Why do you believe that Liberals (according to you) want to keep the Blacks that are in the Ghetto – in the Ghetto?
Affirmative action has always been about giving the sons of black doctors and lawyers a leg up on lower class whites. The lawyer's son gets into college rather than the roofer's daughter even though his grades are far below...

Liberalism has never shown an interest in helping out poor black communities.

Although I disagree with how you relate it to Affirmative Action, it is true that status and stature gives you and your kin access to things sometimes easier than the average Joe. For example: George W. Bush would never had been allowed to step foot near Harvard had it not been for the fact that his last name was Bush and his blood ties linked him to Papa Bush. Unlike Barack Obama, who actually had to work hard and make good grades in order to even be considered through Affirmative Action to be accepted to Harvard (if AA was his path into the school). And once Barack Obama got there his hard work and grades elevated him to become President of the Harvard Law Review (the first African American to do so).

There are a lot of successful Blacks (and Whites) who grew up through many of the Liberal social programs such as Head Start, School Breakfast and Lunch Programs, Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, Housing Assistance etc… who would tell you today they would not be productive members of society had it not been for many of the programs that Liberals implemented.

If this effigy helps to sell more watermelons, then it is a good thing since it will spur economic growth in the produce industry. This nation needs every kind of economic growth as we go over the fiscal cliff in a few days from now.

schmear, you dolt ! You've wasted years of your life that could have been used wisely educating yourself and squandered them on your fake marine fantasies and posting libibberish on topix
let me spell it out for you....slowly
lib media & demonicrat politicians + fake racist accusations + entitlements = vote democrat & stay in ghetto
now sit down and think about it before you knee-jerk and drag your paw across your vaseline and semen encrusted keyboard
If you were twice as smart as you think you are, you'd still be a simpleton.

Personal invectives toward Marine Corp Pat do not constitute an argument.

a) Freedom of speech means freedom of all speech. The more offensive the speech the more it needs protection.
b) Obama was born in Hawaii and educated in muzzie schools in Indonesia. Since he was not really raised as an American a rural southern stereotype hardly fits him anyway. All kids down south grow up on watermelon. Not just the black...
a) Freedom of speech does not include the right:

To incite actions that would harm others (e.g.“[S]hout[ing]‘fire’ in a crowded theater.”). Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919).

To make or distribute obscene materials. Roth v. United States, 354 U.S. 476 (1957).

To burn draft cards as an anti-war protest. United States v. O’Brien, 391 U.S. 367 (1968).

To permit students to print articles in a school newspaper over the objections of the school administration. Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 484 U.S. 260 (1988).

Of students to make an obscene speech at a school-sponsored event. Bethel School District #43 v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675 (1986).

Of students to advocate illegal drug use at a school-sponsored event. Morse v. Frederick,__ U.S.__(2007).

b) true about Obama, but the statement was made by a 'Kentucky man' who might be knowledgable of racial sterotypes.

That is not how the word is used.

If you make jokes about blondes being dumb that is not considered anti-Norwegian racism. Is it bigotry to suggest redheads have fiery tempers? Jokes about dumb Polaks or crooked Wops is ok too. New Yorkers or southerners is also ok. Even Jews, Hispanics or Arabs you see it all the time.

No one complains about the racism in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish mascot... or the Washington Redskins one.

Only if the insult is directed against black liberals is it considered...

Yup.

Don't act so "shocked", it's no different than you libs accusing ANYONE who doesn't agree with Obastard of being "racist".

You effing retard.
When Obama was cynically mocking John McCain as Juan McCain and making a big deal about the fact that he was born in the Panama Canal Zone (also his support for immigration reform) and suggesting that made him somehow a non American no one called that racist. Yet when folks make jokes about Obama's own birth certificate...
