BTW, R Raegan had Rev Billy Graham as his spiritual mentor. Rev Graham broke form BJU in the 1950's and that break almost put BJU out of business.

"All those things bother me: The populism, the lying and the scapegoating and the xenophobia bother me, but then thereís a layer of incompetence here. I suppose, in a way, we should be thankful: If he had a coherent ideology, heíd probably be more dangerous." P J O'Rourke
So, if Billy Graham was Reagan's spiritual advisor, don't you think Reagan knew about BJU's discriminatory racial policies and its condemnation of Catholics before he campaigned there? Don't you think it should have been ďcause for concernĒ that he still decided to go?
It should have been because right after Reagan took office, he attempted to reverse the long-standing IRS policy of denying tax-exempt status to private schools that practice racial discrimination, and tried to grant an exemption to Bob Jones University. Ultimately, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the IRSí policy.

This sounds like a bunch of mental children being petulant over meaningless grievances and slights. It sounds like poor listening skills and comments taken out of context. It sounds like people acting in a rash manner because for whatever reason they are feeling exposed or defensive or insecure.
Sounds like most (not all, but well more than half of) conversations about race.

I am only guessing but I think the more non-racists are accused of racism the more they will become racists. Most normal people can see that their freedoms are being altered in the name of make believe racism.
It frustrates them ,,,so maby the next time All sharpton cries racism maby someone will crack him over the head with a bat. Then for sure that guy will be racist
Why is it non racists seldom cry racism.
Wasnt there a senator Byrd that was a KKK member ,,yet liberals loved him. mmmmm
Good stuff there Pete, but then I'm sure you are being "derisive".Most normal people can see that their freedoms are being altered in the name of make believe racism. Why is it non racists seldom cry racism
Love how Obama is mocking before a crowd structured to laugh with him. Little does he realize a ever growing number of Americans don't like to be mocked in his ::being PC:: common tone.

A couple of things strike me odd about this story.
1. Didnít the majority of students have to vote for her in order for her to win Homecoming Queen? If so, I would assume they saw pictures of her, and knew she was white before they voted for her. Iím sure there are some black students that donít like the fact that a white girl won Homecoming Queen at a traditionally black college, but thatís their problem. Obviously, the majority of the black students didnít have a problem with it.
2. How did everyone find out she sent a letter to Obama, and what the letter said? Did she leak it to other students and the press? How did the press get a copy of the letter (they were able to use quotes from it)? It kind of makes me wonder if she wasnít looking for a little publicity.
Nancy,, If I only new what derisive meansGood stuff there Pete, but then I'm sure you are being "derisive".
I'll go look it up ,,I promise
I often scratch my head with all the double standard stuff. Cant they hear themselves.
Thats why I consider blatant hypocrocy and chronic finger pointing as some type of mental disorder. And then have a man in his position crying about the right wing opposing him day in and day out along with the evil fox network brainwashing viewers.
I dont know, I get more disenfranchised with the going ons of our nations business more and more each day.

Lets hope the Myans were wrong and there will be someone else to put in office in 2013.
