Anonymous opponents used "push polling" to suggest that McCain's Bangladeshi born daughter was his own, illegitimate black child. In push polling, a voter gets a call, ostensibly from a polling company, asking which candidate the voter supports. In this case, if the "pollster" determined that the person was a McCain supporter, he made statements designed to create doubt about the senator.

here is where you will find the statistics on the institutionalized racism caused by the so called "war on drugs".
Hey, saphorina. Are you a minority i.e. black person in America??? I ask because you insult me, as a black man who leans conservative
Another study presented at the conference, which was in Palm Springs, Calif., explored relationships between racial bias and political affiliation by analyzing self-reported beliefs, voting patterns and the results of psychological tests that measure implicit attitudes -- subtle stereotypes people hold about various groups.
That study found that supporters of President Bush and other conservatives had stronger self-admitted and implicit biases against blacks than liberals did.
For their study, Nosek, Banaji and social psychologist Erik Thompson culled self-acknowledged views about blacks from nearly 130,000 whites, who volunteered online to participate in a widely used test of racial bias that measures the speed of people's associations between black or white faces and positive or negative words. The researchers examined correlations between explicit and implicit attitudes and voting behavior in all 435 congressional districts.
The analysis found that substantial majorities of Americans, liberals and conservatives, found it more difficult to associate black faces with positive concepts than white faces -- evidence of implicit bias. But districts that registered higher levels of bias systematically produced more votes for Bush.
This thread is about a black man who was ridiculed for running as a republican and all I could do was offer my opinion and maybe some perspective at the time, which I did. I never called you an uncle tom but I won't lie there are plenty of folk that I do consider uncle tom's usually it has nothing to do with politics. Black folk that run up behind white folk, changing themselves to suit white folk or just to get ahead...black folk that take the opinion of white folk as gospel just cause they white...and black folk that wish they were white so they treat other black folk like second class citizens...racist black folk are uncle tom's...now, do you fit this bill, I don't know you personally, and I actually couldn't careless.

DO you really think there are black people in the KKK?
Gays in the KKK?
Hippies in the KKK?
Hispanics in the KKK?
Jews in the KKK?
Scientists in the KKK?
Liberals period in the KKK?
Ahh, so your universal has been broken. How many racists do you know who say, "I have a black friend"?
Tell me, please, I know of one KKK member, a former KKK member, who is a democrat, who apologized for being in the KKK.
ahh. And which, pray tell, members are those? I assume you can give names, and links to KKK rosters?
The rest are Republican Senators and in the House.
Ahh, and this must mean every Republican is a KKK member. When was the last time you looked up the word bigot? Webster defines it as:
Never heard Old Strummy aplogizing for calling out for the genocide of blacks did you?
a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices

Uhhh...Republican groups? I really hope you can back that with some unbiased figures, such as national GOP funds supporting the KKK or something.

Justice Sunday Preachers
Senate majority leader Bill Frist appeared through a telecast as a speaker at "Justice Sunday," at the invitation of the event's main sponsor, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins. "Justice Sunday" was promoted as a rally to portray Democrats as being "against people of faith." Many of the speakers compared the plight of conservative Christians to the civil rights movement. But in sharing the stage with Perkins, who introduced him to the rally, Frist was associating himself with someone who has longstanding ties to racist organizations.
Four years ago, Perkins addressed the Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), America's premier white supremacist organization, the successor to the White Citizens Councils, which battled integration in the South. In 1996 Perkins paid former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke $82,500 for his mailing list. At the time, Perkins was the campaign manager for a right-wing Republican candidate for the US Senate in Louisiana. The Federal Election Commission fined the campaign Perkins ran $3,000 for attempting to hide the money paid to Duke.
The Rev. Reverend Darrell D. Elligan, president of Concerned Black Clergy, called McKinney competent, courageous and committed.
"She has our support unconditionally," Elligan said. "She is not a threat to the security of our country."
