presidentAdmit it. You want a white Republican president again.

Now before you start feeling like you’re a racist, understand you are not.

Wanting a white Republican president doesn’t make you racist, it just makes you American.

In the pre-black president era, criticizing the president was simply the American thing to do. An exercise of one’s First Amendment right. Criticism had nothing to do with color, because there had never been a black president, or at least one whom people recognized as black.

So to criticize the president meant that you didn’t like his policies.

 

The election of a recognized black president was not supposed to change anything. In fact, it was supposed to (1) ease any perceived racial tensions, and (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race. So America would be more free than ever to discuss the issues.

Not the case. And that is why having a white Republican president is best for the country.

Consider that nobody is ever accused of being racist for disagreeing with white presidents. Mexicans disagreed with most white Republican presidents over America’s immigration policy. Many deranged Mexicans believe we should open the country up to them, some saying that much of America belongs to Mexico anyway. They are not called racists.

Liberal blacks have disagreed with most Republican presidents since Eisenhower, yet these blacks are not considered racists. In fact, when blacks had sanity and disagreed with the policies of racist white Democrat presidents, nobody accused black people of being racists.

Fighting for one’s civil rights was not racist then, nor is it racist now. Blacks (and Republicans) were on the side of righteousness, when they disagreed with the racist policies of Andrew Johnson, and adopted by every Democrat president since.

Never has a black person been called racist, because they didn’t like one of the white presidents’ policies. Blacks were just exercising their First Amendment rights to speak freely. Blacks have disagreed with policy positions of about every Republican president in the modern era, including those who have helped them.

Take Reagan for example. Reagan ushered in a veritable Renaissance for blacks, as Fox News showcased.

And the Reagan record?

African-American columnist Joseph Perkins has studied the effects of Reaganomics on black America. He found that, after the Reagan tax cuts gained traction, African-American unemployment fell from 19.5 percent in 1983 to 11.4 percent in 1989. Black-owned businesses saw income rise from $12.4 billion in 1982 to $18.1 billion in 1987—an annual average growth rate of 7.9 percent. The black middle class expanded by one-third during the Reagan years, from 3.6 million to 4.8 million.

Real Politics reports Obama’s statistics as follows:

Median family income for black Americans has declined a whopping 10.9 percent during the Obama administration…This decline does not include losses suffered during the financial crisis and the recession that followed, but it instead measures declines since June 2009, when the recession officially ended.

That’s not the only bad news for African-Americans. The poverty rate for blacks is now 25.8 percent. The black labor force participation rate, which rose throughout the 1980s and 1990s, has declined for the past decade and quite sharply under Obama to 61.4 percent. The black unemployment rate, according to Pew Research, stands at 13.4 percent. Among black, male, high school dropouts, PBS’ Paul Salmon reports, the unemployment rate is a staggering 95 percent.

That report was from 2011, and it’s gotten worse since then. Facts don’t lie. Yet blacks want to put Obama on Mt. Rushmore and hang Reagan in effigy.

The only way you can argue with those stats is if you are a racist. Truth be told, most Liberal blacks are racists.

Nobody wants to discuss it, because racism by black Liberals has been sanctioned by the Left, even encouraged. Black racists get a pass, as black race-baiters are unchallenged on the most idiotic ideas and statements.

MSNBC’s Touré said that using the word “angry” to describe Obama is racist. Juan Williams of Fox News said that mentioning the Constitution is racist, and the list goes on.

But it gets worse. These Lefty racists do a far bigger disservice to blacks and America in general, as they rationalize Obama’s (and the Left’s) inability to create opportunity. When their policies wreak havoc, they pose insane arguments. They say that Republicans are trying to starve people by reducing the welfare rolls that Liberals have happily increased by 16M Americans.

Race-baiting, poverty-pimp Al Sharpton argued recently to keep 3M known deadbeats on welfare.

Black racists don’t complain when black people are marginalized and insulted with policies that dumb down black America, like the lessening of academic standards. They are fine telling black youths that those youths are less smart than all other ethnic groups. Certainly no future ramifications from that policy, said nobody ever.

These same racists allow for black children to be cheated in education and ultimately, opportunity, as their enablers—guilty white Liberal racists—turn a blind eye.

I long for the days of a white president, because under white presidents, at least black people had pride. Liberals have stolen pride from blacks, and they have no intention of giving it back.

At least if we had a white president, black people might have a shot of regaining a modicum of respect.

    I didn’t read the article, just headline that I do not agree with: Dr. Thomas Sowell, Dr. Ben Carson, Dr. Walter Williams, Col. Allen West, Col. Allen West, a LOT, there are so many qualified people that could help lead this country return back to greatness.
    I am afraid that Obama has caused people to be apprehensive about another Black President because he encouraged hate between the races so much rather than being a Leader and taking the Country down the right (correct) path to keep us strong and our eye on the real issue other than maxing out his “race card”.
    I’ll read your article now.

    • Charles Wright

      You didn’t read the article? I don’t read your comment. You trying to pull a Pelosi on us?

    • Yahoo mail

      Explain why it only takes (ONE) ineffective Bi-racial President to dissuade
      future elections of ‘colored’ presidential candidates. This country has
      had (43) past Caucasian Presidents; some were just as ineffective
      and MANY were bigots, yet, NO ONE was apprehensive about
      re-electing another Caucasian for president.

  • sandyinindy

    P.S. Your book, Sexy Brilliance is GREAT!! thanks!

  • Belinda Szmytke

    Thanks for speaking the truth. Liberals are silent now in the face of this president doing exponentially more damage in the ways they excoriated Bush for – war, Patriot Act/NSA, Gitmo, etc ad nauseum. Where are they? If this was a white republican, we would hear a roar like never before.

    It is heartbreaking to see the damage Obama is bringing to the black population, and to racial harmony. Unemployment rates skyrocketing for black youth, people turning to food stamps in droves – it is abominable.

    I truly wish our first black president would have been someone to admire, and who would inspire our youth – black, white, or brown – to become the very best they could be. This president will go down in history as the worst president ever – and not because of his color.

    • Yahoo mail

      All of the attributes and damage you are assigning to President Obama actually belong to George W. Bush. Remember the debt crisis and
      unnecessary wars that George W. amassed upon this country.
      Obama had to come in and attempt clean-up.

      • CharlieFromMass

        While I’ll certainly grant Bush 43 had some major lapses of judgement, the simple fact is that for the first term of his presidency, President Obama spent, spent, spent, and had very little to show for it, other than a huge debt.

        If I had my way, both parties would’ve been broken up ages ago and a very restrictive set of amendments passed that would make spending into oblivion and continuing the exponential growth of government all but impossible.

        • Samm_one

          The deficit is down to it’s lowest level in more than 8 years research helps i think.

          • guerito777

            wrong, 2007 had a deficit of just 161 billion. way lower than the current year

  • jonjon_yo

    I find it offensive that leftists simply cannot fathom that we are criticizing Obama on policy and the content of his character, and not because of the color of his skin. It makes one wonder who the real racists are.

  • helen

    I just love this web site!!! Ya’ll really tell things the way they are….thank you for being ‘there’!!!

  • hopeful

    I don’t think the color of a person skin is the issue, but qualification for the position is. Hopefully now that we have had our first non white president the American people will consider this in the next election. Which is what didn’t get Obama elected.

    • Jacobb Chapman

      A conservative or a Libertarian should be the only politicians to quality.

    • Yahoo mail

      President Obama is just as much Caucasian as he is of African descent.
      Remember; 46 chromosomes.

  • Avery111

    I don’t know about that.. I could get behind men like Allen West or Herman Cain in a heartbeat. Once upon a time I had the utmost respect for Collin Powell.

    • texasken

      Yes. Once upon a time until he showed himself to be only concerned about Obama’s color and not his credibility or his abilities.

      • antheaura

        Yep, Colin Powell surely did a roll-over. I used to think he was good too. Turns out to be just another liberal. What a severe DISAPPOINTMENT!

    • Jacobb Chapman

      I like Allen West.

      • http://www.facebook.com/sstephaniew stephanie wilson

        me too!

        • Jacobb Chapman

          He’s hilarious. Makes me laugh every time he’s on Fox! I’d vote for him if he ran in 2014 or 2016.

  • LuCha

    I would be happy with a competent president.

    • Eric Johnson

      So would I! Don’t care skin tone or whether male or female. Just give us someone with competence and a willingness to roll up their sleeves and work on the problems facing our country.

      With that said, I did enjoy Kevin’s article.

  • Dis

    Why do I feel afraid or dirty then to agree with you? The world has been turned upside down. Who would deny any person success? This country was formed, prospered by ingenuity and hard work. What sane person would resent the efforts of anyone or begrudge reward for hard work. I have worked in the automotive and aerospace industries my entire life, I have seen every creed, color, sex and those who work hard, leave every one of those precursors behind. We, I just see a successful human. Why does it need to be anything more than that?

    • Yahoo mail

      I have only one correction to add to your statement. This country was
      not initially built/formed from ingenuity and hard work from its ‘citizens’.
      The genesis/bare bones of this country came from forced labor.

      • kris littlefield

        Where did you learn that? You might want to go back and study our history. The bare bones of this country came from immigrants who came here and worked hard. What forced labor are you talking about? Slavery? Don’t think so.

      • Dis

        That is a rewrite of history. America was a back woods, second tier country until After the industrial revolution. The forced labor you euphemistically allude to, none other than agrarian sale labor contributed nothing to that rise. You purposely displace time in order toed fend and appease your guilt. A guilt taught and transferred to you by others who feel such guilt. I and the majority of Americans refuse told haul up the past, displace events, change history todappeaserthe guilt you feign.

        • Yahoo mail

          By the late 18th/early 19th century the Industrial
          Revolution did initiate socioeconomic change worldwide.
          It was also the impetus for the Civil War because
          Antebellum Southern Caucasians did not want to give
          up their agrarian way of life as means for wealth.
          Prior to the Industrial Revolution, ‘Cash Crops’ of tobacco,
          cotton, and rice, along with the land, were cultivated by
          purchased human beings and their descendants.
          Vegetables and other food-stuffs were also grown for local
          consumption, but the ‘cash crops’ were used for national
          trade and enriched the country.
          FYI: The blueprint/draft and construction of the White House
          (then called The President’s House) was done by African
          Americans. (Of course they do not receive credit).

          • Dis

            I’m sorry, I missed your point. It was not until the 20th century aka the American Century that America assumed its mantle. Regretfully that moment is also it’s zenith as Progressives consumed with feigned guilt for imaginary slavery contributions and ashamed that America has risen above other nations have conspired to destroy her. The plain fact is Slave contributions while the practice is and was repugnant were in the wrong century. They did not and do not have any impact on America achieving its ” former ” place as superpower. Stow your guilt, preach your hatred for America on simple minds, those common core was designed to manufacture.

  • Michael Lawrence

    You know what would be ironic…..electing a black republican and calling leftards racist for disagreeing with him….

    • Jacobb Chapman

      Sounds like a plan!

    • http://www.facebook.com/sstephaniew stephanie wilson

      yea!! hahaha

    • BRobCleveland

      Electing a Black Republican to WHAT? And people don’t call conservatives “racist” because they disagree with Obama. No, they call you racist because you all publish articles titled “America Needs a White Republican President.”

      • Michael Lawrence

        Lighten up, Francis. Maybe you didn’t notice, but the article is written by Kevin Jackson..he’s black. And, did you even read the article. It’s satire. Jackson says that a white republican is needed because disagreeing with a white guy, nobody call you racist. The current president identifies himself as black and there have been many instances those disagreeing with his politics being called racists. It has nothing to do with his skin color, his policies suck. The irony of my statement, which was also satire…is that if a black Republican were elected president (this would be obvious if you actually read the article) the tables could be turned on those that say those that disagree with Obama are racist by calling them a racist for disagreeing with a black president. In the mean time, don’t take life so seriously, you’ll blow a gasket…and try to find the humor in satire.

        • BRobCleveland

          I don’t care what race the writer is. He is an idiot.

          It was an article based on the STUPID argument that the proper response to racist criticism is to . . . not let minorities be president?! How friggin dumb is that? So if people are racist toward an Asian surgeon, we should restrict surgery to White people? Ditto the Latino attorney?

          Isn’t it “curious” that following this tool’s approach, in response to racism, all the high profile authoritative positions in America would be restricted to White people only! If that is not a racist White supremacist notion, then what the heck is?

          No, son, this article was incredibly stupid and lacking in common sense. And there is no getting around that.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Satire….not to be taken seriously…..poking fun at liberals….apparently you don’t get the humor of the article. Liberals claim it is racist to disagree with Obama. Obama identifies himself as black. Let me see if I can explain the humor or the satire to you. If a white guy were elected president, nobody could be called a racist by disagreeing with him. Jackson is making fun of liberals that claim those that disagree with Obama are racists. Disagreeing with a policy of a black leader does not make you a racist, it makes you an individual that disagrees with a policy. Of course, the article is lacking common sense, that’s because it is not a serious article. It is HUMOR, a JOKE, a RIDICULE OF LIBERALS. Crawl back under your liberal rock now, apparently Mr. Jackson’s humor is lost on you.

          • BRobCleveland

            You really think this was satire? You think he was trying to be “humorous”?

            Read the comments here. I don’t think anyone else but you thinks it was satire. Just because something is stupid, poorly thought out, and relates to politics does not make it “satire.”

          • Michael Lawrence

            Look at who is complaining…liberals…guess no liberal has a sense of humor when they read an article that they don’t like. With so many liberals complaining, the premise must be true…so sad for liberals not to have any kind of sens of humor when it comes to people pointing out bad things about them….

        • Samm_one

          Satire implies a sense of humor. So what you are saying is that this entire site is a rather brilliant work of satire, or the author has nor true seance of irony.

          • Michael Lawrence

            No, that’s not what I said at all. Did you actually read my comment? If you had, you would know what I said.

          • Samm_one

            I did my comment was correct. Sorry

    • BRobCleveland

      I think you missed his point. He just said we don’t NEED a Black Republican president. Meaning,your guy is calling for a “White only” set aside on the Republican nomination for the presidency. And after reading that, you suggest that the LIBERALS are “racist”?

      So who are the real race obsessed people here? The Dem Party, the one that has already nominated and elected a Black man? Or the Republican Party, which has you folks cheering a guy who is saying that Black people need not apply?

      I just don’t think you really got the implications of what your guy is saying about your party, or what it considers a “good idea” where minorities are concerned. “Let’s disqualify them from the presidency, because America “needs a White Republican president” not a minority one”? Oh, OK . . . sorta like an internal Jim Crow policy.

      Good luck explaining that to my Black physician and Black dentist, my Latina real estate agent friend, my friend the Arab American engineer, or my Korean immigrant restauranteur friend with the two biracial kids..

      • Michael Lawrence

        Interesting that you bring up Jim Crow policy….that was the policy of YOUR Democrat party, not the Republicans. Since you have brought that up…. Why is it that Democrats filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Why did they try to block the voting rights act of 1965? Maybe you can explain all of that to your black doctor, your black dentist, your Latina real estate agent friend, your Arab American engineer friend, and your Korean Immigrant restauranteur friend with two biracial kids. Maybe while you are explaining things to them you could also explain why the Democrat party elected and had as their leader in the Senate the grand poo ba of the KKK. That’s right, Robert K. Byrd was one of the local big cheeses of the KKK in his state. Maybe you could also explain to them how the KKK was formed after the civil war by Democrats. Maybe you could also explain to them that all the lynchings during the civil rights fight were conducted by Democrats, also try to explain the soft racism of low standards that the Democrats want. What I mean by that is that the Democrats push lower standards for minorities than whites, shouldn’t we all be held to the same standard? Yep, after reading this article I can definitely say that most liberals are definitely racists. Why is it OK to call me a racist because I disagree with an Obama policy? It is not OK to call me a racist for my disagreement. That, BRob is the crux of this article that you do not seem to understand. How would you feel if a black republican was elected and you disagreed with a policy of his and every conservative out there claimed you were a racist because you disagreed with a policy? You don’t care what color conservative is, you simply disagree with a policy. But you are considered a racist by every conservative news outlet, every conservative radio program, every conservative politician….all be cause you simply disagree with a policy.
        This is the ironic humor you fail to understand. If it is OK for liberals to call conservatives racist because of their disagreement with a black president’s policy, then when a black conservative holds the office, then it would be OK to call liberals racist for the very same kind of disagreement with policy. Thus, Jackson says we should elect a white Republican so all that disagree with policy won’t be called a racist. It’s not my fault or Jackson’s fault that you have no understanding of this. Imagine you being called a racist because you disagreed with a black conservative president’s policy and you will understand how we feel being called a racist.

        • Eric Boersma

          You seem to have forgotten everything about political history since 1964. The Democrats filibustering the CRA in 1964 switched parties to Republican after the CRA and VRA were passed.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Who switched parties? Got any proof?

          • Samm_one

            As someone once said during an Encyclopedia Britannica commercial, “look it up dear.”

          • Michael Lawrence

            I don’t do your research for you. I do the research on the points I make. If a liberal can’t back up their points, then their point or argument is pretty moot in the first place.

          • Samm_one

            If you can not support your argument with relevant facts then your point is irreverent and your conviction weak if not false. Adult discourse in most cases not only allows but requires the use of supporting evidence when making a point. Until then you are just saying things. You try to have a point that is hollow, a sandwich with no meat to hold it together. I always support mine. Try again

          • Michael Lawrence

            You make a very good point. I also back up my points. The problem with your entire premise is that I made a point to be backed up. However, I did not, I was asking for back up or proof to a point made by another person. I do not do research for someone when I ask for their proof. If they make an outlandish claim, they should be able to back up their point, don’t you agree? Pay attention the conversation, Samm, you might find that people think less that you are an idiot.

          • Kevin Jackson

            Name me FIVE…historian NOT!

          • Michael Lawrence

            So what you are saying is that the Republicans passed these acts and then the Democrats switched to be Republicans?

          • Samm_one

            Southern Strategy look it up oh fine here

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy

            there it’s simple.

          • Michael Lawrence

            So, basically what wikipedia is saying is that the conservative people in the south stopped voting for liberal Democrats and started voting for more conservative Republican candidates. Wow, and you had me read that entire entry to figure out that one sentence….sad…very sad… You cold have written out that one sentence instead of having me read this entire entry.

          • Samm_one

            Democrats were the conservative party of the time, that changed. Read things.

          • Michael Lawrence

            So basically what I’ve read or found is that the Democrats stopped putting forth conservative politicians and their base stopped voting for them and the Republicans started putting forth conservatives and the conservatives voted for them instead of the liberal candidate of the Democrats. I don’t need to read things to know this. Nobody is denying this. It seems pretty commonsensical to me. If you put forth a candidate that your base does not identify with, they won’t vote for that candidate. I know you liberals like to tout that you WERE the conservative party. Key word is WERE. Now, the Democrat party is the far left socialist party that is damn near communist. Obama and his minions in Congress have been trying to create their socialist utopia. Obamacare is the core of his socialist policy. Executive order 13603….can you say government take over of EVERYTHING. That is socialist at best, communist at worst. And during the shutdown, Obama ordered his brown shirts out to do his bidding. Little hard to say he didn’t do this when it was plastered on our televisions for over 2 weeks….even MSNBC covered this.

            I guess that’s what happens when YOU elect a socialist…you get socialist policy.

            Here is a link for you that speaks about that….I know without some kind of proof you would go batsh_t crazy trying to tell me how big of a lie I just told you. Guess what? I don’t have to lie to you to prove Obama is a socialist and was mentored by a whole host of communists.

            http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/07/Obama-Caught-Lying-Again-He-WAS-Member-of-New-Party-Says-Kurtz

          • Eric Boersma

            Your obvious misunderstandings of what constitutes communism and socialism aside, I don’t think that “socialist” is quite the slur you wish it was. Telling me (or even proving to me) that the President was/is a socialist doesn’t bother me, as I self identify as a Christian Socialist. I wish the President was more socialist. We need a higher minimum wage, better worker’s safety laws, more organized labor, additional social safety nets and better access to cheap health care, in addition to health care cost reductions.

            What you don’t seem to understand is that the terms you’re using as an argument against him are only an argument against him to the people who already agree with you. There are legitimate things to blame the President for. Some imagined party affiliation is not one of them. I’m sure that this link will be just as valid as those stories Breitbart ran about the President being a muslim, or atheist, or his gay husband, or his birth in Kenya or any number of other conspiracy theories that the so-called conservative wing of this country has attempted to smear him with have been.

            You’re not criticizing the President, you’re calling him names. Oh, and by the way: the first way to tell whether or not an international leader is actually a dictator is to look to see whether the people calling him or her a dictator are still alive. If they are, then that person isn’t a dictator. But the brownshirts thing is super-original, keep running with that.

          • Michael Lawrence

            There is a little problem with your thought on Obama NOT being a dictator. We are alive, because we remain armed. Every other dictator has disarmed the citizens before killing them. He has yet to find a legal way to disarm us..not that we would be willing to give up our arms without a pretty serious fight. Mao, Pol Pot, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Ho Chi Min…name a dictator and look a their first acts….disarm the people. We will not let that happen here. We will not go quietly, we will fight back. We may end up dead, but not without a fight.
            You probably think that Obama is not trying to disarm Americans. You would be wrong. Listen to the thing he says and watch the things his administration does.
            Operation Fast and Furious was an operation to discredit gun dealers along the Mexican border. Obama and Holder claim that it was an operation to stop weapons from getting into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels… If that were true, why did the Mexican government have no knowledge of this operation? Our government does not have arrest power in Mexico, so why was the Mexican government not brought in to arrest the drug gangs that received these weapons? Why were only 4 rifles of 2500 tagged with trackers? And why were the trackers short ranged with short battery life? They had no intention of tracking these weapons. They wanted to claim that weapons were being sold illegally and smuggled into Mexico. Gun dealers in this country balked at the idea of this…and guess what? Those gun dealers were right, those weapons were not tracked, and they were used to kill a border patrol agent and to date, several hundred Mexican citizens. This plan backfired or there would have been a crack down on gun dealers. So far, it has been swept under the rug.
            In 1996 Obama sat on the board of the Joyce Foundation. The Joyce Foundation, by the way, is one of the most rabidly anti-gun organizations in our nation. This Foundation funds anti-gun efforts and their goal is the banning of every gun in the US. Obama endorsed the total ban of handguns…no more manufacturing, no transfers, no possession of handguns. Obama voted to ban every common type of hunting ammunition. Obama has opposed every carry law…not just concealed carry, but the carrying of any gun, concealed or open. When Obama first took office, his transition created a website called change.gov and on this website were listed things that Obama wanted to change or policy he wanted to have enacted. Among those changes were reimpose the Clinton era weapon ban on a permanent basis, allow BATFE trace information to be used by anti-gun organizations and anti-gun politicians to spin and manipulate facts, and severely restrict or ban gunshows. Possibly the most damning is that Obama had John Kerry sign the UN small arms treaty. This treaty, if enacted, would nullify our second amendment rights. It would allow the UN to inspect, register, and collect every civilian owned firearm in the US. Why would his administration want this treaty in place knowing full well that our constitution trumps any and all treaties? Even if this were enacted, a repeal of the second amendment would have to follow along with a myriad of laws and regulations to comply with the treaty. This treaty is dead on arrival and will not be ratified by the Senate. Even Democrats are opposing this treaty. If you think he is not trying to disarm us, you are wrong. It has been his mission from day 1.
            Christian Socialist? You can call yourself a Christian with the abortion policy of this administration…interesting.
            Higher minimum wages…this causes one of two things. The price of products or services go up or fewer are employed. This is simple economics that socialists always seem to not understand, and most likely you don’t understand this either. The price of a product or service can only be raised so much before it is not purchased or fewer of the good or service are purchased. Increasing wages, which in most businesses is the largest expense beyond the actual material used in creating a product. If a business raises wages, those wages have to come from somewhere. I know, a good socialist like yourself would calmly say that the owner of the business can take a smaller profit margin. They could do this, but businesses are in business to create profit, not jobs. So, the cost of those wages are either passed on to consumers or wages are cut by laying off workers. Better worker safety laws…. keeping workers safe is a good thing, but when regulations hamper businesses to the point of going out of business, those businesses move over seas. Maybe you haven’t notice, but there are a lot of jobs moving over seas. Again, businesses are in business for a profit and when government regulation causes profit loss, jobs leave to other more business friendly countries. True enough, the workers there make pennies on the dollar compared to American workers and their government may not care about worker safety. But, if the business is overburdened with regulation and governmental red tap..they leave and continue making a profit. More organized labor…yea, just what we need, more union thugs. Unions are half the problem of jobs leaving this country. The unions keep wanting more and more and more and…. eventually businesses can not make a product or provide a service at a price consumers are willing to pay. When that happens businesses either move to right to work states or they leave the country. Again, it is a profit thing. If a business can’t sell their goods or services for a profit, then they have to figure out how to do so. Unions are a big cost, so by dumping union labor, businesses can still sell their goods and services for a profit. I won’t say that once upon a time that unions were not needed. However, their time has passed, much like the dinosaur. Additional social safety nets…. Wow…where to start with that one? America is broke, maybe you haven’t noticed. Our government can not continue to spend more than it takes in. Eventually, other nations that are continually loaning our nation money will stop their loans. Our debt load has caused our credit rating to be dropped twice that I know of. Moody’s dropped it from AAA to AA and China dropped it from A to A-. The federal reserve continues to print more money in their QE measures. The problem with this is that other nations see that our currency is being devalued by this continual printing. That’s great as long as the US dollar remains the world’s reserve currency. China already has currency agreements with Russia, Japan, and most of Europe. The IMF is looking for an international or world currency for international trading. When the US dollar loses it’s status as the world reserve currency, we will be broke….truly broke. No more printing our way out of our debt obligations. No more QE measures. The interest on the debt we already have will triple, simply because the US dollar not being the world reserve currency. These things ARE going to happen unless we get our spending under control. We can not afford additional social safety nets. You want additional nets, fine. Cut spending on something else. The only way to add more safety nets is to cut spending from somewhere else. What would you cut? We could actually look at some of the agencies that are part of the current government, but are actually not constitutional. For example…the EPA, the Department of Energy, and the Department of Education. None are mentioned in the constitution, and according to the 10th amendment, they should be state agencies or state powers. So, you want more social safety nets….OK, we completely cut out the Department of Energy…..it was formed to keep the price of oil down and they sure have done a great job, haven’t they? EPIC failure, so cut that agency out of government, there you go, money to fund your new social safety nets.
            Health care cost reductions….LOL…you are gonna love this…do you realize that the biggest reductions to health care costs comes from cutting insurance out of the equation all together? Doctors that accept cash only, no forms of insurance accepted have the lowest costs. Here is a nice article from one of the outlets that the Obama administration has paid for favorable coverage….
            http://money.cnn.com/2013/06/11/news/economy/cash-only-doctors/
            Yea….Obamacare is going to save us a bundle!!! (sarcasm)
            Your only problem with my source of information on Obama joining the socialist party is that it comes from Breitbart…. Wow….With CNN personalities admitting that they have been paid by this administration to put favorable stories on air and to suppress unfavorable stories, it’s kind of hard to find a news story of this nature in the lamestream media. If they were actually doing their job with as much enthusiasm as they had when Bush was in office this stuff might have made it to the lamestream media. I can’t help that Breitbart scooped them…I guess they should not have taken money from this administration.
            http://beforeitsnews.com/blogging-citizen-journalism/2012/10/cnn-exposed-emmy-winning-former-cnn-journalist-amber-lyon-blows-the-whistle-2444190.html
            Of course, you’re going to say that this is just another conspiracy website like Breitbart.com…. again…bought and paid for journalism…hard to get this stuff in the lamestream if Obama is paying to have it supressed.
            Now about the terms socialism and communism… I have used these terms correctly. Obama is a socialist and he has communist ties and leans very heavily to his communist roots. Obama’s grandparents that raised him were communists, his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist, his mother was a communist, his father was a communist… Even his campaign slogan of “Forward” has a communist history. Forward was the name of a magazine created by Marx and Engels. Mao used the term “Great Leap Forward”.
            Look at his policies and things he says… redistribute the wealth…or take from the wealthy and give to the poor…or take from the wealth creators and give to the wealth takers. This is a communist policy, it is to make all equal in wealth. Those that do not work will have as much as those that do work and have become very successful. You will claim it is greedy to want to keep the money we have earned. I say it is greedy to do nothing and expect a handout from those that are working and making an effort. That is not to say that we should not help those that are handicapped and unable to work. Being a baby factory…not so much.
            Most of his policies are about redistributing wealth…tax the wealthiest the most, claim wealthy have tax loopholes that need to be closed, tax capital gains at a much higher rate, death tax applied to the wealthy. All these policies are about taking from the wealthy and giving to the poor in an attempt to make all equal.
            Socialist policies….the really big one that has been in the news since 2009 is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010…or Obamacare. This law takes control of a large portion of America’s health insurance industry and sets prices in healthcare. Government taking control of industry and setting prices is socialist policy. Obama came up with this and let Congress run with it. I have used the terms socialist and communist correctly. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…it’s a duck….it it walks like a socialist or communist and talks like a socialist or communist….. guess what? it’s a socialist or communist.
            As far the brown shirt comment…. I am referring to the goon squad tactics employed at our national monuments and parks by the national park service rangers. Obama used them to create pain in our veterans, blocking the memorial that their money funded, not government dollars, WW2 veteran dollars created the WW2 memorial. The park rangers blocked off scenic overlooks near Mount Rushmore on state roads and closed private businesses along the Blue Ridge Highway. These are brown shirt style tactics and that is why I used the term brown shirts. Yes, as in Hitler’s brown shirts. Obama also has created a domestic army in the DHS….do they really need enough bullets to kill every American 5 times? Obama is quick to point out that we should not have weapons of war on our streets, but it is his brown shirts that have MRAP vehicles and fully automatic rifles…and hollow point bullets that are outlawed for war under the Geneva conventions. So who is all that ammo for if it can’t be used in international conflicts? Hmm? Brown shirts, indeed. Even the IRS is going to have there very own SWAT teams to enforce Obamacare. Really? does the IRS need SWAT teams? More brown shirts….. For a guy that claims he is not a dictator, he sure acts like he is trying to become one.
            I doubt that I have changed your mind in any way, but i hope that I have given you something to think about.

            Your terrible understanding of history is rivaled only by your terrible understanding of current events.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Terrible understanding of history…that’s laughable. I have a very good understanding of history and I clearly see Obama trying to repeat things that have already happened in other countries that have been taken over by dictators. Perhaps it is your liberal education that has given you a terrible understanding of actual history. Current events, yea…. you really should get the news of current events from other sources than MSNBC and CNN, they have been bought and paid for by this administration and you are not going to get a complete view of current events. But hey, if you want to continue living in your little world of rainbows and unicorns, who am I to stop your little fantasy world? Just keep believing all the crap you want to. I’m sure when you are dragged off to a FEMA camp you will want us to rescue you.

          • Eric Boersma

            You’re not real, right? You’re a troll? I mean, I’d heard all of these contradictory conspiracy theories, but I didn’t think there actually existed a person who believed all of them.

            Yet, here you are. Is there a single negative thing about the President that you’ve heard that you don’t believe? Serious question.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Yea, there is one..I don’t believe he’s the anti-Christ.

          • Eric Boersma

            So you believe that he’s a Muslim. That he’s an atheist. That he’s fiendishly plotting to take over the country and destroy American freedom, and that he’s wholly inadequate, wasn’t thoroughly vetted and has been bungling his way through the entirety of his Presidential term? That he’s a black radical Christian, a socialist, a communist and a facist? That he’s an all-powerful dictator who can only be stopped by Real American Patriots with guns, but that he’s such a bumbling idiot that he needs a teleprompter to get through basic sentences?

            Seriously. This is too much. At least the 9/11 wackos and the anti-GMO people have something approaching a cogent narrative to go along with their conspiracy theories. You don’t have one, you have eleven, most of which are self-contradictory.

            You’re willing to believe almost anything if it’s negative about the President. There’s no way to engage with you politically because your complaints don’t make any sense. They’re the critical equivalent of spaghetti; just throw everything at the wall, and if it sticks, that’s a good criticism. Except first, you coated your wall with glue.

          • Michael Lawrence

            In a word…No. That’s not what I believe at all. You have claimed I believe in these many contradictory things. You are simply wrong.
            I do not believe he is an atheist or a Christian. I do believe he is a muslim. He favors this religion over others and goes out of his way to denigrate Christians. An example of this is banning Catholic Mass on military posts during the government shutdown. What is his reasoning for this? Do Christians in the military no longer have a 1st amendment right to freedom of religion? Priests were not allowed to perform mass without pay, on their own time.

            Obama, in his own words in his books, and the words of Reverend Jeremiah Wright claim he is a muslim and that he went to Wright searching for himself. Wright did not convert him to Christianity….this in Wrights own words. Black radical, yes, I believe that.
            Bungling his way through the entirety of his presidential term…hey, I’m not the only one that thinks this. We can ask President Putin and President Assad about that. Not being able to speak publicly without a teleprompter….he does tend to stammer and stutter when he does not have a teleprompter and often he can not come up with an adequate answer. I don’t have to prove that, he does a pretty good job of proving that without my help. Not everybody is comfortable with public speaking. How many times was Bush made fun of for mispronunciations of words….nucular instead of nuclear… One would think that a politician would be more comfortable with public speaking, but maybe not. I give Obama the benefit of the doubt on that issue and I have not brought that up in any of my points.
            I said Obama is a socialist that has leanings well into communism. His entire family and mentor were communists. He is simply following what he was raised around. His policies are those of a socialist with a communist bent. You would like to think that you have refuted this, but you have not and can not. His policies are what they are, you can not change his policies to be something that they are not.

            Dictator….not quite, but he is definitely trying. He abuses the power of his office. He changes laws by executive order, by the way, that is against the constitution. He has changed Obamacare 19 times by executive order. These changes are legislative acts. He has claimed to want a domestic army that is as well funded and equipped as our nation’s military. He has set out to build DHS into that army. To what end does he need this “domestic army” that is armed with automatic weapons and MRAP vehicles? How can you deny that DHS has become his domestic army? It is a fact that DHS placed orders for and received 2700+ MRAPs, 7000 M4 fully automatic rifles, and almost 2 billion rounds of ammunition, all of it being hollow point ammunition not allowed in war, only to be used domestically. Even MSNBC has commented on this, it’s not a secret. What is all of this for, to what end?
            So far, Obama’s dreams or desires for a dictatorship have been held in check. He has been not been able to achieve everything he has attempted because not everybody is following him blindly….drinking the KoolAid, as it were. You seem to be one of the KoolAid drinkers.
            Those real American patriots you mentioned, we are the militia. We will not begin a war. We are reactionary and will only act if pushed into acting. So far, Obama has been held in check by the ballot box. You hear of litmus tests that he is giving military officers….the test is will they fire on US citizens…those that will not, fail his test and are fired. You hear of false flag operations to detonate nuclear weapons on our soil and those in charge of the nuclear weapons refusing and being fired. You hear of him wanting to suspend Posse Comitatus and order martial law…. You claim that these things are all conspiracy theories… What if they are not? Do you have an answer for that? If enough people, enough different sources are saying the same types of things…. So everybody is lying or 1 man is lying. You know, Joseph Goebels had a saying… tell the largest lie you can, make it simple and repeat it often enough, it becomes the truth. Apparently, you have bought into Obama’s lie.
            Vetting…. right. To this day, there are question circling around Obama’s birth certificate. You will say…oh that’s just a conspiracy…. Is it? The long form certificate published by the White House is reported to have 9 graphical layers. A simple photo copy of a 50+ year old document would have only 1 layer. Currently, this is being looked at in Alabama and has reached the Supreme Court there. They are preparing to hear testimony from forensic document experts. Perhaps this should have been investigated better in 2007-2008. Also, while we are looking at shady things in Obama’s history….why is his entire school record been sealed? Obama spent millions of dollars of his own money to hide these records. Why? What is there to hide? Some have said he attended college on grants reserved for foreign nationals. His records are hidden, so we don’t know. But if someone spends millions of dollars hiding these records, there must be some reason to hide them from scrutiny.
            Obama’s connection to terrorists might have needed to be looked into. He was politically introduced by Bill Ayers…. self admitted terrorist from the Weatherman Underground that bombed police stations in New York, the US capital building, and the Pentagon. Obama’s campaign was announced at Ayers’ home. Since then Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood…an organization that has been outlawed in every nation as a terror organization….every nation, but ours. Why is Obama backing the Muslim Brotherhood? Could be family ties. Obama’s half brother was placed on the terror watch list by Egypt for being the finance guy for the Muslim Brotherhood and having ties to Al Qaeda in northern Africa. Also, Egypt claims that Obama gave almost 800 billion tax payer dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood as bribes and payoffs through his half brother. Kind of interesting all those President Obama is a terrorist signs in Egypt following the downfall of Morsi there. Perhaps the connections should have been investigated in 2007-2008 before Obama became president. And isn’t it a bit curious that Obama has waived the law banning the funding and arming of terror organizations and funded and armed the Al Qaeda Syrian rebels. Aren’t our soldiers fighting Al Qaeda in Afghanistan? In the old days, that would have been called treason. So, it’s called foreign aid today? Perhaps if Obama’s links to terror had been investigates when his candidacy was announced at Bill Ayers’ home, we might never have had issues in Syria concerning arming of Al Qaeda.
            You know, believing all the negatives is easy when Obama’s own words or actions prove the negatives. As far as the conspiracy theories go, I’m taking a wait and see approach. But just because I am taking a wait and see approach on the conspiracies does not mean that I am not preparing for them to be true. It would be unwise to not be prepared.
            Engaging politically…pass, your view are far too liberal for me. You have drank the KoolAid and believe Obama can do no wrong. You are part of the problem, you are part of the sheeple.

            No. The CRA of 1964 was passed by a bipartisan group of congresspeople, and those who opposed it were also bipartisan. The unifying factor of those who opposed it is that nearly all came from the South. The same is true of the VRA of 1965; it was also a bipartisan effort.

            The opposition of both of those bills was led by Strom Thurmond, who was a democrat at the time but switched to Republican in intervening years. Additionally, most of the seats which sent the people opposed to the CRA/VRA to Congress (whether in the Senate or the House) have since been filled with Republicans.

            These links provide a good breakdown of what happened with the individual bills as well as the larger shift in demographic trends that led away from Democrats being the party of racial segregation like they were from the 1840’s through the 1960’s and to where we are now, where the Republicans are the party that currently holds up that legacy.

            I don’t understand your objection. Do you object to the source? The CRA/VRA and Southern Strategy are well-documented political bills/trends, Wikipedia’s summaries of them are fairly apt. If you feel that they’re somehow unfair or otherwise inaccurate, Wikipedia is community editable. If you can provide documentation that the information contained in those articles is inaccurate, you’re welcome to provide your evidence for editing them and bring them more into line.

            Otherwise, I’m not sure why you’re so immediately dismissive.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Actually, I claimed the wikipedia links proved my point….just redundant. Racist Democrats were voted out of office and replaces with Republicans.

          • Eric Boersma

            Who are also racist. That was the point that was being made.

          • Michael Lawrence

            I don’t have to look any farther than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, Michelle Obama, and Barrack Obama to see the modern face of Democrat racism.

          • Eric Boersma

            That’s not a rebuttal. It’s a non-sequitur. Whether or not some members of the Democratic party may or may not be racist is not related to whether or not southern congressional representatives from the Republican party are racist.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Interestingly, you did not deny my statement as being true.

          • Eric Boersma

            I can’t argue whether or not your statement is true or false because you didn’t assert anything. You made a vague allusion to some black Democrats, implying something about racism, but you never actually accused any of them of being racist, and the fact remains that even if they are racist, their racism does not preclude racism on the part of southern Republicans, which is what we’re actually talking about.

            You made a remarkably poor attempt at shifting the conversation and then declared yourself the winner of the debate when I didn’t refute an assertion you haven’t actually made yet.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Those I named, I accuse of racism. Happy now?

          • Eric Boersma

            Nice! This is a good first step. Now, what’s your evidence for their racism? Simply making an assertion is insufficient for forming actual debate. Finally, if you wish to be taken seriously, you need to show how the racism of Al Sharpton or Michelle Obama is related to the racism of southern Republicans. Think you can take a swing at that?

