Let’s get this out in the open. I, Jessie Bolen, did not support Obama in 2008 and I am not sure about him in 2012. However, I am sick an tired of hearing that people only voted for him because he was black. He was a great speaker spoke of change and people were sick of George Bush. If you are a seventeen year old ignorant d-bag who’s only opinion on the Obama administration is that he is black and a Muslim, SHUT UP! That is completely irrelevant to how he handles the economy and foreign policy. Who cares!
What I am trying to say is that the level of maturity that people think that you are is up to you. If I’m discussing politics with you, please have a better argument than bigoted racial stereotypes. For instance, if we are talking about Sarah Palin I’m going to say that she is unqualified to become president. It isn’t because she was a beauty queen or a woman. It is because she is too far to the right, she couldn’t handle being Governor of Alaska after the campaign in 2008 and since she turned her life into a circus on TLC and Lifetime. Those are just a few of the problems that I have with her.
I understand that there is a “Blue Scare” in some parts of America. Just because someone is a Democrat doesn’t make them immoral hippies and the devil. Likewise, just because someone is a Republican doesn’t mean that they are racist right wing nut cases or country club snobs.
Become informed, do your research, and keep your bigoted thoughts to yourself. This is 2012, not 1812.
