    The GOP's base is old White males.

    That's a shrinking demographic.

    Neither. Our race relations have always been pretty ****ty in this country.

    See ya. Maybe next time we meet you'll have an actual stance and argument to make.

    Not just old white males. Also old white females.

    Can you not admit that there is a decent portion of the population that is still harboring racism - and that includes people in Congress?
    Yes, every President by the opposing party. The only difference is everybody in the country can see it with social media and the 24/7 news cycle.

    When more than 25% of all illegal aliens are NOT Hispanic, yet Obama only presents his Obamnesty details in a White House web page titled "President Obama and The Hispanic Community", he is clearly, blatantly, and egregiously race-baiting.

    He knows that the jobs millions of illegal aliens take should they get Obamnesty will be significantly those jobs that Black African Americans have, undercutting them with plummeting wage scales.

    But he does so anyway, pitting this race against that race, all for his political agenda.

    This is simply the most recent example where Obama has pitted one race against another.

    Obama singles out people by race and then gives them special treatment over other races.

    That is simply wrong, and it has contributed to racial violence where poverty enclaves of Hispanics and Blacks overlap.
    How is that even possible when "Hispanic" is not a race?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Ok. Maybe then you'll be able to actually recognize one when it's provided.

    I believe he's helped.

    When he was first elected, I know some folks (black and white) that speculated he would be assassinated before his inauguration.

    As his term expires, they will have the shared experience of having a President of "their own" that had his ups and downs like any other.

    He's been Presiding while black, is that help or hindrance? It certainly seems to have offended the more rancid right.
    Don't work out, work in.
