I thought this may be a political issue, but it's really more of a social issue, with certain examples being political. Anyways, if mods feel this isn't the appropriate forum, my apologies in advance, and feel free to move or delete it. Has anyone noticed how it's ok if someone like Snoop Dogg comes out nonchalantly saying the top reason for him and why others should vote for Obama is because he's black? We all know what would happen to whites, and how the media has and will tear you apart for saying such an ignorant thing, however it seems if you're of color you can get away with it. Almost like the media expects you to be ignorant, which in turn is racist in itself; and ultimately seems like a big insult on blacks, and other "non whites" who the media does this to. Another example would be Zimmerman. Almost immediately after the shooting, the Urban culture (not black, urban can be any color, it's the urban mindset I'm trying to describe) labeled him a racist, when he said no such thing to make someone think otherwise? FBI even had to confirm and dig up his past and could find nothing, however there is still a large following who INSIST he's a racist, and it was race motivated. The black panthers even put a bounty on his head. These are two examples I can think of at the moment, where it seems the Al Sharpton crowd LOVES labeling anyone and everyone a racist that benefits them, even if they haven't said such a thing.....BUT when someone like Snoop Dogg comes out and says he's voting someone solely on their skin color, and a few other things that don't make a damn difference to the abilities or lack thereof regarding the president. Even though I understand both sides are wrong when it comes to this, my question is, why is it not OK for whites to act like idiots - such as what Snoop Dogg is doing, but if the other side does it, you can actually put innocent men in jail or on trial for something they never would have gone through otherwise?
