    Obama's speech on education: The controversy is mostly about race.


    Key point that is oh some damn true, especially for idiots like DiveCoon, RGS, etc:


    One can’t help but wonder, if it’s socialism these parents are worried about then why are they taking marching orders from General Rush Limbaugh and the other conservative commanders of the far right who have laced much of their criticisms of the president in race-based language and called the president himself a racist? These demigods have exploited the racial fears of irrational, uniformed people and made them captive to group think that posits that white people are losing more and more control over their lives every day because the black man in office is hell-bent on denying them the white privilege that, until his election, was their birthright.

    No, it isn't. It's about his government-grab policies. If you see it as racial, then it will be racial. But you are wrong.

    The past is the past, there is no changing it, the present is here and now. You should listen to Obama . . . didn't he say to look forward, not back? You would do well to get rid of that chip on your shoulders, once and for all.

    No it isn't, it's about hate and self-loathing. The rightwing is melting down because they let someone they consider a communist muslim into the whitehouse.

    But white people ARE fucked these days. The funny thing about oppression is that nobody every admits you're oppressed until years into the future. Whites' reaction is nearly normal; the only abnormal thing about it is that we're so indirect about it, calling the problem "socialism" when the real problem is Life With Non-Whites and the impossibilities it poses.

    It ain't "socialism" that's the problem. It's multiracialism.

    Is it overtly racist? I don't know. I only know who the people are who are insane in their responses to him... and what is being said.

    There is no power grab that comes close to what the incompetent in the white house for the previous 8 years did... up to and including pretending that the VP wasn't part of the executive branch and violating TWO court orders to release the veep's visitor logs.

    It has nothing to do with what went on in the last administration, quit trying to divert the subject and try addressing the OP instead.

    In assessing the reasons for the insane response to our president from certain quarters, it's impossible to ignore the non-responses of the same people to true power grabs.

    sorry... hypocrisy doesn't get a pass from me.
