Obama, Jimmy Carter, Colorism, Racism and Color Arousal

As reported by MSNBC, We’ve seen this play before. Democrats accuses Republicans of racism. Republicans fire back. Democrats retreat. So it went Wednesday, when former President Jimmy Carter, 84, fingered racism for fueling the hysterical tone of many of President Obama’s critics. More HERE

AAPP: Candidly, I have a few concerns regarding President Barack Obama and his enabling of many white Americans to be color aroused bigots.

Let's take a look back at the past few days...

Why is it that Barack Obama does not see the 'You lie' outburst as color aroused bigotry? yet, a former 'good ol boy' Democrat like former President Jimmy Carter can tell it like it is.

Why did Barack Obama distance himself from former president Jimmy Carter, rather than just taking care of the bigger economic problems of our nation? Speaking of bigger problems, Why d
id President Barack Obama really need to call Kanye West out of his name, and call him a Jackass? For that matter, why does President Barack Obama call out black folks but refuse to call out these white wing bigots when they subject all Americans too their collective color aroused bigotry?

OK Yes, Barack Obama is President and he is human with human opinions, but he is also suppose to be a role model for kids.

Mr. President, thanks for calling Kanye West a jackass. As if we already didn't know... I expect more of our President. I would expect this type of Sister Soldier moment from Bill Clinton or for that matter George W. Bush, not Barack Obama.

Kayne West and Taylor Swift: Barack Obama calls Kanye West as a 'jackass'

Candidly the one the Ptresident should have really called a Jack Ass is the one who called him a Liar in front of millions of Americans -Joe Wilson.

Now he is a real jackass!

Now Barack Obama through his spokesman, are publicly disagreeing with former President Jimmy Carters assessment regarding racism, colorism, or color arousal. You see President Carter recently said, "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man," Carter told NBC News.

AAPP says: Jimmy Carter was right when he said, "racism inclination still exists. And I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of the belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply."


Now it looks like Barack obama and Michael Steele, who blogger riPPA calls the Signifying Monkey are the apologist for white color arousal, bigotry or what some call racism. Let's call them "the racism enablers"

Get this, as reported by Reuters, Carter's remark also drew the condemnation of Michael Steele, the first African-American to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.

"President Carter is flat out wrong. This isn't about race. It is about policy," he said in a statement. "This is a pathetic distraction by Democrats to shift attention away from the president's wildly unpopular government-run healthcare plan that the American people simply oppose."

I guess Barack Obama and other national leaders will continue to play this myth that racism is not playing out 'big time' in America since Barack Obama was elected. But we don't have to listen to Barack Obama or his spokesman, lets see how its' playing out in America.

Read what one progressive black blogger has to say about all of this. Also listen to some of America's real black voices rather than the voices of
bozos like Newt Gingrich or Michael Steele.
