    Just curious, it seems to be a touchy subject that gets a lot of play on these boards but nobody has the balls to openly discuss it through its own post.

    Playing the Race card is the same thing as fear mongering.

    it's all "tactic"

    I was just listening to our national radio broadcaster, my favourite morning current affairs programme is being broadcast right now from Cincinatti. It's all about the election of course. Just a moment ago one of the presenters just made the point that it wasn't that long ago that the US had racial separatism in some states. And in 2008 here is a bi-racial man who may become president in January 2009. Sounds like progress to me.

    what pisses me off about the race card? the whole thing. from the duke rapes to the newsome murder...its all about race...while one case of white on black is being blown up in the media...another crime black on white is being hidden. why do blacks follows the likes of jesse jackson or al sharpton? do they not see these men are nothing but self serving parasites? there is racism there will always be racism but it does not help when blacks have this poor me attitude...that we owe them...i am willing to pay reparations on one condition that is it...no more after that...no matter what happens...it would actually save us money in the long run. but then you have to deal with this fact...not all blacks are descendants of slaves...many are blacks who came to this country freely....wanting too..how you gonna separate that...or do you just get the money cause you are black? when are blacks gonna deal with their lack of drive and morals?
    why are successful blacks mocked as white or being white like? why do blacks fear normal success? the only boot on the throats of blacks is the one worn by the likes of jackson and sharpton.

    With a very few vile exceptions on the board, the most racist comments I've seen or heard have come from the left about those that don't agree with them. There is no possibility that it's the man's ideas that are disagreed with, you know, treating him like an equal? Instead it's all racism.

    Hell, they're even saying that socialist is synonymous with ******, give me a freaking break. I have called Terkel and Alinski socialist, both of which were white guys and would have worn the label proudly. Last I check so were Marx and Lenin and Castro.

    Question: Why are these people so comfortable making overt racist comments and gestures and conservative/McCain/Palin rallies? I've never been at any public venue in my life where I would feel comfortable (assuming I even wanted to) making racist gestures and comments.
