I must be a low class liberal too because I don't see anything very racist about that statement. Let's face it, we are always hearing about ghetto people (supposedly all on welfare, druggies, murderers) and Obama is the opposite of that stereotype. Fact is a lot of people remain stuck in that stereotypical lifestyle and most of us hope the situation will improve. Facts are facts. It's not racist to praise Obama for escaping from the stereotype. It may be slightly offensive to single him out as being unique, but it is not racist.

It's not rocket science.
It sure didn't take long to be called a racist. I shook hands with a lot of people there. When you were a juvenile back then and an adult put his hand out, you shook hands (especially when they are armed ). I was white, I was invited to go and see what it was like, frankly it was a little scary.

Ah, yes. The Obama card.

I appreciate your heartfelt concern over Biden's clumsy words from a dozen years ago.

What about tRump's more recent openly racist derision?

"But that's different..."

I guess that I should have phrased it that you’re judged by the company you keep.

If you’re comfortable being in the company of overt racists, then you probably share their beliefs.

If you were uncomfortable by what you saw, you probably tried to avoid people like that for the rest of your life.

I grew up in a mixed hood but when we would walk to the mall it was always black teens causing the trouble like squirting us with squirt guns filled with gasoline.

A fair question. During my visit, I learned it was a political party playing off the NAACP. It was not what I expected, those people were true racist-white supremacists, which is my basis for this thread. The words racist-white supremacists are truly overused, totally misleading, and just hurtful to continue any meaningful dialogue.

As soon as you call someone a derogatory name, communication ends.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib said;the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are ‘good people’ among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity
and just think, he was the better of the two choices...

Usually, but our current president has made up derogatory names for most of his opponents since before the election, so I assume you don't support him and want him out of office.

Racist white supremacist, whether overused or not, perfectly describes Donald Trump. His continued public attacks are propaganda, sowing hatred and/or disrespect for non-whites world-wide. Even his wife wore a shirt for photo ops imploring Americans to "not care" about asylum-seeking migrants (brown people).

Trump's propaganda is much worse for diminished civil rights and poor race relations than any redneck with swastika tattoos and a radio dialed to Rush Limbaugh.
