Drudge Plays The Harold Ford Card: Obama Kissing A White Woman...
Edited on Mon Oct-13-08 01:02 PM by malik flavors


I know many of you will say "what's wrong with it?" but being realistic, this is the kind of stuff that fires up the bigots and racists and I think it might be best to avoid things like this. Atleast during the close of this election.

No, bigots and racists don't dictate our actions, but I don't think it will be such a big deal if Obama doesn't kiss women (especially white women) on the cheek for the next 22 days.

Honestly, let Barack do what he does and how he does it.

It's a winning stratagem and I don't think the racists getting whipped into a frenzy about it will change anything--they're all voting McCain anyway.

24. Exactly!
Put this down with all the other bigoted, hateful smears and fear mongering. It's a campaign ploy that only appeals to people that won't vote for Obama anyway. It won't add any new votes to McCain's tally on election day.

Besides, wasn't his mother White? His grandparents are White too. I am sure he's kissed them all quite a bit.

41. because like others I think it's important to be careful about images
so I just asked for circumstances around it.

You know, you're all on your high horse but in corporations, managers such as myself are discouraged from hugging someone at work, let alone peck on the cheek and we don't have cameras on us throughout the day as Obama does.

I agree it is a non issue in MY mind, but I'm thinking even with a comfortable lead one has to be careful about perception.

30. Many of our military families are bi-racial, what many RWers would call "mongrels."
The GOP base is full of people opposed to the mixing of the races; "mongrels" was the term used by supporters of anti-miscegenation laws.

Way to support the troops!

Anti-miscegenation laws were edicts that made it unlawful for African Americans and white people to marry or engage each other in intimate relationships. The measures first appeared in the United States in colonial times and had two functions. First, the laws helped maintain the racial caste system necessary for the expansion of slavery and the idea of white supremacy. If white masters took slave women as lovers and fathered children by them, anti-miscegenation laws ensured that the children remained slaves because the illicit nature of the relationships left biracial children with none of their fathers free status. Second, anti-miscegenation statutes gave white men greater power to control the sexual choices of white women. In the colonial period, white patriarchs used the laws to discourage white women from choosing African Americans as husbands and paramours.

38. Is that really a pic of Obama? Maybe I haven't seen one from that
side, but to me it doesn't look like him. What's the diff if he's kissing a white woman, he kissed Biden's wife before and they went off the deep end about that.

There's an old Groucho Marx joke that goes something like "I tried to join a country club, but there was a rule that Jews couldn't use the pool, so I asked them if my daughter could go in halfway, since she was only half Jewish." Well, Obama's half white.

On a side note - I sent my blond-haired, blue-eyed son off to daycare today with his "Ninja's for Obama" shirt on. :) He's said he's a Ninja and Obama's gonna kick butt and win!!!

... I think I've seen him kiss on the cheek every female "average American voter with a story" that introduced him at rallies for months. He kissed Jill Biden on the mouth for crying out loud.

It's a flippin' kiss on the cheek! He's a nice guy.

There is an adulteror running for president ..... but it ain't him.

There's only ONE woman Barack Obama does this too.......



.... end of controversy.

46. you are right, unfortunately
It shouldn't matter who he's shown with, but this will energize the racists, it's not just about words, the imagery of a black man kissing a white women stirs up a lot of negativity amongst the bigots, and not just overall racists, but people who say they are ok with black people but don't approve of interracial couples. I'm not saying it's right, but it is true that this will get all the racists' panties in a bunch.

Maybe we can win a few of them (who may have thought of voting for McCain) over.
