Go Back to Kenya!

Okay, so I'm visiting some web sites to see what's being said about the general election and I come across this link to a Sarah Palin rally in Johnstown, PA from October 11, 2008: http://open.salon.com/content.php?cid=28870 (Racism and Vitriol at Palin Rally...) -- you can also click on the title of this post to check out the video.

One White man was holding a Curious George stuffed animal (wearing an Obama sticker) and he said, "This is baby Hussein." That was a reference to Obama's middle name. The man's maniacal laughter reminded me of what you might have heard at a lynching. It was sick!

Other people were saying stuff like:

--He's [Obama] a baby killer!

--He's a terrorist!

--The only difference between Obama and Osama is the b-s!

--He was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia! (Obama was born in Hawaii, McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone)

--Where's Obama? He's in Africa!

--Go back to Kenya!

You get the picture. These folks spoke directly into the camera and were quite proud of themselves. No shame. The same as folks that used to go to lynchings!

Agreed! We still live in a very scary country. The polls are making some White people very afraid. I wonder how an Obama presidency will reverberate in other areas, such as the workplace. It's possible we could see an increase in race-based problems due to hostility about the outcome of the election. McCain and Palin have certainly stirred up race-based resentment.
