And Speaking Of Bias…

Posted: August 28, 2008 in Just "Why?"

Further proof that when it is all said and done, party comes first. Nothing wrong with that IMO as we all have them. But its when folks try to evoke ‘logic’ to talk around the obvious is when they end up looking ridiculous.

And what does Lee think of Obama’s new running mate, Joe Biden, the man who said Obama wasn’t ready to be President, even if he was the first “clean” African-American candidate?

“Look,” said Lee. “Biden was trying to be the nominee then. If Barack’s cool with him, then I am. And Joe Biden can be the muscle guy” who can tussle with John McCain. (source)

    Do people really believe Biden was trying to make a racial comment here? He could have said the exact same thing about a white person. They just have a different meaning when black people hear those words…

    Duane,

    Folks talk trash about each other all the time in everything for sports to politics. It is called being competitive and those that “can’t handle the heat should stay out of the kitchen”

    If Obama’s skin was sooooo thin that he would be offended by that statement he should have just gone home (which he did not).

    How people view statements like that clearly defines their position in this world and life. People that cant take a jab and are unable to handle an PRECIEVED insult from a competitor or another player in the game live small lives and have never been a part of someting “big” that requires compromise by the stake holders that have POWER and INFLUENCE.

    “But its when folks try to evoke ‘logic’ to talk around the obvious is when they end up looking ridiculous.”

    No one looks ridiculous here, at this level of politics it is just “Life”, or how things go!

    “Look,” said Lee. “Biden was trying to be the nominee then. If Barack’s cool with him, then I am. And Joe Biden can be the muscle guy” who can tussle with John McCain.

    What more can you say about this statement? IMO his point of view is 100% valid. Let not make somthing out of nothing.

    It’s funny that now its referred to as “being competitive”. Up until Biden was picked to be his running mate, he wasn’t even on the Black radar because of the dumb race comments he said in the past. NO NEGRO stood up then to say he was being competitive. Now, just one text message has given him not only a pass, but defenders as well.
