    I love Jonathan Capehart.

    perhaps someone reading this will see the flip side of the argument... i doubt it, but you never know.

    If The Beatles had been black, the second best selling song of all time would have been " S a y, D u d e ".

    I've constantly tried to get white boys to see the flip side: How would they like to live in a country with 12% whites, most police are black, most judges are black, most legislatures are black.......and 60% of the prison population is white?

    How would they react? Might they develop just a little paranoid racism of their own?

    Like you, I doubt they'll relate.:doubt:

    Based on the things the "right" was slinging during the campaign (i.e., Muslim, terrorist, Kenyan, ******), I personally believe there would be a lot less dissent.

    Is anyone else mystified by the article linked? I didnt see anything about what if the tea party was black. I saw some bizarre comparisons to a song by Ice T about killing cops to tea party members. The point of the comparison was lost, however. To my knowledge tea party people have never advocated killing cops. Or anyone else for that matter.
    I guess if you take the view that the tea party must be racist then if it were black it would be against white people. Or something like that.:cuckoo:

    The quotation I noted was "what if even one third of the vitriol aimed at Obama were aimed by blacks at a white president."
    Hello? Anyone remember Pres Bush? Anyone remember Cognac West saying "George Bush doesnt care about black people"? and that was mild. Anyone remember ads insinuating Pres Bush was in favor of lynching?
    What are these people smoking? Seriously.
