Call me dumb, but I have a couple of questions:
If Obama loses because of racism, how did he get elected? Blacks are only 12% of the population.
Next question - WHY did she have to "convince" her kids that racism is alive and well? Her kids are black and live in the south. If she had to "convince" them, apparently they never encountered it. If African Americans in the south don't experience racism, it can't be very prevalant. Certainly not as prevalant as Ms Lucas would like it to be so she can keep playing the race card.
Here's the truth - it is Ms Lucas and her ilk that are the racists that are keeping racism alive. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louise Lucas et al NEED racism. It's like their drug of choice. It's their EXCUSE, their crutch. So they work tirelessly to keep it alive.
Yes, Ms Lucas, racism IS alive and well - and it is because bigots like you KEEP it on life support.
