Wow stop the presses! Bill cosby has spoken up about a racial issue and sided with those of us who saw the Joe Wilson debacle like it was, a bigoted racilly charged moment in it's purest form, if not then we must admit to a few BIG coincidences, first black president, first time that i can remember a president being called a liar to his face in front of the entire assembly of the house and senate by a member of congress, but the powers that be still believe that you can spit on my hand and say it's raining or more to the point that "there was nothing racial about that" please.... he would not have done that to ANY past president, so now that Bill Cosby a once conservative talking head darling do to his "speaking out" on the plight of black youth has broken ranks by declaring this a racial incident how quick before the right wing label him? Some guest on o'reilly have all ready expressed their disappointment in his remarks, and it's funny how a racist like bill o'reilly dismisses every incident of racism as "silly" they have effectively created an atmosphere where racism can be practiced without them ever having to be called on it, like the "9-12" project by saying "it's only the fringe" when people hold signs about the POTUS questioning whether or not he was born here or saying that he's in with the terrorist or that he's a muslim as if there's something wrong with being a muslim, but of course thats just the "fringe" of the right wing and not the whole party, hmm I wonder why the the same "that doesnt represent the whole group" doesnt apply to acorn, oh well thats another post.

Obviously Joe Wilson didn't yell "you lie" solely because Obama isn't white. It was probably primarilly based on . . . well the lying. But, maybe, it was easier for him to yell at a black man.


Perhaps, if Obama was white, and telling the same half truths and lies, Wilson would have had the restraint to hold his tongue. I'll go as far and say that race, might, be enhancing a dislike of a particular policy.


What I'm never going to accept is the thought that people want --- out of control federal spending; a federal take over of banks, automobiles and healthcare; as well as the executive branch usurping the power of congress through czars --- if only it was a white guy doing it.


It might, (and its still a big might), help people to more actively oppose bad ideas, but race does not make them bad ideas.
