Morning,

And the saga continues...
Now schools have offically jumped on the "if you don't like Obama, you're a racist" train.
This is one of the most dispicable attempts at race baiting I have seen since Oprah and this one is aimed completely at the kids!
Oprah's a bloated bag of wind but she mostly preaches to adults and couch potatoes.
This is an attack on the minds of the children in some dasterdly attempt to control the unpopularity of the socialist disaster that is the Obama presidency.
Parents should be out in the streets demanding that the school board be held accountable for this travesty of truth.
I am so disgusted by this blatant attempt to poison the minds of the youth that words can barely describe my outrage.
Is there anything these people won't do to sink the ship?
Parents had better start keeping a CLOSE eye on their children from here on in and they'd better start getting involved or things like this will not only become a daily occurance, they'll be embraced as morally acceptable.
Like trying to teach masterbation to six year olds isn't messed up enough, now we have this?
I'm speechless:

“But some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president,”

I think if you take that one sentence and make a thread about it you could make it about being racist. If you take the whole page, read it and then make a thread about it in the context that it was written, I'm sure you will see that the thread will go a completely different way.


It's actually a nice "what if" story Mr. Obama is as racist as they come.

I read things like this and I'm like someone didn't study history.

www.huffingtonpost.com...



Barack Obama is widely known as the United States' first black president. But is he really the country's first African-American commander-in-chief?

Of course author Toni Morrison famously declared that former president Bill Clinton was really the nation's first black head of state, however, rumor has it there are six other former presidents who had African-American ancestry.



And here as well.

fookembug.wordpress.com...



John Hanson (a Moor) was actually the 1st President of the United States, he served from 1781 – 1782 and he was black. The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land).

Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress.

As President, Hanson ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as removal of all foreign flags. He established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents since have been required to use on all Official Documents. He declared that the 4th Thursday of every November to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today. Even though elected, one variable that was never thought through was that America was not going to accept a Black President during the heart of the enslavement period. Enter George Washington.

All I can say is that I teared up as I watched that first inauguration. Ok actually to tell the truth I cried.
I was so happy.

This was coming off a bad relationship with Bush for 8 years. I felt like America was ready to come back. I liked the 90s haha but anyway I could not have been happier that Obama was elected. I was even excited that he was half black thinking how this would go further to help bring more people together...


Now I am one of those people who must be racist because I have nothing but disdain for this presidency. (Not so much the man, but what the man does)
When I ride the bus on the way to work I hear a lot of black people who must also now be racist against black people because they feel like they were lied to.


There is nothing that makes me angrier than mind control for kids.

Back in the day I was taught that being racist meant that you hated all the people in a certain race. Now it's racist to hate ONE guy who is Half white?!?

It comes as a shock to you that there many people here in the states that won't vote for a black candidate? Do you even live in America? Home to groups like the KKK and there are over 65 known white supremest groups here in the states good luck getting them to vote for a black candidate.

Those people don't make up the majority of white folks in this country. To even insinuate that they do, is racist in itself.

Not me. Through 2008 I kept asking people what Obama stood for, because I certainly couldn't figure it out from his speeches. The only answer I could come up with was "Hope and Change" (well aside from black people who usually would dance around their reasons for voting for Obama before I'd get tired of hearing that and just sum it up and say "It's because he's black isn't it?" which they'd agree with) I wondered how Hope and Change (and a person's skin color) was going to just magically make everything better. I guess I'm just a racist for trying to look at a candidate's stance as opposed to just listening to his feel good speeches. Though I wonder, since I didn't support McCain either, what that makes me?

Obama isn't racist, he's classist. Honestly, what is he doing for black people, if he were to consider them 'his kind?'

They are most definitely not 'his kind.' His kind transcends race and he considers 'his kind' the people who belong to the class of society that he does.

Under his reign, the poor and middle class have shifted lower than they've been since the depression. Poor black people in this country are more disenfranchised, have less opportunity, and are more dependent on the state than before.

And now food stamp cuts.

It is much easier for the rich to get richer now than before, and much more difficult for the lower classes to lift themselves to a better life. Obama does not hate white people, if he hates anyone, he hates black people. Unless they're wealthy, then they're alright.

