If you're black, gay, a woman, or make less than a few million dollars per year, the Republicans hate you, and wouldn't mind it if you had as many rights as the average slave off the boat in the 1800s.

Yet they still have the support of about half the country.

We're a very stupid nation.

Go ahead and be racist all you want - free country.

However, when your newly minted GOP legislatures in states all over the country immediately set out to pass laws specifically targeting blacks and latinos in order to cut them from the rolls, prevent them from voting on days when black churches usually vote and make people present a form of ID that 25% of that specific group doesn't have, then I get pissed....and if people call you racist you had it coming.

I hope Barack can get this thing over the finish line, principally because I think he's been an effective president despite enormous challenges, but also because the GOP needs to be punished for the way they have behaved these last four years.

Historically abusing the fillibuster (from 1 on average a year to 70+ now), negotiating in bad faith and generally making the government an ineffective, national embarrassment.

I don't think this is necessarily true. If it were true, Blacks would be more split in other Presidential races. The truth is African-Americans tend to vote Democratic instead of along racial lines. Otherwise Herman Cain would have had a lot more support from Black folk.

We're all racist in some way or another. People who claim they don't see color are liars, we all see it and it affects us in some way. Most of us actively work to overcome these parts of ourselves and it makes us ashamed to have these thoughts. Others, not so much. So I have this idea that all these distractions about Obama are just reasons that racists have to make it OK to hate him. They can't say he's a bad president because he's black, but it's perfectly OK for them to hate him because he's a socialist. So they have concocted all these lies about who he is and what he's done so they feel justified in hating him so they don't have to admit they just don't like the black guy in the White House.

I could give a flying fark whether black people are voting for Obama because he's black. When you are brought to a country in chains, watch your children taken from you and sold to the highest bidder, remain second-class citizens after emancipation, are forced to drink from separate drinking fountains, use different bathrooms and send your children to inferior schools, and are not allowed to vote for generations - all because of the color of your skin - then I have no problem with you voting for a president whose skin is the same color as yours.

The election of the first black POTUS was/is historic and important, and I applaud black Americans for wanting to be a part of it. Obama's election was a big farking deal.

Anyone who believes that a black person voting for Obama because he's black and a white person voting for Romney because he's white are in any way morally equivalent is a racist.

In the end, this thread shows the mentality of your typical Republican. Instead of looking inward and saying, "What can we do to honestly reach out to black folks," they instead lash out and try to claim WELL DEMOCRATS AND BLACKS ARE RACIST TOO, EVEN MORE THAN WE ARE.

You see it all the time. President Obama loses a debate according to popular opinion - Democratic voters fret and worry and honestly criticize the President's approach. Governor Romney loses a debate according to popular opinion, and OH NO LIBRUL MEDIA IS OUT TO GET US ACTUALLY ROMNEY WON WITH THE SILENT MAJORITY AND THOSE POLL NUMBERS MEAN NOTHING.

This is why the Republicans will continue to marginalize themselves. They dictate to their audience rather than listen to them at all times, no matter what.

I don't think so, Sparky. It's okay to see color. I can look at Michael Jordan and acknowledge he's black, and look at myself and acknowledge I'm white. That's not racist. There's no racism in seeing and understanding that there are different colors and cultures on this planet. What IS racist is thinking that your race is superior to another. I don't think any racial group is superior to another. There's winners and losers in every race, creed, color, and ethnicity. Look at the white supremacists who claim that they're the "master race." Ever see some of these people? Master race my left ass cheek. I'd love to tell them, "If you're the best your God can do, your God is a lazy and stupid God."

I can honestly look at myself in the mirror and say that I don't hate any man because of the color of his skin, and I don't think because I'm a different race than that man, I'm better. Saying "well, everyone is a little bit racist" is trying to rationalize your own issues by projecting them on other people, and that's an intellectually dishonest cop-out.

And it's almost entirely a Southern problem. Obama is actually leading among whites in the Midwest, and is only a couple of points behind Romney among whites in the West and Northeast. It's in the eternally ignorant and backwards South that he has a huge deficit.

They can... Is it safe to assume that you're speaking out of an ignorant belief designed to cause fear of black people, or do you regularly get beat up walking through predominantly black neighborhoods?

I've walked through all kinds of neighborhoods... and oddly the only people who have assaulted me were white people. Once a couple of black guys actually saw me being assaulted and kicked the shiat out of the white guy who attacked me... then they gave me a beer and smoked a joint with me! So... from my own personal experiences, I'd say you're speaking from ignorance and fear, not experience.

OK, let's define a term here.

RACISM is a belief system that one race (usually white people) are inherently superior to other races.

Voting FOR a candidate because he's "one of your people" is not racist, any more than voting for Romney because you're both rich or from Massachusetts.

Voting AGAINST a candidate based on race implies (not proves, just implies) that you think the fact that he is of that race inherently disqualifies him for the job.

A more accurate term for most people's behavior - on both sides - would be "PREJUDICED".

FTFA: My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people -- not all of them, but most of them -- who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable.

