Was the election of Barack Obama racist?

steven 2012/07/02 22:28:36
YES! I say yes.

Was it about qualifications or race? Many whites voted for him to show they were beyond racism and inequality, which means their vote was inadvertently racist, trying to prove a point and get a pat on the back for their 'me too' actions. Many non-black minorities voted for him because they saw a possibility of amnesty for illegals, making it a race-based choice, as well. Ninety percent of blacks voted for him because they wanted a black president and thought it was 'making history'. That was a race-based choice, hands down. He was their new messiah. FEW voted for him because he is a communist or voted against him because he is a communist. FEW knew of that, because the media did not cover it and the people would not hear of it if they did. "Communism is dead, isn't it?" Not by a long shot. Ask the ex-Soviet spies. Ask anyone in Obama's cabinet.

I have been accused of being racist simply because I disagree with his ideology. Then let me go on record as despising his white half, too, if that will alleviate the charges against me (and I already know it will not). Haters need no reason or excuse to hate. Anytime they pull the race card, it is ALWAYS valid in their view. They have tunnel vision and see no other options. And if you disagree, you are a fool, wear a tin-foil hat and are a nut job of some variety other than their own. They should look in the mirror sometime when they are not pointing fingers at others.

The man HATES America. He has more than adequately shown that. Only the blind cannot see it and many are willfully blind or selectively blind or dyed-in-the-wool party hacks who do not and can no longer think for themselves. He has not kept his promises to bring home our troops (his 'first official act as president'). He has RE-signed the Patriot Attack, signed the NDAA, has authorized Hillary to sign away our right to bear arms under the UN Small Arms Treaty, has lied about the cost of Obamacare mandates (CBO says it is twice what he claims, at $1.76 BILLION over ten years). He surrounds himself with those proven to have no allegiance to America and his own upbringing shows he was mentored by Marxists. But the proof lies in doing the research, not in the MSM sound bites. Are YOU too lazy to do that research? Did YOU know the radio broadcasts were labeling him "...the most Socialist of all the Senate Candidates...." for Illinois? All they could see was that he was black and that was good enough for the under-educated and intellectually lazy. (I can hear you kicking over the hornet's nest now). A few of my black friends are honest enough to admit I am right. A long list of un-Constitutional acts (by MANY presidents) is easily found if one cares to know the truth. Most do not. It's easier to remain ignorant and just hope it all goes away. They deserve the slavery they get.

And in case you think I am excusing the GOP, I am not. They have forgotten their heritage and purpose and have joined the slavers and plantation masters. I despise them also. Every vulture has two wings and they are today known as Progressive Dems and RINO's.

We have one choice only: http://republicfortheunitedstates.org IF you will take time to study it and put down you beer and remote control long enough to survive. If not, do not blame those you think to be racists. You made your bed, now lie in it.
You!

    The country is racist. All you have to do to know that is to Google any first lady, other than Hilary Clinton, who herself is a politician, and then click on images, and look at how many sites denigrate and attack Michelle Obama. Interestingly enough, no Republican first ladies have been attacked with monster photos, and vampire photoshopped mess, for the most part only Democrat first ladies. What does that tell you on two levels. And Michelle Obama has been so thoroughly disrespected it is absurd. White first ladies, even Barbara Bush who visually might draw disrespect, gets to be human. But Michelle Obama is drawn like a monster, and all manner of insulting things. And you people wonder if Barack Obama's election was racist? Yes! The racists came out and have stayed out in droves, to disrespect him and his family! No doubt!

    Sorry, but he will NEVER be as destructive as George W. Bush who killed his own people in the Twin Towers, so that he could get the 52 billion dollars he needed to start a fake war, to look for his co-heart, who he could never find - Bin Laden- as a roos to go gun down and kill Sadam Hussein so he could take their oil and destroy that country, who he KNEW had nothing to do with 911, who he and his cronies fabricated a lie and carried out murder on those innocent people. I don't like everything Obama does, but not Walking or Riding, will he be the ass that W was, and still, even though she killed a man while drinking and driving when she was a teenager, and never went to jail, I don't think Laura Bush deserves to be denigrated the way that Michelle OBama has been. People who think that is right, are the ones who are destroying the nation almost single-handedly, because they believe that is okay, but that Bush made sense. Therefore they make more stupid, led by the ring n their nose choices.

    The stupid race card is overused to distract from Obama's incompetence.




