Has the Race Baiting finally stopped!

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

The catalyst? People are now looking at their first paycheck.

People who got a raise are noticing their take-home pay is less and the working poor are noticing $30 to $50 less per week in their take-home pay at a time when that much is like a swift kick in the groin.

Why? So the Party in power can then give them handouts to buy their votes so they can raise their taxes again, to handout even more too once again buy their votes. The circle of madness continues.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Forgive me, I'm not the brightest of members. Would you explain how your post connects to the idea of race baiting? Thanks.

Sure and I could have been clearer. My bad.

During the run-up to the elections if anyone intimated that the Pres was not being honest or disagreed with him in any way the "Race Baiters" came out in droves. If you simply disagreed with his political ideology, you were labeled a "Racist". Even those holding high office were participating in the Race Baiting.

Now that the pay-stubs are out for people to see that has stopped. Now that people, including the NY Times have noticed the appointments he is making do not match his rhetoric, the criticism from his supporters is growing legs and no cries of Race Baiting where they are concerned is happening.

I find it quite telling. Watch the criticism grow over the next few weeks as reality sinks in to those who are paying attention.

Dear Blaine91555,

Thanks for your kindness.

There's no way I could know the definitive answer for your question, but I believe the cries of "Racism" will not go far away, neither will they be gone for long. "Racism" is a powerful tool that has been used for decades, I don't believe that it will be discarded until something equally hateful is thought up.

Further, I think the "Urban Youth" exception will be brought into play. That's the idea that rappers and urban youth (sometimes used as an euphemism for Blacks), may use wildly offensive words that others must not for fear of being called racist.

So, The New York Times is allowed to criticize Obama, 1.) Because they're "brothers," really on the same side, and 2.) Because The Times will find a way to make his mistakes either unimportant, or forced by Republicans.

Sadly, I see "Racism" as a weapon in the arsenal being kept ready. I predict you'll see a lot of it in prepration for the 2014 elections.

With respect,

Oh yeah, it probably has stopped I think, especially if the country keeps going on it current track and / or Obama gets a third term.

Sadly, I think you are right. But perhaps as this progresses it will lessen and become more obvious just how bigoted it was all along. I'm sickened by the actions from both sides and how divided we have become.
