I am voting for McCain. And I am not a racist.

I was the first white member of my high school’s African-American club.

I went to South Africa after college to help that country’s democratic transition.

My girlfriend is black and comes from a family of black political activists. (She also backs McCain.)

I have been to McCain and Palin rallies in recent days and I have not heard one single nasty or negative comment.

Everyone I know who supports McCain is doing so for the best reasons.

We are not racists!

I am sick of being told by journalists that we are racist if we have any doubts about Obama.

I am sick of being told by journalists that we will release our racist venom in the privacy of the voting booth.

I am sick of being lectured to by people whose own racist assumptions about American voters are on plain display.

We are not racists!

We are Americans!
