Read my statement - I said Obama is a "race baiter." Have you watched Obama's 2007 speech @ Hampton Univ.? It is a dishonest, race baiting speech.
Race baiting: Inflammatory speech that incites one race of people against another, to communicate and use racially charged language to anger.
Watch his speech. There is no way Obama should be president of the United States.
Here is a link to an evaluation of that speech by an African American - Thomas Sowell. Read his assessment of Obama's speech.

Merriam Webster defines race baiting as the making of verbal attacks against members of a racial group. A common definition of a racist is a person who hates or dislikes those who belong to a different race. The way I see it calling someone a race baiter is calling someone a racist. I have not observed in his four years as President that Mr. Obama is a racist. Further, as I said, I give about as much weight to his 2007 speech as I do Mr. Romney's 2012 47 percent talk to some high rolling donors.
Inciting a particular race of people to anger and action against another race for your own personal/political gain does not mean that you dislike one of the races or that you're racist, it just makes you egotistical and a terrible person. We've seen Obama get involved in very local stories because of race (Trevon Martin, Cambridge Police), there's no denying that.
Also, our language is a living language and is therefore always evolving. Can you tell what Merriam Webster defines "noms" as?
Noms: National Organization of Marijuana Smokers? Am I close?
