having an incompetent, corrupt president has nothing to do with racism, with the exception of the fact obama has set race relations back 100 years.
He encourages race division, he would love to see a race war.
One on many reasons he has to go in November...

The racism against Black people has always been quite vocal. Black people are the scapegoats for all of the ills of society. But I actually believe that (despite the most recent incident of national note) there is more racism being directed at the so called "model minorities". As America becomes more Latino and Asian, the racism will be more focused on those groups.

Reply makes no sense, which doesn't surprise me at all...
What do I, or anyone have to do with the fact that obama encourages racial division? Seems like a lot of blacks here in the forum do also...!!
Fortunately there are many good black people, just too few in the forum. I guess the good ones have better things to do than excite racism...
We read your posts and see right through you...

yes, that is right,, we got Al Sharpton for years pushing his racism on the white race.

Funny how they call white people racial profilers when they act afraid of a black person. Yet I have black friends who tell me they are afraid to go out at night because of the gun shots they hear . Are the blacks who are afraid of the blacks , profilers too??

Default Why are racial cases only popular when it is a black victim?

Why would Obama make a speech about a black kid who dies, which is sad.. but why wouldn't he speak on behalf of white people? Maybe he could have said "If I was white and had two different sons, it would look exactly like them".
