First of all he is a CHRISTIAN not Muslim, and the church he belongs is not a RACIST Church. Maybe if you researched his background you could get your facts straight. Check out Senator Obama's website or read his book then you will find the answers you are looking for it's not that hard.

My research tells me that the pastor of Obama's church sounds like a racist. I still voted for him, because of the two, Hillary or Obama, I find Obama to be the least objectionable. At least Obama strikes me as an honest person whatever his religion.

looking down on each group as they come along" is part of the great myth of america. The issue with hispanics is that america is anxious to make them the new white group. They (white hispanics) have enjoyed the quick track up in front of blacks the way germans, italians etc before them. Germans are still the largest "minority" if a group of "white people" with the same ancestry can be called a minority. Blacks didn't immigrate here and have earned their way to the top of society dozens of times only for those benefits to go to a newly minted "white" group. Another issue that bothers blacks is the part time minority status of latinos. When things are good, then they are white as bread and if they don't get their way on an issue then here comes all the international flags on their cars in protest. This issue is most common with jews as well. The last is this stupidity that makes other non-white groups like the middle east white. The problem is in the newsroom or classroom you have these imaginary scenarios for creating an ancient white civilizations and with no monuments in north-western europe, the definition of europe simply expanded to include these non-white groups. In practical terms "traditional" whites don't see the people crossing the rio grande as white nor do they consider the leader of libya, osama or saddam white. Arafat, castro and chavez are all white by these academic definitions. I am not white, because my ancestors are not from spain or iran but england and holland. My children are not white because their mother is french. Obama is not white because his mother is of irish descent. If we changed it from "traditional" white groups to the academic white groups, then without changing a single physical feature, me and obama would become white. This nonsense keeps MOST hispanics from living the latino myth. I know too many who look black and treated accordingly by society. As for the middle east, I never hear them being called "sand-crackers"
