I guess this is where I am in the middle and piss off both sides of the isle. I do not believe that Biden's comment was racist. I believe it was meant to compliment Obama, but the way it came out was open for wide interpretation. However, I believe Biden's comments, although they should not be, are far more open to that interpretation then what Lott said.

What Lott said was nothing more then buttering a retiring (and soon to pass away) old man who had served in Congress. If honoring this man in a farewell manner was a problem, why did so many democrats attend? Isn't their attendance and support of this man being honored non-verbal communication of supporting a "racist"? I never liked Strom Thurmond, but Lott's comment then, as well as Biden's now are being taken way out of context.

As far as Julian Bond and Jesse Jackson, I agree they are both racist and opportunist. However, I do not feel that way about Al Sharpton. I disagree with Sharpton 90 percent of the time and he has done and supported things that did not put him in a good light, but I can say that about most people. Overall, the man does attempt to build a bridge between white and black America. Many of the ethnic leaders throughout New York, as well as the country respect and like Al Sharpton. They may not agree with his positions, but they do believe he wants racism to be acknowledged, addressed and educated from all sides.

The NAACP has done wonderful things to advance and integrate minorities into American the mainstream. Past and Present leadership elected and appointed in the NAACP has run the gambit from some being moderates, to activists to racist themselves. However, we could make that same analogy with almost any organization. I disagree with the NAACP's position in supporting "Quotas". However, I do agree with Affirmative Action plans that allow for equality or at least the presence of equality. We are never going to achieve equality in America, because many small business are family owned and therefore nepotism is in place to pass the business threw family hands. That is not a bad thing, that is a good thing, as it keeps those small businesses going. Where I don’t like to see nepotism and cronyism is in politics. It exists equally among both controlling parties. Examples: Father and son Gore, both served in Congress as well as the Bush's, two President's and Governor, and let us not forget the Kennedy's. The list is endless.

However, in big business which is more ambiguous and in most cases concerned with Stock Holders; merit versus nepotism and/or cronyism should become the primary focus. You want someone who leads, wins, and/or makes you money. I use the NFL as the example of how Affirmative Action plans can be a positive. Lovie Smith is a product of the NFL's fairly new policy that at least one minority candidate must be interviewed whenever there is a head coaching vacancy. The policy does not set a quota for a certain number of head coaches, only that viable minority candidates be interviewed. Now the Bears are in the Super Bowl and most NFL experts, as well as fans give Lovie a large part of that credit. Both Lovie and Jerry Angelo have admitted that without the NFL’s Affirmative Action Guidelines Lovie more then likely would not have been interviewed.

For me everything is about balance. We have a history of racism and sexism that I believe we have mostly overcome. However, to ensure that I do not believe quota’s work, but that fair rules of considering ALL qualified candidates does assist in evening out the playing field.

Now if we can just get the nepotism and cronyism out of politics - lol.

Oh I'm sorry if I impugned that gay Republican congressman by saying he wanted to pry the pants off little boys. I meant to say post pubescent teenage boys. Guess his crusty old ass had a hankering for a supertwink, young shaved thing.

Hey Akron, love to slide the pants off ya studd .........

So am I to assume that since you guys won't leave Lott alone in this that he is to blame for Bidens racist remarks or even that stupid Da in the Duke case taking black people for fools.
