Excellent post OP.

Its sad listening to these comments about Obama but it's exactly as the powers to be want it and that is and always has been to keep us all divided. It's a diversionary tactic to keep us from addressing the real issues at hand, that they're primarily responsible for such as :

* Our Economy and economic future
* The creation of domestic jobs to aid working class Americans.
* Educational competitiveness here and abroad to help secure our future by educating our children.

I originally come from Ohio and I know these people well. They are very representative of most if not all of rural America. They're not bad at all but they are, as we all are, products of our society. In their case, a rural, primarily segregated society. Most have never ventured far from where they have lived most of their lives and their view of the outside world is primarily shaped by what they're fed by the MSM, which is fear. Fear of the unknown.

The US Military was segregated until 1949 . Once the military became integrated and military people of all ethnicities began working along side one another they all had something in common, and that was simply, a job to do.

Perhaps one day we'll come to that realization... and leave the baggage behind, for we've all a job to do as Americans, irregardless or whether our name is Obama or O'Reilly. It doesn't really matter, because we're all Americans.

Geez I didn't expect that... but then again ignorance is bliss apparently because all these people seem to be complete bafoons. If Obama isn't elected and this is the major reason I may become racist against white people and I'm whiter then a full moon. I may have to dye my skin if michael did it I can too!

And yes if there is a video of any Obama supporters saying they're not voting for McCain because he's white I'd love to see it, cause frankly I watch a whole lotta CNN (pro DEM) and I've never seen anything like that.

Also hopefully the thought from the other 50% of americans that McCain is too Old and that he will probably die within his first 4 years will off set these racist bigots.

You aren't looking hard enough. There is PLENTY of racism in the Obama supports coming from black people, making statements about how they are voting for Obama because he is black and taking racist shots at white folks.

How about Florida Representative Alcee Hastings - a CONGRESSMAN:

If that isn't enough for you - read this story on James T. Harris - a black man who openly supported McCain at a televised rally and then became the "most despised black man in the African American community" overnight.

Here's video of him at the rally:

And finally, there's this video on racism in African American culture. It exists, people. If you're denying it, you're just turning a blind eye to it.

Here goes the left vs right in-fighting again.

Wonder why your country is going down the drain? Because you spend so much time arguing with each other about who can be more underhanded that you ignore the big issues.

They divide you, and then they conquer you.


If you want change in your country, do away with the system. Any President you elect will be controlled by the same puppeteers that brought you Bush, Clinton and Bush Jr. Probably many presidents before them also.

Stand up and take ownership of your country. Show them that their system is no longer acceptable.

If you elect McCain or Obama, your country WILL continue to degenerate.

Really?? Where do you live? where do you hang out?...I mean, really???

Do you know what group of people hold most of the wealth in the world?
Def. not black people!

Do you know how black people came to this country, the Americas and the Caribbean?
Do you know how this country was built?

It just happen to happen that white people always had the means to travel around and wiped off an entire Island of its people, and take all the gold and bring it back to the white kings and queens.

Yes, we have come a long, long way and MANY white people don't behave or see racial differences as back in the days but, how dare you say that black people don't want to be Doctors, dentist and so, and they just want to be rappers, singers and sport stars? How dare you imply that?

I guess all black people are rappers or have the gang mentality, so you say; or all black people are good at sports.

I have black friends that make about 4 mils dollars a year because they went to school, but it wasn't easy for them. They encountered MANY racial obstacles.

Do you know the term 'old money'?

how many black people can say they are wealthy because of old money, and how many whites can say that?

Please, I know you are voicing your opinion but don't box people in, don't generalize and best of all, don't fall in the same category of those people(black,white,blue,red) that stereotype every one.

Edit to add: One more thing. Just Google Black professionals and you will find an infinity of them.
You have never heard of a black person wanting to be a doctor or a dentist, how about a black person wanting to be a PRESIDENT?

I think what we are witnessing is the "perfect storm". Americans are already hurting because of gas prices, stock market tumbles, dishonest government, mortgage failures, etc....I could go on and on. The sad thing that this presidential campaign has done is prove that racism and sexism are alive and well in the old US of A in 2008. My concern is what will happen either way the election goes. People are fuming so badly over things that are out of their control in this country, I am afraid that one "emotional" hit to anyone (think of how emotionally attached people are getting in this election, from BOTH sides) could really start a civil war....then comes martial law, and God knows what else. Another thing, don't be downing Christians as a whole.....I am a VERY spiritual person (not religious) and it's hard not to see the state of our world today and not believe Revelations.....the church is dying, and taking it's members with it. That's why you see "Christians" acting like that.

McCain has created a monster!

How? If anybody created a monster it is Obama. Did Obama not tell his supporters to get in people faces? Did Obama not say people cling to guns and religions? Did Obama not say he didn't look like the people on the dollar bills? Who is the one who is always trying to invoke race? Obama and the Democrats. What did Murtha say about his constituients? Then Obama supporters open up threads like this and use garbage like the one on the video to portray McCain in the same light. Tell Obama to go to Comptonand give one of his rallies. You will see the same ignorant fools like the one in the video. The only difference will be skin color.

