In the video below, Dr. Boyce Watkins and Yvette Carnell discuss the recent Tea Party website that said that President Obama was like a skunk because he’s “half-white, half-black and everything he does stinks.” 

Was this racist?  Yes, we think so.   Our video is below:

    We’re screwed and our children will be double screwed!
    For those of you who still reside in fantasy-land when it comes to this white-supremacist dominant Society, and it’s fictitious political schemes.

    If you haven’t watched the first season of ‘Boss’ on Starz..or the first and second seasons of ‘Boardwalk Empire’. These political figures typify exactly how our political spectrum works and the type of people in political office. That goes for nearly all politicians including your favored ‘Obama’! Watch these Television episodes so that you can get a clearer view of what we are dealing with! Please watch them and open your eyes! Maybe you will eventually figure out that both political parties are playing a sort of ‘Good cop’/Bad cop scenario on ‘we the people’!
    One side pretends to be on our side and the other pretends to be totally against the good of the nation and only serving the rich. Well understand that both sides are serving the elite rich and are putting on an elaborate con to fool the masses!
    Once you grasp this fact, you might then see that the things they say in the corrupt elite-owned media is only intended to affect the public and it is done to influence our thoughts about politics and it tries to retain a confirmation that democracy is working when all evidence proves that it truly isn’t! The elite are fondling us and most can’t recognize that we’re getting screwed in every possible way imaginable! They already know that Obama is the chose one to serve the next term so they are actually doing every thing suggested to them to make sure he does. It that means trying to anger the populace into feeling emotional towards the things the say about Obama then so be it! It’s all part of their con people!

    We are overwhelmed by the machinations of these lying scoundrels and their service to the elite! Yes that means that Obama probably [knew] they were going to use the ‘skunk’ dribble before they put it out there! At this late date it doesn’t matter who is in political office. The people have been, and will continue to be screwed royally!

  17. I’m an independent entrepreneur….I ‘m a professional photographer, videographer, a computer consultant and a reborn again Christian…welll over 19 years….99% of my customers are Blacks…….I’m very successful… I consider myself a bless person…..We must let go of this slave mentality…Majority of us Blacks are still slaves only different now we are being paid a few cents…..We have assimilated too much of this White man cultural ways. We must organized ourselves just like Black Wall Street of Tulsa, OK did…We must develop our own Financial institutions and keep all of our money in our own communities…Patronize Black businesses only….Don’t buy any products and services from that White man.. ……Money is the reasons a lot of us depend on that White devil…And he isn’t giving up much of it to Blacks…Stop depending on getting anything from politicians because majority of them are White and corrupt…and the majority of white politicians are prejudice….We must free ourselves from this dependency mentality….I don’t expect anything from the White man but just leave me alone……I’m just as happy as they are about not living around me ……………

  18. The Tea Party comparing President Obama to skunk is a manifestation of their insecurity becoming diabolical because the manner in which Barack wears black excellence is dazzling. His being half black and half white would be engendering if his deportment was more European and his social extraversions as well as his recreational pursuits were more Caucasian. The fact that you see Barack at college basketball games one day and giving a state of the economy address the next repersents the equalibrium of black culture and black intellect. So he has become Jackie Robinson and W.E.B. Dubois with a Paul Robeson, James Earl Jones savoir faire. It is the countenance of black “Charislectualism” that frightens them. The perfect fusion of charisma and intellectualism through blackness.

    My homie…..love this brother

  20. Henry Duren

    They all working together, im convinced. To say some ignorant stuff like that is politcal suicide. They putting obama over like the heel wrestlers in the WWE do for the popular wrestlers( peoples choice)

  21. Ron Gordon

    Unconscious racism is just as dangerous as outright racism! I see no critical difference. The ad, in my humble opinion, appeals to the lowest common denominator in human comprehension. People who virulently “hate Obama” speak in coded language and those who understand that….get it.

  22. Your space for information is much to important to give more publicity to ignorance. This is what they want and it fosters a type of complicity in giving voice to these insults free of charge. This is what they want .They speak in the tongues of men and of …. language and have no love in them, They sound like clanging brass or a noise-making cymbal. … which the angels have, and yet are destitute of love, and have nothing.

