What Happened To Our Post-Racial President?

Throughout President Obama’s campaign he spoke very little about the color of his skin. Consequently the Left immediately deemed him our “post-racial president.”

This term led many Americans to believe that the social order would follow suit, but since Obama has been elected our country has become the very opposite of a post-racial society.

Earlier this week our post-racial president himself embraced race with the sole intent of influencing an election. Obama left out middle aged, white, male voters calling on “young people, African Americans, Latinos and women,” to vote for Democrats in November.

“Post-racial” my butt!

Since the election of Barack Obama the Left and their Amen chorus the mainstream media sits ready to label anyone who opposes the Obama administration or has conservative beliefs a racist in all aspects of American culture not just politics.    

If you love limited government, and oppose government run healthcare, well then you might be a racist. (Tea Party Movement)

If you are pro-life and not afraid to say so before a public audience, well then you sound like a Nazi. (Heisman Trophy-winning American football quarterback for the Denver Broncos)

If you refer to President Obama as an athlete, you might be a racist. (Newt Gingrich in his Southern Republican Leadership Conference speech)

Do you prefer English as our nations primary language? That’s racism. (watch new controversial video of gubernatorial candidate Tim James here)

Use Mohammed in a cartoon? Racist! (Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of South Park.)

If you are in support of cracking down on illegal immigration by enforcing new stricter laws that will save lives and help fight terrorism. That’s racism.  (70% of likely Arizona voters)

Did you suspect that Nidal Malik Hasan — the man behind the Fort Hood shooting that killed 13 and wounded 30 — was a terrorist because he was of Muslim descent? Racist again.

Columnist Shelby Steele predicted this infusion of racism in our society early on in the 2008 election. “When whites — especially today’s younger generation — proudly support Obama for his post-racialism, they unwittingly embrace race as their primary motivation. They think and act racially, not post-racially.”

I urge young Americans, women, Latinos and blacks and WHITE MEN to think again come November. The moment we really transcend into a post-racial nation is when we elect politicians because we use our brain not our eyes.
