    And now the right winces when it is used. I call that poetic justice.
    Why not just call it racism? That's what it was and that's what it is.

    And when politicians use it to fire up people, to turn one group against another in order to gain political office or advantage, then these people are among the lowest of the low, and all people with any sense of decency should denounce them.

    Please demonstrate how he played the race card?
    If you don't follow US politics, why are you involved on this thread?

    Here's what he originally said, which includes comments from other CBC members.

    C'mon, Grant.

    Where in any others links you provided in post #627 quote either the President or the First Lady as making racist comments or stirring up racial hatred?

    The YouTube video of the FLOTUS only stated how the African American community would eventually "wake up", cast aside the "mental shackles of believing they are inferior" (my words, not hers) and start believing that a qualified Black man could be elected President of the United States. She wasn't playing racism. She was responding to a question asked her, specifically, if she believed African Americans would show up at the polls and put their collective voting power behind a Black president. If we, African Americans, had stayed home maybe Obama doesn't win and Michelle's word would have been validate - that African Americans continued to wear the "mental shackles". I'm proud of the fact that my people woke up on November 4, 2008 and cast their vote behind someone they should be proud of.

    The second link attributes nothing to quotes made by neither the President nor the FLOTUS.

    As for the first linked article, was what the President said true back then? Did Sen. McCain or others within the GOP use fear tactics to discredit Obama on the run-up to the 2008 Presidential election? We heard all sorts of commits made about his religious faith and his birthright. Were there racial comments coming out of the McCain camp as well? Be honest...

    Think back to Rev. Wright...ahhh!

    Oh wait, I can't say that about the esteemed Rep. Carson, to criticize him, since I am a white male and tea partier, is racist.

    Just reading that filthy dung heaps rant makes my stomach churn in disgust.
    No it isn't. I live in the south, and I know people in the Tea Party movement who would very much like to see black people hanging from trees. I don't consider them representative of the entire movement, but that element does exist in the Tea Party movement. Get over it. You can't pretend it doesn't exist just because it is inconvenient.

    I post on message boards and I know there are members there that would have sex with their dog if their dog didn't find them so displeasing. You can't pretend this isn't true because I said so.

    So I assume you hold claims that "members of the Tea Party don't want to see black people hanging from trees" to the same standards?

    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?
    Again, the same argument could have been used against the Klan. Or how about a women's group for being exclusively...women? Golf clubs use to be all male and for a time before Tiger Wood, most professional golf clubs were all White males only. So, you're argument really carries no merit here. If, however, you can point to racist or separatist aggitator activites committed by the CBC throughout its history, as I said previously, I'm 100% in your corner.

    Top comment on that video.

    Group of blacks defending their interests = ok

    Group of Mexicans defending their interests = ok

    Group of whites defending their interests = RACIST KKK NAZISWHOWANTTOKILLSIXMILLIONJE*WS!!!

    Anti-racist is just code for anti-white.
    Rest my case, glad we have racists against the wall.

    You can find a small number of people of any group that would have beliefs outside of your own. It's cheap to try and equate the beliefs of a very few with any one particular group they may hold some affiliation with.

    Now if you aren't racist but you belong to a racist group, it makes it a little more blurred.
