Starita Smith’s commentary “Don’t make Obama target of prejudice” (Aug. 15) refers to the Missouri State Fair clown incident as another form of hatred against the president and says the tea party haters are on the loose.

Smith writes for the Progressive Media Project, a source of liberal commentary. The liberals and President Obama have always been super-sensitive to any criticism, and if you don’t agree with Obama’s agenda, then you’re a racist and an Obama hater.

This line is getting old. I would suggest it’s not the color of the skin, but the thickness.
