I did not ever dismiss critics of Obama as President or as a person as ONLY coming from racists. If that is your belief, then you misinterpret or are distorting my comment.
We can agree on the observation of history that our society has a sick side and racism exists in America. And, at times, the focus of that sickeness (racism) can be on rich black celebrities. This focus involves sensationalist media fanning those flames, sometimes raising the ire of a small faction of some racists towards very successful black people like MJ and Obama.
No matter what, there'll be those that want to sensationalize and elevate and expose their problems loudly . If there's a racial component or suspicion of a sexual aberration, all the more fuel to the fire, so to speak. It could be argued that there's a need by some to drag them down (by racists) and media to either feed their racism, or build their Nielsen ratings or sell newspapers.
None of this speak to guilt or innocence.
Michael Jackson is STILL dead!
