re: Dr. Ben Carson Hits Back At Vile MSNBC Race Baiter Toure: I’m No Uncle Tom


I don't know what exactly it is about Ben Carson... but I really like the guy. Maybe it's because he seems honest and sincere.

Toure is just an light-weight, left-wing bomb thrower. If Carson has any self-esteem, he won't give a damn what he has to say. By the way, I like this Carson quote which sounds like something I've written in response to other posters a hundred times on this board:

quote:

You know, intelligent people tend to talk about the facts. They don’t sit around and call each other names. That’s what you can find on a third grade playground.

I guess great minds think alike.

I know I had the term, 'it doesn't take a brain surgeon or rocket scientist,' in my head and comparing the good doctors intel to Obama.

I would like to give Obama some credit and say I think he is intelligent but I truly think his ivey league papers were bought and paid for. Possibly, because I despise Obama's partisan politics; I fail to see any intelligent thing he has said?

I want to know why Powell didn't pull all of that race-baiting crap when he was in the W Bush WH. I knew he was left leaning but his race-baiting is shocking.

How did Powell race bait?

colin powell tries to interpret phrases that may not be racist as racist. it's not the same thing

so Colin Powell separates people by groups, and then gets mad when people ask him about it and says they're racist for separating people into groups. how does this apply to the OP at all?





I can't ever tell if people are too incompetent to recognize these apparent differences or if they are simply trying to peddle a cheap tactic to try and cut down any perceived ground being made by an opponent.

Either way, it is incredibly frustrating trying to have an honest and intelligent discussion when these people step in.

he's taking innocent terms and calling them racist

"Chicago" is racist

that's the lowest level of race baiting, but it's brilliant b/c it's indefensible (b/c it's such a reach)

"refutation" is a racist term b/c a white man used that term once to confuse a freed slave

Man, you are really trying hard to derail this thread from the OP subject matter, aren't you? Have any comments accept to try and steer the subject elsewhere?

One man's innocent term is another man's dogwhistle. I agree with Powell 100% but there's always some subjectivity with these types of discussions. Two questions: 1) Would it be racist to call Alana Dershowitz a Jew lawyer? 2) Do you have any doubt that if a politician called him a Jew lawyer, he would be accused of being a anti-Semitic?

possibly, but that doesn't make it racist

is "Chicago" a racist term? i mean you realize the race baiters pushed their golden goose so far they went into pure insanity, right?

as a person from a corrupt state, i say "obviously"

that's why it's such a great example to use when discussing this new progressive trick

Evidently anything can be racist. Good thing we have these cultural elitists to explain to the common folk what is and isn't. I've probably been "racist" many times without even knowing it.

Chicago isn't racist. I wasn't aware we were talking about that. Shucking and jiving has a history. Lazy has a history.
