    No, you are a racist because you can't get over the fact that this president is black. It doesn't matter if you support him because he's black or oppose him because he's black. in either instance, you are being a racist.

    Sorry but I don't view them that way and you are a racist bigot for viewing them this way.

    I aint the one who is viewing them in this way... lol... I was making the point that many on the US right viewed it in this way and it was bloody obvious to anyone watching from the outside. When the GOP accused him of being a Muslim, we all knew that it was code for "black". They could not attack him on race, but they surely could imply that he was not a Christian, and since the stereotype is that most Christians are white, and most Muslims are dark skinned, then well..

    In no way does Egypt and the turmoil there now have anything to do with America and the fool in the White House. There really is nothing for America to do now - no benefit to taking sides - just a need to stay engaged on the sidelines, encourage calm and a quick return to democracy and elections, assist that process whichever direction it takes, and live with the results. No country wants America telling them who should be their leaders.

    Similarly, in Iraq, America has let the people of that country determine who leads them and they'd be wise to do the same thing in Afghanistan moving forward. America benefits by assisting people to overcome tyranny but those same people need the freedom to choose their own path forward.

    I see, you just make more of a persons race than others do because you know they think the same way you think about race. Is that it? Muslims are all black in your mind? Obviously it was a racist GOP because Obama claimed to be a Christian right before he said he was a Muslim. Obviously, in your racist little mind that had nothing to do with flip-flopping as a politician and had everything to do with the color of his skin.

    Muslims and Christians aren't defined by color!

    I rest my case!!! You are a friggin racist!!!

    They claimed he was a Muslim long before Obama said anything the remotely back up their claim. It all started with the whole birther crap and people pointing out that his father was Muslim and hence Obama was born Muslim according to Islamic law and all that crap.

    And it is not my fault you are in denial that race matters in the US and especially in certain.

    Muslims and Christians aren't defined by color!
    Tell that to the American right wing.... I know fully well that people are not defined by color. But when you hear comments from American right wingers, like WHO health statistics are bull**** because the US has more blacks and latinos and they drag down the statistics... then well. And yes it has happened more than once on these boards.

    I rest my case!!! You are a friggin racist!!!
    Nope, not even close.. not even close.

    I'm not a GOP but I'm an informed American. I remember the election well and I challenge you to prove your claims that mainstream GOP was calling Obama a Muslim at any time, much less before he called himself a Muslim in an interview.

    As for the "American right wing", nothing you said about it proves anything or detracts from the fact that you love to separate people into races, religions and other profiles. People aren't people to you because they are a skin color, religion, sexual orientation, etc... This is what racists do. You might think you aren't a racist because you don't hate the popular groups but you can't escape the fact that you see the world through skin color and religion colored glasses.

    You, Pete EU, are the most dangerous kind of racist there is!

    Good observation. It was very "crappy" of Obama to have been the one to have started the "birther crap". He is the original "birther" and honest people recognize that. So always remember, when throwing stones at birthers, save one for the guy that started it all.
