FreeRepublic's response to this missive...
Nov 8, 2012

Posted on 11/09/2012 6:03:20 AM PST by ICE-FLYER

The following is making rounds on Facebook and other social media outlets. While I have my own responses to much of its content, i would like to know the responses you would give.

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

REPOST: A white man asked his black friend Are you going to vote for BARACK OBAMA just because he's black? The black man responded by saying "why not?" In this country men are pulled over by police because they are BLACK, passed over promotion just because they are BLACK; considered to be criminals just because they are BLACK; Thousands of white voters are not voting for him because he's BLACK!... But you don't seem to have a problem with any of that! This country was built with the sweat and tears of BLACK slaves and now a BLACK man has a chance to lead the same country where we weren't even considered as people; where we weren't even allowed to be educated, drink from the same fountains, eat in the same restaurants, or use the same restrooms or even VOTE. So YES I am going to vote for him! But its not because he's BLACK, but because through his leadership several of America's most elusive enemies were brought to justice, our economy, health and environment has improved; and our good reputation around the world has been restored. He is HOPE. He is CHANGE. He is WISE. He is a man of INTEGRITY and INTELLIGENCE. He is a man of FAITH and PERSEVERANCE. A man of MATURITY and GOOD JUDGEMENT. He is a faithful HUSBAND and FATHER. And he allows me to understand when my grandchildren desire to be President when they grow up, its not a fairy tale but a short term goal. They now see, understand and know that they can achieve, withstand, and do ANYTHING that they can dream for themselves. ... So NO I am not voting for him because he's BLACK.....I'm VOTING for him because I'M BLACK.....

I will say that my friends would not cast me as racist for my responses. Their friends most likely would because that is just how it rolls sometimes, but I know that the strength of relationship is more powerful than words on a forum. That being said, I have never in my life been made to feel worse than recently when it comes to how whites are perceived wholesale and its not going away any time soon. The mere mention of an issue between a white and any other race many times starts with the accusation of racism then the dismissal of their point because of it...in other words it is power in the hands of those so inclined to use it and in politics, and society, that is so very dangerous.

Shows how much the affirmative action enablers have destroyed the ability of their charges to see reality.

Alcoholics Anonymous has a program to help enablers to quit...

Bullshit! Slaves built the pre-Civil War Southern agrarian industry. After they were free, AMERICANS built this country in the industrial revolution.

” So NO I am not voting for him because he’s BLACK.....I’m VOTING for him because I’M BLACK.....”

Simply not true. As evidence, I cite Mia Love and/or Allen West. The above should read, “ So NO I am not voting for him because he’s BLACK.....I’m VOTING for him because I’M BLACK, uninformed, and LIBERAL.....”

The blacks in this country with chips on their shoulders and real or perceived grievances (which is a great percentage of them) voted for Obama both times for one reason only....... he gives them a feeling of national and personal empowerment and recognition (hardly at all for his ideology, qualifications or any of the usual criteria).

I can justify voting against Obama because I am white.

The new black pampers have comitted three crimes against whites I can document:

The 2008 voter intimidation in Philly

The George Zimmerman bounty

The threats of violence at the RNC

Since the negro nazi party failed to prosecute these crimes, I have to vote for racial justice.

Any white that votes for Obama is as stupid as a Jew that votes for a real nazi.

My response is that now you have been paid trillions in reparations via things like the new deal and continue to be paid billions because of your skin color we are not only even you owe me a refund because I have had nothing to do with your gripes and complaints. Now I am the minority. I am the one being enslaved financially. I am a slave today while you have NEVER been one. Nobody ever gave me anything. I made it all my self and now I’m being robbed. But I won’t stand still for that. I’ve had it with the thievery. When once I overpaid taxes now I’m going to pay only what I legally have to. And what of some of my businesses that you tax so much? Some are going offshore and many people I know are doing the same thing.

