I'm a White Male, so which one of these am I supposed to click:

Barack Obama | Change We Can Believe In | Home

Or am I not welcome on Barack Hussein Obama's website?

I tried to help you, but it seems you aren't welcome.....
Luckily there are some other candidates who have better judgment and who will welcome anybody.

Actually, in light of the fact that the White Male used to be the default voter to reach, this is interesting to look at.
Those subcategories (Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders, Labor, African Americans, Americans Abroad, Environmentalists, Women, etc etc) are obviously special groups to whom I assume Obama is extending a hand.

McCain's website mentions people in government and the military who support him, as well as Hispanics. In another section, lawyers, veterans and women are highlighted.

Correct me if I am wrong: Clinton's website doesn't really specify any groups that I could see, and her "connect with others" section makes you fill out a form first, which I did not want to do.

John Edwards, White Male, had to drop out, as did others.

Maybe White Males are not so important anymore? The horror!

I read the link that you provided. And, I see just how it affects us.

It's the same old tune - For instance, focusing on racial profiling and racism, rather than focusing on the roots of crime and responsibility within the communities (and the people themselves).

The programs he suggests for the workplace, such as broadly making flexible hours requirements shows that he may not fully understand productivity in industry. There's a lot to be said about these types of programs.

Unless there is something else somewhere, both of these links give the impression that this man will somewhat divide this country further along racial, ethnic and economic lines.

That's just what so many of us who researched him a while ago have been trying to say all along. His hope and change is for the birds....I don't want any part of it.

Can you elaborate? What are your experiences with this type of employment structure? What do you see would be an improvement to this type of plan. Where or what does it fail to address?

Ah, I see, you don't work (Labor) you don't got to church (People of Faith) you are not a Veteran, you are not interested in Educational issues (Student), you are older (Generation Obama) and you don't care about the Environment because apparently you live in a bubble.

I see now. You are just bitter because the American electorate has finally woken up and realized that there is more to America than white males and that it is being acknowledged, it is starting to irk you.

Did you forgot that Obama, and Clinton were both elected by the same political system that has been electing white males since its formation and both Clinton and Obama know this. They also know that alienating white males is no way to get elected.

You, however are obviously looking to be alienated and offended by 'that scary guy has that weirdo foreign name', and people seeking out offense usually find it.
