so 95% of blacks voted for Kerry, and 96% voted for gore because they are black?

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...
lol, conservatives will lie about anything

It was GLEN BECK that called him Juan, not Obama.

Discussing last night’s GOP debate on his radio show today, Glenn Beck and fill-in host Pat Gray mocked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) by derisively calling him “Juan McCain.” Beck, who considers McCain’s sponsorship of a comprehensive immigration bill and the Mexican background of his national director of Hispanic outreach to be “an audacious slap in the face to the American people,” proudly advertised the segment in his daily e-mail to listeners today:

Why lie?

You have no sense of humor. If it was ok to mock McCain in such a manner then it is similarly ok to...

As for the teabaggers, the border nazis and other assorted nativist yahoos if they continue to force candidates in the Republican primaries to foam at the mouth and parrot their know-nothing nonsense good luck on winning states like Florida in the future.

Republicans actually choose moderates... McCain pushed for comprehensive immigration reform and Romney was pro sanctuary cities in Massachusetts... yet the morons in the primaries turn them into...

Obama's real problem is that being Hawaii born and educated in muzzie schools in Indonesia he is culturally east Asian and that is why he is ok with the long term double digit unemployment numbers for blacks and hispanics.

He would much rather corporations outsource all the jobs to...

Not that it matters; because the demographics will make your bigoted side irrelevant and a permanent minority soon… but I just wanted to let you know that your racist response is exactly why you lost. Most Blacks and Latinos are patriotic hard working Americans who pay more in taxes that the right-wing republican Whites who disparage them.

What demographic trend? Hispanics are no different than Italians, Greeks, Jews or any other group of "white ethnics". Same with Asian Americans. If the teabagger yahoos would just go away...

Even amongst African Americans notice how it is the immigrants (examples... Obama's father was Kenyan and Colin Powell is of Jamaican heritage)? Even black folks from other countries pretty quickly surpass local blacks in economic and political terms. Something about the hard working immigrant mentality.

Compared to the lazy plantation slave narrative...

I "am" a 'so called' birther TOO!

The man could have been "born in the White House" ...
That STILL does NOT make him a "natural born" citizen!

His father was/IS a Kenyan! BRITISH - NOT an American!
It takes TWO(2) United States "citizens" to BREED a "natural born citizen ...

His mother was. Father wasn't!
No way in HELL for him to be a NBC!

Being from Kenya makes you a Brit? Another fine product of our American public school system.

Now that’s rich: the idiot who needs help in coping with issues of hate and racism exacerbated through his bitterness of losing the election actually thinks that he can help someone, LOL!

Trust me, Black and enthusiastically enjoying every minute of the next 4 years as fools like you seethe and cry is a more accurate depiction.

you're right, maybe the picture needs to show fried chicken, chitlins n greens, then it would be a better representation. But we already know the first couple lean to burgers, fries, ice cream and moochies lobster and wagyu beef, hardly prole food like normal people on a budget eat.
