His portrait photos at wikepedia ping my gaydar. He also has Michelle Malkin eyes, and I don't mean anything about ethnicity. He's yet another black Republican against enforcing the Voting Rights Act, against the ACA, against raising the debt ceiling, against marriage equality, against choice, against the work of the National Labor Relations Board.

Which of the political stances which I attributed to him is incorrect, you stupid white [sic] supremacist [sic]?

I reference his photos at wikipedia because they ping my gaydar. That is my judgement, not bias at wikipedia. OTOH, wikipedia probably does give more weight to the notion that the Earth is billions of years old as opposed to thousands of years old, so of course the right wing finds it biased.

In all seriousness Senator Scott rose from poverty and adversity to become a success in business and politics. He eschews using race as a crutch but is correct in his assertions.

Professional race advocates are afraid of his message that playing victim and using a racial culture to further negative behavior are not the ways to succeed but hard work and decency are.

Senator Scott is one of a very damn few Blacks who would have any kind of chance becoming th next Black President after Obama spent 8 years reinforcing the false stereotype of Black incompetence and corruption at high levels of responsibility.

Actually, the good Senator would technically be the first black president. Obama was black in politics only...

A fact many libs deny and will dispute is that Obama was an original OREO. Black outside..... White inside. A White Mother,Black Father and raised by White Grandparents in a WHITE culture/atmosphere. While I'm sure he was aware he was Black he didn't discover his "Blackness"n until college when he preferred being called Barak as opposed to Barry,his White family nickname. After college and his subsequent move to Chicago he he began his Community Organizing career in the Black communities but kept close ties to White friends in influential places. How else could he have begun a political career without a little clout from a certain segment in the White community? Do a little study and you'll find that even today his close circle are mostly White libs of influence as well as politically connected weaalthy Blacks. You WON'T find Barry Obama hobnobbing and rubbing elbows with the great unwashed multitude of Black folk on the South side of Chicago any more. He don't need them now.

How revealing. White [sic] supremacist [sic], would a bad of "falsely stereotypical" white President also mean it would be a long time until America would elect another white President?

Don't claim to be race neutral, bigot. You only generalize in that way about black people.

Awwwww shucks. Couldn't call me racist huh? You must not know me very well if you gather that I merely "generalize" about Blacks..... No,I get pretty damn specific about them. 30% aren't worth the powder to blow them to hell..... Another 60% want the same damn thing White people want. Jobs,a decent place to live,a safe environment to raise a family,be treated with some modicum of respect and want as little government intrusion into their lives as possible. The other 10 % spend their time fomenting racism of their own andor exploiting OTHER Blacks to line their own pockets pointing out (the 10% of worthless) Whites who exhibit THEIR own brand of racism.......

But why would what you consider to be a bad black President mean there would be no more black Presidents for a long time? U dun fergit to answer.

If there's a bad white President - like dWi Bush - does that mean in your mind we shouldn't have had a white President for a long time?(No, you would never say that with regard to a white President.)

So why the different formulation with regards to a black President on your part? Racist.

Answer the question this time moron. It's not a question about what your racist generalizations of the black populace are. It's a simple question about your racist "logic."
