    Nobody needs legitimate cause to be part of the Oscars if they are invited to do so. What is this, the Oscar-Nazi Thread?

    The funny thing, probably 75% of them are black themselves.

    I thought that was pretty racist.

    I do not find it racist either. It is simply an observation and facts.

    Oh not at all.....as they have no problem calling him or her out to answer up with what he or she says out of their mouths and with the actual way they was around here. One has to wonder why so many of his own people in Chicago talk Chit about him. Democrats, liberals, and Progressives. I mean we know those who are flat out against him will. But hearing all these people that supported him. Now that's another thing.

    I believe you and your black "friends" have every right to speak out against the president.

    We are also able to speak out about the veracity of those comments.

    I find black folks' criticism of Barack and Michelle Obama to be more racially tinged than those coming from white people. To me that is bizarre. What is your motivation and objective to inject racial overtones into your criticism?

    Were you this upset about Nancy Reagan's appearance on Diff'rent Strokes?

Not only are they professional nontraditional, they are also outspoken and open about their opinions in a way that flies in the face of the traditional role women have played historically. I think that that genuinely rubs a lot of the conservative base the wrong way.

    I also, in spite of how apparently untouchable this topic is, think race plays a factor. There are enough studies out there that show that internalized prejudice and racism is still pretty rampant in American society. While Democrats may have those same prejudices, their political support for the Obamas may override those sentiments, particularly when it comes to vocalizing those thoughts. Republicans don't support the Obamas politically so, just as some Democrats projected their prejudice against Southerners on Bush, I think quite a few Republicans are projecting their issues with race onto the the Obamas.

    In sum, I think race and gender play a role in addition to some of the factors that Zyphlin mentioned.
    Michelle is not anti-traditional First Lady. She's doing a fairly typical job as First Lady. She just has more media attention and a developed fashion sense (which you can put to media bias if you want, I'm certainly not opposed to that....and the latter I care almost nothing about).

    It's not and has nothing to do with such nor me. Although it does have to do with that hypocrisy that the Obama's Embellish on. Which any ire they draw is from their own making.

    You are the one that are looking at black people. I already mentioned those here that talk about him in any way they choose to do so. Although I didn't use any ethnicity. Just those that supported him. Course this really doesn't mean much. That they supported him that is. Plus just because they do talk Chit about him. Doesn't mean they will go out and vote for a Republican either.
