The fact that that question even "needed" to be asked is f*cking embarassing.

It won't hurt any more than adopting a "black" baby hurt McCain in the 2000 primary.

Well that settles it! I'm definitely not voting for his ex college girlfriend!

Or something.

The author of the article seems to have a problem with it, because she apparently is convinced he's a racist (or at least she's determined to convince others that he is). Fortunately, she's able to rectify this fact with her preconceived judgment and even suggests that having a black college girlfriend bolsters her argument. All in all, it's a farking stupid article.

CreamFilling: All in all, it's a farking stupid article.


Oh don't give us that.

You know damned well Ryan stole Obama's time machine, went back to college, and dated a black woman just so he could return to the present and do and say racist things and then go "Nu-uh I slept with a black girl so I can't be racist HA-HA."

It's undeniable.

No it doesn't. So he's willing to make an exception for "his girl." So farking what? His policies would eviscerate most of whatever is left of the black middle class. Not to mention what would happen to the MILLIONS of blacks in this country who never got a shot at the middle class. Pell Grants? Gone. Food Stamps and TANF for single mothers? Gone. Medicare? Gone.

So he found one Christian paper bag/ruler girl that would let him play with her naughty bits while he was away from home. So what?

So far I've seen liberal sources paint him as anti-medicare/aid, and pro life. Nothing about racism so far.

Only because some young naive liberals are trying to convince themselves they can somehow understand the cognitive dissonance that goes on in the minds of modern Republicans.

Given the reports that nobody among his college friends or fraternity seem to remember ever seeing the alleged black girlfriend, she may also be Canadian.

Does Paul Ryan's Black Ex-Girlfriend Matter?

No.

FTFA: Here's a well-known phrase that has virtually become a punch line: When someone finds himself on the ropes facing an allegation of racism, the go-to reflex defense is usually something along the lines of "But some of my best friends are black!" Translation: "I can't possibly be racist or racially insensitive because there are black people I like and they like me. So there."

For example:

Too bad Obama never dated a white woman. That would prove to everyone he's not racist against whites.

Unlike Obama, at least the black he got on his dick washed right off.
 
2012-08-24 01:14:08 PM  
I think the article only makes this point: look at the policies Ryan has advanced and currently advocates to find his position on race. The fact that he had a black "sweetheart" doesn't necessarily mean much. People often make an "exception" for people they know personally. My grandfather hated black people, but had a good friendship with a black man from church.

People are complicated.

Bullsh*t. The base hates it*, but they can't blog about it because they think a blog is a log in a bog.

*And by hate, I mean, strenuously disagree but not to the point they'd ever consider voting for Obama, because knowing and valuing economic self-interests are a foreign to them as a consanguinity index approaching zero.

Us liberals have been fine with the idea even before Guess Who's Coming To Dinner. The speech by Spencer Tracy at the end of the film, about what actually matters when two people are together, applies.

How the hate-filled denizens of the Bible Belt feel about it, that's up for them to think it over.

I was mocking the assertion, at least as far as this stupid article goes. But you keep farking that "libs think everything is racist" chicken. You're equally as bad as those that do believe that. Both diminish real racism's seriousness.
