Had a good spin class today. The class was full and Jim is quit the character.

Playing cards..........

So I had a feeling that this was going to happen. That is that if you did not vote for Obama you were a racist and that if you do not agree with his stimulus package then you were definitely a racist. (Maybe he should check this out and change political parties)Have we not moved beyond that by now? (according with this guy we haven't) Have we now lost our rights to disagree with our President now that we have an African American in office? I for one am proud that we have an African American as president. I don't think he is the right person for the job nor did I vote for him...but I do respect the office of the president and those that hold that position weather or not I agree with their political views and opinions or not.

As far as the open dialogue about racism goes, I am all for it. We should be open about it, but what confuses me is why the teaching of such things in some of our school systems has been eliminated or completely deleted form some text books.Is not the best way to improve ourselves as an individual and as a country to study the past and learn form our mistakes? Or should we just over time forget them and at some point in time repeat all of the atrocities that have been committed in the past?

If we are unable to agree to disagree as a free country then we are all in trouble.
