    OK SANDRA, I LOVE YOU AND ALL BUT YOU LIKE TO TYPE TO HEAR YOURSELF TALK. LOL. NO BLACK FACES???? SO I GUESS THE WHOLE SEGMENT ON THE ELDERLY COUPLE IN OHIO WITH THE RETIRED MAN WHO HAD TO GO BACK TO WORK AT WALMART CAUSE HIS RETIREMENT CAUSED HIS ARTHRITIC WIFE NOT TO HEALTH INSURANCE. THEY HAD PAID THEIR HOUSE OFF AND RETIRED BUT BECAUSE HER MEDICAL BILLS AND MEDICINE WERE SO HIGH HE WENT BACK TO WORK AND IS NOW 72 YEARS OLD TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE OUT. SO I GUESS YOU MISSED THAT WHOLE SECTION, AND I GUESS YOU MISSED THAT THEY ARE BLACK, RIGHT? ALSO YOU ONLY POSTED 3 MINUTES OF IT AND AT TIME STAMP 2:40 AND 2:55 INCLUDED BLACK PEOPLE IN THE TOWN HALL AND AT THE PLANT WHERE HE WAS LISTENING TO THEIR STORIES, AND OF COURSE THE BIGGEST BLACK FACE IN IT WAS HIS! I KNOW YOU LIKE TO PLAY DEVIL'S ADVOCATE BUT YOU GO TOO FAR SOMETIMES. YOU DON'T HAVE LIE. OK! BUT BLESS YOUR SOUL ANYWAY, AND I LOVE YOU CAUSE YOU DO MAKE ME LAUGH WITH ALL YOUR THEATRICS!

    C'mon, Sandra. Not that it matters but did you miss the elderly couple from Ohio?

    Half right. Not one black face but two.

    I hate this Uncle TOm and if hes elected i will be waiting for the nuke to hit america and him to stand idly and only talk to the people who nuked us

  • http://myspace.com/mizz_eccentrik Abhor_

    ^ "Uncle Tom" don't you mean Sambo? I watched the segment, did anyone else catch when he said that he wouldn't raise taxes for anyone making below $200,000...last week it was $250,000

  • istandbehindtheIam

    Hate?...Uncle Tom?.....LOL :D....sweetie, if America's nuked, I highly doubt anyone will be "standing idly". Are you watching McCaint lie through his dentures....uhh er, teeth on Larry King Live....it's hilarious, you gotta watch....;)

  • shunda

    I watched Obama at the free Jay-Z concert and I thought about Sandra. Her two favorite people were there. J/K

  • blkdiamonn

    Sandra,

    Sorry, but indesign18 is correct. There was a whole segment about a black couple. Not to mention they also overtly showed him shaking hands with a young black guy at one of his rallies. There were black people throughout this commercial. But, who looks for that though...what's the point? He's a black man campaigning to become President of a majority White country. What difference does it make...he is the BLACK person.

    If u want to call him out on anything that would confirm your claim of selloutness....I was watching Jimmy Kimmel and they just showed a clip of Obama at a rally quoting Sanford & Son. He was supposed to be quoting Fred's famous line...."I'm comin' Lizabet", instead he got it confused with the Jeffersons and said.."I'm comin' Weezie"...lol!! This clip is priceless...I'm looking for it on Youtube now!!

  • KaraZ

    Charles sitcho... Sandra can you just drop the Obama rhetoric for the next few days, its played out at this point. We get it, you don't like him but thank God for Jesus, you have a red passport not a blue one.

  • djeclazz

    Sandra was too busy watching FOX News!!! Keep on hating!!! You got 4 years of material starting Nov. 4!!!!!!

  • http://myspace.com/bettathaniwasb4 2bme

    wow..sambo..uncle tom..talk about crabs in a bucket..

  • missmiami

    It was $4 million and btw, he had an old black couple. Retiree's!!!! Matter of fact, the older gentleman had been retired for 10 years and was forced to work at walmart as a salesman to pay for the cost of his wife's medicine. Besides, the point is to unify & diversify!!!!!!!!!!!!! Obama is a smart man and doesn't cater to one folk (as he would say).

  • BK2ATLMAN

    I watched it last night and wasn't too impressed. He should of shown different nationalities struggles. But the 200k or 250k hell does it matter, most don't make either amount anyway..
    <---- Still voting for Obama!!!!
    Seems like the ones that are coming up with this hate can't even vote or don't even live in this country..lol

  • http://myspace.com/mizz_eccentrik Abhor_

    @ 2bme, if you're directing your crabs in a bucket comment at me i was simply correcting him. Most people get Uncle Tom confused with Sambo. I was not calling Obama a Sambo..just thought i'd clear that up!

  • uptopgrl

    Voting is a selection, I am just saying we are in this economic downfall due to 8 LONG years of mismanagement who is in office hmmm a Republican President! I am for change again I would not care if Sentor Obama was green I know that I can't due another 4- 8 years of a Reagan/Bush clone. I need change and I know darn well that another Republican President isn't going to give me change so I did what I had to do for ME! I Voted for Change in 08'

  • Kymystry

    I was gettin out of my car on my way into the blgd ... and I said to myself .. let me get ready for another one of Sandra's I HATE OBAMA post .. cause I KNEW it was gonna be here after his "info-mercial" ...

    I early voted last Weds ..

  • MistaO

    Seening how SOME "black" people will rise to any occasion to try and marginalize what real, conscious Black people are trying to do... Some people are just plain idiots and can't even remotely grasp the concept of broad appeal.

