Not everyone is being good on Good Friday.


It's Good Friday and my man racism is still messing with me. (h/t Celina) Poor O, the wingnuts find all kinds of stuff to throw at him. Now he is being associated with some of our deepest and darkest fears as god fearing A-merry-cans: The black brute taking it to the bedroom and raping our women.

Oh field, relax, you lefties did a lot worse to George Bush and you didn't hear folks crying about all kinds of isms. It's just politics field, it has nothing to do with race. That pic you put up there with this post is just an example of god fearing A-merry-cans showing their frustrations and disgust with a man who wants to take us down the road of Socialism.

I see, is that why this guy refused to treat patients who voted for Obama? I thought doctors took some kind of oath to treat everybody in a fair and ethical way? Oh well, maybe it's not racism with the good doc, but the folks who came up with the cartoon...I am not so sure about, them.

But seriously, I need to quit. I am going to stop chasing racism in post racial A-merry-ca. I guess there is no need for it anymore. Not when everything is so race neutral. Hell, just recently, The National Review had on online symposium on black unemployment and they didn't even need any black folks to talk about it. In post racial A-merry-ca there is no longer a need for division based on race. Nope, a panel of white experts is all we need to tell us why black folks are unemployed.

"Well Bob, it seems that the blacks in A-merry-ca are unemployed because they simply don't want to work. Yes, that and the fact that many of them figure that since their ancestors worked so hard during slavery America owes them something. What a shame... "

But seriously, isn't this analogous to having a bunch of Jamaicans holding a symposium about the effects of too much snow on depression? Is it just me or does the whole thing seem a bit surreal?Oh hell, maybe it's just me. Check out the comments after the link I gave you.

Finally, I am going to have to find a religion and soon. I can't let another Good Friday come and go without truly appreciating it. The only thing I associate with Easter is Jamaican bun and cheese. Which reminds me, I have to give my baker in West Philly a call. I better enjoy all the Jamaican bun while I can. Why? Because pretty soon in post racial A-merry-ca, someone else will be baking those bad boys.

It's good to hear that you are having a change of heart. It's good for the soul. Happy Easter.

It's post racial America because Obama was elected. But it doesn't mean the end of racism-that will always continue.

Come on Field, does this look like a guy who would rape a woman?


He's no Bill Clinton, that's for sure. You'd better watch your ass though!

They are convinced that for the republicans and conservatives to get back to power, they have to convince Mr. Joe Independent thst Obama isn't Presidential timber. He has to be another nigger. Just like that guy who shot someone in the bottoms last night, just like that rapper on TV.

He can't be the erudite, young man that is outclassing them on a regular basis. He has to be something seedy, evil, something dirty that plants the seed of doubt in a otherwise rational person's mind.

The point of this cartoon was to show the black guy that is Obama raping the pureness that is some people's view of America. Racial overtones anyone?

When you believe, as Republicans do, that every mention of race or sexuality is qualitatively identical, and that black people and gay people tyrannize white straight people, then calling someone out for racism or homophobia is a grave insult that wipes the slate clean on the original bigotry that inspired the response. I know, it's crazy. They're crazy.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have a lot more respect for Stormfront members and other loud-and-proud racists who publicly own their views. This "I didn't say it, some liberal is setting me up, but if I did say it it wouldn't be racism, because the real racists are the people who tell me I'm racist" bullshit from the GOP mainstream is the stuff of whiny cowards. They can't even be bigots competently.

They do not believe in reality. These are folks who can be convinced that the earth is 6000 years old, war is peace, and that they cannot believe their lying eyes. Point out their misspellings on their protest signs, and instead of shame they feel proud of their ignorance. Point out that what they're told is not true, and they label you a Socialist *and* a Nazi - not understanding just how different those two labels are. These are not smart people we're talking about here, and our efforts to enlighten them about reality are akin to an attempt at doing the same for C.H.U.D.

Field is right, the comments section of the symposium on black unemployment (by an all white panel) is choice. My favorite so far:

"Oh good.. because white people get so few opportunities to tell black people what to do and why they're fucked."

Sarcasm and irony worth reading.

