Anti Obama Callers, or Posts, or Threads, could be white men with southern drawls, white men with New york Accents, or White men with no accent. They could be of White Race, Black Race, Asian Race, Yes Hispanic Race, Italian Race, etc, what's your point!

This is coming down to race baiting, and i hate these sort of threads. What do you have against White men with Southern Drawls.

I know people of all color and races who are supporters of Obma, and i know even more friends and acquaintainces of all colors and races, and religions, who want to see Obama gone, has not one thing to do with the color, religion, or race of the person, and everything to do, with how one thinks in life, and what your own ideals are. You either are a supporter of a person, or a non supporter, and color religion, and accents should be left out of it!

Why does liking or disliking Obama have to come down to polarizing issues of "so-called race", class, and geography in this country all time?

This nation is way overdue for that "little talk" about the facts of life - i.e. "so-called race" we've been ignoring for the last 148 years.

Well it's not like you guys come up with any thought provoking responses either. At least I've never heard any. At any rate, I think the OP was just pointing out that a majority of the callers he heard were white men with southern drawls. It doesn't mean he thinks ONLY white men with southern drawls hates Obama. That's how I read it anyway.

just about all the anti Obama callers where...surprise, surprise, white men with Southern Drawls...
say I'm a troll, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on political talk radio (that is heard in all 48 states, not just 1 town).
You know Obama got 90% plus of the black vote in 2008 yet I somehow guess you weren't too curious about that.

oh for heavens sake, are you really going to make anyone beleive the only anti-Obama people are those living in the south and did they all identify themselves as white?

you certainly missed the mesage on that one: the poster made no reference to anyone being planted, the comment was the screener picking and choosing.

Not only that, but the lamebrains from the Northeast and West Coast also think most or all Southern whites that vote Republican wish slavery was restored go figure. You can tell they've never been in the South, the ignorant people that they are. I've visited a town of 8,000 people before in northeast Alabama (Arab) and I never ran into any problems. If anything, they LIKED me especially my "yankee accent" . I think a lot of these liberals seriously need to get out more and if they live in the South, they need to get out of their enclaves full of northerners and the large cities there like Atlanta or Charlotte or Austin.
