    You are correct. It was a Democrat; but she didn't win the presidency.

    The news and the hype was zero emphasis on what he will do that is good for the country and 100% on his skin color.

    I love it when the righties whine about "the race card". Slavery gave us the race card. Jim Crow gave us the race card. The Klan gave us the race card. Wallace and Barnett and the rest of the racist crew gave us the race card. Lynchings, burnings, castrations and little girls getting blown up in church gave us the race card.

    And now the right winces when it is used. I call that poetic justice.

    I linked to the video on MSNBC.com. Go watch and find out for yourself what exactly was said. When you do, come back here and post it so we'll all know you're not just ignoring facts but rather you're truly engaging in the discussion.

    I'll ask the question again.

    Please demonstrate how he played the race card?

    One could have made that same argument against the Klan years ago. But let's be frank, there have been separate congressional caucuses for nearly 200 years. The only mystery about them is their makeup and what they do. Show where the CBC has conducted themselves along racial separatist or aggressive lines against White people beyond the recent comments by Rep's Carson or Waters and I'm with you on disbanning them 100%. But just so you know, I've never gotten involved with nor cared about the Congressional Black Caucus mostly because I've never viewed them as being that powerful an influence in national politics.

    What the hell are you talking about? You have to be black to be a member. We do not consider a group like the Harley owners group racist because they do not allow Honda owners in. Now, what would you consider this group if they only allowed white Harley owners?

    Would that be O.K.? People got all upset because the Boy Scouts refused to allow gay members but it's somehow O.K. to refuse to allow white or hispanic or asian members?

    Here is the fundamental problem - shared skin color = shared experience = shared positions and therefore isn't a racist reason to vote. Do you realize that this is just the other way of saying, "All Blacks/Chinese/Koreans/Mexicans/Whites are the same", i.e. racial stereotyping is valid? It is patently false. Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are white and I couldn't be more different in my beliefs, values and goals. Do Jesse Jackson and Condoleeza Rice think and vote the same?


    When you boil it down to its essence, if voting for Obama just because he's black is valid, and not racist, then it is a tacit acknowledgment that racial sterotypes are in fact true and correct, and that every other race is also free to vote on racial guidelines, since obviously a white candidate will better represent Whites, a Hispanic candidate will better represent Hispanics, etc. Further, it presupposes that a candidate of one race will favor his/her race over the others. Following this path leads to racial war with the goal of domination or elimination of other races.
