CNN's Acosta to Romney: 'If You Somehow Win,' How Would You 'Assure Blacks You'd Be Their President
Newsbusters ^ | September 25, 2012

Posted on 09/25/2012 6:40:12 PM PDT by SMGFan

CNN's Jim Acosta on Tuesday's Situation Room asked what many will think was a truly offensive question.

"If you were to somehow beat the first African-American president, what would you say to the black community to assure them that you would be their president also?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

“Hi. I’m a dumbass.”

This “dumbass” is only asking the questions its producer told it too. And they probably came directly from MediaMatters.

Let me tell you something black folk, your little boy-king has set you back - in my book anyway.

I just can't help but believe that ultimately Obama will have the same effect on the race industry (and liberalism as a whole for that matter) that Clinton had on feminism. Their silence during the toon's travails spoke volumes about the hollowness of their cause and all the vagina costumes on the planet haven't given them any regained relevance. I pray Obama will have a similar effect elsewhere.

A lot of blacks got pretty friggin uppity

Whew, It has dawned on me that “a lot of blacks” ARE pretty uppity. They are doctors, lawyers , engineers, servicemen, ASSIMILATED AND AMERICAN!! THEY also communicate in calm, and thoughtful use of language. Just because A PERSON, upsets you in the aisle, or at the conveniance store , you make a mental note of the OFFENSE and then grace us all with your intellect.

I must ask, did any one else , of any other race OFFEND you on or around the time these “blacks” offended you. I don’t expect an answer. What I do wish for , though, is that we don’t let our REACTIONS , to what may happen during our day, give a nasty taint to our attitudes. That would be the MOST backward looking result Oblah blah will have accomplished and I am sure , is one of his goals. You see , racial harmony is a terrifying prospect to those that require racial seperatism to succeed politically or economically. If this harmony exists then the old “whitey is keepin’ you down “ mantra evaporates like a fart in a hurricane.

So maybe you can see that “uppity blacks” is a poor choice of words born of a poorer still attitude and I pray that you would retract the former and correct the latter.

I've a story.

I've often heard that Pop Eye's Chicken was a good place to eat.....

The only Pop Eye's I know of is in North Tulsa, OK. A predominately black area of Tulsa. I happened to be in town one afternoon...and stopped in. Walked up to the counter...as two black girl customers were talking to the counter girl. All were black...I stood there looking at the menu..and then looking at the girl. She didn't even acknowledge me...even the black girl customers sort of motioned that she should take my order.

She ignored them...then another black employee...motioned to her...that she should recognize me. And I could tell she was put-out..but she finally took my order.

I just think it's crazy....and sad. Obama has sent back race relations 50 - 60 years.............

I will make Black unemployment less than the current 25%.”

IMO, that is going to be a difficult task for any administration. Blacks tend to congregate in the inner city where there are few, if any, jobs available. There are jobs available all over the U.S. in places such as the oil patch in North Dakota but they would have to relocate, be trained and be willing to work hard. As long as the benefits for not working come even close to what they can make working, there will be no reason for them to change. They are also competing for low skill jobs with illegals who are a whole lot more industrious.

Yep, the great uniter has turned out to be the most divisive force between blacks and whites I can recall.

I’ve seen the same thing you describe....blacks in service jobs ignoring whites, or being openly hostile to them, while looooovin’ all over their homies.

Increasingly, when I read the comment sections of news articles involving black-on-white crime, the anger is palpable. Fewer news sites are allowing comments for such articles, probably not a coincidence. More white folk are pissed off.
