It’s because he’s another race. I’m sorta scared of the other race because we have so much conflict with them.
In the same clip, Shelby Sugg tells us:
Not even in my mind, I don’t. I don’t like the Hussein thing. I’ve had ENOUGH of Hussein.
I find it amusing that in a state where the African American population makes up 3.2 percent, Wanda worries about “so much conflict with them.” I’m guessing that most African Americans who live in WV go WELL out of their way to avoid ANY kind of conflict with the likes of Wanda Gibson. Hell, I’m white and would try to avoid her with all my soul.
And Shelby, the name Hussein bothers you? Are you equally offended by people named Joe or Joseph? Afterall, those Joes share a name with Josef Stalin.
It’s sad. They live in an economically depressed state and they seem to be ruled by fear of people who are not like them. So the 2008 GOP strategy will probably to hit on the main themes of “God, gays, and guns,” but with “scary black people” added to their list of meaningless wedge issues. Oh, and anyone who has ever known a Muslim seems to be suspect in their minds.
Barack, please don’t campaign in WV, after you are nominated.
