#1 Of course he is being accused of racism with a headline like that. Whatever point he had is flushed when you bring race into it in a way that if not racist is so easily construed as so.

#2 Let me summarize: affirmative action and constitutional democracy don't mix.

#3 IF we survive this schmuck he's going to be recognized as setting back race relations by about fifty years in this country.

#5 Tavis Smiley has already said Obama has set back the blacks by five years...so if a screaming lib like Smiley (who is Black) says that, we can add an exponential value to the set back...I'm thinking we are on the verge of 1953 again.

#6 ACtually, I see his point, and he was being deliberately provocative.

Nobody is perfect, so everyone can be improved by criticism. However, if you are a reverse racist/feminist, then any criticism is regarded as invalid if it is directed at a black/mexican/woman. The point of playing the race card is to divert attention away from the validity of the criticism. Given this, the only person who people can feel safe to constructively criticize, and thus actually improve the situation, would be to elect a white male as president.

The problem. The REAL problem, is that ALL FORMS OF RACISM, forward AND reverse, are evil. Like everything else they undertake, Leftist liberals and leftist democrats believe themselves above natural and moral law, and thus believe that they can "do evil that good may come."

#7 I was listening to NPR, they stated that EVERY measure Obama has pushed has 'HURT' blacks.

I hope they're listening.

#8 NPR said that. Wow! Tavis Smiley also said this. Bob Gibbs said Obamacare rollout has been a failure. For some reason, there are too many people who are vested in keeping "O" in power for whatever reason. He is clearly incompetent but has gotten a pass on everything that he has screwed up. Had this been a white Republican Prez, there would have been a loud cry for impeachment long ago. This is clearly a failed Presidency but there is no momentum for impeachment--maybe liberal white guilt and fear of a black backlash?

#9 "NPR . . . stated that EVERY measure Obama has pushed has 'HURT' blacks.

I hope they're listening."

If you mean you hope blacks are listening to NPR, I doubt it, RJ. Except the black upper middle class "elites" who listen (NPR is the soporofic of choice for the upper middle class "elites" - who aren't hurting - of any color).

I doubt regular black people spend a lot of time listening to NPR, any more than regular white people do. :-(
