This happened during the election and now that Obama's numbers are slipping and more people oppose Obamacare than support it, race is brought up again as a tactic because there are no facts to support their stance anymore. It's really, really pathetic isn't it?
    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.

    Simple math.
    and that is the problem in a nutshell, they MULTIPLY....

    What, you have never heard of a republican calling names?
    Karl Rove is a master of manipulation when it comes to getting the
    "right" to accept labeling the left...

    I wish I had a dollar for every right wingnut who used the term "tax and spend liberal" and another dollar for the left's failure to respond with "tax and spend is better than borrow and spend".
    Both sides are taxing, borrowing, and spending....BOTH SIDES....

    But in this specific instance, it is the left bringing race into an equation that it wasn't in to begin with. See the difference?

    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.
    It is coming from the right for now. Lets go back and look at the seething far left during the Bush years. The names Colin Powell and Condolisa Rice were called on a daily bases. At least no one has called Obama a "house nigger" yet.

    It is fair to say both sides use race when convenient.

    Yessir, Yes it certainly is pathetic.

    Use of the race card at all times is pathetic, and so is the person who uses it.

    Problem is, liberals have a tendency to use the race card FOR others, which is why blacks have this sort of 'looked down upon' thing going on in the US.

    "Awww, poor black people, we'll give them affirmative action."
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Re: Do you believe that opposition to Obama is mostly based on his race

    To all those who voted "yes":

    What are you thinking? Do you honestly believe that the MAJORITY of opposition to Obama has to do with his race? We all know there will be a handful of racists against him, but the majority? 51% + of the opposition is only against him for being black?

    I don't think so. That is the most illogical and idiotic thing I have ever read on this board, even more ridiculous than the 9/11 truthers.

    Anyone who buys into the stereotype that most conservatives are racist bigots has absolutely no mental capacity for intelligent, reasonable, and rational thought. Obama's policies and programs clash with many conservative principles, and to say that the main reason conservatives disagree with him is because he is black is flat out ignorant, if not deceptive and dishonest.

    I'm glad to see the poll results, it gives me a chance to look and, at a glance, see who on DP was born with no cerebellum. Most of the "yes" voters were no surprise at all; one was someone I really thought had better sense though.

    His posts, especially of late, seem to me to be those of someone that has become very bitter.
