Talk about racism

Who are the first ones to talk about racism?  Clearly it is the people who feel they have been victimized by it - African-Americans bring up racism more than Caucasians. Well, to my mind there's racism and then there are those people who use it as a crutch or a reason for every ill in society. Take a look at this.
Holder said that he believed that Obama is subject to "a certain level of vehemence" that is partly racial.

"You know, people talking about taking their country back," Holder said. "There's a certain racial component to this for some people. I don't think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there's a racial animus."
As simple as that, the Attorney General, smears everyone, particularly white people, as being racially motivated in their disagreement with the president. His escape clause is to say that he said "for some". But it still is a blanket statement and you cannot effectively claim to be not be racist if you disagree with anything the president says or does. Isn't that convenient for Obama and Holder? What a great way to silence the critics!

If you disagree with Eric Holder or president Obama concerning what they say or do you will be called a racist.

To my way of thinking, regardless of your skin colour, if you don’t effectively do the job that you were elected to do, then you deserve criticism. If racism is the only word you can use when someone criticizes you, that's a weak, infantile defense. I for one knows that Obama is not doing the job he was elected to do. So I am a racist now? I would not call myself that, I would call myself a critic of the president.

Instead by Eric Holder's logic, I would be called a racist - because I am a white person criticizing an African-American president. Sarah Palin, the starting point for Eric Holder's racial logic, seems to be a straight shooter in what she says. For her it's not about race either but by weaving race into that conversation, Holder is subtly calling her a racist too. But are you going to tell me that president Obama is just as straight shooter as she is? That would be a big laugh.

Those are my opinions. Have a good day
