"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Martin Luther King, Jr.
Jimmy Carter brought out the “race card”. That was the last straw for me. So here’s what I want to say:
I am very happy that this country has come to a point where we could elect a president of a different ethnicity than usual. (I don’t use the word “race”. That word is divisive and I avoid it totally.) But, it is totally wrong to imply that somebody is a “racist” if they don’t like his policies
Personally, I think that people are treating Obama the same way they treat all presidents. If they agree with him, they like him. If they don’t agree with him, they don’t like him.
Obama is being treated the same way people always treat presidents they don’t like. This is just what Dr. Martin Luther King dreamed of. His dream has come true, in my humble opinion.
To bring up the “race” card to explain why some people do not like Obama’s policies is totally against everything Dr. King stood for, also in my humble opinion.
I do not support Obama’s policies because I don’t like Obama’s policies. I don’t care beans what ethnicity he is. It is irrelevant to me.
We are all one blood, in my opinion, and are all brothers and sisters created by God. Putting all the different ethnicities into different boxes has been bad for this country and for the world.
