Arnold, a struggle is a struggle. Does it matter why people were discriminated against whether it was because of the clothes they wore, the old beat car they drove up in, or we were the laughing stock because it was apparent we didn't hardly know how to order in a restaurant because we went so little? Probably the only reason we were allowed in restaurants where we lived is because my grandparents were wealthy, otherwise we'd been treated just the same as you, "no tables available". I think discrimination in a restaurant based off color was just as wrong as discrimination because we were poor. Unlike you, I don't carry around the baggage of being poor growing up and how we were treated and you can't get out of the past. Let it go, move on and leave the past in the past. Your race hasn't cornered the market on discrimination because of skin color and you need to get over it.
So you were allowed in the resturants, but somehow think you know what Arnold went through? Arnold parents could have had ten times the wealth of your grandparents and it would not have mattered a bit, he still would have been denied. It does matter why you are being kept out of the resturant.
You just don't get it and likely never will. Typical republican.

Black kids of today have many prisons to free themselves of. Many continue to think freedom is "how cool you dress" and this is a typical reaction to poverty. When I see "the cool" black kids at school who are wearing the cool sneakers and the expensive hoody, I understand their need to give an appearance, but I advise them that they will never be free until they truly work hard and strive to get an education that will provide these things for a lifetime. I tell them my story to try and get through. Education will always be the key to success and is worth every hard ship you have to endure. Some see it, but many do not and like most kids, black and white, only live for the moment. The stuggle continues on.
Brilliant.

If she had ran against Obama, it would make the democratic agenda look weak. It is bad enough to have primaries in general fighting your own party teammembers.
Rarely does one run against an incumbant of his own party. Despite what you think about Obama, his base thinks he is doing pretty good considering what he was left with by the republicans.
Only if his base was severely disgruntled would it be likely someone of his party would oppose him.
You say Obama did nothing for the economy, but I would certainly differ. I think he saved the American economy from collapse. Far from doing nothing.
Unless something in America goes in a different direction than it is right now, I see no reason the democrats will lose next time out. Well I guess unless some radical wins the primaries. Hillary is no radical, so if she wins the primary, I think she will win the whitehouse.
BTW, keep in mind I predicted Mitt would win the primaries when you guys doubted this.
This is a strange conversation for us to be having??? The difference in Hillary/Bill and I say this because Bill is her strongest asset, and Obama is their style in leadership. I believe Hillary was as much responsible for Bill's popularity as Bill was. Bill Clinton understood compromise, Obama is clueless; Bill Clinton IMO was not arrogant and his educational background exceeded Obama's and Bill was nobody's fool; Bill Clinton worked with both sides of the aisle and didn't say sophmoric things to divide such as Obama has, Bill Clinton took a shakey economy and worked with both sides to get it on it's feet, Obama is hell bent on winning with no regard to who or how many people will feel the brunt of his "need to win" and most of all Bill Clinton didn't run around apologizing to every country about the U.S. Bill Clinton governed this country with maturity (with the exception of his stupid, schoolboy skirt chasing) and I think he and Hillary were calculated and she made as many decisions as he did about the direction of this country. I'm a republican and I never had too many negatives to say about Clinton, he took the job of being POTUS seriously and unlike Obama, he made the job of POTUS about the country not him. Hillary is a smart woman, but she's tired, needs to rest and rebrand herself and who knows, maybe she just wants to be out of the public lime light and enjoy her senior years being a private citizen. She's been in politics for a lot of years.

It was right and justified because they didn't want to get to know you or be your friend. The federal government injected its will and tried to force it. You will never get a square peg to fit a triangle hole. You wants interests and desires are completely different than mine, right? Then why the federal law than requires a proportional amount of blacks fill certain jobs or schools? Diversity? Where is your or mikes or Allen's tolerance for people who don't want to get to know you, exchange information with or do business with you?
As I have said before, my prejudice comes from seeing good men passed over for jobs and promotions all because the HR dept was trying to meet affirmative action quotas, instead of hiring the best candidate for the gig.
As if we are to believe you were not prejudiced before you ever witnessed this. Not that I even believe anyone you know was passed over due to affirmative action. Likely your buddies were just morons like yourself.

Affirmative action is result of people like yourself and your firm.

<quoted text>I do not think Arnold was talking about wealth. He was talking about the freedom to eat were you could afford.
There were no rules to prevent your family from eating in any resturant in town.
For you to claim you had the same shoes to walk in is pure ignorance.
Arnold could have had the nicest of clothes, and still be looked down upon. You just don't get it.
You have no idea how to put yourself in others shoes. This is a trend I note of most republicans.
No Mike, you don't get it and furthermore, I'm willing to bet as Arnold, I've got some years on you and being poor was no different than being black. Arnold was judged off his skin color and we were off our clothes and maybe you've heard the statement "white trash", that's what poor people were called when I was young. It had nothing to do with how you lived but with what you had. So don't tell me a damn thing about being black like Arnold, you're a white man, wish all you want but you're still white and it's apparent you don't know what it's like to be poor growing up. However, as poor as we were education was a priority, that's why I never had to take a job in a smokey bar to make ends meet.

All races not just blacks have been enslaved since written time. You need to learn the read all History. Blacks are enslaving people today in places around the world. Hell in Africa one tribe is still killing another and anyone who gets in their way. They force women into prostitution and kids to kill for them. So donít give me you boohoo poor me crap.
This is America, not Africa.
No other race has been enslaved in America in such great numbers as black persons. Even after being free, they still were no allowed to be equal.
This changed relatively recently. Read some history. This is not ancient history, this is American history. Some of it relatively recent American history. In my time on this earth history. In my country.

Why do republicans keep acting as if black slavery and discrimination was not unusual?

I do know being poor has its hardships, but I seriously doubt they compare to those of being black in Arnolds day.
I am not likely much younger than you. I have seen quite a bit of discrimination. It continues even today.

The way you blow off the racism as if it were the same as being poor only shows me how republicans justify their agendas by twisting the realities.

It is no wonder you do not condemn Silver for his continual racist views and hateful language towards Arnold.

Thanks for reminding me why I should never reveal any personal information to you.

By his own admission, will work in a smokey bar instead of getting an education like you and I did to get a better job. Then has the audacity to call someone a liar when he has contradicted himself a minimum of three times about smoking and how it bothers him, then it doesn't bother him and then it does. Geez. I'm like you, when the man goes off on me, I just consider the limited source a compliment because he's clueless.
Silver, do me a favor, I know I used a curse word or three earlier, don't use the "c" word. I'm not a saint, but I hate that word.

Not what I admitted at all on a few of your claims here. Now keep up the lies like a typical republican. Now make some more personal attacks, because it is clear you have no substance on the issues.

Hey, as long as you do not use the C word, you can call Arnold and I anything you wish. Well, according to Bacon morality. She gets here moral code from the bible, somewhere.

Oh let's set this straight. On a personal level, I don't like the word and quite frankly, as long as I don't have to hear it or read it, I don't care what he calls you. That's not a bible code, that's a Bacon code.

You asked me "Do you think God will view this favorably?" I gave you God's words about us thinking for Him. No way of dancing around that. I'm not in the business of thinking for God.
Just follow what I say, not what I do like a good sheep. Don't try to understand my logic, because it does not make sense.

Religion sure has a way of of everything. Now I can see why your morals are so poor and your empathy is lacking.
