Weren't you the one who went to a KKK rally to talk about gun rights?

Maybe you are confusing it with a TEA Party rally.



Some of them were at the Tea Party rally as well.

Some of you clearly don't read the Internet enough.
You're all stuck in some ATS bubble where it's only policies that result in derision.


He said "some of the scorn stems from racism"...

Anyone who can disagree with that and keep a straight face hasn't been paying attention to the entire Internet for the last 7 years.


No, he said "the scorn." Not "some of."


“That’s not to suggest that everybody who objects to my policies may not have perfectly good reasons for it,”

How does that not mean "some"?

That wasn't even referring to scorn at all.

If you are referring all the way back to the original quote, then it would be useful to cite it and not the words of another poster directly upthread from you on the same page.

It would avoid confusion.

Haha whatever pal...
That's a quote from Obama from the OP source and those words come directly after he touches upon racism.

What are you going on about?

I bet if you go to a KKK rally, they sound a bit racist. Or perhaps a black Panthers' meeting, or Farrakan speech.

Point being, racism exists, but when you are the leader of the United States, some folks think you should rise above it.

What's that saying.....Oh yea.."Lead by example".


What has Obama done that was racist?

Did I miss something?


Clearly the last seven YEARS.

You're basing your argument over some videos you have viewed, I am guessing on the internet.

It's an easy google search, go look at the states that voted for Obama, and then go look up the highest concentration of African Americans by states, it's pretty much half and half, in fact a lot of states with the population of more than 30% AA voted for Romney in the last election!

Taking a simple random city poll does not give a real answer, it gives an answer you are looking for, fishing for it.

In any election there will be people voting purely on the most basic facts, for example here in Canada people voted Liberal purely because our PM is good looking.

The point I was trying to get across is that people voted against him purely because of the colour of his skin, not because of his policies, or something like that, just because he was black.
At least the people who voted for him voted because they didn't want some old white privileged war monger in there anymore. And racism was still very much alive before Obama got in, it was almost a statement that a lot of people wanted to throw out there, that it is possible for someone who is African American to become president.


According to the exit polls nearly all (95%) black voters cast their ballot for Democrat Barack Obama in 2008.

I just thought I would pipe in here with a "Glad Trump scares all y'all racists on the left."

I know, I know, if he is elected you all will just leave the country - sorry, but Delta doesn't accept EBT. Neither does Europe.

Dr. MLK also preached in a time when people with almost any colour was discriminated against, especially black people, who couldn't even eat in the same building as a white person.
Obama lives in a post MLK era, and racism is STILL quite evident, it's not his fault he was born black, his colour didn't vote him in, but the speculation still stands people who didn't vote for him, I can bet a big chunk didn't do so because of the colour of his skin.

However...a big chunk of the American people DID vote him in ONLY because of his race. While I can't stand the guy's politics and more, he was fairly elected. But...everyone that voted for him simply because of race, is a racist.

This thread is like sticky flypaper for racists. Just look at all the flies that got stuck on the sticky paper.

I would like to think no adult is ok with accepting Rascism as a reason for failure in any country. Especially when you have gotten all the way to being president lol I mean he's Waaay better off than I am, should I dare say he's successful bc he's black? Bc you can't have it both ways. You can't fail and succeed in your career bc of your skin color or the whole argument makes no sense. I voted for Obama in 2008 bc I felt he would have a very big impact on black youth and lead them away from inner city gang violence, who better than a black president to do that right? once I realized he didn't give a # about inner city youth I voted against him and he still got in. I don't feel I voted in a racist way, I feel my heart was in the right place and Obama cared about tipping the apple cart more than helping the middle class, which needed the most help since the recession. I still don't understand why he focused on health care instead of economic growth right after a recession. Seems like an issue that could have waited.

Is it really wrong to say that SOME of the scorn toward him is because he is black?

is it really?

No one in this country dislikes blacks? oh ok, cause i thought we still had race problems in this country. Little did I know all the racists are gone. whew I'm relieved. It's all sunshine and candy in America. We all get along just fine!

I know right, it was just last week, this colored lady tried to sit in the front of the bus, and I was like..What?!!?

That crazy Rosa, always looking for trouble.

sarcasm aside, race relations have come a long way and if you really pay attention, you notice things in each generation that point to a forward momentum. But as with anything, one step forward and two steps back.

He set race relations back 50 years in my opinion.

I didn't see an answer to the question, rather just a vague side jab. I'd like to understand how Obama is racist, perhaps some specific examples of racist legislation or executive order's he's signed might help? Has he appointed any racist supreme court justices? Outside of those things, there's really not much else the POTUS can do.

In what ways do you see race relations being set back 50 years? Do you not think that people themselves are responsible for their own actions and beliefs?

Could income inequality and poverty be a cause in and of itself?

I see a claim, but I don't see any supporting or corroborating evidence to point to Obama being the focal point for race relations...?
