Former President Jimmy Carter is keeping it real here. Unlike many others who would like to act as if the majority and intensity of the opposition of now President Obama is not racially motivated. It absolutely is!
This is why Joe Wilson was comfortable saying what he said. This is why he has raised over a million dollars since. This is why teachers, principals and parents, (especially in the South) kept their kids away from school for a ‘stay in school and be responsible and accountable’ speech from the president of the United States. This is why there has been such an uproar in the town hall meetings and folks have said things like, “I want my country back.” They just can’t wrap their brains around a black man being in charge.
Too bad as a nation we are not addressing this head on while we have yet another opportunity.
