Yolanda Davis asks, "Why do we hate each other?" The answer is in her letter. Calling anyone who disagrees with you and opposes President Barack Obama a "vindictive racist" is not spreading love.

There are many reasons to dislike Obama, none of which has to do with his color. Are you informed about his policies and their impact? Do you listen to the arguments of his opponents and attempt to understand their reasoning? Foreign policy? Energy?

Massive debt? Expanding government? Dictatorial powers? Benghazi? Or do you simply bask in the warm glow of supporting a black president?

Liberals love to feel good: "Look at me. Aren't I wonderful? I'm not a racist."

It's much easier to seize the moral high ground and condemn others than to find out what is going on. Obama is destroying the country, and those like Davis are helping him.

Wake up, America.
