    Tell that to the GOP since they're the ones using blacks as scapegoats to get your vote.

    Re: The Food Stamp President

    I found some of your remarks very insightful. I agree, watermelons and chicken can be used in a derogatory way and I totally agree can be a racist remark. However in my lifetime, I have never known "food stamps" to have the same implied meaning. You say that it is the way it is perceived by blacks, I'm sorry but I just cant buy that one. You look at Sharpton and Jessy Jackson, a white person can not open their mouth without being called a racist. It has come to the point the left cries "Racist" so often it has lost its meaning.

    I dont care if it is a Woman, Mexican, Black or any other minority, when you are President of our country, there is going to be heat in the kitchen. No matter who you are , you're are going to be critizied, just suck it up and deal with it instead of whinning all the time

    I do not think you are promoting this nor do I question your sincerity. I read the links I am simply repulsed by the whole idea as both the target of this nonsense is portrayed in such a manner and the target of the information is also treated in such a derisive manner for shoving this crap down their throats.

    A derogatory for a person of african or african american decent. BUT it could also mean a generally lazy person. This term came to be when you think of african americans sitting on there porch chatting it up.

    Someone without a job that sits on their porch all day drink'n 40's, and trading food stamps for crack.

    A person, of African descent, usually found in the Southern states of the United States. Porch Monkeys were commonly found sitting on their porches doing little or nothing all day. Usually found on Plantations or large land lots with a house/shack of some sort including a porch. An Alabama Porch Monkey

    Urban Dictionary: porch monkey


    Since your a good ol southern boy, cpwill, do southerners associate "porch monkey's" with welfare and foodstamps? According that definition above, it sure looks they do.

    Any more offensive than what some loving lib did to Mia Loves Wiki?

    That is dispicable. But since you didn't provide a link I question whether or not it was a liberal who did that and not a conservative such as a Breitbart goon trying to make liberals look bad. If your source was Breitbart or any of it's affiliates in the rightwing bloggosphere then you have already answered my question.

    Really dude? You're citing some anonymous troll on Wikipedia as an explanation for why Republicans can't get more than 5% of black voters?

    Here is one article I have not seen where any particular source is cited for the wiki defacement. There seems to be some comments about it which claim that liberals wrote them. When it comes to wiki I look askance at any "information" and need the specific sources before being convinced.

    It appears the defacing occured around 2am and Wiki fixed it back around 3am and it was all over the right wing bloggosphere by 10 am this morning. I find that more than a little curious, especially considering few people know who Mia Love is outside of SLC. It's also interesting that most of those rightwing websites are asking for donations to Mia Love's campaign.

    Same here. Until there is a verified source anyone could have done this. There are public relations advantages for Mia Love no matter who did it so I am of the mind to wait and see. I never heard of this woman before this situation now I know who she is.
