Racial Group Guilt

This is just to gauge how you feel about racial group guilt when it comes to politics and cultural topics. Has the media or any organization ever made you feel that you couldn't debate about the topic of race because of the specific race you belong to?

We see in Islam a religion that traces its origins back to God's call on Abraham. We share your belief in God's justice, and your insistence on man's moral responsibility. We thank the many Muslim nations who stand with us against terror. Nations that are often victims of terror, themselves."

"Some of the comments that have been uttered about Islam do not reflect the sentiments of my government or the sentiments of most Americans. Islam, as practiced by the vast majority of people, is a peaceful religion, a religion that respects others. Ours is a country based upon tolerance and we welcome people of all faiths in America."

moderation - Ahhhhh, I seem to remember GWB demonstrating more than a passing fancy in KILLING as many Islamists as he could spot out in the open and many that were elsewhere. His father, before him, didn't display much restraint with the use of power along the "Highway of Death" during Iraq's exodus out of Kuwait.

Now, I'm not suggesting that I'm in complete agreement with all of the tactics of either Bush but, sometimes when you knock down a hornet's nest, you stay at it until the hornet's are dead.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I see Obama keeping his rhetoric AND our military response to Islamic provocations to a minimum. Conversely and in keeping with his record of bad decision designs, I witnessed him TRYING to turn Ferguson, MO INTO a hornet's nest, completely unnecessarily.

I doubt if Alfred E. Newman would have the same progressive political bent as our glorious leader, but I'm convinced he would make more equitable decisions as to our survival and safety.

"I NOTICED he can't allow himself to utter "Islamic Terrorists" or anything close to it. Oh, he'd probably like their support too, but doesn't dare ask for it, at least not openly." They same could and can be said of GW, kunec.Why not take this opportunity,now, to do so?

NasCarNut - WHEN you posted "Obama became the first president to use the words "lesbian," "bisexual" and "transgender" in a State of the Union on Tuesday night, issuing an historic call for protections for individuals of any sexual orientation.

Now why hasn't a white president ever used these words??...GOWP?? (unquote)

I HAD THE BIGGEST BELLY LAUGH I'VE EVER EXPERIENCED IN RESPONSE TO ANYTHING ANYONE HAS EVER POSTED ON THESE THREADS!!

Are you freakin kidding me? Obama takes that stand because he still needs as much support as he can muster and that group makes up a portion of it.

I NOTICED he can't allow himself to utter "Islamic Terrorists" or anything close to it. Oh, he'd probably like their support too, but doesn't dare ask for it, at least not openly.

You took the taco with that suggestion. LOL

Do you honestly think if an Allen West or Dr Ben Carson ran on the republican ticket I would prefer them to be in a field somewhere as a slave?

Of course not their repugs...

There are many other "minority" candidates I would support but I don't look to race or gender when choosing a candidate. I look to policy, and couldn't care less about their race, gender of sexual proclivities.

whatever makes you feel good Still...all you GOWP make me LOL!!...

I do think you are better than the cotton field comment.

Obama is president for a few reasons 1. Poor republican candidates 2. Poor economy

correction-Obama was the first black to win the nomination of a major party in a United States presidential election...

NasCarNut

i guess if you cannot debate the point scream racism.

I believe your using the race card by saying he is only pres. b/c he's black, or darked skinned as you put it...I couldn't care less the color of his skin...I feel he's done some good and some not so good like all presidents have done...

Posted 359 days ago.

NasCarNut

He would not be president if not for his color, 

if that's how you feel so be it, I just don't think he was elected Twice b/c of his color...

Posted 359 days ago.

NasCarNut

They were calling his CANDIDACY historic

maybe b/c he was the first black man to run for president would be my guess...what would be your explanation??...

Posted 359 days ago.

NasCarNut

People like you still use race to deflect legitimate criticism as seen here.

and people like you still have a problem with black people having a place in this country besides the cotton fields...GOWP

Now why hasn't a white president ever used these words??...GOWP??

Posted 359 days ago.

I assume they called it "historic" b/c he was the first black president in history...duh

Posted 359 days ago.

NasCarNut

to try and label those that woted for or against based on race are no different in

Still said "they wanted the black guy" sure some may have voted for him for that reason but I don't feel that's why he won Twice...
