WRONG! He got elected twice because he was the best choice. If Romney had won would it be because he is white? Did you have a problem with W spending a third of his presidency in Texas? NEXT!

DickTracey

The majority of newly registered voters, could not even read or write, let alone know who was the better choice!

The only reason they registered ( besides the freebies they got) to vote, was to vote for color!

And yes, if Romney went around and picked up bus loads of white trash that were unregistered and gave them ice cream and Red Bull to vote for him, things may have been different.

Don't forget about voter intimidation. What's the opposite of the Black Panthers for the whitey's?

deertracker

The KKK!

JMOP

I respectfully disagree. The KKK has hidden identity, while the Black Panthers don't.
Hell's Angels is what I was thinking of. It slipped my mind. Thanks for the help.

deertracker

Hell's Angels don't like Blacks but they don't seek them out to do harm. Black Panthers did not seek out whites to do harm.

mimi's word

I do believe you are wrong about black panthers seeking out whites to do harm...
National Field Marshal for the New Black Panthers King Samir Shabazz who was caught on video tape allegedly intimidating voters in Philadelphia in 08 is now in charge of the New Black Panthers plan to create inner city militaries that would go into nurseries and kill white babies and murder white people n the street

And before you want to bring up the KKK I am probably one of the few people that actually has ever dealt with an incident with the KKK around here where a cross was burnt in my parents yard after my parents rented a home to a white lady and her mixed teen daughters. So I do know a little of both sides...

deertracker

breitbart.com REALLY? You don't know nearly as much as you think you know. You do realize that just because it is on the net doesn't make it true? The PANTHERS WERE THERE TO STOP THE INTIMIDATION OF BLACK VOTERS.

mimi's word

I do know quite a bit thank you...I know what it is like to be discriminated against. I know the fear the KKK instills. I also know the hatres and name calling from black p-eople who think you are trash. The Panters are not any better than there counter part.

deertracker

You are so wrong. I guess Blacks are supposed to keep turning the other cheek. No thanks!

Dr. Information

So the black panthers were at the voting booths with their garb on with nightsticks to protect the black people from voter intimidation? Wow how unintelligently grand. Please stay in Sandusky where all those smart people live.

deertracker

Did anyone get hurt? Were any white people unable to vote? Were any white people forced to vote a certain way? I rest my case! NEXT!

Dr. Information

So someone has to get hurt for it to be intimidation? You fail again. Google and websters dictionary would be your friend.

deertracker

Very appropriate name DICK!

Congratulations, Ms. Ard.

samiam

HA HA HA HA...this is a joke, right?

Whatever happened about ignoring color and being more concerned with character and integrity?

deertracker

Tell us about her character and integrity!

DGMutley

samiam,

She has both character and integrity. She would have never be considered for the job if she didn't. Actually, those traits sometimes interfere with managers getting the job done.

samiam

I never said she didn't. I was merely flabbergasted that she would be honored for being black. Why not one of the first black assistant principals at the city schools or th first black superintendent? To be truthful, I didn't even know until this article came out that she is black! From the same pictureof her that is always used by SR, I just always thought she had an olive complexion. Oh well, I had a good laugh from this article.

deertracker

You thought she was white. Admit it!

huronguy

Best choice lmao. Oh because Obama had so much prior experience? What a joke. If it wasn't for affirmative action most blacks wouldn't have jobs not because of racism but because the white man will always be better qualified. Let's face it if a black person isn't singing, dancing or throwing a ball there will always be a white person more qualified. We are tired of black folks getting freebies for crying! Work for it!
How or why did miss Ard get hired anyways?

JMOP

Not always. I would be the happiest person in the planet if Dr. Carson would become president. After all, politics isn't brain surgery.

deertracker

Huronguy, you seriously have an inferiority complex. Are you short?

Dr. Information

ah, name calling. 1st sign of insecurity.

OH-IO

Here we go again. White people trying to dictate what Black people can do for Black History Month. If a Irish official is a keynote speaker at a St.Patrick's Day event; it's ok. If a Jewish person is honored for their heritage at Hanukkah it's fine. It's not for other ethnicities to dictate a cultural event. Slavery is over so get it over it.

deertracker

Agreed!

mimi's word

How about any of the other hard working black people in the city who actually try to better the city and do their job and still struggle and work and perserve through??? I would be more than happy to support them. I just think she is the wrong choice for this award. She will be named through history as the first woman to be in that position but i would like to read about the first woman who did the job.

deertracker

THIS IS NOT ABOUT HER JOB PERFORMANCE! Geez!

slightthroat212

@deertracker...how right you are, but some just don't get that any more than they get that black people in February honor their forefathers with Black History Month because they can. It's their right to do so. It isn't about slavery or anything like that....its honoring those who gave things to betterment or were firsts and happened to be black. Geeze. Not a hard concept to understand but I see prejudice is alive and well here like so many places. Some people just don't get it. I do and I am white.
