    “If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position,” she said. “And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.”

    Nope its the truth. Obama has no business running for president. He has done nothing.

    Same goes with Hillary, if she wasnt a woman or a Clinton she wouldn't be in this race either.

    Yes, and furthermore its retarded.

    If its so easy to get elected to office if you are black, care to inform me where the swarms of black Senators and House representatives are? Where all the Black Governors are? Where all the black presidential and vice-presidential candidiates are?

    Obama is here in spite of his race, not because of his race.

    It's certainly patronising, don't think it's racist. But it's plain stupid for sure.

    Check the demographics in the US. Second, was there hate involved in what she said? Third, although Obama is completely ignorant of what's about to transpire in the US and around the world, I agree that he is above the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons, the ones that promote racist transgressions and attempt to villify those who don't fit into their idea of the oppressed.

    Something need not actually be racist to be CALLED "racist." Pointing out plain facts -- say, blacks commit more crime -- is considered "racist". Actually, Ferrarro committed a crime I call "speaking while white," i.e., pointing out an obvious fact about race, while white.

    Isn't funny how, the more blacks rise to positions of power, the louder the cries of "racism" become?

    I would say so. It makes a claim (perhaps untrue but certainly unwarranted and unnecessary) based on race.

    Blacks are 12.8% of the population.

    So there should be: 12-13 black Senators (There have only been 5..EVER).

    Around 70 or so black House reps (Approx 40 now I think)

    Should be at least 6 black Governors (only been 4 EVER).

    What was that you were saying about demographics?

    No idea. Hate isn't necessary for racism.

    He has a hell of a better grasp on foreign policy than you do.

    And its a plain fact that Obama wouldn't have gotten here if he wasn't black? Oh, no, wait its moronic opinion.

    Wait you mean whites don't notice racism as much as blacks? Shocking I tell you, shocking!
