Skip to comments.Yahoo News: Americans are "Secretly Racist" Against the President

There is dumb and there is dumb. I consider racism to be a disgusting form of mental cowardice, where you paint an entire race or nationality as one way or another. Facts do not sway racists and they simply label people with a large brush stroke.
Thus, the irony is incredibly deep with Yahoo's frontpage story today, in which it declares Americans "secretly racist" based on their... search engine entries. Specifically, Yahoo contests that Americans are particularly racist toward President Obama.
The fact that Mr. Obama was elected in 2008 does not even truly enter into the discussion; nope, we are racists all, apparently including those who voted for him. Yahoo does try to explain away some of their ridiculous findings, but their headline gets straight to what they are talking about: "Are Americans secretly racist? Yes:"
...Doing everything they possibly can for the administration, Yahoo even goes as far as saying that the 41% of the vote Keith Judd received in the West Virginia primary against Obama was entirely from racism. Nowhere in the article is it even mentioned that he is a democrat.

yukhoo “news” is Obummer propaganda/
Looks like the new talking points are out. Criticism of Obama is reaching excessive levels and too much of it is coming from the left.
The race card is all they have. They think if they scream loud enough, it might work.
I’m against his white commie mommie and her parents. It’s their faults. Zer0 is just a tool.
UNMITIGATED BULLSHIT. He is unpopular because he is INCOMPETENT. Nothing more.
And a dull one at that.
His incompetence is because Americans are “secretly racist.”/sarc.
I judge the man on the content of his character, not the color of his skin.
I’m racist against Socialist.
I am racist against liberals. Hey everything is a race these days, so why not?
Just calling a spade a spade.
Response: OK. Now what?
Apparently not racist enough as to put a white hating, Black liberation theology believer in the WH
Admitt it, everyone. White America is racist!
Here is a list of Other Blacks I am secretly racist:
1) Walter Williams
2) Alan Keyes
3) Herman Cain
4) Clarence Thomas
5) Dr Thomas Sowell
6) Jesse Lee Peterson
7) Larry Elder
8) Michael Williams
9) LTC WEst
10) Lynn Swann
Before Obama was elected I didn’t have a racist bone in my body....and I still don’t.....but my attitude toward some blacks has changed
God is not a respecter of color and neither I am I....
I can tell you now I often find myself just a little sick of black Americans thinking because we have a black president they think they can get away with anything....because of their skin color....
If that makes me a racist... So be it....I don’t care anymore...
Was not a racist til obammy came along
Call it what you might
Denial of reality at it’s best.
He not only knows how to swim, but he body surfs in the ocean. Wears saddle shoes with shorts at the golf course. I saw pictures of him skiing Aspen. Even his dog is a 'white' dog. Can't get a whole lot whiter than that.
He's as white as a styrofoam cup of white rice next to a glass of milk and a mayonnaise sandwich on Wonder bread with the crusts cut off sitting on a paper plate outside in a snowstorm.
Truth is, I'd vote against Obama just to get rid of Attorney General Eric Holder -- never mind the teetering pile of other garbage that Obama has inflicted upon the USA. That alone is enough reason for me. Racist, schmacist.
Yep, I’m now a racist, too. I didn’t used to be, but since obama soiled the White House, I’ve become one, thanks to him.
This is screaming pretzel twisted reasoning. Squeeze some juice out of that thing before it gets away!
The man is incompetent, the color of his back side is ilrevelant.
So, if you hate 0bama you’re a racist? Well, count me in - and I don’t have such a high opinion of his hosebag momma, either. Does that make me racist against whites too, or can you be racist against whites?
I consider calling a group of people “racist” when you know nothing about them, at least one quantum worse than simply being a racist. The fact is that we all have the perfect right to be racists. And many people have ample justification for their views. Plenty more than libs have for their views.
Yahoo is RACIST with that statement. They are implying that only a dumb black man can bring this nation's economy to where it is today.
ANY idiot can do that... this one just happens to be black. It's not the race... it's the party stupid.
Alan Keyes on Obama Feb 2009
If it is a secret, how do they know?
You got me. I hate white people so much I even hate half-white people. But that’s just me.
Let’s play along and assume that, yes, all Americans are secretly racist.
After election by secret racists, who declined to vet his qualifications for office, Mr. Obama has not performed well as President. He has demonstrated poor executive and leadership abilities; he has based his policies on debunked far-Left ideology that most Americans abhor; he understands neither economics nor business, with devastating effect; he has mocked the recovery by diverting resources to gross corruption with political cronies; he has leaked national security secrets for political gain; he has hidden massive unemployement behind manipulated statistics; he has undermined the Constitution to justify political objectives; he lacks candor and transparency; he has no clue as to how to work with Congress; and, he is disengaged from the real work of being President and from the real problems facing most of the nation.
Now, imagine an America without racists, secret or overt, or imagine Obama as the whitest man who ever lived. Does that change Obama’s performance as President? Or does it just change the subject?
Are he and his AG “secretly racist” against most Americans?
1. (in Swift's Gulliver's Travels ) one of a race of brutes, having the form and all the vices of humans, who are subject to the Houyhnhnms.
2. ( lowercase ) an uncultivated or boorish person; lout; philistine; yokel.
3. ( lowercase ) a coarse or brutish person.
As I understand it, we have a sacred secret ballot and can vote/not vote for someone based on any reason or no reason at all. Or did that change recently?
Barry’s not a Socialist.
Let’s be clear he is a Filthy F’ing COMMUNIST.
Yahoo is the worst news source in the world. It is seriously terrible. The editorial board is all left wing wackjobs, and every headline is crafted to give as much praise or support to the left as possible.
Barry the Bastard is a Red!
I can agree 100% with that. I have always been racist against the REDS; Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, the Obama’s, the Fonda’s, Putin, you could probably lump Hitler and Mussolini in there to. They were all socialist scum of one flavor or another, no difference to me.
Glad you added the /sarc. I was about to puke all over my keyboard.
I’m okay with “racism.” It seems to be okay with Holder and friends.
Of course “I don’t think that word (racism) means what you think it means.”
