Who was Obama talking about when he said that? Who was Malcolm X talking about? just answer that question.

Is it at all possible that a quote can be used in more than one context??

When Malcolm X said it..........blacks could not use a drinking fountain or bathroom that was designated for whites. Segregation directly stemmed from white males. Reason to be mad???? Sure.
When Obama said the quote.....it was in a context of the Rovian political trickery that is the predominant way the right wages their campaigns now. How is this even remotely related to race???

I bet you are equally OUTRAGED that Sarah Palin used a quote from a Nazi sympathizer in her convention speech!



" ... In her convention speech ... Sarah Palin quoted an unidentified “writer” who extolled the virtues of small-town America: “We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity.” (9/3/08) The unidentified writer was Westbrook Pegler (1894-1969), the ultraconservative newspaper columnist whose widely syndicated columns (at its peak, 200 newspapers and 12 million readers) targeted the New Deal establishment, labor leaders, intellectuals, homosexuals, Jews, and poets. ... "


Wanna see his racism??? I don't think Joe the Plumber would condone it....



In 1963, less than 3 months after Martin Luther King Jr., delivered his famous “I Have a Dream Speech,” he wrote in a column, “[It is] clearly the bounden duty of all intelligent Americans to proclaim and practice bigotry.”


Still want to continue down this road?

See, we can all play this guilt by association game. We can all play the semantics game.....until the end of time. But, what I would be more concerned with is the fact that your candidate is being left far behind in the polls....with two weeks left.....and you guys don't want to talk about the issues.

Semantics.

Ugh......

#1. Its not a hidden message, its plain as day.
#2: People can dislike Obama as president for variety of reasons, that have nothing to do with skin color.
#3: You are not the lone non-racist in a sea of white racists.
#4. Stop falling back on white guilt when you don't have an argument.

Oh yeah, Obama is just dying to talk about foreign policy issues! All those times it came up in debates and all the tough questions asked of him by the media. Oh wait, none of that has ever happened!



bet you are equally OUTRAGED


I'm not outraged. I'm just backing up the OPs assertion that this is race baiting. It clearly is.

McCain's campaign. McCain and his campaign manager and the meaningless, misleading attacks on Obama's character. Did you see the video?

Here:





Who was Malcolm X talking about?


The white man. About 45 years ago. In the 60s. At the height of the civil rights turmoil.

Any more questions?

The only race baiting

IS

the OP.

This is another NON-ISSUE ISSUE. It's OBVIOUSLY NOT GOING TO WORK.

I would....if I were McCain (or his supporters).....try another strategy (er....tactic.).

My thoughts exactly. And did you notice that Reverend Wright is sneaking back into the conversations!
By the OP!
It's McCain's next step after the "socialist" mantra has outworn its welcome.

Mark my words. Sarah is going to start talking about Wright in the next week or so... If not directly, he will be alluded to.

When hateful half-truths are all you got.....

Might as well go with it....


It's just not productive for them.....and they don't get it.

That just so happen to check out and have plenty of credence behind them.

This guy is much slicker than Willie.
He prepares and conveniently chooses his words very carefully.

The only thing I am pointing out here is a repeated pattern.
He is very sneaky and this sneak factor is not something he acquired overnight.

Remember, his "lipstick" comment, you know who that was directed at.
Now he makes "bamboozled" comment, you know who that is directed at.

Sure these comments may be petty but there is power in words.

He is an expert at using psychological projection as his defense mechanism, yet his followers are so hungover from the KoolAid to even notice.

In the court of public opinion, everytime Obama encounters a bump in the road in the form of "evidence" that questions his judgement and character, his supporters move to "strike it from the record" and the MSM quickly come back with a big resounding "SUSTAINED".

Wake up folks, the only ones being "bamboozled" are his supporters!

Wow... It's weird to see how out of touch people are with history. Looking back, it's easy to call Malcolm X a bad man. Not everyone can practice extreme restraint like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It just doesn't happen.

Not everyone has the patience of John Lennon or Ben Franklin. Malcolm X was racist towards whites, but he wasn't racist towards whites because they were lazy, stupid, or some other misguided theory. He was racist towards whites because they murdered black people for being black. Because they wouldn't hire him or let him drink out of the same water fountain.

It sucks that he felt he needed to go to those extremes to get the job done, but he did. That doesn't make him evil anymore than Harry Truman for dropping the atomic bomb on the Japanese (lol I said pearl harbor and had to edit it).

Just doing what he thought he needed to do for the greater good. It's different times, different reasons.

 


Even then, Malcolm X's intentions and morals are a whole separate debate. Are you guys really getting this desperate?

You'll participate in anything as long as it is anti-Obama, huh? Why don't you try being pro-McCain, or pro-Nadar? At least then you'll be doing something productive.

I'm just wondering because I don't see the motives behind it all. Is it really that gratifying to drag someone's name through the mud? Don't you find it a coincidence that you think everyone running for your party is great and everyone else is a dirty liar who will ruin the country?

Alxandro, Malcom X, wether you like it or not, was a great leader of men. To connect the speach of an african american with whatever connotation you connect, simply because he is black, is to lack an understanding of American history.

Hmmm, the same "folks" having the same arguments about the same nonsense every day. Yep, its election time
Break out the hip waders and don't light any matches, its gettin smelly out there. Right Wingers and Left Wingers hot air smells of the same methane. Whatever you do, don't discuss the issues and Candidates stances on them! No, don't do that! It is so much more fun to vote based on hate.

Go ahead and cheat while your at it. Vote twice, vote often and use many names. Stuff them ballot boxes, rig them machines, you know you want to. Neighbor votin for the wrong guy? Cut his gas line so he can't vote. Wife got the hots for the wrong Candidate? Slip her a box of Ex-Lax on election day. People up the street got the wrong bumper sticker on their car? Spray paint the whole damn car, that will fix them.

Then, and this is the most important of all, when you do elect somebody, do anything you can to undermine their efforts so you can argue some more. Remember, if all is well and nothing is going wrong, invent something! We can not afford to work together toward a better future, that sort of nonsense is not to be tolerated.

Toward the end of Malcolm life he realized the error of his ways. This is one of the reason he was killed. They kept him alive when he was dividing the county but as soon as he went to mecca and saw all colors under Islam he renounced the Nation of Islam.

A sad but accurate portrayal of life in a country hellbent on self-destruction. And on repeating history's same old mistakes.

The only thing these two men have in common is the light brown skin in which they share. Malcolm died for his belief in change, while Obama is being paid to act like he's aiming for change. Worlds apart.

This is sickening.

1 - You, or any other American voter, do not choose your president.
2 - Race is still in an issue in today's society, unfortunately.
3 - Racism will end when people stop talking about it.
4 - Division is a tried and true method used to keep people down while those in real power STAY in real power.
5 - I'm wasting my time because in today's society no one can be bothered with fixing it in between posting hateful ATS messages or checking their e-mail
6 - My country is the world and my religion is to do good.
7 - I stole 6 but it still counts.

THIS JUST IN! PALIN QUOTED A WHITE WOMAN! It was a democrat under the Clinton Administration too. I guess Palin only supports women because she quoted a woman. You Republicans need to all move to that river in the movie Deliverance and listen to your banjo music. The world has left the days of segregation and racism and you seemed to be left behind.

The truth is that they are all dirty liars.
The problem I have is that HIS followers actually believe he is the exception.
Nothing can be farther from the truth because he is, after all, a Chicago politician.

All I am trying to do is snap a little sense up side their heads, but it may be too late because of the nation-wide, massive KoolAid overdose.
