    Real racism is very ugly.

    Please stop trivializing it.

    You will find far more dirty politics, jokes, slander, etc. against the likes of McCain, Bush (43), Palin, etc.

    It's politics as usual.

    No it doesn't. This same float could apply to any white president that people think are full of feces.

    Your seeing it in that manner reflects your own racial bias. Not mine.

    Really?

    Are you familiar with the organization that sponsored the parade?

    Your ignorance is now showing.

    When is the last time you said such a sentiment when liberals exercise their freedom of speech that upsets conservatives?

    Some would say they didn't disrespect the presidency. They disrespected outhouses.

    I'm afraid the ignorance is mostly yours ... you have virtually no understanding of racism, do you? If you don't say "Let's hang the n***er" before you hang him, it ain't racism, is it?
    BTW, my comment about Nebraska is tongue in cheek to say that this kind of thing is not all that important. We live in a country that is still very racist. It's to be expected.

    Does that apple taste like an orange?

    Where are the racial words at in the float?

    Could that same float apply to a woman or white president?

    LOL. The key for me is I don't see voting democrat as that repulsive. Rather I see it as the ice cream truck coming down the street and to teach my own kids a lesson, I buy every kid in the neighbor ice cream except my own.

    Not that I think they're the best ideas ever either. I could write out a list of the things the GOP claims are destroying America, the republicans did first and few people complained at the time. Increasing the debt ceiling over and over again. Deficit spending. Lying to the American public and when the GOP did it it was usually over things that cost lives. Bailing out Wall Street. Bailing out the auto industry. Giving amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants (something the democrats haven't even done.) And this is just what I can think of off the top.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    over the past two or three years I've had to explain this countless of times and I'm tired of doing it ... but let me ask you this instead or as another way of explaining it - if you call a white man "boy" is it the same thing as calling a black man "boy" ... You're missing the historical context of all this %^$# ... If you put a monkey's face on Obama is it the same as putting one on Bush's?

    No but they both taste like fruit.

    Irrelevant, the question is that if it perceived in a way due to a pattern it doesn't have to be explicit. If a guy punches a person of Asian decent in a bar, then we have no reason to believe it is racist. If a guy did it for the fifth time in a month and has not punched anyone else then we can ask the question.

    Could that same float apply to a woman or white president?
    That is not the standard if it is racist and why did you include women? Do you not understand what race is?
