You think people down south like Obama? They are already calling him elitist(code word for Uppity). if you from the south you know that Uppity is a term used for Black people(negro) who doesn't know their place, those that uses their brain to move up the food chain.
Here's what a republican congressman said about Obama:For those that don't know the Southern definition of "uppity" when it's connected to the African-American Community by let me break it down to you.
1. A black man is "uppity" if he has an education.
2. A black man with a job.
3. A black man that is actually part of his family, an active present father.ask anybody from the south what uppity means, they'd tell you: "you mean Uppity Negro?"."Just from what little I've seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they're a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they're uppity," Westmoreland said.
Asked to clarify that he used the word "uppity," Westmoreland said, "Uppity, yeah."
Now do you guys see why white people were up in arms when obama told them they hide behind their guns and religions?? although true, it would have been okay for McCain or even hilary to say that. but for a black man to tell them that, it's an embarrassement for them.
sorry for my words but this one's here the truth: "There is nothing a white man with a penny hates more than a nigger with a nickle." and the south has a lot more poor white people than the north.
So next time you hear somebody call a man who grew up struggling by a single mother, an elite....Think of the word UPPITY.
*now you know what Clinton's campaign meant when they call Obama an Elitist. Bill Clinton is from arkansas, James carville who's from the south was/is an advisor to both hilary clinton and bill(1992).
