dKos: Hillary made Obama "Too Black"

DKos has recommended what must be the dumbest diary in
blog history.

Anyone working in broadcast knows the difficulty of getting correct
levels and colors.   NTSC is jokingly referred to by engineers as
"Never The Same Color."

Even if it looks correct in the editing bay monitor, it will go through
processing at several more stages where the producer is no control,
from playback editor to station output, to home TV.

Web processing is even worse.  What looks washed out while being
played out on a Mac will look too dark played out on a PC.

Monitor adjustment means everything - print artists, video artists
secretaries - all will see a completely different image.

It is rumored that when SNL lampooned the CNN debate,
Obama supporters were furious that Obama was not
black.

Now, Daily Kos is drumming up their usual Hillary hate,
claiming Hillary conspired to make Obama "too black."

Get a grip, dudes!   Take editing 101.   Is there any wonder that this
former respected forum has made itself the laughing stock?

Is Obama the Frontrunner?

I would never guess by how some of his supporters are behaving the last 2 days.

Kos is guilty of reverse racism

Typical Obama reaction. When their candidate legitimately loses, they blame race. Its like you have to vote for him, or you are a racist. I call this reverse racism.

I would not be suprised if this came directly from someone connected to Obamas campaign. He has used his race as a sheild against attacks before. He will use it again when caught in a lie, or on the defensive. His is the ugliest campaign I have seen since the Bush campaign.

Re: dKos:

I guess they are conceding that a black person can't win an election then? That's the message I'm getting.

Or it sounds like perhaps somehow they believe "blacker" is in some way worse? I wonder how I would feel about that if I were very dark skinned.

What is the underlying message here? It feels creepy to me.

Blaming Hillary for EVERYTHING

It is not an accident that Obama's supporters try to demonize Hillary and blame Hillary for their own stupid mistakes. This types of behaviors just reflect how Obama and his camp ran this primary.

Yesterday, Obama had his FIRST real press conference where journalists asked sharp questions. Guess what Obama did? He blamed Hillary for the hostile treatment from the media. What a responsible and inspirational political figure! Let's see how far Obama can go blaming Hillary for EVERYTHING.

"Obama had his FIRST real press conference where journalists asked sharp questions. Guess what Obama did? He blamed Hillary for the hostile treatment from the media."

Oh, so when he complains about the media it isn't "WHINING".

Oops, I forgot, only women "whine"

Re: dKos: Hillary made Obama

Campaigns have a tendency to make the opposing side look "sinister" by using a grey filter.  I think that's what happened here.

Me, I'm sick of people, saying  

"Somebody said he's 'black' they're RACIST".  
or
"They said his middle name -- RACIST!"

If this tactic continues through November, I don't think it will win a whole lot of votes.

Me, I think in honor of St. Patty's, he needs to drop the middle name and add an apostrophe to his name!

Barack O'Bama!
(Erin go Barack!)

Might help with the Irish Catholic vote ;-).

The whole thing about race

and religion has really been disgusting.  If I were Muslim I would be so highly offended by the way the subject is being treated by the Obama campaign.  He clearly thinks being called Muslim is on the same level as calling someone a racial slur.  How unfortunate.

Re: The whole thing about race

Maybe because those using the term are using it as a slur.

Hillary made Obama "Too Black"

Come on, folks, it's mot "drinking the kool aid."  This is a well-known tactic to make African-Americans look scary.

If you haven't heard of camapaigns and media outlets doing this, you haven't followed news very well or very long.

I was called a "racist bitch" at DKos

just for criticizing Obama about something to do with Iraq. I don't remember the exact comment, but it wasn't racist, I'm not a racist, and I have a father. DKos is dead to me until after the primary...

Come On...Really.

Hillary and her Campaign would never use any negative or racially-based or biased means to try to harm Obama.  They care too much for the party and unity.  As far as I know.

Re: dKos

This is not a laughing matter.  The charge of racism is one of the most serious accusations you can make in our politics.

The willingness of many Obama supporters to levy that charge against the Clintons at the drop of a hat has been one of the most disappointing things in this primary campaign.
