I think there are all sorts of "unfavorable commentary" that could be made about President Obama that would not be perceived as racist---just don't include a reference to a chimpanzee in it. Can it be that hard?
Oh, and by the way, leave out nooses, burning crosses, welfare queens and the N-word.
I don't think any intelligent "unfavorable commentary" is going to be taken as racist.
Frankly, I think the implied accusation that Obama can't be criticized without there being counter-charges of racism is itself an expression of racism.
