    Yesterday, a heated "debate" (well, as much of a debate that can be had in this mostly right wing forum) was had about one poster's friend who, as a liberal, spoke about a right wing friend who claimed that a good part of the hatred toward Obama was based on race.

    I do NOT believe that opposition toward Obama is wholly based on race.....however, to deny that some racism does not exist toward Obama's presidency, would be equally naive.

    So, what would make someone who is black and relatively intelligent, embrace the GOP platform that is often enmeshed in policies that are not for the betterment of the black voting bloc?

    I am reminded of a passage in Milton's Paradise Lost where Lucifer explains why he chose to defy God's wishes (and PLEASE, I do not mean even remotely to equate a black republican to the devil......but the analogy is still sound.) ........Anyway, through Milton's prose, Lucifer explains that he would rather be a "king in hell" than just one of many other angel standing beside the throne of God.

    What I'm getting at is that for SOME blacks who have chosen to embrace right wing policies may do so because the notoriety gained by such a stance is much more self serving than to be one of the vast majority of blacks who side with the left ideology. In other words, if you want to get on the FOX channels or the Rush radio talk shows, your chances are vastly improved if you claim that you are an arch conservative AND black.

    When you post something plausible and serious, you will get serious answers. Keep posting left wing bull and you will keep getting the same response.

    First, the people who side with the left do so because they don't understand politics.

    Secondly, Obama isn't black, so this whole post is pointless.

    . I've heard of people running around claiming to be or standing up for conservative policies, but I have never seen anyone claim their color as being something crucial to having or keeping their conservative views in which they might have. Why don't you use your own mind to rationalize something better, instead of being a mindless black sheep who follows idiotic racist bull crap thinking like you have just posted above ? Just sayin....
