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.