    While President Obama has touted himself as a post-racial president, he has built a record demonstrating precisely the opposite. Is it Obama's bitterness, or is the incessant playing of the race card by him and many of his supporters merely calculated political exploitation -- or both?



    Let's look at a non-exhaustive list of examples since Obama took office.



    --Feb. 18, 2009: Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, accused the nation of being a nation of cowards on race.



    --April 2009: NewsBusters reported that at the behest of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters, Democratic Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein demanded a government inquiry into how the electronic Portable People Meter (used to measure radio ratings and which experts believe to be a far more reliable measure than the previous system) collects data. Obama's FCC indeed ordered an inquiry in the name of "diversity" because under the modern system, hip-hop ratings had declined and conservative talk ratings had increased.



    --May 2009: White House press secretary Robert Gibbs warned critics of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to measure their words carefully, implying they were race-based.

    --May 2009: White House press secretary Robert Gibbs warned critics of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to measure their words carefully, implying they were race-based.



    --May 2009: The Obama-Holder Justice Department dismissed a case against New Black Panther Party members for voter intimidation, even though it had already won the case. Former Justice lawyer J. Christian Adams said that the NAACP lobbied Obama to have the case dismissed and that the case was dismissed based on the Justice Department's outrageous policy of not prosecuting such cases against blacks when they involve white victims.



    --July 2009: Not having heard all the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police of "acting stupidly" in arresting a friend of his, Harvard professor Henry Gates, for disorderly conduct, dangling race as a motive for the arrest.



    --August 2009: The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights raised constitutional questions about the Obama administration's giving preferential treatment to minority students for scholarships and favoring medical schools that have records of sending graduates to areas with inadequate health care services.



    --September 2009: A video surfaced of Obama's "green jobs czar," Van Jones, saying, "You've never seen a Columbine done by a black child." It's "suburbanite white kids" who do it.



    --September 2009: Obama's FCC "diversity czar," Mark Lloyd, was seen on video saying, "There are few things, I think, more frightening in the American mind than dark-skinned black men." He also said, by the way, that the Fairness Doctrine wasn't enough to restore fairness to broadcasting. In 2005, Lloyd had complained that white Americans owned and controlled 98 percent of all federal broadcast licenses. Lloyd suggested at one point that white media executives should "step down" in favor of minorities.



    --September 2009: Politico reported that in a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, Obama "opened with a fiery civil rights talk, ticking off racial disparities, calling for greater enforcement of civil rights laws and saying that the new White House Office of Urban affairs is working to address inequality." He also compared Obamacare to the civil rights struggle.



    --October 2009: The Obama-Holder Justice Department overruled a decision by the city of Kinston, N.C., to do away with party affiliation of candidates in local elections, saying that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.



    --February 2010: After Obama had twice insulted Las Vegas and discouraged tourism there, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman strongly criticized him, which led Obama supporters to accuse Goodman of racism.



    --March 2010: The Obama administration filed a brief supporting racial preferences in university admissions.



    --March 2010: Rep. John Lewis alleged that tea party protesters hurled racial slurs, but videos of the alleged incident did not corroborate it, making many believe the charges were fabricated.



    --March 2010 -- The Rev. Jeremiah Wright said tea party opposition to Obamacare was based on hatred for "people of color." New York Times columnist Frank Rich made similar allegations.



    --April 2010: WorldNetDaily reported that Gerry Hudson, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, said white American workers are "so f---ing rabidly racist" their sentiments can be used to scare blacks into supporting comprehensive immigration reform.



    --April 2010: The Washington Examiner reported that a reporter asked a black protester whether he was "uncomfortable" as part of the tea party.



    --Then there's the administration's playing the race card against Arizona's non-racial-profiling law, Obama's suggesting al-Qaida is racist, Obama's saying Israel is suspicious of him because of his middle name -- as opposed to his horrendous policies toward it -- and the NAACP's calling the tea party racist and then denying it.



    It turns out that others are noticing this above-described phenomenon, as well, as a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll revealed that fewer and fewer people believe Obama's presidency has advanced racial relations -- 4 in 10, compared with 6 in 10 when he was inaugurated.



    This is a very sad turn of events in this nation.

    You just don't get it. On this thread, YOU are the one who keeps bringing up race, and blaming unrelated people for using it, like you are, and attributing it to Obama. That is what is racist.

They've done studies and found it to be absolutely the truth. I know and have seen black men driving down the highway, doing 65, when they pass a white woman doing 60, and she looked over at two black men in the front seat (I was in the back) and LOCKED the door!

