Powell has no idea what he's talking about. Look at the crap the Dems have put up against the GOP in the last 13 years aside from Obama...


Al Gore
John Kerry
Nancy Pelosi
John Edwards
Howard Dean


All of these have been awful "potential" Presidents with the exception of Pelosi even though she was third in command. The GOP dislike for Obama has to do with the crap that represents that party, not about race.

Pretty much. Humans are despicable pieces of shit, color is really irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. We all share a collective human nature made up of lust for and abuse of power is the underlying bedrock on which racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc rest.

I grew up in South Africa during the last few years of the Apartheid regime, when Whites had absolute power. That system's atrocities are well documented. But now that the Whites have been more or less marginalized in government (although not at all from positions of power, wealth, etc) you see some of the same evils being practiced upon them. Some members of the ANC (the Black ruling party in the country since the end of Apartheid) have openly called for the violent redistribution of farmland which involves the butchering of White land owners:

The President Singing 'Kill the Boer'

Some would say its comeuppance for the Apartheid era. Just goes to show your points about human nature and how power is used/abused is correct.

Speaking of racism, I just caught this comment on a thread about Miss America being crowned.

Quote:
her boyfriend is a negro! and she gets crowned miss america? a representative of how a white american girl should act & conduct herself? she shouldn't have even been allowed to compete, much less win! our politically-correct, pathetically-liberal country is sinking deeper & deeper into a mire of moral decay!

Actually I saw that comment at the Washington Post.

There's another unhinged comment about NY that's worth reading too.

The Nets are winning and a transplant to Brooklyn wins Miss America. Goodd times. Also just found she did her talent portion to James Brown's Get Up Offa That Thing, so that's cool too.

Yea, nationalism can potentially be detrimental but black unity and trying to protect an identity are not necessarily negative things. The way you go about expressing your nationalism is the difference in whether it is a positive or not.
