Obama, Is Race A Factor?

Race is arguably the biggest issue in this election, and it’s one that nobody’s talking about.

The differences between Barack Obama and John McCain couldn’t be more well-defined. Obama wants to change Washington. McCain is a part of Washington and a part of the Bush legacy. Yet the polls remain close. Doesn’t make sense…unless it’s race.

Obama Picked Joe Biden a well respected democrat as running mate, McCain picked a bimbo that those not knows what Nato stands for and tet the race is still close.

What will you do if McCain is elected? is race a factor

Tayo D is living in a fantasy world. . . . the Bradley effect is alive and well. . . . it even affected Obama in the North Carolina primaries. . . . the polls had him ahead by 8 points and he still lost by 2 points. . . . if I remember correctly, Colin Powell was discouraged from running for the 1996 elections by the GOP because they told him the Bradley effect would affect his chances. . . . the fact is, if not for race, Obama would have a 20 point lead. . . . O'Reilly even alluded to it by saying "I don't think the polls are an accurate reflection because on polling day, many voters would be scared to vote for the 'new' guy". . . . we all know what that means.

even in nigeria where we all are of the same race, language and surname is a huge factor how much more in a country where people are of a different skin color, and where one race feels superior and narcissistic. haba.

i'm not trying to say americans are terrible people b/c nigerians are no better(hard fact) but they are not the saints that dont care about skin color like some peeps here may try to pretend.

make no mistake, america is a white country. racism is a great factor and a black president in 2008 may be a mirage. until the kids who are below 20yrs today grow to be the ruling generation, racism will continue to be a factor in the US politics . . i.e if those kids dont get corrupted by their fathers.

i'm posting this for the benefit of ridiculously blind people like Tayo-D and Kobojunkie, men/women who live in a bubble of self-deciet as regards the US presidential race.

Poll: Racial views steer some white Dems away from Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) — Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost Barack Obama the White House if the election is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles.

The poll, conducted with Stanford University, suggests that the percentage of voters who may turn away from Obama because of his race could easily be larger than the final difference between the candidates in 2004 — about two and one-half percentage points.

We have consistently said that the reason the race is as close today has more to do with skin color than issues. Were Obama white we'd be discussing McCain's margin of defeat.

Race is still a factor, how can someone who clearly states he does not understand the economy and keep talking about the fundamentals of the economy.

His top advisers are all total failure and yet, the race is close.

If Obama was white I strongly thing this race would have been over right after the convention

Living in alaska is like living in siberia,cold blooded and out of this world creatures,apart from the native alaskans whose ways of like have been toppled over by the invading and rampaging oyinbos.

Of course race will always remain a prominent destabilizing issue in the west.But for skin color,mccain is no march to obama in any way,from his looks,his ideas,to the way he talks,one can clearly see that he is a typical timid,clueless,southern american redneck,just like majority of the population,even the so-called democrats,they can't live to see a black man rule them,not in this generation.

Mccain is more like a zombie,typical american soldier,go and kill,go and die,without any atom of self reasoning,judgement or consideration,in the name of country,the british will say in the name of the queen.Collective and programmed thinkers,same applies to rednecks

It is very important to make something clear before we start yapping one another; we must clearly understand that there is a difference between ignorance and stupidity.

Ignorance simply means lack of knowledge, while stupidity means lack of intelligence.

And I'm sorry to inform you guys that the republicans completely understand these definitions, they're mainly focused on distracting and brainwashing these groups of people.

FYI:Republicans are currently bragging that they've got a lock on the silly, racist white voters and the lost black voters.

My question is: when is the buttheads are finally going to wake up?

Look!

MAMAJAMA is not referring to the DNC; he's talking about the old man and the bimbo.

Instead of focusing more on issues Americans are currently facing, the republicans have turned this election into a race and gender war.

It is obvious to all that they have no chance and no material whatsoever; the only thing left for them is to start throwing low blows.

The old man graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at Annapolis, while the bimbo travelled all over United States colleges seeking for easy way out, she also hardly completed her bachelor degree.

How can anyone in his or her right mind could ever come here to support an old fraud who continues to run the sleaziest campaign. This man lies about everything and doesn't even hesitate to repeat same lies, even after they've been exposed as lies. This is nothing but a disgraceful and dishonorable campaign in American history.

And it is amusing to me how America is gradually changing to a joke and a 3rd world country in progress.

Republicans state of mind

It isn't about the issues anymore, it's all about tricking the fools once again; if Bush could do it twice, the old man and the bimbo could also make it happen. And this is one of the main reasons why McCain's camp continues to intentionally target the ignorant American voters.

Again, the old man hates your gut; in his eyes, you're nothing but another house Negro with bunch of credit cards.

Hi,

It's obvious, isn't it?  Race is, of course, the big issue here.

Americans do not wish to see a black President.  They would go to any length to vote for the Republicans, simply to stop Obama from winning.  Let them go ahead and have a repeat of the Bush years.  As ever, Americans will never learn.

Then again, so many of our African-American brothers and sisters don't quite like him because, according to them, he is not a 'real' African-American being that he is of mixed race, with a white mother and a Kenyan father, hence, not a true brother like Jesse Jackson.  Such rhetorics as 'America is not yet for a black president' just confound me.

As I've always maintained, we would have to wait and see.

yes, many don't want to talk about it. if Obama does not win, RACE is the cause not matter what the analysts say. i also think if Michele was a white woman, his chances will be high.

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight,

* If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."

* Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Bristol, Piper, Trig and Track you're a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the Illinois State Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.

* If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

This is a good script a friend sent me.

Charles Barkley said Americans sometimes deserve what they get, and that they do not deserve a good leader.

That will just validate Barkley's point if this election is stolen
