Who Is The Racist, Jimmy?

Former President Jimmy Carter came out of hiding this week to charge those who oppose Obama with "racism." Said the peanut farmer who made good,

"I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he's African American. 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, particularly African Americans"

"And that racism inclination still exists. And I think it's bubbled up to the surface because of the 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. It's an abominable circumstance, and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply."

So, how did our newly anointed scholar on who is and isn't racist refer to Barack Obama last August?

"This Black Boy," Jimmy?

Well, he is from Georgia.
