Fox News makes a reference to Obama being black. Shocker.

    Noooo, they're not racist...

    Fox Nation Calls Obama Birthday Party 'Hip-Hop BBQ'

    Basically, according to Fox News, Obama is too busy being black to run the country.

    I've seen that before, perhaps not at MR.

    Honestly, Barack looks like a sick man, when shown with real Blacks.

    He looks as if he is jaundiced, rather than Black. ;)

    I don't see any references to Obama being black, or that he's too busy to run the country.

    What I get from it is that someone feels Obama spent an awful lot of time and expense on a birthday party with the country's economy in the shape it's in.

    In any event, my interpretation of the screencap isn't relevant to my challenge of the OP's statement:

    Not just a party though. A hip hop BBQ.

    I didn't claim it was.

    To my knowledge, only one of those fellas is even involved in hip-hop.

    It's a bit of a stretch. Dubya's BBQ would probably have been more of a narcotics anonymous meeting than a klan reunion.

    I had no idea that 'BBQ' was a black stereotype? :confused:

    When you have JayZ at your BBQ ... it becomes a Hip Hop BBQ.

    I think this thread's only purpose is an attempt to slam Fox ... :rolleyes:

    Only BBQ chicken. "They" can't afford beef. :rolleyes:

    I guess Fox doesn't want the President to have any down-time?

    Perhaps they hope to kill him by working him to death? :confused:

    Yeah, and it is a pretty weak attempt.

    Fox "News" is a joke. A bad joke. A really bad joke.

    News? No - opinions, biases, beliefs, lies, and made up crap.

    Then again - most, if not all, TV news is crap. :mad:

    /rant

    Sorry, but TV news is such sensationalized junk, I couldn't help myself.

    (I'll go hide now while you have at me...) :eek:

    You obviously didn't read the OP closely enough. The underlying assertion - that Fox News is racist and demonstrated its racism in the BBQ article - was clearly supported in the OP itself. You see, there was a supporting quote lifted from "one of the commentator's on Huffpo's site." That supporting quote was:

    Case closed. Fox News is racist and demonstrated that racism with the BBQ article.

    I mean, look at it this way. It's not like you see posters trying to steer the conversation away from the OP by avoiding the OP's premise. If anything, you see people rightly reminding us that articles from Huffington Post (and it's commentators) is s-o-l-i-d footing.

    I'm sure CaptMurdock will be along momentarily to answer some of the questions raised.

    I thought Obama was bi-racial.

    And is this a surprise to anyone?

    Also, why can't the man have a birthday party?

    How do they reconcile the phrase "Hip-Hop BBQ" with a guest list that includes (from the link in OP) the following?
    Maybe Eric Holder is straight gangsta?

    What type of music did they play at the BBQ? If it was hip-hop it might have been a hip-hop bbq.

    Whats wrong with a hip-hop bbq again?

    hip hop? Racist?

    BBQ? Racist?

    Al Sharpton was there?? Why is it that no one seems to get as annoyed as i do at his presence? Why is he a legitimate figure? Why is he not known to be the bigot/liar that he really is? I pisses me off so much.
