I Can't understand all the hate in the USA,its not like this in Canada. I also don't understand how the USA could elect a man that has no experience at all. What has this guy ever done? It looks like there will lots of problems before Jan 20 th comes. The whole world is watching and wondering as the other countries all look up to the USA.

Boy, talk about a one sided thread. Every since Obama got elected most black Americans, think they shouldn't have to do their jobs. Many have turned against their coworkers of different races as well.I don't think it is going to be the free ride they think it is. As far as these supposed incidents with white people, acting out attrocities, like those mentioned at the top, I'd say those incidents are mild, compared to the attrocities black people do to whites everyday. Hell, they use guns to do their bidding. Yeah... too bad... so sad.

AP is the least reliable of any news service. AP is trash. AP is slimy, stinky smegma. AP is nauseating.

Why the hatred? well lets see people do not know how to be accepting and live civil among each other, that is one of the primary reasons. Second of all many do not know how to forgive and forget, they drag grudges generation after generation.

Yes, the AP does have that effect on some people. Can't even say why. Several years ago I just got tired of their overly edited presentation and refused to read any more of their print graffiti.

As far as I'm concerned they can rot in H-E-L-L.
Just trying to be neighborly with that comment.

There are at least two others who agree with you. Worrisome!

Can you define 'civil war', please. I am familiar the Wikipedia definition of civil war. I am just wondering what you think will specifically constitute civil war...using the Wikipedia definition, if you wish. Just curious?

I will not respond to your answer with nonsense. If any other poster does respond to your response with nonsense or criticism, ignore them.

Pretty much the same as Lincoln who was a state legislator and one term congressman. Correct me here if I'm wrong, but Lincoln did OK. Despite his thin resume he was obviously the right man for the job.

Obama is a professor of Constitutional Law so I doubt he'll trash it like the current occupant who called it "a goddamn piece of paper."

Hate is a meme. At least Canada has laws to keep hate from spreading around like more positive memes do.

In the town in which I live there has not been any cross burnings, school children chanting or homes being burnt.
Where do they get thing news. I haven't heard of any on the television.

Is America still acting like little sore losing, bratty kids?

Well I am just a dumb white* beer drinking, maple syrup loving Canadian but if I was an American I would have voted for Obama. Do not care if he is black,white,red,yellow or Barney the purple dinosour. Will he do a good job, time will tell but hard to do any worst than the last guy. If anything Obama should send GWB a thank you card cuz he is one reason Obama won bigtime.
I beleive McCain is a good man and I did admire the way he stood up to some radicals at some of his rallies and took the higher road.
Two good men, but one was leading a party that was past its best before date.

Do you like your freedoms?

If the racist idiots keep carrying on this way, we will see some of those freedoms gone. I doubt Obama will tolerate it much. I wouldnt either.

Fifteen hours after this article is posted it has received only 29 comments. Three of those comments are given by this poster. Only a handful of the other posts are anti-Obama or anti-black in content. Pffft!

The AP spoke, the few people who noticed simply yawned.

Responsible, professional journalism is welcome and refreshing. People want and need broad coverage news as a way of communicating with and understanding the cultural environment of day-to-day living. But people do not need the puffy, racist monotony proffered by the likes of Jessee Washington, Errin Haines, Jerry Harkavy, Jay Reeves, Johnny Clark, and 'researcher' Rhonda Shafner. AP reached the level of tabloid nastiness long, long ago. Yet, the downward spiral continues.

God Bless America! Only in this great country can an entire news organization make a complete ass out of itself and continue to function in the vacuous regions of random stupidity.

Only th Holy Bible and the Koran can measure up to the AP's lack of decency and outright hatefulness. Go to H-E-L-L, AP. And don't come back!

You overflow with hate and ignorance.Do you really think we should let people like you decide whats best for this country? The people of America spoken, we are not all black, muslim or terrorist. You lost, get over it.
