    Obama is now playing the race card - and I am afraid it will come back to hurt him

    Just when the guy is gaining on the Red Queen, he has to fuck it up by playing the race card



    Obama Warns of 'Quiet Riot' Among Blacks

    Associated Press Writer

    HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Tuesday that the Bush administration has done nothing to defuse a "quiet riot" among blacks that threatens to erupt just as riots in Los Angeles did 15 years ago.
    The first-term Illinois senator said that with black people from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still displaced 20 months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration and resentments are building explosively as they did before the 1992 riots.

    "This administration was colorblind in its incompetence," Obama said at a conference of black clergy, "but the poverty and the hopelessness was there long before the hurricane.

    "All the hurricane did was to pull the curtain back for all the world to see," he said.

    Obama's criticism of Bush prompted ovation after ovation from the nearly 8,000 people gathered in Hampton University's Convocation Center, particularly when he denounced the Iraq war and noted that he had opposed it from the outset.

    Repeatedly, he referred to the riots that erupted in Los Angeles after a jury acquitted four police officers of assault charges in the 1991 beating of Rodney King, a black motorist, after a high speed chase. Fifty-five people died and 2,000 were injured in several days of riots in the city's black neighborhoods.

    Let them burn NO down, what would that prove? Really? I think if people were responsible for the actions they portray then NO would be on a real road to recovery. Attitude is everything and when they said no you prove them wrong and succeed!

    And that is the problem! I guess the whites should stand on that principle when we need it rebuilt because it is run down, just riot and burn it. Give it a few years and not only will it be all new but the rise in insurance and other things will also increase but it is new and we got our attention fix in the process. That is great logic!

    If the bad behaviour has worked in the past - why change

    Of course if anyone spoke out and pointed out these facts - they would be called racist