          • Michael Lawrence

            Why do I need to show how the racism of Al Sharpton and Michelle Obama relate to “racism” of southern Republicans? it is your assertion that southern Republicans are racists, not mine. Perhaps you should make your case….oh wait, you will quote me the Southern Strategy again. Got anything else? Got anything solid. I have already agreed with you that the Southern strategy replaced racist liberal democrats for republicans. I did not say they were racist, you did.

            Al Sharpton….too easy.

            Sharpton attended a New Black Panther rally where George Zimmerman wanted dead or alive posters were handed out. Zimmerman had not been charged with a crime at the point that this rally happened. NBC, the Martin family lawyer, and Al Sharpton have been sued by Zimmerman for this rally and the violation of his civil rights. It is a tragedy that Trayvon Martin was shot, but justice should come from the courts, not the court of public opinion calling for the death of someone. Interestingly, 20-30 black people can be shot on any given weekend in Chicago and because the shooters are black, Al Sharpton gets absolutely no airtime, so he does not care. He only climbs out form under his rock when there is race baiting to be done.

            Take a good look at the photos in this article. Al Sharpton is clearly visible in the photos and so are the wanted posters being handed out.

            Tawana Brawley… she lied about being raped by several white men. A grand jury determined that she lied about the indecent…. But Al was right there race baiting the entire time. The Brawley family lawyers lost their licenses to practice and Brawley was sued by those she defamed with her story.

            Michelle Obama…. wow….

            This is a woman that sat in Reverend Jeremiah Wrights church every Sunday for 20 years and insisted on being married there. You can hardly say Wright is not a racist, he used to preach black liberation theology… a mix of racism and communism thinly veiled as religion. How do the Obama’s sit in this man’s church every Sunday for over 20 years and not know what kind of sermons he delivers? Do they actually think America is that stupid?

            Michelle Obama…2008…first time in her adult life she is proud of her country… Use government funds to go through college and law school, but not proud of her country for funding her education. Never proud of her nation for passing civil rights legislation, never proud of her nation for allowing minorities to vote, not proud of her nation for ending segregation…. OK…

        Well, it certainly would have taken away the race card….I disagree with that black man, but I agree with that black man…. The race card is a tool the leftards don’t want to lose from their tool box of deceit and lies.

        • bob_seifert

          The race card is all that they have in so many cases. And face it, the GOP has been paralyzed in fear of saying anything against Obama for fear of it being played. They don’t even challenge him because they fear it being played now without it ever being mentioned.

          If he was a white republican rolling out half the crap he has done the media would have crucified him by now. But they ADORE him. Even if he was a white democrat they would have had something to say, but because he is not white, they say nothing. He is the first affirmative action president and look what he brought us ..

          • Michael Lawrence

            Good points. I think you are right on, if Obama was white, he would not have nearly as much slack as he has been given. Race is a powerful card to play. It would be very interesting if that card were completely neutralized. I can honestly say, I would not like Obama’s polices even if he were white.

          • bob_seifert

            sadly, he ran on uniting the country and healing old wounds. He has divided us more than anyone in 100 years. He was in such a good position to do great things if he had wanted to. The problem is that he is really a racist himself, too radical and a closet socialist. Well i say closet, but he is out now isn’t he?

          • Samm_one

            Have you realized that you both sound ridiculous, I can tell you why. Your error is perspective. I will concede that not all conservatives are racist and that entire movement has been suffering from more than a bit of bad press in that regard. The problem is still you however, and your inability to see it and adjust.

            1. You people never stand up to the obvious racists among you . Those signs, slogans, and messages seen on the news, the internet are not an accident, and were never dealt with by your side. That level racism, sexism, and sentiment against illegal aliens shown by conservatives is the first view people have of the policies and principals offered by that side. What is never seen is more responsible and level headed members of the party. In fact those morons are ignored and embraced because idiots and backwards people vote.

            2. The Black people you choose to represent your cause simply suck. When dealing with the calls of racism from everywhere and an ethnic group where 90 percent will not vote for your cause, it is logical that you would try to put a few black people out front to speak for you. The problem there is you did not filter those choices though black people first, to be simple you ended up with morons and obvious sell-outs. Look at Kevin Jackson this guy is a sell out that does not help you at all. He spits hateful, stupid, ill-informed, counterproductive things without thinking of tone or audience. As smart as you may think he may be he is a hackneyed writer. Have you ever read what this moron writes, now filter it though the the perspective of someone that is black and in their 20’s not many people will follow this person, it’s ok that you guys like him but anyone who makes 90 percent of the statements he makes should never see the light of day. The person you want, has to be able to deal with those open racists openly, easily, and logically while sticking with core values in a non fanatical way. The closest you got was Michael Steele s he is now, but he was ruined 10 years ago trying to get up the GOP totem pole.

            3. Lying to yourself. The point that Obama did not Unite the country is solely on you and is not a point that should ever be brought up again. Tea partiers are essentially dressing up as slave owners and marching everywhere, this is really happening(the founding fathers were). What exactly did you think the narrative of that would be. It is the year 2013 and a small vocal group of people dressed like that, if that is not tone deaf I have no Idea what is. This is the legacy of the Southern Strategy look it up. Understand that black people know it happened if you don’t believe me look up Rand Paul’s visit to Howard University. Those are the voters you want to convert, but, and I will quote Others Peoples Money here Republicans want to have an increasing share of a dying market(old white people).

            The Presidents job is to be President not to build bridges with a crap ton of people given to racism. Wheat you are saying tonally looking at it from a different perspective is that Obama somehow should have fixed the problems in your party. That dog don’t hunt. That is why you fail.

          • bob_seifert

            You have to be the biggest troll on the planet.

            There are so many great black people that come forward that are conservative it goes without saying that you MUST BE A COMPLETE IDIOT not to see it.

            Secondly, Obama is the biggest divider we have EVER Seen in our country BAR NONE.

            Third, the TEA party does not dress up as Slave owners, they dress up as the people who freed us from tyranny you idiot.

          • Samm_one

            Name them. I will wait and concede the point if you can name them, and by that i mean people that black people consider great by at least 90 percent, that are speaking for your cause NOW.

            Obama by nature of his position is not a civil rights leader. What Obama did by nature of the position he attained is change the perceived power structure within this country. The response to this varied greatly, and upset quite a few. The worst responses to this perceived shift were from what is now known as the tea party which demographically usually middle aged moderately successful white people(look it up). I have no problem with that or white people I happen to love everybody, but to not notice it and understand how people who are not i that core demographic actually prooves my point about being tone deaf.

            Oh and the founding fathers were not slave owners, are you sure? Spoiler alert they were.So to dress like them is to dress like a, yep slave owner. I am not saying they were not great men in spite of this. What i meant to point out to you is that they were both and as the freed us from tyranny in tearms of black people you are a good 13 presidents short.

            See that that is the definition of tone deaf, and as always the surest way to know that someone is loosing a debate is the use of name calling. I have not called you names don’t do that. I welcome any intelligent debate, and find it a way to pursue and test Ideas supported by facts.

            Fun fact: In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized to the NAACP for ignoring the black vote and exploiting racial conflicts.

            That is from Wikipedia on this page

            en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy

            That is not trolling that is making a point in a debate using facts. The fact is that the republican party never secures more than 8 to 10 percent of the black vote, in large part because of itself. Which is why I say the problem is you. Be able engage in discourse without name calling and try again.

          • bob_seifert

            Dr. Ben Carlson puts Obama to SHAME daily to start.
            Deneen Borelli, Alan Keys, Allan West, Senator Elbert Guillory

            here’s your racism .. jack wagon http://youtu.be/P1CLPhz0DHM

            For the facts of the matter, Obama tells people to “vote out of spite” no leader of our country has ever done that before. Nor have they ever had a leader of the justice department let people get off on sentencing because of the color of their skin saying “my people have suffered enough already” as in the new black panthers” Nor have they ever injected themselves in incidents like Zimmerman saying “travon would have looked like me”

            he is attempting to divide the country, economically, politically, racially – he is the biggest divider in the history of our country. You do not take the greatest country on earth in history and try to “fundamentally change” it unless you want it to go bad do you?

            Furthermore, TROLL of TROLLS before i end this discussion and end any further discussions with you because I know what you are – wikipedia IS NOT a source to quote from as it is open source and able to be changed by anyone at any time. I am well aware of history.

            Much like today, American history had it’s problems. We had some slave owners in our beginnings – but not all of them were .

            The TEA PARTY REPRESENTS people who fight the tyranny of being TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY.

            Too bad that the DNC – and the Obots like yourself come from the portion of the party that were the slave owners. The ones who wanted to keep the status quo. The ones who wanted to keep people on the plantation and still do – through big government. Obamacare, food stamps, EBT cards, higher taxes, social programs and the ability to keep people from working through massive regulations.

            You and your kind have just turned your white hoods from the days of the KKK in for other items now and talk different, but your goals are the same and still work just as well. Under Obama’s plans and rhetoric with the democrats using him as a puppet Blacks and other minorities have suffered the worst. Losing homes, jobs and economic stability since his reign of terror. But that is good for you guys. Because the more they hurt the more that they anger right?

            And the more that they anger, the more you can lie and say that it is the TEA party who is making it happen. But in fact it has been Obama pushing his orders through every time with Executive orders anyway, ignoring the will of the congress for the past 5 years unchecked like a KING.

            The TEA Party has been accused of all kinds of things that are not true. NOT ONE OF THEM and I will tell you why. Racism is a crime now. All these acts that you PRETEND happen, would have been caught on tape, but nobody has EVER ONCE BEEN ARRESTED in the thousands of marches. NOT ONE.

            But hundreds of people who march for Occupy and SEIU people have been and they march for Obama … yet media gives them scant attention.

            Samm YOU ARE an Obama troll, you hunt every site to try and prop up King Obama, attempting to discredit the things that he has done to tear down our great nation. But the people know. They see it in their daily lives. They feel it when they go shopping. They see it when their bills come due and they have less and less to pay for them in their checking accounts. Yet KING OBAMA and Queen Moocher are off on yet another multi Million dollar vacation at the taxpayers expense.

            YES Obama is the great divider. Telling us we should not earn so much, that we need to spread the wealth around, meanwhile the middle class has become poorer, the poorest in modern times according to Jimmy Carter

            http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_JIMMY_CARTER_HABITAT?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2013-10-07-23-47-05

            but you don’t care, you and you’re ilk just want to prop up Obama who will undoubtedly will go down as the great divider who destroyed the United States of America, the once greatest Nation on the Face of the earth.

          • Samm_one

            1. Not more than 10 percent of black people think that any of the people you mentioned are great by ant stretch of the imagination 8 percent on a average day. hint Condoleezza Rice might have better to proove your point black people respect her, even if they do not like her.

            2. this is response to your one video made to make you fell better.

            https://www.google.com/search?q=tea+party+racism&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

            The images are helpful I think. Again I never accused any entire group of racism. I pointed out perception.

            3. Exactly how was that divisive, the law in Florida was changed not because of a president, but because of the public outcry over something perceived to be unjust. Something that would not sit well with voters. Your comment shows your lack of experience in those situations where you have to deal with perception.

            4. Wikipeia has a community of moderators that work to keep false information from the net. I when I see your sources and not your emotion I will respect them . Don’t have any do you.

            5. This is most important, so pay attention closely. I am a 34 year old black man whose mother was in SCLC if you doubt this I can put you on 3 way with people you wish that you knew. Trust me they like neither you or your views. So your KKK reference is the dumbest thing that I have ever seen. Know who you are talking to first. The recession cost a lot of people their homes. It was the single biggest financial calamity since the depression. It was underway when Obama took the White House.

            https://www.google.com/search?q=great+recession&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

            6. Have you actually read tax policy Since Obama took office taxes are down for about 90 percent of the U.S. population. Well down from what they were during the 70’s. Do not come with that bull.

            7. The rest of this your statement is just retread and crap. To be honest with you I was never the biggest Obama supporter, and disagree with half of his policies. I do not like his stance on guns, NSA spying (but then you would have to review the Patriot Act, which was not done by this administration), whistle-blowers, spying on the press, etc. I am by nature a moderate, and follow no one blindly. I just find the alternative to Obama unacceptable. I have seen how you argue, and some of the people on you side seem to be the most closed minded, myopic people ever. People who would rather spew their emotions than deal with a debate over facts. That is why your poll numbers are what they are now. Rather than debate facts, you do what has been shown here that is trolling plain and simple.

            Until you and people like you can get your facts in order, deal seriously with the birthers, and other morons you have nothing to add to the broader political discourse of this country, and will be relegated as you have, do better maybe people will listen. Do not post until you can. Unltl then troll this is how you will be sen

    • http://gamewhen.com/ Michael T

      None of us should be accused of racism for merely disagreeing with — or criticizing — someone of a different race than we are.

      The term racist used to apply almost exclusively to whites who exhibited words and actions suggesting they thought they were superior to blacks,

      It has been expanded in the public domain to persons of any race who exhibit this behavior, which complies with the dictionary definition.

      These societal conventions have been complicated by far too many people who conflate ‘racial’ and ‘racially insensitive’ with racist — mostly by those on the left (but not exclusively).

      We could all benefit from a more exacting description (or use of language) when describing someone’s controversial diatribes.

      • Michael Lawrence

        I agree with the concept of your statement. However, conservatives have, in fact, been called racist by those on the left for their disagreement with Obama’s policies. I also agree that racism can be a term applied to a person of any race. You seem to miss the ironic humor of my point. Turning the tables on those of the left that have been calling conservatives racist for disagreeing with Obama’s policies. I think it would be karmic justice if a black Republican were elected and those on the left that disagree with his policies were then labeled racist. The left would also have a difficult time saying that conservatives are racist for disagreeing with one black man’s policies while agreeing with a different black man’s policies. Oh the conundrum they would have.

        • http://gamewhen.com/ Michael T

          Fair point about karmic justice and the potential conundrum of your thought provoking hypothetical.

          Although you would probably agree that liberals would be more inclined to use “Uncle Tom” than “racist” to disparage a black Republican president.

          It’s such a shame that race has to enter into it at all. Some of it from both sides is cringe-worthy at times.

      You really think leftards care? They have the appetites and mores of sharks, but without the charms.

      George Bush was no Ronald Reagan. Bush’s policy of big government is not so different than that of the Democrats.

The Prescription Drug Plan and the No Child left Behind Act of Bush were not very good examples GWB’s accomplishments. The prescription drug plan is totally unsustainable and please tell me what part of the Constitution gives the Federal government a say so in how our children are educated? Do tell, please. And before you a attack a conservative that strongly believes in small government and restoring our Constitutional Republic you need to read what I was saying.

  • get-it-on

    Blacks voted for Obama (95+%) because he is Black and reelected him for the same reason even though he has driven them further into poverty. No racism here however, just a sense of pride in having a Black man elected to the Presidency (regardless of his lack of qualifications). After seeing what this Black man has done to this country, you’re damn right we want a White conservative running things again – no racism here either, just pragmatic analytical thought on how to salvage what’s left of the good old USA.

    • Yahoo mail

      People of Color do not vote in a monolithic block. There were
      varied motivations for people of all races to vote for President Obama.
      Remember, Obama is as much Caucasian as he is African
      American. In addition; it was a “White” president who collapsed the
      economy of this country; leaving Obama to try and salvage the wreckage
      (just pragmatic analytical thought).

      • houdini1984

        Blacks actually do vote in something resembling a monolithic fashion: they can be counted on to vote Democrat at a 90% or higher rate at the Presidential level. Most people would agree that that is as close to monolithic as any voting bloc is likely to get.

        With that said, it should be noted that blacks did not vote for Obama simply because he was black. As a Democrat, he was guaranteed to get around nine out of every ten black votes, regardless of the color of his skin.

        • Yahoo mail

          Your statement is incomplete. Voting preferences has little
          to do with skin complexion. Factors such as: Social Class,
          Age, Geographical location, Education, among other influences, have more bearing. For example; The under 30 years of age group of voters tend to vote Democratic.
          Upper middle-class/Business Southern Caucasians tend
          to vote Republican. Northeastern Educated Caucasians
          and Middle Class ‘Berkley’ types tend to vote Democratic.
          Southern rural working class tend to vote Republican…..
          So, based on the habits of these groups, it is incorrect to say that “Blacks” all vote the same way. It seems that every group, for various reasons, vote according to their conscience, and what is appropriate for self and family.

          • houdini1984

            “Your statement is incomplete. Voting preferences has littleto do with skin complexion.”

            So? Did I say that those voting habits had anything to do with skin color? Nope. You said that they didn’t vote in a monolithic manner, and I merely pointed out that their voting habits are so close to monolithic that they might as well be considered monolithic.

            And again, I did not say that blacks ALL vote the same way, so stop trying to suggest that I did. What I said is 100% accurate. And if you had any reading comprehension whatsoever, you would also notice that I said that the color of Obama’s skin was not the determining factor in why he received even more than the traditional 90% that most Democrats enjoy. Here: let me show you

            “it should be noted that blacks did not vote for Obama simply because he was black.”

            There. That was from my previous post. As I noted, skin color is not the deciding factor that explains why blacks vote Democratic 90% of the time. So what exactly are you arguing with – other than to suggest that I said something that I didn’t.

            Sheesh… come back and talk to me after your drugs wear off…

            I actually DID agree with a portion of your statement. If

            (incomplete).
            The “drug” reference was childish, and I believe, beneath
            you, because you express yourself so well.

            Well, Yahoo (I feel funny even addressing you by your screen name, given the likelihood that others might think I am insulting you), I will happily apologize for the flippant reference to drug use (though if it makes you feel any better, I wasn’t implying illegal drugs – just that you might be heavily medicated). I formally withdraw the statement in its entirety.

            I attribute that lapse of judgment to a momentary episode of frustration at having my words twisted to say something that I obviously did not say. I now feel safe in assuming that that was not your intent. Unfortunately, I have grown accustomed to experiencing those tactics from angry leftist posters and projected my frustration with them onto you. Please accept my sincerest apologies. I meant no harm.

            In light of this last exchange of posts, I can see that we do have broad room for agreement. You take care as well.

    • get-it-on

      95+% and you say not “monolithic”, please you are surely delusional. Then why doesn’t Obama and the media refer to Obama as a “White African” as they did Zimmerman a “White Hispanic”? Obama’s disdain for Whites is as clear as the bias in your comments. Incidentally, there were many factors that led to the collapse of our economy – primarily the Democrats insistence on giving sub-prime loans. Obama has “merely” exacerbated the problem with his socialist policies.

      Don’t forget Col. Allen West.

      • Tagdogs

        You’re absolutely right. He would also be a great President.

      Oh Please. Race does NOT have a place with we American Patriots. The ONLY Racists are Democratic Socialists and Enemies of America. Barack Obama and Eric Holder are 2 examples of Racist in America today. …and they are both Socialist Enemies of America.

  • CherryAnn1000

    I have no problem with people of color being prez; I would have voted for Herman Cain. A white prez is fine, but Republican? How about just conservative and skip the political label.

    • houdini1984

      Well, if you can find any real conservative Democrats in this day and age, by all means bring them to the party. I haven’t run into any for decades now…

      Edit: Then again, it occurs to me that you might be referring to independent conservatives, or other non-Democrat candidates who are openly conservative. In that case, I certainly agree 100%!

  • antheaura

    I understand what you said, and I see from the replies on here…that MOST missed the point entirely. Everyone is so scatter-shy from the peppering of PC enforcement, they can’t even speak straight when they want to. So much for a republic gone communist.

    • Retired Marine MSgt

      The Republic hasn’t gone Communist, just a portion of the so called leadership.

      • antheaura

        Seems like an exercise in semantics. With a communist leader, and apparently 50% of the population who thinks that’s just great, at what point do you own it? We need to get rid of this bunch of reds while we stil breathe!

  • Fed UP

    Kevin Jackson is cool. He’s able to see how the liberals are wreaking havoc on this country and blaming everything on racism, bigotry or wealth. I was born into a poor family of eight kids, I am white and I was raised with morals, good work ethic and taught right from wrong. Despite my initial happiness of having a first black president I am now totally saddened by what he represents.

  • ConscienceCit

    America will never elect a fraud again thanks to Obama or fall for bought votes! Color has NOTHING to do with it! Col West, Ben Carson, Herman Cane are the top 3 that proves there are still qualified men out there that believe in America’s form of republic gov, and exceptionalism!

  • CCblogging

    I am now a fan of Kevin Jackson and The Black Sphere. Kevin has great perception and insight. However, I must disagree with Kevin on one point. I simply believe that the “wrong” black man was elected. Obama made his start by dividing people and he doesn’t know or use any other way but division. Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim rabble rouser. Had Herman Cain been elected, there would have been much more harmony between the races. I saw right through Obama and did not vote for him the first or second time. Beware of anyone who says he is going to change a great Republic like America. Patriots, in November 2014, you have another chance to take out the trash!

    • CharlieFromMass

      You are right. Obama was the wrong black man. I say that black people should have a do over. This time, look at the person’s character, experience and background, anything but the color of the skin.

    Obama isn’t an American so his loyalty to black Americans is nil. No, obama’s loyalty is with the Muslims and he said so himself in a book he wrote.

  • Sam

    People suffered from “magical thinking” when they elected obama. I go by what the Bible teaches which is that you can tell a tree by its’ fruit.

  • gtm615

    I’m not sure I totally agree. What if we had a good, common sense, black president like Carson or West? Would the media now accuse Democrats of being racist for attacking them, Or could we attack the media as being racist for not supporting either of them? Think about it, suddenly the tables would be turned right back at them for doing the very thing for which they accused us of being racists.

    • CommieKillah

      I would possibly vote for Carson. I don’t know much about Mr. West, but I’m fixing to research his information.

      • patgo

        Allen West is a solid conservative. He’d be a great candidate.

  • David Hedricks

    If I had a President, he’d look like Ronald Reagan …

  • ONLYJB1

    Kevin, WOW! You called it as you saw or see it! I believe you to be right on, but no politician will discuss this, nor will the lame stream socialist media! It’s way past time to make Americans own it! If you vote on it, own it!
    As I write the Conservative GOP needs to make obama and the Senate own obamacare. How? You ask.

    The Congress will pass everything you want except for one thing. With obamacare there are no exemptions. NONE! Even the retired politicians must fall under obamacare coverage! Now Comrade, own it or destroy it!

  • Pat

    I did not vote for Obama. I didn’t like his policies and didn’t trust him. Instead, I voted for McCain, a white Republican. Ugh! I would have voted for Cain, had he survived his follies. I would right now vote for Keyes or West or Carson as well as some Hispanics who I trust and respect. Moreover, I think our black population deserves better, regardless of whether they seem to have largely cast their vote for a clear loser. I would be embarrassed if a white president acted in the manner that Obama does and should be impeached just as Obama should do for grave disservice to our country.

    • Heylottylotty

      We all know that being a racist has nothing to do with the race doing the blaming or the acting out. It has to do with leverage. Most people today don’t have a clue what “racist” even means. Actually it has little to do with skin color or familial origin. It has more to do with cultural history. Grouping all people who are Southerners as pro-slavery is racist. Assuming that a majority of Southerners owned or even knew slaves, is racist. Slavery was well in affect in Africa before the slave trader ships got in on it. Tribes sold or traded “slaves” on a regular basis. Some arabic religions still support the act while many people of color insist these religions are to their benefit. Where does it end? It can end with us. It must end within the community we are from first. Stop it in the family, the friends, the associates, and the politicians that are using it against us as American citizens. It is not about name calling or “pet” names for each other. It is about common human respect. Aretha
      Franklin coined the truth through her song of the same name. If blacks are not the majority racists then why are there “black Caucus”, black college groups, black entertainment(magazines, TV and radio programs, black educational funds, etc.? Why do the black people allow it (and support it??)

  • maryatlanta

    I do not think it is or should be a black or white issue. Col. Allan West or Dr. Ben Carson are capable human beings who could lead this great nation. I get the point about white Republicans but that is not the issue – the issue is conservatism.

This thin skinned “Girly man” is the sorriest excuse for a President in our history, and every major country on this earth knows it, and laughs at the American voters for putting a numb-nutted moron in the most powerful position on earth!! Obama is in so far over his head it is criminal, and he is taking us with him. The really scary part is, if in fact he is half as intelligent as idiots like Chris Matthews and Rachael Maddow say he is, then he knows he is totally incompetent! Unfortunately, this skinny meglo maniac has an ego that just won’t allow him to do the right thing and resign!!

  • brucefandrews

    Intelligent Black Americans did not vote for Obama and some are vocal in the support of removing him from office. This is a greater tragedy than the black community appears to know or understand. It has brought to light the abhorrent education system in the United Stated of America, especially in the black communities. When The supposed best that the black community has is the likes of Obama.

    It is to be expected when the black community in America is mostly corrupt. The black fathers for the majority are not respectful of the woman they impregnate. All children learn by example and each community is reflective of the parents.

    This being the case what did we think would be the result of electing a black, deceptive politically corrupt and immoral without integrity person. The majority of those that voted for Obama are exactly like him. This being reality America needs a person of high integrity, with Christian values. A person that is not a professional politician. A leader who can clean up the country. Who will shrink the size and scope of government. One with the skills to debate not only with each party but also with other heads of state.

    This being the long form answer to the question, “do we need a White president”. Answer a resounding YES!

    • CommieKillah

      actually, the best the black community has is someone like this gentleman who wrote this article, or someone like Dr. Ben Carson.

      • brucefandrews

        Thank you for your comment. Dr. Ben Carson would have been a great President. Dr. Ben Carson is probably the top black today, even though he came from a broken home Dr. Ben Carson is a strong Christian and supports and lives Christian values.

  • David P. Turnbole

    Oh why can’t you admit it. You pushed it from the KKKoch brothers’ agenda. Take down the black man in the White House. But no. It’ ISN’T just about his race. It’s about the greed of the ultra rich wanting another deep south agenda, another civil war to return blacks to slavery, the poor to destitution, the children of the poor back to work in sweat shops, just like they are in Bangladesh and other third world countries the billionaires use to manufacture their garbage. A Constitutional lawyer and Harvard professor seems like the perfect man to be in charge of this country, rather than the alternative we had. A vulture capitalist that would have stripped the country of it’s profitable segments, turned them into private enterprise that he could award to his companies, just as Cheney and Bush did with two unfunded wars. If you are millionaires then continue to believe a white man in the White House would turn the country around. Meanwhile, remember who was in office when your 401k tripled.

    • William

      You simply aren’t smart enough to comprehend real facts. For trolls like you, its far easier to pretend to have intellect while ignoring the reality of Obama’s failure to lead.

      • David P. Turnbole

        My goodness William. So much hatred for your fellow man. My intellect comes from looking at both sides of an issue, looking into the reasoning behind why the Teathguligoons are doing what they said they would do before even elected by idiots like you. Now I didn’t want to have to point out your ignorance but it shows when you use such foul language to attack someone that doesn’t agree with your KKKoch sucking commentary.

  • Jeffrey Liggens

    Although there are White people who agree with Kevin Jackson, many other intelligent White people see what he is doing; he is a self-serving, race-baiting idiot he accuses Al Sharpten of, making himself quite the hypocrite. All he has done here is spoken in general terms about what “he thinks Black people are and want”. He gives non-Black people whom are racist against Black people a pass. In the end, they see him as a traitor to his own race, as well as an “uncle Tom”. He as a Black person uses the race card as currency to those who traffic in such. But one day when he matures, he will have to eat the bread he’s baking, and lay in the bed he’s making, and he will be one miserable person when he faces the truth of who he has been, in order to have been accepted in certain circles.

    • Scott

      wow, how uninformed can you be, I guess you didn’t read the article. Just you calling him an uncle tom is more racist than anything he has said….Libs name calling=normal.

      • Jeffrey Liggens

        You ask me if I read his post, but you obviously didn’t read my post…with any comprehension. I DID NOT SAY KEVIN JACKSON WAS AN UNCLE TOM. I said racist White people will see him as an Uncle Tom, and a traitor to his own race. After being republican for 19 straight years, I couldn’t stand the lying, hypocritical rhetoric, and became Independent, for whatever that’s worth to you. By the way, I don’t comment on ANY article unless I have read it fully. Nor do I comment on ANYONE’S post before reading it fully, unlike you. You don’t know if you are going or coming. Get a clue.

        • LastNameFirst

          The problem with this comment you just made is; white people don’t use the phrase, ‘Uncle Tom’. That is something used by only the black population, as well as some other phrases that I won’t mention here. The REAL issue is that there are racists in every skin color, nationality, race, etc. There always has been and until people learn to accept one another beyond their skin color, or lack of as one commenter said, making me laugh, we will always have race issues.
          Skin color, as well as party affiliation, is the two worst things dividing this country. If we don’t get beyond these 2 things, we will destroy our country.

          • Jeffrey Liggens

            Umm…I see you may not do much reading about people of note, including White political figures. One ex-president Richard Nixon, among many other “white political figures” is quoted to have derogatorily referred to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as an “uncle Tom”. Needless to say, this was not one of his terms of endearment. There are many racist White people who refer to Black people who appear to do just about anything to be accepted in certain White circles as being “Uncle Toms”. But oh; it gets worse. Shall I say it? I don’t pretend to know what your race is; but if you are White, maybe you don’t stoop so low as to use these slanderous terms against Black people. But you speak for yourself, and for nobody else. Good for you; thank you for living above it.

          • Scott

            Hmmmmm Nixon that’s a little old!! I think some of this goes beyond name calling!! Black people today along with there liberal taskmasters berate and belittle conservative blacks. They believe they are not black if they are not democrat, they are racist in the strongest sense of the word. Also, you went around it by saying that’s what OTHER whites will say, while I and others posting here saw where you were going with your ignorant statement about ‘others’.

      personally, I like what he has to say. I’m not a fan of Reagan, but that has more to do with the fact that he destroyed the American steel industry than anything. Fact is, is that when whites are in charge anywhere, anywhere becomes an advanced civilization.

    • Heartcom

      Same old liberal response: if you can’t dispute the facts, character assassinate the writer.

    • Pezdrake

      But he said he’s not racist! Of course, the only way he thinks someone can be racist is to try to be racist and admit to it. Otherwise it’s just reverse discrimination and poor him, the white man is the victim again.

    • Jason Hunt

      Is a black person who believes in God an Uncle Tom simply because white people believe in Him?

      • Jeffrey Liggens

        Do you walk backwards too? You certainly talk that way. How is it, you can falsely accuse me of making “white people the standard”, and say nothing about the author of this ridiculous article’s theme about wanting a “white republican president”? Who’s making White people the standard? Him or me? Now I know this is difficult for you, being that it’s obvious and all…take your time; it’ll come to you.

    • Heylottylotty

      While your comments are anti-white on so many views, I would only challenge you on one simple comment. You mention “Uncle Tom” as if he was a traitor to his race. First I must protest that you could not possibly have read the book where that character is used. “Uncle Tom” was a slave of highest standards, a Christian, a loyal husband, and supporter of his people. Second we all need to stop the childish name calling and defamation of character. It is so demeaning to civility. You may want to consider what is happening within S. Africa as the black population begin a purge of non-blacks. Just as Winnie Mandela said about her “necklace” (def. a tire around a white person filled with kerosene and set afire.) there are so many hidden agendas in the black culture that hate whites, there is no justification in condemning the whites for having a prejudice toward the “unknown” values eschewed by non-whites. We all need to stop the “oneupmanship” and either be Americans or find a home elsewhere. A return to a “white president” would symbolize the openness of communications between races rather than the strain being promoted today by the current (so called) black leadership.

      • Jeffrey Liggens

        You’re another person who apparently skipped class when it came to reading with comprehension. QUOTE ME WORD VERBATIM WHERE I CALLED ANYONE A NAME. Proof that you don’t read with comprehension is you have falsely judged my comments to being “anti-White”. Am I really speaking that far above your head? I could break it down for you to the level of puree, but you’re just going to have to figure this one out. Chock it up to being a growth moment for you. Re-read my post; get someone else to help you understand it, then come back and comment on it. As it stands, because of your lack of understanding of what I said, you do not qualify to judge my comments. You got homework to do.

    • Scott

      ‘White people see what he is doing; he is a self-serving, race-baiting idiot he accuses Al Sharpten of, making himself quite the hypocrite.’ You didn’t call him names, you went around that by saying others!

  • Valerie Ploch

    No, absolutely not,unless, maybe it is Cruz…but I am not sure right now! He is in the wrong on illegals and amnesty. I swore after McCain, that I would never again hold my nose while voting for the “lesser of the evils” and I will not do it! I can’t see the difference in most of the GOP and the Dems and liberals!

    • LastNameFirst

      No, Cruz is absolutely right about illegals and amnesty. Reagan signed the amnesty back in ’86 with the agreement from the dems that the border would be secured and it was only suppose to be 850,000. It turned out to be 3 million and the border is still NOT secured. Reagan said agreeing to the dems demands on that bill was the biggest mistake he ever made.
      These people have broken our laws. What makes you think that they are going to obey the laws after they get the amnesty? I work with them on an almost daily basis. I’ve talked to many who have come to our country legally, including my ex of 20 years; every single one of them say ‘send them home and make them do it the legal way.
      The border should be secured before any consideration of amnesty. After it is secured, then discussions of easing the entry can be started and worked on. But nothing until the border gets secured!!!!!

      • jayleigh

        That’s what my American Hispanic friends say, too! They came here legally and they worked hard to gain their citizenship, and they resent the amnesty venomously! They still enjoy their culture, but they put on the biggest and grandest 4th of July celebration ever! And i am proud to celebrate that day with them! They worked hard to learn English, they work hard and are solvent, own their own homes, are NOT on welfare, and are proud Americans!

  • Joseph Jr Vanchieri

    @davidpturnbole:disqus Wow, that is the biggest bunch of crap that I have read in a long time. Take down the “black man”? The black community has been given by far more breaks and “free stuff” than any other group in our history and probably in the world. Look at the cities run by liberal Democrats. They are a cesspool of gangs and drug dealers. School drop out rates are at 95%. This is due to what can only be explained as ” dumbing down ” the inner city populous. Most are multi-generation welfare families kept in poverty by the very liberals they vote for. The Democrats voted against freeing slaves and then against them voting. They run the KKK ( thank God they are small now). You have little to talk positive about. Yes there are bad Republicans and they have done things wrong but never in our history have we had a President who ” won’t negotiate”. That calls names and shakes his finger at patriots because they value their freedoms. So you can talk all the garbage you want. History and Congressional records don’t lie. Dang, I hope you wake up before we have no rights at all.

    • screagle101

      Breaks and free stuff like what?

  • ChildofELOHIM

    Would the author of this article, Kevin Jackson, find Alan Keyes a suitable candidate for the Republican nomination for president of the United States in 2016??!!

    Alan Keys has served America, and I do believe that he even worked for Reagan!! However, that did not stop him from being roughed-up by Republican thugs/operatives as he attempted to enter various forums where Republican debates were taking place!!?? I remember seeing this on TV; absolutely… disgusting!!!!

    I remember a quote that was “credited” to Reagan regarding civil rights: ‘… you ought to be able to hire anyone that you want to hire!’ How is equal protection under the law maintained under a president that would make such an insensitive statement???!!!

    Also, I believe that if one does enough research, it will be confirmed that Reagan supported a group of southern Republicans that didn’t wish for the voter protection act to be extended!? The reasoning was non-racial for public consumption, of course!! These so-called representatives of the [all] people did not wish to see blacks.. vote!!! Why??!! They considered [southern] blacks to be communist in their political ideology!!!???

    Needless to state, if these blacks were, in fact, communist… I wounder what would have caused them to be so, with such fine racists representatives that met with Reagan that day????!!!!

    Furthermore, if one does further research, it will be confirmed that in the very recent history of that period, it was not far removed from the disgraceful history of racist even murdering blacks for merely attempting to register to vote!! I could on, however, it is a safe bet that Reagan, considered among African Americans, will never win any type of statesmanship awards!! Had he used his popularity to bring all peoples together, we would not find our nation in the current situation that it is currently in!!!!

    • RELMS

      Of course, like all liberals, who are driven by mindless hatred, you miss the point of Jackson’e article: we need to get away from all well-deserved criticisms of the president being labeled “racist.”

      Writer Jackson is not only black but also conservative, as is Alan Keyes, and Jackson would certainly support the presidential candidacy of Keyes, if for no other reason that criticism of President Keyes, a black Republican, would never be labeled racist!

      You also criticize Reagan for saying, “You ought to be able to hire anyone that you want to hire” as a violation of “equal protection.” What about “equal protection” for those doing the hiring? “Equal protection” for only one part of a society at the expense of the other definitely does not qualify as “equal.”

      • ChildofELOHIM

        First of all, my friend, when you you start off with terms or expressions like, “…mindless hatred,” you do so slander me!! However, should I understand from such language that in reality, you are really a “liberal”, in denial?! Or what I have written is essentially over your head??!! If it is the latter, please just ask a question; I don’t mind responding! Otherwise, please feel free to become a registered “Communist”, I mean, “Democrat”!!

        As a further example of your slander, “… we need to get away from all well-deserved criticisms of the president being labeled “racist.” I couldn’t agree… more!!! It is disgraceful that every time that when the president is criticized, some how the person making a “quantitative statement” specific to an Obama program and in opposition to Mr. Obama’s position is some how denigrated and nominated as a possible candidate for the KKK!!!

        Moreover, Mr. Obama desperately needs to stop name-calling, much like you do; he also needs to remove himself from certain “hand positions” that can be interpreted to communicate a “certain” pejorative that is quite literally in his 800# for Obama{don’t]Care; such behavior is totally unfitting the office of the president of the United States; along with those evil stares, i.e., President Putin; Republican leadership; and I am certain that it does not stop there!!

        Finally, given the more than “racist” history of our nation; just how would you address the documented discrimination that has so plagued and disenfranchised African Americans??!!

        I am always waiting for someone to come-up with that grand idea or ideal that will finally bring blacks into the role of “stakeholders” and deliver them from the bondage of “victim-hood”, which we all pay for in various forms!! If the current status quo is fine with you, please have the courage to state so??!!

        • RELMS

          I believe that someone who claims to be writing over my head should first learn the difference between slander and libel.

          It also would reflect at least an elementary level of education to understand that “driven by mindless hatred” is not name-calling.

          You also apparently have been away from Earth too long not to have noticed all the effort (money, entitlements, school busing, affirmative action) that has gone into addressing discrimination against blacks.

          And you are deliberately ignoring the reality of very successful blacks, who have availed themselves of opportunities often denied to whites versus the self-destructive reality of preferential living in a government-supported welfare culture or of peer pressure that prevents blacks from acting “too white” (that is, following a course to success).

          And there is no black “bondage of victimhood.” Blacks seek that supposed circumstance willingly and eagerly because they can capitalize handsomely on it.

          I must admit, however, that I admire your self-restraint in omitting “slavery” from your disorganized diatribe. But it might have been interesting to discuss the surprisingly large number of black slave-owners in America (it’s not at all surprising in Africa).

          • ChildofELOHIM

            Oh, RELMS, you have written so much and in a very disjointed fashion!! However, I will attempt to decipher your ramblings!

            But, I will start off by asking since you represent yourself as knowing so much about African Americans… just where do you get your information from??!! A direct responsive answer to this question, please?! If it is a skinhead / KKK rally, do admit your shame and sin and repent of it!!

            However, I do have the very distinct impression that you are not black; and nor do you really have a grasp of the human experience! The venom and the acidic nature of your comment gave you away!!

            Furthermore, from what you have written, it does appear that you have very little problem in “libeling” and “slandering” black Americans!! Did you read the article on the front page of USA Today, about black Marines that were treated “so badly” that they were ashamed to tell any one that they had served in the… Marine Corps!! How does that happen, RELMS???!!! One the most honored and elite fighting units in the world… and many of them had never told anyone!! Why, RELMS??!!

            As far as, ” It also would reflect at least an elementary level of education to understand that “driven by mindless hatred” is not name-calling.” I am not quite sure what you mean by that, however, once one has advanced well beyond an “elementary level” one does grasp the “condescending” level that your statement, may, seem to imply!! Hopefully, one day you will , personally, catch-up to the next level… but, I sincerely hope that it not too late for you!!

