While in some ways having a black president overcame some barriers, Obama in office has exposed prejudices that have been hidden below the surface for decades now. Not all who oppose him are bigoted, but I suspected a sizeable percentage are, given what we see in the way of attacks, 'humour', etc.

*** You can think what you wish. However, I and others have posted such links on these boards. In fact, I'm sure I've argued this with you before in the past. It's simply not worth my time to do so again.

Thanks for proving my point. No one generalized that all tea party folks or other conservatives are all bigots.

That's not the links you were originally talking about. Oh, well.

"...questionable associations and murky past."

LOL.

dexter, did you use the phrase 'murky past'?

Talk to me about Michele Bachmann, that major Tea Party player.

Yes, it's certainly alive and well over at Fox News. Check out the comments to this article about the rapper Common going to the White House..

Odd...not a single word about race in that Fox article, with the exception of comments made by Obama's close friend Rev. Wright.

Odd that you didn't see the racist comments. I can't post them here as they would be against TOS. It looks like Stormfront posters are on the Fox News site.

Took a second look...still didn't see any racist comments from the conservative critics.
