@cicerone imposter,
Since it's so difficult to identify illegal immigrants, the GOP congress decided it was cheaper to ship seniors to other countries to save on social security and medicare, because they wouldn't know how to return.

Indeed. What's obvious to all needn't be proven.

Yeah snood, that's me, the white racist.

When it comes to you though I suspect I'm one of many you encounter in any given day:

The white mailman who tears the cover of your copy of Jack & Jill.

Your white co-worker who speaks disparagingly of the city of Chicago.

Bill Nye The Science Guy when he speaks of "Dark Matter" or "Black Holes."

Your white neighbor who comments on your golf game.

The white girl at the counter of your local Kentucky Fried Chicken who invites you to enjoy the fried chicken you've purchased.

You and Adam4adam share the same brain waves.



Wow, you actually put that odious screed in print. I don't think you are a real racist, you seem to be a provocatour and jerk.

@snood,
<Indeed, blacks support President Obama for similar reasons to those stated in the New Yorker magazine's endorsement: "[He] has achieved a run of ambitious legislative, social and foreign-policy successes that relieved a large measure of the human suffering and national shame inflicted by the Bush Administration. Obama has renewed the honor of the office he holds."
That he happens to be African American, of course, is an added value of pride for African Americans.>

This is true that Obama has given African Americans a strong sense of pride, a feeling they hitherto had never felt....The same could be said of the Irish and Catholics when JFK because the first Catholic president. Many African Americans thought of Bill Clinton as the first "black" president.

<Are whites voting against Obama chiefly because he's black?>

Yes. Although there are moderate/liberal whites voting for Obama, along with Gays, Asians, Latinos, women and African Americans.

In my opinion please get off the red-herring express. Many whites are just conservative, since they have family that would have less, under an administration that is oriented to "spreading the wealth around," as Obama talked about in the 2008 election.

And, please explain why Michelle stated that this (2008) was the first time she was proud of her country, by seeing a black candidate? Why does one need to have a candidate from one's own ethnic/race to feel proud of one's country. Think of all the Poles, Italians, Hispanics that might be waiting patiently to see someone from their ethnic group be President before they can feel pround of their country, according to that belief. I am being sarcastic, since everyone is more than likely quite proud of their country, without having someone from their respective ethinic/race be the President. Must many African-Americans be concerned with whether they are getting their fair share, rather than just picking themselves up from their bootstraps, like other ethnic groups that have been reviled and ostracized?

It's obvious you have no idea about how most democratic governments in this world works. Some of the highest taxed democratic countries have the better education, better health, and happiest people in this world.

Your obvious ignorance about repeating the conservative message about Obama being a "socialist" is based on ignorance and nothing more.

The US spends the most on defense, and is involved in more wars that kills innocent people around the world - rather than spend our money on our children's education, our infrastructure, and those who need support with food and shelter.

Your belief that higher social standings make you a better human, but you continue to contradict yourself all the time.

Even though Obama's experience in the United States is nothing like their experience,
most black Americans voted for Obama just because he is sort of black like them.
