A secretive group known as The Fellowship, or “The Family,” is one of the most powerful Christian fundamentalist movements in the United States. The Family’s devoted membership includes congressmen, corporate leaders, generals and foreign heads of state.

Unlike other Christian right groups, they [The Family] don’t really believe that you’re in power because you’re a good person.They believe that they are the “new chosen,” that you’re chosen for power by God. You’re not so much elected by the people as selected from above. And when you’re in that position, it doesn’t matter what you do. In a similar vein, the foreign leaders with whom they work, the dictators, about whom they have no illusions, are chosen by God for their countries, regardless of how brutal they are.

Newsweek, March 10, 2003,

Bush believes in God's will-and in winning elections with the backing of those who agree with him. As a subaltern in his father's 1988 campaign, George Bush the Younger assembled his career through contacts with ministers of the emerging evangelical movement in political life. Now they form the core of the Republican Party, which controls all of the capital for the first time in a half century. Bible-believing Christians are Bush's strongest backers.

It's not easy for a white-African American king, raised by "typical white folks" to relate properly to the black community. That's why he spends so much time playing golf, and vacationing in Hawaii and Cape Cod... to experience what the average black person has to suffer through in their life.

So funny. When you put what I said in quotes and added "to be properly black" I got an instant flash of Chris Matthews and Piers Morgan. There is nothing about anything I said that implied "properly black". What does "properly black" even mean?
I did not say Obama would not identify as black. What I did say is he lived and grew up in a world of privilege that was pretty white and would have identified as more white than black. Growing up in Hawaii was not racially oppressive in the late 70s and 80's. It wasn't like that in California either. His identity with inner city blacks is not through personal experience.
I didn't lump Sharpton or Jackson into the New Black Panthers in the way you suggested. All I said was that each has its claws in the black community and all are media whores.
Even I identified with Trayvon's parents and my 17 year old, rap lovin', pant sagging, tattoo sporting, white boy son with Trayvon. You don't have to be black to put yourself in their terrible position or realize that boys out with friends can make very stupid mistakes. They are dumb as a box of rocks with boat loads of testosterone and teenage angst. They, given the right circumstances, are volatile and very unpredictable.
What I am saying, and continue to believe, is that Obama really doesn't give a rat's hairy behind about how his policies affect average Americans from any walk of life, not the ghetto and not the suburbs. He has never been Joe Average American. Oh, he cares about a story that pops up here and there but beyond that it doesn't make its way into his daily concerns. The only thing he cares about is the policies and agendas that come out of university campuses from people who only know an insulated life.
How can the king relate to the average working man... he's never had a working class job.

I will leave it at that. You are wrong but you've posted it. Folks can read all I wrote and figure it on their own.
Before Tiger Woods came along, I didn't think of golf as a black man's sport. But then, Tiger is only half black too.

Personally, I've never seen a golf course anywhere near a Martin Luther King Boulevard. Just saying.

I hope that all parents of drug using gangsta wanna be violent punks were paying attention. There was a vey important message to be learned... and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with race.

Willie, just so you know, you're good with me. It was a good exchange. My last comment was regarding you saying I called Trayvon a thug. I didn't call him a thug. I leave thug for someone who is committing serious crimes not the wannabees. I do see him as a troubled, searching teen. With juvenile records kept private it is not totally possible to know the whole truth but I think he was on the fringe according to his own texts and photos.

I don't think I ever thought about color as a requirement for any sport.

So true. And, he never attended a working class school either. Private schools all the way. Oops, I was wrong, once when he was in 4th grade in Jakarta.

Willie, that is the kind of thing that is said when you take advantage of my words and then graft in your own. You stopped having a discussion and started making accusations.
Of what did he accuse you?

You accused him of disrespect, when all he did was disagree.

Just sayin'.

You've been working at it for weeks, but nobody's taken your bait (although with all the low hanging fruit I'm surprised Catcher hasn't taken a swing).

Must be kinda frustrating ...

Of course color isn't a requirement for any sport. Tiger Woods made me realize that golf wasn't a sport where blacks were actively participating. Much like Arthur Ashe made me realize the same thing about tennis ages ago.

I only mentioned it because golf wouldn't seem to fit what most people view as the "black experience".

I just shrug my shoulders and shake my head in silence.

There's not much one can say to these guys. They are programmed.

Working at what? obama's the one claiming to have experienced the 'black experience'... I'm simply pointing out how fradulent barry is, once again.

Because he's told so many lies, I don't think obama remembers what the truth is anymore.

Blacks and Whites can play any sport. Any person could play any sport if they wanted to.
