    So, it's not acceptable to call someone articulate?


    This political-correct, afri-mexi-hispa-euro-ruso-china-japa-merican thing is really starting to get on my nerves.

    Well, Mr. President called Mr. Obama 'articulate' the other day. Now guess who is in a tissy about it?

    I'm pretty sure it was Bush.

    Whoever it was got attacked because apparently calling one guy articulate was a slam against the rest of his "people*".

    I wonder if there would have been such a fuss if the political alignments had been reversed....

    *quotation marks were not used to imply that said group is above or below other groups.

    Nope, it was Biden who said it.. he said Obama was "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."

    Of course, he's a democrat, so it's no big deal.

    I gotcha..

    I wonder if we're seeing W's sense of humor here.. he's being asked about an obama presidency, and he replies with a compliment about him being articulate.. which is a nice way of saying he has zero experience and not worth consideration as a presidential contender this early in his career..

    Now you see, if someone said "you people" to me in an argument, I would assume they were talking about my dead sparrow baby collecting and trading club.

    But SOME people think your talking about their , uh, race?

    I'll have to remember that next time I want some caucasion delivered instead of chinese.

    But Thai always tastes best if eaten in 30 minutes or less.

    Yes, it's been a long day folks!:eek1:

    On a side note, if a black man blends into white "society" we now call them articulate?
    But if a white man blends into black "culture" he is called a wigger?

    I am sick of the demands for equality, when no one can drop the most basic element.
    Skin color.

    I pity da fool that tries to call a black man a "scholar"

    Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

    Aside from anti-2nd amendment control freaks, that is the only other thing that will get me real riled up.
