Why was I called "racist" because I like Jackie Kennedy over Michelle Obama?

I answered a question on here the other day that asked "Isn't Michelle Obama the most beautiful and stylish president's wife in history?"

I answered, no because I think Jackie Kennedy is more beautiful and stylish.

Then the asker added additional details saying that anybody who thinks Jackie Kennedy is better, is racist.

Huh? Why?

Update:

"But you probably are"...NO!

I simply think that Jackie...

Is more beautiful and stylish than Michelle...

Update 2:

I don't think that Michelle isn't beautiful, I just think someone else is more beautiful than her.

    Because white people have been brainwashed into thinking that to criticize blacks, or to differ from their point of view is "racist". The term has lost it's meaning and has become no more than a tool of the politically correct to control speech and thought.

    Because people want to pull out the "race" card whenever they can. It is redick to me. If a black person said they liked Michelle over Jackie, then that would be okay... but if a white person picks a white person over a black then OMG its racists. I see this everyday. Its super annoying. No one cares about color these days, or at least a lot less people than you think.

    You are not racist but your question brought out the ignorance in some people. The nerves of some people calling Michelle Obama hideous. I'm black well half black and it bugs me when some blacks throw out the race card over a preference. They can say their dislikes but when a non black say how they dislike or don't agree with anything that has too do with blacks it makes them a racist.

    i agree with you.jackie o was simply stunning.she was classy,elegant,and her beauty was flawless.michelle obama,oh,please! i am sick of everyone talking about how wonderful they think she is.in my opinion,she isnt even pretty.i dont like her,i dont admire anything about her,and i dont care who calls me racist.its not her race i'm against.its her as a person.and its her husband.jackie o,on the other hand,i hold in high esteem.she was beautiful,and she had excellent fashion sense.her style and elegance were simply timeless.

    and as a person,i found her to have a lot of character.she seemed like a nice and genuine person.and her beauty was even more stunning because of her character as a person.

    Because the asker is a moron.

    Michelle Obama is hideous. Not saying Jackie Kennedy was a looker herself, but she was better looking and more stylish than Michelle Obama.

    I am black and I do not think that Michelle Obama is the stylish first lady. I think that because she is black they feel that you must choose her and her husband as the answer to all questions but they are not. You have your opinions and do not let anyone make you feel bad for that.

    Because some people like to throw the word racist around. People said that anybody who didn't vote for Obama is a racist. I say that whoever voted for him simply because he's black is a racist.

  • There's a certain group of people who believe racism only goes one way. Sorry, but racism is racism- white against black, black against white, Asian against white, etc., etc. etc.

    I agree with you, by the way. Mrs. Kennedy was attractive, stylish and classy.

    Whoever said that is a tad touchy. It isn't racist, but some people love to play the race card whenever possible.
