I don't get it. Why isn't calling Obama "black" itself racist? Doesn't it harken back to the segregation days, where if any one of your ancestors, no mater how many generations ago, was black, you too were black. The racist idea was a single drop of black blood would poison the whole person and all their descendants. We need to ditch all this racism. King was right, we should judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. But the sad truth is, if it wasn't for his skin color, Obama wouldn't be president today.

Some people cannot accept the idea that Obama was elected because of his merits, not his skin color

that is because he has no merits

Although Al Sharpton is defending Joe Biden and his "they'll put ya'll back in chains" comments, Fox News Contributor Santita Jackson, Jesse Jackson's daughter, isn't buying it. Last night on Hannity, Jackson called for Biden to apologize and take back the remarks she found to be "profoundly insulting."

Jackson's comments came just hours after former Governor of Virginia Douglas Wilder, said on Fox News' Cavuto that he was offended by Biden's comments. Wilder was the first African-American governor since reconstruction.
