    I need an answer: Why are a lot of people so adamant about keeping racism alive? When humans keep issues stirred up then there is a gain and not always a fair gain. It can simply be used to one's advantage. Quite honestly, the excuse of racism is being laughed at in my community. Yes, I am white but I am sick and tired of so many things being blamed on racism. Moreover, I can honestly say that the white people in my life could care less if a person is black or white so I am not at all sure it is the whites who are creating this drama. The racism excuse is getting very old and used up and I believe it has ran it's course and its tank is almost empty. Period.

    There is nothing to get over. calling a spade a spade. Oprah has to look at herself and asking the "pot" if the kettle is black is even more ridiculous.

    Truth is Oprah is as racist as they come. She hides it well but like many of her piers it surfaces as she keeps speaking. Any logical person knows that Obama is a poor president but Oprah and so many others will make her wealth from whites then show her true colors. She is a bitter disgrace. Fox news is as balanced as they come because only on that show do the have a democrat speaking on every topic. She is a shameful bitter woman

    Not everything gets blamed on Obama-the blame is there because his arrogant ass does nothing about any single thing that happens. He has his own script and he sticks to it. He lives with the thought that if his lackluster ass does nothing then he does nothing wrong. You have seen the type, they are everywhere.

    @Stan...what's sad is the one black man makes it into office and you and your kind blame the woes of the world on him. Really?! And what all the white men that held that office had everything running smoothly? "You ppl" live your lives in absolute denial because you are raised that way and want to stay that way. God forbid yall accept responsibility for creating the majority of the crap that's wrong with this country. God help you poor misguided souls.

    Once again you bring up your own racism. Do you actually think that anyone gives a damn about his color. What people give a damn about is his responsibly, his actions, his leadership, his solutions. Standing on a podium talking about gay rights or Trayvon or explaining to me about the "tender feelings" of blacks is not at all leading, It is catering to his voter base. He is sympathizing to the ones that feel picked on. He is a civil rights organizer and his actions show that! This is all he wants to do- he doesnt know how to do anything else! His answer to everything is I NEED MORE MONEY. How the hell do you think he got into the whitehouse? Whites voted for him! If this is such a racist country then why in the hell are minorities sneaking across the boarder to get here? You are the ones that need to understand that you are the ones that continue to talk about him being black and you do what most do- scream racism each time that someone goes against him. Look in the mirror.

    I think Stan is right!!! No one is saying Obama is not doing anything right because he is BLACK. He's not doing much right, because he just wants to please the minorities who supported him. This is not a racial issue as much as you want to think it is. He's just not a good president. And by the way, we haven't had a REALLY GOOD president in a long time. I blame a lot on the politicians in the House and Senate for all the stalemates too. NOTHING is getting done!!!

    Your right Oprah it's so sad. All these rap stars with their drawers down below their ass, holding their shit talkin bout nigga nigga nigga niggas, it's so sad. All this black on white crime, 3 blacks beating a 13 yr. old white kid on a school bus and no black leaders speak out... So sad? 70% of black mothers raising kids without a father in the home because he is somewhere else..,., it pitifully sad- Oprah! Alec Baldwin talkin bout queers and he's still on my tube, looking as stupid as ever but whos really cares...Cause Baldwin is in Obamas camp.... So sad! Oprah you and so many others bought into Obama and here we are... As fu*ked as before... So so so sad. Paula Deen now that's not sad Oprah.... That's a travesty, that is a public demoralization of a woman who was crucified for something that takes place and is accepted in different cultures of society if... You are the right shade? This double standard and the propaganda that goes with it is not only sad it's cowardly sick.

    Stan, you seem like a ANGRY person. Dont let things you can't control take control of you. If you are not happy where you are then you proberly won't get to where you should be. Choose not a life of imitation.
