Dems...it's not about race, it's not about race, it's not about race, it's not about race, it's not about race, it's not about race, it's not about ra


Anyone else sick of this yet?
Obama verged on making his color, or lack of it the entire point of his talk yesterday, managing to both defend a hideous racist (no not Strom Thurmond, or David Duke), and call his grandma one, and equating staying in church lead by a racist, identified by a racist and characterized by EXTREME racist, anti american statements a point of some kind of honor.

Hillary hints to the staff in a very Henry II manner, 'will no one rid me of this meddlesome half black' and the Sheehans, Ferraro et al take the cue and launch a campaign to remind us all, in case HE or HIS WIFE forget to remind us, Thomas a Obama is not 'white', and that he owes where he is to the fact of his non whiteness.

People.....

ENOUGH.

I
DON'T
CARE.

That's no mark of honor. That no whoopee for me.

I
JUST
DON'T
CARE
ABOUT
COLOR

Wasn't that the point of it all?
I wonder what THIS democrat, revolutionary leader, pioneer of humanity, great teacher, fearless fighter for equal OPPORTUNITY, and judge would make of it all, the way it has become TODAY?

Obama is now demanding an end to the "loop" of Rev. Jeremiah's racist statements that's playing all over the MSM. It's too disturbing. You know, like watching planes fly into the WTC and people jump off the top floors. So Obama wants a halt to the loop.

My slogan for the day: KEEP THE LOOP ROLLING!!!

All this with Wright and Obama is serving the purpose of dividing America along racial lines.

For example, read this by Courtland Milloy in today's WaPo. Excerpt:

Another friend, Sidney Strickland, an African American attorney and co-founder of a bank in Laurel, said: "He spoke frankly about the racial divide, the gap in black and white perceptions of reality. And because of his personal story, rooted in having a black father and white mother, he was able to offer himself as the bridge."

Yet, as Obama made clear in the speech, the racial gap is huge, and it would be a stretch indeed for anyone to even imagine that it could be spanned entirely by one man in a lifetime. He certainly knew about the breadth of the gap inside my head.

"Even for those blacks who did make it, questions of race and racism continue to define their worldview in fundamental ways," he said. "The memories of humiliation and doubt and fear have not gone away, nor has the anger and the bitterness. . . . That anger is not always productive. Indeed, all too often it distracts attention from solving real problems. . . . But the anger is real, it is powerful, and to simply wish it away, to condemn it without understanding its roots, only serves to widen the chasm."

Then Obama went on to say something that almost made me audaciously hopeful. He had the courage to connect slavery to black suffering today.

"Many of the disparities that exist . . . can be traced directly to inequalities passed on from an earlier generation," he said. He went on to connect the achievement gap with the legacy of inferior, racially segregated schools that still haven't been fixed "50 years after Brown versus Board of Education."

He noted that legalized discrimination had prevented blacks from owning property or getting jobs or loans to purchase homes. The result has been the inability of countless blacks to accumulate wealth and pass on the benefits to their children. Obama linked a lack of economic opportunity to crime and poverty.

Of course, some still could not handle the truth. Brit Hume of Fox News, for instance, thought Obama was "blaming whites" -- even though Obama specifically called on African Americans to take responsibility for their lives.

That was enough to make me want to wallow in the muck again. But Obama had made a point that was bigger than Hume or Buchanan or even himself. To get where you need to go, you've got to know where you came from. And even if Obama doesn't make it all the way to the White House, I sure like where he's taken me so far.


I heard a black pundit this morning say something like "Obama can't run for President and not talk about race....He's made everybody think about race."

Epa, I totally agree with you: "I don't care about race." But Obama is working this so that a large portion of our nation is thinking about race. And he excuses Jeremiah Wright for his black supremacism. I see all that as a huge step backwards.

Now, think about this....Suppose Obama gets shut out of the convention, out of the nomination. How many Americans will then feel anger at being shut out themselves from the self-governing process?

Obama's speech yesterday was masterful. It was a fine performance even though I personally want to call BS on what I heard. But I don't believe that many will do the same. Instead, they see Obama as a bridge over troubled water. How long before that song starts becoming Obama's theme song? I'm only half-kidding.

I thought there were parts of Obama's speech which were tremendously fair. And then, there were parts which were not. His excusing of Wright's racism, and his equating his church with America at large, showed the level of denial in which he lives.

The problem is, it is a psychological denial which is born of his own individual problems with his mother and father. His denial, his psychological state is not representative of the larger paradigm of the USA. He is not the archetype he is attempting to paint himself as.

He's not the Messiah, he's just a very naughty boy.
