    Can you actually point to any element of the campaign that in any way implies that race is the only factor in success? That would, of course, be totally insane for anybody to claim that, so that is quite an extraordinary claim you're making. So, forgive me if I would like to see some support for your assertion.
    The entire ad makes the implication. This is an advertisement, not a master's thesis. It punches a single idea to the viewer, to wit, that white people are innately privileged over non-whites due merely to their being white. The ad does not delve into any specifics regarding socioeconomic class, nor does it imply that race is NOT the only factor for success. What it does, quite recklessly, irresponsibly, and insidiously is suggest that whites--ALL WHITES--live in a privileged caste where they are "lucky they don't get stared at every single time they walk into a room" and automatically "get better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance because of the color of their skin." This is racist horsesh*t!


    Ok, so you're going to pretend that you don't understand how freaking out that the black people are going to be stired up into some kind of race rage and start attacking white people is white supremacist rhetoric? Uh...
    Wake up, guy. Do you not pay any attention to the news? Gangs of black youths have been notorious in recent years for roaming about cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, Milwaukee, etc. and randomly beating up white people for no apparent reason. Obviously, something is driving this behavior. Could it be toxic racial disinformation like that presented by this ad? Most likely. There is definitely some cognitive misconception behind such pointless and unprovoked aggression. But of course, one must first pull his head out of the sand and admit that such bizarre behavior is, in fact, occurring before one can delve into the matter as to why.

    As a society, we beat this disgusting attitude of yours back into a corner decades ago. We've had to call out the US military against our own citizens only four times in our history, but every single one of those times has been to put down white supremacists. We have committed genocide twice in our history already. How much more of this do you expect the country to tolerate from you?
    You are not going to escape your losing argument by trying to label me a white supremacist. Now, either cut the crap and stick to the issue under discussion, which is this idiotic advertisement, or get lost.

    I love people who claim up and down "I'm not a racist," then turn around and focus on Obama's race.

    He also doesn't have dictatorial powers and if he was going to throw the Constitution into the trash heap of history and make himself one, don't you think he would have done so by now? It would save him a whole boatload of money come September if he didn't have to get re-elected.

    Apparently nobody knows about the history of race relations in Duluth. But I'll spare you the lesson since nobody wants to hear any information that would destroy their little "reverse racism" worldview. I'll just say this. There are still places in this world where if you walk into a business establishment looking for a job, you are automatically seen differently if you are black. The Iron Range is probably one of those places.

    There is many a pub in America where if you walk in and you are white, you will not only be looked at funny but you will be treated funny, damn funny. Indeed, you might not make it out of there with your wallet and all your teeth if you hang around very long. This is not "reverse racism." It is just plain ol' racism, and blacks can be just as capable of it as whites.

    Right. Being white gives a person an advantage in our society. As we keep going over.

    Right, whites do get treated better because of the color of their skin. We've been over that... You admit that it is true, yet you still seem really upset about people saying it.

    The notion that the ad has some obligation to point out the utterly obvious fact that there are many other factors to success as well is just bizarre... That is just some weird thing going on in your head. It isn't real. Nobody would assume that it was the only factor... That would be crazy...

    See! I don't get why you guys always deny it at first then just come out and admit it like that a few minutes later. What's the point?

    Er what? You're back to pretending that you oppose white supremacy again? But you just admitted it and started ranting out white supremacist slogans only one paragraph ago! It's crazy making! You need to pick a position and stick with it!
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    WRONG, WRONG.... WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, NUMNUTZ???... WRONG!!!!

    For the umpteenth time, being white does NOT equate with intrinsic advantage in our society any more than being black equates with intrinsic criminality. Why is this so difficult for you to comprehend? For anyone to assume that any random white person they encounter on the street is necessarily better off socioeconomically, or in any other way, than the next non-white person they encounter, simply because of whiteness is absolute racism in its purest and most ugly manifestation. Get this through your thick head right now. I am tired of explaining it to you.

    You, sir, are a racist assh*le. Plain and simple, dyed-in-the-wool RACIST!!!!

    No, the weird thing going on is entirely in your head, you sick, racist sh!t-for-brains.

    See! I don't get why you guys always deny it at first then just come out and admit it like that a few minutes later. What's the point?
    WTF are you talking about?

    What white supremacist slogans? Now I want a specific answer. What white supremacist slogans have I expressed in this discussion? You have made this idiotic accusation twice. To what exactly are you referring? Tell me.

    Listen kiddo. Again, if a white job applicant and a black job applicant apply for the same job, the white applicant gets 2.4 times more interviews. Period. That's the end of that discussion unless you can provide some kind of counter evidence. Understand? No matter how angry it makes you, those are the facts.

    LOL. So you're going to pretend you don't understand how your whole rant about how civil rights activists are making black people all uppity and so they're forming gangs to attack white people is white supremacist? Sorry pal, I don't fall for the whole "I'm not a racist, I'm just too stupid to understand why what I am saying is racist" angle. How many times in your entire life has that schtick worked for you? Ever? If you were really that stupid it's unlikely that you would be able to figure out how to read, let alone to type. You need to deal with your issues man. You need to talk to somebody about it, because it just isn't acceptable to behave like you are.

    I don't see how it suggests that the US has a caste system.

    And there is no doubt that that there are priviliges to being white in this country, and there's nothing racist about stating so




    This ad is an insult to the entire nation; which, of course, includes white people.
    There's nothing "racist" about insulting a nation, which this campaign does not do

    On a more subtle and insidious level, it is a cruel slap in the face to every white person in America who is struggling to subsist at the present time, while it serves as socially toxic, racist propaganda for every American who identifies as being something other than white and is psychologically vulnerable to the suggestions of such propaganda.
    All you've done is claim that it is racist, as if I should believe based on nothing more than your say-so. You have not said anything to explain what exactly is racist about it

    IOW, thanks for nothing

    I know, and that is a problem which you need to work on.

    Obama fought tooth and nail be "considered black" during his presidential bid. If it were so horrible and encumbering to be "black", why did Obama claim to be black instead of "white", or even "multiracial".

    Cause his whole life he has been handed everything because of his "blackness", and he fully knows liberal canards that "being black" is a disadvantage is complete bull****. His entire life is a living testament to that.

    Racist, talentless moron who accomplished nothing in life becomes president, with nothing more than flashing the race card to the leftist media. Then he wins the nobel ****ing prize for doing NOTHING again.


    Oh it's so horrible to be black.
