Disagreeing with Obama doesn't make us racists

Recently, some writers replying to someone points out that this individual is old, not very rich and white. Follow that with opinions that imply old people sit around and worry about a whole list of things that ended with black people.

Of course this implied that because someone disagrees with President Barack Obama they are racist. I for one find this very insulting to anyone disagreeing with Obama. It is a standard practice for liberals.

We disagree with this unqualified president on many things, and they have nothing to do with race. Maybe someday the American people will wake up and realize that liberalism is the single biggest danger this country will ever face.

Being 79 year old, I will state very clearly that the youth of this great country will never know the true America as long as we allow liberals to keep shoving their nonsense down our throats.
