African Americans for Obama - What would the media think of Whites for Romney or Crackers for Gingrich?

bones327 2012/03/03 13:31:44
In a move that can only be described as racist, obama has launched "African Americans For Obama." http://www.barackobama.com/african-americans/

Why do I call this racist? "How could you not?" would be a far better question. Think about it. The man is directly asking Americans, who happen to be black to vote for him, not because of what he has done, or what he will do, but simply because he is black like them. What an outcry there would be of Newt Gingrich started an organization of "Crackers for Gingrich?" Or, what if Santorum started "Honkies for Santorum?"

Can you hear their ads, if they were so foolish? "Vote for me, I am white like you." Why is this racist, if obama's "Vote for me, because I am black like you," isn't racist? The answer is "it is racist, no matter who does it."

Why is this blatant racist pandering not be called what it is by the media?

Watch the video. Though he is invoking the memory of Dr. King, he is arguing that blacks should vote for him because of the "color of his skin" not "for the content of his character."


I think Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be horrified at what has become of his "I have a Dream" speech's theme. I think obama is a rank racist and needs to be defeated.

What do you think?

    Doesn't everyone know by now that only White's are racist.

    Quite honestly it wouldn't go over too well and quite honestly African Americans for Obama doesn't sit too well with me either. What is this country coming to?

    Apparently our post-racial White House occupant thinks that African-Americans are very inclined to having a herd instinct and will respond well to a call for racist solidarity. I hope many black Americans have learned that a black President with very wrongheaded ideas and goals is not good for the USA and is not good for them and their children. Black American unemployment is huge after three years of Obama's anti-business efforts and there is little evidence that the long Democrat control of city schools is resulting in any recent improvements in those schools. Obama's favoring labor unions is not generally helpful to African-Americans either, since it diminishes the numbers of the employed and raises the prices of many goods and services. High taxes on the rich might sound good to many, but the rich are already paying very high taxes and therefore are hiring less. The rich are already over-regulated in their businesses and therefore are reluctant to hire. It is those most under-educated and most discriminated against who benefit the most when the economy is roaring and responsible workers or indeed any workers become more valuable. Obama has seen to it that this recession has just dragged on and on. Real per capita GDP is still 40% less (as of the 4th Quarter of 2011) than it was in the 4th Quarter of 2007. This is a four year long recession and recovery has stalled out, despite the many false claims made of improvement.

    you might want to read this article. It offers an important glimpse into the president's "economic theory."

    No doubt about it. Blacks are allowed to use racist phrasing. Like i have said over and over..blacks voted strictly and solely on race. What else was there about him that would cause someone to vote for him? No experience, accomplishments, foreign affair experience, no military, no economics..was only a jr senator that did nothing for his state.

    In fairness, the last thing Gingrich needs is more crackers.