            If I may digress for just a moment… exactly where do you plan to spend eternity, RELMS?! You do know that there are no “bigots” in Heaven??!!

            Yes, RELMS, I do spend time away from Earth! I do so enjoying spending time in the Kingdom with so many of my Brothers and Sisters, the Saints of the Most High, LORD, GOD of Israel!!!

            Where do you go RELMS to pick-up all of that toxic venom that you so do enjoy spewing???!!! I could speculate; however, I would prefer that you tell me!!

            In any event, I will attempt to answer your question? However, it is / was written from the perspective of one, apparently, being an “idolater”!!!

            But, just how many programs have you ever known, administered by this government that ever ‘bears much fruit’?! I would have to think about it; but, I am sure that you can probably name 20 or 30 off the top of your head!!!???

            But, let’s see? America imposed “hundreds” of years of slavery; decades and scores of racism upon blacks… and maybe a very, very few years of so-called “affirmative action”!! And according to your math, RELMS, I speculate that you consider that… equity!!! And dare I say it… even justice!!

            Moreover, you do know what slavery did for America?? Another direct responsive answer to that question, please! And if you don’t know, and I have little doubt that you do, just admit that you don’t know!!!

            Also, RELMS, you have presented yourself as something of a history buff; so, when did slavery effectively end in America, and why???!!!

            Moreover, RELMS, from your writing I do surmise that you are not a Christian nor do you ever aspire to be!! However, what is GOD’s written WORD regarding “slavery” and “affirmative action”!! See what happens when one dedicates too much of their time playing “video games”??!! You know what they say, don’t you??!!

            Finally, I do so enjoy learning, so feel free to educate me regarding: “I must admit, however, that I admire your self-restraint in omitting “slavery” from your disorganized diatribe. But it might have been interesting to discuss the surprisingly large number of black slave-owners in America (it’s not at all surprising in Africa).”

            Please expound on that subject!! And please do so from both a perspective of a social observer and as one who has studied the Scriptures!! I hope you do know some true Christians, otherwise you will probably be well within the Tribulation before you figure that out!!??

            And again, RELMS, if my writing is still over your head, just ask specific questions! I do not mind responding! But, I did find Mr. Jackson’s piece very “patronizing”!! I is something that a “liberal” read and go away feeling good about him/ herself… or even a so-called “conservative”!!

            The fact that there are readers that sincerely admire Dr. Alan Keys and Dr. Benjamin Carson, as do I, demonstrates that everyone was not taken-in!!! So, what was / is your excuse?!

      • jayleigh

        Affirmative Action was a very bad thing. Only because many corporations hired any Black who applied because they wanted to prove that Blacks weren’t qualified for “real jobs” – it became a form of really bad policy. Blacks who were well-qualified for jobs were passed over and those who had no qualifications for the job were hired to make a point. Reagan’s point was that the best qualified person should be hired, not on the basis of color, race or ethnicity, or religion, and that the Constitution did not provide for any rule that made hiring by race mandatory. i know what the law was intended to do, it just didn’t do what it was intended. It hurt those it was intended to help. Quotas are always a bad idea. When i worked in pediatrics as a “nurse aide” in the 1960s when AA came in, the hospital hired a Black LPN who, in spite of her medical training, actually believed that if she raised her arms above her head (she was pregnant) she ran the risk of wrapping the umbilical cord around the baby’s neck and strangling it, and she believed that when a woman had her menstrual cycle, she needed to move all the plants out of the house so that she wouldn’t cause them to die. Now, i’m not saying that all Blacks believed those things, so don’t go off on me – in fact my best friend for more than 60 years is Black and she doesn’t believe any of that nonsense. What i AM saying is that this was an educated woman who was hired to prove that educating Blacks was a waste of time because they would still cling to their superstitions. THAT is a blatant lie, but those are the kind of stupid things that were the result of passing a quota law that was in itself unconstitutional. The AA officers actually looked for the unskilled, under-educated to prove a point that Blacks weren’t capable of doing the job. It made me angry to know this was going on! It made me angry that a whole race of people were being defined by those who did not have the skills or education to do the job, but were hired to be used as pawns. THAT was racist as much as the crackers in the South!

    • Toffee Fee

      Carson & Keyes in 2016. return honesty, intelligence, dignity and GOD to the USA!!!!

      • ChildofELOHIM

        Let’s place GOD, first!!!

        I am not familiar with Carson; however, if you sincerely feel that Carson is truly one that lends him/herself to be used of GOD then I am certainly interested and will pay close attention when I hear the name, in relation to the presidency!!

        • jayleigh

          You aren’t familiar with BEN CARSON? He is a pediatric neurosurgeon and a Godly man! He has been noted as the absolute top neurosurgeon in the world – especially for pediatric cases. Google him and you will see what a Godly man he is. Did you not hear, or hear about, his speech at the National Day of Prayer? Whoa! You have been out of tune for awhile. Look him up. He has written a book.He is bold, honest, and, i repeat, Godly!

          • ChildofELOHIM

            Toffee Fee went Hollywood on me… one name; do you really expect us to keep up with individuals on a “one” basis!? However, Dr. Benjamin Carson I am very familiar with! He is a member of the Brethren!!!

            And a ticket of Dr.’s Keyes and Carson would work very, very well for me… and I most sincerely hope the nation!!!

          • jayleigh

            Or Allen West! Yeah, i don’t understand the statement by Kevin Jackson about a “modicum of respect” if we had a white potus. i am not partial to any particular race serving in that capacity as long as that person runs a clean campaign, is honest and has no socialistic tendencies. Any person who truly loves the United States Constitution and believes we should live by it, and who is willing to fight for that blessed document and who has no designs on becoming dictator, well, i don’t care what color. i look for integrity in the person as well as the ability to LEAD from the front of the pack, not “lead from behind.” i look for someone the world will respect; someone who speaks “softly but carries a big stick” – not someone who talks big and then runs behind mama’s apron when the bully calls his bluff! Allen West would be good at that since he was a Military officer! Strength of character, a solid grounding in the U.S. Constitution, and an understanding of how to get Congress to work together. This POTUS is so partisan, he makes all those who are Iedpendents or GOP feel totally disenfranchised – he so blatantly lets us know he doesn’t like us because we don’t walk lock step with his plans!

          • ChildofELOHIM

            I agree!!

            Absolutely, anyone that cannot lend and commit themselves to be used of the LORD, GOD of Israel…should, absolutely, never be allowed to even run for the presidency of this ‘one nation founded under the GOD of Israel!!!!

      • jayleigh

        Or, Carson and West, or West and Keyes, Or….

    • William Rosen

      What is the definition of a racist? I believe it has something to do with making a judgement or decision or opinion of another person because of the color of their skin or ethnic background. Right! That being said, I believe all people who voted for Obama because they wanted the first black president and did not care much about his politics, are in fact, RACIST!!! That would include 95% of all voting blacks and Democrats in this country. Am I not correct???

      • ChildofELOHIM

        No! You are not correct; and for the following reasons!

        To begin with, the so-called news media never provided for
        Obama to be ever properly vetted!! Everyone just fawned all over him; whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics!!! Also, consider that blacks for possibly the last 30 years have voted, overwhelmingly, 90%++ for whatever has a “D” behind its name!!!??? The race of the D-people have little to do with it; the late mayor Daily of Chicago, ‘Boss Daily’, comes to mind!!!

        Also, please pray that the Devil is never, himself,
        nominated for any position or we will all find out what real trouble is like!!!! For whatever reason, there is a huge divide between the African America populous and Republicans!! Moreover, the Republican Party refuses to promote individuals like neither Senator Danforth [I am not certain of his first name or state, now] nor Alan Keyes to their own detriment!!!

        Next, consider Obama[don’t]Care!! Do you think that African Americans would have voted for him if they knew, in advance, of the so-called health care bill: No coverage after 75 years of age
        [bye bye mom and grandma]; If your job provides healthcare… you lose it in favor of the government’s plan; Workers losing full time jobs and being placed/forced into part-time job status [work expenses are increased due to the fact that one requires an additional job] [also less personal time due to additional commute; lunch; transportation]; Moreover, ACA is over, I believe, 10,000 pages, now [so what new job killing regulations have been added, which they expect the
        Republicans to just provide Carte Blanche, for]!!

        Likewise, consider the two election opponents! First election, John ‘The Joker’ McCain; the apologist for DeathCare!! He poses as a statesman; but, he really should be “evaluated”!! McCain is, currently, supporting the funding of ACA!!?? Next election, Romney! An individual that practices a religion that
        at one time, at least, taught that blacks were descended from Satan!!! Now that always gets the voters attention! ‘You’re the devil… but, I still expect your vote!!’ If this were
        not bad enough, the Mormons even rubbed salt into the wounds! ‘Well blacks are of the devil; but, they have somehow repented of that “abomination”!!’ How does one repent of who or whom they were born??!! Can a man repent of being born male???!!!

        Finally, consider that so many of our so-called representatives have assisted or stood by, idly, while the government, our
        so-called government purchased railroad cars very similar to those that are used to take “livestock” to the slaughterhouse!
        The difference being, if there is in fact a difference “each” car is
        equipped with a… “Guillotine”!!!??? Do you believe that blacks or well-meaning white liberals would ever support, literally, having something like that, actually, hanging over their heads if
        they and their families do not cooperate to the government’s satisfaction???!!!

        I will close by stating, the news media has been so lacks in
        their reporting that the average American, and of course, this does include blacks… does not even know that the Democrat Party is, actually and systematically, the Communist Party of America!!! Try breaking that piece of information to some or possibly even the vast majority of blacks that you know??!! And do it at a fast-food restaurant because, I can assure you, you and they will be there for a very long debate!!!

        P.S
        I wish everyone to know that when I… first, wrote the above
        comments the computer screen suddenly flickered… and my “original” comment was gone! It took me some time to rewrite my
        comments! I guess we are not supposed to know that we are under Communist occupation!! So, don’t tell anybody… tell every body government surveillance isalive and well!!!!

        • William Rosen

          I understand what you are saying and yes many of those different groups do vote democratic at any cost, but I still stick by my basic conclusion. During the first election, how many times did you hear people that voted for him repeat “he will be our first black president” or “I voted for him because of the historic value of him being our first black president”, this coming from white democrats and some independents, and pushed so well by the lame major news media. They, (CNN, MSNBC and others) did not care so much about his politics as they did about the color of his skin. That is why they did not vet him and that is inherently racist. Dumbocrats know full well they will get the majority of black votes but there is a small portion of African Americans that are starting to go the Republican route. Thank God they are starting to wake up to the democratic party that has worked to keep them under control since the republicans freed them from slavery. All black Americans know who Martin Luther King is but I wonder how many know he was a republican!

          • ChildofELOHIM

            I agree with much of what you have written! However, I believe that the lame street news media did have him vetted… they just didn’t report that information to the general public, what they already knew!!

            Moreover, something is very strange! Consider that ACA [aka, Obama[don't]Care] denies Americans health care
            at 75 years of age?! Would that not be tantamount to issuing every living WWII vet… a death sentence, along with Korean War Veterans!!!

            The very ones that put their lives; their health; their future; their dreams on the line to preserve our nation… and this is how a “grateful nation” repays them????!!!! The
            WORD of GOD teaches that the LORD “hates” ingratitude; but, the so-called news media is still pressuring the GOP to fund the ACA!! And my concerns are that they, the GOP, just might be considering a way to cave and still save the Party??!!

            True Americans have to focus upon how to fortify the GOP, which means encouraging Rino’s like McCain to go on to his next calling… snake oil salesman!! And getting the Communist out of the Democrat Party, completely!!!

            P.S.

            Although the Obama Administration attempted to arm the Muslin Brotherhood in Egypt, the Dems still anticipate getting, at least, 70%++ of the Jewish vote for Clinton
            in 2016!!!???

      • jayleigh

        Yep! It is the “white man’s burden” to try to prove “he” isn’t racist by electing a Black incompetent whose puppet strings can be pulled by the Alinsky-Soros gang who couldn’t stand to have a truly patriotic person of any ethnicity in office, because the agenda is power and control of the masses. Obama fit the bill. So, actually the fact that they decided to smear Cain, and to smear Palin proves that the radical left does NOT support equality for women or “people of color” – they will only support the agenda!

    • jayleigh

      i wonder if the writer is just feeling hopeless – feeling that we may never truly be willing to elect a “person of color” who is conservative because the liberals will never tolerate it? i think he may underestimate how much white folk have changed our opinions now that they’ve been exposed to the heroes like Alan Keyes, Allen West, Herman Cain, Ben Carson, et al. i hope it is just that he has lost faith in the White American Voter and assumes that all of us are liberals and would never vote for a conservative Black candidate, or like in the case of Cain, expend time, energy and $$ to smear the candidate before his/her campaign ever gets off the ground. i think it is clear that the Dems are dedicated to Obama not because they believe he is a intelligent man, but because he is so maleable to the party line. He is lock-step with radical socialism, and that has been the Dem mantra for a very long time.

  • mzungu

    I don’t care if he’s a titanium colored president as long as he agrees that all sides should agree that the US Constitution does not need to be re-written; that the human heart needs to be re-written one person at a time.

    People do good things because of the goodness stored up in them and people, not things, do evil from the evil stored up in them. Changing the heart eliminates need for gun control, eliminates the need to even own a gun for self-defense.

    Look at all this anti-whitism. In the 60’s, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white. /watch?v=lKDeyuM0-Og

    • jayleigh

      This was NEVER an All-White country! What on earth are tyou talking about! First there were the Indians. Then the Europeans, then there were the Spanish, and of course, “we” imported the Africans in slavery; and then we found that the Asians – primarily the Chinese – would work for less than the white folk would, so we let them come and die here building the railroad, in fact we encouraged them to come… this was NEVER a “white country” and i, who am total Brit by extraction, am offended that you are writing Aryan trash on this blog! We have struggled hard and bloody to give all people of any ethnic origin the equal rights that were already guaranteed to them by our U.S. Constitution, and then there are fools like you who spout trash!

      • Roderick Bateman

        Sir John A Macdonald wanted to preserve the “aryan character” of Canada. The FIRST law in Australia was the white australia policy. The american constitution says “For ourselves and our posterity.” How can you argue these are not white countries when the people who MADE these countries defined them as such? You’ll say Europe is for whites and still demand massive non-white immigration and “integration.” This is genocide for white children. Why do you support white genocide? “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white.

        • jayleigh

          Oh wow! Aryan to the bone, aren’t you. Well, have it your way, But this was NEVER a “white” country unless you want to continue to disenfranchise the Natives who were here, and the Mexicans who owned the southwest and much of California before we drove them out. You are funny. i don’t care what Australia did – the indigenous people there were Negroid by race and the Europeans who came to Australia did unspeakable things to the “first citizens” – the Aboriginals. No, allowing other races to abide in the land is not “genocide” for white children! Yikes! You talk like Hitler. hmmmm that Aryan philosophy is creeping back into society, eh. Didn’t learn the lesson of the past. Well, go on, then, speak your foul doctrine, but those of us who celebrate the diversity God created will not fear!

          • Roderick Bateman

            You really are brainwashed aren’t you? Genocide does not have to be violent or involve killing people. It simply has to involve conditions imposed that result in a group of people dieing out. Anti-whites, like you, are forcing ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in million of non-whites, forcing ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or be “nazishowantokill6millionjews,” and forcing ALL and ONLY white children to become minorities and eventually EXTINCT. That is genocide. Why do you support white genocide? “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white.

He didn’t know till he was in high school that his mother couldn’t read! Yet she was dedicated to making certain her sons were educated and able to have a better life than she did. His values came from a Godly mother who dreamed big dreams for her children and insisted that they strive to meet them. No wonder he was the greatest pediatric neuro-surgeon to grace this planet!

          English is the hardest language to learn. The rules are inconsistent, the spelling is difficult, and there are too many words that sound the same, but have different spelling and meanings.

She made sense and if she’s an immigrant who has taken the classes to become a citizen, then she is better educated in our U.S.-C than most voting Americans are because American History and Government are no longer taught in our schools Hooray for the immigrant population who have to study both in order to earn their citizenship!

  • kenvandoren

    I was glad that Tony Dungy and Lovee Smith were both black and the coach of either team was going to be the first black coach to win a super bowl, so we got that whole “first” thing behind us. I NEVER criticized BarryO because he is a dangerous socialistically inclined megalomaniac of minimal talent and intelligence, but I NEVER criticized Obama because he was black. IN fact when others play the race card, I always correct them with, “no, he is HALF black. And Race has nothing to do with it, so why would you bring it up, except that YOU are racist?”

    • kenvandoren

      I remember when Doug Williams became the first black QB to pitch for a super bowl winner, a reporter stupidly asked, “Have you always been a black quarterback?” He allegedly repied, “No, I think I turned black about my sophomore year.” Perfect response. Race does not matter. Performance does.

Now, we must endure a Hillary/michelle O’Bama ticket so we can have the first all female, all minority ticket…even though there are more women than men.

  • Toffee Fee

    Well, I’d take Dr. Carson, Alan Keyes, Allen West or many more of our “black” leaders over any of the RINO “whites” the Republicans have to offer these days. Our black leaders have shown much more courage and independent thinking than 99.9% of their white peers.

    It’s high time race doesn’t play a role — but common sense and honor do!!

    • Mike

      Dr carson is no conservative

      • patgo

        I’ve read two of his books, and I disagree. He’s not an extreme conservative, but he’s conservative enough for me. He’s just very, very good at explaining the issues in a compatible way so that even the most blazing liberal can understand and agree. In any case, he would be a 1000% improvement over the current resident, don’t you think?

        • Mike

          Ok you got me there. Improvement for sure. Lol

      • Toffee Fee

        How then do you define Conservative, Mike? Carson embodies and espouses the values that made us great, and he has thrown some sensible, independent-minded ideas in to the debate (maybe that’s not “conservative” by definition). He’s not a professional politician, he’s a professional healer and problem solver and a deeply moral man. That’s enough conservative for me.

      • jayleigh

        He certainly is! And did you hear his bold speech at the Prayer Breakfast??? the POTUS was not happy, but Carson was bold!

  • Philip Sieve

    The last sentence is lacking, as he didn’t say white “Republican” president, which would be important if you say liberals have stolen Black people’s dignity. That said, I think we would not use the race card if Allen West, Alan Watts or another non-white conservative (emphasis on “conservative”) president were elected.

    The first step on the return to sanity for this country is to conduct a thorough, perhaps even person by person review on a local level of all voting records. NO ONE, absolutely, NO ONE, who cannot bring a valid birth certificate or a Federal picture ID card to the registrars of voters should be permitted to vote. If they are naturalized citizens, they will have their naturalization and citizenship papers. Each person thus identified as a valid voter should then be photographed and their picture become a part of their voter ID card. The statistic that reportedly showed that President Obama won the vote in every single state that did not have a voter ID requirement and lost in every single state that did have voter ID tells me that the dead and the transient have more trouble voting than the ordinary citizen when pictures are required. In addition, any state, district, precinct or polling place that has 95 percent or more turnout should be required to have a match of each voter to the voting rolls and that entity should be required to have a complete scrub of its voting rolls before it can hold another election.

      In other words, you want to see a National Identity Card. Forget it. Everyone should have, already, a driver’s license issued from their state of registry with their photo on the card. That is as far as it should go for id. Add to that the possession of a valid voters registration card and you have a valid voter’s id program. I refuse to participate in ANY Federal program for registration.

      • lbc

        Everyone doesn’t drive a vehicle Oren. How about county photo voter ID’s to prevent voter fraud? Something has to be done before the next presidential election to prevent the democrats from fraudulently getting their puppet elected again.

        • binky354

          People need photo i.d.s for many reasons. If you don’t have a driver’s license, you get a photo id from some office in your city or county government. They’re available my my county from the Circuit Clerk’s office.

      • iamsurrounded

        But what happens then with all the illegals who have driver’s licenses?

        • jayleigh

          Well, they need to have a notation on them that it is an alien registration number that allows them to operate a motor vehicle and NOT proof of citizenship.

      • jayleigh

        No, we don’t need a national identity card. A driver’s license will do, and in my state (and i assume that other states, as well) non-drivers can get a photo I.D. by showing their birth certificate and a utility bill with name and physical address on it, or a rent receipt, something that shows they actually reside in that town, county and state. They are cheap and if someone is so poverty-stricken that they can’t afford it, there are community action agencies that will probably pay for it (not community organizers – agencies that help poor with food pantries and occasionally have funds for prescriptions, assistance with utilities, or paying little bills like this). So, it’s a strawman put up to make us who are pushing for voter positive identification mandatory, feel guilty for demanding honesty at the polls! i agree that a national registration card is a socialist step to keep track of us and impose rules and regulations. i don’t think there are any states left that just give a paper driver’s license without a photo, is there? But, yes, i think a national ID is a BAD idea! But then, we actually have that with our Social Security Numbers, don’t we? The Feds can find us with that number. When it was started, the fears of it being used by other agencies was poohpooed, and it even says right on it (or did) that it was not to be used for identification. But is there any place that doesn’t require it? It’s on most driver’s licenses, my doctor wants it, the schools all require it… it IS a national ID – what do we need to do to get that stopped?

    • DixieAngel_76

      I’ll go one better, I think that a mandatory and thorough scrutiny and purging of all voter rolls should be done every election cycle. Elections are far too important to allow even the opportunity for cheating and fraud, and far too many don’t realize that unless and until you weed out the corruption, our very sovereignty as a nation is at stake. ONLY true Americans, natural born or naturalized should be allowed to vote. Anything else dilutes the will of the people, and keeps us from being of the people, by the people and for the people.

    • jayleigh

      And, goons from ACORN (or whatever its new name is) stood guard at some polling places that were considered crucial, to intimidate mostly white voters or those who were wearing GOP stickers. Many reported being afraid to go on in and vote for fear they’d be followed and assaulted or their homes and autos vandalized. Yet, no one called a time-out to remove the goons. Even when voting booths were shown to vote for Obama no matter which handle was pulled, the votes were allowed to stand. This was the most corrupt national vote in history, and yet, he was still confirmed as the winner. And a lot of us wonder if he REALLY did earn all the electoral votes he was given. i think it’s time to do away with the electoral college and go strictly with the vote tally. Analysts have tried to explain the continuing rationale for the EC, but, although gerrymandering of voting districts is supposed to be outlawed, it still goes on! If the elections were strictly on the popular vote, gerrymandering could have NO effect. And, the polls should be guarded by police, if necessary to make sure goons don’t try to discourage voters. Anyone not mentally competent to vote should not be bused to the polls and told where to put their mark by the community organizers who have taken elderly with diagnoses of dementia and mentally handicapped folk with IQs that register below that of a five year old children to the polls and showed them where to mark the ballot. i am not against elderly residents of care centers being taken to the polls to vote as long as they are mentally competent to make the choice of candidate! But when they no longer know their own family, they cannot then distinguish between the platforms of one candidate over another! And, we should return to paper only ballots and get rid of machines that can be rigged. Or, a neutral agency should check them at intervals to make sure they are responding as the voter votes. Voter photo IDs are a must, and the left saying that would disenfranchise “poor” people is a crock! Everyone has a photo ID! Or can get one cheaply as long as they have a birth certificate and some utility bill to prove their identity!

  • Glenn H

    The United States of America is in deep trouble because people were too eager to have our first Black President! It was an ill conceived and very dangerous action fueled by greed and political correctness for which we all are paying a Hugh price.
    There were much better choices for President in 2008 and Herman Cain would have served the same purpose as Barack Obama, being the first black to hold the office.
    Herman was viciously attacked by the democratic party and smeared with allegations as to his sexual behavior concerning women who had previously worked for him. It didn’t matter that Herman was a very successful business man and understood economics,(something that is totally absent in the oval office today)!
    We chose a community organizer instead because he was handsome and could read well from a teleprompter! It doesn’t help that he is a socialist and still not vetted as to his qualifications for the job he holds!
    But that doesn’t matter as he proved this past weekend that he can really organize as evidenced by the large number of illegal immigrants he allowed in our National Mall to protest against us (while our veterans watched from across the mall where they were locked out of the very memorial that was built to honor them)!
    Oh and remember that the same people that trashed Herman Cain were the ones that championed Bill Clinton and his many BLOW-JOBS that he received in the White House. There isn’t enough Clorox in America to remove the shame and tarnish from the White House the last two democratic Presidents have left behind!

  • Sorcha

    You are a breath of fresh air, Kevin Jackson! 95% unemployment for high school dropout black males??? I don’t think anyone thought it was that high! Notice it got very high with the extreme immigration pouring into America these last decades. And these liberals want to add 11-20 million illegal aliens to the work force with work permits, and invite all their family members to come over – sealing our unemployed into permanent generational poverty and despair. How can these people do that to their own countrymen? They should be spending their time helping our own lost generations; actively trying to reverse decades of bad policy, culture and behavior. It is sick that they hurt their own. Power and money-the root of all evil.

    Among black, male, high school dropouts, PBS’ Paul Salmon reports, the unemployment rate is a staggering 95 percent.

      It’s also pretty high among older workers of both genders and all races who have been forced out of their jobs by companies who no longer want them. It’s cheaper to replace them with young, naive people who, while they may know next to nothing about the real world, will also work for next to nothing. Greed is a very powerful motivator.

  • iamsurrounded

    Wow! I said I would not vote for a black man, ever, if this divisive craziness that results. You, Mr. Jackson, have hit on the true reason people are feeling that way. Great piece, and I love that you are throwing all the facts in there – something liberals seem to always leave out or distort. One question – what did Juan Williams mean when he said that mentioning the Constitution is racist? I can’t figure that one out.

    • patgo

      The fact we have such a lousy resident is generating feelings like yours, as I knew it would. It has set back the idea that a black can be conservative and worthy, or a credit to people with darker skin by an incalculable amount. But racism is racism. Start by thinking about what you said. You ASSUME that all black candidates would be divisive. Tell that to Ben Carson, JC Watts, Alan Keyes, and Allen West.

      • DixieAngel_76

        I don’t think that’s what he meant. I believe that he meant the general populace would continue the in-fighting that is destroying this nation, egged on by the race baiters, naturally.

      • jayleigh

        i would have voted for any one of those you listed! They are articulate, intelligent, have a full grasp of the Constitution, and are true patriots! Add Herman Cain to the list, as well!

        • patgo

          The reason why I did not include Herman Cain was his 9-9-9 plan. I was fine with him until he announced that. It would raise taxes on everyone, but hit the poor the hardest, and it would greatly increase the complexity of the tax system. It would not get rid of the income tax, and we need to do that. It obviously had nothing to do with the color of his skin. I don’t know who came up with that harebrained scheme. He really ought to know better. He was a successful businessman.

          • carolina mama

            The 9-9-9 plan was supposed be a transitional move towards flat tax rather than the regressive tax policy we currently have in place. And under 9-0-9, the largest sector of people who would have benefited would have been those living in poverty-stricken inner-city areas. 9-0-9 was based on policy developed by Jack Kemp known as “enterprise zones”. Kemp could foresee how inner cities areas were losing jobs (for a lot of reasons) and developed an economic plan that might have turned things around. Higher risks than normally would be considered, but if it paid off, it would pay off big time and allow a lot of people living in poverty to become self-reliant citizens.

            As a businessman, Cain knew that something along the lines of 9-0-9 plan might encourage potential investors to be willing to take the risk in setting up businesses in inner-city areas.

  • giant33

    Great piece Mr Jackson. The only thing missing was the bell curve for the liberal media who push this racist BS.

  • John

    Great piece, but I do believe that we could elect a Conservative or Republican candidate that happened to be Black. Liberals of all colors would declare him/her to not “really” be black anyway.

  • jasondeegan

    Well stated. As I’m sure it was mostly tongue in cheek, I just want a conservative president that doesn’t race-bait.

    • patgo

      Wish I could agree. It didn’t READ like it was tongue-in-cheek. I agree with you about what kind of president we need, though.

      • jasondeegan

        I suppose my comment could have been misconstrued – the tongue-in-cheek part was specifically addressing that he had to be white. The rest is right on.

        • DixieAngel_76

          I don’t even think that part was. It’s sad, but so many people can’t accept that to be ‘equal’ means to be equally accountable for your mistakes as well.

  • patgo

    “Admit it. You want a white Republican president again.”
    Speak for yourself. I DO NOT CONSIDER RACE TO BE AN ISSUE IN A PRESIDENTIAL RACE, and the very thought that I might is TOTALLY DISGUSTING.

    I supported Alan Keyes in one primary. I was sorely tempted to support Herman Cain until he came out with his 9-9-9 plan, which would be a regressive tax increase and unnecessarily complex. I would support Ben Carson, Alan West, JC Watts, or any of the black conservative thinkers. WE NEED A CONSERVATIVE BLACK PRESIDENT to prove that not all blacks are corrupt and tyrannical. I am white, and I have two part-black adopted sons. One of them needs to see what a REAL black president would be like. I would also support Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal if the “natural born” requirement were not an issue in the latter case. Rubio is good, but his stand on immigration is a little worrisome, though I’d need to know more, because there are some people who should be legitimate immigrants, and everyone else is ignoring them.

    Many white candidates have been very disappointing. The only white candidate I could support was Gingrich. Romney was a terrible choice. It cost us dearly.

    The determination of who should be president should not revolve around what kinds of INVALID criticisms people might make.

    I can’t BELIEVE you wrote this drivel!

    • binky354

      Kevin was trying to make a point about how you can’t disagree with this President’s policies. I had issues with Carter, and made them known. I had issues with both George Bushes, made them known, and even blasted the White House with letters objecting to some of their actions. Who dares disagree with this President? You’d be placed on a list to be retaliated against.

      Disagree and all you get back, is “Racist!”.

      • David Riley

        you can disagree all you want. i disagree with him on some things, and i voted for him TWICE.

        but when things this are part of a campaign of racial hatred against the man, THAT’S when you get called “racist”. so, please tell me, which “policy” is this attacking:

        • DixieAngel_76

          The fact that some resorted to deplorable behavior does not excuse this miserable excuse of a President. All you have to do is witness his latest, petulant behavior like barricading old soldiers who paid for our freedom with their blood from seeing their memorial, while opening the mall to illegal protesters screaming for their supposed rights (which they have not sacrificed anything for) and tossing old people out of their privately owned homes because they ‘sit on federal land’. He uses his twisted little puppet Dirty Harry Reid, who has been well bought off, to do his dirty work, but believe me, they both share the same hatred of the ‘common folk’ like us.
          Race is not an issue, I would support any candidate who has a serious plan for getting us back on track, and getting the government off of our backs and out of our pockets.

        • jayleigh

          You voted for him TWICE? You support his current actions in blocking memorials, etc? You think spending money to shut down American historic sites, evict people from their home, barricade walk-thru memorials, try to close Mt. Vernon – which is privately owned – you think his rhetoric that blasts anyone who doesn’t walk lock-step with him – you think his excessive use of the EO is OK? You think that Obamacare, which started in the Senate instead of in the House (where it should have been initiated) is ok? It’s unconstitutional, btw; and you support the IRS targeting of conservative organizations, and his rhetoric about “stopping the conservative organizations” is ok? eh? Wow! i think you’re posting in the wrong forum! And, btw, what’s the purpose of that disgusting poster? eh?

      • jayleigh

        Well, he isn’t “Black” as in American Black, which does make a difference. HIs father(?) was Kenyan, so that makes him African. He’s trying to trade on the American Black-descended-from-slaves-black, which has offended my Black friends – who did NOT vote for him! Yeah, most American Blacks bought into the “Black” POTUS idea, but a lot of them did not and still do not and are offended that he uses a term that is indigenous to the American descendants of slaves. Their experiences are not his – he was never forbidden to drink from a “white” fountain; he never had to use a “Black” restroom; he never rode in the back of the bus – and when he used that analogy, saying he was going to put the white folk in the “back of the bus,” my Black friends were NOT amused or celebrating. They were ashamed of him. Muslims as a generality are middle-eastern Arab, but there are Black Muslim’s as well – remember? So while not all Arabs/Middle Eastern people are Muslims, most are. Islam is the religion of the Muslims.

  • jennyp63

    I have a problem with folks nowadays taking everything so literally. I loved this article because I open-mindedly accepted what was being said. It wasn’t racial, which is perhaps why some didn’t understand it. What it IS about is that we have a president who has none of the instincts needed to rule this nation. I own two Herman Cain for President t-shirts, and still proudly wear them. I would have voted for him in a heartbeat. Why such an uproar about whether he did or didn’t cheat on his wife? That is totally between them as a married couple. On the other hand, the personal life of “our leader” was never brought to the fore. Neither is as important as the fact that our sovereign country is being brought down to a shameful getto level. THAT is the problem we should be talking about; let the race-baiters talk and just ignore them. Stick to the the problems at hand. (And we have many!)

    • Gina101

      Ironically, the critics of Kevin’s article couldn’t get past the irony of their race obsession.

    • DixieAngel_76

      I loved your point about the uproar over his supposed affairs, I didn’t get it either. In fact the same media who screamed about Bill Clinton’s ‘right to his privacy’ as he had affairs on the job, was perfectly willing to crucify Herman Cain for something that was supposedly done long before he even thought about running for President. I think what really scared them all was that he was the only one who was willing to talk about real, serious tax reform for all of us. I would have voted for him as well.

      • jayleigh

        “supposedly” is the key word, too, isn’t it? i don’t think we’ll ever know the truth about that, and i’m not sure we’re entitled to it. What games this POTUS played in Chicago in the bath houses is far more egregious anyway, but he gets a pass? what kind of justice is that????

    • JessFlagg

      Oh honey, saying you would have voted for Herman Cain for President? One need read no further.

      Oh and btw, if he did cheat on his wife (who really cares)…. then why did the Republicans (with cheaters like Newt et al) go after Bill Clinton in such a vicious manner? It’s ok if you are Republican? IOKIYAR

      Yes, stick to the problems at hand. The problem is not President Obama, it is the TPGOP who vowed from day one they would say “NO” to anything this President tried to do to help the American people.

      You may not know this and you certainly won’t like it but fact is the U.S. is being laughed at in the rest of the world due to your Republican obstruction with shutting down the govern’ and refusing to raise the debt ceiling without demanding a ransom. Other countries look at it as totally crazy. Know why?
      FACT:
      Only Denmark has a system similar to the United States where the legislature has to approve increases to the debt separately from approving the budget. The Danish set the ceiling high enough so that it never slows the process of borrowing money and they can avoid political conflicts like the one currently gripping the U.S.

      • LastNameFirst

        Obviously you don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s where and the time period that Clinton did it.
        The WH and Congress got everything they wanted when they controlled all 3 spots. There was no debating and they went crazy spending the taxpayers money. Now that they have overspent our tax dollars, they want to raise the ceiling. That is being irresponsible with our money. The government doesn’t have any money; it belongs to the taxpayers. I know, let’s just set the debt ceiling at a zillion dollars. Then it won’t be a problem for us anymore; it will be the problem of our great, great, great grandchildren.
        And your wrong about the reason behind the world laughing at us; it’s because the illegal in the WH got owned by the Russian prez. First time in American history that America look like the little guy.
        The only way you’ll ever get your facts straight is by doing your own research and stop believing all the lies told to you by the liberally owned and biased media.

    The color of a President’s skin is a non issue, but unfortunately we have had Republican Presidents and Democrat Presidents for the past 240 or so years and both Parties have had their hands involved in totally Ruining and Screwing this nation up Financially, Economically, in Foreign Policy, and in Domestic Policy issues.

    Both Parties are responsible for keeping our nation involved in wars far away from the United States where the United States or any of our territories were attacked or were in any harms way, yet our Government still sent our good men and women in the military into harms way, even though it didn’t involve the United States at all.

    I think it is time we had a Libertarian President that employs Non-Interventionists Foreign Policies which basically allows the United States to mind our own damn business and allows Foreign Nations to settle their own problems all on their own, without any of our assistance.

    That is what our nation truly needs, not another Republican President or another Democrat President that will continue the process of keeping America involved in every little war that happens in the world. We need a President that will look out for the best interests of the American people 1st and foremost, we need a president that isn’t afraid to tell a group of people from a Foreign Nation Not just No, but Hell No, you can’t come to our nation without being able to totally support yourselves, and no you can’t receive Free Government Subsidies or Grants paid for by our Taxpayers.

    We need a Libertarian President willing to stand up to anybody who opposes our United States Constitution including Liberals, Progressives, Communists, and Muslims. That’s what we need.

      You’re all running around telling women what they can and can’t do with their own bodies and forcing your religion on everyone and telling everyone how to live their lives all, in the name of your “freedom”. Well that ain’t the way it works. You aren’t the one who decides for me what freedom I get, I’m perfectly happy making my own decisions without your big government loving statist interference.

        Just a note here, a woman is totally free to do with her body as she pleases, but the baby inside of her is it’s OWN body and has the separate and distinct DNA to prove it, but hey, never let logic disturb your twisted ideology.

          Really? A fertilized egg is the direct equivalent of a delivered infant baby? How about individual sperm and eggs? Yes? No?

          Oh, yeah, YOU get to decide that for the rest of us, don’t you?

          You have no logic other than what you want to be true based simply on your emotions and justified by your chosen religion – in other words, you want YOUR feeling about the subject to decide the issue when even a cursory examination of the facts supports multiple reasonable views on when life begins and what it means.

          It’s your ideology that is “twisted” because you think you’re the center of the universe (you aren’t) and you don’t grant to others the rights you demand for yourself.

      • LastNameFirst

        Everything you just typed here shows your ignorance. You use the racist card as if it means something. You libs have used it falsely so much that a sheet of toilet paper holds more water than that word.
        Freedom? You don’t have a clue as to the true meaning of freedom. It carries a true meaning that only those who have sacrificed it serving our country can really understand. We have guaranteed your GOD given freedoms for you that you really have no clue as to how precious they are. Go to some foreign third world country and see how quickly you lose those freedoms because those third world countries don’t believe in your GOD given rights.
        We are not forcing our religion on you. You have the choice to choose your own religion or not, but don’t try to take ours away because you don’t like ours. 1st Amendment; read it correctly. Freedom OF religion; not ‘from’, as you atheists seem to think.
        You are the ones trying to force your wicked ways upon us. You want to take away our rights and freedoms. You choose to ignore the Constitution, which is the law of the land, because you idiotic ideas don’t carry enough support to change the Constitution.
        You think you can talk your way out of everything, but you fail to realize that there are terrorist out there that will chop your head off while you are trying to reason with them, because you don’t have a clue.
        Big government? I can’t believe that you would even try to pass that lie through. The only party that wants big government it the democratic party. The republican party wants small government, the libertarian party wants a skeleton government. The democratic party wants the people to be dependent upon the government. You can claim all you want that your just helping out the low class, but in reality you are keeping the low class enslaved. It’s one thing to help them out; it’s another to keep them down and dependent. And at what cost are the dems doing this? At the cost of the working tax paying class. Look at the out of control that the dems have done in the short time period that they controlled both the House, Senate, and WH. Let me ask you this; who’s money are you going to use to take care of everyone when the working class has been tax to death and the jobs have all been outsourced overseas because you taxed corporations so badly that it could only survive by outsourcing; and the only jobs left in America are being held by the illegals that you want to give amnesty to because these businesses are to small to outsource so they use cheap labor to try to get ahead?
        BTW, the amnesty won’t improve anything because the border is not secured. In 10 years we’ll be right back to where we are now; 15 million illegals in the USA. What will you do then?
        But keep drinking the Kool-Aid, thinking your free, all the while the illegal in the WH continues to take away your freedoms until you realize to late. When you have NOTHING to protect yourself and defend yourself, you might then finally realize what your foolish way of thinking got you into.

        • Jimcima

          Whenever I read emotional screeds like you have written I am always struck by depth of the anti-intellectual that drives your movement.

          It is pointless to try to rebut your words because you choose emotions over logic, but just to note that modern conservative movement is self-admittedly built on class warfare and racism (see the Southern Strategy) – again, this was ADMITTED, this isn’t even a question. Racism drives your movement by your leader’s own admission. Argue with them if you disagree, not me because I am just repeating what they say.

          As for religion you confuse Christianity with all religions. The Constitution guarantees my right to believe or not believe and you have nothing to say about it. Period. You can’t force me to accept your religion.

