In Obama era, have race relations improved?

Jul 29, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Boston.com

Ashley Ray, a white woman, hears more people debating racial issues. "I know a lot of people who really thought we were OK as a nation, a culture, and now they understand that we're not," she says.

All humans are actually the same 'race', scientifically speaking. Its racist white people try to make it as if humans are different. Skin colour and other minor variations are a result of minor environmental adaptations over thousands of years. Other than ssmall differences, humans are actually the same.

I am white myself from the UK and have studied genetics.

Duh !

Where the phouc did you come up with that B.S.

GOP southern Strategy....

*Duh... Nominate a Mormon with strong Ma. and Mi. ties .
*Duh ....Hold covention in Tampa a 50-50 swing state not considered southern anymore.
* Duh... V.P. choice will be a Northerner or a Cuban-Amer. not exactly Southern Strategy.

The only times the GOP had a Southern Stratgey was Bush twice.Even Nixon's was an off year elections such as 1970.

The Dems have used a Southern Strategy more often than the GOP.
* Carter '76 & 80.
* Clinton '92 & 96.
* Gore 2000
* DNC in Charlotte this year.

You ought to get your HANDLERS to come up with better talking points as that line is pure B.S.

Let me guess, you're conservative and a republican!!! Southern Strategy, it's the only thing you guys have in your sleeve to muster up votes for your outdated ideologies. Disseminating man made fears is all you have.
Outdated ideologies?? Like, work and jobs, saving, investing, private ownership, building and growing a business? Yes, of course.

And you believe that the government can take care of everyone!!!!!

LMAO

That's funnier than a fart in the space station.

Republicans have incorporated a southern strategy not seen before in the USA. Republicans are one fked up group of racist & bigots. I hope they all kill each other.
Are you now saying that the South isn't part of the USA?? The democrats have been the biggest racists, bigots and liars in the last 12 years, than any political faction in US History. Outside of Congress, the three most notorious opponents of school integration were all Democrats:
- Orval Faubus, Democrat Governor of Arkansas and one of Bill Clinton's political heroes
- George Wallace, Democrat Governor of Alabama
- Lester Maddox, Democrat Governor of Georgia

Who called in troops to enforce equal education right?? Republican President Dwight Eisenhower.

You're statement is further varification of the left hypocricy.

I guess it depends on what you mean by "race relations".

I think fewer people are overtly racist, but the real racists are very angry, very vocal and getting very desperate.

Topix seems to give them a place to congragate and complain about how hard it is to be white in America, but beyond that what they have to say and what they want America to become matters less and less with each passing day.

The answer to the question is no.

Has nothing to do with Obama but the answer is still no.

Well folks in November you have a choice to make, If you actually adore HUGE Government you have already made up your mind to vote for the Obama, But if you question the agenda of Big Government , Then you have a discussion to make now. If you believe that our public schools have been taken over by radical union members, if you believe our Government has been taken over by radical progressives, Then you have already decided to vote for Romney.

Yeah right !
Tell me Sharpton, Waters , Holder , Conyers,Clyborn , S.J. Lee and Ellison aren't racist.
Clyborn played the RACE CARD on Bill Clinton in '08 as well as J. McCain.
Any real world person knows neither Clinton nor McCain aren't racists.
Tell me that anyone who doesn't like " You didn't build it " is RACIST .
Same old RACE CARD players.
The only CBC Dem I've never heard play the RACE CARD is Charlie Rangle. His racial comments aren't disguised hate.
==========
Never heard any of them say or infer in any way that they are or think themselves superiour because of the race they belong to.

Louie Farrakhan might come close to being a racist but even he does not say blacks are superiour human beings because of the race they belong to.

It seems you don't know what racism means.

I didn't say superior .

What you LEFTY RACE BAITORS thrive on is that many whites hate others because of skin color. " Devils " as the NBPP calls them.

Bill Clinton called out Clyborn " I think had the RACE CARD played on me".

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2008/04/2...

Clyborn also played it on McCain claiming McCain reminded him of what went on in Birmingham in the '60s.

Hey thanks , I'm supposed to be a GOP RACIST and you claim I don't know what one is.......thanks.
