Obama has recently set up a super PAC he lovingly calls "African Americans for Obama" so I say we start a super PAC called "white Americans for Romney." Discuss.

    I'm not touching that one with a 10-Foot pole 'cause it's too easy to point out the wrongness of it; However, even if I were to donate to a SuperPAC that goes to a GOP candidate, I wouldn't give my money to Romney, Santorum or Gingrich.

    well i suppose if it was blacks enslaving whites and subjecting them to 100 years of jim crow and extrajudicial violence then your idea would make plenty of sense.

    but with your 50 million dollah fortune i am sure you can make this thing happen, either way.

    Obama can't set up a Super PAC, Super PACs are set up and run independently of candidates. It's an awful system that poisons the political well.

    I didn't mean he personally set it up, he is however making speeches about it. I was pointing out the irony that a president who bills himself as the "post racial" president is out there saying in different words "if your black you should vote for me because I am black."

    seriously, stfu about shackles and oppression and 200 years. Other groups have recovered a lot more quickly from slavery than the black community. It's the twenty-first century now. The only shackles that need to be thrown off are those that imply blacks are special and can make excuses for their culture of failure, self-destruction, and irresponsibility.

    nothing more attractive than a bunch of middle class white guys (except for rockefeller heister here) feeling sorry for themselves.

  • TonyPerkis's picture

    pretty sure no one is feeling sorry for themselves...it seems people are more offended that obama is playing the race card

    ok tony point taken.

    let me ask all the white dudes: for all the supposed goodies that our negro brethren get through obama's magical racial set asides or whatever, would you trade places with a black man? any black man?

    if i had to choose between being me and being don cheadle...i'd be me.

    i've seen jewish american, asian american,italian american, indian american,irish american and hispanic american organisations.

    why do some people insist that african americans are about the 'race card'? what is your problem, heister? for a guy with 50million(no proof whatsoever) u have a lot resentment in u. and what is white people?

    and when did obama say he was 'post-racial'. the straw man argument is getting old.

  • TheKing's picture

    How fucking sensitive must people be to be crying over Obama having an African Americans for Obama section of his website. Give me a fucking break.

    "uhh uhh he's playing the race card."

    We've got bigger things to worry about than your manufactured white oppression issues.

  • heister's picture

    This has less to do with the idea of black people wanting people of their own race to support them, has more to do with the fact that Obama billed himself as post racial. It's hypocritical to then say all black people should vote for me because I'm black. It's just as bad as those fucks who have "white guilt"

    Obama didn't bill himself as post-racial, don't assume he did just because it was on the cover of Time magazine.

    Also, having an "African Americans for Obama" page hardly equates to playing the race card. If you're going to complain about that, you're being way too sensitive and are projecting your own ideas onto him so you have another thing to complain about.

    This is hardly as offensive as Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich giving speech after speech exclaiming how "secularists are ruining America." They constantly disparage those who aren't religious as being inferior and lacking moral character. That's way more offensive than Obama having a page about black people supporting him.

    Give me a break.

  • bigapple06's picture

    for an online community which often claims that 'networking' is the biggest factor for getting in this industry there are a lot of resentments for people who don't "deserve" to be in.

    of course you don't give a shit about facts. obama cannot start a SuperPAC. Every candidate responds to groups that endorse them. Don't conflate the two. and next time stick to facts...

    The African Americans for Obama drive and the super PAC that goes by the same name are two separate deals, they both have the same goals get all black people to vote for Obama because he is black.

    yup, because mormons vote for romney because he's mormon, irish americans voted for JFK bcos he was irish american, catholics vote for santorum because he's catholic.

    black people get to breathe bcos they are black. isn't that your whole argument? he's there bcos he's black. JFK won bcos he was catholic, palin won because she's a 'real american' haha. i get it. it's all bcos he's black. now let's move on to him releasing his transcript and birth certs.

    I love how everyone lumps all white people into the same basket. Irish, Italian, Eastern European, etc are all white and have all had different experiences in this country. To say we are all the same because we all look a like is one of the most bigoted things I have heard recently.

    And White People for Romney is exactly the same as African Americans for Obama. Getting people to vote for you simply because of the color of your skin has no place in 2012 America.

    Oh well, racism is only racism when certain people do it. Gotta love hypocrisy.

  • TheKing's picture

    Who is offended by this? Seriously. If Santorum had a "Catholics for Santorum" page, I would not care.

    Santorum consistently insults people who aren't religious and claims that our lack of godliness is causing our downfall. That offends me as a free-thinking person a lot more than some fucking throwaway page on the Obama campaign website.

    i can assure u that jewish americans for obama are not voting bcos of his color. my point being that those who claim obama is playing the race card are asking him not to ask for the african american vote the way they would expect him to appeal to, say, the jewish vote. it seems it's okay to talk about jewish vote, catholic vote, hispanic vote, firemans vote(good one lol) but hey, african american vote, that's because he's black! got it?

    the race card means nothing in this post. it is a projection by the author in this troll post.

  • TNA's picture

    Obama is 100% smart for playing this up. Black approval ratings for Obama are higher than would be assumed for another Democrat. It is obvious there is some racial element to this. If I was Obama I would leverage that to the hilt.

    My point is that we live in a hypocritical society where it is socially exceptable to court votes because of your race if you are non white, whereas 'Whites for XYZ" would be destroyed viciously in the press if it ever happened.

    The retort is that whites have had it easy, as if all whites are the same. That thinking labels someone a racist if you said in about Asians, but to say that all whites are the same is bigoted and naive.

    That is all my point. I am agnostic about this tactic and would utilize it if I was Obama.

    Slavery would have ended with the cotton gin. Liberia was set up as a place of return for slaves post civil war. Had Lincoln not been assassinated there would have been no superpac either.

    Either way, the British and Spanish are to blame for things.