I mean, it's no doubt those are some ignorant people. But it just goes to show how you can go to any event, highlight a few people of your choice as a way of painting everyone a certain way. I'm sure there was atleast 1 person who didn't act like that.

And not to mention the kinds of people who think the best way to do things is to join up with a side, then make the side look bad.

It's the same old song and dance. That is what you call propaganda. To not point it out, and to spread the video is to spread ignorance, not deny it.

I just wanted to quote this nugget of gold to remind everybody to be always thinking critically.

Well done.

What are you going to call me next, ignorant? See? Like their chosen one they ALWAYS go with the personal attack route. I'm talking about the second video. One of the interviewee clearly said ACORN. The first video is clearly BIASED "find the dullest tool in the shed and stereotype them with ALL of the rest of em. Typical smear campaign.

Answer to your first question; I only know you by what you write. Read that as you will.

And I doubt if any of these well informed citizens could describe to you what ACORN is if it fell out of an Oak Tree and hit them in the head. Just another term they picked up mixed in with terrorist, Muslim, paint the White House black.......

Obviously you failed to get the point. Which is...

POOR blacks aren't any worse off TODAY than anyone else EVEN poor whites.

ALL white people do not come from OLD MONEY.


Oh... and I didn't stereotype anyone. I simply stated my personal experiences.

And I never said all black people are or aren't anything.

I am posting this to promote my belief, that a majority of the middle americans have bitten hook, line, and sinker the anti obama rhetoric.

I send it because I believe it conviction and fight. I am not happy with EITHER candidate. But I am scared to death to have Obama in the White House. He's gonna bring change alright, and we are gonna lose our rights in the process. I was gung ho for him in the beginning, actually up until about a month or so ago. I believe he is a undercover sleeper cell muslim that is gonna turn our nation into a socialist nation. You cannot explain away every radical person he is connected with. And I am a christian, homeschool mom, who wants freedom to choose what I do with my children, I do not want the government to decide for me. Our country is in a black hole with debt, and he wants to make THAT government bigger by spending more to "help" out the down and outer families in America. I am one of those "middle class", and I don't want any handouts from a government who can't even pay their own bills. That is just SOME of the reason's I do not want Obama.


Fears that may be justified. Is is just a coincidence that we now have a guy with a Muslim name running for office after 9/11? I do not want to take that chance.

I also know what Obama is going to do for sure when he gets in office and that was what he said to Joe the so-called plumber. Give money to people who don't deserve it, Dem's are always ready to hand out huge welfare checks. Most of the reason why Freddy and Fannie went belly up.

Imagine what a black community organizer would do. Say goodbye to your hard earned money because its going to the worthless and lazy. At least Bush gave it to the rich business owners who had a chance to spread the wealth.

Is it any shocker the F.B.I found that the whole kill Obama thing was a lie?

I'm sorry. I was going to say something witty in response to your post but I can't bring myself to do it.

Nope, started to do it again.

You weren't in the video by any chance were you? Some of the examples you just gave are what this post is all about.

Dammit. Did it anyway. $%#@!(*&^

That's it, I can't seem to quit throwing up a little in my mouth after some of the posts on this topic.
I'm off to talk about aliens for awhile until my head clears.
Have fun spewing and supporting everything the video was about.
God, I can't wait for this crap to be over, all though given the things I've read lately I doubt very much if it ever will.

"A lot of people have forgot about 9/11..."

That line just made me cringe. To think people are this moronic. It makes me humiliated to be an American citizen. It is just extremely sad. When has Obama ever stated he hate's white people? And the last time I checked, this country has freedom of religion, so it shouldn't matter if he's a Christian, an Atheist, or a Muslim. That means that people want our government's actions influenced by their belief system, and we just can't have that...

I always like it when somebody says something that I totally agree with. That's why I'm completely non-partisan. All this left vs. right is killing us as a nation, and has been for a very long time and i get the feeling that it only gets worse over time.

Whatever happened to just loving each other?

These are the exact retarded sheep that have kept us in a false war and have let our economy fall into the hands of corrupt bankers and lobbyists.

Their drawl explains pretty much everything, slow to the process of critical thinking. Thank goodness the majority of them live in the woods and in the pastures. One good flood is all it takes Lord.

Where do these people get the idea Obama is a Muslim? What in the heck brainwashed these people. These people are still hung up on the color of skin.

Just goes to show that the back hills and roads in our Nation are slow to evolve and most likely never will. Pretty sad! It's still the 1950's there I guess.

It's ok. I know it isn't your fault that you can't handle the truth.. I am sure you can blame it on somebody. Fact of the matter is that at every given opportunity democrats have tried to bran all Republics as racist and it just isn't the case. you will find racist in both parties and in all colors. I have seen good ATS members on this site get branded that label for merely disagreeing with Obama on the issues. His damn color has nothing to do with it. He is an American who is running for the highest office and some people disagree with Obama. That doesn't make them racist. On the other hand, people are trying to make Reps look bad for the comments or ignorance of a few. It is a two way street but dems try to portay it as one way.

waiting for your next witty remark....

Exactly, i believe it was Adolf Hilter that said,

"It is fortunate for those in power that the masses do not think"
