Self-proclaimed Republicans, conservatives and other assorted members of the rightwing had a fit. Screaming and claiming that it was racist. Yet, I've never seen one explanation how. They just claim it, and supposedly that's what it is. How is Obama, a black man of a certain complexion and stature, wrong for stating that a young man, who looks like a young version of him, could be his son...how is that a racist statement? Explain how this was such a racist thing that RIPPED the entire fabric of good American racial relations. Clearly a question posed to conservatives.
