    I happen to find that ideology repugnant myself, but you... embrace it.
    The last thing the democrats want is for minorities to think that they are good enough to succeed without help from, who else, the democrats. They always talk about government programs, taxing the rich for more money, free college, free, lunch, etc... They avoid ever telling people that they can do it on their own. Always reinforcing that they need help, that they are just not as good.

    You do realize that is a racist statement.... worrying about how black someone is. Especially since that did not qualify him to sit in the middle of the bus in 1959, stay in cheapest room of a premium Atlanta hotel in 1955 nor play half a season of major league baseball in 1946.

    Sorry pal, but we whites chose to classify anyone that looked black as black. We remanded them to the back of bus and second class status by mere look. There was no test of degree of black. If they were somewhat black, they were black. Now that blacks have some semblance of the glory of equality. They are fully entitled to enjoy all of that glory. They worked hard and fought hard as did many of our fellow citizens for this day. It should not have it belittled, comprised or otherwise diminished by such bigoted statements.

    Completely irrelevant. I don't know where you get worrying, or racist from. You on the left are always seeing race first.

    You are mixing up two different things, fact and perception. Fact is, without a doubt, his racial makeup is 50% white and 50% black. Absolutely no doubt there. But, you perceive him to be a black man. You've been conditioned that way, many people will quite easily go along with this because they want it to be true. They've been conditioned to be this way.

    But look at him. No where near as dark as his father. No where near as white as his mother. Just about in the middle. He has features from both, not just his father's. But even if he had no white features and his skin color wasn't so light, he is still 50/50.

    So he lied about where he was born AND what year?

    That people who equate walking 1200 feet across a bridge with an original 54 mile march is a testament to how soft society has become maybe.....

    Maybe the Kenyan Calendar and the American Calendar don't correspond because of all the leap years.

    What, are you disappointed? Where you expecting something different? Why let facts get in the way of a good story? The sad thing is, he knows he can tell this to all his followers and they will obediently believe it. At least I know I would seriously question my support for someone that treated me that way. But he knows that liberals are a "the ends justifies the means" type group.
