Pres. Carter: Racism plays role in opposition to Obama

Former President Jimmy Carter says racism motivated South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson's outburst during President Obama's speech to Congress last week. He went on to say it’s also a factor in some of the opposition the president has faced. "Those kind of things are not just casual outcomes of a sincere debate on whether we should have a national program on health care," the former president said at the Carter Center, "It's deeper than that."

Do you agree with the former president? We want to hear from you.
Leave us a comment and we’ll read some of them on air in the CNN Newsroom, 11am — 1pm ET.
