I'm so happy that Obama won simply because its going to shut these people up after they realize there isnt going to be a redistirbution of wealth and welfare hand out checks so everyone can stop working (you must be a moron if you really think this), he isnt going to ban any religions, and he isnt the antichrist. These people are finally being put in their place, and rightly so.

Oh yeah, and he is anti-irsael but has a Rahm Emanuel, a Jew who supports isreal as a top position.

Oh yeah, and he's a muslim.

Forgot, and also an A-rab.

Oh, hes also black.

Oh, and a socialist.

Oh, and he went to terrorist madrassas as a child.

Oh, and he also learned to make bombs will Ayres at age 8.

oh, and these people who actually think this are full of you know what.

Of course, it would be hilarious if it turned out he actually was the Anti-Christ.

I really wish Obama's victory speech on election night had started with "Yes, I am a secret Muslim."

Right now I am told by people I know living in the South that there are those who think Obama will force abortions, ban Christianity, and is literally the Anti-Christ.

It's like living in a Mel Brooks movie.
According to my sister-in-law; and she knows all about the Anti Christ because she told me she does, the Anti Christ will come from Rome.:devil:

According to the local wing nuts Obama is actually 50% white, 6% black and 44% Arab.

Saturday Night Live needs to straighten this all out.

I know the anti-christ, he lives in Indiana.

"Arab" isn't even a race. That's like saying he's 50% white, 6% black and 44% European. :uhh:

It's just mind boggling how ignorant some Americans are.

Arab is a race in the sense of a people that share a common geneological and cultural origin.

Black or white isn't a race.

That's an ethnic group.

And Kenyan's aren't Middle Eastern anyway.

There are idiots in the US that equate religious persuasion with ethnicity, and there is no way to combat that level of ignorance.

To make it worse these nutz are saying Obama will support Iran because he is Arab. I tell them Iranians are Persians, but it just bounces off their thick skulls.

No, race is different from ethnic groups. Races are caucasian (white), black and Asian, with sub-classifications. It's more biological classification. The US Census recognizes four basic racial groups, as they consider American natives and Eskimos as a racial class. Correction, they also added Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and "some other race", for people that are mixed and not sure what they are. Races really are losing their distinctions.

Hispanic for example is not a race, it's an ethnic group, they are white as a race.

They seem to be a mixed bag, with some apparently educated leadership.. This must be going on in other places. Many newspapers have online versions with space for comments.

The irony is that Persians don't really like Arabs.

The funny thing is that they are probably the same fringe loons that thought Bush was the AntiChrist. Probably a bit closer to truth on that count.

I think thats the difference between the biological defn of a race, to be equivalent to a breed in dogs, ie. same species but different physical characterstics and the anthropological defn of a shared origin + culture.

I thought we weren't supposed to use the biological race defn anymore because it's racist!

But I do think it's great that there is such a versatile man in the whitehouse.
He's a protestant muslim, pro-persian arab, comminist facist and a CIA/Isreali/Al Queda/Black-Panther agent all at the same time!

That's your opinion and the opinion of the US Census Bureau, but many people, including prominent anthropologists, would disagree with you. Many people consider Native Americans, Australian Aborigines, and others groups as separate races.

It's more biological classification. The US Census recognizes four basic racial groups, as they consider American natives and Eskimos as a racial class. Correction, they also added Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and "some other race", for people that are mixed and not sure what they are. Races really are losing their distinctions.
Unlike, say, species, race is not a biological category that has clear-cut divisions. Race is like the colors of the spectrum of light. There is no clear cut division in the length of blue light waves and green light waves, or green and yellow light waves. Most people think that the most green light is at around 510 nm, but someone else might think it is, say, 509 nm. Race is the same way.


Hispanic for example is not a race, it's an ethnic group, they are white as a race.
Again, your opinion. I would consider most hispanics as being mestizos, part white, part Native American.
