Originally posted by Question Fate Im just wondering, do you ever get tired of the racist drivel you spew on every thread? Not an attack, just from my pov you take that stance that every black male is out to race white women, riot and generally cause trouble. If thats how you feel, then so be it but I was just wondering.

Just like the poster that said the “girl wasn’t physically attacked”. Big deal huh? I am sure if one black girl was harassed by a white teacher and an entire class of white students that would not be a big deal either. I am sure the school counselor would advise her to “leave the class” so as to avoid “more trouble”, yup, that is just what they would say.

I heard of the Billion Dollar Bill. But can you prove it's because of a black leader?
Mugabe rose to prominence in the 1960s as the Secretary General of the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU). For many years in the '60s and '70s Mugabe was a political prisoner in Rhodesia. His goal was to replace white minority-rule with a one-party Marxist regime.
"I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal"
"my hour is not yet here"
He did it all the time.
BUT this is all off topic. The topi c is that Obama supporters racially attacked a white woman who doesn't support Obama. The posts were discussing that and how it's not an isolated incident.

As soon as all the blacks were given the land owned by white farmers they built shacks on the land and drank beer and cheap wine all day long letting the thousands of acres of land go to waste...

but all you're really proving is that African Americans still have a long way to come in terms of being treated decently and with respect for their unique heritage in our country. No matter how you feel politically, you ought to be able to empathize with them even if you think their experience in this is made insignificant by the political boogie man you fear is around the corner.

Well I cannot recall EVER seeing this level of furvor over another president elect in my lifetime.
I mean crying and carrying on and saying "this is the greatest moment ever!" and "this has changed my life!" over another president winning. There have been some popular presidents but NOTHING like this, not even close.
To be honest it scares me on a few levels, mainly because if something were to happen to this guy things would get very very ugly. There are plenty of people that would love to see America torn up, both internal and external groups, and if something happened to Obama plenty of people might use that as an excuse to go nuts.
Sen. Obama is not the Messiah for sure, but anytime, he gives you a sign of uniting races, ethnic groups, ideologies, religions and makes people feel a sense of oneness, that’s not necessarily Satan’s work, that is I believe the work of God.
Huh? I am not playing up the race issue because of my political views, if anything it is the reverse. I typically voted Democrat before Obama.
Regarding their "unique heritage" well, their "unique heritage" allows them to enjoy a standard of living that would be unthinkable if their ancestors had not been brought to the U.S. They live in a modern country with good nutrition, medical care, free education, modern conveniences and a lot of opportunity. They are one heck of a lot better off than their relatives back in the motherland.
But that is never mentioned huh? All anyone hears is how "horrible it is" for them in America. Yeah its so very very bad here, thats why Africans jump at the chance to immigrate here today.

Two quick things. This is exactly what I was trying to get across to GamerGal earlier. It seems you two are the ones focusing on the semantics. It's not that anyone is claiming leagues of high profile democratic politicians are literally calling Obama 'The Messiah.' Did it ever occur to the two of you that perhaps the 'Messiah Obama' comments were also figurative based on perceptions? I stated this very clearly until finally walking away because the point was not getting through to GG and now it apparently is escaping you as well. You two seem to be the ones intensely focused on finding examples of Obama literally being called 'Messiah' and are completely missing the forest for the trees and are ignoring the other startling examples.
Second, although it is very true the black community appears to be very supportive of Obama, they are not the only ones exhibiting this kind of behavior. So, yes- it is totally understandable why it would be so exciting to see America's first black president. However, it is going so beyond that right now.
And that is absolutely all I am going to say on this subject. It is so obvious I'm beginning to feel like I'm violating both lines of my signature. Take care.
