You do seem like a person that is at least willing to make peace if given the chance. I will give you that chance.<quoted text>
I am not one to nitpick over the smallest of details but this site has a tendency to put one on the defensive and, you cannot deny, that you can come off pretty harshly to people yourself. But setting that aside and getting to the heart of the problem here (at least giving you some background on my issues with aisling), I have tried repeatedly to be civil to her and discuss issues but, the minute one disagrees with her,'the claws come out' as she puts it and the name calling starts. Just look at last night on the other GZ thread (which, by the way, I left a post for you there, too). Who started with the nasty names first?....mmmm hmmmmm. Little Ms 'Hold Her Own'. I have a low tolerance for racism and she can't hide the fact that she is, so that is strike one already. I speak civilly to many racists on this site and we agree to disagree if we can find common ground other places. I believe there is always hope for everyone. I recently gave aisling another chance, even after she bashed my deceased daughter in tandem with another poster. Aisling is a coward to me and always will be. When she is losing a debate, she either enlists others to help her attack or she runs off and comes back with her weak taunts later. She has created more than one screen name with my names in them and she thinks this makes her a winner. My question is 'what's there to win', this is only Topix, for goodness sakes? I hope that we can at least be civil from this point forward. Thank you for your acknowledgment of my ex's military service and your proud service also. Have a great rest of the weekend.....
The first time I ever came to Topix I never intended to go racial but right off the bat ,they looked at my avatar and the fact that I am southern and called me every name in the book and I will admit that it was my weakness that I let weak minded people pull me down to their level. It's easy ,I know but I'm really not that way in real life. I treat people the way they treat me.
I'll wipe the slate clean if you will. You treat me nice and I'll treat you nice but I will warn you up front ,I am not a racist. I may very well be a "bigot" in SOME respects but all the AA's in here will swear to you that I am a racist. They will throw pieces of threads from the past ,not all of the thread but just the parts THEY want you to see to try to prove I am but they will conveniently leave out all the vile stuff they say about White people. Like MDJ saying shes such a fine person when she stands by and has no problem with a punk telling a guy he hopes his kids get cancer.
Im not a racist but I refuse to kiss black ass or any ass.
Just judge me by how I treat you and not how I treat anybody else on here because you may not know my history with that person or what they may have said to me before and I will do the same with you.
I'll just stay out of your's and Aislings feud.
Aisling is a good person. If you reach out to her she will be your friend if she thinks you're not trying to pull one over on her but like me she is not quick to trust. You guys just misunderstand each other.
