Hi lucien,
I am so sorry to her about your sister, I can relate, my daughter is a junior in college she is also a juvenile diabetic, when she was younger she could get kid care, after she turned 19 no aid was available,

When I asked them what is she going to do with school full time and a part time job, how will she buy her insulin?

The lady said the only way they could help her is if she got pregnant and had a kid.

My god yes something is terribly wrong with this system......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't want Obama for the same reasons I don't want McCain - they are both low life scumbags! Of course, Obama is even more of a low life drug addicted scum and his wife is an American hating beatch. That is why I wouldn't vote for him. Not because he is black.

I would vote for a black man, a woman, or even a black woman - IF they really loved this country and weren't just trying to give us more BS like the rest.

The Constitution says that no laws should be passed that suppress nor give extra benifits to Anyone. That being said, why would anyone black want to vote for him just because he was black and they thought they were gonna get anything extra or special from him being President? That's stupid. And anyone (especially a known con man) can get up in front of a crowd of people and spout off BS and talk a good show. He hasn't done anything in the Senate worth talking about so he has no record of doing anything good. I believe we lost our only real chance at ever seeing a real patriot as President and that was Ron Paul. There is no compairing Obama to Ron Paul... they can't even stand on the same stage together - because Obama doesn't come close to being able to polish Ron Pauls shoes let alone talk politics or personal integrity with him.

A lot of anti-Obama people claim that Obama is popular solely because of white You know what i say to them Fu## them. You know why because yes i do like Obama because he is black. A black man from his lower middle class background will be the president most in touch with the suffering and needs of the poor. The election of a black president will motivate the black community to make changes that it desperately needs to make. Its a lot harder to motivate terrorists around the world when a black guy is the face of the U.S. I can't imagine a effigy of Obama being burnt in Baghdad. Obama is the ONLY black in the senate. If he is elected no more blacks in the senate. Im sorry you have to be extremely intelligent to be the only person of any color to do something. Obama can help bring whites and blacks together. Obama was not born into a rich family he made his own way his story is inspiring. I like obama for his polices (nuclear proferation, ethics reform, illnois health care, stopping sale of weapons,) his skin color is ONE of the reasons I like him. Also I'm sorry after slavery, jim crow, segregation, rodney king, katrina I am rooting to see the first black president. I think its only natural to root for the first black guy with a shot at the presidency. It is certainly much better than being bitter and rooting against the guy and slandering his name by claiming all his supporters are guilty whites and only black people vote for him

There are many people voting against Obama because of his ethnicity. Your choice serves to strike a blance. More power to you.

Great logic. Why don't why just have a race war and get it over with?

While we're at it, let's get all the people with big ears to vote for Obama too.

I have a great idea.... all the candidates can just throw away their position papers and get rid of all those complicated issues on their web sites and have the same slogan....

"Trust Me Because I Look Like You"

Honest to God, this world is in deep trouble...

This is hard for me, as my sister, only a year ago, had a spinal cord injury that left her unable to walk and cognitively impaired. Before her accident, she was working 60 hours a week AND attending graduate school full time.


Your sister's ineptitude has exactly what to do with black people?

What's wrong with it?
It's worse than saying I am not voting for him because he won't wear a flag pin.

The fact that he is a son of an African Black is pretty sad.
This also says quite a bit about American Blacks.

He probably got a lot of grief from American Blacks for "not keeping it real" and now American Blacks are embracing him.

Eminently preferable to a "Don't Trust The Other Guy Because He Doesn't Look Like You" slogan, wouldn't you say?

Don't see the problem with those voters counterbalancing the voters who are opposed to seeing anyone who isn't white in the White House.

Why is this sad, and what exactly does this say about American Blacks?

Are the multitude of Mexican immigrants in America also sad?

Would you be heart broken if I told you Obama is not black?


He is as much Irish as black. I make the argument that he was brought up more Irish than black.

He had to sit in a black church in Chicago for 20 years to learn how to be black in America.

I am not faulting him for being Irish, although I know that many may.

What has he done, which is "black"?

You should not judge people on how they look, or even what they say.

The measure of a human is what they do. How they behave. I have seen enough of the others. Hillary has become overwhelmed in the delusions of her own ivory tower, and McCain wants a hundred years war on the Islamic religion.

Obama shows restraint, and courtesy to others. It may not be much, but frankly these qualitys alone outclass the opposition. We do not need leaders who are willing to throw all of us under the bus for the fulfillment of their personal objectives.

It really is time to come back to an America "By For and Of the People".
If you let fear mongers and prejudice pushers scare you away from that, you deserve the rude end which is already planned for us.

You are so wrong, Obama is more white than any other presidential candidate. Lets not for get he is in fact related to Cheney and Bush. I can't believe how many people don't do their homework on this stuff. Think about it, where did Obama come from? Who has ever heard of him before? What has he done that is notable or honorable? What are some of his flying color (no pun intended) accomplishments? He has none. He has been groomed and trained (brainwashed) by the current administration . He will only perpetuate the current problems we now face. You back somebody solely based on race? Good luck with that mentality.

Thanks bro, actually just brought him dinner. I wish the best for your sister. And it's clear this problem of reverse racism and blatant double standard is only gaining more and more steam, it will simmer like pressured steam until it blows. This is a problem that needs more attention. And these people saying another person's shoes feel different and crap, the rule applies for us aswell jerky, so by using that logic if your not white than you have no right to oppose our opinions because you don't know how it feels to wear my shoes. But lets not think on such a moronicly basic level by using such foolish justification. If you come into my house to rob me, you can give me a diatribe on how society made you this way all you want and I'll still shoot you in the head.

