"From what I read, something like 90% of African Americans are voting for Senator Obama. If that isn't pure racism, nothing is."
From what I read, something like 90% of African Americans are voting for Senator Obama. If that isn't pure racism, nothing is.
Perhaps African Americans can rise above this someday and follow in the example of White Americans of whom the great majority vote on issues rather than race.
When that day comes, I will celebrate the end of racism in America. In the meantime, let's keep hope alive!
Racism is clearly a factor. I refuse to vote for that jive turkey honkey Obama.
You clearly didn’t get the memo. Only whites can be racists and the only chance they have to redeem themselves is to vote for Obama while proclaiming that America is ready.
Let’s all admit it, vanities are killing FR.
Well, dunno about Racism, but certainly a bigoted idea.
If racism is, sexism is. It’s baloney either way, supposedly the battle of those who dislike 10% of the population vs. those who dislike 50%.
Sounds like the Democrat Chickens have come home to roost.
Of course it is. It has always been that since the day the black guy got in the race. If you are white and you do not vote for him, there is ONLY ONE REASON AND ONE REASON ONLY, he was black and you are a racists. Nothing else. Not that he is unfit and untrained and simply is an idiot in an empty suit. It is and always will be about race. After he loses to McCain-Palin, it will be the talk of the MSM, how racist America IS AND STILL IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE, racist against the black guy. Of course now, if a black conservative were running and won, he would be an uncle Tom, having given in to white America, and thus not a black brother.
There. Fixed it for you.
I bet it is closer to 95%
It’s not about race. Its about background and integity. Obama has no experience doing anything useful other then stirring the pot!
Could there be something of a backlash against Obama? Perhaps he is not "Black" enough (50%), or maybe that he wasn't raised in the typical "Black Experience". Not sure, but it will be interesting to see the final results.
The figures against Hillary -— another liberal -— were 96% blacks voting for Obama.
It’s staggering racism.
Maybe so, but not with me. I would love to elect a Black American to the Presidency—and many are highly qualified—but not Obama.
Racism is a factor for many Obama supporters.
Age-ism is a factor for many McCain supporters.
Feminism is a factor for many Palin supporters.
Plagiarism is a factor for many Biden supporters.
it’s higher than 90%
“what” folks are and identify “as” shapes their perspective always and usually in the end trumps everything
i have argued this here with moderate freepers since the day I joined 8 years ago
No see the Republicans scare/trick the minorities into voting for them they aren’t there because they believe in anything they are just fools/traitors. GOP is only for whites really all minorities belong to the Dems.
Affirmative action (aka affirmed racism) is the only way Hussein can hope to emerge as the victor. Race is the only card obama plays.
That should go far with middle age white men and women! Ha!
There’s nothing wrong with vanities in their place and this one was in the right place.
A big ROTFLMAO, you got that right.....every time I see a header I think , "damn, what pundit wrote that??"
and instead it's usually just some obscure blogger or freeper or both musing...
but given the surge in enthusiasm it's ok I guess, keeps folks pumped up and at times is a source for making good catches like buckhead's famous rathergate snag.
i reckon JR and the PTB here figure a little more leeway in the this area right now is prudent....I bet FR's numbers and hits are swelling now too
Racism is a factor... but when you look at it, its mostly a wash.
Blacks will vote in large numbers for him, simply because he’s black. Certain whites will vote him simply because of “white guilt”, and certain others won’t vote for him no matter what because of the simple fact he is black.
In the end these 3 will balance each other out, but rather than blame their message, and a horrible candidate selection the press will blame white racists for Fauxbama’s loss. Why? Simple... Liberals can not handle the truth. When they are rejected on issues and principle, they have to spin it as faults in others, not faults in themselves.
I just can’t keep up with this stuff. Seems only a few months ago our local blacks were saying BO is not really black because he has a white momma and was raised white. Didn’t Jesse Jerkoff have something to say on this point?
It just befuddles me. Black, sort of black, bigots, the whole this is just distasteful. I guess its McCain.
A bigot is a person who is intolerant of opinions, lifestyles, or identities differing from his or her own, and bigotry is the corresponding state of mind. Bigot is often used as a pejorative term against a person who is obstinately devoted to prejudices even when these views are challenged or proven to be false or not universally applicable or acceptable.
Racism is the belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
I have no objection to vanities, as long as they are marked as such. Would you mind adding (vanity) to the title the next time you post one, so I can decide if I want to read it or not?
Someone pointed out this is posted in chat, but I view replies, so I have no idea if it is ‘chat’ or an editorial.
And I agree with your point.
I wonder if the polls of black voters are skewed by an intimidation factor. There may be a number of blacks that don’t buy Obama’s line but don’t want to fight their neighbors. A few percent? More?
Sign me up!
(Heard somewhere else and repeated here)... I’m not voting for Obama because his skin is dark. I’m not voting for Obama because his soul is dark.
Racism is a factor in every election.
Black Americans who don't know what Everett McKinley Dirksen did for them vote for Democrats
Black Americans who don't heed Thomas Sowells wise observations vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who ignore Bill Cosbys sage advice vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who view the accomplishments of Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, and Morgan Freeman with contempt while admiring Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, and other problem profiteers vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who support a United States Senator for President with virtually no senatorial accomplishments vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who never got rich voting for Democrats vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who voted Democrat for fifty years and blames their woes on Republicans vote for Democrats.
Black Americans who believe they are equal but accept the Democrats insistence that they are not equal vote for Democrats.
That depends on your vote for mccain is based on his skin color, then I could see your rational that black people are supporting Obama because of their skin color.
To me its run-of-the-mill black people supporting a democrat. Most times, and I’ve checked the record, black people generally don’t care what color skin the democrat has, just as long as the person is a democrat.
Bill and Hillary are not black. Gore isn’t last time I checked. Neither is John Kerry. They all took the lions share of the black vote and I bet you didn’t create a thread to reference Bill, Hillary, Al or John’s skin color.
I think you are creating this for attention.
