The reality of the 'racism' you are inquiring about will only be concealed behind the partisan rhetoric. Racism is a personal thing, like picking one's nose. To expect someone to admit to it, generally speaking, is unrealistic.

Racism is everywhere - EVERYWHERE.

The best we can do is to hack away at it's ignorant roots. Our main problem is that the best tool for that purpose was handed over to commercial interests, and I think they have done a piss poor job of anything relating to the elimination of racism - or any other 'ism' for that matter.

He's a post turtle. Flat out.


Okay, don't know what a post turtle is here, so I'm not sure if I should be offended or not.


You, you, take that back, or give it more...


This should help -

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Texas rancher, who‘s
hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a
conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to
Obama and his bid to be our President.

The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.'

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post
turtle' was.

The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you
come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post
turtle'.'

The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he
continued to explain. 'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he
doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up
there, and you just wonder what kind of person put him up there.'

What are the required qualifications for becoming president of this country? Because it seems to me that the people who have the "experience" are the ones who over time become the most fascist. John McCain is a wanna be neo con. Supporting everything the president does without question. And now we're getting TONS of news reports that the Bush admin lied and pretty much made stuff up to get us into war with Iraq. How does that fair for electability based on credentials with John McCain? Does supporting a war on lies and deceit make him more qualified than Obama?

I think one needs to ask about what the definition of "qualified" is. Is it actions based on sound judgement?(which in my opinion is what Obama did in 2002 and 2004-08), or is it beating the same drum of those who came before you?

I have no agenda, and I've been around ATS for a while. I contribute where I can. I am also an Obama supporter, and my biggest problem is having these false debates over things that are, to the scrutinizing eye, false.
I then find threads on McCain having "callously left his wife behind"
which is a damned low blow. And not needed in this election. McCain's "straight talk express" is constantly derailing nit pick from that. Leave the mans wife alone. This is dirty politics and not good for either side.

Obama has a voting record, he has a public resume, he has ties to the green agenda. Bicker over that all you'd like people.

His wife, and all that BS fox news made up about Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. It's divisive, it's a flagrant lie and it helps nothing in the end. Same goes for McCain. He has a voting record, he has a public resume, he has a long documented policy history, he has ties to the white house. Argue that. But calling him and his supporters racist is not cool. Calling out his ex-wife or his current wife like people in the media and here on ATS have is NOT COOL. We don't need this kinda crap in this election. There's too much at stake to allow this sort of crap to keep us distracted from what is really going on in the world, and in our precious country.

Thanks for throwing all white people into that big'ol pool of racists. How dare we oppose Obama on anything regarding his poor decision making and lack of experience, no we have to be racists. Oh your not implying everyone, well in general terms you are implying everyone. So America is this big bad racist country because their are a few people in the KKK, same rules can be applied to all races in this country, there are the Black Panthers and people that follow Black Liberation Theology, there are asian, black and mexican gangs, La Raza is the hispanic version of the KKK or neo nazis. But here come the black haters, I bet there are more people in this country with strong feelings of hate against white people than the other way around.

I've never seen a white person blatantly say something racist to an innocent bystander. Yet I was with an old gf in a very Mexican part of Chula Vista, CA and was yelled at by a passing car, "white people go home", one time I was in a Washington Square mall in Portland and two young black kids did the finger in the pocket thing and tried to hold me up saying, "give it up white boy, or we gonna blow your cracka ass away" ofcourse I laughed at them and they ran. Last time wasn't that long ago, I was at a grocery store and a clerk opened up and called me over, on my way this black lady dumps her cart with her 2 kids and sprints over and jumps in front of me despite that I was allready putting groceries on the belt, no one says anything to and I was like wtf is this and went off on her, she says I don't listen to white people and tells me her bf is waiting outside. Her groceries were still in the cart with her kids, I had to wait for her kid to come and hold her line than she had to go get the cart....WTF!

But the most disturbing kind of racism I've seen at my expense is from white people like the TC, not saying the TC is white but this is typical of a person with "white guilt" or something. So go on and taint the political process with this race card pulling nonsense, call out the white people so they will ever be tainted with this stigma that they quite possibly are just racists for opposing Obama. TC and people that agree, you are the reason this country is so racist except the racism is flung in the other direction.

Racism isn't as big of a deal as you think Frog in a Pan Man.
I don't like any of these fools, but we have no choice, I bet if nobody in America voted, things would still play out the same way. The media would spew there lies and fake news and who ever is decided to be president will, even if everyone in the country voted for Ron Paul, Barak would still be president.

