You are a Racist if you do not vote for Obama!

Yes all those who do not vote for Obama are being characterized as Racists. The media plays the race card in favor of Obama, but never mentions people who are voting for Obama strictly because of his race.
Here is part of a great article on this subject. So either you vote Obama..or your a racist.
Here is most of the article.
The news media have been shamefully stoking the idea that the only way Barack Obama could possibly lose is if American racists have their way. Indeed, the fact that Obama isn’t leading in polls by a wide margin “doesn’t make sense . . . unless it’s race,” says CNN’s Jack Cafferty.
Many journalists are so committed to the racism-explains-everything line that they are labeling any effective anti-Obama ad as an attempt by John McCain to “viciously exacerbate” America’s “race-fueled angst,” in the words of one magazine writer.
For example, a McCain ad noted that Franklin Raines, the Clinton era head of Fannie Mae who helped cause the Wall Street meltdown, advised Obama. Time’s Karen Tumulty gasped that because Raines is black, McCain is playing the race card.
Why, she wants to know, didn’t McCain attack Obama’s even stronger ties to the even more culpable former Fannie Mae chairman, Jim Johnson, who had to resign from Obama’s vice presidential search team because of his sketchy dealings with mortgage giant Countrywide Financial? “One reason might be that Johnson is white; Raines is black,” Tumulty suggests.
Or another reason might be that the McCain campaign was saving that attack for its next ad, which is what happened.
According to critics, McCain’s “celebrity” ads featuring Paris Hilton and Britney Spears were nothing but tawdry race-baiting because they subliminally played on white America’s fear of black men violating the delicate flowers of white American womanhood. You’d think a cognitive warning bell would have gone off the moment anyone started suggesting that Paris Hilton and Britney Spears are icons of chastity.
