I have a lot of black friends and they were posting it. I thought it was rude and very racist but I did not say anything to them. I did have a conversation with one of them in person and said if Romney had won and I put "My President is White" what would have happened...they agreed and took it off their page that night.

AF, " BTW btc, what do you think of all the people on FB the day after the election making the comment "my president is black?".

I do not know why that was all over your FB page, it was not on mine and I have conservative and liberal posters on my page.

This story was actually broken by The Nation. In fact that is who Daily Kos links to as their source:

"This is an exclusive from The Nation."

Reading is fundamental.

"Yeah, that is the best defense you have."

I wasn't attempting to defend any line of the Republicans. I was simply pointing out that the DailyKos is generally a site that's full of hate, and people that are race baiting ideological partisan haters, require a certain amount fuel to maintain that level of hate. While i'm sure its not the main source that fills people with their unnecessary hateful racial baiting attitudes, a bountiful helping of the DailyKos can help with that in a pinch.
Have to stay sharp.

Really btc, another race targeted topic? This is really getting ridiculous. BTW btc, what do you think of all the people on FB the day after the election making the comment "my president is black?"

theTower, you cannot defend the line of the Republican Party so you attack what you think is the source.

Yeah, that is the best defense you have.

theTower, I got this from a Twitter link about James Carter III's research.

It is there, it has been there all this time and this explains the evolution of the Republican, former Dixiecrats' Southern Strategy and where all this "coding", Atwater's words, came from.

There is no hate except with the Republican Southern Strategy.

"Warning! This will be offensive......"

Your're correct. The DailyKos is offensive. Not surprising that you would read it though.
You need fuel for your hate.
