    Plenty of us white folk feel the exact same way about Romney. Silver spoon indeed. Not that I don't mind people him or other people being wealthy, cause I don't. It's great. Congrats to you. But have a little compassion and understanding for those who aren't and be more in touch with what they have to go through. It's easy to keep caught up in a bubble when you have staff and servants all around you taking care of your needs. People just want Mitt and other elected officials to get past that. And no...stopping at a roadside dinner for 10 minutes shaking hands and kissing babies while on the campaign trail isn't it. Romney saying that he is "unemployed too" isn't how you relate to someone who's struggling to make ends meet or even eat.

    People just need someone to listen and understand. That is all anyone wants. Romney fails to understand this. He thinks they just want "free stuff".

    Didn't read it, though I understand the sentiment behind it.

    I'm trying to cut back on my daily dose of vitriol.

    What a racist piece of crap rant. It won't surprise me much if it continues to be so well received and apparently supported by members in this forum. Let's see how this rolls....

    As an aside, the article seems to accuse Romney and Republicans generally as being homophobic, while failing to mention that one of the biggest round of applause Romney received by the NAACP audience was when he promised to defend traditional marriage (DOMA).

    Yup, I noticed that. Great to see one group of people who still complain of not being treated equally applaud someone who wants to continue to treat another group of people also unequally.

    You're right. A lot of it is anger filled, racist, and completely out of line...

    But damn if it isn't funny and gets the point across. And keep in mind that it is this same NAACP that is for gay marriage, if not based on equality alone.

    But the first 2 lines smack of Richard Pryor and Snaps. Reed Richards... Classic. Honestly.. try to recite this in your best Richard Pryor voice, and try your hardest not to laugh. I'll guarantee you you can't.

    I say bravo to this, as the guy makes some seriously valid points and what Romney didn't say in his speech speaks more volume to the black community than what he did say.

    He definitely does not have the Black vote.

    Every time I read something like that, it just makes me more impatient for Election Day so I can cast my vote for Mitt.

    There are plenty of comedians and orators that spew racist invectives against blacks in a very graphic and funny way, who would get ripped to shreads in this forum for their racist rants.

    Please cite evidence that NAACP membership supports gay marriage.

    The NAACP board voted to support marriage equality for gays, but at least half of the members of this group still oppose it. This is more about rallying around Obama than a true moving away from their true feelings against gay sexuality and same sex marriage I suspect.

    Not too sure about that.

    Hard to be 'moving away from their true feelings against gay marriage' when they were indifferent to supporting it.

    If you are looking for some driving evidence that they are secretly against gay marriage, you're not finding it.

    That means up to half of the membership supports it.

    Mission accomplished (cite wise).

    I'm disappointed to see anyone condone that type of language and disrespect...it's a racist rant and shows quite a lot of hatred towards white people. I'm not even saying I am disagreeing with some of the concepts but the way in which is conveyed makes the writer look like a bigot. How would that be received if it was flipped and turned on Obama? People here are fast to pull the "bigot" phrase out but no one has here...why is that?

    Because I didn't read it.

    I could tell by all the deleted words that it was pretty much just a rant.

    Who needs to read rants?

    I think people need to tone down the rhetoric a bit. It seems as though the US is becoming more and more polarized, and for no good reason but to fuel egos and to whip up the voters into an irrational froth. I lean very much to the left, but I recognize the right also care deeply about their country and are just trying to do their best for it. We'd all be a lot better off if more people voted than shouted.

    Also to note.

    The NAACP - an organization based on skin color. Inherently racist by nature.

    Not that I don't agree with a lot of what this guy said either. But gotta keep everything in perspective.

    Huh? Racism is about power, and people of color in the US can hardly be accused of oppressing anybody. The NAACP looks after the civil rights of a minority that has been subjected to considerable social, legal, and economic discrimination. It does not discriminate membership on the basis of skin color. Perhaps one day when the playing field is truly equal, the NAACP will no longer be necessary.

    No. Racism is about association of skin color. The NAACP is inherently racist, just as the KKK is, or any group that supports an association based on skin color, regardless of intentions.

    No. There is a clear distinction between an organization that wants to oppress blacks and an organization that wants to support black rights. Calling people who want to help black minorities racist is twisted and juvenile.
