    I'm far from an Obama fan but somehow totally missed him going in to "whites are evil" mode.

    I think it was around the time he had the Muslim Prayer Curtain installed in the White House.

    Hope that helps with your ever so challenging interpretation of the most basic things.

    A lot of white Republicans used that day to try and tell us racism was over in the US. Talk about misguided..

    A black guy, being in the oval Office, saying he coming for white people's guns. BS number 1

    We are talking about a guy who has a white mother and was raised by white grandparents who were his true parent. they must have done something right cause he grew up to be President and then he goes into full whites are evil mode. His father wasn't an American black with none of the baggage of growing up here, so where did this angst come from?

    This level of stupidity, thinking this is true, is just unnatural. You're a clown.

    Here's just one example of it:

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/...oups-rcna17169

    According to data collected by The Washington Post, police shot and killed at least 1,055 people nationwide last year, the most since the newspaper began tracking fatal shootings by officers in 2015. That is more than the 1,021 shootings in 2020 and the 999 in 2019.

    Black people, who account for 13 percent of the U.S. population, accounted for 27 percent of those fatally shot and killed by police in 2021, according to Mapping Police Violence, a nonprofit group that tracks police shootings. That means Black people are twice as likely as white people to be shot and killed by police officers.


    And that's only in the realm of police brutality.

    Then there's this:

    https://www.gao.gov/blog/racial-disp...ole-government

    Unequal treatment can start at a young age. In 2018, we reported that starting in pre-school, children as young as 3 and 4 have been suspended and expelled from school—a pattern that can continue throughout a child’s education. In K-12 public schools, Black students, boys, and students with disabilities were disproportionately disciplined (e.g., suspended or expelled), according to our review of the Department of Education’s national civil rights data.

    These disparities were widespread and persisted regardless of the type of disciplinary action, level of school poverty, or type of public school attended. For example, while only 15.5% of public school students were Black, about 39% of students suspended from school were Black—an overrepresentation of about 23 percentage points


    And this too:

    https://www.stkate.edu/academics/hea...-in-healthcare

    Implicit bias is the tendency to unconsciously associate groups (for example, people of color) or category markers (for example, Blackness) and a negative evaluation (implicit prejudice). In a seminal report by the Institute of Medicine in 2003, “Unequal Treatment,” a team of physicians, behavioral scientists, public health experts, and other health professionals concluded that even when access-to-care barriers (such as income and insurance) were controlled for, racial and ethnic minorities received worse healthcare than white people received.

    Racial and ethnic minority populations experience health disparities — differences in health outcomes that reflect social inequalities. Asian Americans, Black or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, American Indians, and Alaska Natives all suffer from the effects of implicit bias in healthcare, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

    Nearly 20 years since the publication of “Unequal Treatment,” the study’s results have been replicated again and again, confirming that implicit bias by medical practitioners and within the healthcare system plays a role in negative health outcomes for people of color. Implicit bias tests show, for instance, that physicians are more likely to provide requested pain treatment for white patients compared with Black patients. Repeated studies show that American healthcare workers, even those who are avowedly anti-racist, demonstrate a significant implicit bias against patients of color and a preference for white patients, as reported by Scientific American.


    Racism permeates this country from education to health care to the justice system. But the GQP would have us believe it doesn't exist. They want discussions of race and racism out of the public eye, out of schools, and out of everywhere. They want people to believe that everything is equal and racism is gone. They even convince people like bop that racism ended when slavery ended, which was something bop cited in another thread when this topic came up.

    And coming back to the topic of the thread:

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/...-is-overturned

    When it comes to the effect on minorities, the numbers are unambiguous. In Mississippi, people of color comprise 44 percent of the population but 81 percent of women receiving abortions, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which tracks health statistics.

    In Texas, they’re 59 percent of the population and 74 percent of those receiving abortions. The numbers in Alabama are 35 percent and 69 percent. In Louisiana, minorities represent 42 percent of the population, according to the state Health Department, and about 72 percent of those receiving abortions.

    “Abortion restrictions are racist,” said Cathy Torres, an organizing manager with Frontera Fund, a Texas organization that helps pay for abortions. “They directly impact people of color, Black, brown, Indigenous people … people who are trying to make ends meet.”

    Why the great disparities? Laurie Bertram Roberts, executive director of the Alabama-based Yellowhammer Fund, which provides financial support for abortions, said women of color in states with restrictive abortion laws often have limited access to health care and a lack of choices for effective birth control. Schools often have ineffective or inadequate sex education.


    Racial inequality and racism exist in all facets of american life. It's undeniable and anyone who tries to peddle lies of it's inexistance or it's impact/pervasiveness is also racist (whether they mean to be or not).

    His approval among white people started at 59% and went down to 36% never going up.I don’t know if the numbers are broken down by age. I would expect to see a even more expedited drop there.

    At best, he spent a couple of years on one of those Caribbean bases playing grab *** with his bunk mates.

    At worst, he's lying....only furthering his case as a traitor to the country.

    Well, he claims that he played a part in helping to lose the war in Vietnam.
