Word,

For the record, I know that most FAers oppose Obama because he's a big government liberal (actually, I consider him a moderate, but let's not quibble about that). I know that most FAers don't care about his race.

I know that African-Americans have more freedoms now that they had fifty years ago. It took centuries of struggle to achieve any semblance of equality. Much of that struggle took place from 1955 to 1968.

Just because a black man with a white mother (or is he a white man with a black father?) is president doesn't mean we're in a post-racial society. After all, all he needs is one black parent to be considered black. Tiger Woods is more Thai than anything else, but everyone considers him black. Why? Because blackness is the stain. It denotes otherness, inferiority, kinky hair, resemblance to monkeys, prominent posteriors, etc.

Critical onlookers are just waiting for Obama to shuffle. Imagine if a photographer caught Obama and his women-folk eating watermelon!

Blacks are disproportionately stopped by traffic cops (DWB). They are followed when they enter Korean grocery stores.

Enough. I have things to accomplish.

Whoa...I believe you have this all backward. Tiger Woods' "blackness" overshadowed his Thai heritage because it was celebrated as a positive. Same with President Obama. They are celebrated because they have "black" in them. People wanted that presidential glass ceiling shattered, hence "the first black president" rather than "first biracial president". A number of little kids didn't want to celebrate Tiger Woods as a great golfer and sports star. If they happened to be black, they wanted to hero-worship his accomplishments based upon racial identifying themselves with him, claiming a real or false sense of similar heritage.

Seriously?! It is liberals like you who read race into EVERYTHING! Let it go! You guys would jump all over the photographer when all it would be is an innocent photo. My God, can't a guy even just eat a watermelon without the hypersensitivity of the do-gooder liberal crying "racism"?!

In some cases it's racism. But do you ever bother to ponder that there may be other factors at work here?

What the hell? You don't think I have other things to do myself than entertain you? Why try and post an off-topic comment here on a blog that's been dormant? Why basically personal message me like this rather than man up your comment over at the FA thread in question for all to see? It aggravates you? Grow some thicker skin then or relax/ why bother to torment yourself in the first place by going there to read posts and comments by strangers on the internet, sure to raise your blood pressure up? Isn't this why you went to FA in the first place? To engage in debate with those with time on their hands to do so?

You didn't just make an offensive racial-stereotyping remark regarding Korean grocers, did you? *snicker*

Maybe I did stereotype Korean grocers.

Sorry to bother you.

Sorry for my rudeness and impatience.

I'm just spread thin on time.
