Name some black people who've said that only whites are capable of racism, please. And even if they had, how would that excuse your own dishonesty and projection?
Better get 'Weezy to give you a clue, George, that dry-cleaning fluid's eating away your brain...LOL

"Thus one can hold to race prejudice - defined as antipathy towards members of a racial group based on that groups racial identify - without being a racist for the simple fact that not all groups have the same access to power. If I am a member of a racial group that does not control the dominant social institutions - that is, I do not enjoy structural power - and that is disadvantaged by the workings of prevailing social relations, then I cannot translate my race prejudice into racism. So saying that a black man is racist because he holds bigoted attitudes concerning white people depends on a faulty definition of racism."

"Only blacks have suffered racist ­oppression from slavery, colonialism and ­apartheid.

Therefore, racism defines a specific act of oppression against a specific group who have suffered as a result of their skin ­colour."

What are Fred Phelps and the WBC afraid of? Rainbows? Unicorns? A flaming pink queer apocalypse? I attempted to address this with a portrait of the good reverend on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/03/fr... Drop in and let me know what you think!

Fred Phelps and family seem to suffer from oppositional personality disorder (or make others suffer from it, to be more truthful, they rather seem to be enjoying themselves). If no one agrees with you, you must be right. That's why they are so extreme that they provoke even the people you usually think of when you think of fundamentalists.
If Phelps gave up religion tomorrow, he'd just find another issue that he'd take some absurd position on then condemn everyone who dared think differently.

I think not. Those quotes are from blacks, or whatever the PC police are calling them today.

You're a racist, so who cares what you think in any case?

That word has no meaning in the 21st century.