I agree with the psychologist that racism should be a DSM category because it IS a mental disease. Actually, it is a spiritual disease, which for some is treatable, but for others it is not.

He is losing popularity because he is an arrogant leftist, not because of white racism. For one thing, he's not even black.

Wasn't "arrogant" a quality often ascribed to the last president? Went to Google to see:

about 2,070,000 for "bush arrogant"

about 1,930,000 for "obama arrogant"

So I guess Bush is considered uppitier than Barry.

Let's try it in a sentence:

That prezdent Boosh sho' be one uppity mutha fucka! We gots ta get him outta dat office and gets us a half black man in dat chair!

You are such a pompous tool.

Mitt Romney was here yesterday.

The below comment is the reason why he will be the one that the Republicans put up against Obama in 2012.

From the(Charleston) Post & Courier, today.

"Our country needs saving! Especially from the enemies WITHIN OUR HOUSE! It's time to clean house and send all the crooks, commies and America haters home!!!! Mitt Romney is definitely a good, honest, God fearing, America loving man! God bless him! I sure hope he runs again ---- He would have my vote!!"

Wingnuts eat this shit up.

But Romney will lose. Badly.

To the Anonymous poster, those stats that you quote are funny due to the fact that Obama has only been in office for 14 1/2 months and "The Bush" was there for 8 years.

Nice try, Anonymous wingnut.

Happy Easter Asshole.

----------------

Let's see, Bush was in office for eight years and Obama for one year, yet they are almost tied in the number of google hits for arrogance. So that would make Obama about 8 times more uppity than Bush? And he hasn't even invaded any more countries. Hmmm...

Another 85 year old vet? Another lily white pseudo-wingnut? Some dumb hick who reads off her hand? Please tell us you have more than that. You won't even get 20 seats in the midterms; Fox News is teasing you wingnuts, thinking that you are going to get laid in November and in 2012.

The majority (not all)of doctors are no longer interested in medicine,that being the least of their concerns. Instead of the Hippocratic Oath,it seems that greed is their new credo.
The one in Florida is a prime example, but my thoughts are that he underestimates the morals and values of his patients and he may be in for an unpleasant surprise when they walk away!
What can any reasonable person feel about a medical profesional with those words, Probably fear. I know I would!

As for that cartoon,it just goes to show the level of ignorance that still permeates America. Those hillbilly inbreeding jokes come to mind, dunno why hehehe!

No, that would be the worst thing; to make a martyr out of a fool.

You are correct, the republican front runners are a bunch of politcal midgets, but they might get lucky and pick someone not on your list. It won't take a giant to beat him. The emporer has shed a lot clothing after only one year, he'll be buck-naked by 2012. Things will be so bad by then he'll have to throw Biden under that big bus of his and run with Hillary.

Sorry, Gregory, not this time around.

A sporting event (a major Irish rugby match) has trumped Good Friday religious observances this year, resulting in the opening of 110 pubs.

Could it be, after all these priest pedophile scandals, the Catholic church is losing its grip on the people?

Or could it be that millions of dollars will be lost, if the pubs are closed?

Oh, what the lure of money will do! Even the faithful struggle mightily when faced with a dilemma of conscience: Mammon vs. God.

Gregory said...

Tersi,
True, 110 pubs in Limerick were open this year because of the Munster - Leinster match, which was played in Thormond Park.

The other 9500 or so pubs in the Republic were closed.

Just as usual.

socrates said...

It looks like we're stuck with Obama or no Democrat in 2012. More than likely, Obama will triangulate well enough to last until 2016. Then perhaps a true progressive lefty will get in. This is beyond race. We're up the creek. Obama seems to be doing nothing better than putting lipstick on a pig. I'm sick of this lesser of two evils crap. I'm fed up with illegal wars, high unemployment, and spy factories. Though violence is never an option. The wingnuts, however, are falling into the trap of the military-industrial complex. It's like one of those Chinese finger torture thingies, but replace that with the internet and despicable bloggers like Alex Jones. The more the wingnuts go off the deep end, the stronger is the war machine. Or maybe Obama is trying to amass political collateral in order to be able to become a great historical player. Problem is while Obama's skin colour is black, his soul is cracker toned. This is beyond race.

