Our president who chose to identify with blacks though he was only half black....

You are a few years older than I, Buz, and as I remember you telling it, you grew up in the United States, not on 55 Cancri d. How can you even force yourself to say something as mindcrackingly dumb as that above? Do you think our president had the choice to proclaim, in 1975 in the US, "Oh, I'm a white boy?"

What are you smoking, Buz?

What difference does Obama's racial identity make? Is there something offensive about Obama self identifying as black? Seriously, should he call himself a mulatto?

More to the point, why would anyone care about Buz's definition of racism?

With regards to President Obama, we know from his posts that Buz's hatred for the current US president knows no bounds. Absent that hatred, Buz should have no problem acknowledging that Obama seems to get along just fine with white people.

And yes Strom Thurmond (his color-blind rosco not withstanding) was a racist. But Strom isn't the issue here. He's dead.

How about giving me those links showing where people inside the movement have stood up to control or fight the racists in there midst. Find any yet?

How about the expulsion of Mark Williams by the Tea Party Express?

quote:
A California radio host and leader of the Tea Party Express, Williams had labeled the Manhattan boro president a "Jewish Uncle Tom" and President Obama an "Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug."

But when he posted a satirical letter supposedly from "the Colored People" to President Lincoln praising slavery, that apparently crossed the line.