So be happy you have dark skin if you like. Or sad. Unlike you I don’t care about skin color. I am not a racist. Well, I was not one but today I am in a small way. This happened over the last 4 years. You see I never put upon anyone that had dark skin but now some of those that happen to have dark skin put upon me. I’ll be silent about it. Sad about it. But not stupid about it. You want to live off my work. I’ll keep working but good luck figuring out how to dig deeper in to my pockets.

Utter bunk.

The free northern states were far more prosperous than the slave-owning southern states.

And the first transcontinental railroad, which did more for the country than cotton, was built by Irishmen and Chinamen.

Exactly right. They also voted for him out of revenge, just as he exhorted them to. The revenge statement was no mistake. It was a rallying cry.

Ditto. Got off Twitter as well. About 2AM election night I said: "I've got to get my life back." It started by dumping those two time-wasters. I refuse any longer to read the vile stupidity that's on those narcissistic echo-chambers.

All the twenty-somethings will be gobsmacked when four years from now they still don't have jobs and there's no one to pay for their "free" stuff. They can gloat and preen about gay marriage and abortion while they try to subsist on unemployment benefits that are running out. If other parents are as angry as I am, the twenty-somethings will find the source of their gravy train has dried up. A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. It's time for them to experience real life. Drive off the cliff. The "rich" will be in hiding and the politicians will be left trying to explain how the biggest bubble of all, government deficit spending, has popped.

Not true. Recall that on his census form he checked "Black, African Am., or Negro " rather than the more accurate "Some Other Race" including a space to enter a type such as "mixed" or "mulatto".

Exactly. Mia Love and Allen West are very good examples. No, this man voted for Obama and supports Democrats because he believes he is owed free stuff. This sense of entitlement is endemic in Black culture.

They continue to hold fast to their living crutch that says some of their ancestors were slaves (not Obamas) therefore others owe them their livelihoods into perpetuity.

Blacks never have the guts to consider that out-of-wedlock births are staggering. Blacks do not have the guts to admit that because most of them do not know their fathers and do not know the blessing of a family has led to a cultural feral mindset where brutal crimes are simply a way of life in the ghettos of their lives.

No, so much easier for Black and other aggrieved minorities to simply keep their hand out for the abundance of free stuff given to them (EBT Cards, Medicaid, Cell Phones, Section 8 Housing) all the while cursing those who are giving all that free stuff to them by the sweat of their brow.

It is so much easier this way to justify your undisciplined, unprincipled, gangster life.

No, you voted for Obama because he promised to steal even more from others and give it to you otherwise you would have voted for Mia Love and Allen West.

Built by slaves? Horsesh!t

The slaves that built the country are the ones putting in 50-70 hours a week and getting half of their money confiscated by this so called government of ours! Only to have that money redistributed to low lifes who can’t get up in the morning and take a piss by themselves!

The next revolution will be about slavery, but not the kind we had 150 years ago! Bank on it.

I’d just say that they must want white people to be racist, because if they keep accusing them of it, no matter what white people do, then white people have no motivation not to be racist. I’ve been called a racist so many times, it’s like calling me a doo-doo head, it carries absolutely no sting anymore.

...and yet, the policies of this Presidneet...and oh by the way, he is 50% white, about 30% Arabic, and about 20% Black African actuially...have produced a far wose conditions for Blacks in terms of unemployement, under-employment, poverty, food stamps, continued aboriont of their young, etc., etc.

In other words, if you were going to vote for hiom on policy, particularly as it effect you because “you are black,” you would get as far away from him as possible.

The fact that this individual votes for him any way, puts the lie to his words, because actions always speak louder than words.

Their claims of racism now fall on deaf ears, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE! The race card has been overplayed and the deck is full of JOKERS. Obama isn’t BLACK, he’s RED! He played the blacks, asians and latinos for the dupes that they are. The rich may get poorer, but so will the middle class and the poor. When they don’t get their goodies anymore they can go ahead and complain, but they’ll be greeted by the government they so love with the business end of a gun. Good Luck!

Most Americans, white, black or otherwise, do not even know what ‘ideology’ even means. They have no clue as to how ‘government of the people’ is supposed to work. They haven’t the slightest inkling of constitutional limits on government power.