The most progressive collective act this country has managed in hundreds of years is to elect a black man president.

The kind of progressivism you're hoping for comes infrequently, perhaps only once or twice in a lifetime, and, then, in pieces, and not thoroughgoing:

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Voting Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act.

Note that the Equal Rights Amendment was never ratified by all the states, although the basic premise of the amendment may be seen in some court decisions, and certain legislation.

Even after electing a black president, a substantial number in this country still believe Obama to be an illegal alien, to be the Antichrist, a socialist with communist leanings, and Hitlerian ambitions, and is using health care reform as a kind of black reparations.

With so many in this country more regressive than progressive, it's a miracle that Obama was elected at all.

2: Doctor's won't do abortions.(In his Defense, they didn't have many N-words around in Hippo-Crates Day)
3: Doctors won't give any "Deadly Medicine" which is basically everything used to treat Cancer...

Filled Negro:

One of the things that I speculated about upon the presidency of a "favorable" Black man was the ability of people like YOU to allow him to be "The President Of The United States" and not merely YOU living vicariously though the Black man in the White House. Notice I said "Favorable". Clarence Thomas is called more names that Black men used to hear just prior to being lynched from the AfroSpear Klan than from those who are popularly labeled as "white racists".

Its interesting that you viewed the cartoon as a violent RAPE, taking the WORST CASE SCENARIO. It is merely playing off of the symbolism of "having your way" with someone. "Bum rushing" them.

I would prefer if all sides did not traffic in this salacious imagery. It seems, however, that the BEST TIME for a person like you to raise their protestations is when YOUR FRIENDS engage in such scurrilous behavior.

Tersi - these big 3 spending bills are now 49% of the federal budget, streaming toward 62% in the next 10 years.

Ironically as the "Demand Side Economy" Progressives saw these as the feather in their cap, analysts say that THESE will be the programs that take the nation's financial situation under.

Tersi - I hope you realize that there were MULTIPLE "Civil Rights Acts" passed through time.

In addition if there is one community that has NOT BEEN HELPED by "Majority Minority voting districts" it is the PEOPLE WITHIN THESE DISTRICTS. These districts drawn based on RACE have a higher than average poverty rate. (The NY 16th district has the HIGHEST poverty rate in the nation).

Ironically as middle class Blacks in Chicago MOVE OUT OF their gerrymandered districts the district lines are changed to RE-ENSNARE THEM, expanding out to the suburbs which they have moved.

Tersi - I believe that these districts drawn by race should be made ILLEGAL. This would afford better leadership within as now the elected officials would have to appeal to COMPETENCY and EFFECTIVENESS rather than Racism Chasing, finding the most electable LEFTWING extremist they can find.

When you listen to the PRESCRIPTIONS for solving Black unemployment as told by West and Earl O Hutchenson and others - their RACISM CHASING theories are just as flawed and unsavory as anything this all White panel could ever come up with.

How is it that after assuming political control over these hot beds of unemployment (Milwaukee and Buffalo, etc) that the Progressive has any credibility in detailing how to address Black unemployment?

Even yesterday's unemployment report had the NATIONAL number remain at 9.7%.

Your buddy Babatunde (or whatever his name is from Jack and Jill) was on CNN's John King show. He failed to mention that for Blacks the rate ROSE from 15.8% up to 16.5%!!!

Instead he talked about GREEN JOBS!!!

YOU are the clueless one.

I don't know Maria, I used to be a medical secretary. Lots of doctors really do get jaded after a while and if they did enter the profession to help people, after a while they are burnouts.


All the paperwork, malpractice premiums, legal issues you name it they are bogged down. That coupled to increasing costs to run businesses and increasingly reduced reimbursement from insurance companies has caused a lot of their assinine behavior. Also the profit incentive that they can get by being on the Big Pharma's dole is also a huge conflict of interest... Greed is real and affects everyone and when it gets to doctors its even worse because your health is on the line.


The truth is that medicine does not need to be a for profit enterprise. Health is priceless. The sooner we realize that, the easier it will be to obtain real reform...

