    Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) told NBCís Chuck Todd today that President Obama is having a hard time in her state of Louisiana because the South isnít exactly the friendliest place to African-Americans. Landrieu went down a laundry list of reasons Obama isnít popular in Louisiana, starting with energy policy and how ďfuriousĒ people in her state were about Obama placing a moratorium on offshore drilling.

    But then the Louisiana senator threw out this reason as well: ďTo be very, very honest with you, the South has not always been the friendliest place to African-Americans. Itís been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a positive light as a leader. Itís not always been a good place for women to be able to present ourselves, itís more of a conservative place.Ē .....snip~

    That is not a "fact," that is racebaiting for the sake of divisive identity politics.

    It is a fact that the president revels in this kind of racial rhetoric and it is not surprising that his lackeys do the same.

    The good news is... it's an old trick now. It's not working anymore.

    Minorities keep moving forward at a remarkable clip.....except for black Americans. They're stuck in the middle of nowhere, deteriorating from within, with no promise of better because they continue to vote for their own demise.

    Many conservative black leaders are trying to change this, so maybe there's hope. It's just so frustrating and sad to watch.
    THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE MOST IGNORANT POST I'VE READ !!!!

    Your ignorance of the black community is saddening. In case you haven't notice, Republicans did sh***y with Hispanics and hell even Asians. You want to make this personal fine. But stop going to those "rallies" and do some true research.

    Matter of fact, just don't say s*** to me !!!!!

    But that was part of the answer. She first stated that his energy policies and then the obvious leads to his unpopularity in the south. Why are you hiding from the fact that the south still has a race issue. Do you think the average white voter in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama don't look at his race as a factor as well?

    Lets not kid ourselves

    The truth often hurts. I understand.

    Many blacks don't even think it's possible for blacks to be racist toward white people. There's a HUGE problem in the discussion right there. Racism is only possible in one direction, I've heard it said multiple times.

    And I'll add this. White people are FAR more accepting toward the black community than what Hispanics and Asians are. There is some deeply seeded hatred coming from there. And they don't hide it. But of course, that doesn't fit the liberal narrative.

    Democrats aren't interested in changing this dynamic because without that 95-5, they can't win anything.

    And do you think the average black voter in those states doesn't do the same? Don't kid yourself.

    You do realize for your comments to be 100% factual, that the majority of blacks have to be completely gullible and unintelligent then. Might want to re-think your post there cause you're sounding a bit racist insulting the majority of black people.

    Exactly, he don't even realize that he insulted us in a very racist way. That the problem with many on the right.
