GUEST,Hummer BS: Talkin White. Talkin Black (89* d) RE: BS: Talkin White. Talkin Black 26 Jun 08

Also, Nader himself wouldn't be such an easy target for African Americans and the neo-liberals if he weren't Arab American. Tune into the rabidly anti-Arab and anti-Muslim cable news programs any night of the week, and you will see what all the fuss is about.

Why are Obama and his supporters so rabidly anti-Arab and anti-Muslim?
Because they fear their candidate being associated with the American Muslim community--especially the Black Muslim community--in any way.

Why would that be? Easy answer. Widespread xenophobia and religious bigotry among Americans (like the neo-liberals supporting Obama) against Arab Americans and the American Muslim community.

They fear that Obama being associated with either community would result in him losing the election.

Because he is African American?

Hell no.

Because he might be Muslim. That is a far greater sin to Americans nowadays, than being African American.

So is that bigotry and intolerance rooted in race or religion or ethnic origin or what?

Does Obama stand up for Arab Americans and the Muslim community, which any US president damn well ought to do, and denounce that sort of intolerance and bigotry?


Instead, he is exploiting it, and hoping he can spin his personal narrative history in a way that spins away from the Muslim community completely.

At the expense of the community that Nader is, by ethnic origin, a member of--but I guess Obama dissing Nader's community doesn't count.
