Naw. No way. Clinton had two terms. Now he has his wife as the second most powerful person in the government after Obama. Plus, Bill Clinton is still calling the shots in the Democratic Party meaning that everything Obama does has to be approved by Clintons. That seems like three terms to me. Plus one term for Obama. Now you are asking me to be patient for one more term? I am not that big of a fool.

Now is the time to let the Democrats know that we are not going to take any more of their racist crap. If Obama gets re-elected he will know that another Libya will not be acceptable to us. Plus, Bill and Hilary Clintons will think twice if they want to control the government after Obama leaves office. But even more important is this: Romney will see what we are doing to Obama and he will think twice before dropping bombs in Africa. If Aunt Condi Rice is Romeny's VP which seems likely, she wll also be the next president after Romney. She is just as stupid as Obama and just as much if niot more of a house slave. So we need to teach her a lesson too. The bottomline is we need to teach all those house slaves not to mess with black people and not to mess with Africa. They are selling themsleves to the white power structure because they have black faces and know we will hesitate to criticize them. Heck, I did not criticize Obam for three and ahlf years, even AFTER he ignored the lynchings in Libya. Give a house slave like Obama an inch and he will take a mile. We kept quiet about all the stupid things he did in the first three and a half years. How did he repay us? He did so by telling us that he does not need the black vote any more becasuse he can play the Hispanic card. Plus, he can always play the "gay" card. LOL!

Obama is a fool. He cannot get half of the white and Hispanic vote no matter what. This is why he needs the black vote. We gave him 97% of the black vote and this is the ONLY reason he got elected in the first place. Without black support Obama cannot be president. Now that he has lost a small percentage of the black vote by lynching Qaddafi and allowing racial lynchings to go un-noticed in Libya he will definitely not get re-elected. It is that simple. Romney is leading Obama in ever nationwide poll. Plus, no president has ever been re-elected with an economy this bad. If Obama had been decent enough to get some jobs created in his frst two years that would have benefited both blacks and whites, he would not be in the mess he is in. But the man is not qualified to lead this country. He is in way over his head.

Look at that pathetic demonstration he had with Putin yesterday. Putin told Obama to kiss his backside. But, Obama is obviously too dumb to understand that Russia and China will not allow the USA to surround them in Syria and in Afghanstan and in Iran. Putin is a politiciioan too. He has to face the Russian voters. If NATO enters Iran or get too far out of hand in Afghanistan to threatren Pakitsan which in on China's border, they will attack the USA. Simple. No questions asked. And the USA will lose such a war because it is in Asia in their back yard and the USA would have to travel half way around the world to wage such a war. We CANNOT win there. It seems that Russia has already decided to intervene in Syria. They have a bunch of ships headed there now and have announced it. That is them drawing a line in the sand around that part of the world. And Obama looks like a dam fool thinking that it could possibly be any other way. Clinton and Obama are not thinking clear. And the world is too dangerous to have fools like those two in power. They are gamblers. But their entire foreign policy is too much of a gamble. It is time to have wiser heads run this country. Those two are insane. They ar crazy.

We the people need to speak up. Obama is too dumb to make the right decisions. And if we do not speak up he will ruin this country.

Excerpt:

Demographics of Brazil

Starting in the late 19th century, Brazil received substantial immigration from several other countries, mainly what are now the countries of Italy, Germany, Spain, Poland, Lebanon and Syria (mostly Christians), Ukraine, Japan, the People's Republic of China and Korea. Jewish people, mainly from Ashkenazi, but also from Sephardi origin, form small but sizeable communities, especially in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Porto Alegre.

The descendants of European immigrants, particularly the Germans, Italians and Poles, are mainly concentrated in the southern part of the country, in the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, and the most populous, São Paulo; these states have a large majority of people of European descent[citation needed]. In the rest of the country, most of the white population is of older Portuguese settler stock....

South

The South of Brazil is the region with the largest percentage of Whites. According to the 2005 census, people of European ancestry account for 79.6% of the population.[16] In colonial times, this region had a very small population.

After independence from Portugal (1822) the Brazilian government started to stimulate the arrival of a new wave of immigrants to settle the South. In 1824 they established São Leopoldo, a German community. Major Schaeffer, a German who was living in Brazil, was sent to Germany in order to bring immigrants. From Rhineland-Palatinate, the Major brought the immigrants and soldiers. Settlers from Germany were brought to work as small farmers, because there were many land holdings without workers. To attract the immigrants, the Brazilian government had promised large tracts of land, where they could settle with their families and colonize the region.

The first years were not easy. Many Germans died of tropical disease, while others left the colonies to find better living conditions. The German colony of São Leopoldo was a disaster. Nevertheless, in the following years, a further 4,830 Germans arrived at São Leopoldo, and then the colony started to develop, with the immigrants establishing the town of Novo Hamburgo (New Hamburg).

From São Leopoldo and Novo Hamburgo, the German immigrants spread into others areas of Rio Grande do Sul, mainly close to sources of rivers. The whole region of Vale dos Sinos was populated by Germans. During the 1830s and part of the 1840s German immigration to Brazil was interrupted due to conflicts in the country (War of the Farrapos). The immigration restarted after 1845 with the creation of new colonies.

The most important ones were Blumenau, in 1850, and Joinville in 1851, both in Santa Catarina state; these attracted thousands of German immigrants to the region. In the next five decades, other 28 thousand Germans were brought to Rio Grande do Sul to work as small farmers in the countryside.[38] Until 1914, it is estimated that 50 thousand Germans settled in this state.

