Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Racism or Politics?

This morning I was watching Good Morning America and there was a segment on the Republicans Conference in Washington D.C. and the way they feel about Barack Obama. The remarks that they made toward our president are just remarkable disgusting. Former vice president Dick Cheney publicly announced that Barack Obama would be a one term president. Not only were Cheney and his daughter reported rejoicing the fact that they are conservatives, but also many of the current leaders holding positions in our senate. A potential senator from Florida stated that “we are witnessing the single greatest political push back in history.” All of these comments and the huge uproar has me wondering if all of this is because Barack Obama is black or do they really disagree with the democratic party and all it stands for. I mean we have had democratic presidents in the past and some were extremely successful. Also, I don’t remember there being such a disparity when those other democrats were placed in office.

This is the link to Good Morning America’s website, not directly to the video, but the video is titled Republicans Rising: GOP in D.C.
