Face it - you love it when black people fail. Your hate is mixed with glee because you love to hate.
The future of the entire human race is at stake because of your love of hating the rest of the people.
You technologically advance white world killers have a giant ray gun in space at the ready to pull your final Columbine.
There is that race card again. Conveniently ignoring that DumBama wouldn't have stood a chance at being President without white support.

I don't love when black people fail. I love when any Democrat fails. Exterminating liberalism, socialism, communism and dictatorship in this country is what's best for the nation no matter what race.

Your black hero was supported by the US Communist party during both his elections. He was recently praised by this same group for his attempted gun grab.

But to you, it doesn't boil down to issues or nefarious associations. It boils down to race--doesn't it?

Big govt. is all about slavery because it traps taxpayers into surrendering more and more of their money even if it is against their will.
that is the goal of true pure Capitalism which rejects all government involvement in Economical Matters and what I was getting at is the Confederates States were for Capitalism and Northern States were for Socialism and Lincoln and the Republicans were for Communism and just think Karl Marxs is the one that created the terms Capitalism, Communism, and Socialism and Karl Marxs Labeled US as a Society based on Socialism that was going to either progress toward Capitalism or Communism but what Karl Marxs calls a Hybrid form of Socialism which he says will fail and US is almost broke.

How Capitalism Works

by Julia Layton

In this article, you'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

Today, the economies of nations that are typically referred to as capitalist are in fact mixed economies -- they incorporate certain aspects of capitalism and certain aspects of planed economies. In pure capitalism, things like child labor laws, Social Security, anti-discriminatory hiring practices and a minimum wage have no place. Capitalism rejects all government intervention in economic matters.

An Unfinished Revolution: Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln

by Robin Blackburn

The impact of the American Civil War on Karl Marx, and Karl Marx on America.

Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln exchanged letters at the end of the Civil War. Although they were divided by far more than the Atlantic Ocean, they agreed on the cause of “free labor” and the urgent need to end slavery. In his introduction, Robin Blackburn argues that Lincoln’s response signaled the importance of the German American community and the role of the international communists in opposing European recognition of the Confederacy.

The ideals of communism, voiced through the International Working Men’s Association, attracted many thousands of supporters throughout the US, and helped spread the demand for an eight-hour day. Blackburn shows how the IWA in America—born out of the Civil War—sought to radicalize Lincoln’s unfinished revolution and to advance the rights of labor, uniting black and white, men and women, native and foreign-born. The International contributed to a profound critique of the capitalist robber barons who enriched themselves during and after the war, and it inspired an extraordinary series of strikes and class struggles in the postwar decades.

In addition to a range of key texts and letters by both Lincoln and Marx, this book includes articles from the radical New York-based journal Woodhull and Claflin’s Weekly, an extract from Thomas Fortune’s classic work on racism Black and White, Frederick Engels on the progress of US labor in the 1880s, and Lucy Parson’s speech at the founding of the Industrial Workers of the World.

Bottom line is that there is racism in America, but what everyone refuses to look at is what causes it. Look at statistics honestly, blacks make up about 13% of the population but they commit most of the crimes. They expect to be given other's places in the workplace and colleges JUST because they are black, even though others deserve the place more ( it is not our fault that there are more whites, asians... choose to work harder to get good grades... but all we hear is that there aren't enough blacks in certain places) Look at the FACT that all the best rated places in America to live with low crime have a very high percentage of whites, and all the worst places with the highest crime rates have an overwhelming percentage of blacks. Every time a black is caught committing a crime all we hear is that someone is racist, the gun laws are to blame, the community is to blame, the schools are to blame, poverty is to blame... How about THEY are to blame? How about their parents are to blame for not teaching them respect, morals, decency, and the value of human life, or even for not watching them and keeping them off the streets? Blacks hate whites for NOTHING we are doing today, they use slavery as an excuse because they have nothing else. Blacks were the ones who sold their own people into slavery, hispanics had slaves, and no white person here today had any slaves, but they still continue to throw this crap out every time.
For African American it's very disturbing to see the multitude of websites and reports that indicate that blacks commit most crimes in the US and abroad. The fact of the matter is most crimes committed by blacks is usaully against someone in the black community!! And it's usually in a impoverished area. And these areas are segregated from the other communities in the area.

Ask yourself this, what's the worst thing that someone has ever done to you??????(Think) Now I'll bet you that the person your thinking about is from your own race whomever it is. My point is most murders are commited by someone the victom knew on a personal level. And most people from the suburbs don't have personal relationships with people from the ghetto.

But what's scary is all these so called intellectuals are trying to paint blacks as a barbaric and murderous race. Saying that a “black” is 250 times more likely to commit a crime then a white. Ther are some crimes that blacks commit more then whites and vice versa! Most Crack Dealers are black, and Most Serial Killers are white?

Then I see a report that blacks commit 50% of the crimes in the UK? IMO the laws are enforced in the black communities more so then they are in the other communities. I grew up in a predominately white area. And I can't count all the times I seen white kids punch people out, steal, rob, buy and sell drugs. But I never see these kids arrested because laws aren't enforced in the suburbs. I know plenty of people who dealt drugs and never got their house raided because they lived in the suburbs. I know cops arrest suburban kids sometimes, but they don't concentrate their resources in those communities so there's a lot less arrests to report. My point is poverty=crime no matter what the race is.

