A local station runs a disturbing story about a Ohio resident named Mike Lunsford who has hung an effigy of Barack Obama in his front yard. Lunsford freely admits that he is against Obama because of his race.
you know how you might pass by a vacant lot every now and then and think to yourself how useful that little piece of ground could be if only people cared - that's what ohio is . ohio is the kind of place where you find yourself thinking " man , you could re-settle gypsies here , or take in some refugees from african genocides , or provide some homesteading plots for dis-enfranchised hippy war objectors , or wall it off and let loose every unwanted dog , cat or ferret which would otherwise wind up getting gassed "
For anyone to run for president they have to be an American citizen. This means they had to born on American soil.
They can be born out of country, as long as they were born on American soil, which would be a military base that is considered American soil, as some military bases are not considered American soil.
The Governator cannot run for president because he was born in Austria, and not on American soil.
The term used to denote one who was born on American soil is, "naturalized."
It does not matter your ethnicity.
I don't know, I think it was a pretty weak display.
I mean, it's obvious the dude's pretty socially retarded for saying "it's not political, I'M RACIST!"
But It seems like he's also mentally retarded. If you're going to lynch somebody in effigy, don't beat around the bush with veiled references, JUST DO IT. I mean, you're already admitting you are a racist!
(and then we can throw your ass in jail for death threats and hate speech.. oooohhhh, maybe he's smarter than I thought...)
The most troubling aspect of racism is the lack of knowledge most racists display regarding their own origin. Go back far enough and we all descend from a single tribe on the African continent. Check out the video above - Journey of Man.
Deep down they are frightened individuals who fear those not of their kin. Rather than vilifying racists we need to discover a way to enlighten them in a non-threatening manner.
So how do we deal with racism? Is there a way to enlighten those still stuck in the racist mindset?
Whoo wee, them good ole' boys are freakin' out! That's right a black man is going to be president and he's going to undo all of the mess, that a white man got us into! It should never be about race, that's your problem, it should be about the issues. Time to grow up America and lead by example!!!
One question I would like answered is, why being suspected of being Muslim so terrible, but having openly White supremacist views suddenly so tolerable and DEFENDED in America today? People need to check one another on this.
Just an observation, everyone gasps in horror at this guy but are any of you condemning blacks that are voting FOR obama because if his skin color? Hell, Howard Stern is no conservative and he even has clips of interviews with blacks saying they support what the obamessiah stands for even though they replaced all of his stances with McCains stances. Hell, they even asked people what they thought of obamas VP choice, Sarah Palin and they said they thought she was great and would make an excellent VP. Racism will continue to exist as long as idiots like the far left support it when it favors THEIR candidate and agenda. I also don't see any condemnation of the McCain KKK haloween display that has been mentioned, hypocritical f-ing trash!
Sorry folks, you can't have your cake and eat it too...
lol, shocker! Typical lefties avoiding the issue by attacking the messenger. More proof just how blind and ignorant you are, as long as racism fits YOUR agenda it's ok but you condemn it if it goes against your candidate. This is exactly why racism still exists today, let's face it, race has been reduced to nothing more than a political tool these days and the left wings fingerprints are all over the handle.
There are cowards.....all of them...why? because they don't DARE to to go say thier rascist comments towards the people who supports Mr. Barack obama, yes they will just stay on their front porch, and preach such hate..
It shows the World how People in America can be eventhough someone wants to fix the real Issues about this Nation and make this a better place to life .
I am Sure that ,that person isnt a 100 perzent fullblooded American If he knew Americas History than he would know that this Country was built of Foreigners .
After the American Indians were Killed and kept in minority .
We are all not 100perzent real Americans our Ancestoirs werent Born here we all have a Background that shows If you do follow History werent from this Country .
But all we can do ,is to protect it from Ignorant people that have no Idea that the World is Round and not just small minded as this Fellow shows .
Wake up man we are all Human Beings and anyone is better than you ,you with your unexceptable View .