    The man is trying to be OUR President. The first Black President, do you honestly think he's going to accomplish that by limiting his scope and appeal to only Blacks? Sure white candidates can get away with this as they've been the only ones allowed to play in the games until now.

    So based on this fact, it will take a very concerted effort by all real thinking Americans, Black, White, Red, Brown and Yellow, who are honestly tired of all the stupidity that is so pervasive in American society today.

    But end game, seeing so many "blacks" so anxious and willing to find fault in a honest Black man, comes as no real surprise to me. Being a Black man in managment in corporate America for going on 15 years now, as I look back, most of those who tried to do harm towards my path have sadly in fact been "black"...

    That Slave mentality is something that some blacks just refuse to let go of. And this is not about general decent and choice of candidate either so those in the hate camp really need to stop using this argument as cover for their own hate and jealousy of Barack Obama and more directly their jealousy of his Black wife and children. That's what a lot of these "black" haters really resent. The fact that they are TOGETHER and love each other...

  • missmiami

    @ 21(MISTAO) LOVE EXACTLY WHAT U R SAYING!!!!! U hit the nail on the head. As I have said before, we don't need anyone else to bring us down.

    I find myself weeping at the state of the world & the chance to make history. This man is sacrificing his life as so many have done before him. All for what, so that our children and grandchildren may have a chance at the American Dream. Until this day, I thought that dream was dead. I stood in line for 2 hours w/my son amongst young and old , black, white, asian, hispanic men and woman of all shapes and sizes hoping, dreaming, doing there part for CHANGE. So I ask, all you haters and unbelievers; what are you doing to MAKE A DIFFERENCE?????????????

    when did john mccain become the champion for black people, women or civil rights ?
    please tell me ? maybe it was when he was voting against mlk holiday ? maybe it was when he was voting against the equal rights amendment or against domestic violence legislation. what has john mccain said that is going to help African American ? the unemployment rate for african American is double digits and for young black men its over 20%, only 30% finish high school and less than 50% finish in 4 yrs from these crappy no having materials school tell me how is he going to help the black community ? he wont and you know so.... just jealous. i like the ad, Sen Obama brought it home, i like it when my people do it right.

  • shunda

    Morning Fam. Now that I am fully awake I can comment. I need Barack to run this country not worry about race. Look at where worrying about race has gotten us for all these years. If he had Ray Ray and Sheniqua talking about how they couldn't afford to smoke weed anymore that would be a problem too. People are never happy.

    @ blkdiamonn: WRONG!!! The United Snakes of America is NOT majority WHITE. YT is the minority in this country, AND it is a scientific FACT, YT is the minority race on the PLANET. Hence why they are losing their minds. YT is on the brink of extinction.

    @Sandra, it must be a dreadful life to look in the mirror everyday and hate your on black skin, you own black people. To hate being Black, Gay,and Female in America. The UK will except you back. I got $5 on a ticket for you.

  • JustSaying

    Black elderly woman at 2:40, and black woman in a blue t-shirt wearing glasses and a black man in a suit at 2:57. There were blacks in the video but we are all people so I guess we blended together. Why, does this have to be about race? Why, are people always looking for a black person around him? Why can't we just have the best person for the job? WHy, Why, Why.

  • Fenix6376

    Obama has not changed his stance on raising taxes. For those of you commenting on the 200,000.00 comment. Obama has always maintained that taxes will be raised on couples making 250,000.00/singles making 200,000.00. This isn't new..It's just the first time you've listened.

    I don't make either so, my taxes wouldn't be affected by either Obama's plan or McCain's plan.

  • http://myspace.com/chocolate.sheek Chocolate.sheek

    The program had a diverse group of people. Blacks, whites, and hispanics. I thought "O" presented himself as a geninuely concerned person. They talked about the topics which the American peole feel are the most important. The war and the economy, mostly. Being a US Marine, and a proud Obama support I agree with him and his stance on such issues. I wish that people would stop insisting that this man is black enough. Seriously, this should be the last thing we want displayed as a people. The man smokes Newports, for God Sakes! (lol) Anyways, I think Barack would make a great president for America. He is half black and half white! Everyone should be happy!

    This infomercial was not about race, but about EVERYONE’S economic struggle RIGHT NOW. He may have showed some white folks struggling, but what who can not relate to their struggles (black, white or brown)? I was in tears (maybe because I am sensitive like that). I enjoyed the entire 30 minutes. Step outside of the box, for ONCE.

  • Mississippi16

    He did have all races in the clip.

    Barack married a black woman and had 2 black children and named them Sasha and Malia. If that ain't black enough - please tell me what is.

    If his wife had blond hair, blue eyes and his kids names were Mary Rose and Becky Sue, then i'd agree that he doesn't acknowledge his daddy's side of the family.

    Plus, when he started talking about better education, more jobs and good paying jobs... those are good for America (Black, White, Hispanic, Korean, etc)

    What's with the negativity?

    Let's be clear that your blog is entertaining for the most part.. But, I'm tired of you bashing our people.

    Now, some deserve it.. But, for the most part you just be hatin'. Sounds like a form of self hate.

    It's hard enough for us to come together as a race, to support each other, and to lift each other up..

    You're not helping with the negativity.

    God willing, when Obama wins - I'm shedding tears off top.

    Our ancestors died for our rights, and I never believed we'd get to see one of our own as the President.
