Video: On Obama, misperceptions, racism guide some rural Ohio voters

Al Jazeera English recently traveled to Ohio to ask voters to share thoughts on Sen. Barack Obama. What they found were wildly inaccurate and often racist beliefs about the Illinois Democrat:

“I’m afraid if he wins, the black will take over.”

“He’s not a Christian. This is a Christian nation!”

“He must support terrorists.”

“I’m concerned Obama and his wife could be anti-white.”

“I don’t like the fact that he thinks white people are trash because we’re not.”
