    Does Barack Obama hate white people?

    A lot of people who are suffering from Hurricane Sandy are white people and all Barack Obama did was visit for a photo op and then go back to campaigning.  It's been two weeks and a lot of people are still homeless or don't have power.

    I can't answer that question, don't know who would but I will say, now he knows what Bush felt like in Katrina.  Maybe Kanye West would like to add his two cents.

      Cassie you asked if I felt the same way about Kanye West's comment on Bush ... absolutely.  How stupidly he acted with Taylor Swift at the award program ... absolutely.  With me, it is not about black/white, it is about wrong/right.

      I didn't mean TS incident.  I meant  Katrina when Kanye said Bush hates black people live/air during Red Cross to raise money for victims. Your question can only be answered by Obama himself. Just wish people would stop separating & stereotyping.

    I don't think he hates white people.  I think voicing comments like this alienate people who might vote for Romney.  Rather than see Obama or Romney, I would want resources that could get my life back to normal.

    He does not hate White people.  He hates successful people who made their way on their own.  He simply a classic stateist who thinks the gov't can decide what is best for you better than you can.   He himself described Saul Alinsky as one of the people who greatly influenced him.  Don't kid yourself, there are plenty of those in both political parties. But there are a few Republicans who still represent the constitutional views of limited Gov't. 

    Living here in NY among the chaos of the storm, it is amazing how quickly President Bush was presented as not caring about minorities because of the incompetence of FEMA during Katrina.  Today the same thing is happening in predominately white area's and no such coverage in the media.  The truth is FEMA, along with all Federal agencies are simply useless regardless of who is in the white house.  That is the nature of Gov't.  Yet it does reflect the self inflicted corruption of the media.

      Better question.  Why do so many white people hate Obama?

      Considering a much higher % of whites voted for Obama than Blacks did for Romney that questions seems lopsided.

      I think that is why Romney wanted to disband FEMA.  The organization is probably top heavy.  Yes I remember the claims against Bush.   There should be strategic planning that allows resources to get to victims quickly ... esp when u no its coming

      He did not want to disband FEMA totally.  That was taken out of context.  Although that wouldn't be a bad idea. They are a nice idea like most gov't programs.  But in reality they're just another beurocracy.

      Robephiles, good question indeed!   President Obama represents someone new i.e. an outsider beyond the Caucasian male presidential hegemony which existed since George Washington!

      He represents the views of the stateist. It's the left that keeps categorizing people by race, creed, gender and whatever else they can come up with.  If they can't classify people that way they can't pit people against eachother for votes.

    Not likely. First of all his mother was white as well as his grand-parents. Secondly  Gov. Christie of NJ couldn't praise the president enough for helping to cut through red tape for FEMA to give assistance.
    I also do not believe he hates successful people either. Some of his best friends are rich! LOL!

    I guess you can also ask if Obama hates his grandparents who are white, if he hates his mother who is white and if he hates himself who is half white. You can also ask if Mitt Romney hates black, Latinos and poor people. But those would be stupid questions don't you think? Is it your intention to stir up racial hatred by smearing the President of the United States?

      Well if that's what you think then you must have had the same thought when Kanye West said that Bush hates black people after Katrina.

    The President is not my first choice either, however he does not hate white people. He did not go to visit the areas for a photo op, he went there to meet with the community leaders and see things for himself. All the while, even Gov. Christie attests to it, the President made himself and every possible resource available to him and asked repeatedly about specific needs.

    None of the Presidents have ever had the ability to flip a switch and turn people's power on when there are trees, buildings, etc. on top of the electric infrastructure such as wires and downed poles. These things take time unfortunately, and things are improving slowly but surely as far as getting power back on. Gas rationing ends tomorrow.

    There are people going in from other states to aid residents in any way they can. As for those who are homeless, they may be able to get aid from the Red Cross, United Way, and a variety of other charities and organizations such as local, state, and federal levels.

    wow. one of these days you're going to hit your head real hard and get your senses back. is there anything about Obama you don't hate. you're freaking hilarious.of course, like i told you a while back, Mr. Obama was going to win again and i was right. relax, try backing your president even though he is black and you might be a happier person.

      When revamping, the Republican Party should seriously consider how to deal with party members who spurt racist innuendo all over social media.  Minorities are becoming the majority.  That has a great impact on relations.  It should not be either or.

    Are you serious?? It concerns me greatly that the word "hate" has recently taken center stage. No wonder our nation is in trouble!
