    Wrangling Racism: What's Wrong With Endorsing Obama Because He's Black? via magazine.good.is

    Morgan Freeman said--you can look this up on youtube also--Morgan Freeman said, "that America has not had a black president yet" stating Obama wasn't fully black. BET(Black Entertainment Television) appointed during the first 2008 election Obama was like Malcom X -- After Obama said he was like Martin Luther King... BET CEO said that Obama was not delivering the message the Black community has strive for in the past years and was not supporting Obama in 2008.

    Bill Cosby thinks Obama hasn't been given a fair chance... I agree with that to the extent but it aggravates me that Obama blames his screw-ups on everyone else. Oprah was not sure if she was wanting to support him... but like Bill Cosby she thinks maybe he could do better the second time.

    During the recession it appeared that Obama lost faith in the public because of everyone was wanting to see his identification... Labling him a terrorist and worse things. It still a popular accusation today, that Obama is from Africa...

    Obama has finally said he was sorry and that he has not been a perfect president in the first debate he appeared in.

    There is many reasons people are not voting for Obama, that are not because he is black.

    If I was voting... I would vote for Romney. Because race aside ... USA needs more progressive strategy that would bring USA money and get USA out of the "rut" we are in. Obama thinks increasing taxes would work, it would not... Rich people are who make corporations and corporations apply jobs, real jobs... Not jobs that are flipping burgers.
    When you see that unemployment is up... Its not referring to the ability to find a minimum wage job -- Its reffering to find a career job.

    Even congressmen have said -- Unemployment is STILL up... And it is... its impossible to find a job that is a career-fortified, full-benefit job. I know a few people that have college degrees and they are working at Target, Walmart, and the public Library. People have turned to the military because not able to find a career... An even the Military is getting full.

    Its not at all cause he is black... That whole racial card, evenly Obama been told to not use it cause -- It pisses people off. There is 100+ things Obama has done wrong and saying it would be just racism... Would piss off many more people.

    Well said If any whites say anything about Obama they are raceis. Obama is just a sorry president and his race has nothing to do with it.

    Laugh at Donald Trump's Insanity, But Call it What it Is: Racism via magazine.good.is

    Your post has only one valid point -- and that's that 2012 is much better than any other time in history for blacks. Which is what makes it so baffling that blacks continue to cry and whine about racism. It only exists in tiny amounts and that fringe will always be there. The same way there is a fringe element in all sections of society. But, instead of just being above it -- we continue to hear this crap about "Oh, you're a racist". Enough already. Blacks are the only segment of this country that bring this crap up ALL THE TIME!!! You rarely hear any other race talk about it, even though I'm sure it exists in some form of them, too. Why? They don't play the victim card like blacks do. (Or at least most) I happen to work with two black guys that openly talk to me about how embarrassing it is that blacks continue to play the race card. Lastly, if white guys voting all for Romney, what the hell are 99 percent of blacks voting for Obama???!!!! When half the blacks vote for the white guy over the black guy -- give me a call. Till then, quit your nonsense.

    Exactly I never think about Obama until the blacks keep bringing it up. I just know he is one sorry president.

    Who cares what color he is? HE SUCKS AT HIS JOB. So bad, in fact, that not even a single Democrat has voted for his budget plans, in 3 years and 6 months and counting. That, my friends, isn't leadership. He couldn't get macaroni and cheese to come together.

    Racism is what GOT him elected - undeniable fact - but even that won't work twice. The 95% of blacks who voted for him last time have dwindled quite a bit. Why? Because once you're in office, the rubber has to meet the road.... and all Obama did was slam it in reverse.

    As for Daniel's delusional comment, he can hammer away on that keyboard til baby Jesus comes home, but he's obviously blind to the fact that it was Republicans that drafted, driven and brought every civil rights amendment in history. All the Democrats ever did was develop a strategy to re-enslave them: "Free crumbs for life, as long as you don't ever dare try to bake your own cake! Just keep voting Democrat and we'll be sure you get your scraps." THat sure as hell isn't freedom.

    But this isn't about racism; this is about money. Thinking it a good deal that the government should take it, waste 3/4 of it and give 25% back to the citizens - REGARDLESS of who ends up with it - is just plain ignorant. Name one thing ANY government has done better and more efficiently than the private sector. It'll never happen. Why? Because compensation for government workers is in no way tied to efficiency or outcome. No incentive, whatsoever, to do a great job. If you don't believe me, just look at everyone from the DMV to the guy who just blew 6 trillion and has absolutely nothing of value to show for it. The more the government takes, the less ALL of us have, to buy from each other; to create and sell to each other; to start our own businesses; to take care of our families; and yes, even to GIVE to each other.

    This has nothing to do with race; it has to do with WASTE. It was nice having our first black president; all of America was proud of that, myself included. But next time, post up a GOOD one, because this one has been a complete and utter failure. All talk, no walk. He's an overhyped community organizer who has never built or run anything in his life... and it shows.

    Every now and then, American can afford the luxury of a bit of irrational idealism; this is most definitely not that time. All we can't afford right now is to tell government to get out of the way so we can fix the balance sheet and work on the bottom line.

    Obama's race is what got him elected in the first place. Who ever hear of Obama before he ran for president? He had very little experince and has shown that in office The fact that our national debt went from 10.6 million to 16 trillion in 4 year should tell you something. That is a cold hard fact. With 4 more years in office we will be bankrupct and where will all the unemployed be along with the 46.2 million people in poverty. Folks we need a change.
