If this had been a liberal college and they had done this to John McCain then nothing would have been said.

Republicans may think McCain won but going on National tv in front of millions of viewers from the US and foreign leaders and not one but twice declare that the US does not abide by the Geneva Convention and tortures prisoners. John McCain just gave every country in every war the green light to torture US Military POWS. If you think McCain won I disagree, A US Senator just verified that the US tortures POWS twice in the debate.

Did McCain just tell the World Bush should be charged with War Crimes ?

Yeah, something would have been said- it would have been the joke of the week for the liberal news media.

Still, if this really happened, it was in very poor taste and shows a tremendous lack of class.

Good Lord, I hope and pray that he's NOT.

I'm not crazy about McCain, but Obama's socialist ideas scare the heck out of me.

I read this same article, and it was from a Christian school of all places. But let white folks tell it, black ppl are just whining when we say there's still racism.

Trying to downplay the incident by saying if was McCain is the problem with some white folks thinking. The real life scenario is that it DIDN'T happen to McCain, it happened to Obama, and you can't really be certain what would or wouldn't have happened if it was the other way around. Address what actually happened instead of making up would be scenarios in your head.

True it doesn't mean the people who did it are racist. They knew they doing it would stir up a ruckus. They are just looking for a big laugh.

If socialism bothers you, what have you done to object, demonstrate or otherwise voice your fears, in view of our government socializing companies, and other acts of socialism, to the tune of some $800B, not including the latest plan of buying $800 BILLION of private assets? All done by the actions of Republican agencies of a Republican administration. If you have not gone to any trouble to object to these socialistic activities, I'll understand, if you are so mortified, so scared...that you are immobile.

How does it feel to be deselected by evolution? You hollar-dwellers have just not adapted well and are losing genetic dominance. Buh-bye.

Are you kidding me? Seriously! But there is NEVER a shock when there is anti black racism. America is a racist country. It was buildt on the foundation of racism so why should you be shocked?

Right. Anti-black racism is mainstream and goes unnoticed.

What nationality has not been enslaved before?
Why is racism allowed to flourish when all it breeds is seperatism and hatred?
Do we not all bleed red blood and eat meat/veges, breath oxygen?
We should stick together and not against oneanother merely because of color!
