[Xmca-l] Re: The value of Philosophy: xmca and the GOP

It would be interesting to know how white people view the "black-skinned white man" (Frantz fanon's term)running on the Republican ticket.  In many black circles he is the epitome of what carter g. Woodson refer to as "a miseducated negro"  (overly religious in the religion of his former slavemaster, ignorant of his history, a false sense of self and identity, and a one-dimensional man). Juxtaposed against Obama who "appears" to struggle with a du boisian double consciousness, Carson is truly a by-product of American slavery.  Do the two identities represent the liberalism and conservatism of the American body polity, or the absurd products of American slavery?

During the last three presidential elections (including this one), the GOP
debates have became a curious mixture of reality show, bad comedy and
pseudo-surrealism. It would be fun to watch if those guys on tv were not
running to control one of the biggest nuclear arsenals on earth.
