No racism here, Mr. Pitts

August 11, 2011

I have had all I can stomach of Leonard Pitts' ranting and raving about racism ("For Obama, there's no reason to make nice," Aug. 7).

I am offended, as are many of my friends, at being labeled "racist" every time I or they disagree with President Obama's socialistic, Marxist policies.

It has absolutely nothing to do with his color, and Mr. Pitts and the Democrats know it. But they continue to go down the same old tired road of disingenuously labeling dissension as racism.

Mr. Pitts claims that "this is not politics as usual," referring to Mr. Obama being black. Well, I couldn't disagree more. It is and always will be about politics and strong moral beliefs.

Was George Bush excoriated practically every day of his presidency by the liberal, partisan media and others because he was white? Of course not.
