bottlecap--"Funny, I never associated J.C. Watts and Alan Keyes with being very rich. Steven A. Smith?? Never heard of him."

J.C. is working for an investment firm in addition to a Congressional Pension. Keyes is making big money on the "lecture" circuit. Steven A. Smith is an NBA analyst who in his free times spouts the same right wing BS on hate radio. The point is that they put personal greed and helping the rich get richer ahead of both racial justice and economic justice, and attack Affirmative Action and any other way of helping blacks have an equal chance to have the blessings they do.

"And, black people in the United States, have it better, by far, in the US than any country I can think of,"

IF true, and that's very highly doubtful, it's still a piss-poor excuse for the injustice and inequality in this nation which is SUPPOSED to believe in equality.

"Ben Carson, and many other black Americans have made because of the goodness of America and personal hard work ,"

Lie. If this America is so "good," why do MILLIONS of black people work extremely hard and still live in crushing poverty. No, there is FAR more to Carson's story--opportunities DENIED to most poor people and minorities, a great deal of luck. Do you really think the average black kid from Detroit gets to go to Yale?

"and those who have suceeded need to be commended."

Getting stinking rich isn't "succeeding," he should be commended for what he has done to help others...and harshly criticized for what he does to OPPOSE helping others, and throwing up roadblocks to equal opportunity and justice.

"What IS hurting the black community, GREATLY, is being forced into a one-party system"

Lie. NOBODY is forced to do anything. Black people CHOOSE overwhelmingly to vote for Democrats because the agenda of the GOP is against equality, against justice, against education for their kids, against working people being treated (and paid) fairly, against access to health care for the needy, one could go on and on. The GOP has intentionally embraced Reagan's "southern strategy" and has to accept the good with the bad. Yes, it gained the votes of racist voters in the deep south, and it lost any chance at winning black votes. It was a cynical, and intentional, political risk they took.

"by the MSM,"

A hysterical lie. If you want to be taken seriously, spouting this bilge about "liberal media" will just get you laughed at. Nobody is "forced to vote for Democrats" by honest reporters telling the truth, which is what pisses off those who promote this silly myth.

"Academia"

Again, the far right paints truth as "liberal bias." So-called "academia" does nothing but teach the truth, and they get called "liberal" because the far right depends upon ignorance. So when they teach facts about science, about history, about human sexuality, it blows up the myths upon which so much of the far right agenda is built.

"and Hollywood"

No, that's too silly for words.

"as they lose tons of political leverage that they might otherwise use to help their communities."

The sickest of lies. So, you're saying they'll get "leverage to help their communities" by voting for people who OPPOSE helping their communities? That's lunacy.

No, they know what they're doing. If the GOP wants black votes, they need to change their agenda.

Obama is such a RACE-BAITING dirtbag.
There is no such thing as a "race card." "Race-baiting" is a vile, racist lie. NOBODY "baits" racism. No black person enjoys racism, no black person stirs it up. But those with courage will respond to it and fight against it.

Sadly, contrary to your BS, Obama mostly lacks this courage, he's done very little to promote racial justice, and the list of REAL black leaders he's thrown under the bus keeps growing. Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Skip Gates, Shirley Sherrod, who'll be next, one wonders.

Dr. Ben Carson - CPAC Speech 2013
Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson said he is prepared to refrain from speaking at the university's School of Medicine commencement ceremony, after students and faculty petitioned over comments he made comparing homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia Tuesday.

DR BENJAMIN CARSON: "If anyone was offended. I apologize to you. What I was basically saying is there is no group. I wasn’t equating those things, I don’t think they’re equal. If you ask me for an apple and i give you an orange you would say, that’s not an orange. And I say, that’s a banana. And that’s not an apple either. Or a peach, that’s not an apple, either. It doesn’t mean that I’m equating the banana and the orange and the peach."
I had to find out more about what the controversy consisted of.

What is a GIANT Red Flag to me is this: "...comments he made comparing homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia..."

Comments??? What comments???

If this is the central point of the attack on Ben, it certainly would seem fair, logical and good reporting to put those offending quotes out for public dissemination.

Ben Carson stated catagorically, "I wasn’t equating those things, I don’t think they’re equal",

Bon mot--"Dr. Ben Carson is one of the most respected professions in the world, a doctor and pediatrician."

