Radical racists

Posted By on Wed, Apr 30, 2008 at 10:45 AM

A lot of folks have been waiting for the time when so-called liberal white Democrats would turn on Barack Obama and it has happened. The AP has reported that white Democrats are concerned about his close association with a "radical." What? Is this not the state where the infamous PTL was headquartered? It's a good thing that folks don't judge Charlotte's ties to the Bakkers or you might think that folks here are religious zealots. What about Jesse Helms who was continuously re-elected until he was rolling around Raleigh in a diaper? Is North Carolina a state full of "radical racists?" The logic is ridiculous but the racism is real — still holding blacks to different standards, while never questioning your own.
