Greetings,
The topic is simple.. What is your feelings on the possibility of a black President coming to office in the near future? I don't want everyone to play the Colin Powell card, but lets speak realisticly, factoring in the still existing race problem we have, social-political issues, public perception, etc etc..

As far as my belief..

Honestly.. I do not think America is ready for a black president and that is the honest truth. There is still a lot of ignorance in the air within the country and it will probably continue to exist on a large level for a while. I don't think if he was elected he couldn't win, I just don't think it would even get that far... As long as we have a country full of people who have not gotten past religious and ethnic differences then we will never be ready for an African American present..

Just my view..

Don't play the Colin Powell card? How can you not?!

If he would have run on the Republican ticket in 2000, he would've had my vote. After his BS dog and pony show at the UN before the Iraq invasion, I will never vote for him.

When you mention the possibility of a black President, Colin Powell was not even in my 1st thoughs, he's too moderate (wishy washy). My 1st thought was Condaleeza Rice.

One thing you can count on is that the 1st will not be a Democrat. Democrats go out of their way to put down major black candidates.

Perfect example is what they did to Al Sharpton when he announced he was running for President in 2004. They promptly forced Carol "Rodham" Braun to run so she would take votes away from Sharpton.

Another great example is Maynard Jackson vs Terry Mcaullife in 1992. Maynard Jackson was set to become DNC leader, but out of nowhere Clintons buddy Terry Mcauliffe won the position.

I'm not sure about a "black president", but I have no problem at all with a president who happens to black.

Who cares? Is it a big issue?

NO. It's really not an issue.

I work with a lot of black people who are far more intelligent, educated and sociably acceptable than a lot of white people I know.

It's only in the eyes of the media and racists.

Are you kidding? the republican party will never allowed a black American in their ranks to be anything else but under the ranks of their elite domination.

No matter how well they have black americans in positions of so call "power" the presidency of the US is still a white's only member's club.

I truly believe that in 2000, Colin Powell could've won the presidency.

But his wife had to go pull the plug on that. Or so we've been told.

Actually none of the two main political parties in this country has even favor a black american candidate.

Too hard for them to let go, the same way that women has not chance in the presidency male's only club either.

OH, but wait! My friend keeps claiming loudly that Barak Obama is "going places!"

Yeah maybe in a few years.. I'd say J.C. Watts from Oklahoma might be goin somewhere much quicker than Barak....

Stay tuned!

Didn't you vote for David Duke?

I'm just curious, I mean if you're going to be giving us lectures on race relations and all.

I believe that he will be the first one, but that will be only after our country goes through a major change that will create a window of opportunity and the right occasion. I see this happening in about 10 or more.

I've noticed that even though JC Watts is officially out of politix, he still goes the guest rounds on the Sunday morning talks. That makes me think they might be grooming him for a possible run.

If that's the case, I will not vote for him.

And I used to like him. Now I see him as a tool of the party.

He's great, though. That's the sad thing.

Wow, I come back and people start posting.. Anyway..

It is a real issue.. It is a representation of the society we live in. It may not be something that you find important to the country, but in all senses.. I don't think a lot of people would feel too good about it..

I think we would get a female president before that.. But then again, I think that is far off, considering how ignorant some of our voters are.

I voted for Duke because he was running against Edwin Edwards, who is serving time right now for stuff he did as governor.

Just as if you voted for Clinton, it doesn't make you an adulterer. Voting for Duke does not make you racist.

I gave examples of Dems holding back Black candidates, has anyone responded with Republican examples? No.

How have republicans held them back?

KKK-Lynchs, burnings, shot gun murder, dragged behind cars.
WKK- Same thing.
CCC-Same thing.
Neo-Nazis-Same thing.
GOP=Same thing.

Republicans/Dixie Crats- Segregation, supported KKK/WKK/CCC/Neo-Nazis and most were members of said groups.

Also, how many elected republican blacks are in power right now? 0

"But we have Rice!"

Not elected, and really, she is Mrs. Bush, a parrot for Cheney/Rove.(the real president and vice president)

She's one creepy lady.


Definitely a token and puppet.

I would never vote for her.

And again, I have said on other topics, the Secret Service would get fed up with losing agents left and right to republicans and just tshoot the president to get it over with. You know, after the KKK, WKK, Neo0Nazis, CCC, GOP, and the rest kill a couple dozen agents I would be willing to shoot the president to save the Secret Service before every agent is killed.
