members – who can’t understand why America’s most venerated civil rights organization turns a blind eye to what they say is the abortion industry’s practice of targeting poor minority neighborhoods.

    These folks include the Rev. Clenard Childress, a New Jersey pastor who runs a Web site called blackgenocide.org – the same language the Rev. Jesse Jackson used before he threw in his lot with the Democratic Party. These folks include Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union, and Levon Yuille of the National Black Pro-Life Caucus. And these folks include Dr. Alveda King, a niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King who says she knows what abortion does to a woman – because she had two of them before her change of heart.

    A fact sheet from the Guttmacher Institute puts it this way: “Black women are 4.8 times as likely as non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion.” The Centers for Disease Control further report what this means: While about one out of every five white pregnancies ends in abortion, it’s nearly one out of every two for African-Americans.

    question.  

    Two aspects in PLAY here, leftwing candidate and Black.

    All the focus seems to be on will there be possible racism against Obama. No one mentions the 90% rate of Black voters who ACTUALLY voted so far for Obama.

    Only 10% of Black voters have conservative values? or….hmmmmm racism?

    I think if racism AGAINST Obama was even close to a factor, he wouldn’t even be the nominee.

    He won fair and square, and he should LOSE the general election fair and square.

    Because he’s an empty suit liberal, not because he’s Black.