            Ah, but you are the one using emotions as shown in your post; not logic. I use common sense; and not the twisted kind that your prez claims but knows nothing about. I don’t have any racism in me as you claim, which is something all you libs love to scream anytime you have lost a discussion. And one last thing; go back and read the Constitution again; word for word. Don’t add or take away the words that are written; as you just did in your last paragraph. I love it when you libs try to add or remove words that are written in the Constitution; trying to justify your own twisted deviated thoughts.

            I’ve read it racist, it’s pretty clear:

            But please argue that it is the color of the President’s skin that invalidates the clear language of the Constitution.

            You hate the President because of the color of his skin and nothing else – his is is to right of Ronald Reagan and you still hate his guts. The only answer to to why is racism.

            You are incapable of rational thought or any sort of reason because you are poisoned with bigotry and hatred – your own words prove it.

            How tiny and immature you are. How evil and stupid. What a sad waste.

      Libertarian isolationism might have been fine in the 1800s but we traded that all away when we decided to uncork the nuclear genie from the bottle, and to become totally dependant on fossil fuels. Unless we are willing and courageous enough to use the vast oil resources under our own land we will never wean ourselves from the middle eastern oil teat, and even if we did, that won’t undo the nuclear age, which we ourselves ushered in. There is no way now that we can go back to ignoring the world’s problems. No nation is an island.

    • jayleigh

      i agree with most of what you wrote, but we cannot become isolationist in this day and age. If we do not “fight the wars” on foreign soil, they will be fought on our own soil. They already are. The Twin Towers and all that has followed proves that. Complacency the Muslim agenda, allowing sharia law to prevail when it flies in the face of the United States Constitution is an abomination. This nation was founded by immigrants – and true, in the early years and up until the 1960s, immigrants came with nothing, but worked hard to pay their own way, learn English and educate their children. So, it isn’t how much anyone has monetarily when they immigrate to the USA, it is whether they have the skills and will to work and support themselves. But, America has also made exception for “exploited” people and those who were fleeing persecution. i don’t think most Americans want to close our gates to those who seek asylum here. So, yeah, you’ve made some good points, but i have to strongly disagree with much of what you suggest. No, not suggest, demand! Oh, and Israel MUST be protected! That is our only friend in the middle-east and while Ron Paul said, “Israel can take of herself,” he was only partially right. Yes, the Six-Day-War showed that God supernaturally intervened to give victory, but the weapons now available to destroy that tiny nation are much more sophisticated. And, there is the Biblical injunction for blessing on the people who bless/support Israel and a penalty to those who do her harm. It is in our best interest strategically, aside from the Biblical injunction, to support Israel!

  • Mitchell S. Gilbert

    So the answer to all our problems is a white President? Do you wake up every day Jackson and say to yourself: How can I behave and sound like the worst Uncle Tom in American History? Your pathetic and embarrassment.

    • David Riley

      “uncle tom” would NOT beat the other slaves, and incurred the wrath and hatred of legree for NOT doing so…….no “uncle tom” wrote this.

  • BRobCleveland

    If America wanted a ” White Republican President” they could have elected one. But they did not want one, so it is pretty ballsy to insist that we “need” that which we do not want.

    The Dems have out polled the GOPers in five of the last six presidential elections. One of these days you cons might figure out why, but it will be too late.

    Here’s a hint — this article, by a Black author, expressing an existentially racist sentiment . . . it ain’t gonna help your demographic issues. When Avik Roy, Romney’s Indian American health care expert, cannot convince his own mother that the Republicans actually want Indians and immigrants in their party, you know you are in trouble. Against that backdrop, is it any wonder that Obama got 71% of the Latino vote and 73% of the Asian America vote?

    Do you guys even know WHY minorities run from you like you have the plague? No, I don’t think you do. So here’s another hint — Stop listening to Black Republicans when they give their insulting and nonsensical “explanations” for why you all cannot get minority votes. Crap like this article, by a self hating Black fool, will certainly not help you at all if you wish to become a more diverse party . . . .

    • Gina101

      I noticed you didn’t refute the statistics in his article, but rather, like a typical liberal, you predictably attacked the author. Yawn.

      • Jimcima

        There wasn’t a single insult in his comment, not one, so you lie about it, like a typical conservative. You’re all the same, dishonest and
        without a speck of honor, not the tiniest speck.

        It is unsurprising that conservatives are the most hated political group in America.

        • jayleigh

          Not by other conservatives – only by liberals who throw tantrums and close down public memorials, national parks, and refuse to pay the bills for military deaths that are owed to the survivors. Yep, that’s some tantrum your POTUS threw – hurt a lot of old geezers who fought wars to secure our freedom, and it hurt families who weren’t able to get to the base where their fallen soldier’s casket was coming in – oh yeah, that’s a true “liberal” philosophy – “if you oppose my plans, I’ll HURT you” Really mature behavior from the POTUS! And then there’s his tantrum over Syria and his “red line” – and ol’ Putin made a mockery of him. Oh, he’s a real hero! We conservatives ARE hated by you libs because we don’t believe that socialism ever leads to fiscal health for any nation. Every country that has gone that route is now bankrupt! Check it out, lib, check it out! Oh, and while you’re at it, why not read the United States Constitution – take special note of the enumerated powers and the limits to the powers of each branch. The POTUS is NOT the majority owner of the power – it’s a three-legged stool – Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. The POTUS doesn’t get to rule by Executive Order – look it up. Oh, andn study the Preamble to the Constitution carefully – also, look carefully at the rights OWNED (not granted) to the PEOPLE! You might actually learn something that will stupefy you since you have swallowed the lie of socialism for so long.

          • Jimcima

            Well that is exactly the opposite of observed reality.

            You shut down the government because you wanted a backdoor way to stop a law that was legally passed and which you don’t like. The consequences of that action are what caused all of those bad thing to happen, not anything Obama did or didn’t do. Don’t believe me? Pass a clean bill….oh yeah, your speaker won’t even allow a vote on the subject.

            The breathtaking dishonesty of your post is a good example of why conservatism is polling at record lows – you just make stuff up without any regard for the truth. People who aren’t as ideologically bound and as you see through your lies immediately of course.

            I encourage you to continue lying to yourselves and everyone else because it just proves you are dishonest and without integrity and personal honor.

        • delahaya

          Jim,
          You’ll miss us when we’re gone and there’s no one to pay for everything and you’re overrun with foul-mouthed violent thugs in the street. Then your grandchildren can curse your name and what you left them.

          • Jimcima

            I won’t miss your racism.

            I work for a living pal, and I’ll match my W2 to yours any day of the week. I’m a liberal and I pay taxes, a lot of taxes, and the only reason I do is because you lot want to let the richest of the rich get away without paying nothing.

            Its not a race issue, it’s a class issue and you are too bone stupid to understand that you are being played for the rube that you are.

            Open your eyes, you are being played.

      • BRobCleveland

        No, I refuted the central asinine premise of the article, that “American needs a White Republican President.” The stats were a distractive throw in.

        • DixieAngel_76

          Yet those ‘stats’ just happen to dovetail very nicely with what the author is trying to explain to leftist ideologues.

        • delahaya

          Really Bob? Then dispute this. Black unemployment is higher under Obama than under Bush. Black poverty is higher under Obama than under Bush. Black food stamp dependence is higher under Obama than under Bush.
          Those are facts you can easily look up.

    • Douglas W. Rodrigues

      You forgot to mention all of the voter fraud going on instigated by the DNC? The DNC are also masters of propaganda manipulating low intellect voters into believing just about anything that is negative to Republicans. The Republicans should learn from the DNC: i.e. lie; vilify by lying; voter cheating; buying votes; race baiting; pitting the wealthy against the poor….you get the idea. What’s good for one party should be good for the other, except that the DNC would scream their heads off if the RNC did what the DNC always has done.

      • infidel1000

        Hmmm…I remember that all the voter fraud schemes, not to mention organized voter suppression efforts, were instigated by republicans.

        • Michael Lawrence

          You forgot all of those that occurred in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida…..how convenient that you leave those out. Suppose that Obama supporter voter fraud had been prevented in those states…. Romney would be President today…..You only remember the, so called by liberals, republican fraud and suppression….can you give us specific proof of this? Maybe a link to a conviction or court case?

          • ac30fan

            Pretty sure infidel1k hasn’t forgotten about Florida. Just a guess…

          • Michael Lawrence

            I’m sure he has, just as you have also forgotten it. The Broward county election commissioner was not even going to count absentee ballots and had misplaced several boxes of ballots. Curiously, this woman is an Obama supporter. It took a great effort to even get Broward county to count these ballots. Obama won Florida by .9%… how many other counties had Obama supporter election commissioners that did not count votes until caught not counting them? Hmm….I bet you were referring to purging dead people from the voter rolls.

          • ac30fan

            Hey Mr Lawrence (aka Mr Irony / Mr Satire): That highly evolved sense of humor you’re always bragging about seems to have failed you. I was satirically referring to Florida in the 2000 elections where voter fraud cost Al Gore the office he won. What’s the matter? Aren’t you laughing? Don’t you get it? Maybe you need me to draw you a diagram etc etc.

          • LastNameFirst

            You might want to do your research instead listening to the liberal media before you start giving out false information like the liberal media does.

          • ac30fan

            jeez. wonderfully specific suggestion. I’ll get right on that

          • infidel1000

            Yep, I remember a gang of out of state republican thugs flown down there that intimidated the Broward County election board into NOT counting the votes. Read all about that incident in “The Betrayal of America” by Vincent Bugliosi (not known as a liberal).

          • delahaya

            Except that’s a lie. Its so amusing how angry liberals get if Republicans get activist at all. Liberals employ riots, street thugs, marches, rallies, and so on ALL THE TIME. But have some Republicans come in and politely try to excercise their citizen rights and oversee an election. If the stakes weren’t so high, your abject hypocrisy would be amusing.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Sure thing…diagrams would be helpful…maybe you can explain with your diagram that even after the recount Bush was still found to be the winner. You know the full recount after the election was certified, the one the NY Times conducted. I’d like to see that diagram, so please do post it.

          • infidel1000

            Wrong. Nobody ever proved any significant vote fraud anywhere, anytime. Voter suppression laws affect millions of voters, mostly democrat. Obama wins, and suddenly all these voter suppression roaches crawl out of the woodwork. See a pattern here?

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Again…where is the voter suppression taking place that affect millions of voters?

          • infidel1000

            You’re so f@%$*&g smart, figure it out yourself, Einstein.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            I’ve already got it figured out: There is no voter suppression.. What there is, is voter cheating encouraged by the DNC. All those millions of illegal alien Mexicans are nothing more than potential DNC voters…legal or otherwise. I know it, and you know it, and that’s the reason why Nancy Pelosi canceled out the building of the border fence.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Ahh, you won’t be able to see those voter cheating reports and prosecutions unless you remove the blidnfold from your eyes.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Really? Maybe you can explain how Obama received 108% of the registered vote in some areas of Ohio. Or maybe you could explain how in Philadelphia Obama received 100% of the vote…statistically that is a virtual impossibility. Even the most rampant liberal precincts in NYC could not manage 100% of the vote going for Obama. How do you explain that?

            Voter fraud is very hard to catch. It has to be caught at the point of the fraudulent vote being placed…. or the stupid Democrat comes out and brags about it….you know, like the poll worker in Ohio that came out in an interview and was proud to tell everyone that she voted for herself, and her daughter, and her sick tenant, and her brother… all with absentee ballots…and then had the gall to show up and vote in person. Voter suppression…. you must mean the voter roll purge of dead people in Florida. I know dead people voting in Chicago is the latest and greatest thing since the 1930s, but now it seems that the Democrats like the way it works there so well that they took it to a national level. Or were you referring to the voter ID laws that are popping up in response the the voter fraud you claim does not exist? Your argument is that it is racist to require an ID to vote because it is SOOOOO difficult to get an ID. Claiming that minorities can’t get an ID because it’s difficult or hard to get to the issuing office, or that they have to wait in line to get an ID….lame excuses… and racist to boot. How many minorities already have a drivers license? The DNC always seem to get people out to the polls to vote, if they are that concerned, they should get people out to get an ID. Oh wait….that would stop dead people, felons, dead people’s pets, cartoon characters, people’s pets, and multiple votes from any one individual….They don’t want that because they could not win national elections without all that fraudulent help. Yep, I see a pattern….Democrats use fraud to elect a president, then claim voter suppression or racism when states pass laws to protect the sanctity of their elections. Yep, that pattern is being repeated all across the nation. The supreme court has ruled that voter ID is not an undue burden, so get over it. You have to have ID to cash a check, get on a plane, use a credit card, claim governmental benefits or entitlements…so why is it a problem to require ID to vote? That is the one question liberals never seem to come up with a legitimate answer.

          • infidel1000

            Well, YOU vote, so you are partially correct in that BRAIN dead people are voting. Since you don’t appear to be smart enough to do a thorough google search, here’s a link, although I’m pretty sure that, even if it penetrates your skull, there’s nothing inside to absorb it.

            I don’t have an image to pump up. You’re doing that for me just by making your stupid comments. I’m just one guy who has an intense curiosity about the truth of anything. What I’ve learned over the years is the Democrat Party has been taken over by Communists. It all began during the early 1960’s Another thing I’ve observed is that people, in general, can be manipulated by the masters of manipulation…the DNC Leadership who also have a Marxist agenda. Manipulation and deceit are hallmarks of the Communist Party everywhere. They lie their way into power, and once power is established they become dangerous tyrants. It’s a flaw of the human psyche: People want to follow a “leader” or with someone with great charisma. Obama has that charisma, but a leader he isn’t. Obama is nothing more than rabble rouser for the Communist cause. His cause is Socialism. Nikita Khrushchev once said, “We (the Russians) won’t have to go to war with you. We will feed you small bits of socialism until one day you’ll wake up under Communism.” He also said, “Socialism is the first step to Communism.“ The majority of the Obama followers don’t know history, or don’t care to know history. It will repeat itself. Interesting that Vladimir Putin said that Barack Obama is a Communist. Putin should know. Putin also said that Obama hasn’t learned the pitfalls of Communism. I’ll add that neither have the Obama followers learned anything from history because they don’t read it.

          • LastNameFirst

            So true!!!

          • infidel1000

            So do your own research. Does your mommy still wipe your nose, too?

          • LastNameFirst

            I do my own research from numerous sites, because almost all are biased in one way or another.
            And there is no reason to start with the childish remarks, especially when I just scattered my mothers remains 3 months ago. Not that you would or have any reason to believe me. I just wanted to let you know that those kind of remarks are out of line.

          • infidel1000

            Oh, you have delicate feelings? I’m soooo sorry. What kind of idiot would throw out such a remark, simply to defend his delicate ego? If it’s true, then you defile your mother, not me. If it’s not, then you’re a petty liar who will say anything to mollify his spoiled sensibilities. Which is it?

          • LastNameFirst

            I don’t defile my mother, and I can’t stand a liar, such you and your libs. I have honor and integrity, something that you libs wouldn’t understand even if you looked the words up in a dictionary. And I also have a death certificate in my possession to verify my mothers death. It doesn’t mean I am soft or weak, and it definitely doesn’t mean I defiled my mother. You are the one that started the mother slurs. But I won’t stoop down to your level to insult your mother as you have done mine. And my feelings aren’t hurt either. I was simply giving you the opportunity to be a civilized human being on here, but I can see that you libs would prefer in slanderous insults and name calling instead of having an intellectually civilized debate. I guess that is above your level.
            Not a problem. I also know how to ignore any further idiotic remarks from a low level uninformed individual such as yourself. No need to reply; it won’t get any further response from me.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            I have a cousin who thinks she is smarter than the rest of us since she went to college and got indoctrinated by the leftist communistic regime. The thing is, quite a few of us in the family attended college, but we didn’t get fooled into the brain-washing BS that she did. Anyway, to this day she thinks Bush went into Iraq for the oil. I laugh at her every time and ask her if that’s the case and since we had the country under our control, why don’t we have the oil under our control and in our possession thereby reducing the price of oil. She gets mad and walks away. She is the only one in the family with leftist ideology.

          • Michael Lawrence

            You’re not providing research for my claims, but you need to provide research for YOUR claims.. Can you come up with any less biased source than thinkprogress.org….even they say that in Florida, the Democrats picked up 7 seats in the Florida legislature and still managed a win for Obama in 2012. How were they suppressed? The shorter early voting days did not seen to make much difference, purging the dead from the voter rolls didn’t seem to make much difference. Got anything else? Your article mentions that Charlie Crist expanded early voting hours….Rick Scott returned them to what they were previously…how is that voter suppression? Purging the dead from voter rolls, how is that voter suppression? The only people that suppresses from voting are the dead. So you want dead people voting?
            By the way, your source makes bold claims, but absolutely no charges filed, no court cases, and no convictions…..You need better research other than an article that merely claims voters were suppressed….despite Democrats making gains in the state. Oh yea, they were just SOOOOO suppressed that Romney lost.

          • infidel1000

            Dude, if I found holy scripture to support any of my points you’d become an atheist to deny them. I’m not wasting any more of my valuable time trying to educate you. You refuse to do any objective research so you will never be able to objectively evaluate the truth. The right wing propaganda machine has buried you so deep in its lies that you will never see the light of day. Enjoy your life wallowing in ignorance and superstition, it’s nothing to me.

          • Michael Lawrence

            I’ve done the objective research for the points that I made, but I am not going to supply your points with objective research. I understand how hard it is to find information that backs a position that is wrong and it can be rather time consuming to search through so many liberal websites only to find the same liberal lies. It’s OK to stop searching…I don’t really want to read the lies you would provide me anyway.
            Hmm….although, if you were to provide holy scriptures to back your points, that would be interesting….. I just can’t imagine a liberal breaking out a bible…if they even have one…..

          • infidel1000

            Ever here of Freedom From Religion Foundation? How about Americans United for the Separation of Church and State? Some of them are atheists, some are not. They all know more about the bible than you and ten preachers ever will. Dogmatists like you will never learn anything because everything is already set in stone for you. You’re a waste, a drain on humanity. We only have to deal with you because you are a fact of life, like herpes or cancer. It’s a waste of time trying to reason with you. with you. As for using scripture to back up anything? That’s a red herring.

          • Michael Lawrence

            Nope, I’ve never heard of these atheist groups. I can be reasoned with, but you have not given me anything to consider… You simply spout talking points and offer very little proof of those talking points. Give me something other than the one article you linked that proves exactly what I have said…give me something that backs up your position. If you come to the debate, please, come prepared. Freedom from religion….no such thing, regardless of there being an organization. The 1st amendment does not guarantee you freedom FROM religion, but freedom OF religion. And the separation of church and state….that comes from a Thomas Jefferson letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. Jefferson explained that the 1st amendment created a “wall” or separation of church and state and would not allow the government to create a state religion. The Danbury Baptist Association had asked Jefferson why he would not set aside a day for fasting and thanksgiving as Washington and Adams had done during their presidencies. Jefferson felt that setting such a day or days would be an act in creating a state religion and he maintained that such a wall had to be kept in place to prevent a state religion from being formed.
            Keep in mind when you say we are like herpes or cancer, that we must put up with you also. Calling me a waste or a drain on humanity….wow, you have nothing but name calling left. What an empty argument, very weak indeed. Is that all you have? That was not even that imaginative…

          • infidel1000

            Never heard of them? Wow, no wonder you’re so ignorant. Obviously you only read what the right feeds you, and what makes you feel good. You live in the right wing bubble where Jesus is king and Reagan is queen and time stopped in 1960. Don’t know who they are? Well, I’ll tell you. They are your enemy. The most basic tenant of war is to know your enemy. But you’re to ignorant and stupid to even want to know who they are. They are dedicated to stamping out the kind of ignorance and superstition proliferated by morons like you. So go ahead and spew your hate and bile. Troglodytes like you are headed for extinction.

          • Michael Lawrence

            As I said in my last comment to you….you have nothing left but name calling…..if that is all you have left, you have already lost. And I’m pretty sure you only know of the tenants of war from your liberal reading list so you can sound tough and frightening. I have not considered these organizations my enemy, but thanks for pointing them out, I will make it a point to getting to know them and how to destroy them, since as you say, they are my enemy.
            You might want to add Sun Tzu’s The Art Of War and Myamoto Musashi’s Book of Five Rings to your reading list. I’m sure that these books are not on your list, but would give you a much better grasp on tenants of war. Both are worth the read and each time I reread them I learn something new or gain new insight into these writings. For example, another tenant of war….choose the ground that that you want to fight on and prepare the battle you want, not the battle the enemy wants.
            By the way, I have been civil with you, you are the one spewing hate and bile. If I were actually spewing hate and bile I would have resorted to calling you names long ago…names like communist shart blossom or pompous Obamabot….. but I refrained, I have nothing to gain by calling you names.
            I imagine that it is very frustrating to be wrong so often as you are.

          • infidel1000

            Gee…there you go with the namedropping again. So you read a book or two once. how impressive! I bet you get all the girls, too! We knew you and your ilk were the enemy of the human race before you attended your first young republican meeting. So now you know, because I just told you. You’ll never “destroy” us because we represent freedom and liberty, knowledge and progress.You represent corporate slavery and ignorance. A return to the dark ages, the inquisition, fascism, totalitarianism. You disdain knowledge and critical thinking. Your rule book even tells you to do so. Even worse, you crave the ultimate destruction of humanity for a mystical belief in mythical beings, because you fell hook, line, and sinker for a con that you won’t die if you believe in them. The oldest scam in the world. And if you’re gullible enough to believe THAT, you’re gullible enough to believe anything.

            What a coincidence, we also represent freedom and liberty. I guess we will have to see which version of freedom and liberty people actually want. As far as your knowledge and progress go, you can keep them. Your common core education is another step in dumbing down America and your progress has gotten our nation $17 trillion in debt, our nation is divided in so many different ways, and the jackbooted thuggery of your president is becoming more evident every day.

            Interesting that you rip on my religious beliefs when I have not ripped on yours. Satan’s greatest achievement was convincing the world he did not exist….convincing the world that God did not exist.

            So what did you buy into hook, line, and sinker? Perhaps it is you that is gullible believing that God does not exist.
            And yes, once upon a time, I did get all the girls. Now, I only have one very special girl. Very interestingly, all those girls seemed to want the same thing, a guy with a job where he didn’t have to ask if someone wanted fries with that…. Oh…I’m sorry…I didn’t mean to rip on your fast food job or your loneliness….

            Liberals only believe in some narrow freedoms to engage in some vices. But they want to control the virtues and regulate them. Pathetic.

          • Michael Lawrence

            I could not agree more with you.

          • delahaya

            infidel,

            How old are you, 12? Are you supposed to be on your parent’s computer? You write and reason as a teenager, its embarrassing. Even more embarrassing if you’re actually and adult. Get back to us when you grow up.

          • delahaya

            There are no points to support your “arguments” infadel, that’s the problem. Here’s a point of fact that can be proven one way of the other easily – is black unemployment higher now under Obama or when Bush was president?

        • Douglas W. Rodrigues

          Really? So why is it that only the DNC is against providing identification to vote? So why is it in California, they are toying with allowing non-citizen to vote? Why is it that the Democrats are the politicial party who created rules which required voter ballots in languages other than English, when naturalized citizens are supposed to have a working knowledging of the English lauguage? Everytime Republicans mention voter ID, the DNC goes ballistic. And who is suppressing voters? ID is needed to open a bank account; to get on a plane; to cash a check; tto buy alcohol, and to drive a car. Where is the suppression?.

          • infidel1000

            The republican party’s dying, and the only way they can survive is by rigging the game. Voter suppression schemes, disallowing voting for students, limiting voting times, locations, and registrations, which they know favor republicans, recalls, Gerrymandering, changing state electoral college laws, etc. I don’t know about anything you mentioned. The Pennsylvania republican party chair said, before the election that the voter suppression law passed there would elect Mitt Romney. Sounds like a strategy to me. Deny that.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Everything you mentioned is standard operating procedure by
            the DNC, or haven’t you noticed? What change of electoral college laws? You don’t know anything I mention because as a Liberal, you don’t even want to look to see what the truth is. How is showing an ID “voter suppresion? Without an ID, people can illegally vote numberous times, and that’s being done, or don’t you read the reports?

          • infidel1000

            Look, dude, I’m going to say this once. I’m not responsible for your education. What change of electoral college laws? I assume you have google. If so, use it. I’ll give you a hint. Pennsylvania 2012.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Do you really believe anybody is going to change the Electrocal College laws? Were they changed? You better take you meds before you give yourself a heart attack.

          • infidel1000

            Why not? A republican majority can change the way their state allocates their electoral college votes. We’ll have to wait and see if they go through with it. Republicans are trying everything they can to enhance their electoral position in view of their egregious demographic losses.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Oh, do you mean just like how the Democrats do? The electoral college is never going to change, no matter how much both sides bump their gums talking.

          • infidel1000

            Boy, your reading comprehension is challenged. States can change the way they allocate their electoral votes without affecting the electoral college. Not all states do it the same way.

          • delahaya

            Yes, and Democrats in those states have already done so several times.

          • delahaya

            You are a true idiot, Infadel. You need id for everything – including welfare and Obamacare. Why not the vote, which is so important? Are Democrat votes too stupid to navigate even the simplest voter id requirements?

          • delahaya

            Why was the national mall closed to veterans but open to a rally for illegal aliens?

        It never happened look it up.

          You”re kidding, aren’t you? Have you been living in a cave away from news reports?

          • Samm_one

            Examples, facts, simple truths that can prove your argument. That is all I ask, and if you really believe what you say you do these should not be hard to produce. I am actually a moderate, I read the news obsessively who is saying to you; You have not produced just one fact. Not one, not one cite able news source, not one fact in any detail. I have even said I will concede a point or two if you can prove me wrong. But you cant can you. I’m still here. Prove me wrong

        • Douglas W. Rodrigues

          There have been prosecutions of (Democrat) voter cheaters. Where have you been?

          • Samm_one

            I repeat it never happened look it up. Cite your examples fro respectable sources. By that i mean list articles case numbers and records of conviction or at lesat inquiry by law enforcement. Then I will concede the point.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Good grief, don’t you watch television? It was on most of the TV news networks when it happened. Take your head our of the sand. Yes, I know….in your eyes Democrats can do no wrong.

          • Samm_one

            I still see no facts. Facts are king in any debate.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Why don’t you simply telephone one of the major news networks and ask them? Besides, facts really don’t mean anything to you anyway, right?

          • Samm_one

            You are disproving your point come to me with facts,. I as a man am willing to concede your crap point if you come with facts. I now get that you now have none, but at the same time do not enter into intelligent discourse without your facts in order. I nor anyone else will vote because of your emotions, Notice your uptick of rhetoric and your lack of simply provable facts. Do not comment anymore without facts , just as the scientific method is a way of filtering out crap. I am using facts to prove you wrong.

            Just do better.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            I’ll take your advise and filter you out. If facts were scotch taped to your nose, you’d deny it if it was negative to so-called liberals..

          • Samm_one

            Interesting since you have cited none. Go away grown people are busy talking.

          • Samm_one

            It is sad that your feelings do not translate to facts, since you want to insult people, I can say that that is kinda vaginal. I am not a liberal, I am a moderate which means that I think on every issue. Try it. Close your cry hole until then.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Go take your propagandizing somewhere else. People like you disgusts me.

          • Samm_one

            People that like facts perhaps, or people that can come up with supporting evidence for their claims. While I admit you seem to be over your head in this debate, and have to resort to rhetoric, instead of facts, I have no agenda. You think your feelings are important, they are not and only serve to expose you, which is why I called them vaginal and can cite you to prove the crap nature of what you say. Grown ups are talking child and it is past your bedtime.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

          • delahaya

            Questions: Is black unemployment higher now under Obama than under Bush? That’s a fact that can be researched.

    • Michael Lawrence

      BRobCleveland does not get the satire of this article…he is a sad humorless liberal. Pity him and his lack of humor….

      • ac30fan

        By all means, please outline in detail Jackson’s clever use of satire, so all liberals can learn something about the subtle use humor. Seriously, since you offered, do us all a favor and bullet-point his wit, particularly where it diverges from his serious assertions.

        • Michael Lawrence

          I did not actually offer to explain the humor. If the humor of something has to be explained you obviously missed it. But just for you, I will explain the above article..you can share it with your liberal friends if you would like. Ready?
          Liberals have been known to call conservatives racists because they disagree with Obama. Kevin Jackson makes not of that….that is not the humorous part. Jackson then says America should elect a white Republican president. His reasoning is that those that disagree with a white Republican can’t be considered a racist. The humor is in the irony…. liberals like to call white people that disagree with the black president racists, but minorities that disagree with a white Republican president could not be considered racist.
          Oh….I forgot….. you’re a liberal that probably called white people racists because of their disagreement with Obama’s policies…. Hmm, maybe we should elect a black Republican and call white liberals racist because they disagree…. There is the actual ironic humor, turning the tables on white liberals.

          Liberals don’t seem to grasp the humor of something when it is making fun of them. Do you want me to diagram that out? Maybe create a decision algorithm for you? More simple language? I could explain this to you until the second Tuesday of next week and you still won’t get it. No wonder liberals are so shrill….

          • ac30fan

            Ad hominen attacks? Whoa. Clearly, I underestimated the intellectual titan I was dealing with. I surrender!

          • Michael Lawrence

            At least clearly understand your limitations when trying to understand humor.

    • jayleigh

      You are probably correct to a degree – but what the RNC wants is not what the American conservative voter wants. Don’t put us conservatives in the RNC camp philosophy because plenty of us are very unhappy with that renegade political power. Look how many people tried to float a third party in this last election. i opposed that at the time because i hoped we’d be able to defeat the incumbent if we all stuck together and voted for the RNC candidate. So, many disappointed with the candidate either abstained from voting or wrote in their alternate candidate’s name. So, if America wants a change and a reversion to conservative ideals, we’re going to have to exit the RNC and choose our own candidate, and frankly, i don’t care if that candidate is white, black or hispanic, asian, or from Mars, if he/she is a true conservative, and if you’ve been reading these conservative blogs, then you should realize by now that at least this group supports that philosophy. Allen West, Ben Carson, Herman Cain, Ted Cruz – yep, i’d vote for any one of them. Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin – yep, i’d vote for either of them. And, if a Black conservative woman threw her hat in the ring, i could support her, as well.

      So, Mr. Lib – go post somewhere else! We don’t need your faulty logic here.

      • infidel1000

        Those people are not conservatives-they are sociopaths. Megalomaniacs who only strive to aggrandize their personal power vis a vis others. Even the “moderate” Romney, who couldn’t make up his mind which story he wanted to stick with, made his fortune using his business acumen for the redistribution of wealth from the poor to the rich, plundering companies and their employees for their hard earned retirement benefits, medical insurance programs, and coaxing the maximum amount of federal, state, and local tax monies to be invested before seizing their funds and selling them off piecemeal. He no doubt would have tried to codify such privilege of the rich practices had he been elected. Wall street lives by the principle of welfare for the rich. These “conservatives” are simply parasites. Every one of them has their own agenda of power and wealth, but only for themselves and their friends. Common people don’t exist to them. Freedom, to them, is something that only applies to themselves and their allies. Some of them, West, for example, are simply psychopaths. Palin would gut religious freedom by eviscerating the establishment clause and the 14th amendment. When corporations control the government, the Constitution and Bill of Rights does not apply. Fascism and National socialism (which incidentally had nothing to do with socialism and everything to do with fascism) were ultimate partnerships of corporate and government totalitarianism. Combine this with “grass roots” teabaggery and NRA mentality (the American version of the SA) and funding from a few billionaires like the Koch brothers, and we get a puppet government run by the oligarchy of a few rich people, who will grind the people under their bootheel like so much dog excrement. Not the country I want my Grandchildren to live in.

        • Douglas W. Rodrigues

          Your thought process is truly twisted. From the manner in which you write, the term Psychopath may apply to you. You are so full of hate, and so lacking in objective deduction that you’re almost sounding like a crazy person. Well, Liberalism could be considered a mental illness.

            Did you suffer a traumatic brain injury at birth, or did your parents teach you to be stupid?

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            To see an example of stupid, look in the mirror. People like you are supporting a subversive FRAUD of a President intent on “Change” to a socialistic type government. I would suggest that you go visit a socialistic country (like I have) to learn what socialism truly is, instead of just drinking that Kool Aid from the DNC. Socialists lie to advance their agenda, but you haven’t figured that out yet.

          • infidel1000

            Obama’s about as socialist as Reagan, who would be a moderate democrat by today’s standards. Boy, you never miss a chance to brag about some alleged accomplishment, do you? You better watch out, or your head will swell up so much it’ll pop, like a big zit. You can lie all you like about Obama. He ticks me off too, but probably about different things.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Wow, now I know that you’re delusional. Imagine that, Reagan a moderate Democrat. Not in your wildest dreams.

          • infidel1000

            Reagan WAS a democrat, and jumped ship in 1962. The teabaggers have so radicalized the republican party that Reagan, the tax-raiser and cut-and-runner would be an outlier in today’s republican party.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            I used to be a Democrat too, until I finally realized all the lying being put out by the leadership. Reagan said, “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, The Democrat Party left me.” Now why would he say that? I’ll tell you why, the slow takeover of the DNC by the Communists was going on, that’s way. Then ask yourself, Why was Martin Luther King a Republican? Why was Abraham Lincoln a Republican? Why is it that the DNC has to change history, i.e. the DNC created the KKK. Nobody talks about that?

          • delahaya

            No, Reagan would be a Tea Partier. He fought the liberal, country club Republicans back in his day also.

          • delahaya

            Infidel,

            You literally have lost touch with reality and understand nothing of what is really going on. Sad.

        • delahaya

          That is rich. You say that the party trying to restrain government (and therefore their own power if they are politicans) is power mad. But the party that is trying to increase government, their own power, and control literally every aspect of everyone’s lives is not powermad! Wow! Now, you may agree with the liberal agenda, but surely it involves power. Also, you got the concept of sociopath totally wrong. Thanks for playing, or trying to at least.

        • delahaya

          You also fail to understand economics, or what Bain Capital does. Bain takes on failing businesses, get it? They are already failing. Bain hopes to save them. If they do so, they make money.

          As for freedom, you apparently don’t understand that concept either if you vote Democrat. Democrats pile on rules and regulations. For example, if Obamacare is so good why must we be forced onto it and why did the elites exempt themselves?

      • BRobCleveland

        You don’t want the truth, which is why you run from it like a vampire escapes from sunlight. But I will not run from here, because you people need to hear a different perspective . . . otherwise, you are going to keep believing the same b.s. and agreeing with it, no matter how erroneous it might be.

        Here is what is very silly about your post — I was not the one saying America “needs” a “White Republican president” . .. that was that fool who said it. Conservativism only works within the construct of a two party system because DUH!!! That is how our systems has developed. So you can rail against the Republican Party as much as you want, but where else are you going to go? Constitution Party? Create your own party? Obama and Romney both raised and spent about a billion last year in a battle where about 115 million votes were at stake. You think a third party can raise enough money, and be organised enough to get on 50 states plus the DC ballots without any use of Republican Party resources? Nope. Which is why trying to siphon of conservatives into a third party is an idiotic idea. You would do nothing but take more members, voters and money from the already shakey minority GOP, and turn it into an “also run.”

        Is that what you want?

        Another thing — The idea is, I guess, to disqualify any minorities form being the Republican nominee. So the Party of Lincoln would basically tell minorities they have a glass ceiling? He is saying that Ben Carson, for whatever his virtues, is simply not wanted as the Republican president? And he is saying that against a backdrop where the Dems ALREADY WON with a Black nominee? You already have SERIOUS PROBLEMS attracting minorities, but this fool’s idea is to marginalize the few minorities that you do have? Thanks for driving more people away, Kev!

        Last thing — what is he really saying about YOUR PARTY? Do you think any Dem would EVER write such an article about the Dem Party, where declaring that we “need” only a White president, or that minorities need to step back and let White folks run things?

        I think he is admitting that a non-White cannot get the nomination in your party . . . and, in that warped self-hating Black man’s mind, that is “a good thing.” Because he thinks America “needs” a WHITE Republican president, not an Indian American one, not an Asian one, not a Latino one, and certainly not a Black one. Well if the party is thinking like this, you can rest assured that you won’t have any minorities “bothering” you for a leadership position in your party. Because you won’t have any minorities in your party . . . .

    • delahaya

      So, basically you’re a racist who believes in demographics as long as whites aren’t in the majority. Got it. Thanks.

    Wow, what an interesting perspective. That’s mighty white of ya.

    • jayleigh

      That’s insulting and unworthy of anyone who is conservative. It’s true! I supported Herman Cain – i would have supported West or any Black who stood for upholding the Constitution. It’s not “white” of me to do that. Your comment smacks of racist snobbery.

      • David Boone

        Hm, how fascinating. No, seriously, the levels of “meta” in this issue are quite interesting to me. I’m actually not conservative (at least not in relation to mainstream American politics), and my comment was actually meant to be snarky, ironic, and tongue-in-cheek.

        • jayleigh

          Well, i think that only works when people know you personally. Since on a blog, people are anonymous and you can’t see the facial expression, snarky doesn’t really work all that well, and irony is hard to achieve, but maybe easier than snark, eh?

    • LastNameFirst

      I do hope that you are separating the republican party from conservatives in that statement as I do not affiliate myself with any party, but do consider myself a moderate conservative. I know that may not sound right to some of you out there, but I don’t let the trifle things bother me as long as it doesn’t interfere with my freedoms. There are a lot of things that the government has stuck its big nose into that they shouldn’t have. Some of it is the gov’s fault and some of it the people’s fault. I don’t care about skin color, but I do care about being an American. And so far the dems have shown under their current leader in the WH that they are not American nor do they support America.

  • Big___D

    Wrong. What we need is a patriotic conservative president who enforces our laws and upholds the constitution. Key principles: Limited government, fiscal responsibility, free markets.

    We don’t give a care whether this person is white, black, green, female, mormon, atheist, republican, libertarian, whatever.
    The democrats have pretty much demonstrated that whomever they want to elect do not meet these criteria.

    • jayleigh

      Well, you won’t find that criteria in any DemO-Rat candidate! As a body, they are socialists 100% – they truly believe it is good policy to take from the rich and give to the poor and create a class envy society in order to justify robbing Peter to pay Paul. So, since the GOP doesn’t want to listen to the conservatives and keep putting up non-starters, it’s time, (sigh) to look at third party options. But that means all GOP die-hard voters need to support the candidate who will strive to bring America back to it’s Constitutional origins, and then wave good by to the RNC!

  • jayleigh

    Okay, i’m going to write in Ronald Reagan for POTUS and Maggie Thatcher for VIP. Think they’ll come back to rescue us? i know, i know, Maggie was a Brit, but our current POTUS is a Kenyan, or an Indonesian, or a… whatever, he’s not an American. So, why can’t we have Maggie and Ronnie sent back to clean up this mess? lol

  • Marlboro.Stan

    Even the premise of the story debunks the substance of the story. Black folks can’t have pride unless they are lead by a white president? <– That's broken down and whipped slave mentality right there. <– You sir have accepted your 2nd class citizenship, part and parcel.

            But so do whites and every other ethinic group. America is still picking up after Bush. Lets not forget also, that R’thug/Teabaggies refused to pass a jobs bill of their own or the one PO sent to Congress.

            The unemployment rate has nothing to do with PO presidency. Some conveniently forget

            that 800,000 jobs were being lost every month under Bush starting in September of 2008 and continued as companies laid off workers or stopped hiring. Never mind there were ongoing jobs losses in smaller increments under Bush prior to the economic crash which increased the # of people loosing their jobs.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Bush hasn’t been President for five years. At what point in time does Barack Obama take responsibility? Obama was going to get this country back on the right track. Has he? Why not? Obama is a pathological liar who can only talk a good game by telling Liberals everything they want to hear. Of course Dishonest Used Car Salesmen do the same thing.

          • zola98

            And he has and would have improved the economy and jobs had R’thugs/Teabaggies not refused to pass the jobs bill, the bill raising taxes on the wealthy etc. He saved the auto industry that has created more jobs since, the housing market has improved, 7.5 million jobs created since 2009, fair pay act, improved benefits for Vets, oil production has increased, the stock market has doubled to list a few. He has improved relations around the Globe, world leaders respect him, he got Bin Laden and a lot of his group to list a few. Oh yeah, Got rid of DOMA, DADT

            Name me one thing the R’thugs/Teabaggies have done that benefited the American people, just one. Just another ignorant, pathetic, know nothing troll. Bye!!

