    The MSM is setting the stage for when their hero Hussein loses the election to Romney. Everyone who doesn't vote for "O" is a RACIST...!

    Easily predictable.

    In other news: Majority have looked at statistics on crime, welfare, etc. Those "fighting racism" have concentrated on doing so by convincing people they are wrong, rather than by making them wrong. It appears that the effort has just made them "more right" - particularly the "fight discrimination with reverse discrimination" strategy.

    Prejudice, stereotypes, etc., will not spread or survive unless people can see them reinforced by enough real life examples. Make up a stereotype about any group - race, sex, religion, etc. - and no one will buy it unless they can see enough of it in reality. "White people can't dance" - guess what, go down to the club and watch.

    let's suppose for a moment, the ambassador and the two former SEALs were black...

    I think it works both ways.

    I could be wrong, but my impression is more Blacks are speaking out from a clear-headed, moral, and conservative viewpoint than ever before. This isn't just random acts of separating themselves from the "group think", and self-limiting general political philosophy of American Blacks.......but, a blossoming trend.

    That "trend" is in a crossfire between political interests, and their "group think"......but, it is really important for those willing to take the heat, to not be silenced. Right now, it seems like there are plenty of Blacks who are speaking out, and although members of other races do see, and hear these things......all we can do is listen to them, and support them. It's other blacks who must be persuaded, and members of other races can't do anything of real substance to help their situation.......Blacks, NEED to re-capture their honor and integrity within their own generally held racial philosophy to make the difference.

    If American Blacks are to improve their condition, they must do it......nobody, or no racially separate entity can do it for them. On the top of the list for Blacks to come to grips with, is government, especially Democrats, are self serving, and helping them isn't the main objective. The very first thing Blacks need to do is break from the pack, and quit relying on government to be the solution to their problems. American Blacks have been manipulated against their best interests.....and lied to. :steamed:

    One other thing Blacks will have to deal with, is racism will never be eliminated, and that Blacks have their own racists, too. Other races, don't take the race-baiters (KKK, for instance) and parade them around like they are pillars of truth......(Jesse Jackson, for instance) Blacks need to understand that skin color doesn't mean the person who is Black, has an honorable objective in mind for them. These so-called "spokesmen" for the Black race can be just as racist, and self serving, and manipulative, as any racist white, or Asian, or Hispanic, or whatever...........We ALL need to reject them, on whatever terms they offer.......

    I will say this: Obama himself has not improved my perspective of blacks and the entire race's willingness to blindly support him no matter how severe the ineptitude tells me a lot about their racism.

    Link to the polling data. They interviewed 1,071 adults. It appears they they interviewed more Democrats than Republicans, 2010: 37-27 and 2012: 35-27 (page 30). Race break down (page 33) was as follows...
    White, Non-Hispanic: 2010: 69 - 2012: 67
    Black, Non-Hispanic: 2010: 11 - 2012: 12
    Other, Non-Hispanic:2010: 5 - 2012: 6
    Hispanic: 2010: 13 - 2012: 14
    2+ Races, Non-Hispanic: 2010: 1 - 2012: 1

    That is a point many people have noticed.

    I notice the media ridiculing John Sununu for suggesting that Colin Powell endorsed Obama because he is black. The Washington Post said: "John Sununu: Race-baiting buffoon" - really? Can any of them provide some examples of What Powell and Obama have in common, other than race? No.

    Of course, that same left-nut articles said:

    Not a racist doube standard there.:upeyes:

    Yes, clearly there's no logical reason why The One could lose the election.

    They can't let the liberal masses realize that there are deficiencies in the modern hard left party platform, lest there be a Clinton-style reform movement back towards a more moderate position, not when their decades-long neo-socialist game plan is so close to producing a Marxist utopia...though I think they were overconfident about their political propaganda dominance and the 2010 conservative backlash caught them completely by surprise.

    I'm not voting for Romney because he is white. I'm voting for him because he is, well, SANE!

    I think we're seeing what happens when you put a "community organizer" in charge of a country...

    You know, I wasn't racist when all this started. But I'm thinking of signing up. You get called something you're not for long enough by a group that acts monolithically and figure, hey, might as well own it.

    In every prejudice there's at least a grain of truth. A cliche takes over the White House and look what happens...:upeyes:

    This goes for blacks as well. They didn't differentiate the races that I saw in the poll. They didn't mention their polling population. More blacks are killed by blacks, this is not done by a people that loves themselves. Just like more mooselimbs kill mooselimbs than the US ever did. The Sunni and ****e thing is ridiculous.

    They are confusing the color black, with thugs, of any color. Common failure to recognize reality by the media.

    And if Powell had run against Romney as a Republican in the primary, I'd have voted Powell. Of course, that was before he endorsed Obama, so I might have been wrong.
