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.
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.
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. Stuart
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...
I have a friend that is 3 months pregnant and has been drinking alcohol like a fish! I haven't said anything to her because it is her body, her baby, and her choice. But I can't help but be angry with her...