Change is what we need and not someone like you that shows and tells a lot about your Personality .
Racism is not excetable we all breath the same air and we are all Gods Children and we have no rights to judge anyone for his Color .
You didnt choose to be white ,what if you were born Black what If than ?
If you would hang a White Fellow there than I wanna see how long you can be at peace at you Home .
This is our Nation and get used to it and open your eyes you didnt make this Country a better place .
People like you are and will be Unhappy and disrespected and it shoud be that way .
No respect to you as you show no respect .
seriously on both parts they look as though they haven't been around the past few years. Grow up and move on to worrying about what you can do in a positive way to promote who you feel is right for presidency. putting racist figures or symbols in your yard does not promote your candidate in a very effective manner. It makes it look like you have no other reason for voting but on your racial stand point not for the viewpoint on whats really the problem. Really you think it helps your cause???
Well, now we know why Pres. Bush was sooooo popular for so long.
Pres. Bush promised to "get them thar sand n*****s in the Middle East and make bleed!" and Sen. John Kerry questioned the value of both our military strategy in Iraq and the need for torture. Refusing to kill non-whites? That cost Sen. Kerry 40 percent of the vote right there.
30-40 % of America is pretty fucking racist so hell ya they voted for (and worshiped) the White Supremacist who made it a central plank of his campaign to kill them evil Arab "sand n*****s" or at least lock'em up and torture them everyday.
It's just a sad fact of America.
Remember: the Civil Rights Act was only passed a few decades ago!
Only a few decades ago it was perfectly acceptable to huge sections of the population to lynch blacks!
Many of those people who were lynching blacks a few decades a go are still alive today and hate Obama with a passion.
They don't care about Obama's tax plan, they don't care about his energy policy....they only care that he is not white.
It is truly sad to see that racism is still around in America. But it doesn't look like he is just against black people, because there is a Jewish star on the ghost's head as well, So I can make the strong assumption that he is a classic case of an American racists.
The one in display in new york that has John McCain dressed as a KKKlansmen is a pretty funny satire. That is what McCain gets for preaching hate.The Obama ghost was lame,racist,and worst of all NOTCLEVER. 1-0
Obscene. Remind me again why we are paying so much attention as a nation to these Ohio voters? Even the woman with a "mixed" baby didn't seem that upset. There is some very deep seeded hatred in that state.
Ignorant fools sure do exist almost everywhere, we have one in our maintenance department at work will
say hell no he would'nt vote for a n----r. I get were he comes from 60 years old from kentucky, I just say to him every other time we speak, how ya doing you old cracker. They are a dying breed.
Depends on how one defines things, and how long one wants to go back in defining borders. I'm not being flip! For example, this is a lethally crucial issue in Israel/Palestine right now, isn't it.
So those we call American Indians, Native Americans, First Nations People immigrated across the land bridge to wipe out several species of animals to claim the land as their own. Then Europeans immigrated across the ocean to claim the land as their own, wiping out a lot of American Indians as well as a lot of animals. And the process of immigration continues to this day.
One might say that the only full-blooded Americans were the mastadons. Or, moving the demarcation forward, that the only full-blooded Americans were the American Indians. Or, moving the demarcation yet further ahead, that only American Indians plus Europeans and those brought here as slaves from Africa x number of years ago are full-blooded Americans.
I think we should forget such stuff and focus on the reality that we're all here now, regardless of how recently we've immigrated. The important thing is to find ways to work together fairly, equitably, with respect for all, for the common good in creating a national community. And, yes, that might involve redressing past injustices.
this is just sick and disgusting. people like this are un-American. he doesn't care about this country or what is best for us, he is just a pathetic racist who probably couldn't even name a major issue of this election.
Yeah, the irony of that struck me immediately. On the one hand Obama is accused of being an Arab (!) and a Muslim, and on the other he's part of the secret international conspiracy of Jews to wrest the world from the grasp of "white" (as in Klan robe?) Crustion 'Murcans.
