    Thumbs down Ralph Nader: "Barack Obama is trying to act white cuz whitey loves it"

    ..And apparently Ralph Nader is trying to act "white supremacist." Seriously, can Nader do any more to destroy what was once his good name? Is this guy on the board of any organizations, because enough is enough. He's helped put Bush into office twice, and now he's doing it again with McCain. Any groups who have this guy affiliated with them should be excoriated. What he just said is only borderline better than Don Imus. From ABC:

    Nader -- who launched his 5th presidential campaign in February -- says the only thing different about Obama from previous Democratic presidential candidates is his race. "I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos," Nader says. "Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."

    Asked if he thinks Obama is trying to "talk white," Nader said, "of course….The number one thing that a black American politician aspiring to the presidency should be is to candidly describe the plight of the poor, especially in the inner cities and the rural areas, and have a very detailed platform about how the poor is going to be defended by the law, is going to be protected by the law, and is going to be liberated by the law," Nader said. "Haven't heard a thing."

    Nader also says Obama wants to show he's not "another politically threatening African-American politician. He wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically he's coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it's corporate or whether it's simply oligarchic. And they love it. Whites just eat it up."

    You know, after the 5th time of nobody giving a fuck, you'd think rational people would retire the whole presidential aspiration thing.

    Nader is Arab American. I wonder if he ever try to specifically appeal to fellow Arab Americans. I bet most people are unaware of his Arab heritage.

    I don't even know what to think. This comment is coming from someone who seemingly downplays his heritage. His comments are null and void. Nader easily assimilated unlike other Arabs who don't look like him especially since the events of 9/11.
    I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep.

    Just imagine if Obama acted like MLK or Malcolm X. Somebody would shoot his head off.

    Look at how whites reacted to Rev Wright, with malice and outright terror. Average US whites can't stand to hear hard truths told in-your-face style by blacks, and try to marginalize and discredit those who do it.

    It does not matter what ethnic heritage Nader descends from because he is absolutely right. Not only that, but he has been a consistent critic of Israel, something he wouldn't do if he was trying to "assimilate" politically.

    Nader is an of Arab descent, he's a Lebanese Maronite Catholic.... and I don't know about 'most people' but I certainly knew he is Lebanese.

    He was born in Conneticut, and did not need to 'assimilate' as he is an American.

    I cannot imagine that he's been hiding his roots as he founded the 'Shafeek Nader Trust For The Community Interest'. The name Shafeek would sort of give away the Arab roots....

    Can't believe I actually voted for this emptynuts in the first election. Really admired his work at one time--now he's just a useless egomaniac. Don't worry, folks won't fall for this bullshit a second time...just ask Shrub.

    Thank you!!!

    People tend to forget that Obama is half-white when it's suits them. And being articulate and educated isn't just limited to white people, and being uneducated and ignorant isn't limited to black people. Nader is an idiot. Not that people didn't know that already.

    I remember Donkey Kong(am I admitting this out loud) I had the portable arcade game, along with Ms Pacman...

    I missed this thread..

    So if 'black' people annunciate our words properly, we're acting 'white'.. Isn't that the correct way?
