    It is sort of tragic and ironic that a man who has the potential to be a great president is Black. Being black in America is not a good thing, first slaves, then hung, then kicked out of voting, denied equal education, etc etc, then allowed some rights, then told they have too many rights. Then low and behold they become elitists? Talk about upward mobility. What a screwed up man man is. Only the American Indians have had it as tough and they lost all tradition and were pretty much destroyed.

    The 'race card' is another distraction, if Obama were white with a name like Robert Neutral he'd be a shoe in but those people with those weird glasses who can't see past their own prejudices see only so far.

    And does anyone talk about John McCain's race? Everyone knows the horrors the white race has perpetuated on the world. Most dictators, mass murderers, robber barons, and other assorted crazies are white. Another white man! OMG

    It seems to me that the ones that talk the most about race are the ones in the Obama camp.

    Or just desperate.
    Remember, it was the Republicans who supported Clarence Thomas and Colin Powell. Colin Powell would have already run for president if his wife hadn't opted out for him.

    My advice would be to drop it. It does more harm than good to keep making Obama look like a victim.

    Sorry, but i don't see victim anywhere. Obama needs to speak up about it, he has done so and done it well so far. Consider how Kerry thought he was being magnanimous in his candidacy, it didn't get him very far. They created his image for him. It is why image needs to be countered immediately. While the democrats need to focus on the economy, the republicans will make the race about Obama. They will not focus on issues but on Obama.

    They don't get far because they're lying POS who try to dupe the public, and make the monumental mistake of thinking the public is too stupid to realize it.

    I think I've been duped into thinking that this quote was actually going to make sense...

    The subtle racist crap that detracts from the real issues. One sees it often for instance on Fox with the use of names or the emphasis on so called black issues.
