    I am not going to go down this road with you. Just try to be a black man or woman who isnt a democrat, you will be called an "Uncle Tom" you will be shunned by other members of the community... I witnessed
    this kind of thing first hand, That anyone trying to better themselves with education was a "Sell Out" or just trying to be "White"

    I don't believe for a moment that any one race is more or less intelligent than another... but peer pressure, and your friends can have a major impact on what you do, and what you see.

    And you don't think that black voters are able to turn on their television or computer and notice that most Democratic politicians, like most Republican politicians, are white? For someone who takes great umbrage at accusations of racism, you sure don't seem to have much faith in the intelligence of black people.

    No sir, I have great faith in them, but they see almost all of the politicians from all sides are white, and that the few blacks they do see are dems... well except for "Uncle Toms" like Herman Cain, and Allen West...

    It is you, not I that keeps wanting me to say that blacks are somehow less intelligent... I have now said repeatedly that I think nothing of the sort.

    when those around you in leadership continue the big lie ... you believe it.. it doesnt matter who you are, what race you are... it has happened with people of every race and creed... so please let's not attribute to malice, what is a simple disagreement in the reasons why.

    Not rationing, that ended after WWII... "Food Stamps" are a supplimental nutrition program set up to provide vouchers for the purchase of food for those who have incomes of 130% of the poverty level or less.

    Re: The Food Stamp President

    Newt said that calling Obama the "food stamp president' was part of his "southern strategy" to win the confederate southern states during the last primary. It must have worked because he won S. Carolina and Georgia. In fact, he got a standing ovation when he said it in S. Carolina. But Newt wasn't the first to use racial coded buzzwords. Goldwater did it, Nixon did it, Reagan did it, GHW Bush did it, GWBush did it ....so nowadays it almost seems natural for the GOP to use blacks as scapegoats to get elected. And why not since they know they aren't going to get the black vote anyway and using coded buzzwords and dog whistle rhetoric helps to shore up the white conservative base....as evidenced by that poll.


    ****



    Lee Atwater: You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." By 1968 you can't say "nigger"—that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now that you're talking about cutting taxes, [foodstamps, unemployment, healthcare, etc.], and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is that blacks get hurt worse than whites.

    And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me—because obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nigger, nigger".

    Re: The Food Stamp President

    Yes. And is one of the most useful programs. I mean, it's food. If they're poor, it's cool to help them eat better. We all wish there were less fraudsters in the system but I'll guess most of it accomplishes its purpose and uses domestic products for the most part.

    Now, if I were asked to come up with a list of MUCH less useful programs.......
