As most, if not all polititions will sell their mothers glass eye if they would be elected. Your correct Lee is just another racest in a long line of many on the Obama team.

Spike Lee is no racist! He wants Obama in because Obama will finally give us Blacks real equality! The White people have ruled America long enough.

The term "Chocolate City" has been used affectionately by African-Americans to refer to Washington and other predominantly black cities, and was the title of a 1975 album by the funk band Parliament. Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was criticized for racial divisiveness after Katrina for urging residents to rebuild a "chocolate New Orleans."

Lee is a Racist as is Farrakhan who has also endorsed Obama, and Obama's Statements about people in the midwest and "Typical White People" are on the Fringe of Being Racist, and going to the church and listening to his pastor spew racist Rhetoric all those Years, Michelle Obama never being proud of her country, and her College Paper was based on the Assumption that all Blacks are denied equality! A Racist Idea used to segregate and divide Racially! All Racist!

Would you agree??

It's "NOT" the Man (Obama), it's the "NOOSE of LIBERALISM"

Why America "PAY'S HIGH GAS PRICES!"

Christians and Muslims Worldwide are offended by "LIBERAL" Western Family Values... Black Infanticide, Klan Parent Hood Abortions" for Money Profit and More, Acceptance of Pornography, Misogyny, Degradation of Grace, "NAMBLA Protected by the Liberal Strong Arm the ACLU," Liberal Ignominiousness Values, Intolerance/Castigation of Religion, Defilement of Marriage, Trojan Priest Michael Pfleger's connection to Catholic Pedophilia, Trinity's Theology of Racist Hate, and possibly "YOU" The Keeper's of such Liberal Cherished Values!

Oil-Producing Muslim countries, Do "NOT" Want to sell oil or Contribute to the Success of LIBERALISM, the Evil U.S. WEST?"

Liberalism continually offends, threatens and try's to influence Bible Christian's and Muslim Culture with "Sick Liberal Values?"

How can an "Obama" Pretend to be the "UNITER and HEALER" of the World, when he's "NOOSED" by this "Foolish Liberal Sickness?"

It's Obama that needs "Votes" and I predict that Obama and his "Liberal BROOD," will offend more than enough voters by November to lose the election too....

Sorry Bro, your gravely mistaken Lee is in the same boat as Jesse. Al, Farrakhan and a few others. They are all in it for the money and to get it, continue to cry about in equality. You can not gain equality through the White house because there is no inequaility.

The "NOOSE of LIBERALISM"

This November Election will be Better than Watching Howard Dean Fighting with "Skunks" at the "CORRUPT DNC Alley" over old "SKANK" with the Clinton Brood!

Inept Obama KLAN Elitist Howard Dean will offer "No Refunds or Exchange of Vote for Hillary during the 08 Convention!"

Many More Thanks! to Florida and Michigan for Helping Obama with a "SELECTED NOT ELECTED WIN" since Florida and Michigans vote did not count"!

Grand Gaffe `Master Howard Dean and the corrupt DNC planned it that way...

All Votes were Final, however it's never over until the Fat Lady Hillary sings!~

Elitist` Gaffe Master Howard Dean will Blame YOU, "The Educated Liberal" for Losing Obama to the GOP, if nominated, an Easy November Knockout Win.

The Agony of Selected Victory...*...The Agony of a Fall Defeat!!!

It's Obama that needs the "White Votes" and I predict that if Obama is nominated, his "LIBERAL BROOD," will offend more than enough voters by November to lose the election too....

I have voted for a Black Man in a Presidential Primary before, and I would Vote for one for President, I also would Vote for a Woman, But with the 2 that the Democrats have put up this year, Niether one of them are of any Character or Experiance that I would vote for. Obama and Hillary are just 2 more Politicians as usual and the biggest swing to the Extreme Left we have even seen, And McCain is not worth Voting for also! I am only going to make my vote for a Vice President because I do not want any of the above!

The "NOOSE of LIBERALISM"

The Washington Liberal Elite's of Hate! Cast of Grand Old Elite Opportunism Masters: Biden, Carter, Dodd, Edwards, Gore, Kennedy, Kerry, Leahy, Rangel, Wexler, Race Card KKK Chief Architect Robert C. Byrd, and Many More...

Washington Liberal Elite's have `Humped' the backs of African-American's for the past 45+ years with empty promises and exploitation for $$$ MONEY $$$, POWER and VOTES...

White Racist Liberal's made back room deals with early civil rights leaders and brokered their block of votes in the mid 60's.

Racism is Nurtured and Protected by the so called 'Liberal Elite's, The Machine and Ignorance behind Racism for $$$ MONEY $$$, POWER and VOTES.

RACIST Liberal Elite's and Black Foremen: The Black Panthers, Farrakhan, Jackson, Nation of Islam, NAACP, Julian Bond, Race Cop Al Sharpton, Reverend wRight, Trojan Priest Michael Pfleger's connection to Catholic Pedophilia and possibly "YOU"...are..." THE TEACHER'S and KEEPER'S OF HATE!"

"RACIST" Liberals would be "OUT OF A JOB," Govt Offices and High Places, if they didn't keep up their "RACIST" causes, Not to mention "GOOD PAYING MILLION $$$ JOBS - SELLING "RACISM and LIES" to You, Getting Rich off the Backs of Poor People, Begging $$$ Money $$$ From Their Enslaved Brood and Paying "NO" Taxes Too!!

It's Obama that needs the "White Votes" and I predict that if Obama is nominated, his "LIBERAL BROOD," will offend more than enough voters by November to lose the election too....

Liberal's don't Defend America, "LIBERAL'S PUNISH AMERICA."

Remarks like this only magnify the possibility of a real race war in America. We don't have to fear a foreign power invading our nation and causing turmoil. I think a civil war could be a future reality.
Obama's wish to unite this country just might backfire. Equality is a dream very hard to attain. Human nature tends to make us hold on to
things that have happened to us in the past, and makes it hard for us to forgive and move forward.
I hope that animosity and hatred do not come to the forefront of this new political era.
I hope that with a new black president, we can overlook the color of our skin, and focus on solving problems we all share as human beings.
