“It's funny with the Arizona shooting all pundits were traveling to gauge what President Obama was going to say and when the speech was given everyone was blown away...I will tell all let's see what is said this evening and everyone can contribute their two cents in the morning.”

“@Jilrita thank you and for all the others I don't know what generation you are from but the book was not on my reading list in high school, college, or graduate school. I appreciate the pundits of individuals who are so fast to judge someone AND for your information there were numerous books by that title (yes I did look it up), however I wanted to make sure I got the right one.”

“WHAT?!!

What planet do you live on? You can't get out of high school without that book being on a compulsory reading list...even if you are from somewhere else in the world, this is an old, international must read. Look up the author yourself! Geesh, talk about people who don't want to "work"...”

“Pardon my confusion, doesn't the President of the United States SUPPOSE to deliver a speech that is smart, articulate, and oratorical. We had the opposite and it became embarrassing to hear him speak..smh...so now Rush is supporting inarticulate, dumb down speeches, that sounds like an individual we all know and love (sarcastic) who won't go away, so now the 2012 election cycle has begun...”

“And someone, like President Obama who can rise to such an occasion, without missing a beat is such a refreshing change of pace to the former Commander in Chief and the alternatives in the GOP pool. I, myself am proud of our President and ALL true "Patriots" of this nation should be as well.”

“So ignorant.....a good education is having the same resources and opportunities within the education whether it be in a black or white neighborhood. Take a honest assessment regarding predominately white and black schools which school is more likely to have the better resources??? The key is having parents being active in their children education.”

“This comment bothers me on some many levels...due to the high level of ignorance in the comment. Are you saying that ALL Black and Hispanic kids take the school bus?”

JStading on Jan 13, 2011 at 18:48:26

“Stop picking emotional arguments for no reason.  "Are you saying that ALL Black and Hispanic kids take the school bus?"  No, he's saying "school buses are mostly black and hispanic kids."  Guess what? It was the same at my high school too.  Why? Because black and Hispanic kids tend to come from poorer families who in turn don't buy them cars when they hit 16.”

“Given that CarolinaYankee specifically used the word "mostly", I would say no, that's not what CY is saying...”

“What I AM saying is my husband and I were behind a school bus the other day here in S.C. and NOT 1 white child was on it as they were stopping to let them off the bus. I asked my neighbor why, when the bus goes right past our house, why doesn't her kids take it, afterall they are paying taxes for it. She told me they never took the bus the neighbors take turns driving the kids to school. BTW I said mostly black and hispanic kids, never used the word all anywhere in my statement. I took the bus to school my Mommy did not drive me. Not an ignorant statement, come on down and see for yourselves anytime. ”

“As an African American female, I expect the government to give me nothing but a fair opportunity to get a job that I am qualified for. What is the purpose of checking off a racial box when completing an application, shouldn't your resume speak for itself? It is a beautiful thing to have a bi-racial man in the WH, BUT have you noticed this same articulated man is being torn down everyday for ALL DIRECTIONS, was the treatment of other Presidents this grotesque?

Also, the fact you put to "make your dream come true yourself, legally" shows your frame of thinking. Let me guess become pro athletes, entertainers, etc. Regardless of what the media what to present when it comes to African Americans there are millions that go to work each and everyday proudly trying to make their way in the world, but GOSH DARN a little thing called institutionalized racism in corporate America is alive and well!! You ever saw the movie, the Watermelon Man or read the book "Black Like Me" it would be a real eye opener!!

Peace & Blessings”
