    It's subtle and it's racism.

    Really? Having everything one touches turn to shyte (instead of gold) isn't a new meme that was only created for Obama. Since the point is that the president has been bragging that every piece of crap legislation (like ObamaCare) is sweetness and goodness and just yummy awesome was the thing that set the table here, not the fact that Obama is half black.

    Maybe you can explain how chocolate is a pejorative that is used to denigrate Obama for being black. Wanna take a stab at that? Or do you just want to imply that it's probably so even though you can't point it out.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Explain the subtlety. Explain the negative racial connotation.

    So what is your definition of real racism?

    I have explained why it is racist once, and I don't feel the need to repeat myself to those who wish to hurl words like stupid. Believe what you want. I have made myself clear.

    I'm not going to give a definition. Racism is when you watch your father attempt to buy a house in a white neighborhood and the residents come and offer you a house somewhere else because they don't want you in their neighborhood because you are black. That is not a definition, but that is an example and is indeed one of the many things that I have experienced.

    Well, you did make yourself clear. You made it clear that you've got nothing but insinuations; the favorite debate mechanism for intellectual cowards.

    ok thanks.

    I thought you were one of those people who think it is "racist" when I for example say that gangster rap promots a thug culture.
