The statement in my post title is a textbook example of sophistry (you can add the smug and disdainful look on your own). What a way to dismiss summarily even the possibility that some of the criticism directed at Obama could be race based. This is nothing more than an argument tactic, especially when the point is conceded (and often it is) that there is in fact a possibility that race informs some of the negative opinions of Obama and his policies.
I've disagreed with some of the policy decisions of Obama, and I have posted about them on this blog. Does that make me a racist too?
There are plenty of things that Obama supports for which conservatives should disagree. Yet, there has been an effort by some powerful voices on the right to foment racial resentment, animosities and fears within the context of Obama's policy positions, and they have been doing this knowing that those things will resonate with some members of their audience. I agree with calling those folks out for doing wrong.
Demonizing the whole for the actions of a few is always wrong, and reasonable voices have not been demonizing the whole. If you pay attention to the specific claims of where race seems to be entering the discussion negatively (and not go all dismissive), then you should be able to see at least some of what folks are talking about.
And remember, no one can make you something that you aren't.
