This fool is making the election appear to be a race issue. I feel it is not. It is an issues race. If you wish to get technical...Mr. Obama is 50% white and 50% african american.
Keep an eye on the issues you like/dislike not skin pigmentation.Fool.

another odd thing: the 'muslim slander'. so what? religion is now a "bad" thing? would he be acceptable if he was Roman Catholic? it got JFK elected...
and for race: if you go by the system used by many governments, even by ancient biblical hebrew reckoning, it's matriarchic. meaning, you are the race of your mother's people--he's not a black candidate, by the reckoning of MANY of today's nations and customs, he's white. so now what do we attack? his vice president?
oops. wrong candidate...
this may be what perplexes many other nations about the USA's goofy prejudices.-O.

We are living in dangerous times
it is sad that ignorants of racist
people that live in this community
are allowed to act in this fashion,
to replace a sign because it has obama name with a flags that represent nothing but their racist beliefs is sick. For those who are afraid of a black man taking office relax, it was your four fathers who got us in this shit. and now because it makes sense
majority will rule.

Wow Beverley. The flag is racist how???

It is used without permission by the ignorant. It is slandered by the ignorant. The flag represents the Southern way of life.

The North made all the money selling slaves-not the south. Slave ships sailed into Northern ports. The only reason "Honest Abe" even considered abolishment was as a measure to hurt the South financially.

"Honest Abe" has been quoted as saying the negroes cant live with the white man because they will take jobs meant for whites.

"Honest Abe" is another fake public school hero.

Re: gooney's comment. Um...last time I checked, the South had more slaves and they were actually brought into southern ports, not northern ones. The South relied heavily on slave labor to produce products, and the Confederate flag became recognized as a sign of rebelion by the south. It also became recognized as a symbol by those greatly affected by Slavery...and they are hardly ignorant. That flag may have indeed represented the southern way of life, but it is also used by hate groups which promote discrimination.

Which ports?

The Yankees were busy trading rum and molasses for negro slaves. They had no problem at all selling the slaves to southerners and making a hefty profit in doing so. For them to pretend that thay are somehow ethicaly superior to the "simple southerners" is hogwash.

The only reason they wanted to abolish slavery is to hurt the South financially. They didn't give a damn about a negro in chains.

Slavery was a much smaller issue to the Southerners that public school would have you beleive.

Southerners felt that there were things worth fighting for. One was defending itself against a government that did't care about it or it's people. That's obvious by the attempts by the Yankee Government to tax the Southern populace into bankruptcy. These certainly sound like things worth fighting for to me. It's shameful these groups have adopted the Battle Flag and portray it as a hate symbol.

It has become a symbol

Why put McCain's name into this JPS. Are you saying he is a racist??? The reason we still have race issues here is that the blacks won't let it die. United Negro College Fund, Miss Black America, BET tv channel, affirmative action ect!!!!. If whites tried to do something like this it would be plastered on all tv stations. Why do I continue to pay for something that happened hundreds of years ago. All whites in America were involved in slavery and most today are tired of hearing about it. You can't honestly say that the Democrats don't play the race card during every election.

Yes, I should.

I would certainly reveal the facts to the ignorant.

They would never beleive me because it is just so much fun to blame a Southerner(read whiteman)for all of black America's societal ills.

After all.....the white man imports the cocaine so blacks can be hooked....the Koreans run all liquor stores so the blacks can be drunks.....

Blah,blah,blah. There are white drunks and crackheads too.

Gooney, do you chose to do crack or drink? Your choice, no one hooked anyone on crack...it was their individual choice to do it. So if you’re going to be a History Teacher than be one, literally get a degree and become a high school teacher, teach the youth of today, save a young life, teach them right from wrong. Stop being a racist poser, your better than that.

Umm, and you still don't prove how "honest abe" was a freind to the black man. You compassionate and ignorant whites fall for this all the time. He didn't care about any black people.

What for?? So they can come work at your fastfood restaraunt? So they can cut your grass? Blacks make the world go 'round and the mexicans and indians can't do a thing about it. You put us in this situation in the first place. Look at how many white men want to impregnate black women.

I'm pretty sure we have done that for 400 years or more. What is it that inflames the flannel wearing citizens??

This is a victory for blacks who have been waiting for years. This triumph says we are capable and want what is rightfully ours.

Now, there will be white maids in washington.

Is this what upsets the racists on this forum.

WATERMELON AND FRIED CHICKEN JOKES are not welcome.