Careful. If your Teabagger friends piss off enough people, that "negrocracy" might last way beyond 2016, especially if you lovely GOP folk keep fielding candidates who can't find their asses with their own hands.

Meanwhile, an anonymous calls one of our regular commenters a "racist jackass" while behaving like a racist jackass. Guess that's White Privilege for you. The majority can act like condensating assholes to the minority and call it "constructive criticism", but if the minority behave in the same manner, it's called "whining", "complaining", "being uppity", etc...

The sooner Whites can bury the race issue, the quicker they can forget about it and the sooner they can "speak freely" in the most oblivious, dunderheaded manner. If you're lucky, maybe words like "pickininny" will make a comeback in the Caucausian-American vernacular.

I don't ever remember being the criticism of Bush being this nasty. Mainly, it is disgruntled voters who didn't vote for Obama and people who are frustrated with how things are changing at a glacial pace. People can pretend that it isn't racial, but there is subtle and not-so-subtle racism going on here. People want change, but they want a certain kind of change. If you can't offer better solutions, then stop complaining and trying to rake Obama over thee coals because he is actually trying to do something.

How do a bunch of protesters "oppress" the government? Obama and the progressives are in power. Did you ever stop to think that they control the propaganda machine? That perhaps it is the opposition Tea Party protesters that are being "demonized and dehumanized"? Legitimate concerns about the expansion of government power are dimissed as in the most crude way as being solely about the race of the president. Do you not link skin color to the worst stereotypes of whites - "White = Racist"?

Don't blame Democrats. Teabaggers created that image ("as ignorant, greedy, racist hicks") all by their lonesome.

When Teabaggers rail against the real threat, a Wall Street amassing billions at the expense of Main Street, I'll take them seriously.

It's not government spending that created our economic freefall, but a mostly laissez faire economic system championed by Teabaggers, Republicans and conservatives.

Of course, it won't hurt if the persons they find to replace these "lefties" are Republican "RIGHWING extremist."

@CF_"YOUR JOB is to practice HEALTHY LIFESTYLES which are FREE so that you don't have to run up the cost of HEALTH CARE which is NOT FREE!!!!""

You insist on conflating "FREE" with not for profit.

Doctors can still receive adequate compensation for their output:

* Give up their TIME in STUDY
* Apply their TALENTS to create drugs and medical procedures
* Endure the personal sacrifices so that they help others.


And still health care can be a nonprofit proposition--the two aren't incompatible.

What is incompatible is health care for profit. The two clash. That's why we see thousands die annually, and/or financially ruined in pursuit of health care that is beyond their ability to pay.

I'm sure this reality isn't causing you sleepless nights. You can always fall back on your healthcare guiding principle to assuage your conscience:

"YOUR JOB is to practice HEALTHY LIFESTYLES which are FREE so that you don't have to run up the cost of HEALTH CARE which is NOT FREE!!!!"

If "healthy lifestyles" always assured health, we wouldn't need health insurance plans would we?

Well, fIrst I think one would have to at least appraise something as being attractive in order to possibly "fear" it. Furthermore, whatever "sexual power" a white female has to weaken you as a black male is not my fear, but more so your burden.

I was simply mentioning a well known, yet unfortunate general observation when financial resources are left to the hands of most black males who are weakened by such "sexual power". That's was all :)

Those fellows don't look like trerrosrists to me, Field. I see a gay-looking Pakistani and a gay-looking Black guy sitting way too close together on a couch.

The picture is of our president and Sohale Siddiqi (also Hal Siddiqi), who was the best friend and roommate of Barack Obama while he attended Columbia University in the early 1980s. He is identified as “Sadik” in Obama’s memoir, Dreams From My Father. Obama describes Saddiqi as “a short, well-built Pakistani”. Siddiqi was from Karachi, Pakistan and came to America from London on a tourist visa. He overstayed his visa becoming an illegal alien.

Obama first met Siddiqi when he attended Occidental College in Los Angeles. Obama was living with a group of Pakistani students when Siddiqi arrived for a visit. Obama transferred to Columbia University and lived off campus with Siddiqi. Siddiqi was not a student and made his living working in restaurants.

