No, I was claiming that people have a hatred of Obama. I've heard anger in their voices when they talk about him. Tec claimed that he just disliked him as a president because he thought he was a pretty nice guy (or something like that). I can't "hear" anger on the internet, so I have to assume that he is being honest.
So why do you think that hate automatically means racist?
Your claim was many people "hated" him even before he took office.
There wasn't much to "hate" about him before he took office, so I would assume race would have to be a factor for people who "hated" him before he took office.
Again that was BEFORE you defined hatred as anywhere between 5-10 on the dislike scale. To which I replied, yes using that broad definition I also knew people that "hated" him.
If we can include those with mid level dislike into the "hate" category then race is absolutely a non-issue. I just do not have the clairvoyant ability to understand your definition before you clarified it.
