Come on, people, stop trying to blame our racial tensions (which were here before President Obama was president) for your own hang-ups.


Pardon me, but the one who seems to have hang ups about race is Obama himself
When ever he can't handle the heat so to speak, Obama is the one that throws out the race card
All we are doing is discussing his comments

Obama likes bringing race up to shift the focus off of any current problems....which right now is the complete failure of Obamacare

And if you read most of the comments here, many people don't like him due to his incompetency, not his race
Yeah, there are a few that don't care for a black in office, but not all of us

What do you mean you don't believe Obama is really black






What am I reading holy crap I forgot how insane this place is



Related note: I find it ironic that many of the same people who make it a point that Obama is only "half black" rarely if ever think that way about any dark skinned person they encounter in their day to day life. It's only when that person is in a position of power or success that their biracial backround comes into play. Because heaven forbid the best golfer is "black", heaven forbid our President is "black".

If I remember Correctly , Mr. Obamas Momma is White . You are heading into a Gray area here with the Race Baiting . Content of his Character is the Main Debating Point when it comes to the perceptions of the American People as a Whole .

Heaven forbid you actually use that brain that was given to you.

Most people dont think anything when they see a bi racial person.

I see a bi racial person- last thing I think is "Ohhhh- only his minority side matters".


Those people that keep bringing up race all the time- are the biggest racists out there.
And it usually comes from democrats.

Hardly EVER- and I mean EVER- do I hear republicans bringing up race about anything, besides when they are trying to defend themselves from morons who keep trying to use racism as a political strategy.


Those who keep using that racist card- look at yourselves in the mirror- and tell me who the real racist is.

Because you all are really starting to get boring with that crap.

Funny how you jumped all over my post and read it in a way that offended you.



I didn't say most people think a certain way when they see a biracial person. I was much more specific then that. What I actually pointed out was that most people who stress the fact that Obama is only "half black" in conversations where his race comes up seem to have racist attitudes in other regards. This is an observation, if you have seen things differently so be it.

However, you're insane notion that the people who bring up racism are the most racist is absurd. Your assertion that Republicans (btw I, at least, was never talking in terms of political parties and view points) rarely if ever bring up race is ABSURD. Republican politicians? Fair to say they rarely bring up race because it would be political suicide. Every day Republicans? I find, the vast vast majority of Republicans in my area have racist views.


There's nothing racist about pointing out and identifying racism. That's completely illogical and shows an obvious misunderstand of what the word "racism" means.


I can go on about how I find it's generally a certain type of person who's adamant about steering conversation away from the topic of racism and is unusually insistent on the idea that its racist to point that kind of thing out, but I don't want to make too many assumptions...


Edit: The fact is this article took a race baiting tone by manipulating his quotes and the majority of responses in this thread jumped all over it. They ignored Obama's acknowledgment that just like there are people who dislike him for his skin color (and their are, can't believe I see people here DENYING it) there are also people who support him because of his skin color (very few people here are disputing that however, interesting).

I disagree completely, first off I'm not a dem. I personally think all of our politicians are bought and paid for stooges. That said I grew up in Mississippi but lived in Kansas City during Obamas first pres. Election. Almost everyone I talked to at the time ,that was voting McCain, was real quick to tell you they "weren't voting for that N!$$3". It's funny what people will say about race when your white and they trust you won't tell anyone.

So I can't imagine how ANYONE could argue the fact that there's a notable percentage of the population who hates having a black guy. If you want real proof look at the fact we look at Obama as the first black prez. Instead of the first multi racial pres. Considering the only reason we think that way is because In Americas dark ages one drop of black blood ment you were black.

I'm so tired of the right pretending that a big chunk of there base isn't a bunch of backwoods racists from a different age. Anyone who lives in the south knows better. Don't get me wrong most of the welfare queens fall on the left. But to pretend that the GOP hasn't tried to fire up there base by playing the reverse race card is just unintelligent at best. But prob just dishonest.

AE

You're talking off assumably unreliable second to third hand sources here.


I'm not saying that it's not possible, I'm just pointing out maybe you shouldn't be so adamant it's a fact.

You are right though, Maybe i shouldnt be so subjective to one view.
But seeing the pictures of little barrack are pretty convincing...his father may have been kenyan but his mother is indonesian. Then you talk to someone who validates those asumptions even more having met those people who were his asumed indonesian family.. a 70+ year old indonesian woman who isnt even interested in polotics, Idk. people lie for no reason and everything is subject too debate, GUESS we will never knowwww... Not unless we went back in time and watch him be flipppin BORN. Sheesh....

Would it really be benificient to claim barrack was Indian and black vs white/black? Or vice versa. Not really any.

You could say that a white/black would be more electable... I guess..... Except for the fact if you get caught lieing about that your political career is over. So he's .5% more electable as a white black mix and risks EVERYTHING! For that .5% electability. Common guys I know we're conspiracy people but it like my conspiracies to at least be more likely then the story they tell us... But common. Barracks base is liberals, and they don't care if your Indian and black vs. black white. Conservatives are the ones who spout about socialist, communist foriners. Liberals would elect someone who was born outta country and raised here if they thought he was best for da job. So why risk it for no tangible difference.

There are many reasons why I don't like a black president.

But the biggest problem is that is opens the door towards MORE black presidents in the future.

Which is why I support birtherism, even though its obvious Obama was born in America.

It's bloody obvious that race is a major factor in Obama's popularity in some areas and the opposite in others. To pretend otherwise is laughable. The Republican party relies on this, of course, and will continue to do so.

If the birther issue was really bs he would have issued a real birth certificate and wouldn't have sealed his records with his first act as president.
Who cares what color he is, his action speak louder than the color of his skin. He will be remembered by the lies he told, the innocent people he killed and the crimes he's committed. If the media covered what was going on in Geneva right now we would all be talking about it. High crimes of treason and a trip to the Hague will be his legacy.

He did release his real long form birth certificate.

And he never "sealed" his birth certificate.

The whole birth certificate thing is like assuming all Asian people are born in China, even though Asians were in this country since the 1800's.

Birtherism is definitely a white trash type of thing.

There are some that hate him because he is black. There are some that love him because he is black.

Race is no way can explain his DECLINING poll numbers. That is simply a sorry excuse.

What do you mean by "it opens a door for more black Presidents"?

Myself I could care less what color a man (or woman) was as long as they had the best interest of the American people at heart.

I look at what we have now compared to five years ago. I listen to the words of President Obama. It adds up to the destruction of a once great nation. is he continuing along a path set down by others? Is he following a path of his own? Is he a puppet? Is he a genius? Lots of questions left to be answered about a man that was an unknown ten years ago.

We do indeed live in interesting times.

Did you examine the Birth Certificate? So many holes that you couldn't get a drivers licenses with that forged document. The Meta data on the birth certificate he released was enough for me, the PDF file was not an original scan it had multiple layers created in Adobe, proving that the document was altered.

His First act, Executive Order 13489 signed on the first day of his presidency Jan 21st 2009.

Just a simple googling shows the EO 13489 is complete bull#.

And how are you qualified to examine a birth certificate in anyway?
