The anti-war government nigg@. Lol pretty sure this just proves how the politics of america is racist. That word just rolled off his tongue like he calls all black people that. Lmao hilarious. I'm willing to bet that this is how most of the higher ups and politicians talk about black people in general, let alone obama. They already made plush monkey dolls out of him XD

I don't think he meant to say the N word. Even the left leaning Guardian agrees with me (http://www.theguardian.com...). And his other famous racist quote (I don't want to give black people money) wasn't really racist. But that is besides the point. I want to point out that Obama, too, has racist remarks (https://www.youtube.com...). Is he racist? No, of course he isn't. Peoples' brain freezes. I highly doubt the Republican field is racist, even if a minority of the voters in the south are racist. I mean we have two Cubans, three Spanish speakers (Bush, Rubio, Perry), Jindal, Fiorina, Carson, and others. I think this field is the farthest from racist, lol. Look at the liberal side: old white men (and an old white woman). lel. I am rambling now. But no, I don't think that any of the candidates are racist. On either side.

Easily could have been "government-nik uh" (uh meaning he had a brain fart so it made it sound like the N word). What is a nik, you might ask? "a suffix of nouns that refer, usually derogatorily, to persons who support or are concerned or associated with a particular political cause or group, cultural attitude, or the like" http://dictionary.reference.com...

He merely was trying to say that Obama was associated with a quality, in this case big government, something he doesn't like. Not particularly racist. Adding the uh, by accident (as most politicians do when they speak occasionally, Obama pretty much spams uh and that) made it sound bad. I don't think it was him actually saying the N word.

Now here, he totally did say black (https://www.youtube.com...), but the comment isn't racist if you think about it. But whatever. Both sides of the isle find petty statements to paint either a republican or a democrat president/candidate as racist, politically incorrect, or whatever. He obviously did not say the N word. To me, the g sounds like a half g and half k, which can easily happen if you are speaking.

Oh and whats wrong with the video is that black people aren't the only ones on welfare. At the time more white people were on welfare than black people.

http://www.fns.usda.gov...

Statistics show today that white people and black people are about equally as much on welfare.

The point is, he was trying to paint a picture of a black welfare queen with 9 babies, when in all actuality, white people were suffering just as bad and not worse. Then he went onto say that he wants to simulate the manufacturing sector to create more jobs? That is just code for cheap labor for them black people that can't do sh!t else. He made it painfully clear that he was trying to create factory jobs for black people and not white people.

You can delude yourself all you want into thinking that isn't racist. So can the news papers. I don't care. Just know that every time a poorer person votes republican, they vote outside of their interests.

For the nigg@ statement statement, you can give him the benefit of the doubt all you want. I heard no k at all. It just sounded like he tried to stop him self from saying it, and failed miserably. I'll leave that up to your interpretation thought since you have so much faith fort the left.

The context for why he said that is unclear. He may have been asked specifically about African Americans. Also, the study you cited is only about food assistance, not welfare, in total, lol. And even so, I don't feel like reading that, so give me a page number. I know that Pew Research actually found the opposite; African Americans are twice as likely to be on food stamps (http://www.pewresearch.org...).

I don't see how it is racist. It is a fact that minorities are more likely to be on welfare. I am a minority myself (Hispanic)--and this applies to Latinos who are 7% more likely to be on food stamps. Saying that you don't want to help them through welfare, but instead making them productive, is not racist. It is a lot better than promoting dependency. If anything, that is in their interests. Here is a good study on the issue (http://econweb.ucsd.edu...). Being on welfare not only makes people--regardless of race--dependent on welfare, but increases the chances that their children become dependent. I think everyone can agree that being self-sufficient is a lot better than living on the government teet. So, please explain how this is against their interest?

For the nigg@ statement statement, you can give him the benefit of the doubt all you want. I heard no k at all. It just sounded like he tried to stop him self from saying it, and failed miserably. I'll leave that up to your interpretation thought since you have so much faith fort the left.

Wut? And I actually have no doubt that this was a mistake. He denied saying black in the first quote, and that is dumb. He obviously said it. But the N word? Nope. And, of course, Joe Biden makes comments like this all the time (like the Indian accent thing), but I wouldn't call him a racist. Yet again, people love to shout racism when it suits their goals. Unless, of course, they have valid points to make about a certain candidate. Instead of focusing on an event which may or may not have been racist, discredit him through his stances on social, economic, or foreign policy issues with valid arguments. Don't scream and shout racism (at least you aren't mad about the Koch brothers).

make them productive? you are assuming that all black people are un productive and on welfare that is the point i;m making. He is assuming that all black people are on welfare when they are not.

Welfare Statistics
Total number of Americans on welfare12,800,000
Total number of Americans on food stamps46,700,000
Total number of Americans on unemployment insurance5,600,000
Percent of the US population on welfare4.1 %
Total government spending on welfare annually
(not including food stamps or unemployment) $131.9 billion

Welfare Demographics
Percent of recipients who are white38.8 %
Percent of recipients who are black39.8 %
Percent of recipients who are Hispanic15.7 %
Percent of recipients who are Asian2.4 %
Percent of recipients who are Other3.3 %

Obviously it is around the same for demographics as of 2014
oh sure to work for cheap in factory jobs.

Here is a good study on the issue (http://econweb.ucsd.edu...). Being on welfare not only makes people--regardless of race--dependent on welfare, but increases the chances that their children become dependent. I think everyone can agree that being self-sufficient is a lot better than living on the government teet.

