Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Rep. Cleaver wants a white President, I think (link)

When Barack Obama was elected, many blacks thought that racism was over and that they would be better off than ever. Oops. Unemployment for blacks is higher than it has been in a long time, but black leaders don't want to confront Obama over it because he is black. Here is another example:

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri) on getting something done about high black unemployment: "A white president, frankly, could be pushed a great deal more than we would push President Obama because nobody would accuse him or her of having partiality towards African-Americans. So its a tough spot and it also mean we still have a long way to go in terms of race relations in this country and the President has, I think, moved through these troubled waters about as well as any African-American could become the first black president."

So, Cleaver thinks it's okay to leave Obama alone because he is black, but he could push a white President around. Nah, not reverse racism at all. I wonder if those in the black community really still think Obama is doing a great job for them.

2. GOP debate

There was another GOP debate last night and we will discuss it on this morning's LFN. It's going to take a lot for Mitt Romney to be knocked off, but I think conservatives are coming up with a plan. Santorum seems to be the anti-Romney (though it might be too late) and he is getting a lot of conservative endorsements. I think you will soon see Perry drop out and endorse no one. Gingrich could fall afterwards if he has a bad showing in South Carolina.

By the way, if you missed last night's debate don't worry. CNN will have the 17th GOP debate on Thursday.

3. Dumb story of the morning (link)

Here is your dumb story of the morning.

A Los Angeles woman was arrested after she offered sexual favors in exchange for chicken McNuggets, Burbank police said.

Khadijah Baseer of Los Angeles reportedly opened customers’ car doors in the drive-thru of McDonald’s on the 1700 block of Olive Avenue about 11 p.m. Wednesday, asking for free chicken McNuggets in exchange for sexual favors, Officer Joshua Kendrick said.

A man told police Baseer approached him but he refused the offer.

Baseer was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of prostitution.
