White House rejects racism claim

US President Barack Obama does not believe current criticism of his policies is based on the colour of his skin, the White House has said. It was responding to comments by former President Jimmy Carter that much of the vitriol against Mr Obama's health and spending plans was based on racism. Mr Carter said many thought an African-American should not be president. Congress has also witnessed an outburst against Mr Obama that led to the rebuke of Republican lawmaker Joe Wilson. Mr Wilson's son has denied any suggestion of racism in the outburst and some conservatives have accused the president's supporters of playing the race card.US President Barack Obama does not believe current criticism of his policies is based on the colour of his skin, the White House has said.

Mr Wilson's son has denied any suggestion of racism in the outburst and some conservatives have accused the president's supporters of playing the race card. It's deeper than that. Responding to a question specifically on the Congress outburst by Mr Wilson, he said Mr Obama was the head of state as well as the head of government and - like heads of state else - he should be "treated with respect". Mr Wilson was rebuked on Tuesday in a House vote, which said he had breached decorum. He had shouted You lie! while Mr Obama was delivering an address on healthcare to Congress last Wednesday. Mr Wilson's eldest son, Alan, denied racism was a factor in his father's outburst. There is not a racist bone in my dad's body, he said. Mr Wilson himself maintained that his personal apology to Mr Obama should have been enough to resolve the matter. Mr Obama "graciously accepted my apology and the issue is over", he said.
