Come on now. You know half of these comments are taken out of context just like Andrew E. Wiggin's anti-McCain thread.
For example, the video has this from Obama's Dreams of My Father

What is this really talking about? Who's the speaker at this point? It's no secret that whites and blacks didn't get along very well in the
mid-1900s. Is that time-frame part of the context? We have no idea.
And although I don't agree with ANY type of reparations (for slavery, racism, segregation, or whatever), there's no doubt that whites didn't much
like blacks and did cause them a lot of trouble.
Context is everything, even if the subject is extreme and the views radical.
