    "Seperate white only memorials should be built"

    "Negros are ethnicaly cleansing white communities"

    "You can have a child with a negro woman as long as you dont keep it."


    And even worse.

    And I bet that you people would be posting the same stuff here if it werent for the rules.

    Since when is "Southern" a race or ethnicity?

Most people, the very mass majority of people do not accuse people of criticizing Obama because he is black. And yet people like to make it out as happening every single ****ing time some one criticizes Obama. In fact, your post is a good example of using race as a bludgeon.
    I don't think every liberal engages in this particular tactic, but the 'republicans only oppose Obama because he is black' charge is thrown out there over and over and over again. I got infracted for calling a race baiting troll out on it yesterday in fact. Perhaps its just the same handful of leftist trolls who use it, but they use. A lot.

    The race card is beyond overused, it is obnoxious and stale. And yes, it is essentially ubiquitous from folks on the left.
