Opposing it has nothing to do with racism unless your motives for opposing it is racist. Saying it is racist would make as much sense as saying opposing it is homophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-White (there are many poor Whites too), or anti-woman.

No, one can have many reasons to oppose a particular type of health insurance.

Race is always brought up in one-drop rule America.

It depends.

Opposing ObamaCare while white? Then yes, you are a racist.

But the question does raise an interesting issue, and perhaps the time has come for some of us to take a step back and do a bit of soul-searching.

Would we (or some of us), as Conservative Patriotic Americans, be so vehemently opposed to Obama and his agenda, if he were a green marxist?

Be honest now ...

Remember the time when it was mostly poor white people on the front cover of magazines and newspapers? Then came the 1960's, the media shifted it focus on poor black folk and then the code words started associating black folk with Welfare.

Obama Care is for whites too, but it is coded for blacks & hispanics.

True, back when being poor was to be pitied and in need of services, and not treated like villains. Appalachian folks were to be helped.

Of course there was a time when welfare was only for whites.

Yes because a black man created it so it's automatically racist to oppose it.