To them, government is the sugar daddy of all sugar daddies. Get free stuff from the wealthy through the government. They cannot conceive of anything esoteric such as liberty and personal responsibility, those are foreign concepts.

We have reached the tipping point, and it is now behind us. No candidate, no amount of campaign contributions, no slick advertisements, slogans or bumper stickers will ever change that mentality.

No, what must happen is the system must collapse. It must be allowed to proceed to the point where people realize that they have killed the golden goose, slaughtered the sacred cow and eaten the seed corn. The ones that caused the destruction will be the first to be destroyed by their own brethren. They will turn on themselves like rabid dogs, fighting over the last scraps of the carcass.

Then, and only then, will we be free of this chancre called ‘socialism’.....................

I will attempt to recast this argument in other terms.. Most liberals see our country as too much something.. Too strong, and that we use that strength to influence others in our image, one that they don’t agree with.. We are too unfair to the lower classes, and that divide is holding back the permanent underclass..

We are a Nation of immigrants, but we seem to forget that we all came from somewhere else in our past, yet we have treated this new flow of immigration in the same way our forefather were unfairly treated, we’ve learned nothing.. Our immigration laws are unfair because they favor the wealthy, and too complex that lawyers are the only beneficiaries..

We are too religious, too puritanical in our beliefs.. We are too close-minded that we can’t see that not everyone is of the same mold that we seem to dictate..

Obama is of those fibers, and he has stitched together those elements into a common cloth that are so frustrated that they overlook their natural affinity to each other..

Since the Black underclass has been pacified, and codified in their beliefs, that they are the perfect model for a leadership role representative for these disparate coalitions, and they have this mandate that winning this battle is the beachhead, and has made anything to achieve their goal worthy of consideration, laws be damned..

That is where we are, and that is where we are going.. These people cheated and lied to get this man, Black as they could get, to be their leader.. He has a mandate to mold this country in their fragmented image, scares and scabs and all..

I hate most of what they believe in, and for that reason I don’t want this President, Black or otherwise, or any Liberal Pied Piper near the reigns of power..

REPOST: A white man asked his black friend Are you going to vote for BARACK OBAMA just because he's black? The black man responded by saying "why not?" In this country men are pulled over by police because they are BLACK,

False at the specific data level. False generalization.

passed over promotion just because they are BLACK;

False generalization. The reverse might be true, in the data margins.

considered to be criminals just because they are BLACK;

False. False generalization.

Thousands of white voters are not voting for him because he's BLACK!...

Perhaps true. But this number is much smaller than those who voted for him because of, or in larger part because of, his race.

But you don't seem to have a problem with any of that!

I have great problems with your false claims of fact and faulty analysis.

This country was built with the sweat and tears of BLACK slaves

True up to a point in size and time. It is false to say slaves built even .1 percent of the wealth and economy we see today. Blacks built perhaps ten percent of what we have today. American chattel slavery was evil, disgraceful, and every other bad thing you'd like me to say about it. But we've already debated this and we agree.... Furthermore, Jim Crow was also evil, disgraceful, and every other bad thing you'd like me to say about it. But this ended legally in the mid-1960's and in the vast majority of hearts and souls sometime during the 1970's. You can put your race card away. It is you who has become the racist.

and now a BLACK man has a chance to lead the same country where we weren't even considered as people;

"As a people? As humans equivalent in innate dignity and worth as whites?" False today. Not generally true today. Not generally true for signicant numbers of whites since the 1940s and perhaps earlier.

where we weren't even allowed to be educated,

Overcome by events. False today and false in your lifetime.

drink from the same fountains,

Overcome by events. False today and false in your lifetime.

eat in the same restaurants,

Overcome by events. False today and false in your lifetime.

or use the same restrooms

Overcome by events. False today and false in your lifetime.

or even VOTE.

Overcome by events. False today and false in your lifetime.

