Skip to comments.Are we to be divided along color lines?

I don't understand why one group of our Lawmakers are meeting with the President to the exclusion of the rest of them regarding employment in the Black community. Do only white Lawmakers represent the 'whites' and black Lawmakers represent 'black' Americans?
It makes me sick at the stomach to see how we are divided along skin color lines since this administration came to power.
Am I wrong in my assessment?
He never meant it — not for minute.
As sure as the demographics have changed in our young country, the borders have changed as well. As one changes so will the other.
No, you are not wrong.
President Bush would never have met with a group of white-only lawmakers, nor would he have even entertained the thought.
I wish some white congressmen would crash this little party. I’d like to see the reaction.
Character, common sense, courage. Those are the traits I expect from our leaders. 0 has none of them.
so does Obama only represent biracials , or as George Jefferson would say- ZEBRAS
Another lie from Barry -oh....
a great indicator is how he and holder have swept the Black Panther issue under the carpet. If it were KKK it would be front and center....exemplary. Shows the real mentality. America is not blind.
And all this time I thought he was an “Asack”, who knew.
It’s easy for me to understand. Obama and his tribe are White hating racists.
Your assessment is simplistic. Race has ALWAYS been a primary dividing line in American culture and American politics. Obama is not the first Democratic candidate to get 90% support from black voters.
US Law and Supreme Court rulings REQUIRE states to gerrymander districts that are majority black for the explicit purpose of electing black officials. It works because, in general, blacks vote only for blacks.
The Dems are trying to engineer newer immigrants into also organizing by race and ethnicity, based on perceived racial grievance and racial solidarity. They have had good success with Latino/Hispanics and are starting to make inroads with Asians in getting them to vote this way.
So far (excpeting perhaps the last three special elections where it is hard to tease out all the factors leading to Democratic defeat) whites have resisted using race as a primary sorting mechanism on who they vote for. Although the Republican party almost always wins a majority of white voters nationwide in Presidential elections.
The Meida Elite is very invested in maintaining this asymetrical state as long as possible. Obama, by so clearly failing to be the “post racial” leader he implied, may be hastening the day when our politics become even more explicitly racial, and the GOP (or a replacement) becomes an explicitly pro-white party.
As you imply, the state of affairs where black organization for political ends is encouraged, and they go get real benefits for themselves not available to others (affirmative action, quotas, special hate crime rules, minority set asides in contracts, yada yada yada) but a similar organization for political ends by whites is tacitly forbidden (by media and the elites) is too nonsensical to survive much longer.
Particularly when we are being constantly reminded that we (whites) will soon be a minority in the USA. Maybe it *is* time to start acting like the other minorities and organize on behalf our oursleves, rather than continuing to promote univeral ideologies that (in the end) are always turned against us.
Who nurtured and raised Obama?
They must have been terrible people for him to turn on all white people!
Ha! “Asack” is much more fitting than Blasian.
So much for the separation of Church & State.
It certainly was not Obama’s feral father who screwed anything that moved.
I am a simple person.
I guess, what I didn't expect to see was such blatant racism!
“Maybe it *is* time to start acting like the other minorities and organize on behalf our ourselves .....”
On a personal level, I have already started.
This month I am celebrating White History Month and will each February. ;>)
What exactly did you expect? Racial hatred exists on both sides of the Black/White divide; the difference is that it’s O.K. for Blacks to hate whites; just as it’s o.k. for them to lie about the fact that they actually hate whites. It’s purely and simply the “American” way. And it’s going to continue on like that until the country either disbands or get’s geographically divided.
Or to quote a famous guy, “it is what it is”.
Maybe you are noticing it more because the person delivering it is black himself, rather than a white acting on behalf of the organized black lobby?
Certainly blatent racism emminating from our government is at least 30 years old, maybe more. Consider:
This has become so internalized that liberal whites now proactively act this way even when the government isn't prodding them to do so.
For instance Bill Gates just created a huge program of scholarships for children that EXCLUDES whites, while inviting every other race to apply.
Being a simple person (which I consider myself too) we tend to ignore the small injustices and just get on with life.
This type of blatent rigging of things for blacks has been supported by both the GOP and Democratic party. Where are we to turn to get reciprocity? Will we continue to argue only for a return to "color blind" policy, or will anger push us all the way to pushing for explicitly pro-white policies to match the 30 years of pro black ones?
These are interesting questions, questions that have somehow become more obvious with Obama blatently running the affirmative action state of behalf of his chosen minority.
Standard Disclaimer: not all blacks support these policies. But using Dem voting as a rough proxy: 95% do.
Pete Stark, the moonbat Congressman from the Bay Area, tried to join the Black Caucus (because a large percentage of his constituents were black) but was rejected.
Al sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Benjamin Jealous, Marc Moiral, Dorothy Height’s president, not ours.
“This type of blatent rigging of things for blacks has been supported by both the GOP and Democratic party.”
Very true. Great post.
“Pete Stark, the moonbat Congressman from the Bay Area, tried to join the Black Caucus (because a large percentage of his constituents were black) but was rejected.”
Steve Cohen, a fellow moonbat congress critter representing the Memphis area, also tried to join but was turned away because of his melanin deficiency.
What the gerrymandering does is produce black Congressmen and Congresswomen who espouse leftist and victimologist viewpoints which don't appeal much to non-minority voters, so they aren't competitive in statewide races.
I think the last person to go directly from the House of Representatives to the Presidency was Garfield (and he had been elected to the Senate before winning the Presidency, just hadn't taken his seat there yet). I think he was the only one ever to go directly from the House to the White House (Lincoln was an ex-Congressman when elected President). To be a contender for the Presidency, you usually need to be a senator, governor, vice president, or a former holder of one of those positions, or else a war-hero general.
The current system benefits black politicians who can win re-election easily, but have no prospects of advancing to higher office. It may not really help the Democrats, but they are stuck with it.
I was in the break-room at work tonight and a black coworker was speaking: “...what is going on with our leaders? Who is running the country, who is taking care of us?. I mean what is goin on, man this is just crazy. They say Obama has had more than 100 parties in the white house since he been President, well what did they think when they put him in office: he's Black - he gonna party. He been liquoring up since he got there, I mean - what did they expect?
