    I think what he said can apply to Blacks/Africans in Europe as well as US.
    Difference being inside Europe they have now been tied down virtually by reliance on the state and have no incentive to get off the dole (This also applies to a very large population of whites as well in N)

    Either the word Nigger is wrong period or if some blacks can stand calling themselves that, it does not matter if someone else does.

    Only the US could go all feral over an actuary argument.

    Umm. No it is not. Some black folks use that word because they have taking it back from the white males that enslaved em. If you cannot understand that? Not my problem. I do not agree with the word but do understand the point.

    It is kinda like some gay folks have taken the hate term faggot back.

    Ermm, yes it is.

    Its a stupid cop out. Either the word is wrong or it is not. Don't distinguish a difference depending on what colour the person is who says it.

    And i use the term fag .... alot ... o.O

    On this board, I think most of the opposition is partisan. He's a liberal Democrat who ran on a platform of expanding the scope of government in specific areas and won.

    IMO -- too much of the dissent is hyperpartisan and doesn't help conservatives as much as they think because moderates and independents tend to be moderate independent thinkers who like to check out the facts, listen to different views, then decide on an issue.

    You can read between the lines on a few posters and sense that maybe they're more upset about the color of his skin, but it's mostly partisan opposition on DP.

    Now, go to Free Republic -- yikes!

    On another Conservative leaning board -- the opposition is 50/50, partisan/racial. But I'm not saying Free Republic or this other board are representative of conservatives at all. I honestly don't know. I'd say most of the racial stuff comes from the far-right. It's disappointing to see several people on Fox fueling that--Beck very overtly, others more subtle.

    I wasn't aware of it at first, but over the past sixth months, I've encountered a number of people who think Obama's victory is all about white guilt. They see every appointment or nomination of a person of color by Obama as affirmative action--an under-qualified person getting a leg up because of their skin color. This is pretty disturbing since the people they're referring to are highly qualified and accomplished professionals.

    I guess the first thing we notice about a person is the color of their skin, then what they're wearing and how they talk and act. We all make judgements pretty quick in our daily lives -- it's just odd, for example, when Obama names his new pick for surgeon general to see people not even bother to check her extensive credentials before making assumptions about Obama's reasons for picking her. Again, that really doesn't go on here at DP. But I encounter it enough to know it exists in certain places.

    Most moderate, imo, are no "moderates" at all.

    I don't either. But what does that have to do with opposition to Obama mostly being based on his race? Nothing, that's what. So I ask for proof and this is your response? So your statement has no credibility if this is your "proof".
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    By looking out for them, you really mean taking care of them instead of teaching them to take care of themselves. Blackdog gets it, and oh yeah, he's black (which is a minority the last time I checked). Instead of holding people accountable for their actions, it's far better to coddle them and make them feel "special" right?

    Double standard anyone? Either it's OK or it's not OK.