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            Obviously you’ve been getting your talking points from the DNC propaganda make believe list. Everything you mention has no basis in fact. The DNC is bankrupting the country. Saved the auto industry? More like illegally taking control of a private industry to pay-off his Union supporters and rob investment money from the investors. Nothing in the Constitution allows Obama to legally do that. Where are all of the 7.5 million jobs created? None of them are in my town. People here are being cut back to 30 or less hours per week. Fair pay act? Raising the minumum pay will simply result in less jobs for unskilled labor. Oil production? Obama has absolutely nothing to do with increased oil production that is taking place on private lands. Improved relation around the Globe? Obama is a laughing stock. Got Ben Laden? He had nothing to do with it. Valerie Jarret had instructed Obama NOT to go after Ben Laden. It took Hillary Clinton to brow beat Obama into giving the okay to the Seal Team, otherwise Obama would have done nothing. But of course Obama always takes credit for anything that goes right, but takes no blame for anything that goes wrong. In fact, Obama had arrainged to have a Navy Admiral take the blame if anything went wrong on that raid.
            What have TEA Baggers done? The TEA Party has made the public aware of the insanity of government overspending. The TEA Party had intimidated the Washington politicians to finally do something about the out of control spending where 40 cents of each dollar spent is borrowed money. This can’t go on forever! The TEA Party has brought to light the subversion and treason going on in Washinton by the Obama administration as Obama and his “Progressives” (read: Communists) slowly attempt to overthrow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Also, the only thugs I’ve seen in the “News” were Union thugs of the left-wing physically assaulting people at Conservative rallys. You left-wing idiots like to toss around insulting names to demean people, but in reality it’s the left-wing who really deserves the insults because you people are truly stupid.

            First off you need to buy yourself a dictionary and look up the definition of communism. PO had done all that I stated.
            It was a loan to the Auto Industry which has been mostly paid back, and yes, he saved all those jobs and more has since been added.

            Hillary Clinton stated publicly that she was against going after Bin Laden, so I don’t know where you get the idea that she forced PO’s hand.

            And yes, the jobs #s have increased since PO took office, he has nothing to do with employees reducing their employees’ hours, this is about profit for them, less hours, more work demanded of their employess. Raising the mimimum will be just an excuse for people like you and employers to lay off more people.
            I suppose you thought Bush did a great job as POTUS. And yes, PO had done a lot to restore respect for America around the world, you can deny it all you want, but it’s a fact, he’s respected and at least can hold an intelligent conversation.

            GM owes the Taxpayers 25 Billion dollars. The last payment made was two years ago. Do you really expect the Taxpayers to see anymore of that money?

          • delahaya

            Zola,

            Its sad how ignorant you are. The taxpayers lost tens of billions on the auto bailout deal. GM STILL might go under as they are simply stockpiling inventory even right now! And the work hours are being reduced because of Obamacare! Lastly, Obama can’t even give a speech without his teleprompter! LOL I swear Obama could slap a disabled girl in a wheelchair in the middle of a press conference and you’d say either its “Bush’s fault” or that she deserved it.

          • delahaya

            Hard to do anything when you’re not a majority. At least The Tea Party hasn’t done what Obama has done – give us record homelessness, record poverty, record sustained unemployment, record food stamp dependency, recod low labor participation, record deficits, record destruction of middle class wealh, first-ever downgrade of our nation’s credit, and so on.etc.

          • Douglas W. Rodrigues

            So what happened to all of that money from the Stimulus that was supposed to create “shovel ready jobs,” “rebuilding the infrastructure,” and “fixing highways?”: Where did all that money go? I’ll tell you where…the banks are still sitting on it because in Obama’s own words, “The banks are too big to fail.” Taxpayers GAVE the banks millions of dollars…for what? Oh, millions also went to Obama’s favorite “green” companies who went bankrupt. Anybody with a brain could see that coming. Obama would have trouble running a hotdog stand, but he thinks he’s knowledgable enough to decide what banks, and businesses should be funded with free tax money. Obama is an amateur with it comes to business. He has no business sense but will use your taxed money to manipulate his latest social experiment.

          • delahaya

            Except Zola, what you post simply untrue. We had a much lower rate of unemployment and higher rate of growth under Bush, not nearly that job loss. Bush also had to deal with the bursting of the Y2K bubble, the mortgage meltdown, the accounting firm scandals, and the 9/11 attack and recession. I can’t even imagine how much Obama would have whined in his place!

          • zola98

            You call loosing 800,000 jobs a month under Bush from September 2008 into 2009(domino effect) due to Wall street meltdown, and the financial crash good governance?

            There’s also the housing market crash that left many people homeless,including many middle class. All the stuff you mention above was caused by Bush. And what Y2K bubble burst are you referring. Every developed country had to adjust for the Y2K, it wasn’t a major problems if memory serves me.
            You should Google the Bush years, better yet go back to your idol, doofus Raygun and see how Republican Presidents have done compated to Democratic Presidents. I’m kinda busy getting supper ready which is more important otherwise I would do your homework for you. Exercise those fingers.

    “White people”. “Black people”. As if any individual (or Party) speaks on behalf of an entire race. I’m a White guy, and am horrified by some of the comments posted here, and in response to other articles by Kevin Jackson – some of which are, in no doubt, authored by other Whites. These people don’t speak for me

    Jackson concocted an absurd premise, and used a myriad of logical fallacies to arrive at his deliberately inflammatory conclusion: that Blacks can only have dignity under a White President.

    This sort of rhetoric has made him the odd-ball darling of GOP fear mongers who praise him, and use his words to advance their stance that all correct thinking Blacks (after considering the evidence) should also arrive at his twisted conclusion.

    • delahaya

  • carolina mama

    (Looked through the comments below first) Busy day, Mr. Jackson?

    I agree with you. Even though I’m white, the situation that has been going on in the black community in the past five years has been hard to watch. That has more to do with my belief that human beings are capable of much rather than other causes like “white guilt” or racial prejudice towards President Obama.

    At first, I though “the black community won’t tolerate this for long…they’ll start speaking out loud and clear”. But they haven’t. And there’s no indication that they will either.

    Incredibly sad.

    you forget the fact that unemployment was over 12% when Obama took office. unemployment for minorities is always higher. kevin Jackson is nothing but a spin doctor. as soon as HE mentioned fox news HE LOST ALL CREDITABILITY. they (fox and gopers) have questioned Obama’s birth and his religion. but never question Cruz or Romney.birth.

    • DangIt Bobby

      Fox News is bad… And CNN is good?

    • LastNameFirst

      Romney produced his when he ran for the presidency; so did McCain. Cruz hasn’t ran for presidency yet.
      Obama has yet to produce a true legit birth certificate. The one he claims is been proven a fake.
      Unemployment was at 8.9% when he took office in 2009. Not sure where your getting your false data, but you might want to start researching somewhere else.

      • Christopher Luther

        No, it hasn’t been proven. Stick that claim back up your ass where it came from.

        • LastNameFirst

          Really? Read the document that he produced again. It doesn’t take a forensic scientist to know that it’s fake. Common sense will tell you it’s fake. They are hoping that no one will notice the BIG mistake. What does it say for his race on his birth certificate? Read it and see.

          • Christopher Luther

            On both the originally released “short form” and the vaunted “Long Form” that you guys whined and moaned and bitched for, it doesn’t give his race. It gives his father’s race as “African” and his mother’s as “Caucasian”. Let me guess you’re getting your facts from chain letters which claim that the certificate identifies him as “African American”, “proving” it is fake because that was not the term in use at the time? Maybe YOU are the one who should read the birth certificate.

            This argument is as stupid as the problem my brother had with his daughter’s passport. We’re a biracial family and she’s brown skinned yet one form had her as white so he had to get it corrected to reflect her true ethnicity.

            What’s with America and ones colour, we don’t even collect that data here in Canada anymore, not on hosptial admission forms and not on voter registration form. We don’t even ask what party one is a member/supporter of. We’re all Canadians no matter the nationality, language or ethnicity.
            Give it a rest already. President Obama was born in the United States of America, his maternal Grandfather and great Uncle both wore the uniform during war time.

            LOL

            Pathetic as F**K. First you present a claim (a second-hand claim, at that), then you are shown CONCRETE evidence demonstrating that claim to be false. Left with nothing whatsoever to support your original claim, you simply accuse the one presenting the evidence of bias, thus ensuring you never have to address the evidence itself. Well, gee, where did you get YOUR evidence? Oh, right. “Common sense”. The same sort of “common sense” that once held that the Earth was at literal the center of the Universe.

            You know, I almost believed you would actually admit you were wrong, but you pulled it off. A spectacular display of denial and delusion, sir. Good show.

          • delahaya

            Truth is, no one knows for sure. What we DO know for sure is that Obama was reared during his formative years outside the US in a Muslim country where he ate dog and recited Muslim prayers. The kids in the USA at the time were eating hotdogs and apple pie and going to church. There is a big difference. Obama is not culturally American and still sees himself as an outsider.

          • Christopher Luther

            No, the truth is that Obama was educated in a mostly secular environment while having an array of experiences that most children in the U.S. did not.

            Would you make the same criticism of military brats who spend their formative years outside of the country? I doubt it.

            I never went to church as a kid and I don’t care much for apple pie or hot dogs. Does that mean I’m not American?

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      It’s quaint the way progressives have tried to fluff “birtherism” up into something that matters.

      When the roles were reversed, progressives accused President Bush of a wide range of bizarre things:
      – Conspiring with the president of Diebold to rig electronic voting machines.
      – Having Sen. Paul Wellstone murdered
      – Sending the Navy SEALs to New Orleans to rig the levees with explosives so that the 9th district could be “ethnically cleansed” under the cover of hurricane Katrina.

      Not the least of these was the “Truther” notion, from which the term “birther” is derived and which supposes that President Bush conspired with the Bin Laden family via the Carlslyle Group to effect the 9-11 attacks, thus providing an excuse to start a war intended to facilitate the construction of a natural gas pipeline through Afghanistan. A 2009 Scripps Howard poll documented that 51% of Democrats believe this.

      Now the same people want us to be shocked and upset at the persistence of some people in believing that President Obama was born in Kenya. The implications of which are… well, somewhat less calumnious than the Truther thing “birtherism” is meant to supersede. And “birtherism” even came from their own ranks, from the oppo research of Obama’s primary election opponent and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

      Like I said. The phony outrage about “conspiracy theories” is quaint nonsense.

      • delahaya

        Exactly, Hillary was the first “Birther”. LOL.

    • delahaya

      That is simply untrue. Unemployment was much lower than that when Obama took office. I know the facts hurt, but try actually looking the truth in the face sometime. Black unemployment and poverty are higher under Obama than under Bush, period. End of story.

    Please note Kevin Jackson is not the spokesperson for Black Men (or Women) in America. He is the spokesperson for himself and he is entitled to his opinion.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      We know. Michael Eric Dyson is the spokesperson for Black Men. Or not.

      What is your problem with nonconformity that your immediate reaction to a black conservative posting something at his own website is to log in and disclaim to the public that he is not “the spokesperson for Black Men”. Do you honestly think that people believe that there is such a thing as the singular, official Black Agenda? Or do you just really want there to be, and have it be yours?

      • allylloyd

        Actually as a BLACK AMERICAN WOMAN, I have to say YES, some Americans think that there are BLACK spokespeople!! Sorry, but we all have mouths and tongues and we all know our First Amendment rights. We all have the right to free speech, but some of us Black folks had Grandmothers who taught about another right we have, “THE RIGHT TO KEEP OUR MOUTHS SHUT!!!”

    Perhaps some of the commenters on this site, those insisting that this blog is just another tongue-in-cheek example of Republican wit, can explain why this particular article is posted under Articles->Politics? I mean seeing as there is an Articles->Satire & Irony section on the site where it could have been posted, can we not conclude that the post reflects the author’s true opinions? Go ahead: make more feeble attempts to point out how satirical, ironic & hilarious his reverse racism tome is. After that, what have you got? An un-funny, and ugly post that serves only to divide, and advance his own disingenuous (and highly lucrative) position within the GOP of the rare, “clear thinking” Black man who “gets it”.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      …how satirical, ironic & hilarious his reverse racism tome is…

      There is nothing in this article mentioning “reverse racism”. Rather, it argues that the extravagant use of empty accusations of racism to forestall criticism of the President has damaged democracy and blinded black constituents to the ways their interests have been neglected. You may debate those points. If you’d rather debate “reverse racism” you’d be talking with yourself.

      Also, “tome” means “book”.

      • ac30fan

        As far as I can see, the only obvious humor in the article is multiple references to the 1st President “recognized” as Black. Clearly, Clinton was our first Black President.

  • llovejim

    that is the most ignorant article i have ever read. a completely fallacious argument, that because black unemployment went down when reagan was president, if that even happened, it was because he was a white republican, as if his color had something to do his policy of huge tax cuts for the rich by 42% while raising taxes for everybody else 11 times, as if that somehow made employment go up. in the 80’s, we were still the manufacturing giant of the world. no american company outsourced. unions were still strong. oil prices had dropped way down from embargo levels of the 70’s, and we were stuck in no wars. despite that, reagan still somehow managed to triple the national debt. no one hires one person because they got a 100,000 income tax cut. nobody. ever. only increased DEMAND drives increased production which drives hiring more workers. duh. giving money to already rich guys in the form of huge tax cuts did not create on new job. period. only a dumb black man, or dumb man or woman of any color, would make that connection.

      Dude, Reagan was not in Congress, he couldn’t raise taxes. He had to sign bills full of both good and bad things. By that standard Obama has raised taxes 100’s of times, not just the 15 major ways!

  • http://mindofbrosephus.wordpress.com/ Brosephus

    And the Reagan record?

    African-American columnist Joseph Perkins has studied the effects of Reaganomics on black America. He found that, after the Reagan tax cuts gained traction, African-American unemployment fell from 19.5 percent in 1983 to 11.4 percent in 1989.

    And I’m guessing that since Reagan’s Black unemployment rate was still twice the national average, he really didn’t do anything different or extraordinary for Black employment as any other president had done since 1964. All one has to do is look at the historical trend of Black unemployment to see that. It has constantly remained at around twice the national average since it has been tracked from the Civil Rights Era.

    “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs…

    There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public”.

        That would be because White people are far larger a group than any other race.

        I bet you don’t apply that same logic to why Blacks school children score lower in school testing then White children!

        I bet to you the reason that blacks score lower then whites is because whitey is unfair!

        You just like all the other people who don’t know how to think for themselves fail to see as usual that it is a matter of NUMBERS.

        • TexasJester

          Maybe they test lower because the prevailing mentality is that it’s “cool” (or “rad” or “the bomb” or “sick” or whatever the kids are using today) to fail? Maybe it’s because the liberals running today’s education are purposely dumbing down the education — especially in the inner cities, where a majority of blacks live? Maybe it’s because living in the inner cities, many don’t see an education as a way out of the liberal-induced poverty they live in, because they don’t think they can afford college, and simply give up?

          Whitey is unfair? That’s a racist remark, and you shouldn’t say that! Oh – wait – since it’s against whites, it’s not racist. but if I said “blacky is unfair!”, that would be racist. Why? Why is it that a black person can attack a white politician’s policies and not be called racist, yet if a white person attacks a black politician’s policies, that IS racist??

          Why is it that if a group of white people attack a black person, based on the color of the black person’s skin, that’s racist (and it is!); yet if a group of black people attack a white person based on the color of the white person’s skin, that’s NOT racist (and it certainly IS racist!)?

          Under Baracka Hussein al Obama bin Kenya, a faux black (half-white and half muslim), has INCREASED racial tension in this country to levels we haven’t seen in 50 years. Truly sad.

      Exactly. Obama does not have an historically American viewpoint. He was reared during his formative years in foreign lands and his dad was a rabid anti-colonialist. Obama then was further reared in a left-wing academic bubble by his radical mother, who exposed him to Ayers, and Alinsky and so on. He did NOT grow up playing baseball and eating apple pie. Obama grew up pretending to be a foreign exotic, smoking dope, and working the leftist political, racial-spoils system for advancement. We still have no idea of his academic record. There are professors in his department who have never met him or remember him. Not saying he didn’t attend, but if he did he was a near total slacker dope head. Then, as an adult, Obama voluntarily attended rabidly anti-American churches preaching black liberation philosophy instead of religion. I really don’t think people of all races in this country realize just how little Obama has in common with them and how small his understanding of his own country is.

      • Eagle 77

        Funny thing about his degree from Columbia. The ‘Ivies’ don’t accept transfer students, unless they are exchange students. When they accept a student, it is expected that he will be part of a class which will become part of the larger college alumni community. They want to form and create a college identity.

  • Jose

    Kevin, first, have you thought of running for Congress? You got my vote! You certainly have the tool bags that other so-called ‘conservatives’ should have but don’t, to stand up to the pressures of these socialist degenerate democrats (many or our ‘conservative’ representatives come to mind). Second, are you being spied on by the current administration? …just sayin’. And third, is the IRS harassing you for, well…

    You are right, the color of the president should NOT hinder us from 1- pointing out he IS black WITHOUT being called a ‘racist’, 2- voicing our opinion that his policies have and are presently hurting our healthcare, economy, employment, infrastructure, allies, global presence/respect and our country as a whole, again, WITHOUT being called a ‘racist’ and 3- call him out on the fact that he is using ‘Political Correctness’ as a weapon to bludgeon the 1st Amendment, silence the masses and put us closer to communism, again,WITHOUT being called a ‘racist’.

    oBAMA’s policies do not have legitimate benefits for the American people. So, he hides behind lies, actors and celebrities (who are really as dumb as a box of rocks) to PUSH his lies about ‘his good polices’. If oBAMA’s policies were so good, they should be able to stand on their own merits (oBAMACARE aka glitchy-care comes to mind) – without the lies and back room deals and arm wrenching, again, WITHOUT being called a ‘racist’.

    Kevin, we still have our 1st Amendment, still intact, right?! I mean, the oBAMA brown-shirts won’t be goose stepping it to my front door to, well, make me ‘conform’ because I am voicing an opinion that is contrary to ‘The One’?

    A parting shot: All conservatives should watch the sitcomLast Man Standing Series – Airs Fridays at 8/7c on ABC.’ with Tim Allen. He (Tim Allen) slams oBAMA unmercifully in every episode…and he is still on the air.

    Mr. Jackson destroys his own argument right here, when he says: “The election of a recognized black president was not supposed to change anything. In fact, it was supposed to (1) ease any perceived racial tensions, and (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race. So America would be more free than ever to discuss the issues.”

    In one breath, he claims that the election of a black President “was not supposed to change anything.” In his next line, however, he contradicts himself. He claims that, “in fact, [the election of a recognized black president]” would revolutionize race relations by magically “[easing] any perceived racial tensions,” and to completely turn the American legislative system on its head by instantly and inexplicably “allowing] the government to focus on legislating without race.”

    This is the center of his argument. He says this “is why having a white Republican president is best for the country.”

    Let’s examine what he’s saying: He is trying to argue that the election of a Black President shouldn’t change anything; BUT it should only absolutely revolutionize far-reaching aspects of the social and political structures of the United States.

    This huge contradiction at the foundation of his argument means that his entire argument is invalid. Since he has destroyed this part of his own presentation, the rest is unnecessary. His entire article fails.

    • D Holder

      FYI, Mr. Jackson, did not destroy anything. In saying that the election of a black president wouldn’t change anything, he was referring to CRITICIZING a president for his/her policies, not his/her race. The prefacing context explained that. His point is that criticisms against Mr. Obama are being blamed on race, rather than disagreement. Did you read the whole article? How did you miss that MAIN POINT?

      • Mike

        They NEVER read the whole article when leftys criticize!

        Note Tim V Johnsons last statement, “This huge contradiction at the foundation of his argument means that his entire argument is invalid. Since he has destroyed this part of his own presentation, the rest is unnecessary. His entire article fails.”

        He is telling you right there he didn’t read the article past that seeming contradiction.
        Then he just goes on to talk about his own point of view.

        Tim V Johnson stopped at the very next line because he just couldn’t handle Kevin’s summary statement (which wasn’t a summary at all but it was to TIM!)

        “Not the case. And that is why having a white Republican president is best for the country,” is the LAST sentence Tim V read!!

        You can tell by his entire post that is as far as he got!

        • jayhg

          more bullshit, Kevin.

        • Tim V Johnson

          I read the whole article. My comment stands. It has nothing to do with my point of view. It has only to do with the logical construction of an argument.

          I actually thought that Mr. Jackson raised some interesting points at times about motivation and intent, and how that manifest through the various filters of race. I get it. He is not really saying that America needs a White President–he is taking a satirical jab at those who assume that this is the obvious answer to what ails us…

          The piece fails to hang together, however. If his intent in this piece is serious, his logic fails (this is based on the way that logic construction of arguments works). If his intent is satire or hyperbole, then the article possibly makes a bit more sense, although that meaning gets lost in the author’s bitterness (this statement is based on my opinion).

          • Jeremy Brown

            I believe you that you read the article. And I believe you when you say you think you “get it” – his intent.

            However, from reading your post above there are some problems between “getting it” and your views on what kind of change electing a black President should accomplish, or demonstrate has already taken place.

            The primary overarching need in this country – for both the minorities and the majority – is to stop seeing themselves as a _ -American (The blank is for their color or nation of origin).

            We need to stop identifying ourselves most closely with our color, our gender, and/or our sexual orientation. That will allow actual dialogue, and actual beneficial results to happen in this country.

            The second a person criticizes a black man, or a woman, or a homosexual who holds and office or a position of influence – even if the criticism is accurate, well-presented, and well-founded – the media, many of the minorities, and the liberal portion of the majority shout ridiculous things like “racism”, “bigot”, “homophobes”, “misogynist”, “chauvinist”, and a host of other such labels.

            That stops all intelligent conversation and progress.

            We have gotten absolutely NOWHERE, until all people of color in this country (or at least the vast majority) can see another person of color be criticized and not have their mind immediately go to racism. And we never will if that continues.

            I’m not laying all of the responsibility on minorities either. However, the majority is unable to accomplish much when they are in a position of defending themselves or attacking lies all the time.

          • Tim V Johnson

            Those are excellent observations. I guess I just wish it felt like the author had accomplished in his article what you have explained in a couple of paragraphs.

            The author employs more than a bit of hyperbole in order to make his point (which I can often appreciate; I use it myself sometimes). The author seems intelligent and well-spoken, but I am not familiar with a lot of his writing, so I cannot compare how successful he is at satire.

            In this article, however, his tone seems so pointed that his satire/parody/hyperbole/whatever loses its effect–so much so, in fact, that upon first read, the piece feels just feels like an ill-informed screed.

          • Jeremy Brown

            I suppose we can agree on this. I’m not any more familiar with him than you are. I actually saw the link on a friend’s Facebook page.

            Do you have your own blogs or articles Tim?

          • Tim V Johnson

      It is a typo.
      There should be a question mark after the word anything. As in,
      The election of a recognized black presidenet was not supposed to change anything? IN FACT,

      Are you really incapable of seeing an obvious mistake?

      Like anyone would contradict themselves in the very same paragraph. But I do understand your thinking because liberals do it all the time and swear by it.

      • jayhg

        Hey Mr. Jackson, cause I know that’s you, Kevin. I know you look in the mirror and walking away crying when you see that you’re looking back at a black face….poor fool that you are to so hate being black.

      • Tim V Johnson

        Yeah, right. Because you are Mr. Jackson’s editor? He obviously would let slide something that completely changes the meaning of his entire piece?

        Also, you obviously completely misunderstand my thinking; otherwise, you would have bothered to include some sort of fact or statistic to support your specious claims about liberals. Your comment, therefore, will not be allowed. Sorry.

    • delahaya

      Mr. Jackson meant that the election of Obama should not change the fact free citizens can criticize their president. In addition, it was supposed to help with racial discourse. That first sentence references what went before.

  • Will Trice

    ” Juan Williams of Fox News said that mentioning the Constitution is racist, and the list goes on.” When the hell did Juan Williams become a “Lefty?” If you read Jackson’s biography it’s clear that he, unlike Juan Williams, has failed to master the basic rules of English grammar.
    Jackson is getting pimped harder than a hooker at a sales convention, the only difference is that the hooker at least understands the terms of the bargain that she struck.

    • he_who_scoffs_at_danger

      He never became a “Righty”. I know he was on FOX a lot, but his home base was NPR for most of his career. Now his job is to play Hannity and Colmes with Bill O’Reilly. So, perhaps not the leftiest lefty out there, but…

  • Thomas Joaquin

    I’m always surprised and impressed when a site with a particular political viewpoint uses hard data to support arguments. Discussions are always more reasonable when they’re based on facts.

    I can’t argue with your statistics, but I fail to see in your article an argument connecting Pres. Obama to the growing disparity in income between blacks and whites. But there are factors posed by researchers and economist that set out significant causes.

    An article in the Wall Street Journal by Neil Shah published in February, 2013, summarize the factors that have been found to contribute to the “racial wealth gap” None of the factors has any relationship to who happens to be president.

    The main contributing factor to the disparity appears to be wealth, especially investment in home ownership and other assets that can be inherited. There are disparities between whites and black in home ownership, bank foreclosures, average wage, the amount to debt of graduating college students and others. The WSJ article provides a good, short summary as well as references to sources.

    The WSJ article should have the last word:

    “The findings are the latest evidence that barriers in workplaces, schools and communities — rather than personal attributes and cultural factors — may be making it harder for blacks to accumulate wealth than whites over time.”

    • Mike

      Why should the WSJ article have the last word? Because you agree with them more?

      The Barriers that people keep dreaming up are coming down and have been coming down more and more every generation.

      Thinking something needs to be done more then what already has been is moronic!!

      This comment by the WSJ is IGNORANT because the evidence suggests the exact opposite!!
      That factors such as race is becoming a MUTE FACTOR and people are becoming far less prejudice in their decisions are making it easier and easier for blacks to accumulate wealth over time.

      It is ALSO easier for Blacks to run for President and WIN now.

      The Barriers in School for blacks? You mean inner city schools? Well I happen to know for a fact that Blacks CHOOSE to stay in the inner city!
      I offered to take a few friends of mine who had children out of the city so they could raise their children in the county where blacks absolutely have access to better education and they refused to take the offer because she didn’t want to leave the city!!

      Barriers for blacks in the workplace? That is just absurd and is far less then it was 25 years ago. SO, Over time, it is easier for blacks to make something of themselves.

      THE ONLY Statistic which makes blacks score lower then whites on tests is the CITY COUNTY Factor.

      Blacks in the County get the same education as whites. If they don’t understand in the County than what do you suggest we dumb down the white kids? Well, I don’t believe that blacks in the Counties score lower because they are more dumb. I think its a pure NUMBERS game. There are more whites therefore more of a percentage in the County score higher then blacks overall. That doesn’t mean Black children in County schools don’t have a chance. That is nonsense.

    • Jeremy Brown

      George W. Bush – everyone’s favorite punching bag – actually was the one trying to push for home ownership to be more accessible for ALL.

      Now I’m not a Bushophile, so I’m not here to defend everything he was about. And I know that the housing bubble that started with Clinton and popped with Bush was a huge problem – but that was for much different reasons than what Bush was pushing forward.

      The problem is that by the time a great many young black men and black women leave high school – particularly in more urban areas or Democratic strongholds, they have been brainwashed by the media and education system of the left-wing and that leaves them without the education and philosophies that will enable the creation of wealth. The left only knows how to make and keep slaves to their agendas and their social programs. There is no discernable and reasonable path to self-sufficiency. The right-wing, despite any of your opinions about them on a great number of issues, is where people learn about self-sufficiency and financial education.

      Perhaps you should consider those things, and many others.

      • betterfredthandead

        And where were ya’ll “Christians” when all this was coming down!

        The “right-wing” only knows GREED and they worship at the altar of their god Mammon.

        • Jeremy Brown

          Troll, troll, troll – lol.

          I agree that a good many people on the right are greedy and worship Mammom – absolutely. Not I though – I worship Jesus Christ and Him alone.

          However, most of the left-wing worships at that same altar. That’s the world system, and in case you hadn’t noticed, most of the world is on it. That’s why the left justifies the murdering of millions of unborn black babies through abortion, and specifically target the predominantly black neighborhoods – that’s racism at its most disgusting and heinous being perpetrated by your friendly neighborhood liberals. And they do it for the sake of filthy lucre.

          Communism and socialism are the constructs of materialist pigs as much as capitalism is – even moreso I would suggest.

          Oh yeah – Bush did other things too – some worthy of criticism and some not.

          You just say idiotic things bro.

          That’s why you’re behavior is called – trolling!

          And Obama saw Bush’s two wars and raised him two more!

    • delahaya

      It also depends on what is being measure, wealth or income. Wealth is accumulated assets. So, the “gap” between rich and poor (in the absence of huge intervention) will always get larger simply as a function of math. For example, if I drive 55 mph and you drive 65 mph, after one hour you will be 10 miles ahead. After two hours, though, you will be 20 miles ahead, and on. The “gap” between us grows. It always will even though I am moving forward also. Now, money can also earn more money, so if you save your “gap”. it wil grow another bit on itself. But there is not trickery involved.

        • Michael Lawrence

          The government is broke. October 17th, this coming Thursday, the government has to borrow more money or cut spending. It has no choice in this. If the debt ceiling is not raised, no more money can be borrowed. At that point, the government will only be able to spend the amount of revenue that is brought in.
          As far as the shutdown goes….maybe you have not kept up on current events, but part of the government is closed and has been since October 1.

          Republican shakedown….hardly. The Republicans have passed several bills that would have funded and thus reopened all of government. It is the Democrats and the president that have refused to negotiate or cooperate on reopening the closed portions of the government.
          So, don’t be a troll, stop drinking the KoolAid, get current on what is going on, and pull your head out of Obama’s sand.

        • delahaya

          But that is not the objective. By the same measure, you could say Obama’s war on the private sector, which lost 9 million jobs in the last 5 years, is racist because it affects white people more. I don’t believe it. Just think, in this case, Obama is following collectivist economics that dont’ work.

That’s what you’re saying.

      And if white people support President Obama – who endorses the industry and practice that takes more African-American lives than any other (with religious fervency and zealousness), sends black troops to their deaths in countries full of brown people who he wants to kill, drone strikes brown people in other countries like no President ever before, who create and escalate institutions that hold down black people in this country more than slavery ever could (welfare, ACA, TANf, etc), has been escalating the already abysmal destruction of the US education system at the hands of the DOE, stirs us racial and income divides like no President in the last 40 years, enslaves black families as well as white with the exceptional level of borrowing more U.S. debt that he is escalating, and has kept virtually NONE of his campaign promises – these folks are the ones who aren’t racist?

      He was deliberately being provocative with the point that a competent president, even a white one, is better than an incompetent president, even if its a black one.

      • Kevin Jackson

        He was deliberately being asinine. Why make the distinction that the only competent President would be a white Republican man? I read the article. Actually a couple of times. By no means is anything outlined in this article meant to make us think that competency could be found in anything but a white male. When the US is in the position that it is in at this very point in time, because of the personal musings of idiots who have no other interest but their own political standing? When you have Ted Cruz and John Bonehead choosing to make political hay by maintaining only their own political well being while hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer through this government shutdown that could have easily been avoided by putting the well being of the majority over the misguided desires of a few under informed soles? I know what is going on, I pull my information from various sources who have both partisan and non-partisan points of view. As an Independent, I don’t have a specific party leaning, but I do know what reality looks like. Unfortunately, there are individuals such as yourself who think that they know, but don’t really want to.
        This President has had to deal with a RECORD amount of disrespect from his opposition. He was elected twice by huge majorities and still has to deal with the handful of jackasses who believe that they are entitled to some sort of concessions because they want them, not necessarily because they have proved that their positions merit them. I don’t always agree with his policies. I don’t always agree with positions on a few social subjects, but to say that he isn’t competent is just not true. It borders on stupidity. More than anything, it gives me the sinking feeling that there will never be a time when the majority will be allowed to do what is best for this country.

  • Sharon Bruemmer

    I am sorry, but I have to disagree. We do not need a white, conservative president; we simply need a conservative president. Kevin, I would be hard put to believe that you would cry “racial foul” every time another person disagreed with your political position. Allen West, does he think that everyone who disagrees with him does so out of racial bias? I don’t think so. I could go on and on, but I believe that I have made my point. Liberals use the racial card to try and quiet dissent, but they are not stupid; they know that what they are saying is disingenuous. Race is not the point here and it has not been for quite a few years. Give me a conservative in the White House, and I am not going to care what color his or her skin is, and I don’t believe that you will care either.

        I am with you on that one. I read his book and have to admit to being truly impressed. The beating he would take from the liberals would be monumental though; I just do not know if he would want to take on the fight. And, it would be a fight, a bare knuckles fight to the death, if history is instructive.

    • Jeremy Brown

      Look at what they did to Herman Cain. He was a great candidate.

      The left-hand of politics will stop at nothing to keep a black or a woman from holding the Presidency or Vice-Presidency as a conservative Republican or Libertarian.

      I’m not defending anything that any of these candidates may have done – but you can see how the left, and their media arm, treat black conservative candidates.

      This misses the whole point of the article. The point is that we must be able to criticize any President of any color for their stupid policy choices without ever being called a racist, bigot, etc. And if that can’t happen with a black liberal President – when he has bonehead policies – then we should go to a white conservative President because he is fair game to be criticized for what he says and does.

      That was the entire point of the article.

      We need our entire political and media base to treat a black liberal President (or a woman, or any other minority group) and allow them to be treated, just like any white conservative President – complete with questioning, criticism, utmost scrutiny, satire and even ridicule.

      I have respect for the office, so I think the last two often go too far – but this President and any more that we elect that are like him – must be on the same playing field for treatment as Bush, Reagan, Nixon, etc.

      • Sharon Bruemmer

        Believe me, I understood what Kevin was saying perfectly well, and I simply disagreed with the concept that this could only be accomplished by electing another white president. Of course, liberals treat black conservatives like the traitors they believe them to be. However, the conservatives–of any color–understand that criticism is not a matter of racial bias (in most cases, as we cannot allow ourselves to forget that actual racial discrimination does exist), and are, therefore, able to engage in debate without charging anyone with the crime of racism. Voila, my conclusion that what we need is a conservative, but need not consider race a factor.

      • delahaya

        Exactly. The LEFT will stop at nothing to not just defeat, but to personally destroy, black conservatives. They are too dangerous to be left to speak and run for office. Their very existence shatters liberal myths. I once ran a campaign for perhaps the best candidate I ever worked with (years ago, quit that a long time ago). He was squeaky clean, truly believed in America, worked hard, had a beautiful wife and kids. He was also black, and the liberals went absolutely nuts. It was awful. He was attacked day and night, and not just verbally. Our campain workers were followed and physically harassed. His children were messed with. Atrocious, racist epithets were scrawled on his cars and his home. The police would do nothing because the mayor was a Democrat who just dismissed it all as our imagination. When presented with proof, he said we made it up ourselves. Our candidate started looking nervous, which made him look like he wasn’t confident. His polls fell and he lost, but just barely. It was a lesson learned unfortunately. All other black candidates withdrew from nomination inside the party. The very next year, the local Democrat head crowed about how “racist” the GOP was and how we had no black officeholders in the county. Sickening.

    The left will destroy any black or female conservative candidate. They cannot and will not allow the racist/sexist illusion to be undermined. It is the basis for their control.

    White people score higher on tests because they “CHEAT”! Remember, they create, mark, and score these tests. They typically steal and sell these tests in their neighborhoods to give themselves a heads up. Anyone who works in government or corporate America knows that many whites in higher supervisory positions have great difficulty reading anything over one sentence. In addition, some supposely white college and high graduates cannot read at all.
    Many whites know the answers to most tests before they enter the room to take a test because they have practiced on the actual stolen tests before they took them.
    This idea of tests being actually handled
    and previewed is one factor that has to
    be examined in the equation before
    anyone can say the educational playing
    field is actually even.
    Cheating gives whites a differential advantage in the competition for competitive positions in schools and work. Therefore, the actual validity of the handling of these tests are
    questionable. Maybe, the government
    will have to handle and manage these
    tests so we can get an accurate clarification as to how all groups are performing without the variable of
    “Cheating”.

    • Thomas Johnson

      Sure, give it to the govt as they are soooooo trustworthy. So your theory is that it’s a huge white conspiracy that blacks do not score as well on tests of any kind? I think someone needs a reality check.

    • betterfredthandead

      Both Black and White People that get high grade do not need to cheat simply because they are not stupid…unlike most of ya’ll on this blog…

      Are you kidding? Are you saying that Whites are the ones with enough intelligence to cheat and win? Did you see the last two elections that were fraught with overt fraud and deceit? Or Holder who always upholds the Constitution? If Whites were so smart, there would be more of them on welfare than Blacks! Blacks aren;t working and live a fine life, they are the smart ones!

      • Jeremy Brown

        This is also pretty ignorant. I know plenty of blacks who work pretty darn hard to support their families.

        Are you just trolling?

    • ChildofELOHIM

      A friend of mine, who was white and a fraternity member, told me how various frats over the years; decades; and scores had managed to “collect” a numerous and a wide variety of exams! His frat was very confident that they had, at least, one copy of every test that had ever been given on that campus!!

      This gentleman was extremely intelligent!!! I can’t ever remember any other human being that could read and digest an entire 300-400 page book in a day; again, digest that material; and ace the exam the next day!!!!

      Would this be cheating?! I don’t believe so! These are tests that the “brothers” had collected for their posterity as… study aids!! So, would frats have something of an unfair advantage over non-frat members… no matter what race?!

      Apparently, they do!! Should colleges and universities do something like providing “practice” exams to level the playing field??!! Of course, all schools should place a series of practice exams in that school’s library for every subject to… level the playing field!!

      Moreover, with the advent of copy machines; printers; and scanners… the frats are not going to give-up their much prized “inheritance”! So, it is up to each school to level the playing field!! Every student should have as equal opportunity as possible to obtain an ‘A’ grade as the next individual, period!!!

      However, I certainly would not call ‘cheating” a function of anyone’s skin color! It is not and in no way a logical conclusion!! Moreover, the WORD of GOD has made it clear that GOD acknowledges that HE has made only “one” [1] race and that is the… human race!!

      And that is why racism on the part of anyone is so tragic; and moreover, it does carry a ‘death penalty!!! If anyone does not believe that, they are more than welcome, most sadly, to be one of the numerous “test” cases in the Day of CHRIST!!

      • jayleigh

        But, the problem with that is, teachers teach to the test and students study to the test, and thus, no critical thinking happens. i had some outstanding college professors who only allowed 1/4 of the total grade to be from tests because they knew that they would be inclined to teach to the test and that kind of “passing the previous tests” around would happen. Not much actual measurement of knowledge garnered in class is accomplished. My major professor preferred giving us a lot of writing assignments. Of course, math majors don’t lend themselves really to that style of grading. But other courses do, and they show whether a student is using critical thinking, problem solving, and rational ideas in order to come up with a premise and follow it through with a body of evidence and a logical conclusion. so, colleges in a lot of disciplines are simply diploma mills and not bastions of education.

      • delahaya

        Yeah, if the teacher never ever changes a test, that would be a problem. But….

    • Jeremy Brown

      This post makes you sound terribly misinformed at best.

      My black friend and I both are very intelligent, both did well academically, and both of us aced all of our tests. Neither of us cheated – and cheating has nothing to do with race. I know plenty of cheaters of all colors. That’s just plain ignorant.

      The conspiracy theory, is lame, tired, beat, and false.

      Your criticism and assumptions about any white people in power or who have an education is way off-base and can only serve to hinder you. And it also give you an easy cop-out for yourself and anyone else you identify with if you or they experience failure or conflict of any kind. I reject your statements and the flawed logic you use to conclude these things.

      I’ll give you that racism exists, and has some pretty negative consequences. What you’re saying here is rubbish.

      Btw – you said “In addition, some supposely white college and high graduates cannot read at all.”

      Are they supposedly white? Hmmm…are they “supposedly” graduates? If they have a diploma and are white – then they are white high school and college graduates.