So, please explain how this is against their interest?

He said that manufacturing jobs for black people in the video, hinting that cheap labor is suitable for them. He could've have just as easily said another sector, or job training, but he didn't. As for your opinion. I'm not going to argue opinion with opinion.


For the nigg@ statement statement, you can give him the benefit of the doubt all you want. I heard no k at all. It just sounded like he tried to stop him self from saying it, and failed miserably. I'll leave that up to your interpretation thought since you have so much faith for* the left.

Racist prejudice what ever fits your fancy.

Yet again, people love to shout racism when it suits their goals.

I have no goal for this argument, other than to show you that Rick santorum just used a hasty generalization for black people in america. Starting to see that i'm wasting my time. probably not gonna respond after this.

Ha this is funny (the bolded part). A politician being racist is kind of a valid argument to not want someone. By virtue of having systematic prejudice against a group, they cannot serve that group. You have a very myopic view of what it means to be a good leader. Yes, his stances on social, economic, and foreign policy deserve to be scrutinized, in addition to his personal preferences for (or prejudices against) people. The two are not mutually exclusive.

However, I'm not here to convince the type of person who uses language like "crying racism" - my response to you is not for you, but for others who may be reading and actually have an interest in understanding.

This is off topic for the OP, but does correct some misinformation from another post.
Some of the links may not work, I can get the new ones for anyone requesting any specific link.

From my 25 years experience doing caseload work and extensive research, minorities are not significantly over represented on welfare programs.

~ ~
How much does it cost each person, each year, to pay for welfare?
$1740.98 per year, for every man, woman, child in the United States.
Since about 25% are on the receiving end, it is actually higher, for those paying.
[Keep in mind of those paying no IRS tax, "18,000 were households taking in more than $500,000 -- and of those, 4,000 made more than $1 million".]
http://money.cnn.com...

Consider first the total spent (not counting Social Security or Medicare):
SSI " Supplemental security Income " not social security -for people who didn't work "
$50 Billion a year.
(see page 62 of the report)
http://www.ssa.gov...
Medicaid ( not medicare) spending 2010 - $389 Billion:
http://kff.org...
Food stamps 2011 - $71 Billion:
http://kff.org...

TANF (cash assistance for families - federal funds) $21 Billion 2009
http://archive.acf.hhs.gov...

(So I'm at $531 Billion a year (plus HUD, Energy, More).
Figures for 2012 will be higher.

Based on a population of 305 million, paying $531 Billion, is $1740.98 per person, to pay for welfare programs.
~ ~ ~ ~~
But about 25% are on the receiving end.

Here is how I arrive at that:
The largest single welfare program is Medicaid (NOT Medicare).
20% of all citizens are on Medicaid - 2009 - more today.
http://www.statehealthfacts.org...
Another large program is food stamps (SNAP). About 47 million in a nation of about 305 million means about 15%.
http://www.statehealthfacts.org...
There is considerable overlap between these groups.
The other welfare groups: SSI (not social security), TANF (cash assistance), housing (HUD), energy assistance, WIC, etc, would be contained in one of these two groups - total overlap.
So the total amount on 'welfare' (which we are saying does not include social security or Medicare, since they are contributed to by the beneficiary), and we are not considering VA beneficiaries, since they served their country to receive benefits, would be less than 35%.
I put the number at about 25% - possibly higher, but not much.
~ ~
NOTE:
There are some news stories out, putting the number as high as 47%.
I have done some research of the studies that generated these numbers, and from what I see, the numbers make one talley for every program recipient. that is, if one person received both food stamps and medical assistance, that is 'two welfare program recipients' - even though only one person.

Here is one example:
http://www.weeklystandard.com...

We are told this information comes from "U.S. Census"s Survey of Income and Program Participation"j better know as 'SIPP'.
Here is the home page:
http://www.census.gov...

I invite the reader to wade through this to show I am mistaken.
I do not believe it can be done - but one has to extrapolate the information, no easy matter.
This report may be helpful:

Stop the presses!!!
Some jackass rich white guy who grew up in Virginia in the 60s used a racial term!!!

I don't know if he meant anything inherently racist by using that term or not, and I don't care. I hope this sinks his chances, like it did with Rick Perry in 2012. If he was the GOP candidate, I'd very well might consider voting DFL just to spite him, although, not because of this.

By the way, what does "your" presidential hopefuls mean?
My work here is, finally, done.

The anti-war government nigg@. Lol pretty sure this just proves how the politics of america is racist. That word just rolled off his tongue like he calls all black people that. Lmao hilarious. I'm willing to bet that this is how most of the higher ups and politicians talk about black people in general, let alone obama. They already made plush monkey dolls out of him XD

Now who's over-analyzing? LOL
I think that is quite the wide net you are casting, to be honest.
The old (60+) white folks from the south very well may talk like this, but, that doesn't necessarily mean they have racist intent. Being objective, is the speech hateful due to race and connotations, or is his word choice a product of his times? I don't know, and like I said, I don't really care. I don't like him regardless.

Regardless, do you really think the vast majority of politicians, including local ones, think and speak this way?
My work here is, finally, done.

The very fact that a right-wing religious zealot and political reactionary like Rick Santorum is even considered by some to be a viable Presidential candidate is yet another sign that the Apocalypse could be upon us.

I always liked Bob Kerrey's quote about him, made back when Kerrey was a Nebraska Senator..........."Santorum. That's Latin for 'a$$hole'."
