In reply to: Smith: Secession talk is disturbing reaction to election »

November 30, 2012

ummm...the 'white vote' was still 72% of the election.

72% is not a minority. It is not even close to a minority.

That means...and I know this is a tough concept...that means a wholllle lot of white people voted for Obama.

by 'changing demographics', it means you ignore 'other' groups at your own peril. That the GOP only tried to win the election with white males (who by NO coincidence makes up their entire Congressional power slate), shows not racism, but sheer stupidity.

the article is grossly inaccurate and supports the myth that people are upset with Obama's color. It intentionally fans the fuel of what little racism factors into secession talks. Hey, we didn't despise Bush cause he was white. Perhaps some hate radio junkies don't like Obama because of hate radio 24/7 bs.

Nonetheless, even the most rabid know the secession talk is merely symbolic. And in the worst case they can follow their own advice they love to throw out - Delta is ready when you are.

I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
