There is a lot of unhappiness on the left with Obama. Scouring their blogs and reading comments, I've noticed a disturbing trend. An increase in racial language. Like "The Half-black Hope". That's he's being a good "boy" by doing the work of his corporate masters. Saying that he only got elected because being "the first black president" was a good story.
This is unfortunate. Obama, at least in my view, has definitely underperformed and should be called out for doing so. But this creeping racial language is not good. Let's hope it doesn't grow.
I can't understand where it is coming from. It isn't as if there's some sort of long history of racism in the Democratic party, so where this is coming from is a complete mystery.
if you're going to post, 8:41, can't you post something original? not something we've all heard regurgitate a million times before. we all know where you get your material from.
try rubbing your two brain cells together and come up with something new. wrinkle your brow. maybe that'll help.
Good thing the Republicans haven't a racist bone in all of their bodies. It's also great that the USA has never had any history of racism to blemish our record. Anyone who says it did is a racist.
Yeah! Just ask Allen West and Tim Scott how the Southern Strategy works these days.
How many black Democratic congressmen represent white majority districts?
Don't worry. Some day, in the far future, a black man will be elected by white Democrats as their representative.
