Obama carefully courts black votes with Sharpton

He avoids race, so the story goes. He can't afford to alienate white voters, black people will vote for him again anyway, so he has little to gain by approaching such a volatile subject.
Yet on Wednesday, President Barack Obama is scheduled to make a foray into racial territory by speaking in New York at the Rev. Al Sharpton's national convention — an early step on the tricky path that Obama must navigate in order to engage black voters who are crucial to his re-election.

My Pops was an Army Officer and racism was not tolerated in his house at all. Any racism that I know now I have learned on my own.
For that, I am grateful. I've known and loved folks of all races (except arab cocksuckers, can't stand 'em) and count a black family as my dearest friends to this day. I've got Mexican friends that I will stand with in a fight any day against anybody and there's more than a few white motherfuckers that I hate more than the IRS.
But ever since Obama took office I have seen some serious racial divisions in this country. Not just white against black but also white against brown because of his refusal to do anything about our security on the southern border.
And now this shit. SHARPTON? That race card playing, race baiting motherfucking sonofabitch? You have got to be kidding me.
Let me tell you what, motherfuckers. If I was as unpopular as Obama and trying to get re-elected, the last person I would have anything to do with is Al Fucking Sharpton.
I seriously hope this comes up to bite Obama in his fucking black ass.
