Chip Wall can't help but zero in on the little stuff whenever he watches Barack Obama on TV.

Interesting. Fascinating really--mostly about the context of Hawaii at the time. I attended university in Hawaii at the same time Barack was attending Punahou. As a white person in a predominantly Asian school, while I did notice being a numeric minority, I didn't feel overt discrimination from anyone. But sometimes slurs or comments have more than one meaning, and being new in Hawaii at the time, I may have missed some racist comments. But of course being white here is not the same as being black/African American.

Fascinating that Obama's black 'father' fits every white racist's stereotype -- especially in that he is STILL uninterested in his former wife and his son.

Speaks volumes.

I went to that same high school. The kids there were just awful, very awful to me. They shoved pine cones in my a*s and called me tasty cakes.

Barack Oboma's latest speech which everyone is commenting on seems to me to be different than all of his speeches so far.What I mean is that it neither attracts the Republicans or Democrats who are looking for and interested in improveing race relations, reduced taxes or homeland security issues. All it did was to point his finger at his concern that we are gullible, that is our faith based religeons and our constitutional based rights are somehow in his opinion unimportant and not the basis of our great country.He lost my vote.

hmmmmmm? even when a liberal makes the...choke ...gasp!!!...

...discovery that not only caucasian people dislike having other races thrust into their midst and forced to associate and mingle with them...

....even then the dishonest liberal drones have to bring up white rascism to equte it to....

..just so we all get the idea that this black racsist is no worse than any white rascist....

still in their dishonesty tyring to minimize his uncalled for dislike of white folks...

anyway i believe the word rascist is misused and overused and perverted like so many other words the liberals misuse and minimize the meaning of...

rascism is used against all nationalists....nations are after all based on;...
race ..language..and culture...so if you believe a nation should be based on one race you are by default a rascist, in liberal terms...

rascism in pure terms is not hatred of another race,but discrimination based SOLELY on race...generally seen as systemic or government based....as would have been the case in nazi germany via the nurmberg laws
had the jews been a separate race instead of a religion...

....judaism is a religion, no one is born a jew by race,anymore than you are born a christian by race, although the nazis declared jews a separate race..that is none the less not true, so we had not a true case of systemic rascism even in the third reichs state system..

Just because his father was a irresponsible bust out alcoholic that did not have the integrity to take care of the child he fathered does not mean that Mr. Obama should be criticized for it. His mother and her family seem honorable. His father was filth.

Does anyone think Paul Vallas did a good job in the School District of Chicago?

Does anyone know who Paul Vallas is?

Does anyone know if Obama's friend, William Ayers, worked with Vallas in the reform movement in the Chicago School District?

Does anyone know who William Ayers is?

I just learned that William Ayers - Obama advisor - was an educator involved in Chicago's school district.

I also know that Paul Vallas ruined the School District of Philadelphia and he will ruin the School District of New Orleans.

I just can't believe the papers in this town. Is the obama staff personally sending the 'articles' for publish? What a bunch of crap. Between the times and their 'obama' section, and the trib with their daily love fest you'd think obama should be forced to pay for all this free advertising. He ll I doubt either one of these papers even know how to spell McCain's name. All hail King Obama. Vote your rights away, vote your money away, as King Obama would tell you, your too stupid to think, act, work, or live without his instructions.

It amazes me that any white person who doesn't vote for obama is racist. Not one of the 92%black vote for him are racist. Give me a break. There is such a collective guilt over slavery. I think I have paid about all I'm willing to pay. Get over it, go to work, get educated. The 4 trillion spent since the raw deal..er..new deal on social programs is enough. BO momma must have been quite the lady. Running down God And the man all the while standing in line with her hand out.Wow, does that sound familiar.Next time you pass me on the street how about a thank you. I PAID more in fed tax than the median income and what do I get? absolutely nothing. Remember any govt big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.

Wow...this is some kind of ignorance...

I'm a Black woman who lives in Chicago and who ISN'T voting for Obama...so I feel quite comfortable in saying this...

Since you're not Black and don't know what the H-ell you're talking about...

YOU GET OVER IT!!!

Where do you all get from this article that Obama's mother stood in line taking hand outs? She remarried when he was 5, I assume her second husband provided for his family for a time.

Just because she was a single Mom didn't mean she took handouts. And if she did, it does not make her less of a woman any more than it would make a man less of a man to need assistance. It's perverse to put people down for their misfortune. Here's hoping that one day you all grow up.

I really admire the outspokeness and wide-ranging interests of Barack's mother. Also, it must have been very hard living with her father who always reminder her that he wanted a son. I've seen some truly ignorant posts who question Obama being a "real American" and I have to chuckle when they don't seem to realize that one born in Hawaii is very much an American!

You really have an anger management problem and a lot of hostility toward Obama and his late mother for no apparent reason.

I should say it is not typical to be from Kansas and find yourself in a bigamous marriage. Utah or Texas maybe.