Which has absolutely NOTHING to do with the hateful trash he's spewed and which we are discussing.

"Fraud Barack Obama is one of the world's most despised professions, a lawyer and politician."

The claim he is a "fraud" is a lie, based in racist claptrap, and HIS profession has even LESS to do with the discussion at hand.

"The difference is one saves the lives of children while the other murders them before they have a chance."

Absolutely sick lies. Total garbage. Obama never murdered anybody. He supports a woman's RIGHT to CHOOSE for herself if she is or is not pregnant, which is NOT "murder" and is a right vital for all women, particularly lower income women, disproportionately minority.

"To those of you who are liberal racists"

The claim liberals are "racist" is a bald-faced lie. It's a pathetic political meme that started with the lie that Democrats are "racist" and then got perverted by morons like yourself who think being a Democrat and being liberal means the same thing.

"and spew hatred for success of any color,"

Another lie. NOBODY "hates success." We want to see success for ALL people, you trumpet the success of a few as seeing it great for a small number to have obscene luxury while millions don't even have enough to eat. Thta isn't success.

"skin color only makes a difference to you and overwhelms your comprehension."

Lie. Our comprehension is fine. And skin color DOES matter, the sick LIE that it does not is promoted by those who want the current state of inequality and injustice to continue and call those who promote equality and justice "racist."

Tell me...was Martin Luther King "racist"?

He has virtually no qualifications for public office, and there is no "integrity" whatsoever in his shilling for the obscenely rich and lying to promote more inequality and more injustice. He may be a fine doctor, but there's no "integrity" there at all.

Why do you swallow these pathetic lies instead of dealing with the REALITY of what liberals believe?

No, we do not "hate successful black people." We hate that he's promoting a system in which a FEW get obscenely rich while millions suffer and die in crushing poverty and face racism and injustice. Carson could do great things in promoting equality, instead he chooses to side with inequality and injustice, and THAT is what we hate.

<quoted text> Talk to the victims of the bigots in thousands of changing neighborhoods forced on the general population over the decades. Murders, rapes, assaults, burglaries, outright street drug dealings, and more with the caveat of putting fear into people. Most of this not even reported and a general population oblivious to what is happening or feels screwed over in their lives as pursuant to their views not based on objectivity, but vengeance. A vengeance dished out to the innocent who actually believed in most changes in civil improvements. So what do we get? People who achieve power and do not mind their business in others affairs. Somehow acquainting equality with their warped views of abilities and irresponsible behaviors paid for by the taxpayers and used as a crux for their failings. This has spread to the general population at different levels and we are headed for a massive fall. In race relations...we went from a white culture that was accused of "separate but equal" at a point in history to one now that has the black culture accused of "equal but separate" with the onus on extorting every last cent from others and the drama is still being played out.

It isn't the central point, there are others.

If you have family members who have been screwed with and/or seen your neighborhood destroyed and others messed with, do not listen to these evil people. For you will be killed if not prepared as the economy declines. Trust no one who does nothing for you. Trust those are civil and will have your back as the world declines into darkness.

Or in other words put up or shut up as we say.
I'm not claiming that those who are home-schooled do worse than in public schools, though one has to wonder what some of them are taught given the number of cranks and extremists who engage in home-schooling.

But what I really want to see is better public schools, and an end to the Rightie strategy of eliminating them as a way of getting rid of teachers' unions. Not to mention the dumbing-down and distortion of history, science, and textbooks in the schools which the Right, particularly the religious Right, is pushing.

Pure nonsense' in case you forgot, Reagan carried 49 out of 50 states against Mondale. It was the dems who always used the Southern Strategy, disguising their "progressive" agenda by putting up southerners like, LBJ, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

Yes, blacks have BEEN Forced into a one-party system, preventing them from having political leverage afforded to other communities. Look at this attack on Ben Carson as an example. Herman Cain and Clarence Thomas were other examples of black Americans attacked for independent thinking.

The GOP has been LEADING the fight for better education by pushing school choice and the voucher system.

>>Crapola. Affirmative Action has helped a couple of generations of black Americans get better schooling, get better jobs, and add to the black middle class.

You are the Rascist, I'm afraid, and your opposition to school choice and vouchers proves it.
