    Sounds good as long as you know you're on the same side as those who get to define who is and who is not “radical”.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Seems a rather strange thing to base an assertion on

    The President said "racial tensions" - you're a smart guy, what do you think that refers to?

    Since demographics in America are such that only marginally over 50% are white and that includes a whole lot of different demographic groups, not the monoliths like black Americans or hispanic Americans, just who do you think this "majority" is that is going to resort to violence against other races?

    And please show us statistics that indicate white Americans attack blacks, hispanics, and others when the economy isn't strong? I'd love to see the source of your conjecture.

    It could be seen that way, and probably other ways as well. So do you think that view is supportable?

    He's giving blacks an out. He's stating something so that they can say "Obama told you it was coming." He's the worst of the race pimps/baiters.
    With a name like Slice, what did you expect?

    Wanting to keep guns out of the hands of groups like the black panthers or Aryan Nations is twisted?

    Heck lets give RPGs to biker gangs and street gangs that will make the world a safer place
    Those groups don't represent any REAL threat.

    And neither do " biker gangs" .

    No; but many pinheads on the far Right might interpret it that way, not that they matter, really.

    Actually it's been well explained, but unfortunately you wouldn't get it. O'loser was saying he gets his way or racial violence will occur and he even implies justified.

    Case in point. Thanks for helping to illustrate what I was getting at.

    1. It's pretty sad when the President of the United States has such contempt for the citizens of the country that he believes minorities will turn to violence if something isn't done about the economy.

    2. This President is predicting violence if the economy doesn't improve, yet he wants to restrict your access to guns and ammunition.

    3. This President loves to pit those who are successful and acquire the fruits of their success against those who are less successful in life. He loves to portray those with success and wealth as being undeserving of that success and wealth and those who are less successful as being deserving of their share of the successful person's wealth. Is it any wonder that some may feel the President is condoning taking from the successful and wealthy, even if it takes violence?

    I got the impression that he was talking about racial tensions currently being in a bad state and that is unlikely to improve as people struggle through their day to day needs. As I mentioned above, if we can gleam anything from history, it's that hard times solidify social and cultural resentment and help foster the "us vs them" mentality.

    Pretty much just stating the obvious
