I am getting sick of the race baiting.
Abraham Lincoln, a white Republican, took us to a Civil War to free the slaves in Southern states. To accomplish this, thousands of white men from the North fought successfully to end slavery.
Most of the freed blacks became Republicans and participated in the government until the Democrats in the South formed the Ku Klux Klan.
Fast forward to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and his Washington, D.C., speech where he exhorted all of us to look beyond color, to the content of one's character. I remember that speech and have always tried to live by that standard.
In that light, I am telling you, here and now, that I do not like President Barack Obama, and it has nothing to do with color. He is tied with Jimmy Carter for the dubious honor of "worst president."
If we are to survive as a nation, we must get past judging people by the color of their skin.
