I understand how some people dislike the president because of his policies, but to say he is a socialist shows that you don’t know what socialism is, and that you’ve been buying into the acidic conservative rhetoric.

Also, you have to admit that he wouldn’t be getting these kind of hate-filled comments if he was white. I asked some people I know why they dislike President Obama, and after a long list of outright lies or exaggerations — he’s a Muslim, a terrorist sympathizer, etc. — one of them said, “.. and you just can’t trust a black man.”

Racism is alive and well. Don’t pretend it’s not.
