And From the Peanut Gallery

Jimmy Carter said,

"I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way and I've seen the rest of the country that shared the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time ... and I think it's bubbled up to the surface, because of a belief among many white people, not just in the South but around the country, that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country."

Well Jimmy, I too was born and raised in the great state of Georgia and while there are certainly examples of racism, the vast majority of Georgians are not racist. I have not visited your home town of Plains, so you may live in a bubble of exception.

I also believe that you are probably not the best arbiter of who is racist, what many white people believe, or for that matter who is qualified to be President - as your record and approval rating indicated.

Comments such as yours trade in hate and serve to divide our country. Since you are so quick to play the race card I would submit that you are the racist creating division where none exists.

Jimmy, the next time you have a thought - don't.

##That's My Opinion##
