    Another senseless murder of a cop makes me wonder if Obama hadn't racially divided this nation with his black rhetoric, starting with the Duke lacrosse team incident, maybe, we as a nation, would not be where we are right now with all the hatred towards cops and the rise of the black lies matter movement?

    When all is said and done, the truth is, the "buck," of racially divisive rhetoric in America, will stop at the feet of this President. IMHO ....

    I'd love to hear from you on this issue.

    I believe in personal responsibility for one's actions.

    Could you elaborate on Obama's involvement in the Duke lacrosse team incident? I don't remember him having anything to do with it.

    Trying to have it both ways...

    In another thread you blamed an attack on a Latino on Trump for things that he has said.

    In this case you want to blame the media reporting of things that Obama said for the attacks on cops instead of blaming Obama.

    Racial animosity existed in the U.S. long before Obama.

    What you should be wondering about is whether racist and racially prejudiced white people in the GOP who want to blame the President for everything are the ones who have really racially divided the nation.:thumbs:

    You are beyond silly if you think racial hostilities in this country are where they are because of one man. The country was racially divided before Obama.

    If that is what you wish to believe, who am I to place a roadblock in your way! Just continue riding down that same road, and ignore the bumps you experience beneath your seat! :thumbs:

    Yes I realize you don't care about reality. You and your guild just want to blame the black President for everything that you feel is wrong with the world.:thumbs:

    I now see one of the reasons you moved to Cali was so that you could be near lala land.

    Brother, I have shaken enough sand from my sandals, regarding your views, that I could surely fill the Sahara Desert one-hundred times over! I proclaim Ichabod over you and your house! :tear:

    But in love, I still pray for you, as do all the others on this board that you have disgusted with comments like the one above! :flower:

    It is not Obama's fault. It is not the gun's fault. the only blame lies directly with the people who did it. We have to stop blaming crimes on society and inanimate objects. Individual people make their decisions. They and they alone are to blame.

    I can agree with most of this statement, especially on guns. But, the POTUS has been stirring the potof racial divide like few before him have. He once compared himself to Lincoln, but Lincoln didn't divide the races. Still, your points are well made.:thumbs:

    First off the shooter is totally responsible. Besides that his parents are responsible for not teaching him morals. Next all blacks are responsible for not seeking to be part of this country, but rather seeking hand outs in reparation. Next yes the president holds some responsibility as he is a race baiting traitor/terrorist. Also law enforcement and our governing authorities hold a great deal of responsibility for this. They are not doing their jobs when they allow a group of people to riot, loot, and burn a town or city with little to no consequences. What that does is causes those who do that to believe they are untouchable.

    Lastly and most importantly the church is responsible. It is responsible for hiding its head in the sand and allowing liberals to populate our government. It is responsible for not speaking up and making it clear that any democrat is not an American who loves what this country was founded on. They are either a socialist in the making or a full blown socialist. A socialist is either a communist in the making or a full blown communist. In the end there is a lot of blame to go around and there is only one way to fix it. Turn to God in Christ.

    By the way my prayers are first for the family and friends of the officer and next for the shooter to get his life right with God before justice is carried out which should be the death penalty.

    He has but it doesn't matter. Regardless of what He does, which is despicable, the blame lies solely on those who commit the act. No one forces them.

    It certainly did. However, there is no doubt Obama has done what he can to stir things up unnecessarily.

    Of course he did, and he is responsible for that. He is not responsible for its existence.

    Ed. to add- I hope this makes sense. Cannot think of a better way to express it. Need caffeine. :)

    See bolded. Stereotypes are the crutch of the simple minded. That is one of the most blatantly offensive and incorrect statements I have ever read on this board. I'm sure the moderators won't care...as usual.

    So I've seen recommendations to shoot Mexicans on site crossing the border, another wetback joke from EWF and now this garbage. It's been a real red letter weekend here on the baptist board. Keep up the good work.
