    Got this in an Email this morning. I don't know if it's actually by Buchanan, but very true nonetheless.

    Buchanan to Obama

    by Patrick J. Buchanan

    Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.?

    Fair enough.
    But this time, it has to be a 2-way conversation..
    White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to.

    This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions,
    grievances and demands heard.
    And among them are these:

    First, America has been the best country on earth for black
    folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from
    Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million,
    were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the
    greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.

    Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he
    is an American.

    Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up
    blacks than white Americans.
    Untold trillions have been spent since the '60's on welfare,
    food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants,
    student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax
    Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the
    African-American community into the mainstream.

    Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged
    in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action,
    contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants
    over white applicants.

    Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals
    all over America have donated time and money to support
    soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and
    nursing homes for blacks.

    We hear the grievances.
    Where is the gratitude??

    Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks.

    Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown , and ask the white kids
    in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League
    recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids?

    Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime
    and incarceration rates for African-Americans are 7 times
    those of white America ? Is it really white America 's fault that
    illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70%
    and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities
    has reached 50%?

    Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a
    failure of the black community itself?

    As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial
    crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence.
    Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals
    choose black victims 3% of the time, black criminals
    choose white victims 45% of the time?

    Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times
    more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies
    were 139 times as common in the first 3 years of this decade.

    We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about
    Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena
    And all turned out to be hoaxes.

    But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites
    that are real, we hear nothing.

    Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before,
    about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.

    Why are conservatives so obsessed about race? Everything is race this, race that. Powell only supported Obama because he's black!

    Sorry, but this isn't a "race" election, since there are plenty of white people (like myself) who will be voting for Obama.

    So once again, YAWN

    And I believe that is where the real fear resides in this election. ;)
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    First of all, I don't give a shit who Colin Powell endorses. I don't make my decisions based on what someone else tells me.

    Second of all, the point of the OP is that conservatives are tired of having race thrown up in our faces every time we don't agree with a black liberal point of view. We 're tired of being lectured about racism in America as if it's a one way street. Yes, there are some racist ass people in this country, but the people who don't tiptoe around race don't deserve to be lumped into that category.

    Curiously, the ONLY time I hear race enter into a conversation is when liberals bring it up.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Actually, the conservatives I know couldn't care less about a persons race.
    It's the black people who seem to be obsessed with their own skin color.

    Powell only supported Obama because he's black!
    Powell himself said that's true. He MOSTLY suppored Obama due to race.

    Powell – RACE is the major factor for support of Obama.

    On “Meet the Press” Sunday, Powell’s explanation for his backing of Obama made clear that he thought Obama’s race was a major factor for his support, but not the only one.
    Powell crossed party lines once before. In 1994 to support L. Douglas Wilder for governor of Virginia. Yes, a black man.

    Obama rewards Powell with an advisor position on his staff – Politics as usual.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Do you realize the irony of that statement, coming from a liberal? Trouble is in this country, we've done nothing but talk about race. The conversation has gone on too long.

    ACORN announces that calling them on their registration and voter fraud is racict because they represent the poor black people. Libs declare any thing said about Obama, even positive things like daring to call him clean and articulate is racist. Most terrorists are young males of Middle Eastern descent, but if a young male of Middle Eastern decent is acting suspicious, doing anything about it is racist, according to the libs and moonbats. 90% of the illegal immigrants in this nation are Hispanic, so doing anything about closing the sieve we call a border is racict. And if a conservative complains about it, WE are the ones who are all about race? Libs can turn anything into race, and they work very hard at it.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.