So YES I am going to vote for him! But its not because he's BLACK, but because through his leadership several of America's most elusive enemies were brought to justice,

To some extent yes. But to no greater extent than was already on course to happen. In the mean time, he has been negligent as new Islamic ebemies have formed and strengthened.

our economy, health and environment has improved;

Absolutely False. False or marginal. False or marginal.

and our good reputation around the world has been restored.

Our reputation has improved in the eyes of those around the world detest the U.S. and U.S. power and principles of liberty and justice. Those who look to us as a model of liberty and as a vehicle for liberation are more afraid.

He is HOPE.

Glittering generality and Kool-Aid.

He is CHANGE.

You are seeing him as Messianic. You are deluded.

He is WISE.

False. He is a Progressive, a Marxist, and a slick wannabe tyrant.

He is a man of INTEGRITY

Perhaps at a personal level. At the political level he is a shrewd politician who uses all the instruments of non-violent power, both ethical and deceitful.

and INTELLIGENCE.

Not more so than the typical man of achievement.

He is a man of FAITH

He may have made some profession of faith to the true Christ. He claims to have. He is nevertheless a Progressive ideologist first and foremost. This is antithetical to Christianity. He is also sympathetic to Islam, which is in doctrine and in practice hostile to U.S. Constitutional liberty and to Christian faith.

and PERSEVERANCE.

Definitely true.

A man of MATURITY

At a personal level, probably.

and GOOD JUDGEMENT.

On matters of economics and state, false.

He is a faithful HUSBAND and FATHER.

True

And he allows me to understand when my grandchildren desire to be President when they grow up, its not a fairy tale but a short term goal.

This was achieved sometime in the 1970's.

They now see, understand and know that they can achieve, withstand, and do ANYTHING that they can dream for themselves.

... So NO I am not voting for him because he's BLACK.....I'm VOTING for him because I'M BLACK.....

Oh pulease. Get over it. Your race card is old, worn out, and hasn't been accepted here since about 1975. Your race-baiting makes you a racist. Go away. Get away from me Satan.

I disconnected my Facebook account yesterday.

I searched for "Obama" and unfriended anyone who made a pro-Obama comment. I don't have room in my life for those who are conspiring to take my freedom.

Thousands of white voters are not voting for him because he's BLACK!

Thousands, if not millions of white people did vote for him, again, specifically because he is black.

They've been cowed by decades of political correctness and accusations of inherent racism and manufactured guilt. Any questioning of Obama's presidential qualifications or performance is immediately met with charges of "RACISM!!!".

Voting for Obama is their penance.

Very much like the story of the "Emperor's New Clothes", they all agree with the crowd what a great president he is, what a good job he's doing, what a shame it is that he was saddled with so many problems.

None of them have the courage of an innocent observer to point out: "Hey, he doesn't have any clothes". Or in this case: "Hey, he's a pretty crappy president and this country is in a shambles".

All through the election, I kept hearing: "No president has ever won re-election with an unemployment rate above 7.2%", or "No president has every won re-election because of X, or Y, or Z".

I always immediately thought: "No president has ever been the beneficiary of this much manufactured national guilt and political correctness".

So, yes, he was elected because of racism, but you can't pin it all on black voters.

"I will say that my friends would not cast me as racist for my responses. Their friends most likely would because that is just how it rolls sometimes, but I know that the strength of relationship is more powerful than words on a forum."

Who gives a damn about being called a racist? I couldn't care less.

It proves that there are indeed two Americas.

Yes I post this (below) often. Because I really believe it. It's from Abraham Lincoln in 1854 I believe -- and it is not intended to suggest civil war. My preference has always been a modern American "Man on Horseback" to restore our Constitution and rid our Republic of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue. I honestly began to believe this in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Though I am not thinking of the civil rights movement of the 1960s when I speak of campus Marxist-Alinsky radical, spoiled brats the extremists in the civil rights movement could be just as violent and anti-American.

I remember.

The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

They hijacked the now defunct Democratic Party in the 1970s. The fault is ours. Abe will explain from "the other side."

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. "A house divided against itself cannot stand." I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

Obama is a biological-ideological issue of the 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats.
