Rodgers suggested that just as the O.J. Simpson verdict “was a racial vote,” African-Americans support Obama because of “racial brotherhood”

Summary: On his KSFO radio show, Lee Rodgers claimed O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder because of a “racial vote” by the jury and said of polls that show “98 percent of black voters voting for” Sen. Barack Obama: “[A]re we to assume they all agree with him on all his principles? Or could there be a hint of racial brotherhood in that vote? Come on, we know the answer to that.” Rodgers also declared, “If any white person, for whatever reason — because they think he consorts with terrorists or communists, or believes in all the things that black racist preacher said for 20 years votes against him for that reason — no, no, no, no. If you’re a white person voting against Obama, you are a racist.”
