but what i do find hilarious is when people think that hundreds of years of prejudice, bigotry and out right murder to simply disappear in less than a lifetime.

Absolutely disgusting. She can use her power to unite and serve as an example, but chooses to play the role and focus on what separates us.
I'm at a loss for words.

And yeah, Mexicans are Caucasians, (you want here racist white people saying this lol) But by Genetic they are basically Southern European, there are a lot of Native genes in the mix, but you get a fair number of Blonde Mexicans. The ratio runs as I said between 33% and 70% Southern European Genes with fractions falling on either side further.
A lot of Caucasians see Blonde, Brown red head as "Caucasian" but our immigrant waves of the last century include Jews, Greeks, Italians in fairly large numbers... a generation or two later they are called "Brunettes"
Your dealing with the semantics here of "Racism" vs "Holy crap your Racist as hell" But even the Nazis who all fled to South America didn't have a problem with "Spanish" in their consideration of European... Only crazy American Republicans are "that Racist" lol
Truth be told i'm not far from the border, when "not in the sun picking fruit all day" fresh off the boat so to speak a generation or two in I can't tell really a Mexican "descended person" from any other southern European really...
What would you call "Selena Gomez" "Charlie Sheen" "J lo" "Ricardo Montelban"
These aren't "Europeans" ?
They are a bit Olive and Brunette?
If you classify "white" as "British- Northern Europe" no... but to me, Latino? You mean Catholic People of Spanish decent mainly who celebrate Christmas, speak a romance language and settled the new world alongside the Dutch... about as white as you get before waxing psuedo albino... I can't "see" the Catholic - Christian dilemma as requiring since the time of "Gangs of NY" a disparity lol
The Pope... he's not "Caucasian" he's a different "Race"
I'm not even getting all Liberal and going for the "we are all human" thing... It's to me just xenophobic as hell to classify Hispanics separately, particularly with a 25% per generation rate of intermarriage... Moms 66% Spanish Dads from Germany...to some that's "not white" but to me the people that think that looking at the Blonde haired browned eye girl are totally in the David Duke camp of Racism...
Caucasian if in America to some = Caucasian English speaking with light eyes and almost no skin pigment as the only criteria, well... I don't know what to say lol, that's "a bit much" in my book
America is Racist as hell lol, Even Obama never mentions he's actually a dark skinned Caucasian, His Mom was White the person who gave birth to him, in a lot of cultures, saying he is Black would be considered BS

Why does she continue to do this?
...because the issues she speaks about still exist.
Yoweri Museveni, the president of Uganda, told an audience including Bill Clinton: "African chiefs were the ones waging war on each other and capturing their own people and selling them. If anyone should apologise it should be the African chiefs. We still have those traitors here even today."

I disagree entirely with your assessment of the speech. While I don't feel Mrs. Obama is a racist, her comments do reflect the title.
Psst...those are the people you get rich off of, so don't sweat it. Like sheep being herded. Let them be...cash in on them in other avenues in life.

It's because there still are many people in this nation that judge people based on the color of their skin, but don't have the juevos to be honest about it. I have more respect for an honest racist than I do to those that claim their hatred lies in political or ideological roots.
That being said, this article was twisted in a way to appeal to those closet racists that get outraged at false stories such as these. Why do people fall for it?
Easy to make money of the mentally challenged , children and the elderly too, but that doesn't make it right or something to be proud about either.
Thats the real problem and bigger problem than racism: Money, and how willing people are to capitalize on others misfortunes to make money or even willing to keep them down for a buck.
