> NAACP states that "Lincolnton will heed Dr. King’s call at the end of his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech to go home and organize."

Better get the quote right this time:

I thought "colored people" was a no-no. If I run around talking about colored people that will be bad. If they run around calling themselves colored people that's ok.

Sheeeesh.

Time for the White Entertainment Channel and Miss White America. I'm tired of all the double standards.

So what do you want to call it, then? National Association for the Advancement of African Americans? "NAAAA"?

I don't want to "call it" anything. I'm simply commenting on the fact that calling a black person "colored" these days is deemed politically incorrect. Way politically incorrect. Yet on the other hand the organization for the advancement of black people calls itself "colored". If I walk over to Hillcrest and say "colored people" out loud, I'd get shot. Flip side, it's ok for them to have a whole organization.

Double standard
Double standard
Double standard

Again, bring on Miss White America.

Based on one comment? That just show what a horribly sheltered life you've led. In any case, what's so loony about the goddamn TRUTH!
What's so looney? Oh basically that this isn't really about what a color is or isn't, if white is a color or not. Afro Americans apparently prefer to be called Afro Americans or blacks. I say this only because it has become politically incorrect to address someone of that heritage as colored. It is assumed to be black typically and the NAACP is typically addressing issues of black people.

If you want to call white a color go ahead. Carrying on a conversation with you must be a real yuk a minute. You're still looney and that's the truth.

A little more truth, the NAACP is a very old organization founded before colored was consider bad form. Therefore I submit the discussion is moot or, if you prefer idiotic.
Yep and here you are right in the middle of it. Several times. LOL

You are so right and this marching needs to stop. There are so many blacks and whites going together; getting married and having children that within time there will be no black and white civilization; they will be all brown. I don't mean any offense but Martin Luther King's dream came true! It is no dream anymore and all this needs to stop. I think blacks and whites get along good now. They fight in wars together; backing one another and are like brother's to one another.

The difference is I got the point from the beginning and did not think it an idiotic dialog. You, on the other hand, deem this idiotic and yet remain, Looney tunes.... Maybe you should go back to working on the color spectrum. You know the primaries, right?

What do you do when you're not on here showing what a village idiot you are, picking nits and splitting hairs? Oh, and tearing the wings off of houseflies?

You are such a pathetic little character. Take your meds and a nap.

If you think about it, we are ALL from Africa. Humans evolved in Arica then moved/migrated though out the world. How can the black community coin that phase when most of the black community have never been nor lived on that continent? I am willing to bet I have spent more time there then most of the people that claim it as a born right.
