Re: Condi, the 1st Black President?

Yssys (Guest) ·
1. I strongly feel that Condi will never actually be elected into this position. So that talk might be the only way that she is put into office. 2. I feel that if an election were held, most Americans would put a white woman in office before they elect a person of ANY color or ethnicity other than white. So if Condi does become the first black president, it most likely will not be legal and it will be decided by the congress or the Supreme court. Just call me a cynic.

LOL, yes it is mighty ironic that men who belong to an ideology that encourages harsh punishments for criminal behavior want leniency when they are the culprits. I believe that if you are a Neoconservative, you should be loyal and demand the same from yourself that you do others. Also, if we were to apply the conservative approach to crimefighting, white-collar crime should elect much more severe punishments than blue-collar crime.

Black men and women in America and in the Diaspora have never given up our African identity, nor should we ever give that up. One of the things that must be looked at is the European white man and woman, who never gave up their European identity; it is imbedded in the laws, culture and governance of America. It is as much a part of America structurally as racism is. This is why White folk from other nations can come to America and in no time be integrated into the larger society; it is built...

The answer is... not a damn thing. We should not be voting people into office because they are Black. We should only be voting people into office who can and will do the right thing. Those who fail to do so, should be voted out at the first opportunity. But then again, if people followed this simple philosophy, Bush would never have been re-elected. Go figure.
