    why do you care and why would you think him being black would limit him to certain, predetermined, positions?

    I have explained my position many times before.

    Why do black conservatives keep perpetuating racism when they talk about politics? It is never done in a constructive manner. It is always ugly and low intelligence comments. I do not see black liberals doing it.

    Are you black? Why answer for someone else otherwise?

    You know, you could be wrong in what you view as "perpetuating racism"?

    Expecting less from someone because of the color of their skin is hugely racist.

    Were there questions being raised? If either Bush were asked about their background would anyone call them racists for asking? Would they be called 'birthers', for example?

    Where is the source for these silly labels the left comes up with?

    There were no questions. That's the point . Black guy with a foreign sounding name gets nominated, and suddenly it's a big deal.

    Why were there no questions about either Bush, or Clinton, or any of the other 40 men who were President? (Except for Chester A. Arthur, but I doubt you knew that).

    Its not that people believe that all liberals are not racist. It is a simple truth, the republican party (as a whole) is more tolerant to racism then the democratic party. But let me also say that I don't believe that all republicans are racist either.

    You guys are just selfish and Greedy

    Actually conservatives contribute to charities at a far higher rate than libs.


    "Dr. Arthur Brooks’ 2006 book, “Who Really Cares? America’s Charity Divide: Who Gives, Who Doesn’t and Why It Matters,” quoted studies pointing out the differences between the giving habits of political liberals and conservatives. In one study, households headed by a conservative gave away 30 percent more money to charity than households headed by a liberal ($1,600 to $1,227) even though the household income of liberals was 6 percent higher.

    Brooks cited other studies concluding that conservatives are more likely to volunteer time to help the poor than liberals — an average of 12 percent more total hours each year. And they are more likely to donate blood. “If liberals and moderates gave blood at the same rate as conservatives, the blood supply in the United States would jump by about 45 percent,” he wrote."