      Can that happen? Absolutely, and it’s pitiful. Remember that it’s the Democrats and the Department of Education that have absolutely destroyed our education system in America. Prior to the DOE, America was exceptional in terms of education. After the DOE, America has been on a constant downward slide. That’s not coincidence. It’s been going on way too long for that my friend.

      However, I know a black high school graduate who couldn’t read when he graduated – and it caused him to eventually fail in college. In high school he learned to get teachers to do much of his work for him without realizing it, and he got many other students to do his homework for him because he happened to be a very good football player, and at least an average basketball player and that was a big deal in our school at the time. I think it was tragic – moreso for him than for anyone else. He was robbed, and yet he participated in it himself too. He’s obviously a fairly bright man – but just lacked the basic skills.

      Haven’t seem him to know if that’s changed in the past few years. I hope it has for his sake.

      That being said – you whole theory here can be summed up in one word – bupkis.

This president has had more crap to deal with than any other i can think of in modern history, and then to have to work w/a bunch of immature, overpaid, imbeciles, whose modis operandi has been to block this Presidency at every turn as a means to delegitimize his legacy and if they could impeach him IS (in the words of my grams) more than a notion.

    I criticize the President all the time. Obama has been a terrible president. And I have friends from across the political spectrum/plane. But I never have been accused of being a racist. Racism is racism, politics is politics, and this essay is offensive.

    • Marley3

      In what ways do you criticize the President

      • hawstom

        I say things like:
        I like Obama, but he has been a big disappointment as a president. Cash for Clunkers, Guantanamo Bay still open, Bombing of Libya, failure to bring the troops home, failure to balance the budget. He’s certainly no better than Bush, and leaves me wondering how Romney would have done, as scary as the Romney campaign was.

        I’m not interested in pushing any of those criticisms, but those are the kind of things I have said and say. I always say that I am very happy we have come to the point of electing a black president, and that I like Obama a lot.

        • hiendurance

          Cash for clunkers was a huge boost for the economy in the recession and it also had a modest impact on pollution by ridding the roads of many 20th century oil burners!

          • A concerned american

            And it cost the taxpayers a bundle-those hat work of course.

        • Jeremy Brown

          Cash for Clunkers did nothing but drive up the price of used vehicles, thus hurting the working poor and middle class. It didn’t help the environment btw. The only people it really helped significantly were the major automobile manufacturers. And they also were the beneficiaries of bailouts.

          Obama has been a horrible President for sure. However, his biggest failures have been pushing Obamacare, a disgustingly fierce and extremist agenda when it comes to abortion, pushing forward the Arab Spring and getting in way over his head in the Middle East, and many other similar policies.

          The failure to balance the budget is a big deal too of course!

          I find this President to be a disgrace. I don’t mind those who criticize George W. Bush. they are right on some things.

          And I’m often with those who criticized Bill Clinton. He was a much worse President than most people realize. And he started some of the mess we found ourselves in in the mid-2000s.

          Reagan has been the best President that we’ve had since the World War I era, if not since Lincoln.

            I don’t think there is any need to pile on. My whole point is that there is a respectful way to disagree with the president without being called a racist or feeling nostalgic for the freedom of expression of former days when the president looked a little more like me.

          • Jeremy Brown

            I don’t want to pile on either. I would like you to answer one question though, and I really could care less about the skin color of this or any past President.

            My question is this: Why shouldn’t people be nostalgic for the freedom of expression that is their Constitutional and God-given right?

            That freedom should exist regardless of color. So why shouldn’t people be nostalgic for that?

          • hawstom

            Of course we never are free from being called on the carpet unless we live in an echo chamber. We can be nostalgic for the echo chamber, but I’m not sure I’m prepared to say that we should be nostalgic for it. We are as free as ever to say what we want.

          • Jeremy Brown

            Who is talking about an echo chamber? I feel like I’m talking to a wall – and I’m not trying to be offensive saying that.

            A person criticizing this, or any other black or minority President of the U.S., is NOT a racist and should NOT be called one – based solely on their criticism of the President. Further, it should not be assumed that the motives are racist – and that unless it is blatant – the “race card” should not be played, period.

            That has nothing to do with an echo chamber. Debates and discussions should be held by intelligently presenting facts/data, values and philosophies in a systematic, self-controlled and level-headed manner. They should not be emotional and contain name calling such as “bigot” and “racist” or even “uncle Tom”. Sheesh man, that’s ludicrous to say that if you don’t have that then you must be in an echo chamber, which is what your post implies.

            Of course we should be called on the carpet. However, so should Barack Obama. And until someone says something overtly racist – then folks on the left, white or black or any other group, should simply debate the facts and stop crying “racism” and playing that card.

            That is the single greatest reason why we don’t normally make progress in this country with race relations or politics – and why when we do it is minimal.

            In my personal opinion – except for in blatant cases such as the use of the “N-word” or some other intentional slur – that card shouldn’t even be put in the deck to be played.

          • hawstom

            Ditto, ditto, ditto. Yes. Except for your last 2+ paragraphs, I totally agree with you. And I would say that, in my experience, I have that freedom to criticize without being called a racist. And I think that the reason I have it is I do not deny the existence of racism, and I do not deny the existence of my own privilege as a tall, white, male with two married, healthy, loving parents and a supportive kin group.

            I can grant that the yearning for a “white Republican president” may not intentionally be motivated by antagonism for non-privileged people. I also can grant that the conditions being longed for, most certainly unwittingly rather than maliciously, are conditions of oppression and regression.

            We long for a time and a condition that was, for us in our privilege, Camelot. It is the story of Gone With The Wind. It is the story of Scarlett O’Hara. Gone. Gone. Gone with the Wind. The happy, free, and prosperous days are gone.

    • jayleigh

      Not really sure what you mean, Otis. The POTUS is NOT a ruler. The US-C gives the most power to the people, not to Congress or the POTUS. The American form of government is a “representative” form of government which means that when we send our Congress-folk to DC, they are supposed to do the will of their constituents. The three branches of the government are, the Executive, the Legislative (Congress) and the Judicial. The Judicial branch does NOT make law; it’s function is to make certain that any law enacted by Congress passes the test of constitutionality. The Executive is NOT supposed to make law – that is not his/her province. He/she is supposed to lead in policy and set the tone for harmony between the houses, NOT create a constant boxing match between them. The POTUS should NOT be creating warfare between the House and the Senate! He is NOT our supreme ruler with whom we must always agree. He is our servant, not our BOSS, and that is true for Congress – the reason they come back to their home states on “recess” is not to go on vacation, it is to hold meetings at various locations in the state to hear the will of the people. WE hold the most power, NOT the elite of D.C. who think they can legislate us out of our income, foist programs and rules and regs on us that are anathema to us, and violate the US-C with these laws! Career politicians get very egotistical and think they “know what’s best for their kiddies back home.” Well, we are not children, we are the ruling class, only we seem to have forgotten that in the last 40 years, and we’ve pretty much allowed DC to tell US what to do. Yep, if you read the writings of our Founding Fathers, you will find that they certainly hoped that the PEOPLE would be the guardians of liberty and not become complacent and allow the pack in the government to legislate us out of our freedom. That, they considered, would be tyranny!

      Otis, you said, “I am sorry but if I am going to dislike someone it is going to be for a decision they made, and the last time I checked there is bo person in this world that chose their race or ethnicity!!”

      Which is exactly the message (as a whole) of the article (if you move past the sarcasm/irony? of the title) because it seems like many, many people “hear” racism in any criticism of or disagreement with this administration (rather like the “racism” heard here, More Ridiculous than Racial). Unlike in previous years when presidents were criticized unmercifully by anyone and everyone without being called racist themselves.

      • Otis Williams

        Actually that isn’t true we the African-American where called prejudice when we made comments!!! But the issue is it shouldn’t matter if the president is black, white, male, or female, the respect should be the same all he way across the board and to say a Caucasian president is “AMERICAN” IS A RACIST COMMENT!!!!! It shows that in today’s world people still don’t have the liberty of being judged by the content of their character and not the color of our skin!!!! I myself don’t like the whole race card thing but the reality is it still exist!!!! I hear car doors lock, I see women clutch their purses but I ignore the evident because I am a pastor whom preaches love all and preach love your enemies!!! But until you walk in a person’s shoes you never know exactly what one may see that causes hem to feel the way they feel!!! It is racist and had it been said that a black president is American the site would have been flooded with a million racist comments!!!!!

        • Justin_Igger

          Car doors lock, women clutch their purses around n1ggers, because you n1ggers are highly, invariably, statistically most likely to be VIOLENT CRIMINALS.
          I have said it before, and I’ll say it again to you worthless apes: if you want the world to stop treating you like and calling you n1ggers, then you must FIRST and FOREMOST stop living and behaving like n1ggers. You do not get to receive a pass on being called out as the n1ggers you are, until you stop behaving like the n1gggers you are.

          The burden is on YOU to stop being and behaving like n1ggers, not for us to stop calling you out on it and treating you accordingly. That is NOT how society works.

          You n1ggers better damn well get starte; if you haven’t already noticed, ALL human beings, not just Whites, but hispanics, Asians, ALL races of human beings grow incessantly tired of your constant n1ggerwhines and hands out for more free stuff, as well as your rampant n1gger crime. You all have a LOT of work to do to shed the public view and opinion that you n1ggers have earned, you better damn well get started. I say this because, now you are getting just a taste of how human beings are responding to your n1gger behavior: we’re going out, buying guns, and hoping, praying that one of you are foolish enough to attack us. That’s the point it has come to. And you wretched n1ggers have NO ONE to blame but your worthless selves.

          I see black thugs on the street act menacing to passerbys for laughs. I see blacks slow down while walking across the street just to make me wait. . I see wide black women in stores walking very slowly down the aisle so I can’t get anywhere. I see black servers in cafeterias give me small portions but load up their black friends plates. I see the break room at work is always almost 100% black, even though the office may be 15%. I see that my office is basically 100% white after 5 pm or before 8 am. I see that my black colleagues seem to always up all their leave every year, including sick leave, then complain when they don’t get promoted. I could go on. These are real experiences, not prejudice. I am simply stating what I’ve observed.

            Really Otis? You seem pretty charged up to me. Your post shows you notice it quite acutely. I just reflected your post back to you and you didn’t catch it. Kind of funny, huh?

    “At least if we had a white president, black people might have a shot of regaining a modicum of respect.” Taken from an article by Kevin Jackson.

    Is the above statement one of which that could be characterized as “self-hatred”

    • Justin_Igger

      By the actions currently of n1ggers nationwide, do you actually, truthfully believe that it is respect that these n1ggers are demanding and threatening to riot for?
      No, it is because their precious, life-essential EBT cards were cut off for just a few HOURS. This shows the priority of the n1gger.

    • delahaya

      No. He’s saying having a totally incompetent President who’s black, and how ran as a black man, is not a good example.

  • curchel@yahoo.con

    This is the most ignorant article I have ever read.

    • Max Jean-guillaume

      I completely agree!

  • curchel@yahoo.con

    I want a black woman president. That makes american too

    • Justin_Igger

      That would be the end of America as we know it, for sure. It couldn’t possibly get any worse or dumbed down than that.

    Damn Kevin! You’ve really gone with the wind this time. I thought Herman Cain and Allen West were the kings of Uncle Toms but you make them look like H. Rap Brown.

    YOU are one confused, self-deprecating person. You not only make black people look horrible, you make us conservatives look just as bad.

    • Justin_Igger

      N1ggers do not need the help of anyone else to make n1ggers look horrible on a global scale. You unevolved apes do a perfectly fine job of that, all on your own.

  • mscognizance

    You’re blaming this stuff on this president? He didn’t crash the economy. His party didn’t refuse jobs’ bills. He isn’t fighting against affordable health care for millions. He didn’t turn down putting people to work on fixing the country’s infrastructure. He didn’t put up pictures of his wife and himself looking like a pimp and his whore. Democrats are not parading around with Confederate flags and signs against N…..s. Republicans did that crap. The Republican Party used to be worthwhile; anyone, of any color, voting Republican now, needs an examination by a psychiatrist.

    • chinadoll81

      Don’t get upset….. most of them still think the world is flat even though there is tons of evidence to prove it’s not. If you keep telling lies for so long you soon or later will convince yourself that it is the truth. Republicans always forget what they do to the United State let alone the world but let someone else come in and fix your mistakes while exposing who you really are and now is the end of humanity and because things aren’t going the way you think they should because for some odd reason you think you entitled you wanna make the rest of the world suffer. Republicans are nothing but believe that every round up and got jobs in politics. Because after all what does the bully do beat you up torture you until he gets his way and when he does he’s on to someone else

      • mscognizance

        You are right. I just don’t like to see people bullied.

        • chinadoll81

          Well you know a bully the bigger they are the harder they fall and while we’re on the subject of bullies when’s the last time you heard from the last President. Seems like he went and found a cave in heating and that he couldn’t find bin Laden in. The irony is just too much not to laugh it

          • mscognizance

            He has been in the news. He has taken up oil painting; isn’t that precious? Also he had an operation to clear his clogged arteries….no news about clearing his brain yet.

    • delahaya

      Wow, five years later and still blaming others. Look up the stats – Under Obama we have high homelessness, high poverty, high unemployment, high food stamp dependency, high deficits, low labor participation, and so on – plus all the scandals. These are facts you can look up. Bush didn’t do it. Things may not have been great under Bush, but they were much better than now under Obama. Are you saying Bush figured out a way to keep things okay while he was president, but then just explode badly on Obama – who he didn’t even know would run for President at the time? Wow., jsut wow.

  • WFAISON

    Let them keep writing we need to know what they think!! “Keep Your Friends Close and Your Enemies Closer” the old saying goes….. You not only need to read what people put on paper or the internet, you need to see who’s in lock-step with that persons views by reading their comments. After you’ve done that you know where they stand, ignorance can hit you from any direction, so your job is to study what you read or hear, than use your own common sense to figure out where you personally stand.
    I have friends who belong to all 3 of the 2 parties, they are my personal studies, and to my additional benefit I have internet friends whom are global that I communicate with on weekly bases. You would be surprised at what my international friends think of the “Tea Party” faction of the american government, and yes they are concerned about the government shutdown, because it has directly effected their economies already just because we’re close to it!
    RACISM runs deep over here in America the World knows it, even most people here wonder openly why the GOP hates our current President so much, that they’ll “burn down” America before they will allow him to achieve anything! Thank You Sen. Mitch McConnell!

    I understand that African Americans represent only 14% or-less of the population who helped elect and re-elect our president, so where did the other 80+ % of the presidents votes come from?
    Overall people are good for the most-part, and generally will vote their conscious once they get behind the curtain, and apply to the ballot whats best for them and their family regardless to what comes out of their mouths…….. So I say let them talk, write, and publish so the world can identify them for whom they are, and who chooses to publicly identify & associate with them as they try to defend their crazy self centered ideas & stories.

    • Justin_Igger

      Most of the modern world hates n1ggers. This is not racism, this is simply human nature. We choose not to live around other dangerous animals, as well. Common sense prevails.

    • delahaya

      It is time for blacks to quit asking what the country can do for them, but start asking what they can do for our country. It is a global world and we are in competition economically with the EU, Russia, China, India, etc. We no longer can afford excuses and ignorance and crime and welfare babies. Black American needs to shut up and clean up its act. The statistics are appalling. You guys and gals are literally dragging your country down! Stop it! Free yourselves from the Democrat plantation! Voting Democrat has done absolutely NOTHING to advance your race in the United States. Open your minds, quit the excuses, and produce! Be productive and you will get all the respect you crave.

  • Clavell Jackson

    Reagan was a disaster for the black community. His war on drugs locked up numerous black men, and under him crack was allowed to flood black hoods. You article and your opinions are full of crap. And no most liberal blacks are not racists. You are an apologist for race baiters like Glenn Beck.

        Yeah, the media stirring up that White Hispanic against a Black kid made fools of a lot of us, including the president….me too. Then I saw a photo of Z’s mother at the trial…she was obviously not White. Turns out Z is technically Black. 1/8 would make him a slave in the old South; The grandmother that helped raise him is half Black. Z’s mom is Peruvian Indian, Black and Hispanic….dad is Jewish.

        Now America sees all of the little gangsta wannbe thug n1ggers as little treyboons, and now we are ALL George Zimmerman. Gun salves skyrocketed over 400% as soon as the n1gger took office, and you cannot buy guns with food stamps, so we all know what this means.

        America is not headed towards a race war, America is IN a race war, and the n1ggers initiated it by attacking innocent Whites in record numbers. Now it’s our turn.

        If any n1gger attacks you, you can then shoot that n1gger dead and be completely in the clear, legally and civilly speaking. And this does NOT require Stand Your Ground laws in effect in your state; all of America has basic self defense laws.

        One way or the other, the n1ggers have simply gotta go. The question is, do you want to be part of the problem, or part of the solution?

        • Nice Guy

          I’m neither part of the problem nor part of the solution, since I don’t live in America. And although you may hate black people, for good reason concerning a large number of them, to call them names on a Disqus forum is, in my opinion, just bad form and needlessly incendiary. You might get in trouble for your posts. Have a lovely day! :)

        • delahaya

          Again, Justin, not helpful.

      “His war on drugs locked up numerous black men”
      This would be precisely why Reagan was considered so successful.

    • delahaya

      Seriously, are you really this ignorant? Black have lower unemployment under Reagan and Bush than Obama. That’s simply fact. They have lower poverty rates also. Its like you’re so brainwashed you can’t even think, you just parrot nonsense.

  • Rocky Ford

    The trouble with this guy, and people like him, they actually believe their own crap, he has right to say whatever he want’s to and have his opinion. But at the end of day he’s still like all the rest of us who are black in this country, he’s still is 3 times more likely to be stopped by the police for “no reason” other then being black, while visiting New York he’ll still have trouble with getting a Taxi, and etc. Mr. Jackson is nothing new he’s still is the same ole so-called integrated black person, who fails to recognize that “racism” is not a black invention in this country, and even during the Nazi rule in Germany you had Jewish people, and so-called leader that agreed with Hitler, they also were strange people. Let us all not make any mistake’s about it, for this man to give Ronald Reagan any credit for helping black community let alone this nations poor, is totally a big lie, and not a “little white one”, and for him to quote a study done by Joseph Perkins which is riddle with blatant fibercations, and hold’s no true what soever to actual history is pitiful, and self severing suited to his on purpose of American Capitalism, and he is another one that pop’s out of the closet’s of diluted intellectual fantasy’s. Also Mr. Jackson fails to recognize another historical truth, the so-called “tea party”, were never abolitionist, and they would and did throw a lot of black bodies in the same bay along with the tea.

    • SouthernSmoke88

      i would even venture to say he actually does not believe anything he just typed.. this is strictly for hits! im hoping it works or he gets those white die hard fans that he’s looking to bamboozle cause his credibility just shot right out the door with any of us “colored” folk lol

      And don’t forget, 8 times more likely to commit a violent felonious crime, 12-13 times more likely to have the AIDS virus, 58% more likely to be on some form of government assistance, and around 80% more likely to have an IQ that categorizes him as officially mentally retarded when held to human standards.
      Amazing how some always forget the most important stats about n1ggers.

      • Rocky Ford

        Yeah, I have a total understanding of how you feel sir, that’s why I used “etc”, although I wont argue your stat’s I will simply agree with them all, but you must remember Justin, that a N1gger is a white man’s product and invention so “No surprises”, so why sound so critical aren’t you happy with your product? So I’m happy to report that I don’t identify myself as a N1gger, do you?

    • delahaya

      So sad. The numbers are there. Black Americans do better under Republican presidents than Democrat presidents, and Obama has been the worst of all (maybe his white half is racist?). Look up the numbers if you have the guts.

      • Rocky Ford

        I not only have the courage to look them up, I also have enough courage to do the same as you do, I wake up with energy in enthusiasm and face my day, only to be greeted by people like you who don’t recognized are appreciate my participation in this society. I also like you pay those ridiculous taxes, and know toilet paper doesn’t spool off my roll, and wipe my behind ether. And unlike you I have been the victim of racial profiling, and since I’m also in my 50’s I’ve personally have seen and felt an heard how racist effected my life, my oldest brother was murder, for simply trying to go too college. My mother also had a brother who was pulled out of there home in east Texas and lynched, because he wanted to sell apple, from the back of his wagon. So don’t you ever ask me to have the courage to look up number’s sir. I don’t care If a person is Republican, or Democrats because we are all suited to our own conscious, and it’s my conscious that disagree’s strongly with Mr. Jackson saying that we need a “White Republican President in the like’s of Ronald Reagan”, you see I remember his policies personally, and he’s so-called trickle down theory, never ever trickle down to me and other poor people, not only blacks. I also witness and heard the whole Iran/Contra trail, and when Oliver North stood up, and said that he thought using the the Ayatollah’s money was a “neat idea”, and we would also learn later that he fashion a deal “Drug’s for arm’s”, while Ronald Reagan and he’s first lady motto, are anthem was “Just Say No” while they through their CIA cohort’s pumped drug’s into all of America, to support a war that congress didn’t want or approve of, yes didn’t you know that Ronald Reagan was the author of the “Drive by”? People like you make me sick sir.

    He was blowing smoke up his butt on this one. No one said this President couldn’t be criticized if you didn’t like his policies. He knows full well the talk went in the racial hatred category even before he was elected. No President ever had to prove his citizenship before. I hated the Bush administration policies but I never made it personal to the man. I even liked and respected his wife and her FLOTUS agenda. Look at how they treat the First Family even the children. Yeah it’s all about this Presidents policies. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.

    • Xavier Hodge

      No president has ever had to prove his citizenship before! NOR his religion. Nor had there ever been a meeting THE NIGHT OF ELECTION on how to best obstruct a president! I TOTALLY agree with you. I hated BUSH’S policies. HATED HIS STUPIDITY! HATED HIS ABILITY TO BELIEVE HIS OWN LIES.. GO AFTER HUSSEIN WHEN BIN LADEN WAS THE REAL CRIMINAL! BUT LOVED HIS DAD, MOM and WIFE…. This article is ridiculous.

      • Kevin Jackson

        Every president has to prove his citizenship. Up to now, none has been so cloaked in secrecy. Pull your head out of your butt…it smells up there.

      • delahaya

        Xavier,

        Respond to this once and for all, don’t hem or haw. Be a man and face it. Did blacks have lower unemployment under Reagan or Obama? Under Bush or Obama? Look it up if you want. Now, how many troops were killed in Afghanistan under Bush’s 8 years versus Obama’s four years (now 5)? Was black poverty higher under Obama or Reagan, Bush or Obama? Is homelessness higher now under Obama than it was under Reagan (when the media talked about it incessantly). And so on…fact….numbers…it’s not just my opinion.

    • Kevin Jackson

      Keep buying your lies, Gordona. You know the truth.

    • Justin_Igger

      We demanded he prove his citizenship (which he never did, of course), because we knew better. A kenyan muslim n1gger has no business in any American political office, let alone the office of president. All those who enabled this atrocity to take place are guilty of treason.

  • chinadoll81

      • chinadoll81

        who ever wrote this article would be wanting to go tell the master that the slaves are running away from misery because he might get a extra biscuit instead of getting his things in order to run as well. if you didn’t know anything besides what they told you why else would you think misery is paradise. I’m Asian and even watched eyes on the prize and probably cried more tears in a black person when Barack Obama was elected president because from race of people(in which we all do…i know the history of man an where we all originated) to come from misery to dominate is something unbelievable and unseen

        • Justin_Igger

          As I am sure you very well know, Asians (Chinese for the most part, I believe) were also slaves in America’s past. They were put to work building America’s railway system, while the inept n1ggers picked cotton and did household chores.
          Look at them all now. Asians are simply excelling at all things in America. Asians are often successful business owners, who in just a few generations taught themselves fluent English, became successful, productive citizens, and get their way into fine colleges and earn Master’s Degrees without the help of affirmative action. Never once have I ever heard of an Asian using past slavery in America as blackmail for reparations and free handouts.

          Now, look at the n1ggers. The exact opposite of everything I just mentioned about Asians in America today. Complete social, intellectual, academic, mental, emotional, and financial failures through and through. Cries of racism echo throughout the ghettos. Despite all of us having to pay taxes to feed, clothe, and shelter the worthless apes, they still plague our entire country with crime, the likes of which any n1gger free nation has never seen, and never will.

          It is clear exactly what the problem is here, right now, today in America.

          America’s main problem, it’s cancer that is destroying it from within, is n1gger.s This is clear. What is not so clear however, is what to do about it. One thing is undeniable, though. It has been proven without a shadow of a doubt at this point that we can ever force n1ggers to evolve into being able to be productive people in any modern civilized human society, because they are simply not fully evolved human beings.

          • chinadoll81

            Awww says the sad little grace is gas sitting in the corner because he realizes really is no longer lmao! Every race you name has dominated you for instance Chinese Asians were smarter than you and you wish you could reach you on that level so you say as far as African Americans they dominated everything that you’ve tried to put in their way and now dominating your women they have your women flocking to them so what does that say about you and the one I like the most if they are that stupid then what are you because you don’t have control anymore

            The irony of somebody telling somebody where they need to go even though they’re from another country! Are you starting to understand why so many of us other races thank you white people are the dumbest people of us all or do I need to go on porn that you’re silly facts why don’t we all leave American and give the Indians back their land but looks like they outsmarted you as well because they have casinos. You took their land now they’re taking your hard earned money while getting you and toxicated, lol! ! oh the irony

      • chinadoll81

        Sure did. He’s under that oj Simpson and that tiger woods trance. Somebody sucked him stupid making him feel like a man wow all alone uplifting them and downing himself but so caught up in the mix he’s too stupid to realize it. As stupid as this may sound, I feel as though the author of this article during slavery would feel special because his skin was light versus the dark skinned slave working in the field but too stupid to realize a slave is a slave and yet come to terms with it you’re the product of the white man looking at a dark skinned woman in finding some beauty in her and he impregnated her with his seed willing or unwillingly. That’s why I laugh when I hear light skin black talk about the beautiful dark skinned black people. Because they would not be if somebody didn’t find the original woman beautiful. Every race known to man has had a child with a dark skinned black woman resulting in what we today call neew races .you have to be a fool to down your reason for being. Like the author of this article.

    • Nice Guy

      Your black ghetto certainly doesn’t care for you (assuming you’re black and you live in the ghetto — if you don’t, then the “you” is a general “you”).

    • Jeremy Brown

      You would be shocked to know that for decades it was exclusively the Republican Party that fought for the rights and freedoms of African-Americans.

      You would be shocked to know that the Republican Party was created by their position on slavery being immoral and degrading. And probably you would be equally shocked to know that the Republican Party in many states was formed almost entirely of black men.

      You may even be shocked to know that the Democrats didn’t give a rip about the African-American voting block until John F. Kennedy realized that this segment of voters would either lose him or win him his Presidency. He met with Martin Luther King Jr. to discuss getting the influence of the African-American community behind him instead of the Republicans. And to top it off Kennedy supported a bill to push civil rights for African-Americans that was introduced originally by a Republican.

      These are all facts.

      Did you know that the KKK came about to dissaude the influence of the Republican party, and stop the elections of black candidates in southern states that had very high African-American populations? It’s true.

      Think about it.

      • Ken

        Actually, Jeremy, many Black people know the Republicans positions in the past. What is different now is their positions on many issues affecting the Black community. And what we realize is that the hatred the Republican party has exhibited is directly related to the race of a Black president. When George Bush refused the Obama family access to the Blair House residence which was tradition in Washington. That was a HUGE change, and a signal to the rest of the Republican party to begin the hate rage. Personally, I voted Republican for years (in my youth), but noticed a change towards hate. And, reference to the KKK’s actions is not as convincing as one would hope to sway an opinion.

        • Justin_Igger

          N1ggers always want to remind everyone of the distant past when it comes to slavery, but yet they simply and conveniently forget about it when referring to the Republican party?
          N1ggers are completely biased and hypocritical and most certainly do not deserve nor have they earned any attention, pity, or praise.

        • Jeremy Brown

          Sorry Ken – I’m not going to sit and pull up KKK material just to prove the point that over the course of history the party that has overwhelmingly represented hate towards African-Americans is indeed the Democrats. That has been clearly laid out by others. For anyone that doesn’t have their nose planted to MSNBC, they can and probably are willing to do the research themselves.

          That being said I see no hatred coming from Republicans. I keep hearing this allegation, and have yet to see it.

          You simply cannot assume that every criticism, perceived slight, or anything else automatically must be because of a person’s skin color if they are a minority. That’s wrong, it is ludicrous, and it is completely counterproductive.

          If you can’t point out overt racism, and prove that it is clearly racially motivated – without there being any other legitimate and plausible reason for the action/statement – then you have no business crying “racism”, “hatred” or “bigotry”. that’s just plain foolishness!

          I reject your assessment of the situation with Bush and Obama. And I further reject your ludicrous assessment of the perceived effect you think it had on other Republicans. I still don’t see the hatred and racism Ken.

          I’ve been at times disillusioned with the party, but could never in good conscience vote liberal or Democrat. I haven’t seen a worthwhile candidate come from that end of the spectrum since the 90s or before.

          We have people of all ethnicities in our party as elected leaders. And we have all ethnicities comprising our voting block.

          When you talk about issues that affect the Black community – you should be more specific.

          I see abortion – the murdering of millions of babies over the past 40 years – being targeted specifically at black neighborhoods – and overwhelmingly the culprits supporting this and pushing it are liberal Democrat politicians and the “progressive” media outlets such as MSNBC. That’s a crime against the Black community, and a heinous one. It’s been a proven fact that they target those neighborhoods to set up abortion clinics. The Republicans are the ones that are by and large coming to the aid of the Black community on this issue. Most of the Democrats are either opposed to the Black community or are silent on the issue for fear of reprisal. There may be some Republicans who contribute to this problem as well, but they’re in the minority.

          How about welfare issues – the government has set up a systematized institution to keep the Black community in low income areas (as well as other ethnicities in those same areas) from succeeding. Republicans try to reform these issues to create less of a burden on middle-class black families, to help transition people in the community from welfare to gainful employment, to eliminate the penalties for leaving this system, to eliminate the fraud that costs those that truly need the help, and to give opportunities for employment and self-employment that will engender self-sufficiency, self-pride, and the ability to support one’s own family.

          I see the Democrats just trying to add more programs to the system to keep African-Americans down, adding more red tape, and to use scare tactics to make African-American voters afraid that they will lose everything and be out of the streets. It’s a farce what the Democrats do with this.

          How about illegal immigration – more notably an issue in Latino communities near the Mexican border for sure – but a huge percentage of those that supported controlling illegal immigration are Latinos. They don’t want to worry about themselves and their families being kidnapped, killed, raped or involved in drugs. They see how much danger uncontrolled illegal immigration can pose. Republicans by and large want to help folks in areas like these to be able to let those in who wish to obey the laws and live here productively, and to keep us safe from those who wish to abuse our people, laws and our system. And again, money spent on illegals is taken from needy citizens and legals – white, black, Latino or Asian.

          When I see the liberals talking about this – they start shouting “racism”. Please. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

          And I see the Democrats trying to scare every person of a minority group into thinking that the mean-old-evil-Republicans want the police to card every brown or black man at the ice cream stand, keep him from voting Democrat, and to incarcerate or deport poor people who are just looking to make a living.

          Yeah – there are exceptions where you see an illegal come in and eventually do the right thing and become legal and be productive. You see a whole lot more that want to come over and sell drugs, kidnap people, rape or kill people. How in the world can it be racist to say “hey, let’s protect our citizens and those who want to immigrate here legally – by putting in common sense measures to discourage and reduce the illegals here”.

          Speaking of voting – I’ve heard the foolish rubbish that supposedly Republicans don’t want African-Americans to vote. That’s absurd. I reject it squarely – the Black Panthers have been guilty of trying to intimidate and discourage white people from voting – you hear no outcry about this – and I still do not say that all Democrats want to block white people from voting. Those kind of arguments are silly.

          The request in many areas to present an ID when voting or registering to vote – and bills surrounding how/when a person can register and subsequently vote – is based on controlling voter fraud not keeping any group of people from voting.

          I have to show my ID at the bank, at my town office, if I am ever stopped by police, and at countless other places. I have to show it when I apply for a job. This is common practice in the U.S. and has been for years – so it’s not onerous on the Black community or any other community to ask this when going to the voting booth.

          You see a lot of dirty and fraudulent tactics used primarily by liberal groups who are specifically trying to get college-age voters (of any color) to the voting booths, and don’t care if they are eligible to vote in that election or not. This happens a lot in state elections – and for elections for Senators and Representatives. A college student who is liberal and goes to school in a different state from where they live, is targeted to be encouraged to try and vote not only in their home state but also for the state they go to school in. This person is now given two votes instead of one – that’s fraudulent and it’s wrong. If Republicans were doing this – you’d be incensed and rightly so.

          This should be stopped.

          I see all kinds of ways that the Democrats marginalize the Black community, and even get the Black community to go along with it at times. i don’t see all that from the Republicans, but I’d be more than happy to see what you have to say if it’s constructive.

        • delahaya

          These urban myths that are so prominent among the black community – where do they start and where do they come from? I will tell you. Democrat political operatives – I used to room with one. They literally seed these myths (HIV was created in the lab to keep down black people, flouride in the water is to sterilize black people, etc.) It creates fear and just makes you look stupid. But it works for them. Open your mind. Take the “other pill” like in the Matrix. Free yourself.

      • chinadoll81

        You may be shocked to know that the formation of the Republican Party was mainly for whites to control the land and trade due to the fact of the lie that you will get 40 acres and a mule but once you got that man you had to pay to share crop and therefore you will never be out of debt that the real Republican Party or shall I say just another lie steam to make it seem as if you’re for America but you only for the pockets of people in your class and how dare you say African Americans didn’t give a rip about voting anything when many of them put their lives on the line and got lynched and hung Just to vote to have the right to be equal to youbut to say John F Kennedy is the reason black people got involved in voting is beyond dumb because plenty of them had already died before he was even conceived walking this earth

        • Jeremy Brown

          You obviously misread me and have misquoted me badly.

          I never said African Americans didn’t give a rip about voting. Period.

          And I never said JFK was the reason that black people got involved in voting.

          You totally missed what I was saying and read that into it. That’s the facts – sorry.

          DEMOCRATS didn’t give a rip about the African-Americans as voters until JFK decided he needed them. That’s a fact.

          I actually believe that blacks did even more than you are mentioning for their rights. And when they were freed from slavery, many educated themselves and ran for office – As REPUBLICANS!

          • delahaya

            Free blacks still do run as Republicans, the rest are still on the Democrat plantation.

        • Jeremy Brown

          By the way, every law that marginalized African-Americans from 1776 to the 1960’s – every single one – was brought about and supported by the Democratic Party.

          • chinadoll81

            I’m going to need you to look at those dates and realize both parties had racist people in them! what don’t you get? Since this article has been written so much has gone on in the world let’s move on shall we

        • delahaya

          Did you even go to school? Your ignorance is shocking.

          • chinadoll81

            Not only did I go to school I graduated your high school by the time I was 16 America’s ignorance is hilarious.

          • chinadoll81

            I’m very happy you asked me that! Yes and as a matter of fact I graduated at 16 it was hilarious because I was sitting next to a 20 year old my senior year that was still trying to cheat off me. I tried going to private schools only to learn that they paid for the education and we’re dumber than those in public schools. Does that answer your question or do you need to know a couple answers to a test

    • delahaya

      Facts and evidence can’t break through your “beliefs”, can they? The article speaks truth – Reagan was much better for blacks than Obama has been. It is there in black and white (no pun intended). Look up the numbers for yourself.

      • chinadoll81

        That statement alone had me laughing so hard I had to actually go get some tissue. If you think Ronald Reagan was better for blacks than Obama then I guess you think the world is still flat and David Duke is God. Instead of me looking at numbers you need to look in the mirror at yourself.

        • delahaya

          How about actually educating yourself? A black middle class did not even statistically exist until Reagan. Reagan, and later Bush, had lower black poverty and lower black unemployment than Obama does now. Get it yet? Maybe Obama’s white half is racist?!

          • chinadoll81

            no I think you should educate yourself because way before Reagan right after slavery blacks for the next 30 years had businesses and houses and ran their own town and governments until whites came and burned down it and took it from them why don’t you educate yourself. Reagan wasn’t even thought of during these times when blacks at their own governments right after slavery but as always when you see somebody prosper you want to take advantage of them and bring them down. as I stated before you Americans are so dumb you don’t even know your own history and you wonder why Chinese number one…. as the saying goes that you made it up here in America a mind is a terrible thing to waste maybe something to that. stop thinking you know everything and to you doing research. now go research what I stated and sit in a corner what a dunce cap on the next 48 hours

          • chinadoll81

            Actually I’m going to need you to go educate yourself because right after slavery for the next 30 to 40 years blacks ran and had their own businesses and government until whites came and burn them down and took their land from them so why I need you to educate yourself like I stated before you also need to learn that blacks were considered middle class and that was the reason they did what they did because even then just like now they believed blacks should not have a proper place in society. And speaking of Obama maybe that white half of him if part of him that could kill innocent kids without a care the black part of him the black part of him is destroying what you call a joyous world in other words a world what others have to suffer if you don’t have a certain type of bank account. Now go enjoy yourself by doing the research on the things that I’ve stated and when you’re done go sit in the corner with a dunce cap on for the next 48 hours. Its sad you Americans don’t know your history be yet have such an attitude when someone’s states the truth about it but as the saying go you Americans made up my mind is a terrible thing to waste. How is it that every country besides America knows the true history of America? I shouldn’t be surprised because you guys even said that you will never catch up to us in education. It’s sad because you know it and to know it and not do anything about it is beyond dumb

          • chinadoll81

            I see you didn’t write another essay after I told you to research the things I’ve stated. My quiet we get when we actually learn facts or were you to astonish to even do so? And by the way you probably think blacks are worse under Obama’s administration only due to the fact that during the Bush administration they hid so much of the truth from you

  • SilverKait

    • Kevin Jackson

      Thanks for the kudos! Liberals hate when I am right, which is damn near all the time! :)

    • OldNorthState

      You’re right… anybody that steps up and leads, embarrasses the rest of the losers… and they’re coming out of the woodwork on this one. Humorous… they don’t bother to read anything from any other conservative site, but they can’t stand it when a decent fellow, who happens to be black, takes a conservative stance… and they can’t stay away from this one.

  • SilverKait

    “In the pre-black president era, criticizing the president was simply the American thing to do. An exercise of one’s First Amendment right. Criticism had nothing to do with color, because there had never been a black president, or at least one whom people recognized as black.

    So to criticize the president meant that you didn’t like his policies.

    The election of a recognized black president was not supposed to change anything. In fact, it was supposed to (1) ease any perceived racial tensions, and (2) allow the government to focus on legislating without race. So America would be more free than ever to discuss the issues.”

    That, as the author points out, simply is not what happened.

    Disagree if you must with some of his literary devices, but the author points out the fact that in this post-black president era, criticizing the president rather than being seen as part and parcel of the American political system, is simply not the thing to do, unless one is ready to be called racist; or in the case of the author, “delusional,” ‘greedy’, and let’s not forget the common go-to pejorative for black Repubs “Uncle Tom”(specifically, inheritor of the title of “king” of the Uncle Toms).

    • Justin_Igger

      This is one of the many problems with dealing with n1ggers. To any n1gger, being a n1gger trumps any other flaw or quality that they have.
      To them, being a n1gger is subject numero uno, all the rest comes in at a distant second. Their subhumanity takes center stage in all dealings with them.

      If you read the posts before mine the problem starts to become clear. Hold the “ctrl” key and hit f on your keyboard. Type monkey, slave, coon or n1gger in the bar that pops up and count how many times they pop up. There are a bunch of people that disagree with Obamas policies, myself included but its hard to distinguish between the racists and those that have a legitimate qualm on the conservative side. So, while there are a ton of minorities whom have values that align with those of the republican part, republicans will not get those votes. Who in their right mind would fight beside someone who would be happier to see a knife in your back?

  • OldNorthState

    You can always tell when something “hits home”. The liberal black apologists (typically raving racists, themselves) are going wild on here, today, in response to this one.
    Honesty and “no holds barred” in any article about anything similar to this topic is always met with instantaneous hatred and contempt by these folks. Never fails.

