The Official Community for Tennessee's Democrats
Even though most republicans and some democrats can't stand the fact there is an African American in the White House, most of them have that shred of common decency that prevents them from putting the 'n' word on the Obama signs in Tullahoma. Most, but not all. I don't know what course the democratic party will take, but I do know the republicans, like they did with Akin in Missouri will remain silent. Unless of course racism could be legislated like the G.I.'s fully funded jobs bill, in which case their silence would be replaced by a no vote. Their attitude toward their fellow human beings over the last four years is on par with the Nazi's of the 1930's. It seems like some humans have to feel superior to someone in order to feel human. But I'm not going to feel sorry for them. I'm going to vote!