Who the hell isn't related to everyone else at the 9th and 11th cousin removed level. If we went back eleven generations, you'd probably be related to Obama too, how about that?

Um... no.... it's the EXACT same thing. And more importantly, there's nobody out there who's saying "Don't trust the other guy because he doesn't look like you." Who specifically, other than the stereotypes you hold in your head, are opposing anybody who's not white to be in the White House? Heck, most Republicans I know wanted to see Condi Rice run instead of McCain.

Wow I can't really believe how many people misconstrued my comments. I said that one of the reasons I like obama is because he's black. Like i said its only one reason. People like mccain cuz he's in the miltary, people may support someone because they are from the same are or go to the same collee. THese people like that candidate for a number of reasons.

I listed several policy issues and things obama accomplished that makes me support him. The fact he went to Harvard law, edited law review, worked as a community organizer, his work on healthcare in illnois and his work in the senate which include securing nuclear weapons, stopping sale of missle launchers and other small arms on the black market, ethics reform, increased government fludity, his work with mccain on a immigration bill.

I know I should'nt expect much from a bunch of conspiracy nuts, who cling to their guns and support ron paul but there is clearly sarcasm in the title of my post. One more thing whites who are constantly bit***ing about reverse racism, affirmative action, and things of that nature its just pathetic

That is exactly the reason why I am not going to vote for him. Sorry but that is the truth. I dont want a black POTUS. Simple as that. Millions and millions will vote just like me. White and hispanic. Keep your new world crap out of Texas. We dont want it.

Hello Sheeple Obama fan.

Let's break down your quote a bit for the facts relative to Obama's perceived accomplisments.

Obama attended Harvard Law

Hillary attended Yale. Most canidates have attended an Ivy League College. What makes Obama's paid trip to the Ivy League different from that of the other canidates?

Edited Harvard Law Review

Don't most Lawyers do this? Obama says "I Was A Professor Of Law" - Lie, you were a senior lecturer ON LEAVE.

In terms of the Havard Law Review, there are 121 Editors! Between 41 and 43 new editors are selected from a second year law class of 560 people every year.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff was also a Harvard Law Editor.

Community Organizer


He was hired by Jerry Kellman, a Chicago organizer, to lead the Developing Communities Project (DCP), which would target African American neighborhoods on Chicago’s South Side by working with African American churches in the area. During Obama’s time as a community organizer, Harold Washington was serving as Chicago’s first black mayor. This was a source of hope and inspiration for Obama and other blacks and progressives in the city.


Is this why Obama kept up with the Real Estate business only to later try and cheat it (His buddy Tony Rezko took the fall)?


British-Iraqi billionaire lent millions of dollars to Barack Obama's fundraiser just weeks before an imprudent land deal that has returned to haunt the presidential contender, an investigation by The Times discloses.

The money transfer raises the question of whether funds from Nadhmi Auchi, one of Britain’s wealthiest men, helped Mr. Obama buy his mock Georgian mansion in Chicago. ...


Obama as a Community Organizer, what did he do for White people??

Securing Nuclear Weapons

Obama says "I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill" - Lie, your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of your Nuclear Donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

Stopping sale of Missile Launchers on Black Market

Please site some factual evidence/content showing where this is true? Where is the proof? How many sales did he stop? How did he do it?

Ethics Reform

Do you mean by Obama not accepting Lobbyist money? Sorry to burst your bubble:


While several of Obama’s fundraisers have recent experience working as lobbyists, at least 10 other big fundraisers hold senior positions in companies that have lobbyists under contract or employed lobbyists in the last few years, according to public records. Obama is lieing to the people about not accepting lobbyist money. He indeed still is, but more indirectly
then before.

The snake pokes its head in. So it's not ok for whites to "**tch" about afirmative action and discrimination but its ok for blacks to **tch about the time when whites had special priveleges and it was ok to be racist against blacks. Hypocritical cave man, I bet you don't even use silver ware. So is it ok if one of the reasons I vote for McCain is because he is white? Are you seriously implying that a persons race should be listed as reasons to vote for someone? I don't care if you list a million reasons to vote for him, the fact that his race is an influential part of your decision is the ONLY reason I need see that we are heading into a dangerous realm. By admitting that him being black is a reason you will vote for him you are at the same time admitting that any candidate being white is a reason not to vote for him/her.

Dude your a racist tool, karma comes when you least expect it and sometimes it comes hard. You should put that pride in check before it gets you somewhere you don't want to be.

It says that it took an African Black to father a child that would grow up a possisbly be President.
It just would have meant more if an American Black had fathered Obama.

But then again the African Black didn't stick around to raise his child anyway leaving Obama to be raised by his White Mama and mostly his White Grand Parents.

So to put it mildly, if his Daddy had been around I doubt Obama would be in the position he is in now.

And yes, the influx of illegals is also sad, but at least they don't beg for money in every street corner. Not in their culture.

I like the fact that Obama is black too. That's not the ONLY reason I like him--I also like his ideas and his positions on the issues--but all else being equal his color is a plus. I just hope people do not pin too many expectations on him because he might be the first man of color to be president; we have to remember he is human and will likely make a few mistakes. I know from reading this thread that many of my white bretheren will call me a racist, but I guess they'd call me a sexist too because I like the fact that Hillary is a woman. And I really like the fact that BOTH a woman and an African American are doing so well this election cycle.
