Speaking of racism...


This is a political flyer that Republicans were distributing in New York leading up to the elections. Please take note of the colour of the man's hand. Then, note the colour of the woman's face. This ad is essentially preying on the stereotypes of the violent black man and the fragile, defenceless white woman. So, according to this flyer, if the Democrats win, black men are going to start kidnapping and maybe even raping white women everywhere? Hmmm.... they'd need a few centuries to catch up with the number of black women raped by white men though...

Steups. I does real vex when I see dese things, you know. Not only is it implying the violence against the white population, but also suggesting that the pretty green-eyed folk will have to tolerate n****s making decisions on their behalf--the Caucasian way of life is no more!. Real smooth, Republicans, real smooth. An ad campaign you can be proud of.

Which candidate in particular brought out this flyer?

Did you hear about Jim Webb in Virginia with the misogynistic comments? Ah nex' bamsee-hole.

Last week, all the trash-talking ads had many quotes from him. I found this site:

Granted, it's highly biased, but you get the picture that this man has absolutely no regard or respect for the opposite sex. He's been reputed to have said that the armed forces were a horny woman's dream. Charming dude, ent? (innit--sorry, it popped into my head and couldn't resist)

Dolli, according to their flyer, they're more concerned with the Caucasians being corrupted--"Our values will be destroyed!"

Republicans have historically had no regard for any minority groups, regardless of what physical traits they carry--fair or dark skin, light or dark eyes, straight or curly hair. Once you're not white, you're black, therefore, not their priority. But, of course, these are just generalisations. Undoubtedly, there are exceptions.

Anyone knows what were the "family values" that were being threatened by the flyer? It sounds gay rights-ish.

Girl in trinidad people say that racialism exist but Ihave never had any experiences... but internationally it is seen even in the media.. I think they should have rethought that add because from the time I saw it with out reading i saw the colour difference in the hand and the face.

Girl, I think racism in Trinidad is different from most countries. Racism in Trinidad exists in terms like "high colour" and "straight hair". In other countries it tends to be "white" and "others". Even among white people, where we tend to see one race they themselves see subdivisions into "less" and "more" white.

I'm sorry, I guess in Rebuplicans views war is within their moral values. It serve Bush damn right. The people have spoken!I would be more worried with not being able to take a dump in privacy than about losing "values". NEWSFLASH I think the U.S is a little to far along to worry about "values" anymore

This comes across as exactly like what's been said, black man preying on/silencing white woman... the type of stereotype that many many Americans believe in. They were quite blatant to zero in on those folks fears, it's truly the kind of support & understanding they look for in their politicians.

They really don't know..........In that ad that white lady with green eyes COULD be ah sistah who's passing! De joke would be on them. Wha Hots does seh? TONAIRE!