The man is correct. The Republican power base -- i.e., most of the rich people in the U.S. -- cannot pull in enough votes on its own to win elections. So, they go after the right-wing kooks, which include the "conservative" religious zealots and the white supremacist bigots (those are not mutually exclusive btw) and a vast majority of the undereducated hotheads. I don't believe in my heart that the true core of the Republican party really likes having most of these idiots in their constituency, but from a vote-count perspective they really have no choice but to court them. I would think that most of the real leadership in the Republican party finds a significant portion of their constituency to be repugnant at best. They see it as a necessary evil.

Both.

But it's a closeted, self-hating kind of racism. Racism's gotten all kinds of weird in America. Even the white supremacists have been rebranding themselves as "White Separatists" instead of "supremacists." Nobody will say, "them Porch Monkeys is an inferior subspecies," but they'll constantly talk about certain ethnic groups on welfare and their "(negative term) culture" and usually make lots of references to welfare and handouts regardless of their actual socioeconomic status. They won't use the word "inferior" but they'll use all kinds of synonyms and they won't talk about race but they will talk about "culture" and they won't say that black people are the root of all evil but they will wax eloquent about how unfairly treated and abused white people are.

And the thing is these aren't just code words, these people HONESTLY BELIEVE they aren't being racist. They take their racism and shove it so far down into their subconscious that they can't even recognize it, and then just like the homophobe who watches epic amounts of homoerotic wrestling and "brotherly love*" (Nudge nudge wink wink) movies they go on about their racist lives.

One is a question of racism based on hatred of another race, while the other is an example of "racism" based on hope, and on seeing a representative of their long-repressed race succeed. But the latter isn't "racism" with its negative connotations of hate like the former is.

Just like how women pointing to successful female pioneers in politics and business isn't sexism, but denying women rights based on the fact that they are women would be.

And you vote for Snookie because you love everything Jersey. It doesn't mean you hate the guy who isn't from Jersey. But you have a certain pride for Jersey Shore, and you think Snookie would represent you best and you want her in the Oval Office.

I don't believe in my heart that the true core of the Republican party really likes having most of these idiots in their constituency, but from a vote-count perspective they really have no choice but to court them. I would think that most of the real leadership in the Republican party finds a significant portion of their constituency to be repugnant at best. They see it as a necessary evil.

And they are in the process of getting what they deserve for striking a bargain like that - along with a lot of other slimy bargains - just so their team can win the Big Game. And in a few more years the "true core" will have been crowded out entirely by the scumbags they brought in.

That's not the correct number to look at. It's the number that voted for the first time or for the first time in a good while, for Obama, because he's black. The janitor at work is in his 50's and never voted before. He didn't try to keep it a secret that he was voting for the first time because a black man was running.

a lot of people struggle with family members who have a different political beliefs then they do. the trick is to realize that as adults we are all strangers to each other, and keep the conversation focus on non-political subjects.

there is a book called "the righteous mind" that came out recently that I really recommend to people who find themselves in this position. the central thesis is that having different answers to particular moral questions than your own, does not make a person immoral.

most people compartmentalize their political/religious beliefs. and arriving at different answers to moral questions, while frustrating, shows that they are not immoral or evil, but instead very concerned about moral behavior.

all this is a long winded way to say good people can sometimes become passionate advocates for opposing viewpoints while remaining "good" people and speaking cordially to each other.

sadly, in this day and age, the younger generation has to be the bigger persons far too often. those we once feared and respected as a demigods (parents) turn out to be people like anyone else, just as capable of becoming scared and confused of a changing world that seems to be passing them by.

still, for what its worth I hope you can patch things up with your parents at least a little bit. assuming they aren't terrible people by nature, as I've grown older, I've come to believe that a strong relationship with your parents is one of the single best things an adult can have. very few other people in this world will ever unquestionably want what is best for you. even if you and them disagree on what exactly that is, their hearts are always in the right place. the older you get, the more you will treasure it.

I hope for your sake, that after next Tuesday fails to begin a thousand year reign of darkness, your parents will slowly start to chill out, and you guys will be able to start patching things up.

So you post an article about a white person being attacked by a black person that was carried by a mainstream, widely circulated national newspaper and then an article about a black person being attacked by a white person that is only being being reported by DailyKos and ignored by the media.

Obama had the same problem with white Democrats in the South. Hillary Clinton beat Obama by 41% in the West Virginia Democratic primary.

I love conservative humor. It's not nuanced, intelligent, or even remotely funny. It's simply underlining their frustration.

I imagine the person making this was thinking something like "Grrrrrr, I keep getting schooled in these racial arguments, I'll just HIGHLIGHT THE SOURCE OF MY FRUSTRATION ON A WILLY WONKA MEME. That'll teach 'em."



It's the old "My party is full of racists who keep trying to take away the right to vote from black people and enact legislation that puts more of them in jail than white people and is just generally terrible for blacks, and as a result 97% of all black people are voting for the democratic candidate, who happens to be black, therefore black people are voting for the black guy and are 100% racist" argument.

