Assorted pundits, propaganda artists, trolls, sheeple, and zombies
have taken to the practice of tryin gto discredit obama by calling him a
racist.
This is sickening and disgusting, because not only is it a patently racist
attack against obama, it has no merit and ther eis no proof. The attack
relies entirely upon rhetoric, and upon making utterly bogus assumptions
regarding usually Obama and His pastor.
It requires us to beleive that a man who is half white and half black
has picked on race over the other, that a man who speaks eloquently for
all of Americans everywhere who face the mechanations of corporate oligarchy,
is just spouting his own rhetoric.
It requires us to not pay attention to Obamas factual personal History,
His actual assorted stated positions and his speeches on the subject,
and to jump to a conclusion painted for us by Fox News.
Obama is not racist. And thus calling him a Racist is itself Racism.
It is a sad day in America when the alarm of Racism is raised falsely,
and projected at a target which is undeserving, in order to secure votes.
It is a sad day In America when the pundits and the Trolls willingly pick
up the old banners of Racism, By using the convenient lie and obvious excuse
that their target is racist.
Reverse Reverse Racism. How much traction will it get?
I have news for the pundits, the propaganda artists, and the evil assorted jerks.
The more times they cry wolf about Obama being racist as a way to excuse their own race baiting
and Racism, the more sick and tired Educated White people are going to get of it.
And yes, the uneducated trolls and spin doctors and zombies that the left and the right
have come to count on may buy it for a while, but the problem will rapidly become that too
many people know better, and that they will speak out.
For every Troll that posts a thousand times that Obama is Racist, There are twenty
people who know better, and who won't bother to fight over it in an internet forum.
And your beleiving he is not a racist is your assunption. I am sick of the double standard for blacks in this country. Did Obama and the democratic party not attack Mitt Romney over the whole Mormon thing? Jesus, they went back to the beleifs of Mormons 100's a years ago! Why should it be any different for Obama. My conclusion of him being racist is based on what he said out of his own mouth, that Mr. Wright was his mentor. Well, Mr. Wright is a racist and has been for a long time, everyone in Chicago knows this. And his great slogan of "Change" goes right down the toilet when I see that his children also attend this church, this means they will be repeating the cycle of hate, yeah, that's change alright. And what is even worse is the fact that this guy wants to be President and he sits there in that church listening to anti-American rhetoric! He claims these views are not his own, but how many of us attend a church or any organization that does not mirror our own beleifs? It would be like McCain getting caught at a clan meeting and then saying that he was there because the grand master was his mentor, but he didn't agree with his views. This is crap.

I am glad you would like to vote for mccain, but he has his flaws as well. When Obama`s pastor was misquoted for his sermon in his church they (media) put him on blast, but what has happened with Mccain`s pastor. you said he is a good christian and loves america, then why does he attend a church where the pastor wants slavery back? See people want to have a united front but do not want to stand and delivery. I believe the first thing in that is to accept your differances and find a common ground to work on. I am not voting Obama because he is black, I am voting because I think he is qualified and can give america a new outlook on life for us all. Obama is a god fearing man with a beautiful family and a smart wife, he addresses the issues at hand and is not trying to pull the wool over your eyes. this whole race has been about race with the clintons and Mccain hangs on to her coat tail in order not to look dumber then he is.
Thank you and have a blessed day

Adam,
Get over it. There are White clubs all over the US.. Let the minorities have their clubs. White people have slaved, tortured and killed minorities through out history. Now you want to fuss about a website...
Grow up man...
White clubs? Where? Show me a mainstream white club.

So whites have slaved and tortured? yes you're right - but what about the Jews? They suffered longer slavery and more torture than any black race ever dreamed of - yet I don't see them asking for forty acres and a mule or with a "Jew Entertainment Televison" station, or a "Miss Jew America" contest.

I also don't see a Jewish candidate ever receiving 90% of the "Jew" vote either - what does that tell you?

Also,...I can never get over black people and their attitude toward todays white population - being so quick to bring up slavery,....where is outrage over the Africans who sold black slaves themself? Hmm you never hear that do ya?

Grow up.

Hey I'm white and I've been a member of blackplanet since Dec of '99, just a few months after the site first started. Anyone can join. It's nice actually finding a site that's got a lot of black women on it to search through. Most of the dating sites have mainly white, and I prefer dating interracially. =P

From a minority point of view. As a son of Nigerian immigrant who was raised in a predominately white culture, there are some cultural and/or identity issues that aren't addressed in this type of discussion.
One of problems that I see is that without an outlet that allows you to be comfortable about your own culture, common experiences or your own appearance, the foundation of your own identity can be in crisis.
You start questioning who you are, whether you are normal, what do you have to be proud of,.....ect...
Issues that you don't considered if you are growing up as a white american in this culture. In a rural, suburb, middle class setting there are mentors who you can emulate and identify with all around you. So alot of times you'll already have a sense of who you are ...and not really have some of these issues. Its not an absolute but a general trend.
I found it interesting that the Nigerians that I came across had such a firm belief in who they were and where they came from, and no doubt or second guessing...kind of felt that was missing with me.
So in summary blackplanet is not a racist site. Interests in views are focused around Black American issues and everyone is invited to go on that site.
No, it isn't racist. The fact that there can be a BlackPlanet but can't be a WhitePlanet where disillusioned and lost whites can go to find a sense of self in this overbearing, overgeneralizing (towards whites) culture. The girl earlier was so right. There are SO many whites today, like me, who HAVEN't enslaved anyone. The reverse goes for Blacks and other "minorities:" YOU have NOT been a slave. So shut the hell up. You're embarrassing your ancestors. If they knew they had to go through slavery only to have whiny descendants who wanted to sink as low as the people who enslaved their ancestors, they'd probably be ashamed. BTW, I'm an Anglo-American. NOT WHITE.

People try to bring slavery against white people
EVERY race of people had made people slaves since before American colonists caught on to it. Egyptians did it and so did the black tribes of Africa.

I find blackplanet offensive as a white person. I see many black on white racism there and like in the rest of the world .. thats all ok.

Whites are the minority and always portraited as the evil racist while 99% its the other way around.

I mean only the fact that i cant make a site like whiteplanet or whatever just because white is always considered rasist. It annoys me.

If i made whiteplanet i would have to have 1000 banners on the front page stating IM NOT RACIST and still colored people would cry rasicm like they always do.

Even when i looked on google for blackplanet and rasism the first post was some post from some black person who even thought it was a place for whites to harm black LOL i was amazed.

BLACKPLANET is as rasist as it can be and the extreme left wing white people that dotn think so are blinded by left wing fascism. I might actually even make a white planet kinda thing and we will see what happens.

I don't know, the name is pretty sketchy. As long as they discuss other races in a positive matter without attacking them negatively. Also, if all they do is cover black issues or topics by inciorporating other races positively and freeley accepting other races to join, then I guess it's okay. So I think WhitePlanet, if they followed the same guidelines as I just stated existed, then I guess it won't be a problem. RussianPlanet or GermanPlanet would be neat =)
