It's a shame "that" many blacks are racist. Just a shame.
The 90 percent black support Al Gore received should dispel that notion Mr. Liars. If you further wish to display your ignorance try running Allen West or Herman Cain.

Most people would agree that slavery is an abomination. And racism is also. But you seem to think that revers racism is okay. Why? Racism is racism and all it does is promote more racism
When I joined the Army I wanted to fly medivac and I did from 1975-77 in Hawaii. But in 1980 when I wanted to go on to another medivac assignment I was told no.
You see, female Army pilots could not fly combat missions so they were taking up many of the medivac slots so the Army told me I could go to a Cobra assignment. Yep, if you are going to be an Army aviator, you should be able to accept ANY pilot assignment. I was not interested in flying attack helicopters but I was able to get into Chinooks where I spent my last nine years in the Army.
So, it does not matter if you are a female or black or, etc., when you are given priority assignment over non-females, non-blacks, etc. it is still wrong!!!
But you progressives believe in SOCIAL justice which is not real justice because if promotes reverse discrimination! YOU are the racists and the sexists!
There’s no such thing as reverse racism Rogue. Like rape is rape, racism is racism.

We did not invent slavery, to be sure. But what we certainly did was to ignore our own principles in the Declaration, which had said that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..." and that all men had the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
While slavery is evil in all countries, it is exceptionally evil for a country that held that "all men are created equal" and that all men had the right to liberty, to hold people in slavery.
To do so required a kind of magical thinking, that black people were not human, and hence did not have the rights specified by the Declaration. But, since even well before the Civil War it was obvious that blacks were performing complex tasks and tending to the children of whites, it was obvious that they were human. So the institution of slavery in the USA was obviously something entirely different from that in Roman times etc, when the losers in wars became slaves and that was that.
We are not specially evil. But we ought to be specially embarrassed and shocked by our history, and to do in the future everything that we can to make sure that all men are treated equally.
As well articulated as any I’ve heard or read. Great post Ellen.

Being "unspoken" does not mean they are "UNwritten".
If you read the First Amendment is says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"! If you notice is says "Congress" and says nothing about STATES!
Many of us believe that the USSC has way overstepped its bounds by interpreting the 2nd Amendment to also restricts states. That's is what Progressive judges do, stick their noses where they do not belong!
And which other freedoms would you withhold from people who don't agree with you? Sounds like you're advocating a kind of dictatorship, not a republic or a democracy. Who gets to be the king in your fantasyland?

What the hell is "reverse discrimination"? By definition, it would be the exact OPPOSITE of discrimination, or a complete inclusion of all people. Your attempt at justification of racism is ludicrous and laughable.

I agree, slavery is an abomination but no matter how they got here, blacks should be grateful for being an American. Do you know why they call Africa the "Dark Continent'?
http://clicksomemore.blogspot.com/2012/10/tel...
My God, Africa has gone nowhere for two thousand years. If it were not for Europeans, Africa would be even darker!!!
I suppose like Sarah Palin Rogue thinks Africa is a country.

“In the past ten years, growth in Africa has surpassed that of East Asia. Data suggest parts of the continent are now experiencing fast growth. The amount of growth that has been occurring is comparable or greater to that of the Asian Tiger, Latin Puma markets, gaining them the new nickname, the Lion Markets. The World Bank reports the economy of Sub-Saharan African countries grew at rates that match or surpass global rates”

In an astounding feat of moronic intransigence, the GOP filibustered the appointment of the US Public Printer by President Barack Hussein Obama.

I bet Rogue Bumpkin has a fantastic story about why that was necessary because socialism something something.

The First Amendment and God
...

Less well known, in fact all but unknown, is the postamble:

Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth. In Witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names.
...

Thus, when the states ratified the Constitution, they were affirming and acknowledging within the Constitution the existence of God and specifically Jesus Christ. This acknowledgement is also given in many of the states’ ratification messages.

Ratification of the Constitution included the following words:

Delaware:“…on the seventeenth day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven…”

Jacques,
Did you know that Arabic does not have the letter "P" in its alphabet?
What is the significance of that, you ask. I will tell you what the significance of that is.
The significance is that Palestine, or more properly Palaestina, is a Greco-Roman word.
The Arabic pronunciation is "Falastin"
Let me reiterate that. Palestine is not an Arabic word, but rather has its origin in Latin.
