Why Can't American Media Be This Honest????

I was sent this video of Aljazeera reporting on hate and racism in American politics (thanks Ben ...I guess). It is amazing that we all know that this exists and that people think this way, yet mainstream media will not report about it and tip toe around this elephant in the room. Lets all be adults. There are alot of ignorant Americans. Hey, John Murtha said it about his own constituents.

Living in Western Pennsylvania and frequently visiting West Virginia I have heard on numerous occasions Obama be accused of being a muslim terrorist. I have further heard people flat out say that they will not vote for a black man to be president and that other people are only voting for Obama because he is black. I know, makes a lot of sense. So you either vote for or against skin color when it comes to the president of the most powerful nation in the world?? How does Racism not collapse in on itself under the weight of its own irrational nonsensical lack of logic? Watch the video below, then seriously consider building a bomb shelter, leaving the country, or contributing to the creation of an Obama like Pope Mobile
