    Re: Is Obama secretly a racist?

    How the **** is one supposed to know whether Obama is secretly a racist or not?? Should we ask a magic 8-ball? Consult a ouija board? Or are we supposed to use our fantastic powers of clairvoyance to learn the true nature of Obama's feelings on race??
    I'm a Tarte, what!! You want some of this??

    You are supposedly to draw your own conclusions based soley on his race .

    The irony here is that you have a group of people who are simply so bothered and threatened by the very fact we have a "other" in office, the one sure path is to label him a racist. As if this will then give them more free license to attack him for just about anything short of breathing. Take the birthers, their whole agenda is to simply believe that by the mere fact he is not legitimate to be President then they can remain safe and assured that this country did NOT elect an African American.

    It is somewhat amusing, and disturbing, to see a bunch of lily white fools become so overly sensitive about the tiniest of issues. For them EVERYTHING is about race, regardless of the merits. Was Obama racist for saying the police acted stupidly? Well let us change the scenario. Say a Irish President was asked the same question about a German police arresting a French professor in the same way. Take race completely out of the picture and you still have a police force that acted...stupidly for arresting someone who did not need to be arrested.

    He never said the police were racists did he, but he did however point out a very simple fact of life for minorities in America. As long as racial profiling exists, the question will always remain whether race was the issue. But of course these people, who are so sensitive to race issues (/sarcasm), wouldn't have a clue to the effects of systematic racism in America and it's legacy. These are the same people that think just because we (not them..ever) have elected an African American President, race issues are all in the past.

    Re: Is Obama secretly a racist?

    I don't think Obama is anymore of a racist than, say, the people who adamantly declare that they are not. No more racist than the person who started this thread. No more racist than the people reading and replying to this thread.

    All he can do, (and this goes for everyone I suppose,) for the sake of rightousness, is to keep it buried as deep as he can. (Which, I might add, he is doing a piss-poor job at. I found the Gates ordeal to be a perfect example.)

    I have long thought that he and Michelle are the type, when the lights are low, in the most secretive of moments, to talk about "whitey." But I certainly have no evidence of such so I must digress. I just know how people ARE (no matter what the SAY they are.)

    It will be decades, if not centuries before racism is dead and gone here in the US (if ever.) All sides. I think, underneath it all, there's racism in everybody in one form or another. The best we can do is realize it's worth, (which is zero,) and try to be better people. Maybe in 4 or 5 generations, it will truly be a thing of the past in every way.

    And was it your ouija board or your magic 8-ball that told you this?

    Re: Is Obama secretly a racist?

    Based on what?

    Being a black man and attending many, many black churches while growing up and as an adult I can honestly say that really is not true. Calling for the destruction of America and the White race are not typical of any Christian church, be it black or white.
    Reverend Wright didn't call for the destruction of America or the white race. He mocked what he perceived to be prevailing attitudes among whites with relation to political privilege along with the perceived ironies in our country's claims to moral superiority in spite of a long string of perceived human rights abuses. He did say "God damn America" as a play on the common phrase "God bless America", but there are multiple dimensions of meaning to that. That's about the closest he came to calling for the destruction of America. About whites; he stated we had some attitude problems when it comes to social justice and politics. In very strong terms, but hardly a call for destruction. Anyway, if pressed, I doubt he would insist that all whites fall under the category he disdains; but impassioned sermons don't accommodate particulars and exceptions.

    Note -- perceived. This isn't about what I think, and I don't want to make it about what I think.

    Re: Is Obama secretly a racist?

    No, Obama is not a secret racist .





    As the matter of the fact Obama has been an open and explicit racist for all his life, he has never made a secret out of that.




    The question is only the matter of the opinion of the overwhelming majority willing to close their eyes at the facts, no secrecy involved.



    The rule of the overwhelming majority is known to us as democracy, or in other words –the rule of the haters of the US. There is no secrecy or doubt in that.

    Well quite interesting you would say this. Do you believe this because you yourself take part in such discussions when no one else of color is around? Or do you suspect this for other reasons? Believe it or not, not everyone obsesses about race, gender, or ethnicity.
