    It's not racist to say that black people aren't good enough to succeed on their own merits, so the government has to mandate racial quotas and set asides, known as Affirmative Action and other policies, the deny equally qualified white people an equal opportunity for employment.

    Just ask any Lefty.


    Until they run a cartoon of Obama as a lawn jockey with giant lips, sputtering sentence fragments, under a heading like, "House Nigger," like they did without a peep from Democrats when it was Condi Rice and Clarence Thomas, I will not take seriously anything they have to say about Obama being merely compared to a monkey in some really indirect way.

    Please.

    If it was okay for one, it's okay for the other. If it wasn't racist for one, it isn't racist for another. The people who cry 'racism', are those that think a black man should have different rules applied to him. In other words... racists. I really see no other way to describe the attitude that we should treat a black man differently than a white man.
    No offense intended but that's the most retarded jibberish I've ever seen you spout. The people who point out racism are the people who are aware that Black people have had a liiiiitle different experience in the history of this country from white folks. And that symbols like say, a burning cross, a noose, a monkey have been used for a long time to attack, to threaten, to belittle and to insult black people, and the use of them is still entirely inapprorpriate. See how this works?

    If there was a political cartoon of a monkey hanging from a noose in front of a burning cross on the whitehouse lawn, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of you people saying that it just means that Obama is "Choking" by not paying enough respect to the Christian religion. And that there's nothing racist about it at all. And if you see anything about it, you yourself MUST be racist. Such an ignorance of history may not be inherently racist. Perhaps it's just dumb.

    No, I don't see how that works, thankQverymuch. Now I don't remember my infancy, but I do remember as far back as 4 and I have absolutely no recollection of anyone being a slave. I am pretty sure my friends don't have any recollection of being slaves either. Now, as I said, I can't really account for the 4 years preceding my earliest recollections but I feel safe in betting my right nut that that those 4 years were not that drastically different. So yeah...unless all the blacks I know grew up in some alternate America where the South won the war while I was left behind in this America, I don't really see how that works. My guess is that it doesn't.

    Truly epic performance piece. Entitle it "Hyperbole" and go back to your day job. Theatrics aren't in high demand these days.

    We got a black guy as President, if the rumors about his birth in Hawaii are proven true.

    We got a black US Supreme Court Justice.

    We have black Senators.

    We have black Congressmen

    We have a black governor.

    We've had two black Secretaries of State in a row.

    One of the richest women in the world is self-made...and black.

    Blacks have won Oscars, Grammies, Heiseman Trophies, and probably everything else.

    Blacks have their own TV networks.

    We have black corporate CEO's.

    Blacks have decorated Wheaties boxes.

    Black astronauts.

    Black generals and black admirals, and black Tuskegee Airmen.

    Black cops.

    Black firemen.

    Black firewomen, I suppose. Never seen one, but I bet they're out there.

    Black doctors.

    Really, one can't name a niche in the public fabric of America that doesn't have it's share of successful black people in it.

    The only place racism is known to still exist is the NAACP, the KKK, and the Democrat party.

    I'd say for all intents and purposes racism is over in America, and it's not racist for anyone to compare the lame cockamamie plans Obama is cooking up with something a chimpanzee couldn't do better by randomly pulling things out of a hat.

    So no, it's not racist to make that comparison.

    Just when are you people going to stop seeing race in everything you do?

    When are you going to realize that a white guy with a job isn't a racist just because some black guy doesn't have that job?

    And, here's the big one, when are you people going to realize that since racism is institutionalized only in the NAACP, the KKK, and the Democrat party, it's no longer the business of government to get involved?

    When are you people going to realize that if Joe doesn't like someone, even if the only reason is because one of them is black and the other isn't, then Joe isn't required to associate with him if he doesn't want to? Even if that means Joe doesn't have to hire him.

    The Fourteenth Amendments refuse the government the power to discriminate.

    Private actions in the matter are not covered by the Constitution and thus not subject to federal law.

    No. Not racist.

    PETA would be all upset at the hint that someone might harm an animal.

    The tree huggers would mourn the incineration of the corpse of their dearly departed beloved tree.

    The global warming freaks would be screaming about the threat the cartoon publicizes about increased CO2 levels.

    The conspiracy theorist types would be talking about how the whole cartoon shows the unreliability of the Secret Service it's collusion with the Secret Masonic Cabal to get close to the White House, and thus the President, to dig a tunnel into the secret PNAC War Room and mark the path with a flaming beacon.

    And the feminists would be saying that the noose is a symbol of the neckwear of the dominant oppressive male chauvinist society.

    Success does not equal no racism. Just because blacks are successful does not mean that other races don't look down on them simply because of their skin color. I hear racist comments all the time in regards to every race from all races. It constantly shocks me to hear it so open and I have gone more than a couple times head to head with someone who makes such ignorant comments.

    If you claim racism is over in America either you ignore it or just don't want to admit it.
    Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?

    Honest to God most of the racist comments I've heard have come from race baiters like Al Sharpton, black musicians, & black comedians. At this point I honestly think blacks are more interested in the color of their skin than anyone else.
