    "Nothing wrong" is not the same thing as "not racist." There could very well be things wrong with it -- it's tasteless, for one thing -- but it still wouldn't necessarily mean the song itself is racist.

    So it's not racist, idiotic, tasteless etc to say that Barack Obama's skin color makes white people feel good and that is why they vote for him. But it's racist, idiotic etc, to say he doesn't speak ebonics i.e. negro dialect? Why is this? Can you explain the reason for the Republican outcry over this? If I do remember correctly the current Vice President got scored by the left for saying Barack Obama was well spoken and some prominent Republicans defended him. Why is it they are asking Reid to step down over this now? Which one is it. Either you defend people for saying the word negro in regards to Barack Obama or you scorn them. You can't have it both ways.

    Some wish to act as if I called Steele a Uncle Tom or something. You got what I was saying and tried to twist it but my thoughts on the man stand.

    He was pretty much implying that Obama is two faced and speaks one way in public than he does in private.. He also insulted people who use slang. Just because you use slang does not mean ya lack some smarts.

    Apparently, you simply blew past everything I actually wrote, and zeroed in on exactly what you wanted to see. I said:

    "Nothing wrong" is not the same thing as "not racist." There could very well be things wrong with it -- it's tasteless, for one thing -- but it still wouldn't necessarily mean the song itself is racist.
    But no, I must think it's perfectly OK in every way, simply because I said it isn't necessarily racist, even though I said exactly the opposite of that. Nice work.

    In any case, the song itself is not saying that about Barack Obama. The LA Times did, and Sharpton did, and the song makes fun of them, not Obama. But if you don't actually care about the truth, and intellectual honesty, you go right on thinking the song is actually racist, because if you still think the song does what you say it does, there's no hope for you ever getting it. You just don't want to.

    Obama - 52
    McCain - 46




    And I think those "feelings" are just plain disgusting. You're saying that black people should only think the way you do and support the candidates you do.



    Yes, the world would be a much better place if only Snoop were in office.

    You can't be real.





    Unintentional roflcoptor preparing for takeoff:


    Umm. Sure this wolrd would be a better place if Snoop were in office as it would show that we have really advanced in our country and that the majority wants someone that will keep it real. Plus he would probably make da green and prostitution legal in all states. Not to mention you can bet he would up wages for blue collar workers.

    Snoop is very involved on a local level with his childrens schools and have even been a football coach. Do not underestimate this man..

    I find it pretty telling that you do not think some normal every day person should be POTUS.