Ya see I don't care what color someone is, I care about what they stand for, who they let influence there descisions. Barak, Hillary and McCain are all a bunch of shills, they care more about there global agenda group than this country and making the world a better place.

What it is, is that these clowns are saving there place in not bing one of us (the real patriots) when a one world government is in place, the rules will be relaxed for them, it's not about being in pwer, it's about not being the ones trampled on. That's just my personal opinion though.

Trust me though, I have no problem with having a black president, I think Bill Cosbey would be the best president ever, or maybe even Morgan Freeman, heck, I'd vote for Will Smith even.

Alrighty now I get it. I've never heard that reference, ever. I thought maybe you were accusing Me of being a "post turtle" and since I didn't know the reference, I was going get
and I'm glad I asked, because now all I'm doing is...


Yes, I can see Barak Obama was "placed there" for no good reason to the American public.

I trust politicians as far as a bunch of Florida diamond-back rattlesnakes in a baby bassinet.

Not a whole heck of a lot.

And also I think, "Its not what you know, its who you know," sums up the unlisted requirement.

The racists who are influencing this particular campaign aren't "black haters", they're the guilty white people who are supporting Obama simply because he's part black and ignoring his lack of experience, his foolish proposals, his alarming associations and his apparent stupidity, which is very evident when he's not reading from a teleprompter.

I've never seen any candidate with as many supporters who know almost nothing about his background or his stance on issues and I've never seen a politician survive so much as Obama has. Most of the media is either enamoured with the man (or maybe the idea of the man) and actively protecting him or they're afraid that they'll be accused of racism if they expose his flaws. It's sad, really.

If this guy gets elected, he'll surely make for a terrible president, and I only hope that sticks to his party and his liberal principles and not to his race, which has nothing to do with his incompetence. Future black cadidates for office should not have to pay for Obama's mistakes.

Come on. Every black person in this country is going to vote for him just for being black. How is this different than not voting for him for being black.

Racism is a two way street. I grew up in Atalanta and in my time witnessed more racism AGAINST whites than blacks.

In the end though, this country should be well beyond that. It shouldn't even be brought up.

I live in the South. I have lived there all my Life. Grew up prejudiced. Still am, not skin color though, mentality of certain people is what I am prejudiced against. Obama is not qualified to hold the office, it's that simple. I abhor his agenda,polotics,point of view,his asperations and what he stands for. As a white Missippian, I would vote for Condeleesa Rice in a heartbeat. So there goes my stereotype out the window. Our country is in deep trouble and we won't be getting out of it with the next prez no mater who it is. All liberals hear is(we need change). We do but not with Obama.

Condi= worst, vote, ever.
Why you may ask? Is it cause I hate women (which I dont')? Is it cause I hate blacks (which i don't, just look at my sig)? No, it's because she is a part of Bilderburg. You know, that evil little group that's planning world domination?

Yeah, Condi, no, and I honestly hope you were kidding, you were, right?

I know the constitutional requirements. What I want to know is how "experience" plays into this, because Mccain has the experience but not the judgement, or the presence of mind to dump a failed policy. Obama has a little experience, yet has the judgement to not pursue failed policies like the gas tax holiday. The gas tax was tried in Illinois with support from Obama, the oil companies just raised prices to offset the revenue shortfall. At that point Obama knew it was a bad idea, learn from your mistakes. McCain is still pushing for this failed policy that will do nothing to help anyone, and it may even hurt job growth by putting state and federal employees on the cutting board due to a loss of revenue. This is john mcbush/clinton initiative and it is nothing short of election pandering at a time when we need solutions to these problems. All I'm saying is that the argument for "experience" is flawed when we take a real look at what that "experience" has really done

How come the black haters? It isn't necessarily HATE; maybe it's resentment. For one thing, I'd like to see a Miss White America Contest, they can have a Miss Black America so what's the dif? I am sick to death of reverse discrimination. And dealing with STUPID people in the workplace who got the job because of their color is rough on the rest of us, we have to carry their load too. I'll tell ya what, you no-good so & so's who aim to put a black man in the highest office of this land are going to reap what you sow, but the rest of us have to reap it too dammit. I was a Clinton supporter (I admit it was slim pickins all the way around) but I will now vote McCain (gawd that hurt); anything to keep Obama out. These colored people are going to go absolutely jungle wild if it happens, as if it isn't already bad enough. And I was not raised racist; when I was growing up, black people were kind and decent, whether they were financially comfortable or didn't have a dime to their name, they treated people with respect. But that all changed in the 80's, they are like wild animals now, tbey comprise 13% of the population but commit 60% of the murders (source: Bureau of Vital Stats). Choose carefully, be prepared to reap what you sow.
