    The evidence is in. The bulk of race or ethnicity related threads are initiated by the righties. I searched for various key words and looked at only the first page of the search results. (I would have provided the links to the search results, but I think those links fail rather quickly. At any rate, you can do the same searches. Do "Search Titles Only.")

    I searched for the word "Muslim":

    - Muslim Threats force out disabled teacher with dog. cupofjoe1962
    - McCain is a Muslim. Wildo7
    - Obama backed Muslim extremist cousin in Kenya. FreeTedWilliams
    - Muslim riots in France turn barbaric. Real World
    - Muslim Award. Harry Boy
    - Muslim Fascists--God--Mary--Jesus. Harry Boy
    - Radical Muslim gets job at Andrews AFB. FreeTedWilliams
    - A Muslim 'Mafia'? patsfan13
    - Another Scumbag Muslim Heard From. QuiGon

    I searched for the word "race":

    - This thread. Patters
    - Here Comes The Race Card. Harry Boy
    - Imus in trouble again for race comments. cupofjoe1962
    - Obama Wouldn't Be Where He Is But For Race. a.paul
    - BOOK: WRONG ON RACE ... The Democratic Party's Buried Past. F.B.N.
    - Bronx students discuss Obama's race speech. weswelker#83
    - Supreme Court Throws out Death Row Verdict Race and issue. GJAJ15
    - More KKKlinton Race Baiting. QuiGon
    - Barack Obama's Race Problem: White Liberals. F.B.N.
    - Media Reporting and Race. Real World
    - Race. wistahpatsfan
    - Race Riot. Harry Boy

    I also searched for "black," "racist," "homosexual," "gays," and got similar results.

    Knowing that I posted a handful of threads, I also searched for Christians, religion, and even Cosby, as well as several other terms that are often divisive. It certainly appears that the righties see the world as us vs. them. It's the righties who bring race and ethnicity into the conversation, and we can expect them to do the same in the General Election. Obama's right on this one.

    Don't forget my thread about Obama/Race was quoting the founder of BET saying it.

    Jesus, I thought my name would be in all of them but it was only in three of them, does that mean I'm not a racist---:p

    Not being afraid to discuss issues in the world around us does not equal "playing the race card". Seems to me Obama is playing the race card, he's the one who said "he's black"; never heard McCain say that.

    Instead of saying "righties or republicans" can't we just call them "THEY"?:D

    Another one? It's the one you listed "Obama wouldn't be where he were...."

    I copied the title directly from the title of the news story.

    Well, my point is, Obama is right when he says that the right will bring up his race. Not directly, of course. Righties are clever. I will give them that.

    Talking about "race" is a little different than what you just said.

    I don't think he's right. But he's now called Republicans racists. He is disgusting. Talk about name calling. F*ck you, Obama.

    The right? you mean "they", "them" kinda righties? Yes "they" are very, very clever.

    We often forget the rightie campaign in the 1990's that's sole purpose was to equate Democrats as liberals in the minds of all Americans. It may have been one of the most blatantly unethical efforts in the history of American politics by either of the 2 parties. This is a known fact that "they" have admitted to.

    They plan called for replublicans to use the word "liberal" in place of democrat whenever they refered to anything or anyone from the democratic party no matter if they were moderate (the VAST majority of all democrats) or liberal.

    Wow, someone call CNN. How could no one on TV ever think of this. Just type in two generic words & determine, according to the search results of a Patsfan.com political forum, that right leaning individuals will bring up the race card. Wow, that is some indepth analysis for sure. :rolleyes:

    I wonder what comes up when Blonde versus Brunette is typed in the ladies lounge? :rocker:

    I will vote now and forever--redhead. Firecrotch. From the dusky almost brunette to the bright ginger of Scotland...redheads.

    Actually, I think it was more in the '80s, and the liberals did a horrible job of fighting back. They allowed the right to define liberals in the most dishonest terms.

    Let's see...are you trying to shrug this off as either unimportant or it figures as in "there you go..."?

    Because to find that republican/conservatives bring up the race issue far more than democrats/liberals is very, very noteworthy.

    I think we should definately continue to keep tabs on this very issue. Would you mind Patters?

    Great...another liberal who's going to use race to try and beat "righties" with.

    Wow. He searched and posted some threads that say "race" in them. For instance--the one of mine there? It was quoting a black gentleman who said Obama was getting an advantage. Since this is the same man who founded BET and owns an NBA team, I thought it was interesting.

    Screw you if you don't think that's newsworthy, or if you think it's something to club others with.

    But here's a hint: that attitude right there that you showed--it's one of the biggest reasons "race" is still a problem in this country.

    No, it was during that period that liberals were at their most dishonest and most public.

    Liberals have defined themselves, over and over and over--from you trying to have two stances on each issue to Obama moving people out of picture range so as to make up a good balance for the camera.
