    Racism is born, bred, manifested and metastasized in the mind of a Leftist and has been a tenet of Communism for more than 100 years.
    Bwahaha...so racism didn't exist in "real life" in the past 100 years? I guess the Jim Crow south was communist propaganda.

    The former FBI Director, J. Edgar Hoover, said of the Communist goals:

    "Communists seek to advance the cause of communism by injecting themselves into racial situations and in exploiting them, (1) to intensify the frictions between Negroes and Whites to 'prove' that discrimination against the minorities is an inherent defect of the capitalistic system, (2) to foster domestic disunity by dividing Negroes and Whites into antagonistic, warring factions, (3) to undermine and destroy established authority, (4) to incite racial strife and riotous activity, and (6) to portray the Communist movement as the 'champion' of social protest and the only force capable of ameliorating the conditions of the Negro and the oppressed."
    Bizarre you quote Hoover on race. He also believed the Civil rights movement was a communist plot. They threatened MLK on multiple occasions and tried to black mail him. Seems like your kind of guy....

    You and that DHS employee can now go into complete denial. 8)

I'm sure you'd prefer to just go back to pretending that there are no problems, since most of them benefit you at the expensive of blacks and latinos.
    And this is why the right will continue fail at attracting minorities. They still see talking about race as "injecting race into things" rather than acknowledging the reality. Democrats and Obama are not perfect, but at least more of them acknowledge the reality that many non-whites face.

    A smarter strategy might be believing in one's positions without regards to attracting a particular block...

I'm curious what others think and why.
    why do you post lies, that is NOT what i said at all and why is your poll private? VERY telling.
    I didnt just come out and say obama united the races, nice try but a failure,
    im glad somebody told me this lie was here.
    ALso why didnt you post what YOU Said and i told you to post about??? ALso very telling
    no need to make stuff up just cause that thread was a total failure and the posters mocked your OP

    why dont you make a post/poll about you said, you said that ANY black man could have run in 08 and they would have run simply because they were black.
    weird you left this out and tried to spin your thread/post in a very dishonest direction but failed.

    the context of my REAL comment, somebody wrote this: (they are probably banned now for the many ignorant things they said)
    The bottom line is that since Obama has been President there is more racial divide that I have seen since I was a kid. And I went through the Detroit riot of 1967.
    I replied with this bit of truth
    actually the reality is, since his election the people that never had a problem with race, black and white are equal or closer.
    The ones that were always racist bigots (no matter their own color) are worse because they are scared, just have bigger and louder mouths but their numbers havent changed. They realize how dumb they are and that the country is getting smarter then them.


    the fact is Obama got himself elected twice by his ability to bring races together

    this doesnt mean we all like him and his policies but it is how he got elected
    notice how i said its how he won the election and i said close and equal, made ZERO comments about just bringing races together in general, fail
    I said this because Obama got 43% of the white voter turn out, a percentage not surpassed in 28 years

    then you said this awesome statement that nobody backed up

It wasn't Obama that brought the races together in the polls, it was strictly his color, it could have been any black man.
    next time be honest, facts defeat you again

    nobody supported this because they are educated to know flava flav never wins the presidency and if you need better examples than that they also know AL sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Allen west and Herman cain would have got their clocks cleaned if they ran. would have lost in landslides.

    Ill be looking forward to the actual poll

    The right will continue to fail at attracting minorities because it's much less palatable to tell people to take responsibility for themselves as opposed to giving them something for nothing, telling them that it's someone else's fault, and removing anything close to personal responsibility or accountability.

    Look at yourself - all you do is shirk responsibility, complain, and blame "the man". You're not interested in empowering other blacks. You're interested in telling them who to blame.

    This is why Sharpton is a standing joke to anyone with a triple digit IQ.

    The implication of your comment is that acknowledging racial issues has to be a "strategy." It doesn't have to be and it shouldn't be. Everyone should want to acknowledge racial issues because everyone should want to acknowledge reality. That conservatives don't tend to acknowledge those particular realities is a sign of their weakness.

    Who put that in your mind? Academia, your parents?

    I'm Conservative and don't believe in any of that. Nor do most people I know.
