Jimmy Carter Says

I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man—that he’s African-American. I live in the south, and I’ve seen the south come a long way and I’ve seen the rest of the country that shared the south’s attitude toward minority groups at that time particularly African-Americans that racism in our nation still exists and I think it’s bubbled up to the surface because of a belief among many white people—not just in the south but among the country—that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It’s an abominable circumstance and it grieves me and concerns me very deeply.
