'Tis a Puzzlement

Since the election and hearing the breakdowns of how people voted, I have a question. Can anyone out there in bloggerland explain the following. When 95% of black people voted for Obama, that was a good thing. However, if 95% of white people didn't vote for Obama and had voted for McCaibn, that would be racist.

Maybe I'm not too bright, but I don't understand.

If I was a black woman, I would have voted for Obama,because I was so proud that finally, a person of my race was a contender. As a Catholic, I felt the same about voting for Kennedy, a Catholic candidate. I accept others' faiths, but proudly support my own. This does not make me a bigot. I believe that most white people voting for McCain did so because they appreciated his service to America and his experience. A racist is a discriminator and a persecutor. Now, perhaps there were some racists voting Republican, but most of us are far above that immoral way of thinking, I hope.
(My husband voted for McCain strictly because McCain is ProLife and Obama is not.)
