    ‘The Show Must Go On’….. the organizations who try to control here in North America CAN NOT change the PAST by creating issuses and making demands based on these irrelevant issuses…..

    This is analogous to the situation that existed before you all were here on Earth. The only difference is that instead of an unknown source abusing you when you were not following their plan….. today if you are not humane, it will effect how you will evolve!

    Pat is making up for lost time, I wish he had let the other one hang around, take time to go back and check it out.

    Racism is always there, it is in every nation, country, and state, because it appeals to the basic hates and fears that humans have (fear turns to hate because if you fear something you quickly come to hate it).

    The embers of racism lie there smoldering, waiting for someone to blow on them so that can (once again) burst into flame.

    And, as we all know, Fox Blows.

    The reason racism is always there, in every nation, country and state, is because it is instinctive in man. What you need to do now is try to understand why it is instinctive to begin with……

    It’s not instinctive, it’s taught.

    How is the Kool Ade, Pat?

    Try to watch outside the alphabet MSMs and the NY Times once in a while you may get a whole story to “comment” on.

    OOPS! I forgot, it is much more comfortable inside the beltway or on Manhattan Island since reality is not in great supply. Also pay is better for your tripe than in “fly over country.”

    Looks like none of you finger pointers actually did your own due diligence and watched her whole presentation. For the lazy I’ll summarize – racism is deployed by the “haves” as a weapon in class warfare. No, halfabug, the Dems aren’t behind “most” of it but they do hold their own.

    Human beings are born with only two instinctive fears… the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises! All other blame falls on the earliest role models… whoever they might be!

    Yeah, you tell him Bill, he’s only a Nationally Syndicated Pulitzer-Prize Winning cartoonist, and you’re a…a….

    Never mind.

    It is most definitely taught, which means it can also be forgotten.

    Again yawn, these strips say far more about cartoonist Pat then it does about who he is targeting. Hey Pat can you write a strip without all the radical left wing hate spin? There are only four suits in a deck and the race card has been played by the loony left only 7-10 times now. From the faking of hearing the “N”word to out right finger pointing it is getting very old and sad. Of course the saddest part is people like race baiting Al Sharptounge and many more like him are the real racist in today. Let me bring up one more point. Clinton was said to be the “1st” black Prez. Yet look at how many people of color he hired and what not. And when a minority got hired in Clinton’s camp or Obama’s camp. It was hailed as a true triumph. When W hired someone race was not even on the bio of the person. Seriosly I did not know Rice was and Powell were black until I saw a picture. But I sure knew that that judge was a Latino. And I would bet dollars to donuts W hired more “minorities” then Clinton.

    I find it extremely disheartening that race should be such an issue at this point in our history. Is racism so woven into the fabric of American life? How can we get beyond this terrible situation?

    Don’t the Pulitzer Prize and national syndication go hand in hand with the main stream media that Bill was critical of? I really don’t see how that presents any type of counter argument…

    Historically, both republicans and democrats have shown neither regret nor shame in using racism as a political weapon. Only the true partisans will claim otherwise.

    “Who taught Revs Sharpton and Jackson?”

    The KKK, next question.

    What is the point of this cartoon? Racism is in the news? Wasn’t it Obama who told Sherrod to quit her position immediately without gathering all of the facts? Does this strip have to do with something other than Sherrod? Is this strip about the NAACP calling the Tea Party a bunch of “racists”?

    Is everyone in this country just blindly (and blandly) throwing a deck of race cards in the air and calling it a card game?
