You're Supposed to be Ashamed of Racism, Byron

racism, bigotry, black, white, politics, byron, stupid, obama, conservative, democrat, republican, liberal,
Byron York seems to long for the good ole days when blacks only counted as 3/5 of a person:

On his 100th day in office, Barack Obama enjoys high job approval ratings, no matter what poll you consult. But if a new survey by the New York Times is accurate, the president and some of his policies are significantly less popular with white Americans than with black Americans, and his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are.

Just in case you didn't get the memo, Byron, black people are a part of this country. Their opinions even count! (Although this does explain a lot about the Republican party's popularity, or lack thereof.)

Unfortunately, some of the comments to the article are even worse:

DonL doesn't seem to understand that other people might see things differently than him: Unless blacks have a special ability to see greatness, they make serious deecisions based upon the color of one's skin -a fault that was condemned by Martin Luther King. His dream has turned into a nightmare of near worship of a Godless advocate of infanticide and abortion which on a percentage basis hurts the black community more that any other. Keeping the black community dependent upon government for their solutions is nothing more than a form of voluntary slavery. Those who recognize such actions might very well term it self-destruction.

Jack doesn't seem to understand exactly how much the media loves a scandal (and, ew!): Obama could bone his own children on the steps of Capitol Hill. The media would cheer the 'closeness' of the Obamas, and blacks would start defending incest. Those opposed to his behavior would be labeled racist and closed minded.

Uncle Joe's Patriotic Taxpayer revives the "welfare queens" meme:
The majority of blacks pay no income tax. Why wouldn't they favor Obama's tax and spend policies? For them it is only spending.

Chris Jones comes to the only conclusion possible, for a racist: The only conclusion one can reach is that blacks don't have a grasp of any of the issues. They think whatever Obama says or does is great because he shares the same skin color.

Okay, now I'm just depressed. RACISM. IS. NOT. OKAY. asshats.


  1. Wow. Of all those, I'd have to vote for Jack's comment as most disturbing. Just absolutely disgusting. What the hell is wrong with these people??

  2. That should have been moderated. I allow all kind of shit in my comments, but I would have rejected that.

    I think we're not nearly as far along with the whole racism thing as I'd hoped.

  3. Unless blacks have a special ability to see greatness, they make serious deecisions based upon the color of one's skinYes, they do, so what? If blacks weren't there to defend Obama--right or wrong he might be--the Republican white supremacist would have skinned him alive already.

    As a Latina at heart, I have come to understand that if we don't stand up for our people no-one else will. If we are going to leave behind centuries of abuse poverty and ignorance, we have to help each other, cause very few others give a damn.

    True, black Americans may be biased, but, haven't white American's been even MORE than biased throughout history?

    Some times the scale has to be overly compensated on the other side before balance can be found.

    Thank you for letting me rant, PF. These issues are too close to my little, hurt heart.

  4. Thank you for reading my rant, Lorena.

    My nephew is black. I can only imagine what he feels when he hears and sees things like this. It hurts my heart to no end that people look at my sweet, sensitive, funny, talented nephew and think "n***er".

  5. My question is does the average person read that and say "Oh noes what a racist dipshit." or do they go "Yeah, me too, you tell them darkies"

    I like to think it is the former but a very sad part of me suspects the latter.

  6. my boyfriend is also black. reading shit like this really upsets me (he won't read it... i wonder which of us is really correct, me reading or him not...?)

    also: "a Godless advocate of infanticide and abortion"
    are they refering to Obama? a CHRISTIAN? who is personally pro-life, he stated multiple times that he thought people should *not* get abortions (but that he thought he had no right to make that decision for others)
