  • I personally feel sorry for the poster of this question. She was confused about something she heard and decided to come on CafeMom and post a question, hoping for an answer. What happens? The usual. It turns into a race thing and moms start attacking other moms. No answer, just attacks. Nice. Says a lot about some of the people on here. I am off to find her an answer.

  • Hubby and I were talking about this yesterday. It could be renamed the President's Mansion, like the governors have mansions. But, it is a house that is white. I don't think the name will change.

  • "Oh, thats going way too far. This is what happens when people of color get voted into positions they have no idea how to act."

    Wow, brave strong words coming from someone hiding behind the anon tag, lol. And NO this is not how people of color act...I am an AVID supporter of Obama, and I have NEVER heard, read or seen him say anything remotely close to this.
