There's a new potential excuse out there for Obama backers fearing a racial tinge to the election results next Tuesday.

The Hartford Courant offers a different rationale, however (As if there is anything rational about calling someone who doesn't vote for your candidate, a racist).
Yes, the new terminology offered by the Hartford Courant is ‘unconscious racism.' Meaning if you pull the lever for McCain on Election Day, you are not only a racist, but you're too stupid to realize it.

No word yet on whether the 84% of African Americans who are voting for Obama should be considered ‘conscious racists.'

I disagree. I think you can be very, very stupid and still not a racist.

I wouldn't vote for Obama even if he was an albino. I am not voting for him because he is a socialist. And we all know socialists come in all colors.

Basing your vote on the "socialist" term your party uses because they thought it was something their base would glom on to (pretty smart of 'em) isn't very bright. Thus proving my stupid doesn't mean racist philosophy. Geez, at least come up with a policy stance...any one of them...to base your reasoning on!

Dubya turned out to be a socialist, too. What can you do?

AAs almost always vote Democrat in huge percentages. Besides, why would you want to call them racist for voting for a partially white candidate?
