Sometimes the angry fit in perfectly. So if you, kid Shaleen, are the one who isn't fitting in, perhaps it's time for you to get out?

I think it is astounding that a black man in this country can discuss color constantly and be called a leader and a liberator. But if a white man discussed color he is labeled a Racist, an Evil black hater!!! Hmmmmm how is that?

For me, it's not even the company he keeps (well...it is to some degree) it's his lack of experience. Why are'nt people getting that. And if you don't like him, you're racist. I would vote for Colin Powell in a heartbeat. STOP THE INSANITY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!
People "aren't getting that" because the exact person we need for president now is one who has no experience taking bribes from Chinese Communist Diplomats like the Clinton Family.

What we need is precisely someone WITHOUT the experience our past few political leaders have had.

I'd vote for Colin Powell too, but he ain't running. Main thing I don't like about Obama is his extreme liberalism.

I could, but I won't. If you, in the past, haven't taken the time to read articles on his background and aspirations, I'm not going to dig them up for you. And no, I'm not scared of his color, but I'm scared of his agenda, and any reasonable white person should and many are now. Thank you Rev. Wright!!
I've read plenty of articles on his background and aspirations, including both his books. The only places I've seen anything about slavery reparations is on hate-filled, fear-mongering, completely non-credible websites.

So it's still boiling down to the fact that you made an unsupported assertion, and then you expect that it's your critics' job to disprove your statement. sorry, but that's not how a debate works. When you're challenged, you need to defend yourself, or you have no credibility.

Blacks will never completely understand whites and whites wil never completely understand blacks.

But I must say that over 100 years of BS this country has put blacks through can't be fixed over night when slavery, Seperate but Equal, and The Jim Crow laws was over.

If it took over 100 years to break down and destroy the black man, it may took over 100 years to fix.

There we go, Colin Powell, perfect example. I would vote for him above anybody, and he's black.

As another white-American, I just politely request that you shut up. "Fit in?" What is this, high school?
People, who think that criticizing the U.S. is some strange mortal sin in which the person criticizing should leave the country, need to open their minds a bit. Blind patriotism is the stuff dictatorships are made of. The ability to protest, be angry, criticize and fight to change is what makes this country great. The fact that we don't have to match up to the status quo and that we can challenge those in power is a critical part of who we are as a nation. So the Pastor said dumb things, so do many evangelical pastors (Falwell and Dobson, for example). I am white and I am mad at the close-minded mob mentality of so many critics of Obama in the U.S., and I'm not even an Obama supporter!
Good to see open-minded people on the post. The idiots that you speak of are like sheep being led to slaughter. They will be the first to line up for the chip implant and complain when all hell breaks loose. People need to wake up and get over race because we all are nothing in the eyes of the elite.

Not fix, how about just teaching a man to fish and not giving it to him?

You are appointed to positions, that you may or may not desrve, you are given freebies because of your whining, you constantly vote for a party that has done nothing but use you for over 50 years, and you expect to be treated differently because of your heritage. This is America - a melting pot. If you can't fit in then please get out. Many other Americans who share your heritage have had to make the same choice. We all have, no matter where our forefathers came from. It is just that some groups, who have been just as persecuted, have made the transition in a much more orderly and mature manner without blaming others for their plight. Perhaps a good psychiatrist for group therapy....
Now I realized there were indentured servants, but no group of people were dragged here and made slaves - AND America just softened up in the 1980's. But it is still here - by your comments. I did read the article to see what what said that made you so fearful, but it was nothing. You are just a jerk who makes Pastor Wrights comments sound a little more relevant.
By the Way - that was a very intelligent article.
