Just Because You Say It.....

Even OJ can't believe it.... In fact, the AP is having problems with all this "You just hate him cuz' he's black" bullshit from the Left-tards.

Everybody's racist, it seems.

Republican Rep. Joe Wilson? Racist, because he shouted "You lie!" at the first black president. Health care protesters, affirmative action supporters? Racist. And Barack Obama? He's the "Racist in Chief," wrote a leader of the recent conservative protest in Washington.

But if everybody's racist, is anyone?

The word is being sprayed in all directions, creating a hall of mirrors that is draining the scarlet R of its meaning and its power, turning it into more of a spitball than a stigma.

"It gets to the point where we don't have a word that we use to call people racist who actually are,"said John McWhorter, who studies race and language at the conservative Manhattan Institute

"The more abstract and the more abusive we get in the way we use the words, then the harder it is to talk about what we originally meant by those terms," he said.

"I think (Wilson's outburst) is based on racism," former President Jimmy Carter said at a town hall meeting. "There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."

That's an easy charge to make against the rare individual carrying an "Obamacare" sign depicting the president as an African witch doctor with a bone through his nose. But it's almost impossible to prove — or refute — assertions that bias, and not raw politics, fuels opposition to Obama.

"You have to be very careful about going down that road. You've cried wolf," said Sean Wilentz, a Princeton University professor who studies U.S. political and social history.

Words only have the power that you give them, and I refuse to let anyone have the power to control me by calling me names that I know not to be true...

President Obama is not unqualified because he is black. H is unqualified because he is incompetent and wholly unprepared and incapable of being a leader that will lead America into the future.

Color ain't got shit to do with it....
