People on the Left are clearly beside themselves

It's OK to vote for Obama because he's black

"...I admit it: I'm voting for Barack Obama because he's black."

Why is it that racists attitudes among blacks and those who vote for Barack Obama based on his race, are left unchecked or not questioned by the mainstream media. But if a white person where to say the same thing, a different spin would be put on it by the MSM.

First to the MSM on racism among blacks.

WASHINGTON - Landslide margins among black voters powered Barack Obama to his win Saturday in South Carolina's Democratic presidential primary, allowing him to overcome the telling edge Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Edwards had among whites.

Not one ounce of negative spin on the fact that 90% of blacks voted for Obama. No questions of racism.

But today you have an article poll that is titled: Racial misgivings of whites an Obama issue

Granted this is within the Democrat Party and it shows that the left are eating their own or they are trying to "guilt" them into coming back into the Obama camp.

The pollster states:

"There are a lot fewer bigots than there were 50 years ago, but that doesn't mean there's only a few bigots," said Stanford political scientist Paul Sniderman who helped analyze the exhaustive survey.

The pollsters set out to determine why Obama is locked in a close race with McCain even as the political landscape seems to favor Democrats. President Bush's unpopularity, the Iraq war and a national sense of economic hard times cut against GOP candidates, as does that fact that Democratic voters outnumber Republicans.

The findings suggest that Obama's problem is close to home—among his fellow Democrats, particularly non-Hispanic white voters. Just seven in 10 people who call themselves Democrats support Obama, compared to the 85 percent of self-identified Republicans who back McCain.

The survey also focused on the racial attitudes of independent voters because they are likely to decide the election.

Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, but the survey found they weren't voting against Obama because of his race. Most Republicans wouldn't vote for any Democrat for president—white, black or brown.

Not all whites are prejudiced. Indeed, more whites say good things about blacks than say bad things, the poll shows. And many whites who see blacks in a negative light are still willing or even eager to vote for Obama.

On the other side of the racial question, the Illinois Democrat is drawing almost unanimous support from blacks, the poll shows, though that probably wouldn't be enough to counter the negative effect of some whites' views.

Race is not the biggest factor driving Democrats and independents away from Obama. Doubts about his competency loom even larger, the poll indicates. More than a quarter of all Democrats expressed doubt that Obama can bring about the change they want, and they are likely to vote against him because of that.

What you can take from this is Republicans wouldn't vote for a Democrat whether he was white, black or brown. Race doesn't play into a Republican's mindset. But among blacks and some whites within the Democrat party, races does play a factor.

So the title should be "Racial misgivings of blacks a McCain issue."

Welcome to the Dem's dirty little secret: the majority of the racism and sexism that exists is in their own regressive party. The Democrat Party has always been the natural home of racism since before the Civil War, and they are still pissed for having the Civil Rights Act rammed down their throats by Republicans.

To their (dis)credit they and their Media and Academia organs have been able to rebrand both parties 180 degrees out of phase. All this while still practicing an even more effective form of racism - "The Great Society" - which had Blacks willingly race back to the misogyny of the Dem plantation even as it sapped their souls and ruined their families. Even as Republicans keep pleading to Blacks to come back home and save themselves - less government, welfare reform, school choice, etc. - 90% refuse. That's dependency; and it's worse than the master's whip.
