Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

People Thinking Obama Is Racist

leave a comment »

I was curious as to why some people think President Obama is racist so I went on Google to look up articles. I came across a blog made by a guy around the time when the news was covering Obama’s former pastor. In his blog I immediately recognized many of the topics that we have talked about in class. I immediately noticed that he wanted to make sure and defend himself in saying that he is not racist because his girlfriend is half black, like Obama, so he is not racist. He also criticizes Obama for making it important to discuss the unfair treatment of Hispanics, Asians and Blacks in his campaign. The guy says that with all the civil rights in this country, he does not believe racism is an issue any longer. That is exactly what the authors of our books have written against. Many people do believe that racism is not an issue any more but in reality it still is. The fact that the guy is wrote that blog just gives more evidence that it is.
