<quoted text>So by your understanding, I should look at all white people like racist for the ignorance of some. Is that what you're saying? I should definitely look at you like a racist, given the fact that all your role models were self proclaimed racist!, right?
No, I'm saying you should conduct yourself in your actions and appearance that demand respect.

There are plenty of white men who are looked at with suspicion by other whites because they emit a sense of being suspicious.

Ignorance doesn't have a race or color. Self-pride doesn't either. Each one of us has control over one of them. There's nothing any of us can do about the other.

Fortunately, ignorance only exists in a small minority.

Why focus on what can't be changed and, instead, on what can?

Most Americans want unity. It's people like Al Sharpton who don't. Ever thought about that?

Its obvious to everybody else that just a black guy getting elected POTUS was enough to drive the racism that's been simmering just under the surface into the full light of day.

It takes two to tango. He couldn't inflame a "race war" without racists.

You notice it's only republicans who get raked over the coals for alleged inappropriate conduct even if it can't be proven. And many of them step down voluntarily or under pressure from other republicans.
But Clinton, Weiner, Spitzer, Frank and Filner - just to name a few off the top of my head - are defended to the teeth by liberals and remain in office untouched or are reelected.
Can brainwashed people be any more clueless? No, guess they can't. Nevermind.
Liberals defend theirs and you defend yours. That's the reality not the Fox spin.

I hadn't read that far down, that was funny.
In my discussion with Galt I'm liking the idea of bloated city governments going bankrupt, maybe that's what the libertarian revolution will look like.
Bloated city governments will go bankrupt, because they lack the taxing power of state and federal government. When people leave and property values drop, the party is over.

Great opportunity, but with lots of pain along the way. No pain, no gain.

Anybody still noticing we're above 7.5% unemployment FOR MORE THAN FOUR AND A HALF YEARS?

Lord Obama is a master at redirection. And his Useful Idiots, the Socialist/Democrat voters with their gnat-sized attention spans and miniscule IQ's are always there for him.
The actual unemployment rate is something like 15% to 17%. The statistics don't include those who stopped looking and applying for benefits. That number is in the millions.

Yesterday's speech was completely unnecessary.

If the demonstrators were listening, Obama was trying to tell them that it was over, that no federal charges would be approved.

But he lacks the leadership to say so directly.

So, cities across the country will be disrupted for nothing.

“I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?” the president questioned Socratically.“And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style...
Unfortunately, this president, as usual, didn't know what he was talking about. The Stand Your Ground law wasn't introduced in this case.

Maybe if he would learn the facts before he speaks, he'd be a little more credible.

If he wants to make the issue about changing this law in 20 states, then he should speak directly about doing that. But to tie that issue in with this case where it doesn't belong and speaking out of turn, he just creates more confusion and anger.

How Florida's Racist Past Helped Kill Trayvon
The state's black history provides clues to why George Zimmerman confronted the unarmed teen.
http://www.theroot.com/views/how-floridas-rac...
Violating George Zimmerman's Civil Rights, George Zimmerman was mulishly slandered, MSNBC altering news report, railroading George Zimmerman for money, power and ratings...

George is NOT the poster boy of racism!!

George Zimmerman will be a very rich man when he gets done with his winning lawsuit against MSNBC, Al Sharpton and your demokkkratic Party...

Go George!!!

It's the culture...

I know. But you can't mention anything complicated like "underemployment" or how the rate doesn't include those that have given up or simply transitioned into permanent Social Security "disability" because it hurts the tiny brains of the S/D readers on this forum.

You got that right and that is obivious what Jessie Jackson Sr., Al Shartpon and the NAACP are doing encouraging a race war but what is BS is that you never heard a word from either the Jessie Jackson Sr., Al Shartpon or the NAACP or Coverage like the National News Media did of the George Zimmerman Trial when the trial began over Christopher Cervini who was a White 16 year old from Greece NY that was shot and killed with his brother beside him by a black man named Roderick Scott who came out of his house with gun in his hand and he was in fear of his life he claimed and the Christopher Cervini again who was white did not even touch Roderick Scott and Roderick Scott was found not guilty.
