(1) The "stupidly" comment
(2) Failing to prosecute the New Black Panthers for intimidating white voters
(3) Nominating a "wise Latina" who supported racial quotas (Ricci)
(4) His decades-long affiliation with Rev. Wright.
(5) His racially polarized public approval -- already his disapproval is pretty high with whites, but his black support is almost unanimous (I know there's Sowell, Walter Williams).
Freepers can probably supply more examples.
People are waking up to the fact that we have the hate whitey husband and wife team in the big house.
The problem is the GOP have not a single gonad amongst them.
People have already forgotten all about the GATES incident
Opportunity is good, but they need to step carefully on this one so that they aren’t seen as reinforcing the racist stereotypes some have against the GOP.
I actually have a theory that Black voters are the next big conservative group.
Typically don’t like to dwell on race that much but when I saw an approval rating for Zero of 97% among blacks it really got me to thinking. You couldn’t get 97% of the general population to agree on what time it is. Does this popularity arise from his racial makeup or is this a function of superior job performance? s/
“... .. The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know there’s a reaction that’s been been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that’s just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it...” - Senator Barack Obama
Obviously there are a lot of folk from Asian ancestry in Hawaii, generally the teams arent as tall
It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names. - “Dreams from My Father”
The GOP has the greatest opportunity to gain voters, ever in this Health care death bill, but I am not hearing much from them.
Americans of both parties are up in arms over this thing and Republicans seem to be out to lunch.
I believe you're closer to the truth the posters who say the American public has already forgotten the Gates incident. These things are cumulative, and your list shows a string of incidents that illustrate Obama's bigotry and bias.
By gaining a few additional percentages of the white vote, the Republicans can wipe out all the Dem. gains among minorities. Obama might be doing much of their work for them, but talk show hosts and writers and others can provide reminders of his record of bias.
And Republicans can still make gains among Hispanics and Asians if they ignore those who think pandering to groups is the answer. They won't gain anything among blacks as long as Obama is on the picture.
The president said: “I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry.”
Pretty angry because a private citizen saw a possible burglary and the police response was rapid?
I think it’s fair to say, number one, how great to live in a good community. And number 2) how stupid of Harvard Professor Gates not to understand the misunderstanding. Eh? What? Me a burglar?! No I live here, look (shows ID and has a jolly good laugh with white cop). Now that’s how racism is transcended (things like racisim don’t “end” they just fade away).
It’s called morality, common sense, humor, virtue...
The president’s statement: “I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry” - is absolute proof of indecent values and of how UNAMERICAN he is to the core.
Dr. Gates couldn’t have asked for better. A private citizen and the local law RUSHED to protect his property. He was a beneficiarly of GOOD and he reacted like a wet rooster on LSD.
That situation was literally made by God for smiles, handshakes, an offer of a cup of coffee, good feeling and jollity. Anything else simply doesn’t make sense (in a moral world).
