How to you counter the charge of racism?
Frankly I really don’t see the challenge here in the answer as in my opinion it’s as simple as saying “Prove it.” Prove my actions or anyone’s actions are racist, don’t throw a bomb and run, stand and make your case, prove to me that being in disagreement with Obama and his policies are racist… PROVE IT!
Now Jimmuh Cah’der as you know has said that disagreement with Obama is racist, well let us dig a little into Mr. Carters past shall we? We shall…
Jimmy Carter’s racist campaign of 1970
Check out and read Stephen Hayward’s The Real Jimmy Carter if they want a taste of the out-and-out racism that Carter employed in order to defeat moderate former Gov. Carl Sanders for the Democratic nomination in 1970.
From the book…
Carter’s top campaign staffers were spotted distributing grainy photographs of Sanders arm-in-arm celebrating with two black men. Sanders was a part-owner of the Atlanta Hawks, and in the photograph he was celebrating a victory with two players who were pouring champagne over his head. Carter’s leaflet was intended to depress Sanders’s white vote.
“The Carter campaign also produced a leaflet noting that Sanders had paid tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.”
Carter criticized Sanders, a former governor, for preventing Alabama Gov. and notorious segregationist George Wallace from speaking on Georgia state property. “I don’t think it was right for Governor Sanders to try to please a group of ultra-liberals, particularly those in Washington, when it means stifling communication with another state,” said Carter.
“‘I have no trouble pitching for Wallace votes and black votes at the same time,’ Carter told a reporter. Carter also said to another reporter, ‘I can win this election without a single black vote.’”
Upon receiving the endorsement of former Democratic Gov. Lester Maddox, Carter responded by praising the life-long segregationist: “He has brought a standard of forthright expression and personal honesty to the governor’s office, and I hope to live up to his standard.” Maddox had not only refused to serve blacks in the restaurant he once owned, but he had also greeted civil rights protestors [sic] with a gun, and made sticks available to his white customers with which to intimidate them.
“The campaign paid for radio ads for a fringe black candidate, C.B. King, in an effort to siphon black votes away from Sanders.”
“Then there was the radio commercial in which Carter said he would never be the tool of any ‘block’ vote, slurring over the word ‘block’ so that it could be mistaken for ‘black.’
“Carter won the Democratic nomination and the governorship — unsurprisingly, with almost no black support.”
I recent days the peanut framer went on to say (I’m paraphrasing here) “most white people don’t like the idea of a black president.” he went on to single out southerns… well Jimmuh you don’t speech for me as a white man nor do you speech for me as a southern. Obama skin color as squat to do with his policies, it’s his attitude.
All I can figure out is Carter is afraid of losing the crown as worst president ever to Obama and by playing the race card on behalf of Obama, Carter can retain the title unchallenged as Obama would have a asterisk, but it’s just a theory.
