I dont claim to know what it feels like to be African American to its fullest extent. I support Barack Obama 100%! Being white, middle class, educated and a veteran, its my honor to support him. I also coach youth football and have half black, half white team I love all those kids the same. When I tell some white parents who I support, I can tell that they view me different now; I dont really care! It just makes me wonder how black people could survive all these years feeling like I do now, but they are very strong. Seems like most are voting against Obama and not so much FOR Mccain. Either way, we are all in this together and try to teach these kids teamwork no matter what color. So far, they see what I see, but hopefully they will grow with the change Im hoping for.

Oh please now ... there is a political forum for that form of dementia. Leave the "Chiefs football fan" form of dementia to this forum.

Let's see if I can speed up the transfer of this thread to the correct forum.


Maybe the 'white' parents view you different now is because you're a dumbass for voting democrat. Not because you support a candidate that is black.



There. How'd I do ?

I'm hoping to do the same with the Bhutanese-American community, but I can't find them yet.

Glad you're enjoying the coaching, though. The key to moving to the post-racial era, in my opinion, is interaction to the point where each group doesn't view the other group as "them", but rather as individual people.

Step aside newbie!

Barak Hussein Obama is a fool that will turn this country into a socialistic commie state.

I told you all to vote Ron Paul!!! I told you!!!!

So, what's every ones view on vouchers and who won the final McCain Obama debate?

While i am nor black or white, i am a minority and i know how it is when the upper class folks look at you as you walk by them or their cars. haha Doesnt really bother me though. I just look at it as, it is what it is.

I just learn not to stereotype people and to treat everyone equal until they give me a reason not to.

Wow.

This is some of the funniest shit I've read in a long time. From Bush Apologists to Race Apologists. If you wanna relieve some guilt about race relations, do the job you seem to enjoy. If you wanna fuck the minority population of this country (who will be hit hardest as the inevitable downturn comes), vote Obama.

Although admittedly, McCain is as much a douche and probably doesn't know the difference between Keynes and Mises either. Sadly, we're pretty much screwed either way, but with McCain it won't be as great.

Easy with the hyperbole, man. "Makes me wonder how black people could survive all these years feeling like I do now?"

Don't pretend like your vote for Obama makes you part of generations of repressed Americans. They were relegated to second class humans; you decided to show up and privately vote for a black man.

It could be argued that they were relegated to subhuman.

Obviously we owe somebody a presidency just as a make-up call.

What a noble man you might be.
