"We have gone back so many years," Judy Burris told the Republic. "He's divided all the races. I hate him for that."

Ah...the same laments we heard when the slaves were emancipated.  Everything was just ducky before that.

I'm sure the fine Ms. Burris here was fully open and embracing of other races and cultures before Obama came and farked it all up.

Gotta love white people lamenting how we've gone backwards in race relations because someone made them think about it for two seconds.

Deanna Bartram, a 17-year-old University of Arizona student from Black Canyon City, lashed out at people who call her racist for not supporting Obama. She believes Obama supporters use the "race card" against her because they disagree with her political message.

"Obama is ruining American values. He is ruining the Constitution. He needs to go back to where he came from because obviously, he is a liar," she said. "I am not racist. I am part Indian. Obama's half Black, half White."

 While there are people who pull the race card reflexively...honey, you are a racist.

Why do Americans who are like 1/32 Indian or they just have some family rumor of there being "Indian blood" in the family or something always like to pull the "Oh, I'm part Indian - my family told me so" card? I see this everywhere, not just related to politics. Hell, before The Lone Ranger came out, Johnny Depp was making the rounds at NPR talking about how he thinks he's part Indian.

"There's so much extremism in Arizona," said Jonathan Rines, a retired member of the U.S. Navy, of the 'Black Sheep' chant. "The people who are doing that are a vocal minority."

Are ... you one of those people?

The moment the Indian Wars were over, Americans began to find them curious and wanted to know more. Not the Government, mind you. They still hate Native Americans. But the people are curious and think their struggles for survival and independence are cute and fascinating. "Living off the land" is very popular, and since they had magic ways of doing so, everyone wants to have a little of that magic.

Or something.

I think it's a Get Out of Racism card.  An exemption that requires no proof beyond the claim itself.  And conveniently does not require ethnic looks in most cases.

No, it's just really terrible grammar. What the sentence means by "of the 'Black Sheep' chant" is that Mr. Rines is speaking about the chant. For some reason, people who write headlines on sensationalist websites and newspapers love the "of the x" clause. You see it in headlines like: "Obama, of the Budget Negotiations: We must hold together..."

I'm legitimately surprised they actually let their racism show.  Usually they're good about hiding it so they can be outraged when someone suggests racism.

Racism is gone, which is why we had a week's coverage of Black Race Riots (of which there were none, but they called one march where a tv was stolen and a window was broken a "riot") and no coverage of a nearly identical white mob breaking/stealing.

Good point. Why doesn't Fox News lead the way then? Or are they too busy coming up with Obama's Baby Momma or making hay about Jay Z and Obama talking or other things that TOTALLY don't point out and highlight and underscore and italicize that Obama is black. The only time Fox News cares that he's half white is when someone calls them out on their racism.

The GZ thing is funny to me, because it shows how stupid so many white people are about other cultures. My High School was 92% Latino. Most Latinos there had some embracing of black culture superficially but HATED black people. Some wish they could wear a white hood. White people think that minorities are in harmony and solidarity. It's the opposite.

There are some folks that take that and run with it though. If you participate in pow wows or whatever and keep the culture alive, then you ARE Native American Indian. Here in the Northeast, most Native Am. Indians are black looking. It's all that's left.

So, because some of the things stated in the headline were said instead of printed on signs, you think subby was trolling. You are ignoring blatant racism due to a technicality from a random person rewriting a headline. And this from someone incapable of using any punctuation whatsoever.

At least these Mainstream Republicans were brave enough to show up in public saying what All Republicans really believe. Any Republican who DOESN'T show up at a rally screaming about how it hates women and non-Caucasians is merely displaying the cowardice inherent in the Mainstream Racist Republican mindset. Kudos to the Republicans of Arizona for being slightly less pants-shiattingly afraid of Obama than the rest of You People.

Having such a small amount of Indian blood that far in the past more than likely means one of his ancestors raped a woman who he probably referred to as a "squaw". That's really not such a great Get Out of Racism card.
