The Racist Attitude Toward the President Continues to Surface

The Mayor of Los Alamitos, California continues the growing trend of open racially motivated hostility toward the President. This article does not point out the Mayor's political party, but it could be either. The Mayor's feeble explanation for his action fell completely flat. If he did not know the meaning of the picture, why did he pass it on? The answer, of course, is that he knew very well what he was doing. The only mistake he made was not checking his addresses before he clicked send.

These incidents will continue throughout President Obama's time in the White House. I wonder how many more politicians will try to explain or "apologize" for their actions, knowing full well the public can see straight through them. The good thing about their ignorance is that we will become aware of their true feelings as we have of Los Alamitos' Mayor.

GMM: I think you will want to take a look at JPierce's Baps Today latest blog.
He calls a fundamentalist blogger out for his naivete in these matters.
The comment line there is good as well. John McWhorter of has some thoughts of equal value to Pierce; this time taking Atty Gen Holder to task for wanting a "conversion" instead of a conversation.
Very easy to get lost in the Race Swamp; but I think you and Pierce have done a notable job with these two synchronous blogs.

What a knotheaded thing to do! I don't care which political party he is affiliated with, he should have known it was in very poor taste & him being an elected official makes it much worse. I think any elected official's public & personal life should be above reproach because he has been given the public's trust. But then again, my standards would eliminate most politicians.

One last thing - I saw where he said basically he didn't mean any harm. Exactly what was he smoking?

This really made me mad and I was like, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" People trapped in the 1940s---KKK police officers yukin it up, cartoons with monkeys, Yes, what WAS he smoking?? He must be good friends with Clint Eastwood who wishes the good old days would return--RAWHIDE! THIS IS 2009 and we are NEVER going back.
