I’m Speechless

Spotted on the convention floor in Charlotte.

2012 DNC Convention hat

Using words like "Chicago", "golf", "professor" and "kitchen cabinet" is considered racism, but that pin is OK?

    You never go back to the same area perhaps. I mean, Baltimore, Detroit, Newark, (you name it) there is a lot of black voting there accompanied by a lot of everyone moving out (including some blacks).

    As racist as it may be deemed by those who don't want to acknowledge anything and accuse everything, it is the reality. A reality the result not of race but of political mindset, one which so happens to be very consistent within the black community. If all these people see in politicians is race, they simply have nothing substantial to say, nor offer, politically.

    Voting for a lousy politician primarily because of race or ethnicity is not just wrongheaded, it's retarded, regressive and primitive. It's completely disreputable. And people who do that expect respect? PLEASE.
