What Have We Become?
Chris as a white conservative I don't always agree with your point on stories in the Black Voice News. But I respect your work and objectivity. I trust you will use this opportunity and the shameful attacks on Obama to help our young people in particular understand the deep hurt and division that racism and ignorance causes. May God give you continued strength and voice. Posted by GBC at 5:25 pm October 17, 2008
I hope the Black Voice News will print this madness and expose this group and the Republicans for what they are. They are not the party of Lincoln. They have been hijacked by morons. The world needs to know just what Black people are forced to endure everyday. Posted by JCM 4:45 pm October 17
What a liar.

I have read some of the comments and to the ones that are using the words ignorant/ignorance are wrong. Those words mean not knowing. This lady and her group knew what they were putting out there. So the proper word to use for them is STUPID!!!!! Posted by ODM at 4:29 pm Oct 17, 2008
Get Over It
Please this has been blown out of proportion. Obama and the dump Dems knew what they were in for when they nominated him. Go back to Africa if you can't accept the truth. Posted by Glad at 3:28 pm Oct 17, 2008
Warren Is A Screaming Idiot
How can a Black person be a part of such an organization? Just goes to show we are still a nation of confused gatekeepers. I hope the Black Voice shows them up for what they really are. Posted by KT at 3:12 pm October 17, 2008
Proud to be a Dem.
Republicans are collapsing under the weight their own arrogance and moronic antics....although I'll be the last to stop them! Posted by Dem at 2:39 pm Oct 17, 2008
Shamed To Be Called A Republican
Ms. Levister thank you for the great story on RCC. As a recent graduate I was not aware that the board never had a Black member. Glad you put the spotlight on this ugly history. So much for all the talk about diversity. Ms. Figueroa and other members of the board have fallen a notch in my opinion. As for the Obama Bucks. This kind of bigotry is shameful but unfortunately I'm not surprised. I hope the Black Voice News will continue to speak out for the people. Posted by VTR at 2:31 pm October 17, 2008
I Am No Longer An Independent
I just got off the fence. The Republicans have lost their way. I hope your newspaper will continue to expose this. But sadly many won't hear the call. Posted by Jack at 2:29 pm October 17, 2008
The time for throwing rocks and hiding your hands and saying did I do that is over. This is the kind of behavior that keep Blacks and whites divided in this country. She needs to repent, but that cannot happen unless you've realize you're done something wrong. This could be a problem. JESUS HELP US !!!

Hispanics feel the same way when made fun of, but that doesn't seem to stop people because we're all lumped together as ILLEGALS! Posted by MONICA at 2:14 pm Oct 17, 2008
The Reps Got Caught
Now that this story has been played on national TV. The local Republicans are ducking for cover saying gee we didn't know - that's B.S. They're all liars. Out them all Black Voice. Posted by Carl at 1:56 pm, October 17 2008
And You Are Surprised?
There is a lot all of us can say about the anger we all feel. But the worst thing is those two Black women will remain members of that group and put up with such insults. Posted by John at 1:48 pm Oct 17, 2008
Yummy more stuff for Blacks like you to whine about The truth hurts. Print that! Posted by Neo at 1:22 pm October 17, 2008
This is the reason why this country is not ready for an Afro American president there is still much racism in the country Posted by nacho at 1:17 pm Oct 17, 2008
This is what's wrong with America. people don't think before they act... Caught red handed she is. just accept the fact. Posted by asian south east at 11:53 am Oct 17, 2008
Please let us know how Sarah Palin has been so injured? Was she put on money with a cross, a Klan hood, A burning church, and a Swastika? Did they make monkey dolls with her name on it? Did they shout "terrorist" and "kill her" at rallies? Because then there's an equal link. Posted by Stop Making Excuses at 11:03 am Oct 17, 2008
I am a white Republican woman. I think that was the most disgraceful thing I have ever seen. Being a Republican has nothing to do with being a racist and I hope to all who read this, Don't judge us all by what one ignorant Republican woman says. We do not share her views.

Are You Kidding Me?
Just food? It just so happened that the food was all stereotypical items attributed to African Americans. There's no excuse for this. Posted by Nic at 10:57 am Oct 17, 2008
Pretty scary to think these are the type of people supporting McCain. I certainly won't. Posted by Dean at 10:48 am Oct 17, 2008
You have got to be kidding me. "It was just food to me", she is either a complete idiot or believes that every one else is stupid enough to believe that comment. Shame on her, she is a PERFECT example of what is wrong with the Republican party. Posted by Michigan Gal at 10:43 am Oct 17, 2008
May God please forgive you for bringing your Klan mentality to the Republican Party. If I were a Republican I would be ashamed and appalled at the very least. Just like many of the other comments written about this article - it is safer to face a racist when they don't hide behind the "it wasn't racist to me." Come on Ms. President and join everyone else in this century. You should be evicted from the party, state of CA, and the human race. Posted by Very Discouraged at 10:13 am Oct 17, 2008
Full Of It
As a Black-American, I'm not surprised by this at all. Pretty much expected behavior from such a group as this! Posted by Taffy Lewis at 9:57 am Oct 17, 2008
Stupid is, is what stupid does. Posted by Sandy at 9:30 am Oct 17, 2008
Just Food Huh?
If it were just food to her why didn't she surround him with grilled salmon, asparagus, and arugula greens? Posted by Outraged in GA at 9:22 am Oct 17, 2008
I KNEW RACISM EXISTED BUT I THINK IT WAS IN THE OPEN LIKE THAT. LADY U NEED TO BE DISMISSED FROM THAT GROUP U KNEW EXACTLY WHAT U WERE DOING AND SAYING JUST OWN UP TO IT I AM HIGHLY OFFENDED HOW DARE U DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT. U ARE MMAKING IT WORST FOR MCCAIN THEN IT ALREADY IS JUS BY YOUR IGNORANCE. OHH I THOUGHT WE WERE ALL ADULTS HERE. WHAT U REALLY NEED TO DO IS GROW UP!!!!! AN APOLOGY DOES NOT MAKE UP FOR WHAT YOU DID Posted by Q.STUBBS at 9:06 am Oct 17, 2008
Keep on conserving the old racist attacks conservatives. Posted by Willie at 7:45 am Oct 17, 2008
Just An Opinion
Fedele told the newspaper. "I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn't my attempt." Come on Lady...you precisely knew what you were putting out. Stop the ignorance and be realistic for once. You really think that will gain you points in the McCain race. Apologies are too late to be said...what is done is done. Food is food...yeah yeah!!! and cristicism is criticism...know the difference before you make such remarks. You women should be ashame of yourselves. May God be with you all.
