You mean to say for all the Republicans that have publicly compared Obama to a monkey, that is not racist? No wonder Republicans are delusional when it comes to "the race card".... EG: Marilyn Davenport, a member of the Orange County, California, GOP, forwarded edited photos depicting Obama as a chimp Barbara Espinosa, Arizona GOP Radio Host called Obama a monkey on the air with Arizona Republican Party Chair Tom Morrissey as guess, who remained silent Now, you could try and defend your non-racist stance, stating that many people called Bush a monkey as well, but the difference is Whites weren't enslaved and murdered for centuries under the false premise that they were subhuman apes; blacks were.

Just because more than zero people oppose Obama only because of his race, some seem to suggest that all opposition is because of his race. Jimmy Carter is one that has made such a charge, which I found highly offensive.

Samuel L. Jackson publicly admitted that a major reason he supports Obama is because Obama is black. Are we to conclude that Obama supporters only support him because he is black? That would not be a logical conclusion.

BTW, no one who has met me has ever accused me of being white.

Using the race card is very convienent, even though it is a rediculous cop out from the facts. He has NO LEADERSHIP, NO EXPERIENCE, NO KNOWLEDGE, NO COMMON SENSE. He is just a community organizer. He has lost touch from the people since his 2008 campaign. He Will not take advise from anyone, I mean anyone.

Blacks were sold into slavery when Africa opened their prisons and sold the people into slavery. Just about all other races or religions have been persecuted for thousands of years compared to the blacks. Besides the blacks had it better in America compared to the way they were treated by their own people. Why don't you ask Africa why they don't consider American blacks apart of their heritage. That is why African American terminology is totally incorrect. There are white Africans. So the TRUE terminology is "American Black"! You can thank the Democrats for holding the blacks back and who started and ran the KKK and White Supremacy organ. Sen. Byrd was a Grand Wizard. Republican FREED the blacks, Thank you. Really amazing how smart the-cont

blacks are to associate themselves with the group who stifles their evolution and free entitlements for 2 or 3 generations on Welfare, Food Stamps and lowering education standards to try and meet their level, instead of trying to bring them up to standards. So everyone suffers for what the democrats have done to this country. You Liberals ought to get your head out of your as* and look at the FACTS and HISTORY!! Ignorant fools!
One advantage of defeating Barack Obama in November, apart from saving the country from financial ruin and the rest, is that conservatives will presumably be able to criticize liberal policies again without automatically being accused of racism.

These charges aren't just emanating from the fringe groups; they're not just being uttered by radical leftist bloggers or Occupy Wall Street zealots. They are no longer the exclusive province of race hustlers whose professional careers depend on stirring up animosity among racial groups.

In August 2011, the level of polarization seemed to reach a fever pitch, when Congressional Black Caucus Whip Andre Carson said, "Some...
