I just can't imagine a person so hateful and racist they post a black woman, especially the first lady as an ape. And I will be disappointed if the mods just sit back and let it happen.
The crazy is strong in this thread. I've yet to read a single complaint that isn't "I don't agree with her politics" or "she's black, therefor she's dumb".
are you denying that the new AG is not an affirmative action poster child? She is the same age as me. I had friends at her college and her law school. If she had been white-none of those people would have ever have met her
I'd have that debate with some people, but for some strange reason I suspect it would be a waste of time with you. Not sure why - gut feeling of some kind....We'll put aside racism and bigotry when we end affirmative action. Why are you so opposed to judging people on merit?
Share with us her grades, LSATs (if that was a thing back then), maybe her extracurriculars, her essays. Why are you so certain your (obviously HIGHLY qualified) buddies wouldn't have had to associate with this riff raff?
Oh, yeah, she's BLACK! Proof enough I guess... LOL.
And I'm sorry but the double standard for rich white boys is staggering. Ask your friends in Harvard how many of the rich white boys and girls wouldn't have been there if not for rich daddy paving the way for legacy admissions.
I've read too many of your posts TD. If someone disagrees with your politics you start name calling and calling into question their intelligence, their abilities, their qualifications. You're a biased political hack. If you want to tell me unaccomplished she is then give me a name and lets compare them against her and lets see if she's really as poor of a choice as you say.
the mods allow all kinds of stupidity to be posted on these boardsI just can't imagine a person so hateful and racist they post a black woman, especially the first lady as an ape. And I will be disappointed if the mods just sit back and let it happen.
and i appreciate that large degree of tolerance
from what i see, they draw the line at personal insults
while an ignorant forum member might post something you don't like, that should not be a basis for censorship
and like you, i am voicing my opinion, as i have no authority to censor or not censor. simply sharing an opinion that differs from yours so that those in authority can recognize that your views are not wholly representative of the membership
i find it almost laughable that we recently had a clown as attorney general, and nothing was made of the fact that gonzales was selected from the minority/hispanic community
Gosh, what I hope you're saying isn't true..... political appointments are....POLITICAL!!! OH NOOO my faith in humanity is shattered!! Every other President in our history before the Obama has scoured the country for the most qualified on paper appointment for every position!! Now I'm learning that who you are and who you know MATTERS!??!! AAARRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!
The hilarious thing is she's no different than every other person to get appointed to a high profile political post like that - she's spent her life kissing the right...rings, and making the right connections and taking the right jobs, and all the rest. But when a white man does all that we accept it as the nature of the beast, as unsightly and borderline corrupt as such a process ALWAYS is. But now that a black woman is doing it, now it's somehow unfair that better (white male) people who didn't kiss the right rings got passed over. Give me a break. It's life in politics, same as it's been since the founding.