To prove my point I pulled some crimes statistics in Russia where the elite media can't blame blacks for all the crimes.
In 1994 there was 2,602,700 crimes reported in Russia 32,300 of those were murders.
In the USA in 1994 there was 14,000,000 crimes reported and 23,200 of those were murders.

The reason why you still have multiple murders in a place where blacks are non-existent is because poverty is abundant. Plus, more white-collar crimes are committed in the US then violent crimes, but white collar criminals rarely go to jail. Even with all the Evidence against Kenneth Lay at Enron, he still hasn't been indicted yet. So my point is stop blaming blacks for all crimes, and start blaming poverty.

Why are blacks being seen as racists? because some have never attempted to get an education to get ahead in life and make something of themselves....so they are angry at the whole world because they don't have the energy to go out there and MAKE IT WITH GOOD HARD WORK. And those that educate themselves are happy and prosperous, as I have had the opportunity to work with some of the most professional in my profession and am very pleased to say and whole heartily believe those professionals are talented, good, honest and humorous and very fun to work with. These are my friends every bit as much as all my other co-worker friends.

Fool, you can't count to a trillion, you're too stupid.....lol
The government isn't giving black people anything we've haven't earned. And when systematic venues are design to keep black people from achieving or advancing, creating poverty, the country owe it the black communities to help rebuild it. Caucasian people have spent more money fighting against equality for African American in the past, more than it used to help. Think of all the money white Washington have wasted over decades with nothing but filibuster tactics. Spending millions of tax payers dollars over silly arguments.

Every program to welfare and others, ended up helping more white people than blacks.

Blacks have not only been a liability to whites throughout my life, but generations before me. How many trillions has the white man lost in public support of blacks, ruined neighborhoods and even cities, closed down businesses and increased costs for insurance and police and fire protection, decreased home and property values?

I guess that's why Thailand is tired of you crime ridden white sexual perverts, committing crime and spreading disease among their people! Taking advantage of those less fortunate people because you arrive there with a few more dollars huh? Tell me, how much money you've spent on sex so far there?

Now you're blaming black people for your unhappiness there too, are you?

Barack Obama is not the most powerful man on earth because he is a simpering coward. Name one thing this miscreant has done that could be interpreted as intelligent or beneficial to this country. This man is nothing more than a African communist. He has violated our constitution time after time, which is amazing since he is such a "constitutional genius". The man should be impeached for crimes against our country. He is an enemy of our country.
He gave health care to thirty million people and killed Osama Bin Laden. There's two. Any more softball questions? How is he a communist? Look up the definition. Specifically, how has he violated the constitution. There is nothing to impeach him on. Just more fantasies from the right.

Blacks are seen as racists because they are. As a white person of rank on the job, the blacks are lazy and indolent. they do not take their work seriously, when asked to work. they give a bunch of shit. I was even called a snowflake by one of them. One on one they are chickenshit, but like any tribe, you put them in numbers then they lie and hide and cheat and steal. Just let me call one a coon and see what happens to my job, but, when the superior heard the one call me that racist white term they all thought it was funny, blacks are racist, plain and simple, because they are lazy and stupid and because, in all pronbability their mother was 15 or 16 when they were born, all of the finest sensibilities are gone. Not all, mind you, but most. Not the real Africans either, they seem to be a pretty hard working, polite bunch, but the american black is mostly retarded, except the really educated ones, and I have heard racial slurs from them from time to time. result: BLACKS ARE RACISTS, they cannot compete against the whites in any arena, except the big dick and little brain arena for the men and the fat, big mouth, sloppy looking for the women.

I wouldn't be so hard on President Bush.

President Obama has created more private sector jobs. Helped small business. Improved health care.

America has been racist from it's inception. President Obama is not responsible for what you think your parents are responsible. Put the blame for your racist views where it belongs.

Are you disabled? I know that you have mental issues so perhaps you qualify. lol All kidding aside.

Healthcare for all is a cost cutting plan. It was originally a republican idea because it saves money. The reasons that the republicans want to stop it now is that Americans will like it and an African American has implemented it. Republicans know they will have a hard time recovering from the blowback once people find out how good it is for them. There are already signs of this at their town hall meetings this summer.
Obamacare will pay for it self as it helps to lower the debt according to the CBO.

Inbred pay your fare share and be glad that you can afford health care on your own. 30 million people could not before obamacare. Now they won't have to go to the emergency room when it is not necessary.

You stupid libs keep repeating the same tired rhetoric about how Obastard "created more private sector jobs, helped small business, and improved healthcare", but NEVER show proof of what you say.

Of course, people who live in a little place I call reality know you're full of shit which is the reason you NEVER show proof of what you say - because there is none. And why the last sentence in your post was an attempt to blame racism on the fact the Obastard is a FAILURE.

The 'race card' doesn't work anymore, it stopped working a long time ago. I know it, blacks know it, we all know it.
