Who are you kidding?
Texas is one of the most backward, redneck, inbred states in the country.
Now get back to your KKK rally, or whatever it is you cowboys do down there.
Geez.....Getting a little firey there aren't you Tony The Tiger. Since when did Conneticut become Texas, or are you just that dence?? Once again, now pay attention Captain Dipshit..........A vote should be based on the quality of the candidate, not the color of ones skin.

BoBo...you are having a difficult time following the conversation. FFS was commenting on the fact that you posted about Texas, painting it as some great land of opportunity where Black folks should be satisfied with the way they have been treated through the years. It had nothing to do with you being from Texas, as you clearly are not.

However, this is irrelevant. In fact...I don't even recall anywhere where Lovie or anybody said that they voted for Obama strictly on the color of his skin, so I'm not entirely sure why you are so quick to attack. And once again, as I said before, you are completely minimizing the massive social impact of the American electorate voting an African American into office. If you don't think that this is a momentous occurrence in our country, and cause for many Black Americans to become emotional, you need both a history lesson and a reality check.

And cool it on the name calling. It makes you sound childish.

UUUUHHHHHHH..........Okay, obviously you and FFS are related, the same person or life partners. The name calling was not started by me. Never once did I mention anything about this not being a momentous occurrence, for black Americans not to be proud or whatever you're trying to shove on me. Oh yeah and when I said anything about Texas being a great land of opportunity or black folks being satisfied(oxymoron)with anything please point that out to me again, because I can't recall or find those statements. You guys can't go crazy or run wild now just because Mr. Obama is going to take office in January. It's going to be a mess, not because of him, but because of people such as yourself who now feel as if you've been held back for soooooooooo long and now you're " gonna get us back. Kind Sir.

First off, no I'm not related to FFS. It actually is possible for more than one person to disagree with you without being related. If someone called you a name I apologize. I didn't realize somebody else did it too. I suppose that makes it acceptable to digress to their level. More importantly to the conversation though...I don't recall hearing any African Americans discussing plans to "go crazy or run wild" or "gonna get us back." There is no us vs. them going on here. It's a simple matter of our country putting a black man in office when just a short time ago that would have been impossible. No, I haven't been held back for "sooooo long"...I am white. But even as a white man I am horribly offended by statements like "black folks being satisfied (oxymoron)." I beg you once again...read a history book.

Mike, I don't think you are listening to what BoBo is trying to say.

WTF does your comment have to do with what I said? Or, was it your pathetic attempt at trying to be witty?

Fool.

No, don't know Mike, but at least he can speak with a modicum of intelligence.
