The story about Obama meeting over a race issue was on today.
Obama had a drink with the two sides (black and white)
At the end the news reporter, a white female whose name I don't remember, said something a long the lines of "Maybe next time they will discuss over a glass of koolaid or lemonade." Did that statement seem weird to anyone else?
What the hell are the "two sides", can you really criticise somebody for mentioning lemonade if you are referring to races as "sides". Well Bredavies, you may well be on the 'black' side, but I sure as hell don't consider myself to be on the 'white' side.
Suppose maybe she was just saying lemonade or koolaid since those are not alcoholic beverages?
Nope. Didn't sound weird to me. What sounded weird was you loosely tossing around the terms "black" and "white".
I worked in marketing in the Beverage Alcohol business for many years. They're all going gaga over what as drunk that night -- no one drank an American beer. Big brouhaha in the beverage alcohol industry.
I'm glad I am not the only one that found that strange. I know that race has long been a much bigger issue in the US, and I am from the UK, but it makes you wonder what needs to happen for people to lose their twisted views about race. You have a mixed race, half caucasion half african american, president for goodness sake. If that does not bring America together then you may as well just give up trying.
That brings me to another point, since when has Obama been 'black' it bugs me, really bugs me..... he is just as much white as black.
Bud Light, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Light...damn foreign beer...
Some people, especially the press, will look for anything to criticize. Had they all had lemonade, the Save the Lemon people would have been out in force. You notice (at least in our area) you never saw Obama or Biden actually take a drink. Then they would have been accused of drinking on the job. The press needs to get a life.

After reading and contributing to so many posts about Christianity on here I'd love for someone to answer this question. Which form (if any)of Christianity is the real deal? It's one thing to get into heated debates over who believes in what religion, but it seems strange to me that there are so...

Did the Republican senate ignore Americans, just to spite Obama?In the recent failure to pass new background checks for gun purchases, the Republican senate ignored the overwhelming support of the American citizens to pass this bill. This was done because they thought that a bipartisan passing of...

Turns out that Romney showed the press a partial tax statement for 2010. It was discovered thereafter that a significan section of his tax form is missing. That part, by law, tells what the overseas investments do. For example, does Romney's company in the Cayman Island hold controllling stock in a...

In a rather desperate effort to divert the gaze of the American people away from the wreck that is his presidency, Obama, in conjunction with his press secretary, has started to call the various scandals that have bedeviled him the past 12 months or so, as PHONY.Really? I don't see...
