    So I guess he could just call someone a whitey or cracker and it wouldn't be racist. I mean... where did he say blacks were superior?

    When did Obama call someone whitey or cracker? Oh jeez. Let me ask you again: where did he call one race superior to another? Let me ask you another question: do you believe that one's racial identity and appearance help to shape one's prejudices towards race?

    It depends on the environment they are raised in.

    The syntax in Obama's words is unambiguious as to what he was referring to. If not race, then what exactly do you suppose Obama was talking about??????

    So there aren't experiences that blacks generally share relative to race? There aren't experiences that whites generally share relative to race? Strange.

    Oh, I am quite sure that he was referring to race - he even said the word "white" in reference to his grandmother. I just haven't found the part where he calls one race superior to others. Can you find it for me?

    Oh. I didn't see your question. My bad.

    It isn't necessarily racist. I mean, they depicted Bush as a monkey too and he's white, so.... - I'm not going to judge the person's intention behind the cartoon. However, many racist drawings in the past during slavery, etc. depicted black people as monkeys. As a result, many people will consider this racist because of that association. Because of this, no politician, particularly one who belongs to a party constantly called racist by the media, should forward such a cartoon. It's just not smart considering how many people will, unlike me, automatically give it racist intention.
