    I received this post from another message board which is not even political. Please read my response below.

    "How Racism Works...

    What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
    What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating
    class?

    What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became addicted to
    pain killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable
    organization?
    What if Cindy McCain had graduated from Harvard?

    What if Obama were a member of the Keating-5?
    What if McCain were a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

    This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes
    positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities
    in another when there is also a difference based on race.


    You are The Boss... which team would you hire?"


    Thank you for sending me this post. I have a great interest in this
    subject: It is clearly a polemic favoring Barack Obama.

    In a short post like this, there are always unspoken assumptions.
    Obama got into Harvard with the help of al-Mansour, a racist.

    He was selected, not elected, nor picked for academic reasons, to be
    president of the Harvard Law Review -- can you find any articles he
    wrote for the review?

    Barak Obama has never released his grades or any information about
    his academics, so how do we know where he graduated in his class?
    Don't you want to know why he won't release this infomation?

    We don't need a "what if," since the presidential candidate himself
    has admitted to illegal drug use.

    Although McCain was a member of the "Keating 5," Bob Bennett, the
    democratic lawywer for the congressional ethics committee said that
    his involvement was so minor that he should not have been included in
    the charges. On the other hand, Obama is clearly tied to the
    slumlord, Tony Rezko, who helped him buy a house, received funds
    through Obama's position as state senator -- and is now on his way to
    prison. None of the Keating 5 went to prison.

    Reality is defined by actions, not words. Although Obama is
    eloquent, he has never accomplished anything nor fought for his
    country, nor suffered years of torture for wearing the U.S. flag.
    Instead, he has gone and addressed German crowds, telling them his
    country is not what it used to be, and has a wife who stated that she
    has never been proud of her country.

    Which of the following is associated with McCain:
    --William Ayers
    --Rev Wright
    --Tony Rezko
    --Louis Farrakhan
    --Father Phlager
    --ACORN

    "For most Americans, there is nothing more terrifying than the
    prospect of being called a racist. It's scarier than flood or famine,
    terrorist attacks or flesh-eating bacteria."

    The idea that voting against Obama is racist is bogus and a
    smokescreen. As you can see above, there are many valid reasons.

    Thanks again.

    got a link that shows this came from Obama rather than an Obama supporter? probably not but don't let that stop you from attempting to insinuate that it came directly from Obama and his campaign.

    I've seen it only on blogs and in email and not from the campaign at all... unlike the food stamp with watermelon and ribs and chicken and obama's face.

    But I am curious. What's propaganda about it? Except for the ridiculous response to it, that is.

    And for the moron who did the response, you don't become president of harvard law review because of affirmative action.

    But cool that the ijit proved the point of the email. woooo hooo!

    I'm sorry, I thought the people on this board was literate. Let me explain to those who are a bit challenged.

    It was supposed to be a message about racism. Clearly, the only racism that is being spewed is by the Obama people.

    Sweetheart, for someone who's as challenged as you are, I wouldn't insult anyone else's intellect.

    I know EXACTLY what it is. And, frankly, I've been amazed at what the right wingnuts justify ...

    Sorry, we aren't smart enough for you. Perhaps another forum would be more to your liking. I hear there's one called Free Republic that seems tailor made for intelligent people of your caliber.

    That was your thread title.

    Now, answer my question, Obama sent you that?

    I think you better think first before you post YOUR right wing propaganda, eh?

    It is pretty clear that you are unable your focus on a particular point, which probably explains your choice of candidate.

    Here is the definition of propaganda: ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause.

    See, you've learned a definition of a new term and you've been rewarded for getting out of bed today. Your "style," if we can use that term loosely, is to use vague and vapid terms like "ridiculous," rather than address a particular point. Since you haven't done so, there are none of my statements that you can refute. As far as, the Harvard Law Review, please tell us what test he had to pass to become president thereof.
