Whenever I see her posts, I scroll past them also as she is stuck on the same subject ad nauseam (black men bothering her). I know this forum is infested with racists whose main goal is to disrupt any discussions of merit here. She is one of the most verbose of the bunch, She lives in some kind of alternate reality to many of the rest of us. With her dislike of blacks, why she is here is a mystery to many of us....smh....
I don't think there are any real racists in here, real racists don't even have discussions with people of other races. There is a lot of trolling and tit for tat but not much real racism.

I'm not a feminazi, and you still did not answer my question. So you think some White women are supposed to be abused, but that everyone has to worship the almighty BM and not call him the N-word even when he proves himself to be one by his actions?

Just an aside from your very valid discussion:
The reason we call them N****s, is because they ACT like N****s....

I do not have time to worry about that crap. The fact that you keep asking it proves that you are a feminazi. Look up feminazi.

Any president who is evil enough to bomb the Great Man Made River deserves to be impeached.( http://humanrightsinvestigations.org/2011/07/... ) And any voter who votes to re-elect such a bastard deservers to be disenfranchised.

No, that is not what I am, and you saying that is no better than someone using the N-word. Both are slurs. There has to be a reason why in the US, a land where men and women are considered to be equal, why BM are allowed to abuse, harass, and target women of every race, but that WM are far less likely to do so.(Note I said less likely, not that they are perfect or don't.)

That doesn't speak to their true nature or the causes. There needs to be a word that is allowed to be used that is ten times as offensive as "thug."

There is no "voter suppression" in NC either, BTW. Just requiring everyone to have valid photo ID is not racist. In fact, it should be federal law. I do think they should keep the early voting stuff since not everyone can make it to the polls on election day, but that isn't racist if they stop or reduce that. You should not have the right to vote multiple times as a crude form of Affirmative Action.

Remember, stalking people and posting to those who asked you not to post to them is a form of mental illness, if not bad discipline or a lack of self-control.

Just curious, what does one call it when voting locations are reduced in number, days allotted for voting are reduced in number and making access to polling places more difficult? I have to believe any reasonable person would think that it's safe to call that suppression, to say the least. Voters have experienced this in North Carolina as well as in other places, just so you know.

It's a very clever strategy. Deny the existence of racial problems that fall in your favor and label those who are being discriminated against as simply racist for complaining. As there are people who still, all evidence to the contrary, think Fox is non-partisan and honest, believe indeed that the civil rights laws ended racism. But if that were true, laws against burglary would have eliminated the need for companies like the ADT burglar alarm company. No folks, unfortunately racism is alive in America and seems to be reviving quite well in it's traditional region.
Agreed! Racism is alive and well in America. The streets of Ferguson are filled with raging racists regularly whose only motivation is to avenge the death of a violent criminal just because he was the right race and the cop who shot him was the wrong race. The only people who oppose voter ID are criminals and their patrons.

Really? Don't you guys have early voting? Here in NM it's much easier to vote than it is to get a drivers license. Unless you are an illegal alien in which case there is a special procedure to help you get a license. Here the illegal alien vote goes to the democrats and the dead vote goes to the republicans.

White Liberals only care about Black votes (not voters) and their Liberal Agenda.

Many white liberals see most blacks as crude, unintelligent, un-informed,‘tools’, to be used and manipulated at will. And this is how they do it:

First, the white liberal media creates or stoke the flames of racial division and hostility, then the white liberal elite along with a few,'elite black-tools' swoop in to save the day and give the appearance that they are protecting and defending black people against the "real" racists.

As a result, their "bravery and tolerance" makes pliable, black people feel special and honored that the nice, white liberals came to their defense. To show their appreciation, the pliable blacks shuffle off to the voting booth to vote Democrat, without knowing anything or very little about the candidate that they voted for.

As for the white liberals, if retaining political power and implementing their agenda (gay marriage, open borders, socialism) means having to publicly align themselves with pliable blacks, so be it.

Yes, it’s an evil, manipulative, and vicious cycle, but it's also very effective. Sony’s Pascal & Rudin got caught laughing at pliable blacks, but trust me; they weren’t the only ones laughing behind the scene.
