    Obama's senate replacement must be black - according to Rep. Bobby Rush. Mr. Rush has a right to his opinion. The final say is the Illinois governor's. :)

    Yep, he has a right to be racist. The final say is the governors has nothing to do with the racist nature of the op. It is irrelevant.

    Being from, and still living in, Illinois, I resent this statement.

    Racism may be at work in Chicago, but Chicago is not part of Illinois. It is a state unto it's own. It lives by it's own rules. I live downstate...

    It's hard telling who will be the next Senator. The governor is not black, but he IS from Chicago. I don't care what color he is, just so he is more active in the Senate than Obama was!

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I tried to find a black "rollseyes" but only could find a blue one!

    When one favors the color of skin instead of abilities.. that one is a racist.

    Will this also be a new requirement written into the constitution for president, too? I mean, if America ever elects a white president again (actually, Obama is just as much white as black), it has to mean americans are racist, right?

    Racism perpetrated by blacks in this country is disgusting...just as any racism is disgusting.

    No one should be surprised at Congressman Rush's comments. He was the founder of the Black Panther's in Illinois, which refused to admit whites to his organization.

    For him, race is everything.

    Incidentally, back in 2000 rush had an opponent for the congressional seat. He noted that his opponent "went to Harvard and became an educated fool." (Source: AP) The opponent's name: Barack Obama. It was Rush who suggested that Obama may not be black enough to represent blacks, given his background.

    Rush represents a congressional district in Chicago which is 65% black. He couldn't get elected dog-catcher outside Chicago.

    Now, let's talk about Jesse White, the current Illinois Secretary of State. In his last race, he won all 102 counties. He's a Democrat. By the way, he is black. A lot of the counties he won are rural and mostly white. He said, "voters weren't concerned about the color of my skin. They were concerned about the services I could deliver.

    Jesse White is the face of African-Americans in Illinois, not Bobby Rush.

    It like saying New Orleans is not part of Louisiana. To those in Northern part of the State that's certainly seems like the truth.

    From what I see in the article, this is A guy that made this demand.

    A guy doesn't make all of Illinois or Chicago racist. It only makes the one guy racist. What's sad is a black person might be the next most qualified but he may not be picked for fear some will say he gave in to the pressure.

    I admit, what this guy said is stupid but he seems to be the only one rowing that boat. We shouldn't put others in the boat with him.

    Yes! But Obama cleverly played the race card when convenient.

    Senator Obama never played the race card during his presidential campaign.

    But if it helps conservatives to feel better to believe such nonsense then go ahead. :)
