    IMO, Because of your hard right political leanings you've already formed an opinion on what the term represents and any definition or discussion thereof wouldn't change your current view.

    So it's really pointless.

    I think an example of acting white not specifically for obama but for black people in general is the ridiculous lengths black women are expected to go to look presentable especially when it comes to hair

    A lot of corporations have in the past at least essentially outlawed natural black hair styles

    Well that would be stereotyping and profiling, which is wrong

    That would be a good example over the years.

    However I would also say that there are a tonne of hairstyles that white men or women could not wear at work also. Plenty of men would prefer to not shave every day and grow their hair out but can’t because of their roles. Work dress codes at most white collar positions are hardly in line with what people enjoy wearing socially. Most of the styles enforced for work have been a hassle to varying degrees for people of all backgrounds I’d wager.

    Also, it’s been a hell of a long time since white collar employers have had strict dress codes on women. The black women at my work here in NY range from natural curls, to full sets of braids, and everything in between. Certainly no forcing of “white people” hair going on these days

    That’s probably the only time I’ve ever been described as “hard right”.

    Do you think I share most of my views with Tony Abbott or something?

    "Acting white" may be a bunch of white people telling uppity black people to act like them..... or telling black people they aren't black if they're too white.... but I don't pretend to know what she means by it...

    Hard right on education and healthcare, you're anti protest and pro big business and anti gun control.

    So somewhere just to the right of Abbott

    I’m hard right on education? How so?

    How does my preference for universal healthcare fit in with the hard right exactly? I suppose your view is clouded by my opinion that healthcare is not a right. I don’t have to believe it a right to want it offered to everyone. People make the same mistake when they hear me talk about abortion. I believe logically life begins at conception, but I also see no logical reason to deny abortion to a woman that chooses it, right up until she is in labour.

    I won’t bother with asking about big business or anti-protest. I’m sure it’s a similar misunderstanding of oversimplification as you made with healthcare.

    As for gun control, time was libertarianism was a liberal, left wing trait. You know, your basic notion of letting people do what they want without he need for justification providing they aren’t hurting anyone else. If you do hurt someone though then I’m all for heavy handed punishment. Basically the same way I feel about drugs.

    It really is quite strange that you think I am right wing. I can’t imagine you’ve read too many of my posts to hold that opinion

    Libertarian in US speak is essentially a right winger who doesn't want to identify as such.

    Like insisting that the NFL do something about those uppity blacks, and are generally pro-Trump(such as yourself)

    I insisted the NFL do something do I? I’m pro trump? I guess you can quote me on that?

    It’s becoming more and more clear why you think I’m right wing. It’s because that’s what Yu want me to be.

    My abortion loving, drug taking, universal healthcare loving ass is more left wing than any American known to man
