    Obama is black, if he speaks to a black person he's being divisive.
    If he speaks about black issues he's being divisive

    His blackness is divisive and white people dont like it. What's up with that?

    He's supposed to be the President of the United States of America. He is supposed to speak about national issues, not 'black issues'. What the fuck is a 'black issue' anyway? How fucking ludicrous is it that you have to single out blacks as needing special treatment. They're Americans, nothing more, nothing less.... and, frankly, that should be enough for anyone... regardless of skin color.

    When you start a post with a lying premise - in this case that Obama cannot speak to a black person without being considered divisive - expect to receive your richly deserved beatdown.

    He does speak about national issues and it's not a problem. It's only a problem for whites when he talks to blacks or about blacks. Black issues are not a foriegn concept and I know you have to play dumb to make that point. It's the same as any other group that has issues like Jewish issues, Hispanic issues, Women Issues, Family Issues etc. If you dont understand that different issues affect different people different ways then we're starting from scratch here