Well, as a white man, I am very offended by someone making such racist assumptions and speaking for me and my entire 'people' (as that suggests we must be). Obama also isn't Black. He's Mulatto to use the proper term for it. 50/50 White by mother and Black by father. So which half was I supposed to be more offended by?

Funny... I've hoped I'd have the opportunity to vote for some other Black men in the past who were nothing like 50/50 in racial identity. Colin Powell comes to mind, although more recent things from him make me glad I didn't afterall. Allen West would still have my vote if he ran. The man has fire and guts and sometimes, that's enough. I'm willing to see by giving him a shot if he'd come up to the final choice.

Is it so tough for some to see just under 50% of this nation, as it happened in 2008, is NOT of the same political persuasion as Obama is represented by and figuratively leads as President?

(Many of us have moved past the games of right and left entirely, but the majority of the nation is what this is talking about...not the exceptions..and "Whites" aren't some hive minded borg, voting as a racist bunch)

Oh don' get me wrong I didn't believe a word out of his mouth. What I did believe was that a lot of people would believe. I thought people would snap out of the post 9/11 america is gone blues and start grassroots types of efforts to take back control of the government.

Basically I thought there would be unintended consequences for the lies the elite were selling us.
That's all

Really, it is genius, on the part of those who want to keep the race war going strong.

After all, who is the most colorblind of any group of people?

Children.

As a parent (or grandparent) you have to be vigilant. You have to be ready to deal with the crap they teach kids today... they are seen as political pawns being programmed for tomorrow.

When they come home and report things like this, you have to be ready to shut it down and then, have the guts to go to the school and tell them that such teaching is unacceptable.

You'll get bad looks and all kinds of people knocking on your door. You just require the same of them that they do you when entering the school; a full search for anything unacceptable. Most of them can't deal with that and will leave your doorstep because they see themselves above the same rules they expect you to bow down to.

Oh look! It's another "white people are under attack" thread.



"The country's history of slavery had left the nation in pain he said. Black people and white people are too often angry with one another. All people were going to have to work together to solve the country's problems. Only in the that way could Americans make a more perfect United States."


This is truly HORRIFIC. I for one am going to march right out and refuse to be united with anyone.

Actually, who wrote this crap?


. But white voters


Way to start a simple sentence with a coordinating conjunction!

Calm down folks. Nobody is going to force you to watch Tyler Perry movies and put hot sauce on your KFC if you don't want to.

According to the scholars and wiccans at wiccanpedia John Hanson was English, with maybe some French or Swedish thrown in. There was an African elected official with the same name who was African, but that's as close as America's John Hanson came to being black. His Wikipedia page

en.wikipedia.org...

and also check out the talk page which has a little more data.

But people insist on shutting there minds off and saying that he hates white people, based on the Trayvon Martin case and the under reporting of black on white crime. They can't see that this is his administrations subversive techniques of further putting everyone, especially blacks, into a deeper psychological, social, and financial hole than we already are in this country.

Thank you for opening your brain, and stating the obvious mon1k3r.

The thing I find most interesting about the whole race game is that it has double standards. If I said that all blacks should get 1 acre of land and a new car I would be hailed as a hero. If I said that blacks shouldn't be allowed to own a car I would be a racist singling them out because of the color of their skin. The fact of the matter is that both scenarios I provided are racist based on the color of someones skin color. Is it OK to be racist if you are doing something "good" for a certain ethnic group

Read in context, the way that it is couched is generalized. It says "some", and then does not clarify the "some", (which you have clarified and which is true enough, there are such groups in this country). However, this text book goes blithely on tacitly lumping all whites with the "some". This is a propagandist, bigoted blurb that is either cunningly or completely idiotically placed in a child's textbook. It is deplorable.

Focusing on a few outlying groups with some disgusting ideology and implicating them with the ideology of an entire culture is disingenuous and misleading. Although, you yourself are clearly no stranger to this tactic. Sure, there are white supremacists out there, and most whites think they are violent, insane, stupid or some combination of the three. Flip side goes for black supremacists and blacks. Fringe groups are fringe groups and should remain in that context, which means not in a text book for children unless that text is specifically addressing radical ideologies.
