Gov. David A. Paterson said on Friday that the chorus of people who believe he should not run for election next year want to keep him out of the race because he is black.

?We?re not in the post-racial period,? said Mr. Paterson, according to an article posted on The Daily News Web site, which cited an interview the governor provided to a radio program hosted by Errol Louis, a Daily News columnist.

?My feeling is it?s being orchestrated, it?s a game, and people who pay attention know that,? he said. ?We have a media that doesn?t report the news. We have a media that wants to make the news.?

Mr. Paterson ? whose approval ratings and support even among fellow Democrats have dipped this year ? also mentioned Deval L. Patrick, the Massachusetts governor and the country?s only other current black governor, and suggested that criticisms leveled against him are based on race.

?The reality is the next victim on the list, and you can see it coming, is President Obama, who did nothing more than trying to reform a health care system,? Mr. Paterson said.

He must have been able to fool everyone into thinking that he was white in the first election.

I just want to point out what hypocrites people that use the race card, the way this guy has, are. When was the last time someone whined about getting a position because of race?

Why aren't black people getting upset when they get jobs just because they're black? Thats just as racist as being DENIED a job or a position because of your race, the only difference is its racism working in your favor.

If you want equality you can't demand it only when it suits you. Not gonna work.

LOL 12% of the population and they want all the jobs qualified or not..what a joke.

How about the other minorities...Qualified hispanic citizens for instance are losing out on jobs because black people get the attention of the media whenever they play the race card and there's way more hispanics in this country than black people.

I guess the squeaky wheel does get the most grease. The backlash with all this race card shiat will rise eventually at their own peril when Real racism needs to be address.

Cry wolf one too many times and guess what ?

Hey Gov..YOU SUCK AS GOV THAT'S WHY .

I was about to post this up too. What a ****ing joke this guy is.......

"The next victim on the list -- and you see it coming -- is President Barack Obama, who did nothing more than try to reform a health-care system . . . only because he's trying to make change," Paterson said.
