I don't think it racism is reserved for this country only, no race or country on this globe is free of racism, you will always have people in whatever race you are that just don't like or will openly make fun of other races. Just as every race has their homophobes, you could go to any country from super powers to 3rd world cultures and you will always find some that are homophobes or racist toward others, and it may even be in their own race. Not all African tribes like each other, the Zulus may not like the Massai, the Cherokee may not like the Apache, the Russians may not like the French, the Mexicans may not like the Cubans, the Japanese may not like the Koreans, the Pakistanis may not like the Indians.It has been that way for centuries
"Because if Mitt Romney wins," he replied, "we'll be going back to the crop fields. We'll be picking crops." Off-screen, his father could be heard laughing.">> Where does a 9 year old boy come up with this outrageous idea? Kids often repeat what they hear at home, the ignorance of this statement is not coming from the 9 year old but from his father, the same man who was laughing should have been correcting his son so he will not grow up to be a bigoted racist who will wrongly accuse all white people of racism and blame for his closed mind.

Anyone who knows how politics work and do not listen to blowhards like Rush Limbaugh, Jon Stewart and Bill Mahre could never vote for Obama after his first failed term. Obama and the democrats has two full years of total power, 2008-2010 they had control of all three Houses and a very rare super majority in the Senate with enough seats to block any GOP filibuster. Obama and the democrats could have passed or repealed any legislation without opposition and they blew it. They had a real chance to really change things, I think they thought they would have that power for more than two years. I wish they would have done even half of what Obama promised, if they did he would not be in the fight of his life right now.

There is no doubt that racism works both ways, the problem is that most will not admit it. We have all heard a black friend or co-worker say that they voted for Obama in 2008 or will vote for him now only because he is black. When I heard my black friends or co-workers saying that I asked them what they would think if I said I was voting for McCain or now Romney because he is white, I always get that martian look, which means they are thinking about it. But it doesn't matter, they will never see it as wrong if they do it, I do have a few black friends that say they will not vote for Obama again this time. The ones that voted for him 2008 said they did so that they could tell their children that one day they can grow up to be president...
