What's with this racist rhetoric? This BS may have worked with previous generations, but with the new generation this does not compute. Anybody who utilizes racism, hatred, insults and any other brainless attacks has no credibility. Come on America, you're better than that!


One would think. Perhaps the market will determine it's not a positive thing.

Seems advertisers are running away like GB is a leper.

We shall see how the market makes its judgment on racism.

They are just trying to take Glen Beck down because they fear him for his intense efforts to save all of us from the PTB by giving us the TRUTH!

Some Facts to Ponder.


Fox News' Glenn Beck strikes ratings gold by challenging Barack Obama
His show is averaging 2.2 million viewers, a remarkable amount for an afternoon time slot. 'I look at the ratings every day shocked,' he says.


Some More.


Glenn Beck has been a ratings hit for Fox News, even out-drawing Sean Hannity's huge numbers recently. And now, the Huffington Post has learned, there will be twice as much of him on the network.


Controversy pays. People like Beck are entertainers first, commentators second.

One thing I've always found odd is often people don't know the difference between opinion and editorial people and news reporters. Or is it they don't want to know?

Both the Left and the Right are littered with some of the most insane commentators imaginable.

All the MSM does is put out information. People who get all up in arms about it are just lying for attention. Gossiping because they enjoy tearing others down to make themselves feel bigger. Both side need to grow up.

Such a big deal was made because he was black.

He reaped the rewards of his color. Do you realize how many black baseball players were passed over before Jackie Robinson was chosen to be the first? He had to set the example, he had to have the utmost of character. Because if Jackie Robinson failed it might have been a long time before someone else got the chance.

Obama had the chance to set a great example for his successors, and he blew it.

So one day when their is another viable black candidate running for the presidency then he is going to have to suffer the consequences of Obama's actions. T

I get exactly what your saying and it's plane prejudiced, and maybe even racist. This isn't the 1940's anymore, But I guess some will think with that mentality. Like I said.

The first to do anything has a huge burden to carry.

George Washington
Neil Armstrong
Sandra Day O'Conner
Thourgood Marshall
Jackie Robinson

This is right off the top of my head. These people were selected as the first because of their character and previous acheivements.

Obama was selected solely based on the color of his skin, if a white Democrat with the same qualifications attempted a run like he did, he would have been laughed out of town. He was a community organizer for crying out loud!

Blacks had a field day the last election, they had excitement and "hope" for "change", and they didn't get it...next election for them will be...been there done that. The same goes for the "white guilt" voters....been there done that.

I hate comment like that, the very undertone is horrible... why?

because people who say Black's or White's are as dumb as the people who wish to keep you apart.

Let me point out something very important... we are the HUMAN race...

We have no different race of people we have only ONE.

its like Money... Money is ONE thing but has different Value ...

So is a WHITE person MORE human than a BLACK person? is the DOLLA any more less "usefull" in its Method than the Euro?

I hope you get my point... Biggorty comes in many forms and normaly comes with stupidity and a lack of education "and an open mind"

I don't see anything really racist in what he said. Its just an opinion. Although I completely disagree with it. And what exactly is white culture? I'm half black and half white and I don't really know what the modern day culture is for either side... everything is blended together nowadays. Like for instance I have some black friends that do lots of things that would be considered "white culture" I guess and I have many white friends who are into things considered "black culture" (and by culture I'm talking about music, movies, books and stuff like that). There isn't really any definitive "culture" thats related to race atleast in the US there isnt as far as I can see. Maybe in like europe or africa, but not here. Or maybe my definition of culture just is different than this guys. OR maybe I'm analyzing this to much, which I think just may be the case, lol.

And to the guy that said "blacks had a field day this election"... what does even mean? Are you saying we all support Obama? Because thats not the truth at all,I and NO ONE I know out of about 100 people voted for Obama. There is a HUGE amount of black people who don't like Obama. We aren't idiots and we see right through him. Also all of us aren't liberal, I and most my friends consider ourselves conservative. So you aren't blaming Obama winning on us, hell no! People from all races, colors and social classes voted for him. It was also all the young people that voted that got him the election. And BTW by saying I am conservative doesn't mean I supported bush or voted for mccain, I think they are all idiots. I just have a lotof conservative views but I in no way support most conservative politicians. You are a blind sheep if you do. I and most people I know who are black would love to have a black president, as long as hes a man of the people, which Obama isnt. So please don't assume all blacks are happy to have this man in the white house. You making that comment proves to me that you don't know a single black person in person, you just form all your views of us from crap on TV (which are all stupid stereotypes, btw).