Before leaving Occidental for Columbia, Obama had an encounter with a visiting professor, Dr. John C. Drew. Drew recalls: "Obama’s main support at Occidental was his wealthy patron, Mohamed Hasan Chandoo. Drew thought Obama was gay and wealthy because of the nice clothes that he wore and his closeness to Chandoo."

Like was pointed out before, this man has issues.

CF,
So, Cindy Sheehan and Jesse Jackson are teabaggers? That's going to come as quite a shock to some people. No one does Non Sequiturs like you, a constant source of unintentional humour.


"His father, Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr., watched his son in action, saying, "I've been impressed." Taking a break from basking in fatherly pride, the elder Jackson took a mosie outside to watch the Teabagger protest. Sam Stein of The Huffington Post videotaped Jackson confronting a mass of Tea Party protesters outside of the Capitol.

One protester yelled at Jackson, "Get a real job, you commie." Another Teabagger cleverly stuck with the important issue at hand (health care) and hollered, "Father another child out of wedlock while you're at it." A black Tea Party protester used a bullhorn to question whether Jackson was there when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Just for the record, the photographic evidence of Jackson's presence accompanies this article."

@Maria: I wish I could agree with your statement, and while I do agree that your ideal is true for many, it just simply is not so for the majority.

In lieu of the fact that I have worked with doctors my entire adult life, both in the US where I was born and raised and in P.R when I relocated here, and have seen how they go about this business, I can and should not delude myself, and neither should you or anyone else about the greed that has blanketed the entire health system/industry. If you don’t have a “good” insurance, or enough money to cover your care, it (your medical care) will be deficient or null. Doctor’s fees are way over the top and I won’t even begin with the pharmaceuticals,that are a whole other topic!
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “no tickee no laundree? Well with doctors and hospitals it’s “no money no medicine” see the local witch doctor LOL! This is wrong. It shouldn’t be this way. I’ve heard doctors from Canada and England and they have standard set fees and they live well and are not as greedy as their counterparts in the U.S.

socrates said...

Hi Tersi. You wrote, "The most progressive collective act this country has managed in hundreds of years is to elect a black man president."

You can't possibly mean that. Not many even vote. Maybe 40-50%. Then there were all those votes for McCain. On this simple mathematical level, Obama winning the Presidency wasn't a collective act.

Then for anyone to be amazed that a Black man won the election, that is really settling. Not to diminish the nasty racist past and present of America, an analogy is with the Red Sox winning the World Series. It happened. It's time to get over it.

Obama is the house Negro, if I'm to use Field's glasses. I thought the big message of MLK was that people should be judged on the content of their character not their skin.

I also think your numbers on regressive voters versus progressive ones is skewed. I think the problem is one more of apathy than we are that conservative on the whole.

I don't think it was much of a miracle Obama was elected. The man was smooth talking up hope. The country as a whole were fed up with the Republicans.

The problem is the military industrial complex. I want to see that thing cut by 80%. That is where the money is being drained. All on needless war and spying. They are all over the internet. The problem is that just about the only people ranting about it are conspiracy theory freaks. So the status quo churns along.

Great thinkers need to figure out ways to destroy triangulation and military/FBI expenditures. The CIA needs to be disbanded. I know I probably sound too far out there, and that these things will never happen. But dissolving the War Industry is our only real hope to turn things around.

I've been over the joy of a black person being elected President ever since realising Obama is really Republican-lite. It's very sad what this world represents. Anyone who is still thinking in terms of race and can't see the big picture are actually not much better than useful idiots. I know I am all talk too. I'm sorry but I have no power. I did the best I could as a blogger. Unless we can build up a super blog to compete with Huffington that is authentic left and speaking truth to power, we're basically pissing into the wind.

The internet has been bought and sold. It's basically an income generator for a few, with the rest being mostly psychological operations and vehicles for entrapment.

Grifters and disinfo make up 95% of it. Field Negro knows what I'm talking about. He used to post at My Left Wing. That almost became a power. But the blog owner turned out to be a loser. Positive social movement through the internet never had a chance.

