Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I just saw what has to be one of the most offensive political commercials in a long time (I live in NYC...we are not a swing state and there is no doubt that the state will go for the President)....

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

The commercial featured an African-American family man in the kitchen with his family...He talks about his disdain for the stereotypes that African-Americans don't want to work...He talks about being laid off and here is the kicker...He wants politicians to stop allowing immigrants into the country so that African-Americans can get jobs...WTF??!?!?!?  I went to the numbersUSA.Org website (the sponsor of the ad) to find out more information on these jack@sses, but it appears offline (surprise)...More of the divide and conquer methodology...Get African-Americans to falsely believe that immigrants are the reason for the high rates of unemployment (relative to whites) rather than much more deeper and complex structural forces.  I REALLY wish I knew who is behind this group so that I can send them a tersely written email.

Lets see....get working class whites to believe that African-Americans are the reason for their socio-economic status, get African-Americans to believe that immigrants are the reason they can't jobs, get the middle class to resent the working poor, get workers to focus on government regulations instead of excessive executive compensation...all the while, the rich get richer at the expense of everyone else...Nice work if you can get it.