/Republicans are stupid
//And getting stupider by the minute.

If you want to see racism, be a minority that disagrees with a liberal. Not only will they gladly use racial epithets they might even go so far as to start hitting you (SEIU members beating a black man). The racist vitriol that got spewed at that Af. American actress. How the left reacted when Rice became Sec of State. So on and so forth.

As with all things, the left only ever has a problem with offensive ideas and or behaviors when it's a non-liberal doing them.

Vectron: I think this is all a ploy to get more white people to vote for Obama.
The biggest fear white people have is being called a racist. It wrecks careers and moves one outside respectable society.
White people are pussies that are easily manipulated.


That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. If racists are afraid of being called racists - why wouldn't they just vote for the misogynistic gay-hating white guy but then CLAIM to have voted for Obama? No one ever sees their ballot.

I also think it's weird that Republicans are shocked that most black people vote for the Democratic Party. They act like Barry Goldwater was the one threatening US senators to get the Civil Rights Act passed rather than LBJ.

I can't think of an argument for voting for a party that is pretty openly contemptuous of me because of my skin color - look at the party's own spokespeople like Limbaugh, Santorum, pretty much every Republican from the South, etc.

Smelly McUgly: Yeah, I think it's more of a southern thing than anything. I picked it up when I lived in Texas for awhile.


I was raised in Texas. I don't refer to people as white folks and black folks. I refer to them as Bill or Steve or Lena or Georgia. If I refer to a group of people, they are people.

Smelly McUgly: Vectron: If this guy is right, why is it that any black person can walk through and white neighborhood safely while a white person cannot walk through a black neighborhood safely?

Your premise is incorrect.


Only if you assume that a "white" neighborhood is inherently safe and a "black" neighborhood is inherently unsafe--for anyone of the other race. There are plenty of white areas where ANY outsider--of any race--would be instantly set upon and possibly killed; think of "Deliverance" for instance (not a black person in sight). And there are black areas where no black person would dare set foot.

Just another stereotype run amok.

a_bilge_monkey: coco ebert: Oh, ha! I didn't even think of that because it's just a colloquialism my friends and I use when chatting. As a white person I should be careful of my phrasing, though.

Thank you. It's very similar to "those people", and I have a higher opinion of you.


I don't think that's true. African-Americans use that amongst one another, and it's not viewed as a pejorative. I tend to pick up dialects and usages easily so when I hear people use phrases I inadvertently start using them (I'm trying to avoid the "hey, I have African-American friends" line.) :) But indeed, I shouldn't be using phrases like that.

OneBrightMonkey: Go ahead and be racist all you want - free country.

However, when your newly minted GOP legislatures in states all over the country immediately set out to pass laws specifically targeting blacks and latinos in order to cut them from the rolls, prevent them from voting on days when black churches usually vote and make people present a form of ID that 25% of that specific group doesn't have, then I get pissed....and if people call you racist you had it coming.

I hope Barack can get this thing over the finish line, principally because I think he's been an effective president despite enormous challenges, but also because the GOP needs to be punished for the way they have behaved these last four years.

Historically abusing the fillibuster (from 1 on average a year to 70+ now), negotiating in bad faith and generally making the government an ineffective, national embarrassment.

DemonEater: Wow, seriously? That really sucks.
Just remember you have a sort of dysfunctional, incestuous, mentally ill second family here on Fark. You can even come over for Thanksgiving, as long as you bring beer and don't mind that tenpoundsofmoron is a distant cousin who comes and spreads feces on the bathroom wall.

/Seriously though, find yourself a group of liberals/secularist friends and you'll have a new family pretty damn quick.


Yeah, I'm done with them. It wasn't just this election cycle; I was told my ex putting me in the hospital was my fault for not obeying his ridiculous demands of control. It took the DA actively barring them from the courthouse when the ex was put on trial for them to finally get it... kind of...

Thanks, that's why I'm here on a Saturday :) I's gots a group of other misfits coming over for Thanksgiving turkey, too!

The Republicans are divided on this issue. Here's an interesting artcle from the New Yorker describing the G.O.P. split over whether to emphasize misogyny or racism

FTA: In one camp is the Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who says that his view that God is sometimes O.K. with rape is "gaining real traction with a key demographic: men who don't like women very much."


"I can't tell you how many misogynists have come up to me at my rallies and said, 'Thank you for saying what you said,' " he told reporters today. "I think they're like, finally, someone's taking a more nuanced position on rape."

(. . .)

Hoping to heal a possible rift with so little time left until Election Day, the R.N.C. chairman Reince Priebus said today that there is room for both views in today's Republican Party: "Our 'big tent' message to voters should be this: come for the misogyny, stay for the racism."

The black panther party claims to be the party of not racists? I don't follow.


Those aren't the Black Panthers. They are the New Black Panther party, a group the actual Black Panthers have dismissed as a bunch of AWing clowns.

They have about as much influence among minority leadership groups as your fantasy football team has on the NFL.
