    I'm glad that you are forthright about your racism Rainman, its much better than dealing with the cowardly losers who camouflage their true beliefs.

    Oh, c'mon, guys. I was looking forward to the part where he tells us that only some Asians are gooks or dirty yellow slanteyes, and only some Jews are bloodysucking genocidal world-dominating gold hording Zionismists.

    what? within the last 300 years or so only a hand-full of people of the "white race" had it good. And when we are talking on a world scale throughout history whites have had just as much hardship as anyone else.
    You are grouping the feelings and incidences of all white people throughout our history into one entity and saying it was better then people of others?
    Stop grouping people like that.

    re: Obama and the african american constituency. [W:50]

    Back on topic, I believe there are those who will not see past the party will never vote for the other party, no matter what.

    What percent that is of the voting public is difficult to determine.

    Have heard several white folks, a county commissioner and district judge both see race as an issue. One thought it was the perfect time for people to move into the Republican ticket in local races as many older folks won't be voting straight party ticket because of that 'nappy headed Jessie Jackson looking communist', the other was of the opinion that if Obama won the blacks would get payback. There would be a backlash on whites in government positions as the blacks would take over everything.

    Again, not sure what percent of the voting public think that either...

    Since the Civil Rights Movement passed a century after the War of Northern Aggression minorities have strongly supported the Democrat Party, southern whites have shifted to the Party of Lincoln.

    I watch as some post praise for a few Republican blacks, but they do seem to be a small flock of odd ducks. Not likely to draw much attention from any stripe of progressive or liberal.

    this kind of comment makes the site look bad. i can't imagine why you thought it was ok to post something like that.

    I don't get nearly offended by the term "white trash" as I do the "N" word, well, because the "white race" has felt nothing throughout history on anywhere near the same level as African-Americans or other ethnicities.

This applies to the remaining black population which is neither part of the intellectual elite or the slums of society).

    It tips the balance for the latino community...

    And it matters a great deal for whites. Why? because of all the "if you don't vote for Obama, you're a racist! RACIST! RACIST! And all that jazz.. spewed by the mentally bankrupt.

    You're right. I was grouping all people as one entity and I shouldn't have done that.

    That being said, I still stand by what I said. I don't see view the term "white trash" as offensive I view the "N" word.

    I don't think there is any doubt that many blacks vote for Obama because he's black. Why wouldn't they? I think there are at least some in any race that vote that way.

    That is the problem.

    Black people have suffered no more than any other 'race'. They don't seem to have a problem calling each other the N word. They got no problem calling us crackers. No one in Japan, Korea or China has a problem calling me a round-eye.

    But God forbid a white person says something!
