150 years after the Civil War, race still haunts us

Apr 8, 2011 Full story: www.sacbee.com 325

One hundred and fifty years ago, on April 12, 1861, the first shots of the Civil War were fired. A century and a half later, the issue of race still haunts us.

Back then, most everyone understood that America's bloodiest war - more than 623,000 dead - had its roots in race. But race is not a subject Americans like to think about anymore.

Yes, I am a Klansman of the True Invisible Empire-Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. I am known by most people as Saber Fox,(a nickname that I received as a youngster that just won't go away, so I finally relented and "kept" it). Unfortunately I believe that you are mistaking me for someone else. My children have long since grown and started lives & families of their own, and the church we attended is very familiar with and comfortable with my Klan affiliation.
Thank you for your continuing contribution to Earthicide.

Remain Separate and Segregate, and there is no worry about conflict for as long as one does not try and infringe upon the other.
Cowards begs for mercy. The courageous provides it.
For the Christian, death is just a blink of an eye, only an insignificant part of life not to be dwelled upon.
Uhhh...we only have ONE (1) planet to live on!
Your ideas will only lead to humanity's self-destruction!
But we thank you for helping us bring on Earthicide a lil bit faster...good job.

Blacks say that whites are racist. Whites say that blacks are racist. American racism is rooted in the American enslavement of Africans and racism as we know it today won't go away until:
1. Whites are not the majority in America.
2. Wealth is even distributed amoung all races.
3. Institutional hierachies are not dominated by whites (i.e. business, governments, education, Entertainment, military, etc).
4. Black and white cultures merge so much that there's very little distinction between the two.
When those things happen, there won't be a need for the Jacksons and Sharptons and NAACP. Won't be a need for affirmative action. There won't be a need for a BET or TV One. It won't happen in my lifetime but maybe my grandkids can experience an America that's not full of racism and the cynical people it's created.
Obama no more killed Bin Laden than Al Gore invented the internet. Just two morons taking credit that they had absolutely nothing to do with it other than preventing both from happening on numerous occasions and reluctantly allowing those who are doers to do their job.

Presidenty Obama had everything to do ith killing Bin Laden; even as Bush II and Rich had everything to do with lowering our guard to allow the 9/11/2001 attack on tyhe WTC.

And even as Bush II had everything to do with allowing Bin Laden to escape at Tora Bora.

President Obama ordred the pursuit, investigation, tracking, and the operation itself which found and eliminated Bin Ladwen.

You are a moronic, idiot liar.

And, Al Gore never, ever claimed to "invent the internet." That is a Rupert Murdoch lie, and you are a fool liar for repeating lies.
Gore, in the Senate, had a great deal to do with establishing the funding for, and pushing through the legislation that created the internet.
Gore could be considered the father of the internet, for his strong, early support, not for a technical expertise he never claimed. You liar, you.

It is admirable how people like you love to claim that Bush kept us safe in spite of 9/11 about object to when O claims credit for killing Osama