I don't blame Francis Holland for his fixation on Markos Moulitsas. It doesn't even matter if he did or didn't receive a CIA paycheck. He said it's a liberal institution with its heart in the right place. His blog was one of the only ones that ever had a chance to make a difference, and it was rigged from the get-go.

I'm telling you, the internet is rigged. Unless we put together a supersite and figure out a fair way to drive off trolls, disinfo or otherwise, we are all wasting our time. We're playing right into the hands of triangulation.

The military needs to be cut by 80% with that money being put into humanity. We need to figure out how to get the ball rolling towards that end. Otherwise one needs to admit this is all just some warped form of wasting time.

I can't say whether abortion will be the issue in deciding who will win the next presidential race, but one thing that is shaping up, it's probably not going to be a "middle of the road" Republican.

"They [Tea Partiers] are angry not just at what they describe as the socialist policies of U.S. President Barack Obama. They also feel Republican politicians have betrayed the party's ideals. For many in the movement, purging the party of moderate Republicans is a major goal."

Tersi said...

@socrates

I
We can quibble over the meaning of the word "collective," but there's no denying that Obama's ascension to the presidency was achieved by "group" assent, not majority assent.

Although blacks turned out in huge numbers, it still required the votes of non-blacks to get him over the electoral top.

And yes, I believe that the election of Obama as the Commander and Chief of this country was a progressive act, not withstanding the nation's disenchantment with Bush.

Hillary Clinton, and many others, I feel, stood a better chance. Obama was an unknown to many. It took more than his patented references to "Hope," and "Yes We Can," to transcend race, and politics as usual, to best his many opponents.

In him people saw a capable, and potentially transformative leader.

How do you explain Obama's popularity outside the United States?

And yes, that Obama won, amazes me. It amazed many, not the least of which was John McCain, and fellow Republicans.

To put so much political power, so much military power, so much persuasive power, into the hands of a black man would have been unthinkable a couple of decades ago.

And not all "House Negroes" are sell outs.

Obama is no more a "sell out" than his white male predecessors.

Every president has had to face the realities of office, and give a nod to power brokers, and the political climate into which they emerged.

No president has been 100 per cent his own man. Obama is no exception. He's not only restrained by forces within his own party, but by forces external to his party.

I'm a realist. Under him, we won't see a true progressive agenda, although he'll have some progressive outcomes, satisfying to some, but disappointing to others.

For example, I see a repeal of "Don't ask, Don't tell," under his watch.

I can't say with certainty which group of voters, regressive or progressive, are in the majority, nor the political proclivity of the disaffected.

A preponderance of political activity currently is coming from regressives, with some liberal blow back, mostly as a response to a threat from the Right to kill health care reform.

Yet, I'd say conservatism holds sway, but by a slim margin. We need look no further than the recent health care reform efforts.

By all estimates the health care reform bill that was signed into law is not a radical piece of legislation. It has no "public option," and it's certainly not "single payer," that for which many progressives hoped for, and fought for.

Yet, you'd think that all the demons in Hell would break loose, and consume us all with brimstone at the signing of the legislation, given all the months of Republican resistance to the bill, the lies, distortions, and outright deceptions (the pull the plug on Grandma meme) that attended its passage.

Tersi said...

@socrates

II
Those opposed to the bill edged out those who supported it, but not by a large margin.

Now that it has passed congress, and has been signed into law, we're seeing a slight uptick in Americans favoring it, with 79% of Democrats saying it's "Good Thing," and 76% of Republicans saying it's a "Bad Thing."

Eisenhower's warning about the military industrial complex has indeed been proven true over the past several decades leading up to the Viet Nam war, and after.

As you say, it should be eviscerated. But there's a larger threat, a bigger problem looming on the horizon threatening the economic wellbeing of this country, if not the world, and should get equal attention, and that is the world-wide, ubiquitous, shadow banking system that is 600 trillion dollars strong.

I've railed against it here. Congress continues to show an unwillingness to reform the financial system sufficiently to force transparency, and to remove the threat of "too big to fail" that saw the transfer of risk, away from those who created it, to the tax payer, while those who created the risk rewarded themselves with obscene bonuses compliments of the American worker (actually the working poor), families, and the middleclass.

