In response to the Sept. 1 letter Color of your skin still matters in this country: How right the writer is. Remember President Obamas State of the Union address when a legislator shouted out You lie!? I am 59 years old and have never seen any president so disrespected.
How about the tea partys we want our country back? Thats blatant racism.
Remember Donald Trump leading the Republican primary? He forced Obama to show his birth certificate again. Trump had no intention of running for president. He doesnt want his business dealings to be scrutinized.
No one can say where Mitt Romney stands on major issues. Hes in a virtual dead heat with Obama because Obama is black.
The Obama presidency highlighted the Republican Party as the white peoples party. Far too many whites will never vote for a black man. But like all other civil rights struggles, there are just enough fair-minded white people to overcome the ignorance.
It still amazes me that a human being can hate another because of skin color. My black brothers and sisters also need to wake up. If they are prejudiced against whites, then they are no better than racist white people.
I think that by electing this countrys first black president, the United States has worldwide respect as never before. Now, we look like we walk it like we talk it.
What do you think the world view was in the 60s? We preached democracy and freedom while white police beat blacks with nightsticks, let dogs bite them, stung them with high-pressure fire hoses. I would imagine the United States was viewed as a nation of hypocrites.
White people, please, dont adhere to the tea party battle cry we want our country back. Check out Romneys position on important issues. Dont vote for Romney just to get rid of the black man in office.
A Stark County grand jury has issued indictments in the following cases:
Eddie Shell, 55, 249 26th St. NW, Massillon, aggravated possession of drugs and possession of cocaine...
Same guy? Was he convicted?
So many plattitudes and so much atttitude for the brain addled.
Little Eddie needs to take a breath and lighten up.

The new racism cry has nothing to do with skin color, but if you oppose a massive federal government then you are now consider a racists!
You will, of course notice, that he doesn’t ever offer any proof that anything he cited had anything to do with race.
“You lie!” well, he DID LIE. The author of course won’t address that or explain how this was racial.
Perhaps this letter writer slept through all the slamming of President Bush including being burned in efigy and a movie about him being assinated.
How is Obama black when his mother was white?
As I recall, the people that dispised George W. Bush used similar rhetoric. It has nothing to do with race.
A legislator shouted “You lie” at a State Of The Union Address”? Really? Do tell.
I don't have enormous dislike of Obama do to his color. I have enormous dislike for him because of the ideas in his head. The same dislike applies to Pelosi, Reid, Kerry and all of the screaming-meemies that worship those ideas. No matter their color or gender.
I never knew a$$ was a race.
But he did lie. So is it more disrespectful for a president to lie to the American people, or for a Congressman to tell the truth by saying, "You lie".
Well, which is it, young feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, if'n I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And if'n I drop, I'm a-gonna be in motion.
I don’t want to get rid of the half “black man” in office, I want to get rid of the freaking marxist in office.
Actually, I think this guy has two different events confused.
The “You lie comment” came during a session of Congress. And as you said, he did lie.
The State of the Union incident came after O totally dressed down the Supremes in front of an applauding audience. Roberts mouthed “That’s not true.”
This guy needs to get his diss moments correct to have any credibility.
Why do democrats always obsess about people’s skin color? I personally wouldn’t care if Zero looked like Christopher Walken. He has screwed up for four years, and its time for him to step aside and let someone else have a go at turning things around. I for one am really tired of paying 70 dollars to fill up my tank, and of looking at one shuttered up shop after another where there used to be hectic commerce.
Hussein is not disrepected. He is incompetent.
No, two different State of the Union addresses. Joe Wilson (correctly) shouted “you lie!” at the ‘09 SotUA. Justice Roberts mouthed “not true” (correctly again) at the ‘10 SotUA.
“Donald Trump leading the Republican primaries”
Ah yes, I remember that well.
The debates and all of the primaries he won.
(Thanks 2DV for this article. I gave me a huge chuckle.)
Justice Roberts mouthed “Yes We Can”.
You’re right. Thanks for the correction.
Larry, open your eyes, I don’t care for this kenyan but would vote for the following Black men in a heartbeat, Clarence Thomas, Walter E. Williams, Larry elder, and a whole bunch of others, It’s not because he is black, It’s because of how his thought process is flawed.
Really not worth quibbling about since he does lie but...
Hope the link works...I’m not good at it.
I’m past 78th birthday, and I never saw a president so direspected than George Bush, and especially when he professed and stood for and on Christian principles!
Most of the disrepect was focused on and toward: “God, Christ, the Church and the teaching of Christ!”
I should have known it wasn’t a SotUA because I don’t think there was one in ‘09 since he had just taken office. Doh!
The guy yammers so much it’s hard to remember which event he was at, lol.
I think Roberts actually mouthed “Hope and Change”, or was it “Forward”?
He could be a white/black like George zimmerman is a white/hispanic
I doubt it.
No self-respecting Massillonian would write for the Canton Suppository.
I grew up in Massillon. Nice little town that lives for High School Football and loves its Tigers.
The Canton paper was always a joke. At the time, the Massillon “Evening Independent” was a good Eisenhower-Republican paper......
My father married a pure Cherokee
My mother’s people were ashamed of me
The indians said I was white by law
The White Man always called me “Indian Squaw”
Half-breed, that’s all I ever heard
Half-breed, how I learned to hate the word
Half-breed, she’s no good they warned
Both sides were against me since the day I was born
We never settled, went from town to town
When you’re not welcome you don’t hang around
The other children always laughed at me “Give her a feather, she’s a Cherokee”
We weren’t accepted and I felt ashamed
Nineteen I left them, tell me who’s to blame
My life since then has been from man to man
But I can’t run away from what I am
*No wonder Cher loves Zero)
Seems like he’s out there babbling on every single day.
He doesn’t write for them, it’s a letter-to-the-editor.
Ya got me with that one. Roberts is a squish so I believed it. lol
all those people you named that you’d vote for are blacks that other blacks won’t vote for becuase they don’t act black when they agree with whitee. So, who are the racists?
I’ve gotten so sick of it that I don’t even deny it anymore. Go ahead and call me a racist and I’ll concede that I am one so we can get that out of the way and discuss his policies.
I think he actually said, "I got yer back... See ya in the hot tub!"
Aways remember Terry: they are the racists, not you.
They judge by skin-color; you judge from experience.
The author doesn’t have his head screwed on. The tea party doesn’t stand for white. It stands for freedom. He knows that..
I guess you were in a drug-induced stupor from 2001 through 2009 if you missed the way Bush was treated by all you "tolerant" liberals.
I thought I saw him mouth “Now where’s my money?”
I know I’m not a racist. But my point is that if they want to call me one, have at it. Now let’s discuss obama’s goals. All they can say is “You’re a racist”.
I talked to a guy who has two issues, abortion and gay rights. I pointed out to him that there have been 28 years of republicans in the white house since Roe V Wade. And there have been 12 years of democrats since Roe V Wade, not counting obama. And there are five so called conservative justices on the SC. With all that Roe V. Wade is still the law. So making a decision as to who to vote for based on abortion rights is stupid. Apparently it ain’t goin’ away.
Now, gay rights. First of all, I ask him if he’s gay. He says “no”. So I say “You will decide to vote for president based solely on an issue that does not even affect you?” He didn’t have a response.
I’ve come to the conclusion that there really are a bunch of white folks who are voting for obama so they won’t be thought of as racists. It sure as hell ain’t the issues. The race hustlers are winning.
I know a lot of despicable things were said about Bush, but being assinated has to be the worst.
