I especially enjoyed his comment that government is supposed to PROMOTE the general welfare of our great country, not PROVIDE it as most libs believe.

White vote - Non-south vote = 49.7
White vote - South = 30.2

Total white vote = 79.9

Maybe you didn't take the time to do the research. I don't think I'm racist for pointing this out. Obama could not have won with only the minority vote in this country. Maybe you only looked at the percentage in Georgia. Now if you dispute this - I won't consider you a racist. You may find a different poll.

This post had NOTHING to do with the white vote! Do you hate us all so much that you have to invoke racism in EVERY post you make?

I'm sure that's a rhetorical question. With your superior insight, I'm sure you know the answer.

wasn't 70% of white people voting for Obama, and no reason to label me a racist for disputing that fact, but yet you did. In fact when I called you on it and asked you to cite your sources, you told me to look it up, you had already done the research once, why do it again.

Feel better? But that is not the only reason I point out your racist tendencies. You have some strong feelings against 'black' people because of your stated experiences. I hope you are able to recall some positive experiences. That really helps to 'heal' making judgments based on 'color'. I related to experiences that happened many, many years ago right here in Georgia. I was fortunate to have many 'integrated' experiences while growing up and in the military. I've experienced what MLK dreamed about. I hope you will also - someday.

. .and an astute politician. And one would not disagree with all that he says - however he is the product of government intervention in segregated schools, educational opportunities for black-Americans, the integrated military after Truman, and he took advantage of those opportunities, worked hard, and achieved. BUT - it took government intervention to give him that opportunity. Some day America will have an exemplary healthcare system - because of government intervention. There will be those who would deny access by stating - as has been done in the past - too much government. The history of America shows that sooner or later, Americans do the right thing by one another. He will get YOUR vote by his rhetoric - and will assuage your fear of being called 'racist' - and then he will do the 'right' thing. . .if elected. Think about it. Or he may go the way of Allen Keys and/or Michael Steele.

So no matter what the man says, does, or did, chalk it up to the Gov, he succeeded because of the Gov, nothing he did himself, he only achieved in the military because of Truman, it obviously had nothing to do with himself, just the Gov intervening. It seems that only the Gov can make a black man succeed, unless of course he , or she , spouts your party line. Be advised, that I have no fear of being called a racist, I don't think Hack would label me a racist, but of course he's just a black man taking advantage of the Gov's opportunities for black American's, as did his father. I did think about it, I thought about when you said my Grandfather might have been one of the people burning crosses in days gone by, When I called your hand about 70% of white people voting for Obama, and then you labeling me a racist because I disagreed and and you couldn't refute me on it. I thought about it when you said black people had to really worry about white men in pick-up trucks but had nothing to say about black men in cars with 22 inch rims and loud disgusting music. I've thought about it when you said white men in America should get over feeling picked on, even though most had nothing to do with segregation. For some reason white people should take the blame for years gone past, whether we had any thing to do with Jim Crow or not. White people in the south should have to answer for the sins of our fore fathers whether or not we were even born then, regardless of what has transpired since then, but for some reason, blacks bear no responsibility for what they have wrought in the years since. In my years as a hvac serviceman in the Atlanta area, especially the west end of Atlanta, the MLK, Simpson road, Lowery Blvd area, it wasn't the white people stealing all the copper out of the homes there, it was the blacks stealing, from the blacks I might add. When you admit to your small minorities wrong doing, then I can take seriously your accusations against the whites, and the demeaning of the accomplishments of the blacks who don't echo your accusations about us whites.

. .You selectively ignored my comment:

and he took advantage of those opportunities, worked hard, and achieved.

You and I both have racist tendencies because of our experiences. Fortunately I have been raised in an integrated environment and have experienced good and evil from persons of all colors. I have not stated that the entire white male race was the cause of my fears - but I have had some bad experiences with SOME who happen to drive pick up trucks. It wasn't the 'black' people who made me have to lie down in the back of my cousins house while the 'white ' boys let off a little steam shooting as they went down the street. You know we could go on and on about our experiences with those whose color are not the same as ours. I am so grateful for MLK who made a point to show me at an early age that there are good and bad persons in all races and cultures. I have 'worked' in poor white neighborhoods where robbery was prevalent, children were abused, etc. By the way - crime and abuse can be found in all cultures and economic areas - right? Now what is your point? Do you want me to say all 'blacks' are less than all 'whites'? Can't say that. Do you want me to say that all 'whites' are better than all 'blacks'? That hasn't been my experience. Sorry.

Nothing to calm down about, but because you had a bad experience with SOME who drive pickup trucks, you tar me with that brush? It wasn't the white people in downtown Atlanta who suggested in no uncertain terms, that my wife might like to commit certain sexual acts upon them. You're right about one thing, if I had referred to the blacks as 'boys' you would have been all over me, but I notice you have no problem referring to the whites as boy, as in "black people" and "white boys". Double standard? My "point" is you have a double standard. I have no tendencies towards race, I give everyone respect until they prove otherwise. My "point" is that you are a bigoted old so and so, who espouses one thing and does another, and while promoting MLK, obviously you fail to embrace his teachings.

Boys/white. They were between 15 and 16 years old - boys. Nor was it the 'black' boys in a pick up truck that suggested that I have certain sexual acts with them. Was either one of these degenerates correct? Was the act any different because of their color? I don't ever recall painting 'you' with a broad brush - but if you feel that I did, for that I'm sorry, since I only know you by your words. Was what happened to your wife any different than what happened to me? Who has the double standard here? THE ACTS ARE DEPLORABLE - regardless of the color of the perpetrators - right? When insecure people become agitated, they resort to calling others names. I know that I still have racist tendencies - and sir, so do you. It is the illness of this country that must be healed if we are to live up to the words of our Constitution. We're getting closer every decade..and it has been amazing the change that I have seen in my lifetime. The very fact that I am living comfortably in Fayette County, GA is a statement of progress. In 1981 my son, who was a student at Morehouse College, was told not to get caught in Fayette County after dark. He was fearful for us when we told him we were building here – and pleasantly surprised to observe how friendly the people were in Fayetteville. A lot had changed since 1981. (We moved here in 2004) 20+ years – a lot of ‘change’ has occurred. Change is not impossible – right?
