Politics ... religion ... all the same; one group basing their claims of superiority over other groups on things that were written by people long dead.

Finally a bit of honesty if nothing else.


I was shocked when I read that, but then I did a little more digging. He didn't actually say they didn't care, he said that they probably were already voting for Obama.

But Obama is no more clean of hands than Romney. Obama's DOJ has refused to prosecute racially based crimes against whites, Obama's DOJ refused to prosecute black panthers who threatened to kill George Zimmerman (regardless of what he did, two wrongs don't make a right)

The Democratic party and news media attacked the black female Republican from Utah, they attacked Herman Cain.

Until we check racism from both the left and right, nothing will change.

I heard a speaker discussing how diversity in the 21% century has to include whites or your going to get things like angry white men. He discussed how the 1960's "March on Burmingham" model was no longer effective.

He was a black male.

Well currently, This Poll indicates that Mr. Obama is ahead of Mr. Romney by more than 4 to 1.

I would find that poll somewhat unbelievable. We shall see in November. The only poll that counts is the election.

True, all such polls are purely speculative.

However, after speaking with a few of my conservative co-workers -- who only a few months ago were rabidly against Mr. Obama, and who are now expressing disappointment with Mr. Romney -- my money is on a Democratic victory.

I get tired of hearing about race. It really shouldn't be that relevant in politics but unfortunately it is. The divisions in this country are really caused by economics and culture, not physical genetics.

I hate the racial divide. You'd think in this day and age we'd move past this stuff. We can put a vehicle with a laser on its head on Mars, but we can't seem to move past skin color.

Same with my mom. I don't remember a single election she hasn't voted Republican and she has always disliked Obama, but now with Romney, she's thinking twice.

Nate Silver's blog has its money on Obama winning. Nate Silver has had a really good track record of being right thus far.

I'm no great fan of our current president, either; but the one thing I appreciate him for is the fact that ever since his election, the racist rhetoric that the NAACP and similar organizations has been spouting since the 1960s seems to have greatly diminished.

Phrases like "The White Man is keeping the Black Man down and making it impossible for the Black Man to ever be elected President" now seem to be a thing of the past.

I believe that this is what Jesse Jackson was so miffed off about when he said that he wanted to kick Obama's butt after he won the election -- Mr. Jackson could no longer claim that The System was set up specifically to prevent a "Person of Color" from getting a decent education and a decent job, and thereby inspire minorities to send money...

You should watch UK TV some time.

We have a rich white wanker called Richard Madely who is constantly angry.

I think he was jealous that it wasn't him. I remember when Jesse Jackson ran for president back in 1984. It didn't go well.

Who says every angry white man votes Republican? Kieth Olbermann and Ed Schultz are about as angry as they come, and they're dyed in the wool liberals.

Why would anyone identify his essence and being in terms of skin color which is (1) superficial and (2) accidental ?

Identifying according to one's religion or philosophy or trade or function makes more sense because these characteristics correspond to voluntary states.

I am pretty sure there are a lot of angry white men but if they were to speak up I am afraid they would be seen as racist. Sad thing is racism against caucasian Americans is ignored they believe that you cannot be racist unless you are white!
