'Race ... will have to be resolved,' civil rights leader says of election By Salena Zito TRIBUNE-REVIEW Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Black people who say Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama "is not black enough" likely are talking about his race-neutral campaign and not skin color, veteran civil rights leader Ron Daniels said Tuesday.

These idiots are dying to inject race into Obama’s campaign, and if they do so, it will come back and bite them squarely on their posteriors.

Democrats injected race identity politics into the system and now it’s about to blow up in their faces.

Some of these so-called civil rights leaders, probably on hillary’s payroll - imagine cold hard cash in freezers - will attack obama and gain the wrath of the ordinary black voter. IMO, they will see these “leaders” as abandoning them and their race. As the attacks increase, black voters will move away from hillary by the millions. And as they abandon hillary, the rat party will look for another “race” - hispanics - to make up the lost votes. This will snowball as the rat party ignores black voters, driving more away from hillary. The civil rights caretakers are about to lose control of the plantation.

I believe we’re about to see a fatal and irrepairable chasm open in the rat party. And this split will display itself in all its bloody gore to the American citizens this summer at the rat convention.

“The public discussion, “Obama and the Relevance of Race in the 21st Century,” drew about 50 people to the community college’s North Side campus, most of them young and white. “

The speaker in his best Jackie Chiles voice looked out over the audience and said, “who are all these crackers out here???”

Guilty white liberals.... reminds me of the bad guy from the DaVinci Code. Always whipping his back....

I have to wonder, if Obama loses the general election, will we be subject to 4 more years of incessant whining and screeching about how America is a racist nation? Will the left and the media blame his loss entirely on race? I wouldn’t be surprised.

Hey Ron Daniels:

Run as a black racist and see how far you get.

Even in the Democrat primary.

Barack Obama “is not black enough”

Can everyone here imagine the uproar if I stated that I could not support McCain because he was not “white enough?”

Race ... will have to be resolved

It was resolved years ago. The average person will vote for anyone who can show themselves to be decent and intelligent, regardless of race. But race has become too precious a commodity to allow it to slip away. The media love it, the politicians love it, and the lawyers love it. Good money to be made in race-mongering.

I call B.S.

I'd bet him that many, many blacks DO IN FACT judge their fellow blacks by the degree or shade of their "blackness"......

There are wild bears in your state.

Their droppings are found in the woods.

Scenario 1: Clintons are able to steal the nomination. Charges of Racism in the Dem Party for about 5 minutes, then praise for the Clintons political acumen and ability to lead.

Scenario 1a: Then we will be told how fortunate the country was spared having to watch a clean, articulate, rising star, rhetorical wunderkind like Obama be pilloried, slandered, whipped, belittled, swift-boated, and lynched by the Racist Republicans.

Scenario 2: Obama loses in the GE. Expect riots after the talking heads are done with the fraud, intimidation, innuendo of underhanded Republican tactics, and discussion of how whitey turned out a 10-1 vote against Obama.

Scenario 3: Obamorons turn out in record numbers and sweep him into office. Anything he tries that fails will be blamed on Racist Republicans.

If voting for a black candidate BECAUSE he is black is the only qualification, then that voter should NOT be allowed to vote. This is serious business, electing a President of the US to govern ALL the people. This kind of voting is as racist as blacks who accuse whites of voting against a black candidate because he is black. I know this can’t be proven but do you understand why this kind of voting is so repugnant to the electorate? There are ISSUES that should decide who the President is, not the color of his skin. This is just ridiculous. I saw one black guy on FOX who openly admitted he is voting Barack because he is the first African American who he has had the chance to vote for. That is NO reason to select a candidate. He’s black so he’s going to be sure I’m taken care of. I guess that’s the gist of that argument. How ridiculous!

I hope the Clintons steal the nomination from Obama and the Black Dems riot and split the ‘Rat Party right down the middle.

Texas Pubbies: Do not listen to Dick Morris and cross-over and vote for Obama. Let Hillary win Texas. Let’s see a blood bath at the Dem Convention in Denver.

The same goes for women who will only vote for Hillary because she’s a woman. It’s funny hearing the press talk about this. They never report it as if it’s a bad and horrible thing. Where’s the outrage that is thrown at the right when it’s whispered that the Right will not vote for someone because of their sex and race. When it comes to the democrats it’s seen as Standard Operating Procedure.

Excellent logic that will permeate throughout the govt subsidized inner cities nation-wide.

Good Americans of all races will not fall victim to that nonsense, but the owe-me(s) will embrace that “always a victim concept.”

Right, and thus you see 88%-12% black voter turnout for Obama, and perhaps 51%-49% for Clinton. So which group represents the "average person" who "can't see past race" ?

You feel that way because you have moral uprightness, care about the republic and vote for a candidate based on issues, not the color of a person’s skin. That’s what separates you from the racist democrat party.

Some unknown number of rat voters - and I think it’s a large number - don’t believe as you do.

You can be "black enough" when it's a local race and 80% of your voting population is black

When winning requires convincing significant numbers of white people to vote for you, you have to be a good person who happens to be of dark complexion. A black conservative Republican can pull it off, but it's real hard for a Democrat to pull off.

Moslems who say Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama "is not Moslem enough" likely are talking about his faith-neutral campaign and not his supposed repudiation of early Islamic indoctrination, veteran terrorist leaders said Tuesday.
