    People of her generation, yeah thats a true statement. But please, don't take historical context into account, that would be intelligent.

    so are you saying that the "typical white person" (and by that I mean, a typical human being) doesn't develop, as Obama says, "a reaction that's been been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way" relative to race?

    He didn't say "typical human being". He specified HER race.

    here's what he said:

    “the point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person who, you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there is a reaction that has been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and sometimes come out in the wrong way.”

    Yes, I know what he said. He pointed out "white people" instead of just saying "human beings".

    Wow! A plagiarized list posted into a thread about an ethical lapse: the irony. But hey that's just me, so be it, I am not the one who looks foolish.

    So you don't think different groups of human beings (i.e. difference races) hold generally different prejudices.

    idiotic but not indicicative of inherent racism of an entire party.
    nice non answer, and you can't possibly think that behavior doesn't add to the perception that some republicans are racist. but i note you completely avoid addressing what she actually did.

    I don't like to group people by race. I think most individuals have prejudices, yes.