    • Queensbridge_NYC

      You just love Uncle Toms.

      • Kevin Jackson

        Original as well. I’m sure you are surrounded by Uncle Toms.

      • OldNorthState

        Don’t really know any. It takes a helluva’ lot more grit than you’ve ever shown to step up, speak the truth and set a decent example for others, like K. Jackson, here, in the face of a bunch of ghetto-mouthed duffuses like yourself who think they can “shame” somebody into submission by calling him an “Uncle Tom”. I don’t believe that’s been too effective here, now has it?

        • Queensbridge_NYC

          I’m a military vet so I think I know a thing or two about “grit”. This man is a shameless Uncle Tom and you only like him because he serves as a useful attack dog to bite his own people. He provides cover for racist dumb @sses like you and is a disgrace. BTW – I’m sure “ghetto-mouthed” is code for the N Word.

          • OldNorthState

            I’d like to say, “thank you for your service”, but you’re such a misguided liberal parrot – only rehashing the same ol’ “somebody else done the black man wrong, so now I hate ‘em all” (whitey AND anybody else who doesn’t hate him) BS, that I can’t muster that much respect for you.
            And, yes, “ghetto mouthed” IS code for something. It means, “ghetto mouthed”. Anybody that looks at your post history can see that you use the infamous “N” word in about half your posts… you must be attached to it, so you use the usual “accuse somebody else of using it” strategy, when it fits your BS narrative.

            Nice try, but you’ll not find me to be somebody you can manipulate with your usual crap.

          • Queensbridge_NYC

            I don’t need you to thank me for my service, I have plenty of people I actually care about who have thanked me already. Secondly, you’re a moron who parrots insulting stereotypes about black people like “done the black man wrong” and hating “whitey” (btw – who says whitey anymore, what are you 100 yrs old?) etc…and you wonder why most black people don’t vote republican. Catch a clue dumb @ss and stop insulting us and other minorities with your idiotic racist comments and then maybe just maybe we’ll like you more. As for me using the word n*gga I think maybe you should familiarize yourself with the word context. There’s a huge difference between me or any other black person calling another black person a n*gga (obviously has many meanings with no racist intent) and a dumb @ss like you who calls black people n*ggers which is 100% racist. What’s sad is that I actually have to explain this to morons like you who can’t seem to rub two brain cells together to understand the difference.

    I don’t understand why America has to be so black/white literally and metaphorically when it comes to choosing politicians. You know what I would really like to see in the presidents seat; first, someone not married who can actually take the time to get these done consistently without worrying about taking care of a family as well, two, someone who is not Christian, for a country that claims to have religious freedom in recent years I’ve haven’t heard of anyone in office who observes a different faith, let alone an atheist. And wassup with ladies? I would like to see at least 3 in the commander and chiefs chair before I die, lets balance it out so that Washington and the powers that be reflect the diversity of the people they are serving. By the way this author is delusional to think that a great white hope can make everything better, thanks for setting us back another 300 years sir.

    • Justin_Igger

      It is not at all a black vs. White issue in America. It is human beings vs. n1ggers. The rest of the entire country would prosper and live a near-utopian life if n1ggers simply disappeared overnight. The economy would mend itself in mere weeks, people’s morale would skyrocket as they are no longer forced by the government to feed, clothe, and shelter these worthless apes with their tax money, violent crime would drop overnight by well over 50%, and things would be as they should be.

      • Lee Hinds

        Will everything the blacks contributed also disappear.. you probably dont know what those things are.. but if they went away you’d SH@#! ur pants.. it is another thing to say I wish all scum on the earth disappeared overnight.. then alot of blacks, whites, and other races to go..and we WOULD have a better planet.. then again you would Vanish also..!! aslong as there are some blacks that would take care of your butt if you fell at their door S*#@! outta luck..then you cant hate all of them…of curse that wouldnt be many.. but way more than you would think..

    this is the most ridiculous, stupid and appalling article ever!

    The racism is obvious. The disrespect is DIFFERENT from past president’s. I can, in all fairness, remember how G. W. Bush was disrespected in several ways. He was once booed by the Dems while giving his state of the union. He had a shoe thrown at him and some other instances. Although I think him to be the DUMBEST man to ever hold the office, disrespect is disrespect.

    BUT THIS IS NOTHING compared to what Obama has endured.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/08/07/1229674/-The-most-disrespected-President-in-the-history-of-our-country#

    The major difference is that THERE WAS A FREAKING MEETING THE DAY HE WAS ELECTED TO STRATEGIZE HOW TO BEST MAKE HIS LIFE HARD…. WHEN SOME OF THESE THINGS DIDN’T WORK, YOU HAD POLITICIANS BLATANTLY LIEING AND LOSING THEIR TEMPERS!

    I will not disrespect you by calling you a “house negro” because you are entitled to your opinion. I just think that your opinion hurts the country. BUT I respect your right to it! No name calling from me!

    All in all, I am proud to see a successful brother. Just wish that your vision was clearer. While you are seeing through a glass darkly, the plans to RE-seize control by the TRUE racists are incrementally successful.

    • Kevin Jackson

    • Justin_Igger

      It is not racist if you only hate n1ggers, that comes naturally with time and exposure to n1ggers.

      Given enough time and exposure to how n1ggers really are, and not just the magical n1ggers you see in television commercials, any logical, sane man will grow to hate the worthless parasites.

      Xavier,

      Statistically, I can say with certainty that Bush is smarter than YOU! He also made better grades than Al Gore. When you give up your petty grievances, and built in excuses, and stand tall and truly free in your mind – then you will be free. It won’t be given you by the government, you will have earned it.

  • Samm_one

    Just a few thoughts as I go through this paragraph by paragraph.

    Ok where to begin, by and large black people cannot be racist, racism is institutional. We can however be bigoted, it really helps to use the correct word when referring to complex concepts.

    Next, precisely when is the election of a President of the United States supposed to do either of the two things you mentioned. That honestly makes no sense at all. I really would need to see some supporting data for that one, the point is almost a word salad it is so bad. Presidents are generally elected because a majority of the American public has decided that one candidate is the best person for the job, period.

    So you get to the central point of your argument with logic that would be deeply flawed, and easily called into question on a very good day.

    If i remember(and googled) correctly, President Bush had many immigration policies that were considered racist( see I used the word properly). The border fence and the deployment of the National Guard spring to mind. Also of note is that the people who say “America belongs to Mexico anyway” are a minority of vocal idiots everyone has those guys, it is best not to take them too seriously. When black people had sanity, at this point I would call into question the purpose of this article in general. You truly attract no one to your banner by insulting the reader. Also this begs a few questions;

    1. When did black people lose their sanity collectively?

    2. This loss of sanity is shown how?

    3. How are you supporting this claim with FACTS?

    If you are going to go there it helps to have this important information at hand, or the general consensus has to agree with you. In this case neither is true.

    Point of fact liberal blacks broke from the republican party as a whole because of the parties use of the southern strategy here is some base reading on the topic;

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy

    Again we find you using flawed logic and easily questionable, if not disprovable claims. Especially considering that the southern strategy was designed to appeal to racism. I think perhaps the roots of the disagreement lies there.

    Fighting for one’s rights cannot ever be described as racist. The possibility simply does not exist within constraints of logic.

    What modern Democrat can you name supports any of the policies of Andrew Johnson. Name three and I will concede the point.

    Do not cite the civil rights movement in this article or any article you write at all, ever. The reason I am comfortable saying this is that my mother was a member of SCLC I grew up knowing a great deal of those people and still do. Trust me none of them agree with this article and if they have heard of you they do not like you.

    Of course black people were not called racist for criticizing previous Presidents policies since often they were criticizing policies that were perceived to be racist. Again faulty logic, and misleading word usage. Worth considering as well is that if 90 percent of black people are against something they may have a point.

    Never cite Regan as a person who tried to help black people. This one is actually funny but here are a couple of articles you can read without having to link to a puff piece written by his son(it hurts your case if you do not mention that very important detail).

    http://academic.udayton.edu/race/03justice/crime09.htm

    The Perkins article was lifted from the Gadsden Times no one knows what that is. If you want me to take facts at face value never use the Gadsden Times as your reliable well researched source.

    When has arguing figures racist. That is another word salad as is the entire next paragraph. It seems like this entire article has been a set up to allow you to go on this poorly thought diatribe that begins here and closes this “article” out. From this point it turns into just an angry ramble with random out of context facts appear, and the word race or racist is used 10 times and for the most part it is used incorrectly. DO BETTER

      I’m a liberal but I do support militarizing the border with Mexico and Canada…that doesn’t make someone racist

      • Samm_one

        Any border during the age of terrorism should be protected. My point was that people did and still do perceive the policy racist. Especially considering that we only choose to militarize the southern border.

        • lordblazer

          yea I do find it interesting that enforcement of the Canadian border isn’t taken seriously. though I am against militarization of borders, but I am also strongly against the existence of those borders. Also am against the current nation-state world order we have. Though it’s been around for 700 years now. I think it’s time humanity moves on, but maybe being a globally mobile professional has made me yearn for a one world government. I’m black american btw.. I am glad you deconstructed the author of this article’s argument. I read stuff like this and say to myself “This is why I leave the country as often as I do” <— and my relatives still wonder why I do what I do.

          • delahaya

            Dang Canadians, with their Poutine and good Beer!

      • delahaya

        Maybe we should just declare the Mexican border a nation park so Obama will close it.

        • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BX-7BlRc_a0 Greg4422

          Was that your idea of humor? Because you do realize it’s the Congress that controls the closing of the national parks…not the President…a little clause in the US Constitution we like to call the power of the purse.

          • delahaya

            As far as I know, the House passed funding for the parks. Of course, if the Democrat Senate would actually pass a budget as the Constitution and Congressional rules require, there wouldn’t be any continuing resolutions!

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BX-7BlRc_a0 Greg4422

            So you admit you were just trolling when you said Obama closed the national parks?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BX-7BlRc_a0 Greg4422

            BTW In April of this year the Senate returned to regular order by passing a budget, and it’s now House Republicans that are refusing to come to the table to negotiate a long-term spending plan.

    • Master Bates

      Let’s start with the definition of racism. according to the Oxford English Dictionary, Racism is a “noun [mass noun]
      the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races: theories of racism
      prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior:” See http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/racism for details.

      This means your initial assertion is flawed and, hence, the drivel which follows has no basis for validity.

      • Samm_one

        I will see that and counter with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism#Institutional try again.

        • Weather3014

          What? Institutional racism is by an institution, but racism is exactly what the Oxford English dictionary says and what was written in the blog. Where does the author add the word institutional?

        • Master Bates

          Samm, you are pointing to institutional racism, not individual racism. An institution can not have a race, even though it is legally a person.

          Stokely Carmichael is credited for coining the phrase institutional racism in the late 1960s. He defined the term as “the collective failure of an organization to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture or ethnic origin”

          Note, the originator of the term says that it applies ONLY to organizations, not to individuals. Hence it does not apply to black, white, yellow, green, red, purple or blue persons, only to organizations.

          Your counter is flawed and invalid.

      5 up high Samm_one! This article has so enraged me that i can’t stop talking about how misdirected my “sheeples” have become! I guess in a sense his goal is somewhat being achieved when i direct others to view w/their own eyes, but of course I’m using it as a point of discussion w/in my circle (not a monolithic group) to come w/constructive counter-thoughts and actions. I nominate YOU to refute every blog that Mr. Johnson puts up. Your response is well reasoned, well thought out and well written. Thank you!

      • Samm_one

        I may do exactly that.

      Re: My friend Taleeb Starkes Book (An Amazon Best Seller), “The Uncivil War: Blacks vs. Niggers.” You sir, would be characterized as Black (WNT). The book is excellent and would do a whole bunch to educate you in how things exist in THE REAL WORLD.

      Without the Whites feeding, clothing, and sheltering them, the n1ggers would be left to mother nature and face certain extinction.

      • Blackice58

        The bottom line is the racist crackers in the country are afraid because they have become the minority. That was meant for you Justin so you might want to start looking over your shoulder for those n1ggers and believe me you won’t be hard to find.

        • Justin_Igger

          Whites are around 70% of America, ni66ers less than 15%, so your math fails, my little ape ni66er. Besides, Whites are genetically superior in all ways to subhuman ni66ers. One White man is worth more than a thousand worthless ni66ers in warfare combat. Even our women and children have been trained on how to shoot a ni66er. And it’s not us getting killed and aborted in record numbers in America, now is it chimp?
          All we have to do is cut the welfare and food stamps off, and BOOM! All ni66ers dead in just a few short weeks, since you unevolved ape ni66ers can’t feed, clothe, shelter, or fend for yourselves.

    I think this is plagiarized a paragraph from this 2011 editorial:

    http://jacksonville.com/opinion/blog/406107/carol-boone/2011-01-20/michael-reagan-ronald-reagan-our-first-black-president

    “African-American columnist Joseph Perkins has studied the effects of Reaganomics on black America. He found that, after the Reagan tax cuts gained traction, African-American unemployment fell from 19.5 percent in 1983 to 11.4 percent in 1989. Black-owned businesses saw income rise from $12.4 billion in 1982 to $18.1 billion in 1987 čan annual average growth rate of 7.9 percent. The black middle class expanded by one-third during the Reagan years, from 3.6 million to 4.8 million.” – From the editorial

      The reegon Recession of 1981-83 (spelled phonetically) brought EVERY-one down…especially those Blacks AND Whites at the bottom rung.

      The fact that his subsequent tax breaks for the wealthy AND the 1st ever $TRILLION DOLLAR raid on our treasury brought US ALL back up should be an obvious no-brainer to even the most ignorant tea-billy…

      These statistics, taken out of context from the big picture, are absolutely useless and only serve to validate everything most thinking people on this blog are trying…in vain to tell ya’ll.

    I have noticed a bunch of folks on here that, rather than debate the issue, stoop to name calling and offensive slurs like the cowards they are.

Prove the data wrong or just tuck your tails and hide!

    • Ron Rose

      The article needs debating?

    • delahaya

      Because they’re liberals. Liberals don’t debate, they name call?

      • Nice Guy

        I have to down-vote this because Obama’s evil heart and darkened mind don’t come from his unevolved state; they come from his slavery to sin, his lust for power, his pride, his vanity.

        • hawstom

          And in that, Obama is just one of the guys. We should be complaining, not that he is worse, but that he is more of the same. Broken, broken, broken.

          RIGHT=TRASH articles like this are always accompanied by entire cadre’s of republicon “think” tank…paid professional Internet trolls…just to gage our

          They often wrap themselves in the Flag or include pictures of military people (usually deceased) in an appeal to our
          patriotism.

    • delahaya

      What a troll. Look at the times (fighting a cold war) and the ratio between debt and growth. We had a military three times the size it is now and still the deficit was in the billions, not trillions like it is now. Your childish antics don’t advance any argument or understanding.

      • realronaldreagan

        Thanks for making excuses for me. Total military force was about 2 million during my entire presidency vs 1.5 million today. Defense spending was a little over 6% of GDP in the late 80″s and is a little under 6% now. I also raised taxes a dozen times. You’re an idiot.

        • delahaya

          Uh, no, it was more like 3 million. The GDP is also calculate differently, now, and Reagan was not in Congress and can’t raise taxes. Who is the idiot now. Not me.

          • realronaldreagan

            My numbers are from that noted liberal front group called the department of defense. So, since Obama is not in congress right now, the republicans are responsible for any current tax increases?

  • conservativechick

    Kevin – You’re famous – make Megyn Kelly have you on her show to personally apologize!

    If you read the posts before mine the problem starts to become clear. Hold the “ctrl” key and hit f on your keyboard. Type monkey, slave, coon or n1gger in the bar that pops up and count how many times they pop up. There are a bunch of people that disagree with Obamas policies, myself included but its hard to distinguish between the racists and those that have a legitimate qualm on the conservative side. So, while there are a ton of minorities whom have values that align with those of the republican part, republicans will not get those votes. Who in their right mind would fight beside someone who would be happier to see a knife in your back?

    • Ron Rose

      Cool, never heard of the ctrl f thing before.

    • Amanda Croley

      I agree with you on some points. The idiots that are truly racists make everyone with conservative views seem aligned with them. I would bet that those ignorant trolls are but a small portion of conservatives. Certainly no more than the racists from the liberal side of the aisle.

    • Yeah-OK

      Yes, there are still real racists and ignorant folks who truly believe one race is inherently “better” than another. Do not forget, though, that there are also trolls who act this way to put forward an agenda. I’m a young Black guy who notices this, by the way.

  • baked

      Satire…maybe look it up.

      • baked

        Call it what you want….and I’ll do the same.

        • glassa

          You are entitled to your own opinion.
          You are not entitled to your own reality. The article was mocking liberals who label anyone who disagrees with Obama racist.

          The point he was making was that obviously everyone always went along with white Republican presidents 100% of the time in the past…right? They never experienced opposition…EVER. THAT attitude is what he was mocking. And that attitude is what you & every liberal screaming racism at everyone has.

          So you may want to bury your head in the sand & pretend that everyone around you is the freaky racist, extremist. But the problem is really with you & your assumptions of others. I’d vote for a black man any day of the week. The
          problem is Obama as a politician & his policies. And that is the stance of 99% of those who aren’t brainwashed Democrat drones.

          But if it makes you feel better to lie to yourself…please continue to bury your head in the sand. You only
          make yourself look like a complete moron.

          • baked

            First off – chill with attempting to label me (i.e., “racist”, “liberal”, & “moron”). You DO NOT know me and CAN NOT put me in a box. How typical and arrogant of you! Clearly, you do not realize it, but you’re attempting to do the same thing you accuse me of. So give it a break….

            As you so “eloquently” state….”I’m entitled to my opinion”. C’est la vie!!!! So, let’s just agree to that.

            Lastly, you’re obviously filled with rage and dance to the tune of some wildly hyped-up propaganda. In my view, you have next to no credibility simply based on the fact that you’re quoting the same talking points you hear day-in & day-out from the right. And, you want to imply that I’m “brainwashed”.

          • glassa

            So why is it NOT ok for me to put you in a box, when you totally tried to put a black man in a box? And it’s not arrogant of you at all to do it? Love that double standard.

            If it’s not ok to put people in a box, please remember that the next time you hear Democrats claiming that non-Democrats (Repubs & others) are racist…just because they have a political disagreement with Obama.

            Problem: I don’t listen to talk radio. And I don’t really even watch Fox News (it’s on at the gym, but so is CNN…I’m usually reading). But I know they’re your favorite boogyman
            when someone’s not a blind devotee of the Democrat Party.

            I’m not a drone. And I’m not angry or filled with rage either. I just refuse to fall prey to politicians or a party who wants to label anyone as a racist if they’re not bowing down
            worshipping Obama as if he’s God’s gift to humanity. And I refuse to fall prey to a bunch of people who think they own black people, the way Democrats do. It’s insulting to the black people in question. They are free to be whoever
            they want to be. And no amount of browbeating or name-calling (Uncle Tom) by people like you is going to change
            that.

            Democrats have the worst history of racism. They were the ones who fought against the end of slavery. They were the ones who created the KKK as a backlash when the slaves were freed. And to this day, they are the ones who do
            their best to trap black people in poverty & make them dependent on government…another form of slavery.

            No, I will not agree to disagree. This was a parody article. It was MOCKING attitudes like yours . If you don’t
            have the ability to understand that, it’s not my fault. However, it illustrates how vulnerable you are to propaganda and why you are a Democrat.
            And if you refuse to acknowledge that this was satire, it means you’re more devoted to Democrats and Obama, than you are the truth and your country.

            Some people would rather worship at the foot of Democrats, than ever admit that they may be wrong about something. Don’t be one of them.

          • glassa

            Problem: The Birther movement is fringe. It’s not all the non-Democrats at all. I’m not one of them. But it’s interesting that there you go again putting all non-Democrats in a box. Funny how it’s totally ok for you to do it, isn’t it?

            The Birther thing was actually started by Hillary Clinton’s team before Obama actually got the nomination. It’s true. Look it up. Anyway, I’m of the opinion that if there were anything to this whole Birther thing, the Clintons would have destroyed him with it. The Clintons don’t mess around. They wouldn’t have let a pipsqueak like Barry O screw them over if they had a weapon to use against him.

            “When has any other president been subjected to this foolishness???? ”
            Chester A. Arthur…in the 1800s the Democrats felt for sure that he had been born in Canada. It’s a fascinating little piece of our history. You should look it up.

            I couldn’t care less what his religion is.

            ” It burns my a*s to hear white people say “I’m not a racist” when your history (past & present) proves otherwise.”
            I can’t help my history any more than you can. I’m sure you have some skeletons in your history’s closet. If I could go back in history & slap all the slaveholders into shackles I would. If I could smack the sh2t out of the numbskulls in the 60s I would. But holding me responsible for something that happened 120 years before I was born is completely retarded beyond measure. I don’t have a problem with black people and I never have.

            However, if you continue to blame people like me for everything that happened in history, it will only serve to antagonize & help justify the racism that already exists. I hate racism no matter what the color of a person’s skin. And as much as I dislike Obama, I cried tears of joy the night he was elected because it showed how far our country had come. THAT isn’t something I would expect you to understand if all you want to do is look at me as “evil whitey.”

            “when in fact you don’t want us near you. ”
            That’s YOUR own assertion. And your assertion is not my problem, that’s your problem. I don’t mind if you’re near me. I’m not afraid of you. You seem to have a paranoid complex that’s based in the 40s & 50s. This is 2013…please don’t assume anything about my views of you and I’ll return the favor. It’s no different than if you would assume I was locking my car door when you were walking along, just because you’re black. I do it no matter who comes along, because this is a dangerous world. I don’t trust anyone, no matter what the color of their skin is.

            “Your people (assuming you’re white) have put ALL blacks in a box. You have this blanket perception based on a few rotten eggs.”
            Don’t you think you’ve got a blanket perception based on the rotten eggs of the past? Or are you only to willing to ignore your own perceptions?
            I haven’t put anyone in a box. Do you think I’m assuming you’re part of a gang or something? For all I know, you’re a fine upstanding well-known citizen in your community. A doctor or something. Why would you think I’d assume you’re less?

            “The commander in chief is a so-called “black” man. And, no white person on the face of this sweet earth wants to be told “what to do” by a n***er.”
            There you go with YOUR blanket perceptions again. I’d vote for Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Mia Love, Dr. Benjamin Carson or any other person of color. And frankly, I know that Herman Cain is BIG in non-Democrat circles. So your assertion that no white person wants a black man as POTUS is completely wrong. Again, it’s his POLITICS that’s the problem, not his race. Most of the time, race doesn’t even enter the equation. People just ASSUME it does because they want it to be that way. Because when they frame it that way, they don’t have to argue their political stance on it’s merits.

            Second…don’t even use that word “n” in a conversation with me. I don’t care who you are, it’s not acceptable.

            Speaking of putting people in boxes, I find it fascinating that again, when you see a black man or woman who’s not a Democrat, you automatically assume they’re some traitor. That box of yours is awfully big & full of your assumptions.

            “And to think, here in 2013 you have a white man parading around outside the “pearly gates” of the WH waving a Confederate flag. Go figure…I’m sure that was an exception, right?”

            Well, he was one man in a group of a bunch of people. I do believe that’s the very definition of “exception.”

            And for the record, those same people are now pissed off at him. The TP Facebook page had his picture up with the caption “does anyone know who this @sshole is?” And I read where he was told to put the flag away, but refused.

        • glassa

          One other thing I’d like to point out…people like you really
          belittle the real racism that still exists in this country. A political disagreement is just that…a disagreement. 99% of the time race doesn’t even enter the equation.

          The problem here is that you feel as if you have the right
          to put a black man in a corner & tell him what political party he should align himself with. He’s free to align himself with any political party he chooses. You do not own him! The fact that
          you think you DO, makes you the racist.

    The article was hilarious.
    Jackson gets it.
    For those who don’t, yeah there is racism in America, but a lot of folks don’t care what your color is. Rather can you do the job/ no excuses/ no baloney.

    But that ain’t good enough for some of the racist hatemongers out there milking the politics of envy like Al and Jesse and their liberal/progressive white suckups and bootlicks. Any criticism of a black person is ipso facto racism.

    As in the real reason Idi Amin didn’t win the Nobel Peace Prize because he wasn’t whiter than Mother Theresa.

    But as the saying goes, my momma didn’t raise no fools.
    So sorry bout yours.

    I would vote for a black conservative over a white progressive any day of the week. I would rather a Libertarian of any color win. Our freedoms in this country are on the verge of being destroyed. We are at the point of decention that will lead to bloodshed and even war if not corrected. Color is just a way to control the people and pit them against each other. We need someone in charge of this country that actually loves this country and respects it. It seems like most of those that have been elected now days ether hates liberty and freedom or are so busy lining their pockets and the pockets of the buddies that they could care less what happens to the people of this country. When will the people of this country wake up and realize The politicians have enslaved us all. Law enforcement, enforce laws they create to keep us under their boot.

    • hawstom

      I’m willing to believe that they all love our country on some level. But that doesn’t make them good and wise leaders, does it? And that doesn’t fix the system. War, debt, and expansion of the national government just keep on keeping on.

        Actually, hawstom, we have traitors in our midst that don’t love this country. You are being terribly naive.

          Yeah. At my age, naïveté is a choice, more likely than not. Also, having personally gone through the process of having to evaluate whether to conscientiously renounce my citizenship, I tend to cut people a lot of slack.

  • Beyond_The_Political_Spectrum

    I’m sure many will disagree, but let’s be real; Obama has received far more disrespect and enmity than any of his white predessors. Janet’s Brewer’s finger-in-the-face, Joe Wilson’s infamous “You Lie,” The “He’s-a-Muslim/Marxist/Foreign-Born-Fill-In-The-Blank,” The Confederate Flag waver(s) in front of the White House with the extremist statements, the constant challenges to his birthright/academic legitmacy by Trump-n-Friends—these are unprecedented events in the history of an American president (with the possible exception of Lincoln). When someone says the opposition against Obama is chiefly racially motivated, it’s based on subtle innuendo (i.e., codewords–“the food stamp president ,” “…taking your money and giving it to black people,” etc.), subconsciously entrenched racial attitudes, and the fact that he’s so easy to slam by many of those on the extreme ideological right to the point where many of those perpetrators aren’t even aware of their motives (and to be honest, I can’t believe I even have to explain such an elementary dynamic).

    • delahaya

      I disagree simply because you’re wrong. Bush had plays written about the fantasy of assassinating him. Liberals openly talked about hoping he would get a disease and die. His children were mocked and he was made fun of – for his mannerisms, his speech, his supposed stupidity (he made better grades than Al Gore in graduate school). Bush’s press conferences were MUCH harsher than Obama’s. Maybe, just maybe, people dislike Obama because he’s brought us record unemployment, record homelessness, record deficits, record low labor participation, record food stamp use, record destruction of middle class wealth, average lower salaries, and the first ever downgrade of our nation’s credit. Add on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Secret Service sex scandals, NSA spying, IRS targeting political opponents, and the DOJ targeting journalists, etc. and the real question is not why someone would opposed Obama – the real question is why someone would support him. If an enemy country had done this to us we’d rightly consider it an act of war!
      “Beyond”, you’re just another liberal hack trying to pretend otherwise. Please give up the charade.

      • Beyond_The_Political_Spectrum

        Pathetic…you really need to learn that there are more than 2 life forms in the known universe beyond “liberals” and “conservatives.” But I see trying to have an objective discourse with you is a waste of time. You are seeing what you want to believe rather than the reaility in front of you. You’re viewing things through the prism of ideology, and like Joseph MacCarty, instead of seeing a “communist” behind every rosebush, you see a “liberal” behind every disagreement. When you’re dead, you don’t know you’re dead. But it just affects others around you. Being stupid is the same way…,you don’t know you’re stupid…it just affects others around you. You need to stay in your intellectual league…you’re way beyond yourself. Some of us don’t adhere to or entrench ourselves in limited dogmas. Be like water my friend. ;)

If by “quiz” you mean a double major in political science/history (with honors), a masters in history, and a lifetime of experiences, then yes…I’m “guilty” of “taking a quiz.” And YOU sound far more “deluded” than I my friend.

            Well, if some individuals wouldnt assume that everyone who disagrees with conservative mantra is automatically a “liberal” (as if that’s inherently a bad thing), it wouldnt be necessary to put these mental midgets in their places. And for the record, the only reason I even mentioned my academic background was to break his assumption that my responses are reasoned, backed by more than his narrow assumptions that someone outside of conservative mindsets can actually think.

        We had 8 years of Brush and the result from it was record unemployment, record homelessness record deficits and record low labor participation, record food stamp use, record destruction of middle class wealth, average lower salaries, and first ever downgrade of our nation’s credit. Obama inherited these things when he came into office. You are really out of touch or in denial!! It was a deficit when Brush left office. Oh do you remember the bail out for fannieMae and FeddieMac,and the rest of the banking institution wow! I’m done with this website….you all are crazy and out of touch with reality.

        • Micky Baker

          “record unemployment”?

          The record unemployment occurred after Obama’s stimulus package, and it is still higher now than December 2008. The Deficit is also still higher than Bush’s.

        • delahaya

          Then why was everything better under Bush?! Bush had to deal with the mortgage meltdown, the accounting firm scandals, the bursting of the Y2K bubble, the 9/11 attacks (and recession), and so on. ALL that go cleaned up for Obama and Bush still had MORE economic growth, and lower unemployment, lower poverty, and lower deficits. Truth hurts, doesn’t it?

        • Micky Baker

          The unemployment rate is higher now than at any time during Bush’s worst year.

    • Micky Baker

Is conservative principles without contradictions or double-standards?

    • KSDelgado

      Nope. the award for “most disrespect and enmity received” easily goes to W. He’s still getting it, even though he’s been put of office for more than 5 years.

      –Obama does lie. I can’t think of a single truth he’s told, but I can name many things he lied about.
      –If he’s truly American and qualified for the presidency, why won’t he just release his *real* birth certificate already? the innocent have nothing to hide.
      –The flack the Obama administration comes from the ruinous policies he has made and/or enacted.
      –Most sensible people judge the man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character. the content of his character just happens to be the most detrimental thing our country has ever seen.

      Exactly. Just like Sam Jacksons character in “Jango” . Whites have always had a penchant for holding up a house kneegrow for publicity. He is no different than whites that pander out of white guilt afraid to embrace the fact they don’t owe anyone anything.
      Our country is bigger than race, but is still hindered by racism. for a black man to say we are better off with a POTUS based upon his being any specific race is problematic because it then suggest a greater level of intelligence based upon race.
      Note that for all his accomplishments he failed to consider whether he would be able to do as well as Obama or could govern a nation as complex as ours.
      Obama has on his resume, POTUS.
      Even the company that came in 400th on the fortune 400, was on the list. Even if you are last on the list of top billionaires in the world, you made the list.
      To call Obama the worst POTUS in history as some try, he is among a group of 43 men that have held that distinction. Of the hundreds of millions of men and women that have lived in this country long enough to qualify to run for that office, only 43 have done so. If he is bad, what are the rest of us that never tried, or that ran against him and failed to even get the nomination from their own parties?

      • delahaya

        Look up the statistics, the facts. Obama is the worst president we have had and YOU are the one being blinded by race and unable, or unwilling, to see it. The very fact that I dare to criticize him has people in a total uproar. I criticized Clinton and Carter also. Its the horrible policies! (Clinton didn’t get to do much so he wasn’t so bad).

        • Chuckie Smith

          Why did you not include a president between that era that was so bad he only got one term, daddy Bush? When you are outright bad, you do not get re-elected. That is key one on the test. Start with the one termers when constructing any list of worsts. People vote, he was not appointed, but elected twice. Some will think Reagan was the worst, but they too, like you, are being partisan, biased and not honest, or maybe they are just politically ignorant.

        • Chuckie Smith

          delahaya, the worst presidents are the ones that like to say who the worst ones are that never even ran for the office but met all of the qualifications.
          You are like someone in the crowd at a Mayweather fight yelling he is a bum, but you dare not get in the ring with him because you are so far down the list you would have to jump ten feet up to be at bum status.
          We elect people to do an unpopular job we ourselves are too lazy or stupid to do then complain about how they do it.
          Must be nice to be the back seat driver type.
          Lead, follow, or GTFO of the way is what we would say in the Army.

            You opinion is so cliche. Every black man who does not espouse the ideals of the democratic party is nothing more than an “Uncle Tom” or “House Negro”. Never mind all the field negroes languishing in the democratic party.

      • KSDelgado

        This is reality, not a stupid movie called “Jango”. In the real world, we are being forced to either love and praise barack Obama, or get called out for being hateful racistr bigots, even if it’s his policies that we disagree with and not the color of his skin. conservatives hate him because of his policies. liberals love him for his skin color.

        Just because a man reaches a good position does not make him a good man. (Remember–Hitler was voted in democratically in 1933). For a black man to say we are better off with a white man as president means that he is remembering the days before the black man in office screwed us over worse than we’ve ever been before. Even if Obama was white, he’d still be just as bad.

  • Fair and Balanced

    This article is on target Blacks would never tolerate this rate of unemployment if the President were Caucasian. As a well educated Black woman, I have been searching for over 3 years for a job in America and have not been able to find one. I am an HR professional with 2 MS degrees and in the final stages of my doctorate which I cannot complete because I do not have a job. Furthermore, under his presidency I have seen America’s middle class continuously decline into despair we are losing our homes, jobs and the life we worked so hard to build. I am a conservative and see the lies, deceit and the games that this President and the democratic congress continues to spew and it is pathetic. If he were Caucasian Blacks would have already marched on the White House and demanded jobs yet many of us sit quietly while this President works to turn this country into a 3rd world socialist society.

    • Beyond_The_Political_Spectrum

      Uh…I remember the Carter and Reagan years, and unemployment among blacks was considerably higher THEN…and there were no marches on the White House. He is a PRESIDENT, not a dictator…he cannot govern or make decisions by decree. Things are the way they are because of BOTH political parties. Don’t think the white guys wear the white hats…or don’t you remember the all of the lobbying scandals that were rampant in Congress under the Bush years…? Selective thinking/memory is not what makes for reasoned and clear thinking. Americans REALLY need to think beyond that “liberal vs. conservative” paradigm!

      • delahaya

        Uh, black unemployment is significantly higher now than under Reagan, that was one of the points of the article – did you read it?

        That isn’t true. There are more than 49 million people in the Civilian Labor Force that have a bachelor degree or higher. There are 76.5 million people with at least some college that are in the Civilian Labor Force. This right at half of the Labor Force. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/archives/empsit_09062013.htm

        The data is released every month, except it must have been a bad one because the Obama administration used the government shutdown as an excuse not to release the one from September. By the way, it was already written. The Survey is conducted during the week of the 12th of every month. If it was a good one, it would have been released.

      So there where no blacks around during all of the past presidential administrations, of which, many at a time of war, civil unrest or high unemployment. We just got here?
      If we were here and marched it was for basic rights. Blacks don’t march over the economic downturn because it was not a down turn for us. We come up in poverty and leave it. The issue is that now a problem that used to be silent among whites is now important because it has come to your neck of the woods. Poor whites are not complaining as much as rich whites because they too came up used to poverty and are more resilient than rich whites.
      Black people were given ribs and intestines during slavery and made do. We still do no matter what the POTUS does.
      Capital gains issues were never a black problem. We do not lose billions in a stock market crash. We do not lose thousands of homes in a bubble correction because on the large we did not own them.
      See how this works? Those that never had, had less to lose than those that had. Its the haves that are complaining right now. The have not’s never had have to lose. I know you get it.

  • delahaya

    The problem is human nature. In the US, Blacks have the built-in excuse for failure or someone not liking them of “racism”. Whites don’t. If my boss corrects me, I actually listen to him and try to get better, I don’t dismiss it as being “racist”. If someone doesn’t like me or attacks me, I have to actually ponder whether they could be correct, or whether they are an enemy.
    Here’s a news flash, whites may have it easier in the US than blacks, but we don’t have it easy. Life is hard. The toilet paper doesn’t magically rise of the roll and wipe my behind for me. I have to get up everyday, sick or not and go to work. I have to deal with all the crap there. I have to deal with all the crap my kids put up with at school – a large part of which is, unfortunately, minority kids acting pretty badly and not being disciplined by the school. I have to pay all my bills, all the ridiculous taxes, and then get audited by the IRS because I give to conservative causes. No one gives me a dang thing. I have to deal with street thugs while walking into and out of my place of business. But… I have NO excuses and failure is not an option. Maybe that is why I make a decent living – because I had no other choice. The alternative is oblivion.

      So it is your assertion that whites never claim that “the blacks” or the Mexicans are taking their jobs? Whites are the biggest group of whiners where it comes to screaming some one is taking their jobs.
      Some of us blacks actually went to college and never once saw a food stamp though we came up poor. Being poor does not mean you want help or need help from others. For most, it means you work that much harder. I too am a successful black man from dire childhood circumstances.
      I disagree “America” needs a white savior or that white masters are our solution as this house negro put it.
      Yes. Watching the movie Jango Unchained, the character played by Samuel L. Jackson is still alive. Black men that endear themselves to whites see blacks that call them on it as racist. men like Kevin are no different than women that pander to an abusive husbands ego to calm the tension and ingratiate themselves to their master.
      He has the highest esteem among his white peers, but ask him to name one person that grew up with him that still respects him? White people always loved the minstrel shows, but even Sammy Davis junior had to use the back entrance.

      • delahaya

        Uh, Chuckie, that is just a move – its not real!

        • Chuckie Smith

          The movie hit upon some themes based upon the way typical slave plantations where ran. The master ran it like a prison with trustees over seeing the others. One family could not control all those slaves so he needed to give those willing to show allegiance special favor. Hence the house kneegrow.

      • Micky Baker

        Actually, the unions formed and the minimum wage was created by progressives because they were made blacks were taking white, progressives’ jobs. They’re still doing the same thing to the blacks that they did then.

        I’ll say this. If Obama was white, you would be all over his poor record, but because he’s black, you aren’t.

      • KSDelgado

        how about you turn off your silly movie “Jango Unchained” and pay attention to some more reality.
        Ideally, yes. being poor would just mean that you work harder. however, increasing trends are migrating towards being poor equaling being on welfare, which, in some states, is currently more profitable than a minimum-wage job.

        blacks do not have to endear to whites, nor was Kevin doing so. the only people who really care about skin color are the racists from the hypocritical left like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson, who continue to preach to blacks that they are “victims” and that they are “oppressed”, as if they were still working in the plantations. Most of the “white whiners” you meet are people in deep-blue strongholds that are bitching about wanting to get paid $15/hour for flipping burgers.

      • powdereddonuts

        “Endear” themselves to whites? How? By not being taken for granted by democrats? By pointing out all the hypocrisy of the racist left? You guys still have that slavery mentality. Hard to blame you when the democrats are so good in instilling it in you.

    • Chuckie Smith

      Poor white along the red states blame Obama since day one for their lack of mobility and failure. Whites have blamed Mexicans for coming across the border taking “their” jobs.
      Not all whites, but a great deal of whites are poor. You act as if we don’t know about the honey boo boo child whites you demean as “white trash”. Just because you toss them away rather than admit they exist, does not mean they do not exist.
      Only 30% of us in this country of college graduate age have done so. 70% of you across the racial spectrum have not. The color most important in this country is green, not black, not white. Poverty knows no color so stop acting as if all whites live in LaJolla California and drive Bentleys, or cars at all.

  • kssturgis62

    Kevin you need to go after Megyn Kelly, for her calling Joe the Plumber a Racist over this article. I thought she might apologize for her statements last night, but she bypassed it. Her excuse will be it was all about the Shutdown. This is OUTRAGEOUS. Stand Strong Kevin, you are a True Patriot, who speaks the truth, and at least you are trying to help EVERYONE see the light of day of what is taking place. Thank you so much !!