Read Crucible of Race by Dr. Joel Williamson, if you really want to begin to understand how it works. Stop looking at it from the same angle all the time and try and new angle. Your thinking is limited, but you believe it is not.

    To make it simpler for you, if you can refer to a person like say Mila Kunis as dark skinned, and that makes sense to you, you are racist. People, as in human beings, come in colors ranging from blue black to paper white. But so many white people only mean the range that white people come in when they refer to such descriptions, which is the only way that saying that she is "dark skinned" which she is often referred to as such. The racist problem with that, is it presumes that "people" means WHITE people and their color ranges, not all people. Which by omission means that Black or dark people, don't even count in the same category as people. That is racist!

    Till you get that, clearly, Obama is probably going to stay president! It is time for the world to look at their ignorance, and change. You think he was talking about political change with that slogan? Think again. God has stepped into this arena and put him in a situation that will force people to pay attention to their own deep rooted prejudices and hatreds. Got very little to do with Obama. Wake up man! Wake up! This is a nation of cowards on the race issue, so cowardly that they can't even see it for what it is, and they keep screaming that somehow, everyone else is offending them! You think you are sick of hearing it? You can take it to the bank that every time I hear some white person, and that's all I've ever heard do that, refer to a Mila type as dark skinned, I want to slap them, but have held my thoughts, usually for years, mostly because that kind of ignorance is also thin skinned, and ALWAYS figures out how to be offended, like you're doing.

    I believe we got the only one who could have made it to office, meaning black president, and that it is and was absolutely essential that he made it to office for two reasons. First, to put a mirror up in white people's faces, and all the rest of us to watch and comprehend, to let sane white people begin to recognize how truly racist so many systems and systems of thoughts are in this country, and this world. I don't believe that many could have seen it without the reflection because the practices have been so heavily engrained into every day life. I am encouraged by those who do see it more clearly now, because they have abandoned many of those practices, and are fighting to make sure they don't happen again, based upon race. Just the racists responses to him, have made decent people look at their own racism and distance themselves from the practices. Secondly, he had to win because the world is changing, and whites, who make of 1/4th of the world's population, WILL NOT be in power in another 100 years, and racism will not be the method used to maintain that power, and rather than it being a shock to whites AND/OR the rest of the world's population, a mixed race man in that office is essential for the transition, and easing into a different state of mind.

What he does, politically, is far less important. They are all following a script of sorts, but he will lessen the revolution, much like changing the presidency in South Africa did in ending the damage of Apartheid, because had there not been that change, white were about to be massacred there, as 3/4ths of the population was sick and tired of being abused and destroyed by 1/4th of the population. It was an indicator, a pre-cursor of the times we are in now. 3/4ths of the worlds population is sick of 1/4th of the population beating them down into the ground, taking all their resources and destroying them in order to have power. Believe it. Obama is the ONLY choice for this transition period. He is not destroying America. He is saving white lives, and those who would destroy them before allowing this insane, and now self destructive to even the oppressor, oppression to continue. If you don't get that, that's okay, God does. That is why no matter what, Obama will win. It is time for that change. And though he is likely to do a lot wrong, the damage control for the big picture is still better than what I suspect Romney will do, because he is the KING of the oppressive systems that must be stopped, if we are all to live. You'd better hope he wins, because this is a whole lot bigger than you apparently thing, and that ain't "slick talk" just reality. Romney will incite riots. Obama is more workable, but agreed, should be watched, as they all should, and not just given carte blanche.

    There are blacks who voted for obama tht will vote democrat every time. There are many who want the handouts to keep coming. Also the large amount that came out was cleary because obama is half negro. More blacks cant tell you a damn thing about obama other than "he wants change" while many white people who supported mccain at least knew something about him.

    You had enough self hating white people with no pride in their heritage who gave him most of the moeny to run and helped him win. He got less than 40% of the white vote he does not win in 2008.

    You are a racist, because you are a racist. If you were not, all of the decent points you made, most of which are true though some are slanted and skewed by your racism, would not have been presented under the same "race card" you accuse others of using. Yes, you are racist. And yes, the business of politics and the selling off of all parts of freedom is an abomination. The division caused by pseudo intellectuals like you, who don't understand that race is a tool to keep us separated so we don't figure out race is not the issue, but that we need to rebel against the robber barons and wealthy crooks, is the real atrocity!