Another immigration boom to this region started in 1875. Communities with Italian immigrants were also created in southern Brazil. The first colonies to be populated by Italians were created in the highlands of Rio Grande do Sul (Serra Gaúcha). These were Garibaldi and Bento Gonçalves. These immigrants were predominantly from Veneto, in northern Italy.

After five years, in 1880, the great numbers of Italian immigrants arriving caused the Brazilian government to create another Italian colony, Caxias do Sul.... They created many other Italian colonies on their own, mainly in highlands, because the lowlands were already populated by Germans and native gaúchos..

A significant number of Poles have settled in Southern Brazil. The first immigrants arrived in 1869 and until 1959, it is estimated that over 100,000 Poles migrated to Brazil,[39] 95% of whom were peasants.

I have been patient for three and a half years. I have put up with both those Clintons more than I should have done. I am mad as hecck by now and I want to see some blood. The best way to get rid of Clinton is to get rid of Obama. I will simply not buy all those lies and tricks that so many people want to buy into. We have a responisbilty to offer somethimg better to our children. We can do better than that crapp that Obama and Clinton are selling. And it takes a coward not to speak up now. Rommey will learn from this as much as Obama will. And if Obama lucks out and gets re-elected, he will remember that he cannot play the same old games with us. It is our duty to teach them a lesson. That is what democracy is supoose to mean. If we allow them to continue as they have done these past years, we will end up in World War III against China and Russia and we will not win. Clearly this does not call for "patience". This calls for diligence. And I take my citizenship duties seriously.

My ex-GF is from Madrid and has the Moorish/Berber look commonly found there (green eyes and all). Not all native Europeans (even those who can trace they blood lines back many generations) are 100% white, especially in southern Europe. You are more likely to find pure whites in Scandinavia or Rhineland (Germany, Belgium, Netherlands).
Berbers are still white. DNA analysis on Spaniardsvshows surprisingly little Berber/Arab admixture, despite hundreds of years of Islamic occupation. In part this because they threw they ass out durimg the Reconquista and Inquisition.

Brothas be trying to justify they lust for white Spaniards by talking this Moor foolishness. Listen, even the word "Moor" is racist. It's just a European umbrella term for Muslim foreignor; they never called themselves 'Moors'. It derives from a Latin word for foreignor, Moros.

Also, the Spaniards invented slavery (essentially inventing the white black divide) AFTER they canoodling with the 'Moors'. Face it - they white.

If you want a so-called "Afro-Latin", your best bet would be a mulatto from the Dominican Republic or PR.

Truth is, most of y'all just wants a whitely woman and feel better about it if she a Spaniard or Eye-Tayan you can pretend is part black.

Y'all are some lost mofos up in here. Don't need no cream in my coffe, you feel me?

Hey what's up? I commend you in wanting to spread the message at work. I'm in my last year of high school, & I had the same dilemma last year. I wrote articles every month in a social/cultural lens & did/do everything to raise historical awareness....
Anyways, I'll grown & evolved since then. However,I now feel comfortable enough to affirm my own afrocentricity/cultural pride without an institutionalized condition or approved time periodperiod. In other words, I speak on cultural issues at any point during the year (each month getting the same attention). I don't need a Black History Month to spread my Black pride, just as I don't need a Hispanic Heritage Month or Native American Month to showcase my Latino or Indigenous heritage.
Of course, that's my view for what it's worth. For many in the workplace, other ethnic groups won't show interest in the exploration of a particular culture (i.e. Black, Asian, Irish) unless it's during the month that societal institutions designate for it. So it's your call. Either way, great luck with your quest brother!

Black People
As a race, we like to dance around the truth. African-Americans are not the problem, we didn't turn our backs on Momma Africa. The same can't be said for our Spanish kinfolk. They don't identify as black, the sistas don't like brothas and vice-versa. But, feel the need to fake it when around AAs. I don't care how mixed so-called afrolatinos are, real black people could care less. Whitemen raped our foremothers, i'm tired of black people glorifying the sexual assault of african women. Do afrolatinos want to be black? Mulattoness is not blackness...Stop Playing! Spanish folk love to jabberjaw about Gringos and so forth...Shut Up! All the isms that african folk deal with can be traced back to Iberia(Spain & Portugal). White Supremacy, Colorism, Colonization. White Spaniards are gonna deal with the evil their forefathers created come hell or high water. The Spain Apologists need not waste time defending lies and damn' lies. I have no love for Spaniards and Arabs, all blackmen in the US don't bow down to Slave Barons.

ALL AAs ARE NOT MIXED....There are probably many who are--multigenerationally through slavery, but to say that ALL AAs are MIXED???....You know as well as anyone that is not true! There are more Afro-Latinos that are mixed than AAs...That is fact... Many of them come from Latin and Caribbean countries which are already filled with mixed people already.

The reason that AAs and Afro-Latinos are different is because of culture, not because of skin color or phenotype, etc... Culture supersedes many things.

I have just developed some respect for the anglos after reading this thread. I think anglos are superior to Latins and I think know why the anglos (germanic) are better organised and richers than Latins. They Let AA keep their ID and gave them a semi level playing field. Obama any one. Look at the big mess latins created among afro-latins. It is one big mess that they do not know whether they are going or coming. AA have a solid foundation on which they can build a strong nation if they so desire. Mean while "afro-latino" in the same family are fighting each other over who in the family is closer to white. Why would AA, as if they do not have theit hands full, want to bring the latin american mess into their community. I say stay clear of those people. They would not add anything of value to your community.