    • Chuckie Smith

      You tell him. Go get em boy. Go get that bad woman fer a sayin Joe the Plumber is a racist. Sick em boy.
      That’s it Kevin, you tell em we need a good white man back in office. White people always loved a good black over seer to keep other blacks in their place. They are manageable and take commands almost as good as a trusted coon hound so long as they know their place and remain humble.
      True Patriot? The patriots stole the land from the native Americans, then stabbed England in the back. If I send you out with my money to buy me some property and when I arrive to take possession you claim rights to what is mine, that makes you a traitor.
      I am grateful for the outcome of the revolt and even slavery, but that does not sweeten it as good. Were it not for slavery I would not be here, but that does not make me grateful to the slave owners, just for my life here in this nation I love.
      My father, all of my siblings, to include my sister, actively served our nations military. We do not point out others as patriots just because they talk a good game, we served. Only 1% of all Americans that have ever lived have actually served in our nations defense so the other 99 can act tough. Calling Ted Nugent a patriot or this guy demeans all of us that have served.
      Modern day minute men carry and M16 and wear the flag. I did that for ten years. I am a proud Patriot, but I do not need a POTUS picked just because he is white, or of a particular party, but because he is the best choice.

            Jesus Christ that the Teabillies follow so intently, was a community organizer and communist. He fed the hungry for free, clothed the homeless for free, healed the sick, no co pay.

      • delahaya

        Chuckie,

        You’re almost a parody of yourself. Look up the stats on poverty, unemployment, homelessness, deficits, food stamp use, middle class wealth, the US credit raiting, etc. From those FACTS, tell us how Obama is a better president or even a good one.

        • Chuckie Smith

          We did not judge the efficacy of white POTUS by Grover Cleveland and then say no more white Presidents. We didn’t do it after Truman or Carter, or Bush 1 term I. The article is about whether or not black men can lead and we are basing it on one and not 40.

      • Micky Baker

        Megyn Kelly is a liar. The article was written by Kevin Jackson. Did you even go check the facts? Megyn didn’t either. She LIED and you are so racist against white people, you don’t care that she lied.

        • Chuckie Smith

          I am not soooo, racist, Do you see my picture? My cam works fine and its not the lighting. My gramps was white plus I have white friends. You only need one of those to prove you aren’t a racist yet I have two.

      • KSDelgado

        MLK once said to judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.
        Tell me then… what is about Obama that appealed so strongly to you? Was it the record debt that is more than double what it was during the Bush Administration? the increasing gas prices, unemployment rates, and number of people on welfare? How about all those extra wars he started?

        No, this does not make anything bad that Bush (or any republican) did right… but how is Obama any better?

        • Chuckie Smith

          Obama is the first of his kind just as the first woman will be of her kind. When we have seen even half as many women or minorities in that office, then lets hear the complaints. People were so discontent with a few past POTUS that they were assassinated or attempts came close, to include Reagan. Yes believe all the concocted stories about the shooters the gov and media feeds you and don’t think for yourselves.
          Obama is a fist for this country. After number 40 or so of no progress, then lets hear it. Nah, then lets let women try for a century or so before we nip them in the bud.

  • Kevin Dragotta

    I tend to agree that some “outspoken” black liberals are themselves a racist and it is obvious/expected by everyone, that they will see every raised eyebrow as being a race driven insult against them(pulling the “race card”).

    Some of us know the song and dance that always goes around when the democrats are elected to office. I was young, but I remember the Clinton years where I listed to people talk politics, otherwise known as “Clinton is going to sink America” discussions. Ultimately however you would hear ideological reasoning behind the discontent. When it came to Obama the ideology was gone. The type of arguments were not against his policies but against the man himself. Practically overnight, the candor of the opposition was obviously more intense than anyone living has ever seen, and it wasn’t based on anything tangible, and everyone noticed. Weather or not you chose to ignore what you noticed, at some point you questioned yourself, “is it was because he’s black?”.

    Here is the clincher for me. Black americans are often going to be on the lookout for racism. They pretty much expect that they will encounter it at some point in their life. I remember years ago, a social experiment where, when an uninvolved group of people, view a scene that is meant to subtlety convey racial conflict between two parties, the black people will almost always notice the subtlety. Most white participants did not pick up on racial undertone, and when they did, they were less likely to acknowledge it as racism.

    So the point is… White people don’t like to acknowledge racism. They pretty much like to pretend it doesn’t exist. So if the white people start saying to themselves “man, that seems kind of racist…” Then its probably pretty obvious that its racist.

    • Micky Baker

      No, the ideology has never been gone. When you have a person like Obama who doesn’t listen, a media that doesn’t actually report what is said by Obama’s opponents, you just don’t hear it. Thus, you come to believe that it’s racist. That’s your fault, not the Tea Party’s. Go to one. Learn for yourself. You won’t be lynched or insulted at Tea Party, but if you disagree with a Democrat, and you’re black, they’ll call you an Uncle Tom because you didn’t join the group think.

      • Chuckie Smith

        Of course you won’t be lynched at a TP event, it isn’t legal or PC. They are tolerant, but that is not the same as loving or even respectful. Most blacks that join the TP are not like “those other” blacks. They are usually the better ones. The kind that think Hootie and the blowfish are soulful. Most seem to be in interracial relationships.
        I don’t comment on the motives of whites because it would be ignorant since I do not know what it is to be white. Why is it so many whites have that inbred master mentality that makes them feel the need to explain how we think?
        I am a liberal but because I believe in self determination and rights for all and not the few. I believe a woman knows what is best for her body. I am reluctantly pro-choice because I do not feel I am the ruler of womanhood. Since I can’t have a child, I have no right to tell a woman what is best for her.
        Tea Partiers had problems with Obama and Kenya they over look with Cuban/Canadian Cruz. A man that hold duel citizenship with Canada to this day, born to a Cuban father on foreign soil. Canada is not a state.
        Tea Partiers believe in the Constitution up to the point that it supports the right to freedom of religion further than just being a Christian. Freedom to be Muslim, atheist, agnostic is frowned upon by Tea Baggers.

        • delahaya

          • powdereddonuts

            And more blacks kill whites than the other way around.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BX-7BlRc_a0 Greg4422

            lol…absolutely not true. The large majority of people kill where there live, blacks kill in black neighborhoods and whites kill white people neighborhoods, I live in a white beach community and white are killing each other regularly where I live I rarely see a black on black murder on my local news …and while the media will tell you there’s an epidemic of homicides in the black community in the inner cities…when you look at the FBI Crime Statistics data…you actually find the number of murders by whites across America and blacks is approximately even.

            FBI Crime Statistics Table 43

          • powdereddonuts

            It is absolutely true. Looking at the FBI numbers, 193 blacks were killed by whites in 2011. On the other hand, 448 whites were killed by blacks. Blacks also kill each other at a higher percentage than Whites kill whites. (90% of black murders are at the hands of other blacks, whereas 83% of white murders are committed by whites.) The numbers don’t lie.

            http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-6

          • Chuckie Smith

            Then per capita whites kill more blacks than black kill whites. If 448 out of 150 million gets killed, and 193 out of 13 million got killed, per capita the 448 was the lesser. 448 is 1 of 334.8 or so. The 193 represents one in every 67.4. More blacks were killed per capita by whites.
            Um, Powered, did you take college math yet?
            We have to get our numbers up before whites go out of season.

          • powdereddonuts

            Per capita blacks kill each other at a much more alarming rate.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            didn’t you just confirm what I said? 83%-90% of the time people murder others of their same race? Doesn’t 83%-90% equate to a majority? majority more than 50%? SMDH

          • powdereddonuts

            My point was that blacks victimize whites more so than whites victimize blacks. Blacks also kill each other by like 7-8 percentage points higher than whites kill whites.

            Basically, we are more likely to kill a fellow black person than a white person is to kill a fellow white person.

            I’ll grant you that a white person is more likely to kill a white or that a black person is more likely to kill a black (matter of geography), but the fact is a black is more likely to kill a black than a white person is to kill a white.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            You’re only talking 7%…83% vs 90%

          • powdereddonuts

            7% is 7%. Why is it higher?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            72% of sex offenses are committed by white males
            68% of child molestations are committed by white males
            63% of aggravated assaults are committed by white males
            all of which are also violent crimes

            Not to mention 66% of burglaries, 68% of Larceny-Thefts, 72% of arsons, 65% of other assaults, 65% of forgeries, 65% of frauds,65% of embezzlements are all committed by whites…do you see a pattern here?

          • powdereddonuts

            Whites do account for 77% of the population.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            I don’t think that’s correct…if blacks are 13% and Hispanics are 16% and Asians are 2%…thats 31%…so whites can’t be no more than 69% of the population.

            So are you implying that whites 69% of the population is “approximately equal to them committing 68% of all crimes in the US?

            Because I can very easily show you that while blacks are 13% of the population that they commit “approximately” 13% of all crimes committed in the US, which also is consistent with they’re population numbers…do you know what else that would show? that 77% of black people are law abiding US citizens.

          • powdereddonuts

            The number is 63% when white latinos aren’t counted. At any rate, looking at those same murder numbers, blacks accounted for 48% of those murders while only making up around 13% of the population.

            http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000.html

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            That’s 48% of the 8,341 murders committed. The population number is 13% of 310 Million = 23,846,153 black people. Of those 23 million…they committed 4,149 murders…which is less than 1% of 23 million

          • powdereddonuts

            Come on man it’s pretty simple math. Given those 2011 FBI murder numbers, there were 6,131 murders in total. Of those 6,131, 2,958 were committed by people who only make up 13% of the population. 2,958 is 48% of the murder total for that year.

            You are comparing it to the entire population, which will of course make the number small. Thankfully so. However, comparing it to the entire POPULATION of murders, blacks commit a DISPROPORTIONATE amount of the murders in this country. Using those same numbers. Whites committed LESS TOTAL murders than blacks. That’s crazy when you think about how many more it is of them that have the potential to commit murder.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            lol…at least here you get my point…in compariosn to the total number of black people in the US…only a small percentage commit violent crimes….but you’re trying to use those numbers to make “all” black people seem like criminals…when thats simply not true…..thats all I’m saying

          • powdereddonuts

            I never said “all” black people. I’m black. I don’t even have a speeding ticket let alone a homicide on my record. I’m just pointing out the fact that in comparison to whites, BLACKS are MORE LIKELY TO COMMIT MURDER.

            You might not like it, but it is what it is.

          • powdereddonuts

            Greg, you are being purposely dense. However you slice it, blacks only account for 13% of the population, yet commit 48% of the murders. Using your weird metric, that “less than 1%” is still WAAAY higher than whites.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            lol it’s not a weird metric at all…that 48% is 48% of the crimes committed not 48% of the population…I know you understand what I’m saying you’re doing the opposite of what I did to make the number look small…you’re confusing 2 different statistics, 48% of the crimes committed and 13%( the black population) to make that 48% seem huge. But you never explain how that 48% of 6,131 murders (your figure)…relate to the 13% or(40 million black people in the US)…not to mention you’re stuck on just murders and not any of the other violent crimes i mention above…where whites far exceed any other race…rape, assault, and child molestation…how convenient.

            Anyway…I think we’ve exhausted this subject…fun debate :)…and yes I understand “per their percent of the population blacks commit a disproportionate amount of homicides, but as I’ve also said this is due to poverty, social condition and being packed into dense public housing…and not race.

            Whats always lost in these debates is consideration for the victims….(if I use your number) whites are 63% of the population and committed at least 48% of the homicides as well, thats some 3,000 people killed across America….but somehow these never gets any attention…it’s only black on black homicides, in the inner cities, that are seen as a problem.

          • powdereddonuts

            “Consideration of the victims” isn’t “lost on me”. It’s precisely why I looked at homicides. I mean what’s the worst thing you would want to have happen to you?

          • powdereddonuts

            Blacks make up 13% of the population but are the perps in what % of the murders?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WH1Bsdzh7A Greg4422

            But to answer your question of why it’s higher…it’s higher due to poverty, congested public housing, lack of education and job opportunities…in short it’s higher due to extraneous social and economic reasons…not race.

          • Chuckie Smith

            Mainly because per capita there are more whites available to murder than other blacks. Its about target selection. Whites are in season more often because there is an over population of them. oh I kid, but its true. Plus white meat is richer in protein and lower in fat than dark meat.

          • Kevin Dragotta

            Wait… what?! How is this relevant to anything he just said!? Way to not follow the conversation. You need to run for office, because your a master of the Tea Party feint as I like to call it.

          • Chuckie Smith

            I totally agree with you and would add. I have been called ni33er almost exclusively by blacks and find it more demeaning than when I was called that by whites growing up in rural Mississippi in the 60’s and 70’s.
            It is a shame so many black radio stations play songs by black artist that use that word and words demeaning black people, women, and children. Lyrics that celebrate gang violence and drugs culture.
            My kettle is black and I know this. My point is that too many black people still think small. Obama is the first black President. Bush was the 40th white President. You would think we could have this discussion about the efficacy of a black POTUS after we have had a dozen or so more.
            This would be like giving one group 40 chances to get a process down pat and they still have flaws but are not seen in a terrible light. Then passing the torch to another group and on their first try, you say never again. Where is the fair play in that.
            Next we will have a woman at the helm. Will women get 44 tries as men have before we try to demean them as the worst after the first one?
            Some of us are incapable of a sense of fair play.

          • Chuckie Smith

            delahaya, that is true. As well, more whites kill their own family members than any other race. More white commit suicide than any other race. Whites make up the largest population of serial killers, mass murderers and pedophiles than all other races combined. So what is your point about black on black violence in relationship to what I said?
            Look up the website for the law firm listing the “Perversion files”. It lists the names of former and current boy scout leaders by state, that committed sexual acts against boys scouts dating back to the 50’s. The 50s mind you when blacks and other minorities where not allowed to even join.
            You do not need to kill a human to do them the worst harm. Some things we live through are worse than death itself. death is final and natural no matter the means causing it. Being molested is not natural and the sufferings do not end until death.

          “Why is it so many whites have that inbred master mentality that makes them feel the need to explain how we think?”

          Chuckie. You have a big problem. You’re a big time bigot.

          If you believe that self determination and rights are for all, and not the few, how can you even pretend that liberalism adheres to that?

          Ted Cruz was born to parents who are citizens, and you do know that no matter where they’re born, that is NATURAL BORN. You’re completely off your rocker.

          • Chuckie Smith

            I am in deed a bigot, but that does not mean I have the power or desire to discriminate against any one or group for any reason. I am a product of American culture which by its very nature creates bias and bigotry by practice and law.
            I guess you never heard anyone malign Obama as being a communist or Muslim. In America, you have an exclusive right to be a Muslim if you choose.
            My point is that where is all of the furor over Ted Cruz being born abroad as we saw with the assertion that Obama was born in Kenya. His mom is a US Citizen as was Rafael Cruz’s mom. His name is Rafael, not Ted. Ted is used to soften the tone of his name and not make it seem so minority like. Like an Indian customer service person answering for ATT from India using the name Bob rather than Mujibur.
            Liberalism does adhere in as much as a group can. We are not an amalgam. GOP is not made up of conservatives, but conservatives, moderates and liberals as well. I am a moderate, not liberal. Democratic party is made up of conservatives, moderates and liberals, not just the one.
            Good try to evade the question though.

      • Kevin Dragotta

        I would probably agree with you, IF I only followed liberal media outlets, but I don’t. I am a “true” conservative, and because of that, I give no one outlet my blind trust. I follow both conservative and liberal sources and will find my own information when possible. Because of this, I don’t sit here an regurgitate the same lines that have been shoved down the conservative base’s throat for the past 8 years. This line right here “The liberal media doesn’t tell you what Really going on” tells me that you know even less than any liberal media viewer. You know why? Because your position is “I don’t know what stuff is said because no one tells us, but I know a guy who knows another guy who got the full story, and he said we are not hearing everything” I don’t stand with the Republican party because their “nice” or “tolerant” to others. I do it because I hold conservative values in my politics.

    • powdereddonuts

      Blacks have been conditioned to believe everything is racist. To our own detriment. Tell me, what party benefits more from it?

      • Chuckie Smith

        Dass Rassissss! The political machine only appears to the general public to be separate. Sort of like the court system. You have a defense attorney (officer of the court), a district attorney and prosecutors (also officers of the same court) and a judge (presides over that same court).
        One team with three heads, but still one team that all go home at the end of the day or to the same bar together for a drink to salute the victor. Why you crazy kook, I will get you next time. Great strategy Tad, didn’t see that coming. My guy is going away for a long time. See you in court…. high five.
        Any American that thinks one party cares more than the other is insane. They put on a good public front, but they each have their hand down the back of our pants knuckle deep. Corn just mixing.

    ted cruz IS A COMMUNIST MOLE…SECRETLY TRAINED TO INFILTRATE THE republican PARTY…TO BRING IT DOWN…AND WITH IT…AMERICA’S TWO-PARTY SYSTEM.

    • Michael Lawrence

      Speaking of communists…have you taken a look at Obama’s policies? Now there is a true communist.

      • Chuckie Smith

        I notice the word community in the word communist. Most of you that toss this word around have never seen outside of our borders least of all an actual communist country. I went into East Germany before the wall fell and after as a member of the U.S. Army. It is more than dramatic to compare us to communism.
        Socialism? If you are against it, when you reach 62 or 67, tell the social security dept. you only want to withdraw the monies you actually contributed plus a nominal interest you may have accrued had you invested it. Do not accept the portion the government subsidizes, that is socialism. Also, make sure you never use Medicaid/care past the contributions you made to it. They send out a statement detailing your actual contributions.
        That is how hypocrisy works. Bite the hand that feeds you ungratefully. Obama signs into law policies the Senate and House construct and forward to him for signature. His is a signature, no more. POTUS is not a legislator, but an executive. He is the singular embodiment of the will of the winners and the losers will always align themselves up against the winner.

        • Michael Lawrence

          Well, Chuckie, there is a lot wrong with your statements. First off, I’d be glad to accept only what I put into social security and medicare if becomes privatized and what I put in stops subsidizing those that are already receiving benefits from this system. These systems have been set up as Ponzi schemes….the generation receiving benefits did pay in, but not the total amount that is being paid out to them, so the next generation is subsidizing their benefit. Privatize the entire system, let me invest my social security money and let me hang on to my medicare money to put into a lock box medical savings account to be drawn from like medicare. Believe me, I can invest my money far better than the government can.
          And my retirement age….is 68…there are fewer in my generation subsidizing the older generation that our retirement age has been bumped back and the generation after mine I think has been bumped back to 70.
          Obamacare…..yes, it passed the legislature and was signed into law. It passed the legislature with absolutely zero Republican votes passing it. It passed with back room shady deals to get enough Democrats on board that train to get it to pass and then it barely passed. True enough, it passed the legislature packed with as much pork as the legislature could fit into that bill. If Obama, the president, is not a legislator why did he change the law with executive orders? This is against the constitution and his changes should be challenged in court. Speaking of winners…the Republicans in the House won the majority solely based on their opposition to Obamacare and then they retained that majority and gained seats in the Senate in a second election. They too are considered winners and they won based on opposition to Obamacare. They are legislators and unlike Obama they have actually made efforts to keep their campaign promises. Imagine that…an explanation of why Harry Reid and Obama completely oppose everything coming out of the Republican majority House…they have aligned themselves against the House winners. Also, maybe you haven’t noticed, but Obamacare is another subsidy that many have to pay.

          Obama was raised by his communist grandparents, his mother was a communist, his mentor was a communist, Obama joined the socialist part and signed a candidate contract with that party before he ran for the Illinois legislature and every policy he suggests are socialist at best, communist at worst. Somehow, with his background, this does not surprise me. I did not compare us to communists, I did not even compare Obama to communists, I outright called him a communist. He is a communist.
          As far as the words community and communist sounding alike…you really need to break out a dictionary.

          I too have been to former communist countries and I can tell you from my experience, the people in these countries are far better off being capitalists than communists…I imagine those of the former East Germany are also better off today living in the unified capitalist Germany. Have you been back the former East Germany lately?

        • powdereddonuts

          I’d love to be able to invest the money the government forceably takes from my paycheck and invest it the way I see fit. I doubt the returns would be “nominal”. I can assure you it won’t be my social security that allows me to live comfortably in retirement. Thankfully so.

    In reply to: delahaya comment’s a post’s

    I not only have the courage to look them up, I also have enough courage to do the same as you do, I wake up with energy in enthusiasm and face my day, only to be greeted by people like you who don’t recognized are appreciate my participation in this society. I also like you pay those ridiculous taxes, and No! toilet paper doesn’t spool off my roll, and wipe my behind ether. And unlike you I have been the victim of racial profiling, and since I’m also in my 50’s I’ve personally have seen and felt an heard how racist effected my life, my oldest brother was murder, for simply trying to go to college. My mother also had a brother who was pulled out of their home in east Texas and lynched, because he wanted to sell apples, from the back of his wagon. So don’t you ever ask me to have the courage to look up numbers sir. I don’t care If a person is Republican, or Democrats because we are all suited to our own conscious, and it’s my conscious that disagree’s strongly with Mr. Jackson saying that we need a “White Republican President in the likes of Ronald Reagan”, you see I remember his (Reagan’s) policies personally, and he’s so-called trickle down theory (Voodoo Economics) , never ever trickle down to me and other poor people, not only blacks. I also witness and heard the whole Iran/Contra trail, and when Oliver North stood up, and said that he thought using the the Ayatollah’s money was a “neat idea”, and we would also learn later that he fashioned a deal “Drugs for arms”, while Ronald Reagan and he’s first lady motto, are anthem was “Just Say No” while they through their CIA cohorts’ pumped drugs into all of America inner cities, to support a war that congress didn’t want or approve of, yes didn’t you know that Ronald Reagan was the author of the “Drive by?” People like you make me sick sir.

    • Micky Baker

      It’s satire man. It isn’t the 1960’s any more.

    • delahaya

      And yet you still won’t face the facts or acknowlege them. I put out a lot, but here is the core – black unemployment and poverty is significantly higher under Obama than either Bush or Reagan. Why? Is Obama’s white half racist do you think?
      Instead of facing those you tell your family’s story? Know what, that is awful and I hate it. Know what else? Neither I nor any of the Tea Party leadership had anything to do with it.
      Sadly, you then start citing all the urban myths I referred to earlier in a post. You are one of the black being manipulated and stirred up and used by the liberal elite. Let me tell you – they think even less of you than you just mistakenly think I do.

    • Allen

      Let’s not leave out these facts showing the record and sentiments of a “White Republican” (Reagan) president;

      -Reagan vetoed The Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1988 (Congress overrode the veto).

      -Reagan opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964

      -Reagan opposed the 1965 Voting Rights Act. He later called it “humiliating to the South” and as president, Reagan sought to weaken it.

      -Reagan opposed California Fair Housing Act. When campaigning for governor, Reagan told a crowd, “If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it’s his God-given right to do so.”

      – When the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapped Patty Hearst in Berkeley and demanded the distribution of food to the poor, Reagan joked, “It’s just too bad we can’t have an epidemic of botulism.”

      -Reagan’s “tall tales” of a “young buck” (a derogatory term for black men) using his food stamps to buy T-bone steaks and to northern audiences he spoke of the apocryphal story of the “Cadillac-driving” Chicago welfare queen.

  • Chuckie Smith

    Historically, the white world has always loved a good boy. I am sure Kevin Jackson is comfortable with being seen as one of the better ones. Being told he isn’t like “those other” black people. Then he goes home, and no matter how hard he scrubs, the scent of his self loathing cannot be washed away.
    Watch the movie Jango Unchained. The character played by Samuel L. Jackson comes to mind. We don’t need to stay on the plantation or accept welfare to make it. Who cares about the unemployment rate? Only people too afraid of personal responsibility worry about what is going to be provided for them. The rest of us go out and get it for ourselves. There is no “bad economy”. Just opportunities to explore what we are capable of in a new and changing economy.
    We do have the right to pursue happiness. We are not entitled to have it handed to us. But we do not need to pick our President based upon the his color or lack thereof. How about we pick them based upon our understanding of his platform and his ability to translate his talking points into policies that work. Not for all, but the greater good.
    Good thing all whites are rich and doing well as a result of our last white president.

    • powdereddonuts

      Perhaps your comparison to Django is apt. While Sam Jackson’s character lived rather comfortably and his “master” heeded his advice, the rest lived rather poorly as field slaves. That’s sort of how I see blacks who religiously align themselves with democrats.

      Great observation.

      • Chuckie Smith

        Not blacks who religiously align themselves with democrats, but government handouts and religion itself.
        Master did not heed Steven other than that Steven provided useful info on what the Kneegras where saying behind massas back.
        That is not the same as trusted, liked, or respected. Even the house kneegra was a kneegra and no better. He is seen by the master as Snowden is seen by Putin. Once Snowden is of no more political use to Putin, he will be locked up in plain site, or have some unfortunate accident. He is good for propaganda right now. Hate to be him once he has used up his material.

        • powdereddonuts

          I agree with you on the handouts and religion. In a lot of ways, I think religion is used to manipulate black people. That said, I felt like Jackson’s character was respected by DiCaprio’s character. As much respect as a slave could be awarded I guess.

  • Rocky Ford

    Satire? That’s what I’m to believe Mr. delahaya comments and direct challenges were to me and others satire? Well I am going to have to disagree with you Mr. Baker, and as for it not being the 1960’s anymore, sir I’m not deluded in form or shape about what decade that I”m living in, but I am a student of history. As the saying goes those that don’t remember their history, or at risk of repeating it sir. It’s funny how life present’s itself, here we all are in the millennium an yet we still have to “look backwards to face forward”, just recently we witness the so-called “Tea Party” members flying confederate flag’s in front of the white house, but at the same time calling themselves a Patriots, my question is Patriots of what? Because as a American what comes to mind when I see white people proudly flying those colors is a segregated south, and is more akin to the White Supremacist movement or the KKK, and no it’s not the 1960’s or even the 1600’s, but as a black person it sort a set’s the tone for how I’m going to deal with you, and makes them “strange bedfellows”.

    • delahaya

      Rocky, there are a lot more hammer and sickle and communist paraphanelia and symbols in a Democrat or Occupy rally. Hate you can’t face up the simple facts like the fact black unemployment and poverty is significantly higher under Obama than Bush or Reagan.

    • powdereddonuts

      I recall the media covering a Tea Party rally where they showed a member of the crowd with a semi-automatic weapon. Funny thing is they never showed the guy, just the gun. The reason why is because the guy was black. The media wanted to portray the crowd as being “extremist” and white. It’s obvious you guys buy into the hype. Sad. Tea Party could benefit from a more diverse membership, but the dems have black people on lock down. Must be that push to legalize all of Mexico’s poor so blacks can have more competition for already scarce jobs?

      • Chuckie Smith

        And what is your problem with competition? Capitalism thrives when we compete. We have advances in technology as the result of competition.

        • powdereddonuts

          Capitalism thrives, but black people already dependent on social programs only become more dependent. Got to take care of home first before we take care of Mexico.

  • Tree Top flyer

    Samm_one, Are you serious? The facts are virtually everywhere, but since you are enamored with this Clown Obama, and in denial, let me refresh your memory: Auto industry bail out; Cash for Clunkers; Solendra, the sale of automatic weapons to Drug cartels in Mexico. the deaths of Navy SEALS after the killing of Osama Bin Ladin, The total dissolution of any semblance of the former NASA, Benghazi, No budget during the entire time this moron has been in office; Hiring muslims as Czars, Listening to complete communists like Valarie Jarrett, setting race relations back fifty years, and lastly OBAMACARE, to name a few!!!
    You are either a mindless sheep who can’t think for them selves, and voted for this unqualified scum bag, simply because he is HALF BLACK, or you are an uninformed fool, who didn’t question his qualifications, his citizenship, education, or any part of a normal “Presidential vetting”, and voted for him because he appeared to be “cool”, and could read a “Teleprompter” real good.

  • Rosby Lee Jr.

    Instead of pushing through
    our racial issues and tensions this guy just wants to push the reset
    button to a time where whites don’t have to think about anyone else.
    The only reason there isn’t more dialouge is because most whites on the republican side and many on the democrat side don’t really want to talk about it. They just wanted to skip to post racial with Obama’s election. No work to get there. Then have the nerve to act surprised that we had these issues. Yes. Many Blacks are not doing their best in holding Obama accountable
    but there are things to work out on ALL sides. So everyone has to work
    to grow in a very important way: Mentally. And that is always a struggle
    for groups. This guy’s argument? America needs Jim Crow and slavery
    back too because it’s all about appeasing the majority. Yes, Blacks have a lot of work to do internally. No duh but to give whites a pass because they don’t know and don’t care how our social structure is built because they never had to give a crap is bogus. And…blacks have complained. All over the place. It’s just they also see the racism at work to because they are encountering much of the same treatment at their level. Stop trying to say it’s just a one sided thing. It’s not. Its all sides. Tons of work to do. Time to grow America.

    • powdereddonuts

      You obviously have a reading comprehension problem. Seems to me he wants a white president simply because we can discuss issues without having to bring racism into the equation. Now, any opposition to or criticism of Obama is obviously “racist”.

      It’s getting tired, even for a black guy like myself.

      • Chuckie Smith

        Yours is an attribution error. He thinks race just became an issue post Obama election. If it goes back white male, women’s issues will once again be the issue. The solution to not discussing race is more complex than electing only whites.

  • Allen

    Not even a good try dude, your logic is tragically flawed. Your argument is that blacks have done worse economically and socially under an Obama presidency, than under a white republican. History does not bear these as facts. First off, median household income for all races has been falling in the US for 10 years. (Fact Check: US Census Bureau). Secondly, with the lingering effects of historical marginalization, when considered as a whole, (outside of Native Americans) Blacks have always been at or near the bottom rung of the socioeconomic ladder. Third, because of the battles fought during the Civil Rights era, particularly in education, a considerable amount of blacks have benefited economically. Also bear in mind that it was a “white Democrat” president that made those advances possible.

    Therefore, just in citing those three historical “FACTS”, your premise of a “white Republican” as being “best” makes absolutely no sense. It makes no sense because there have been 18 Republicans, 15 Democrats, 4 Democratic-Republicans, 4 Whigs, 1 Federalist, and 1 No Party. White Republicans have already had 18 try’s, 3 more than Democrats! A white Republican hasn’t cured the woes. And, as you and Real Clear Politics has so dutifully pointed out, a white republican has yet to end the socioeconomic problems that have plagued blacks as a whole.

    With concern to your flawed logic, wouldn’t it have made better sense to say; “Okay we’ve tried a black president, let’s try something else.. something new!” How about an article titled, “America Needs a Muslim Republican President?” Or a “Homosexual Republican President?” How about a “Black/Hispanic Muslim Homosexual Woman Republican?” But I really don’t see you agreeing with either of those scenarios. Si I’ll just go with your assertion that “having a white Republican president is best for the country.” So it’s obvious to me (in your mind) only a “white Republican” will do. However in seeing through your convoluted mush of idiotic reasoning, I would prefer you simply be honest and straight forward. The title of your piece “is what it is” and says it all. There was no need to attempt to rationalize your position by hiding behind a narrative on the plight of black America. You like and respect white Republicans! Fine, okay by me! But just say it and leave it at that.

    • KSDelgado

      historical fact check–the Democrats were the ones who opposed the civil rights movements, just as they opposed freeing the slaves 150 years ago.
      Second, being on “the bottom rung” does not mean that there was no improvement made.

      Re-read the bottom line of the article, where he wraps up his statements with one final point.

      “I long for the days of a white president, because under white presidents,
      at least black people had pride. Liberals have stolen pride from
      blacks, and they have no intention of giving it back.”

      Therein lies the problem.

      • Allen

        Historical fact check- Those racist Democrats were CONSERVATIVES!

        And being on the “bottom rung” is a position blacks never had a “choice” in, until the Civil Rights Movement began. Lets see here, Jim Crow was the law of much of land, from 1876 til the passage of the CRA. That’s almost a hundred years of legal segregation. After the passage of the CRA, by the mid 1970’s, we began to see the effects and it’s upward mobility for blacks. So, a little over 35 years have passed and… ‘viola’, a black president! So yes, there have been vast improvements. But wait… Mr. Jackson, “longs for the days of a white president, because under white presidents, at least black people had pride. That can only mean one thing. The pride that existed during the days of the Civil Rights Movement. When we were pleading for our “human” rights to live, work, play where we choose, and enjoy the same rights as every other American. We had pride in those days. However, we weren’t truly free.

        • James Azanza

          Oh for Pete’s sake…….you had pride in those days because you were actually MORE FREE!! Now you have to be a member of the liberal Democratic Party or at least support it or be branded a traitor, which is the height of bigotry and intolerance. You have to demonstrate when Jessie or Al say so. The worst thing a minority can do these days is be conservative or Republican. The left will come after you with a vengeance. Black Democrats……….the new slave masters who keep everyone on the plantation in line. Of course there is less pride nowadays! When you are treated like an idiot who cannot think for himself, what do you expect??

      • Chuckie Smith

        Kevin asserts to know all blacks as a pride less amalgam in need of a master to restore them with pride. What a coon.

    • John E. Jablonski

      Talk about missing the point.

      First of all, your Muslim Republican, Homosexual Republican, or Black/Hispanic Muslim Homosexual Woman Republican President would all be vilified by the Left, as un-authentic, or self-loathing, a race-traitor, Uncle Tom, token, etc.

      And if your Muslim, Homosexual, Hispanic, Woman President were a Democrat, we’d be back to any disagreement with said President is homophobic, anti-woman, racist, etc.

      So, yes, honest debates can only be had with a white Republican President.

      Tho the left will still scream, homophobia, racism, anti-woman, no matter what.

      • Allen

        Geeeezzz… talk about missing the point, which you totally have done. I preface my statement by stating that Jackson’s flawed logic would be more plausible had he made an argument for something that had not been tried. It’s not an opinion that blacks have been on the bottom of the American socioeconomic ladder since Lincoln freed the slaves. It’s an undeniable fact. Therefore, since there have been 18 “white Republican presidents, (and now a black Democrat) and blacks are still on the bottom, what makes him believe blacks would fare any better if either were done again? It is merely his “opinion”, or his “wanting and hopes” that a white Republican would be better for black people. Trying the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result… is the definition of what?

        Un-authentic, or self-loathing, a race-traitor, Uncle Tom, token, etc., you’re right. There are some on the Left that make those type of vile attacks on Republican/Conservative females and those of color. I’m one who says that they’re wrong and ignorant to do so. But yet again, you totally missed the point. Muslim’s and Homosexuals are vilified by the RIGHT! There’s no denying it. Blacks, Hispanics and women are often the targets from the right. Is it all or even most conservatives. I have no evidence to say that’s true. Moreover, I don’t think that all conservative are that way. Yet there are some very vocal opponents to Muslims, Gay’s, Blacks, Hispanics and women on the right. And there’s not denying that either.

    • powdereddonuts

      You do realize a larger percentage of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act than Democrats right?

      • Allen

        Yes. If it were not for the Republican vote, the CRA it wouldn’t have passed. It was the racist CONSERVATIVE Democrats, most of them being in the south, that were against it. You know about the racist CONSERVATIVE democrats don’t you? Ronald Reagan was one until 1962. Reagan was publicly vocal in his opposition to Civil Rights for blacks. Reagan said;”if an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.”.
        By the time the CRA passed Reagan was a Republican,yet he was still against it.

        • powdereddonuts

          You made a point to say it was a white democrat president who made it possible, yet he can’t pass any legislation without congress first creating it and then voting on it. Republicans were just as much a part of that legislation becoming law as democrats.

          • Imhotep40

            100% of Southern Republicans voted against
            98% of Southern Democrats voted against

            So utilizing some semblance of rational logic, what side of the political spectrum or social ideology (irrespective of party affiliation) would you place these legislators who ended-up on the wrong-side of history?

          • James Azanza

            Overall, a greater percentage of Republicans voted to pass it than did Democrats, look it up. LBJ could not have passed it without Republican help as his own party did not give him enough votes. He was grateful to the GOP for that. In history, there is a term used to describe the racist, Democrat controlled south: THE SOLID SOUTH, indicating that the south was solidly under the control of Democrats. So the 100% of Southern Republicans you cite was a very small number while the 98% of Democrats you cite was a very large number. Republicans were a rarity in the South in those days. They represented the yankee North in the eyes of Southerners.

          • Chuckie Smith

            James have you ever looked at the chances of an Asian getting elected to the Whitehouse or do you really believe race is not factored in? Lemme know when you come up with it.
            The pecking order is white male, black male, white woman, white male from then on.
            No Asians, no Mexicans, oh hell no Arabs or Middle Easterners until Christ comes back. (Jesus was just a guy with influence. Christ isn’t real unless you hit your thumb with a hammer. {jesus Christ} Just tossed that in there for giggles).

            Both Parties decide this together because they are made up of the people, by the people. Now the Mexicans have a shot but while their numbers are growing, their voting numbers are still not as good as they could be.
            Once n DC all elected officials are on the same side behind closed doors. Good cop bad cop, like two parents that run circles around the kids playing good mom bad dad.

          • powdereddonuts

            There was a grand total of ELEVEN Southern Republicans in both houses of congress at that time. Democrats controlled the south in the 60s. The beloved Democratic Senator Byrd was a member of the KKK.

          • Imhotep40

            What’s your point? They were Dixicrats/blue-dog Democrats that held a conservative political and social ideology, unlike today’s center-left DNC. Lincoln Republicans were also considered center-left in the 1860’s. The problem is the RNC ois being dragged farther right by a minority of Tea Party influence, which isn’t where the majority of Americans stand politically.

          • powdereddonuts

            My point was pretty clear: the Civil Rights act had more support from Republicans than it did democrats.

          • Imhotep40

            Your point ignores political ideology

          • powdereddonuts

            What was the original point? That republicans had nothing to do with the passing of the law. It was a lie. He said nothing of “ideology”, only that it was because of a DEMOCRAT president that it became law.

          • Imhotep40

            That was an incorrect premise, conservative ideology “had nothing to do with the passing of the law” is a more correct statement, political party affiliation had nothing to do with it. The Democrat in the White House was ideologically center-left and signed the bill into law, rather than veto it. Republicans and Democrats in Congress “WORKED TOGETHER” to write and pass the legislation (i.e. center-right/center-left ideologues). So technically “it was because of a DEMOCRAT president that it became law.” is a true statement. . . . .

          • powdereddonuts

            Pretty convenient you can put words in somebody else’s mouth.

          • Imhotep40

            How old are you? Not having a response or counter reply and then resorting to disingenuous intellectual tactics and characterizations that have nothing to do with the debate at hand is juvenile and lazy. . . . not convenient, just victorious perhaps?

          • powdereddonuts

            Who are you to put words in someone else’s mouth? It’s a pretty simple question.

          • Imhotep40

            What words have I placed in the mouth of another? More importantly MY WORDS speak for themselves, so why can’t you answer to me, since we’re having the conversation?

          • powdereddonuts

            The original poster said it was passed because of a “Democrat”. He said nothing about ideology.

            OK, but then we started an exchange, where ideology was discussed, my words no one else. I also confirmed that his statement was technically accurate due to a Democrat Administration residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. signing it into law.

            It wasn’t “technically” accurate because a president can’t sign any laws that weren’t FIRST passed by congress. And the bill had plenty of REPUBLICAN support. A point the original poster and democrats have always tried to obscure. I called him out on it.

            Not sure what “democrats” you’re referring to, because the party that was pro Jim Crow and pro slavery was the Democrats, Dixie-crats, Southern Blue-Dog Democrat Party . . . . . call them DINO’s or whatever you want, but ideologically they were CONSERVATIVE and didn’t support Civil Rights! No obscuring of facts, but irrespective of what Congress passes it’s not a law until the Executive (who happened to be a Democrat) signs it. If he elects to veto the Bill, then it’s another Congressional process to override said veto. . . . . still not obscured, but there is such a thing as an Executive Order.

            Are you kidding me? It takes two branches of government to create law.

          • Imhotep40

            Didn’t say it didn’t, what I said was that an Executive Orders are a means of delegated legislation or law that doesn’t require Congressional action. The Judiciary would probably weigh-in, but Congress would be a bystander in the process.

            Look up the Emancipation Proclamation, which came before the 13th Amendment passed by Congress

          • powdereddonuts

            If only the civil rights act could have been passed by executive order.

          • Imhotep40

            OK, now you’re just being dense

          • Imhotep40

            Small wonder, but the Federal Government and it’s military were segregated and equitable in employment and promotion long before the civil rights act was signed into law by a reformed Democrat President. But you knew that right, you know that executive orders only apply to administration of governmental entities, those who choose to contract with said government and the execution of existing laws of the land subordinate to our Constitution?
