Issues of race and racism exist everywhere in all manner of groups, individuals and situations. That is the truth. Some people accept this fact and try to make each day a little better, some people obsess over race and compound the problems. Your obsession is your problem - and it appears to be the size of an elephant
Yes, you Libtards do. You think all people of color must be Democrats and if they are not, you attack them. Justice Clarence Thomas is a classic example. Another is that black athlete I just mentioned.
"is [Griffin] a brother, or is he a cornball brother?”" is a racist statement but becuse it was made by a Liberal, you won't acknowledge that it is. Sad, very sad.

Another example of Libtarian RACISM. How dare a man with dark skin not define himself as as an African-American. You Libtards do know that not all Africans are Negros, don't you? Most of the people from Northern Africa are ....... Caucasians!!! But if a man with dark skin color does not tote the Liberal agenda .... why he is an Uncle Tom!

"Griffin may have made the biggest mistake in his young life by saying that he did not want “to be defined by the color of [his] skin.” To add insult to injury, he went on to say,“I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I don’t have to be defined by that.”"

How dare YOU be so flagranly flaming (Rogue tm reg'd) ignorant? How dare YOU tell any group how to label or call themselves? Are you some kind of authority? Yes, "negro" used to be THE word in slavery and colonial days. Whites invented the word as they did the N word. So did "crazy" and "retarded" and "mentally retarded" disappear. Even Léopold Sédar Senghor, that great African statesman and poet and member of the French Assembly and Académie française, wrote about la "Négritude" when that word was popular. Now the blacks or Afro-African Americans no longer want to be called "negro". Respect that, as should you, and don't play the expert and all-knowing humanatarian papa figure. Do some studying first, lots of it, visit Africa maybe, then maybe you can talk.
How dare I do what? And what is an "Afro-African"? "Afro" is a hair style!
And as far as "mentally retarded" is concerned, in 2002 our Supreme Court used that term in Atkins v. Virginia. Now I would not call an individual mentally retarded but mentally retarded is a medical term. Get over it!

A classic example was the job I had for the last 18 months I was in FORSCOM in the Army. At the same time I was doing my job there was someone in PersCom (Personnel Command) doing the very same job. The only difference was that PersCom could actually do something and all I did was prepare briefings for my general.
Oh, what I did was specialize in Aviator and EOD shortages. Do you know the Army has five-man EOD detachments all over the place and half are not even on military reservations. It seems all the time they are disposing of military munitions that are on civilian property. Like hand grenades that you great uncle brought back from WWII!
Did you remember the article that I posted a few days ago that was about a Nazi German fully-automatic assault machine gun that the lady's relative brought back from WWII!
Officers stunned when woman drops off $40,000 WWII German rifle to be destroyed in police buy-back scheme
Gun brought to the U.S. by American soldier and passed to his daughter
It was developed in 1944, holds a 30-round magazine and can shoot 500 rounds per minute

Are you serious? I ask "Grateful you supply reliable statistics comparing govt supervisors ratio to private sector supervisors" and you come up with a personal army anecdote? Do you enjoy being ridiculed or what?

And then, to push said ridicule even further, you come up with the WW2 German rifle that the woman was disposing of and the officers, who incidentally are govt workers, who told her to hold off, it was worth $40,000. Well, well, govt workers who seemed to know what they were doing. How about that? Wonder how many supervisors they had?

Get serious, Rogue, because right now you should be blushing and hiding. I asked that you "supply reliable statistics comparing govt supervisors ratio to private sector supervisors." Not a personal anecdote and irrelevant story about a rifle.

Save time, just say you don't have the numbers and that you made another statement that you have no way of backing up. What is that, the 200th in the last year?

You're a child. Afro defines African. Afro hairstyle is and african kind of hairstyle. Stop playing children's games.

As to the Supreme Court, bet you they won't call it that again. Mentally retarded is no longer used by medical professionals and people in the know.

Now I have never heard the term "cornball brother" before but it does sound racist in the context that he used, "is [Griffin] a brother, or is he a cornball brother?”".
To me it is inappropriate to call some one a "brother" while not calling other black men "brother" too. It is like when you Libtards claim that one president is "my president" and not use that term for a Republican president.
Yep, Libtards, divide and conquer. It is like a flock of sheep being divided by a pack of wolves.

Oh, the term I frequently use is "ghetto person" which does not denote one's race just like "red neck" does not denote race. You can have a black redneck too but I would just call him a red neck.
And just like all people who live in ghettos are Ghetto people, people who live in rural areas are red necks.

Oh, my sister is a supervisor at a light bulb factory but that does not stop her from getting on a forklift when it is needed. You just go to any union shop and you will see forklift operators and the supervisors and the supervisor not only will not get on a a fork lift, he can't because of .... union contracts! And almost all governments are UNIONIZED!!!

I'm not American so of course he is not my president. Were I American, ALL 44 presidents would've been MY president, because election result reflects the will of the people, of the majority. I don't particularly like my prime minister. He represents everything I am not. Conservative, dinosaur-like, yet I want him to do well as that will profit everyone. And when he fails, I blame him, sure, and I criticize, but the failure does not make me rejoice, just to get back at him. Know what I mean? Finally, he was elected by the majority of electors, so, like it or not, he's MY prime minister. I don't see anyone else who was elected in his place, and neither do you as far as your president goes.

You are derailed.I asked for numbers, govt vs pvt enterprise supervisor-wise. In your preceding reply, you supply a personal anectdote, TWO persons. Then ramble on about a WW2 German carbine. As if that was not enough, you return with the above post, another personal ancecdote from your sister. Are you mad? Why do you continue making outrageous claims that you cannot back up?

Incidentally, didn't you say her light bulb fatory had been moved to China?
