    A great speech doesn't change your own views that you have conveyed in the past, that's called hippocracy.:eusa_whistle:

    So you're saying that he must feel the same at 12 and 47? Have your views on the world not changed over your lifetime?

    It's his views expressed throughout his book even after leaving college. I don't know of too many 12 year olds graduating college?

    I was referring to your quote from when he was 12.

    His college age quote wasn't anything radical.

    You need to read up on the context of him talking about his employer.

    Now why don't you address what he said a few weeks back. You know, the way he feels right now.

    His boss was too white...oh ok that's not racial at all. Well if the opposite were true would you fine it racial, my boss is too black? If it was taken out of context then please do explain.
    You mean wanting to talk about racial divides after you are engulfed in a racial scandal?

    It's getting late, and I can tell emotions are about to take over this thread. If you have some free time, read up on what Obama was saying about his boss.

    I have I stupidly bought the book, 'Dreams from my father'. But do tell me where I can find an explaination of why he called his boss too white.
