    You can feel the frustration and angst in apdst's posts.
    Which might be true. And also might be true of many posts and posters here. But that is hardly a substitute for knowledge, reason and understanding.

    Apdst has as much of those three as anyone here. His point on this is so on target, to disagree with it is asinine, if not intellectually dishonest.

    And you know what that point is exactly? The poster said this

    Of course I expect to be called a racist
    And there is a point here beyond the obvious when somebody knows that if they post certain things that others will see it as racist?

    He's a conservative, so he must be racist. You should understand that by now.

    I'm a minority, too and I'm not on welfare, I'm not unemployed. I'm also not so ****ing stupid to think that a 35% unemployment rate within the black community is ok, either; nor am I going to ignore the fact. I'm also not going to ignore the fact that minorities make up 70% of the welfare rolls in the U.S. Let's face it, the Libbos have bought off all minorities with government handouts.

    I also think it's highly chicken **** to call me a racist for pointing out those facts. I point out real live problems within my own community and I'm a ****ing racist? **** that ****!

    I expect it, because Libbos will always resort to the, "yooze-a-racist", argument.

    He likes creating race drama.

    To explain: The candidates had essentially the same views about welfare and entitlements. The major campaigning was done between Chico and Emanuel, and it focused on raising the sales tax in Chicago. Chico also ran ads talking about how Rahm grew up in a affluent suburb, while Chico grew up in a blue collar part of the city. But as far as what the majority of people saw in this race, there was precicely **** all about welfare and entitlements.

    But instead of saying something that makes sense and actualy addresses teh campaign or real situation here, apdst instead decides to inject race into the discussion for not other purpose than to create race drama.

    He does this by claiming that Rahm was voted in because minorities wanted entitlements.

    Now, anyone from Chicago or who has actually followed the election is aware of how stupid and absurd this claim is with regard to the actual race that existed in reality, but most peopel aren't going to be all that aware of anything more than Rahm emanuel and possibly Braun.

    Anyway, apdst makes this claim coupled with the "prediction" that he will be accused of racism because of it. People who do not know that he is black might look at the inherently prejudiced claim that he made and then assume that he is racist and make teh acusation of racism which then allows him to gleefully point out that he is black. The truth is that apdst is not racist. He's a race-baiter. He often injects race into discussions that have nothing to do with race because he seems to love playing the "I'm not racist, I'm a black conservative. You liberals are the real racists!" card.

    What it actually does, is show the stupidity of the garden variety Libbo, that automatically assumes that all Conservatives are white and will use the, "yooze-a-racist", argument to try and scare Conservatives. It's a fact tat any criticism of anything, or anyone that is non-white, will be seen as racist by Libbos. If you Libbos don't like finding out that I'm not white, then maybe they should drop their pre-concieved notions about Conservatives. Just sayin'.

    At least you admit that you are a race-baiter.
