just wondering if anyone takes notice of the huge slave trade going on

in todays modern world..young women get kidnapped and drugged ,

they end up in some pervert palace with no chance of escape..

that is today,not the slave trade of 300 years ago..

if the black people actually hate slavery ..why not stop it ..

why not get loud jessee or al not so Sharpton to speak out against

modern day slavery,,,it is happening under our nose ..but you wont

hear Obama speak about it..ever ever ever,,his wife wont allow that

If he did speak out it would go against the first lady's "all this for a flag' ideology.
After all our flag does stand for freedom.

Yeah he's really not a good choice to look up too, but it's him and holder sending out the message it's ok to beat up white people. After all neither is speaking out against it happening.

It's gunna turn shitty when the whites start beating up blacks again. People only put up with so much, then start retaliating. The worse it get's the easier it will be, I'm afraid.

Like to have heard the conversation that led up to not needing another black president. Maybe democrat president would have been a better choice of words. Maybe they were comparing this black president to past white presidents. Maybe the teacher was making a point as to not another black president OR white president but maybe Hispanic or Asian one.
Maybe he is worried about the crumbling cliff we all are standing on, while explaining economics to a kid that thinks they don't have to learn because their black and told whats not given to them, it's ok to just take it. And the comment slipped out.
One things for sure, the sheeps minds are already made up...
Whether or not Mr. Voight actually made the statement, the statement itself is blatantly racist — regardless of how much effort one may make to sanitize it through multiple rationalizations concerning context. Neither can dismissing people with whom you disagree as "sheeple" work such magic.

It's not a freedom of speech issue. Any teacher making racist comments to students is a form of verbal abuse of the children entrusted to his care.
Kinda iffy....on the "verbal abuse" scale, isn't it?.....

There's absolutely nothing "iffy" about adults teaching children that they or their peers are worth less than other people. Why would you want to rationalize it?

are you from fairfield, oh.....no youre not. If you were you would not have posted such a asinine comment. The obituary section in that schools newspaper simply informs you of the passing of former or current students. It has absolutely nothing to do with violence.....maybe you should work for fox news.

Does San Francisco really pay for transsexual surgery? Still allow the homeless to accost the tourists for change, around the Fisherman's Wharf?

<quoted text>As a child yes. As an adult no. Your ignorance and racist discussions only display the level of stupidity racist people have. For any person to condone what the man said that was clearly meant toward that child's race and ambitions then they need to seek God. I guarantee if it was your child you would be at that school raising cane! As mentioned previously, I am not a democrat or republican. I follow the laws of God. I am not perfect, in fact if you and I were to see each other and I had a biracial child and you called them a racial slur, I would very well crack your jaw open. I do not agree with Obamacare, or homosexual marriage. But I am not going ton say Obama is the worse President. I think that goes to Bush Jr. Let's not forget, he got us in this mess, Obama just can't get us out! I love being white but I also love other races and cultures as God would want.

How many levels when blacks attack and beat up old and female Jews multiple times and Holder ignores the hate crimes against the Jews. Drug Heil.

<quoted text>This has nothing to do with knock out games or hate crimes. This just about right and wrong and that teacher is wrong. Stop looking for excuses to your ignorance of a racist mind. Do I agree with the fact there are racist acts done to whites by blacks? He'll yes! I've been a victim but it doesn't mean I advocate racist acts to be done in return. And this is a teenager and high school shapes the way a person's mind works. There are racist acts done by whites to blacks and other races everyday. My brother works for a police station in PA. He has arrested white men and women at least 20 times since 2003 in regards to racist acts and the white men and women almost beat a 30 year old black man to death because they felt that too many blacks were moving into their neighborhood. No hate crime ever filed. Another case of a beautiful young Cristian black girl who was raped by two 22 year old men during a study session at a college study room that had no cameras. We'll all the local white people said she asked for it despite the bruising, bleeding and screaming that some students said they heard down the hall but thought it was just someone clowning around. After the boys got off, one of them went to MySpace and confessed and asked for the girls forgiveness. Guess what?? No one had anything to say then. Racism happens from all sides, don't pretend to be so blind to it. Ask yourself how you would feel if your son told you he wanted to marry a black girl. Would you be ok with it or would you be against it? See I am a Dr. That studies the human mind and theory of thinking. I could determine more things about you than some of your family could by simply having a conversation face to face.
If he is so fragile because he is black and only because of an insult, you better keep him.