I can understand what you are getting at and can see resentment in your very words -

But pay attention to the bigger picture here my friend being white or black or any other random skin tone is what?

the same as the colour of you eye

shall we argue about that also? i think not.. you see the powers that be have one mind set.. and that is to keep you all apart with lies and hate while they use you as a slave..

do you got work for you or them? why do you bitch and whine ? is it you or them?

understand something.. very very rich men who have no need for money because they print it run our little planet

and it dont matter if hes black white all that matters is that you are brain washed into the HYPE of the system.

get educated my friend and wake up to the lie you call Reality....

Who said a black person can't be considered racist? I've known some black guys who are racist and I think they are idiots, just like white racists. We don't need racism in this day and age. And also for everyones info most black people don't call ourselves african american lol. We call ourselves black. And a lot of white people seem to assume all black people support people like Jesse Jackson and people like that, when in reality a lot of black people can't stand those guys at all! We think people like that enforce the stereotype that all black people blame everything on race and racism. Which isn't the case for most people. We aren't living in the 50s anymore, me and many of my friends came from a ultra poor area and got off our asses and worked and got outta there. No racism held us back.

I know I am just ranting but I just wanted to say there is A LOT of black people who think its stupid to pull the race card over everything. The whole professor Gates ordeal recently is a example of that. Its actally kind of EMBARASSING to some of us when people pull the race card over everything. The reason it pisses us off is because there is some REAL racism there in the world, and the people who yell racism at everythng make the people with real racial profiling cases look like idiots.

Also a lot of white people seem to use this to justify being racist they say stuff like "well black guys say anti white things and they aren't called racists", when in reality these black guys ARE racist. Imo any racist no matter what color is a stupidass and needs to grow up and get their brain out of the dark ages.

lol sorry for ranting.

I have been called names be for in my life "go back to were you come from" and so forth.. but were is it i am meant to go back to?

we ALL came from the same place did we not? or did got make adam and eve one was black one was white??

Do you see how stupid this argument is about culture? what is culture? what defines the word? only actions and miss interpretations of such ..

As you pointed out OUR world has changed WAY beyond anything we seen 50-60 years ago....

Let me show you culture for modern day man

Pop idol.. computers, Moblie phones. Music, new episode of 24 .. whats the latest in fashion

and do you know one thing they all have in common? MONEY POWER AND WANTING

You see.. the world is not run by GOD its run by MAN ... the sooner you take a look in that mirror the better it will be..

aint no one coming to save the "human race" the only people who can save this crap is US... but thats the point is it not? give the people hope "put a black face on it" scam the people as always let them think about bull when really they just want to keep the game going..

we use money as a way to trade goods for profit

WE SCAM each other EVERY DAY ... tell me something i do not understand in this regard please?

or then i could wait for the son of god and rapture and all that freaky stuff...



Glen beck is a pawn and a tool and just like the rest of the people who sit on tv chatting bull.... will use propoganda to brain wash you into something thats been a lie since the time of god knows when...


I see so many posts on here about all kinda pointless crap.. it is pointless..

really it is.. and the sad fact is YOU know it is... but im the one saying it NOT you

Yeah I pretty much agree with all that. Thats what I was trying to say there isnt really any "cultures" as far as cultures around race or color. In like tribes and stuff there is but not in most the world. And as far as the color/race thing I usually don't refer to myself as either color but for the sake of argument on websites like this sometimes I will refer to myself as black or white, because I am both.

Another thing I find kind of funny is everyone on this site talks about not following mainstream media and stuff but then when someone on mainstream media who is on their side does something all of a sudden they all agree with him. That didn't really explain what I was thinking but I'm sure you know what I mean.

Anyways its late I gotta get off this damn website!! lol

Peace

You know that song that goes "Women seem wicked, when you're unwanted". There's a huge truth to that.


Excellent reference from Jim Morrison, and to a very good point.

My favorite experience I ever had was in Bismarck North Dakota... I had Mongolian BBQ there and the as I thanked the Asian Chef who prepared it for me he smiled at me and said "That's what I like to do Don't ya know"... As if he just stepped out of the movie Fargo.

It blew me away because, as I mentioned, it was in complete contrast with my own prejudices and assumptions.


I had an Indian(eastern) boyfriend once who spoke like a surfer. It always threw people off.

What people don't realize or forget is the Chinese have a long history with us. They helped us settle the wild west. They were considred second rate citizens(as usual) and were not involved in much history.

When you visit historic towns, they will tell you, the population was such and such at the time, but we think it was this much with the Chinese, but they were not included with the numbers.

Tombstone was considered a large town for the time, funny as that sounds. It has a population of 15k, but they said they think it was actualy more like 30,000 with the Chinese.
