Castro: Racism in US keeps many away from Obama

HAVANA (AP) - Fidel Castro says a "profound racism" in the United States will stop millions from voting for Barack Obama in next month's presidential election. The ailing, 82-year-old former Cuban president says it is "a miracle that the Democratic candidate hasn't suffered the same luck as (assassinated leaders) Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and others who harbored dreams of equality and justice."

No Fidel, it won't be race but rather Obama’s commitment to your Marxist ideology.

Castro also described Republican presidential candidate John McCain as "bellicose."

Sounds as though Castro is in Obama’s corner. Let’s see, Obama is backed by Farrakhan and now Castro, that ought to tell the ‘undecideds’ quite a bit if they have half a brain.

When Fidel was younger, he would come to NYC to address the United Nations. During this time he would go through Harlem and would get a hero's welcome.

I guess Castro has already been contacted by ACORN and voted (several times) in Ohio.

I want to be the first to thank Fidel (if he is still alive) for endorsing B.O. , thus making South Florida even more competitive for McCain .

God Bless the Cuban community and the Police for doing the Right thing !

From what I understand it was Farrakhan and the NOI that killed Malcom X. Why would Obama worry about him?

For me, it’s not about Obamas race. I’d have voted for Colin Powell (before he showed his less than conservative side). It’s about the fact that Obama is...A:) Liberal, B:)Liberal, C:)Inexperienced, D:) Liberal....

This from a geriatric dictator who never held an honest election in his whole life?

What does he know?

Obama.

Both are totalitarians

And both need an extensive dose of ridicule.

Tonight I was told that Obama’s speeches in Philly today were from Malcolm X and the key words were “bamboozled” and “hoodwinked” which that part of his speech came out of the scene from the movie before he went to Mecca. Also in the DVD’s of his speeches. Seems when he speaks in black areas, he gives the speeches from Malcolm X.

Now I would like to confirm but I have never heard a Malcolm X speech in my life and I don’t listen to Obama’s speeches either.

If Obama is channeling Malcolm X what is next? The person that told me was frightened about Obama getting elected and what will happen when he doesn’t. Seems those two words mean something that I have no idea about.

Have written some people with the info and more but frankly this is upsetting that he is channeling Malcolm X in the black community. Had not planned on posting this on the open forum but seeing Castro’s words sent a chill up my spine. Maybe some of you can confirm as conservative black Republicans are getting freaked out by this.

Any suggestions?

Hopefully that is the next Red State if McCain gets elected ?
Palin mentioned the Castro Bros in her debate and subsequent times there after , she is awesome .

The Exiles have claim to what is rightfully theirs ...Not B.O. , Code Stink , and ol’ Commie Carter ....

What's with the new "violence and rage" angle. The MSM, useless idiots, etc., accusing McCain/Palin supporters of rage and threats of violence.

What the heck are they planning? Kenyan-style marxist riots? Worrisome.

"I don’t believe 90% of blacks are voting for Obama. They want you to believe that; but I don’t."

I've seen election after election in Philly where the black candidate gets not less than 97% of the black vote. Many will vote for Obama because they expect what every inner city black voter expects: the black man to remember his people, to lavish government benefits and invented government jobs on them, and they know they won't have to pay a dime for any of it. As for the rest, the first thing that comes to mind is Nagin's "chocolate city" remark: taking over, getting back at whitey, take your pick.

If the black vote in Philly is anything less than 99.5% for The Marxist I'll be stupefied.

The MSM is accusing McCain/Palin of what Obama is inciting.

I detest the MSM — swear they are either from the radical 60’s or are sons and daughters of that radical anti-war crowd. They don’t seem to love America and believe in our Constitution and what we stand for as they would rather turn this Country over to a socialist!
