I live in a State that is the home of Harold Ford, a black congressman and outstanding American. When he ran for the US Senate against Bob Corker, the RNC ran adds with white girls dressed scantily beckoning Ford to call them. Being from the south, I know something about racism. Let me tell you, the ad that ran played on a sterotype in the south that drives white men crazy... interracial relationships. In Corker's defense, he asked the RNC to stop running the ad, but they declined. Corker won the election. YouTube - Racist RNC AD As for Obama, do I think ppl @ lpsg are racists? NO! Do I think people won't vote for Obama because he is black? Yes. How do I know so? Because my own in-laws have even said so. This is a secret in the south that will remain until the end of time. However, I believe most people under 40 years old don't see color, so perhaps racism will see its demise one day. The point is, while many @ lpsg don't care for Obama, I don't think they are racist.