On this we can agree:

"The military needs to be cut by 80% with that money being put into humanity. We need to figure out how to get the ball rolling towards that end."

"Really Tersi, 13% of the population didn't elect the president alone? White people, who comprise 75% of the population, decide who is president. It was white voters that elected Barack Hussein Obama."

You must be reading with your "eyes wide shut." And on top of that, you're grossly mistaken. Minorities played an equally important role in Barack Obama's election as POTUS.

Wbites voted in a greater number for McCain than Obama by 12%. Here's the breakdown:

"Nearly all (95%) black voters cast their ballot for Democrat Barack Obama. Among Latino voters, 67% voted for Obama while 31% voted for Republican John McCain. Among Asian voters, 62% supported Obama and 35% voted for McCain. In contrast, white voters supported McCain (55%) over Obama (43%)."

But for your elightenment, and information, let me pass this to you:

How and Where Did Minorities Elect Obama?

How and where did minorities affect Obama’s victory? In 2004, John Kerry took 20 states, in
11 of which (including DC), whites voted for Democrats. Yet because whites voted for Republicans in the other 9, minorities carried those states for John Kerry.

Moving to 2008, Obama carried 29 states. Among these, whites voted Democratic in 19 states; and in the
remaining 10 of these states, Obama’s victories depended on minorities. (See Figure 19.)

Yet the 10 states where minorities made the difference for Obama, were largely different than the
9 where minorities made the difference for Kerry. This can be seen by comparing Map 4, which
shows the “blue states”, that Kerry carried in 2004, with Map 5 which shows the blue states,
that Obama carried in 2008.

Each map depicts those states where whites made the difference
for the Democratic candidate and those where minorities made the difference for the Democrat.
The 3 states where minorities made the difference for both Kerry and Obama were Pennsylvania,
Maryland and New Jersey.

Yet, the 7 new states where minorities made the difference for
Obama (and which also voted Republican in 2004) included Fast Growing purple states, Nevada,
New Mexico, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida as well as the Slow Growing purple states of
Indiana and Ohio.

So, did minorities really win the election for Obama?

As shown above, they were responsible for his wins in several Fast Growing purple states in the mountain west and southeast. In addition, they made a difference in key Slow Growing purple states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana where the white Republican margin shrunk enough to allow strong Democratic leaning minorities to prevail.

Thus, the minority support for Obama was instrumental in his success, but not just because it
occurred in Fast Growing purple states with rising Hispanic populations. It also required
shrinking white Republican margins along with large minority Democratic margins in states
with smaller minority (largely black) populations.

The latter is not something that I predicted far in advance of the election , but came about because of low white turnout and enthusiasm for the Republican candidate, McCain. These circumstances set the stage for minorities to make a substantial contribution toward the election of Barack Obama.

The Teabaggers' words and actions are too close to those of people who have historically wanted to see Blacks in a subservient position, whether it be physical, socio-economical or even spiritually and mentally.

-"I asked YOU - where are the ANTI-BUSH-WAR protesters To-Damned-Day now that we STILL HAVE TWO WARS GOING ON."


I thought I would respond to this false idea that the anti-war protestors have packed it in. I wrote about and talked about my speaking at a local anniversary protest of the bombing of Iraq protest this year on this very blog, but I guess no one was paying attention.

For the record there have been three nation wide protests since Obama took office. Two have protested the beginning of the Iraq war on its March anniversay. There have also been dozens of local protests all over the country since Obama took office.

Most have been consistent protests since the Iraq war began. Some have consistently protested since the beginning of the Afghanistan invasion and subsequent occupation.

So if indeed you are interested in the truth, there is still a very active anti-war movement in the U.S.

And please note that because you weren't aware of them, and they weren't always given lots of press by the big business media did not mean they did not happen.

And what actually began to cause the number of protest and protestors to diminish, was the realization that the US government had no intention on withdrawing from Iraq or Afghanistan no time soon. Many protestors were disillusioned because they mistakenly thought that their protests would end the war.

Check out the war resisters league website and they will have more complete numbers.