  23. My prediction is GOP and TEA Party are finished-done. Let’s prepare for Obama re-election in 2012. American people are now for Obama following national wide union unrests. American people have learned – the hard way. Before November 2010 elections, I warned friends who had joined TEA Party as follows: “.. Okay rejoice now; but you will be Soooorrie if you vote republican. …Republicans hate old and white women in power, poor Whites, Blacks and other racial minorities. ….Republicans love big insurance and companies..They get money from them…wait after electing them. Republicans will dump you as trash.” They did not listen to me. Indeed I met a few friends who had joined the TEA Party picketing pro-Unions at Wisconsin capital. I asked them if they remembered what I had written. They now regret voting republican. They are now pushing to recall Governor Walker and other elected republicans. Governor Walkers and his fellow republicans stripped all workers union rights. Many Wisconsinites who had joined the TEA Party are now crying – telling me it was ignorance. “We did not know it would be that bad electing Walker and republicans.” Ignorance! No. These are teachers, firefighters, police, iron-workers, nurses, research scientists, professors, accountants, engineers, social professionals, mechanists, computer programmers, bus drivers, etc. These people cannot say it was ignorance to vote republican. As educated people they should have known how republicans behave. Republicans always want to make others slaves. Indeed that is what happened in Wisconsin. People should have read what President Obama had accomplished during his first 2 years in office. President Obama had cut taxes for middle and low income; stopped corruption at Wall Street and in Banks; established funds for small business to borrow finance or retool their operations and most important passed health care law ensuring every American had access to preventive medical services. I have suggestion for American of all races – Join TEAMOBAMA and we will all be saved. Let’s prepare re-electing Obama in 2012.

    Racism? What racism? Obama called himself a “mongrel”, and his being bi-racial is a fact. If he can paint the GOP as stinking up nearly everything, turnabout is surely fair play.

    I guess it will never end ever. Someone good may have to walk down from heaven and fix this. We are all people, we all bleed if you cut us. The color of a person’s skin should never matter in any situation. There are racists in all political organizations. It appears that there will always be ignorant people no matter how well educated they think they are. Nothing seems to help. I am 66 years old and nothing has really changed in a big way.

  26. theprovider

    TO Playrighter your comments also have a “foul” oder, and the republican party are the real skunks that are only concerned with your calculated failure of the president.

  27. nojokester

    The GROUP of people spewing this type of crap ;have treated ‘people of color ‘ the same , Before 1964 Civil Rights we were Non -Humans , less than they . Why would it be expected for a LAW to change ‘their ‘ beliefs.

  28. GOPers and TEA Partiers and FoxNews are frustrated their candidates have eliminated themselves by exposing one another’s evil past and present. It started with Herman Cain – boy he was coming strong – but we found he is adulterer, women groper, harasser and above all racist. Then came Romney. He was flying high in polls – but we found Romney has refused to release his income tax returns fearing people will find him corrupt. Romney also is a Mormon who believes Blacks are cursed from Cain (Adam and Eve). Perry exposed himself as racist – having a stone at his house with foul word. Perry is also a drunk and mama boy-brain freeze. No- Just dumb. Perry has been disqualified as candidate in Iowa. Then came Newt Gingrich only to find him the most evil person on this planet-adulterer, inhuman towards his wife and kids, racist and corrupt. Newt has been disqualified as candidate in his own home state. We trusted Ron Paul. Boy- we found him a KKK operative and gets campaign money from them. Bachmann is corrupt and is looking to be first lady. We don’t know who is going to marry her in the WH. The rest of GOP candidates are not worthy mentioning. Seniors are running away from Republicans after Paul Ryan came up with his stupid Ryan-care. Ryan-Care kills all seniors who exhaust $5000 in medical bills. Ryan-Care is for insurance profits. As whole American people are smarter now than in 2010 when they fell for TEA Party lies. No more. President Obama has ended the war in Iraq as he promised -frustrating GOPers and TEA Partiers more. We have now Affordable Health care law enabling 31mi poor Americans to have insurance. President Obama is also fighting for tax cut for low and middle income people. As of today Republicans don’t have a viable candidate. All are corrupt, racists and adulterers. Let’s vote for President Obama and Democrats in November 2012.

  29. O.K. WizardG I get what we should not do, what should we do.
