In his first months as president, Barack Obama has taken on some big problems - health care, the economic collapse, Iraq and Afghanistan - so it's no wonder there's heated debate going on.

Yeah, keep on crying "racism". It has become virtually a useless word. Yet some still are trying to get mileage out of it. How about printing an opposing view now Headlight, like Rush Limbaugh's?

As I've stated before:
I'm from Chicagoland.
Their Obama was known by the lower class
blacks as WHITE.
He is 60%+ white.
But he has a little color.
RACISM was brought about by the Democrats
so Obama could get elected.
Now he's black.
Maybe next election he will run as a WHITE man.
He was sworn in as Illinois State Senator on
the Quran.
That's because The Nation of Islam wanted
it that way.
Obama was brought up by his father who was a
Muslim and Obama was taught the same.
As you all remember he stated that this is
a Muslim country.
Now he will take away all the benefits all
you Deming LOSERS get.
That what he did in Chicago to the poor blacks.

YOU SAID IT YOURSELF. BY READING HIS STATEMENT BELOW, WHAT SHOULD WHITE PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THIS NOTHING FROM NOWHERE ELEVATED TO OUR HIGHEST OFFICE BY CHILDREN, MINORITIES AND PURPOSEFULLY BLIND MAINS STREAM MEDIA?

OBAMA SET THE TONE WITH HIS STATEMENTS! HE SAYS ONE THING IN PUBLIC AND THEN GETS CAUGHT ON TAPE SAYING WHAT HE REALLY FEELS. TAKE YOUR BS AND SHOVE IT. WE KNOW WHAT'S GOING DEAR.

WHY ALL CAPS? YOU GUESSED IT. WE ARE TIRED OF BEING LIED TO. WE ARE TIRED A FOOL WITHOUT MERIT RUNNING OUR COUNTRY. WE ARE TIRED OF LIARS.

Right-wing blogs still abound with charges that Obama's anti-white racism was reflected in a campaign reference to his own grandmother as a "typical white person."

More name calling and more wild claims that have nothing to do with reality. We apparently have a number of very paranoid people out there that are in desperate need of treatment.

Obama is the one who used the race card to sell his "most famous speech on race relations in America" to get MSM selected. He was then caught bashing conservatives as "clinging to their guns and religion" He started the debate.We shall finish. Name calling? Oh please. It is not too serious a crime. You've never called anybody a name Chris, have you? Paranoid? Isn't that "name calling" Chris? You're smart. You can do better than that.

did you even read the article? try reading it, maybe (doubt it) you will understand the author's viewpoint, instead of just puking your own.

the article speaks to race baiting by the right as a political tool, stirring up the deep seated racial hatred of middle and lower class whites. what part of this assertion is wrong, based upon the kinds if posts all ready put up?

its an excellent article, speaking truth to rational humans that choose to hear it. unfortunately, it's rare to see one so filled with race hatred, and xenophobia to admit to his/her affliction.

what in president Obama's speech on racism was untrue? what about his statement regarding people, ""clinging to their guns and religion," as you paraphrase. what about this statement rings untrue?

racism is based upon lies, distortions, innuendo, and the use of social marginalization to discount a person, or people based solely on their race or ethnicity. what president Obama said, in the examples that you site are not untrue in any form or fashion.

In the elections yesterday, even the black districts voted against the democrats and made this statement about Obama.
Whether you are a black American or a white American, nobody pushes us around like a bunch of fools, not even Obama.
Americans are funny like that.
Obama is learning a lesson he would have known had he been brought up as a patriot instead of a Mao loving communist miscreant.

any reputable proof to authenticate this irrational right-wing dogma designed to stir up the cream-filled masses? hmmm sounds strangely like the jist of the article, instead of fomenting dissent with racism, h8tman, the heinous hentai, is fomenting dissent with uncorroborated political dissembling, and distortions. very patriotic indeed.

Let's see:

During the campaign, leftist pundits constantly implied or stated directly that objection to Obama's candidacy was due to white racism.

During the current healthcare debate, Carter stated that the vast majority of opposition was due to racism.

MSNBC went so far as to crop the clip of a black protestor carrying an AR-15, because it detracted from the racial angle they were promoting.

It would seem that race baiting as a political tool is widely used by the left as well.

point one: do you truly NOT Believe that there exists many white americans who disvow his candidacy and now presidency based solely upon his pigmentation? come on, at least pretend to be unbiased for an instance.

point two: jimmy carter was referring to the constant unprofessional, disrespect of the office of the president by some members of congress and some of their constituency based upon his race. again what is untrue about this contention?

point three: all i watch is MSNBC or CNN i saw that clip ad nauseum on both cable channels.

point four: why is it called, "the race baiting of the left," when left center advocates point out that race baiting exists from the likes of karl rove and company. he and his advocates aren't trying to say racism exists, they are trying to foment the fear of middle and lower class whites by constantly questioning our elected presidents state of birth, his college qualifications, his qulaificatins to even be president. tell me, what part of that cynical, political strategy is NOT mired in racist fear?
