I'm sure the rest of the folks in your trailer park feel the same way.

Think about it, Obama is your man.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Depends what you call "racism." I personally believe in racial pride. The White race accomplished so much why shouldn't we have pride? Airplanes, spaceships, skyscrapers, discovered the world, put a man on the moon.


Do you think Africans could build a Mercedes Benz equal? Or any car for that matter?

Some of the new Mercedes are assembled in South Africa, but I don't think any were designed there.

Yeah, I'd be so full of pride, I'd just get up and start goosestepping all around the place. Come on dude, join in with your friends!

You are mistaking accomplishment and capability or potential. Racial pride, as you use it, would imply that other races are incapable, which isn't true.

Isn't that the same as pity? You look down in pity at someone correct?
