We'd probably be getting somewhere if race was a total non-issue. Whenever people start writing articles and talking about racism it only stirs further hatred from the people being labeled "racist".
Either way, you can't control what people think, if they have an inkling of racial inequality then it's ridiculous charges of racism like this that make people stoke that fire.
I would have liked to think that we're passed this whole race issue but the people who "fight racism" would be out of a job and it's in their best interests to keep the hate going.

Parents who love their kids, and raise them right, bring people into this world that can understand and laugh.
Heck, as mixed as I am, people are SHOCKED that I'm a conservative.
I just think it soooo damn funny/ironic/sad is all.
Liberals would judge ME by the colour of my skin, before asking what party affiliation I belong to.

It's funny how I never think of Obama's race when thinking about him, but am constantly reminded of race nearly every time I hear from a supporter.

yeah, and i suppose all the language being hurled at obama, has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with race..
c'mon people weren't born yesterday, maybe you personally don't see race when you see obama, but there are plenty out there that do.

With stories like this constantly barraging the uninformed drones who only read liberal rags or watch MSM news programming, we are in for some trouble. They seem to be pushing class and race warfare into the face of the nation. Like it or not. The rally was more about our troubled government that it was about Obama. Obama is just a mouthpiece for the buffoons in power on the Hill.
My local Sunday newspaper didn't even mention the DC rally until page 12 of section A. If you only read the headlines and watch MSNBC, you would never know that the rally even happened.
The race card has been played to death and we are only 8 months or so into this administration.
To the Black Reunion folks, Obama is not Black. He is Mulatto.
