    Does it matter? We should all strive to be better people regardless of what "the left" or "the right" does. If people who do not make this distinction are wrong, then they are wrong regardless of their political bent.

    From the OP:

    "Revenge against who? I must know. My mind keeps turning over and over to try and figure it out; the only thing I keep coming back to is 'white people.'

    You and Walter call this "racism"... but what Obama said(which is far worse) is not "racism", but "prejudice"?

    an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.
    unreasonable feelings, opinions, or attitudes, especially of a hostile nature, regarding a racial, religious, or national group.
    Both of these definitions of prejudice point to the fact that that statement is prejudice. It would be ignorant, for sure, but whether or not you are also racist depends on whether or not you think this way of blacks because you believe there is some inherent difference between blacks and other races because of their racial characteristics.

    Then kindly show me where the OP that you have accused of racism said anything about racial characteristics or intellectual superiority?

    I don't think I ever accused the OP of racism. If I did, Grassroots, I apologize.

    I'm out. This is pointless. Obama didn't pen about his racism, he was never there for over 20 years when Rev Wright shrieked his racism, it really didn't happen when he called for Latinos to punish their enemies, and nothing of his admitted racist mentors ever sunk in and stuck.

    Clearly, we are all just prejudice and should strive to be better people, because that is the issue the OP casually queried, regarding whether it could be a racially motivated statement. Wow...no precedence for him to make that query whatsoever.
    The time for just talk is done. Active recruiting of friends, relatives, co-workers and congregations is now critical. Be the Indy Voter making the difference. 7,501 groups formed. 3.5 million FB. Take back your schools, communities and country.http://www.freedomworks.org/

    Yet social and economic alchemists on the progressive left press on, arrogantly believing they, despite overwhelming historical and real time evidence to the contrary..can turn collectivist lead into utopian gold - Webrockk

    You may not have personally called it racism...but there is no doubt that you have defended Walter for doing so!

    It's all good though...everyone is entitled to their opinion!

    I defended Walter when you called him a troll if I recall.

    Which you claimed was "calling him out" if I recall.

    What was he "calling him out" on?

    You don't think calling someone a racist for simply asking a question is intended to piss them off?

    I'm not sure where Walter called GRC a racist. He said that the question of the "revenge" statement being racially charged was a "dumbass" remark, and I believe that's what he was calling him out on.
