    Re: Is President Obama a racist?

    I wouldn't call the President a racist. What I would say is he has Black pride which is no different than any White or Hispanic person who takes exceptional passion or enthusiasm in being a part of his/her racial and/or cultural background. Has the President had a few episodes where he fumbled on a racial issue or in hindsight perhaps believes he should've just refrained from commenting on the situation altogether? Yes, he has and I'm sure if he could have a do-over he'd express himself differently. But if displaying pride and/or concern for the group of people you closely identify with is now being defined as racism, then count me as one! For I am a proud Black man.

    Look, this country has had White men leading this nation for over 230 years and not once (that I'm aware of) has anyone questioned whether or not any of them were racist just because they attended a specific church or commented publically on a specific act of social injustice whether civil or criminal. I'm sure people called former President Truman a nigger lover when he signed an executive order to desegregate the military. And I know Lincoln faced harsh criticism for emancipating slaves. But I seriously doubt folks questioned their pride or support for White people even when they took such bold steps to end racism in this country.

    Now, I understand where some people who don't like President Obama are coming from with this issue of race. Put frankly, on occasion he has shown a certain partiality to Black causes or for fair/equal treatment for Black people on a case-by-case basis. But IMO that's not being racist. That's him attempting to bring a broad sense of awareness to a situation that has caught the attention of the nation. Because he is the President, his statue carries lots of weight. The hope is his words can ease racial tensions, not escalate them. So far during his presidency, he's had four racial situations that garnered national attention, three of which perhaps didn't go over very well:

    1) Leaving Rev. Wright's church

    2) Beerfest w/Henry Louis Gates and police Sgt. Joseph Crowley

    3) The firing of Mrs. Sherlie Sheddon

    4) The shooting death of Trayvon Martin

    Of the four incidents, I thought he handled leaving Rev. Wright's church the best, but you notice that at no time did the President condemn White people for their actions. If anything, he has tried to bridge the racial divide. IMO, he has fumbled on at least two occasions - Beerfest and the Sheddon firing - but overall, I wouldn't say he showed racism in how he handle them. Racial biasness...maybe, because he clearly has shown more concern for social injustices committed against Black people moreso than White people, but in his defense there hasn't been a serious situation involving mistreatment of a White person that gained national attention where his opinion has been sought....yet. Nonetheless, the key here is how he defends one race (Blacks) but condemns another (Whites) for the offense or crime committed. Until that happens, you don't have racism where he's concerned. You just have...concern w/pride mixed in. Nothing more.

    But the reverse has certainly been projected at him. No one can question the validity of that statement!!

    again what does your opinion above do to the fact that white people attend that church and work there?
    and your failed insults also do nothing to change this fact, it just shows how desperate you are to try and deflect from the truth.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_WallisAlthough Wallis actively eschews political labels, his advocacy tends to focus on issues of peace and social justice and he works as a spiritual advisor to President Barack Obama.

    2. the current fiasco in Fla where he took the black persons side without knowing all the facts.
    A lot of people do that regardless of what race they and regardless if they are a racist or not. It doesn't make them racist.My best friend is black,married to a white woman,has 4 bi-racial children with her and he is on the Zimmerman is a evil racist who shot a poor innocent little kid without knowing all the facts.


    3. the incident last year in DC
    You are going to have to be more specific.

    4. he threw his grandmother under the bus.
    He also threw his minister under the bus when he found out that having a anti-American racist preacher is not kosher with voters.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    seriously, there is no reason whatsoever to take this projecting, race-baiting thread seriously.

    other than for ****s & giggles.
