Carter errs in blaming opposition on racism
Of course there are some people who still bear hatred for people of a different color. But we have come a long way from those prejudiced feelings of the past.
Incidentally, whatever happened to David Duke who invoked prejudice into all of his political campaigns? Heís long gone and would have a tough time getting a campaign going these days.
Most voters today are more interested in what their public officials can do for our state and nation than in what racial or ethnic group they belong to. It seems that most racial tones in a campaign come from politicians who are trying to claim racism by their opposition to stir up racism in favor of themselves.
Louisianians have a President who is black, a governor who is Indian, and congressmen who are Vietnamese and Lebanese. We have heard very little opposition to them because of their race or ethnic backgrounds.
Even the President disagreed with Carterís assessment of the situation. He knows that the majority of the people in the country wanted him as President even though he is not the color of the vast majority.
