Black people are the most racist I have ever met. Yes, I have lived and worked with and made friends with blacks. But , to say whites are racist is wrong. People are racist. What I get tired of, is if you don't agree with Obama for instance, you are racist. Pathetic. The race card is overplayed in our society. I wouldn't like a scummy black person nor a scummy white person. It is the person not the race.

Why should they hate us??? You know all races have their KKK. What about Black Panthers?? Come on!!! All races have their hate groups. I think we are all created equal but this stuff about how bad whites are is a crock. Blacks had slaves too!!! I never had a slave so why hate me? You talk about growing up. You should consider that yourself and quit the filthy talk.

I am not racist myself. I am attracted to Black women. I have even asked one out but she didn't like the idea I grew up as a farmer. Don't know what that was an issue. I just get aggravated when I see a white woman with a black kid driving a nice car pays with a Link card.

Is anyone here chitchattin remember the signs at the edges of town????
**Yes, I still rember the signs warning minorities but mainly African Americans/Blacks not to let the sun, set on their butts. in Franklin counity. When I enlisted in the US Army in the mid 70's, the signs were still there. I was born & raised mainly in West Frankfort, Illinois. Just South of Benton (6-Miles). Their Racist, bigot views also included Catholics, no I did not stutter; Catholics+Jews did not fit the Southern Baptists Bible thumping, Holy rolling, Fire & Brimstone, Speaking in Tongue, One & only Church Services. Along with the tent revivals where a traveling Evangelist brought out snakes. Who knows why but a special mineral filled dirt was eaten. Even today Franklin county, especially W. Frankfort have no Blacks living or attending school. All you need to do is watch the only Hollywood film, I know of which was filmed in Franklin County: "Poor White Trash" if you have doubts, feel free to look up the film with Jaimie Pressly as one of theactors. I am just glad, lucky on leaving the day I graduated High School. I have many relatives still ther & Racist as ever.

I work in Marion, and every time I tell a black dude where I'm from, it's "oh...you're not racist are you?"

Where does this come from? I know that I'm not racist, and all of my friends aren't racist...why does Benton have this reputation?

T-ville, Royalton, and quite afew others really ARE racist, but they don't have this reputation

Anyone know where this came from?
I heard a long time ago Benton had KKK meetings

most of the women in Benton have slept with many black men. If the racist coal mining scumbags knew they were kissing the mouth that had blown a black man they would have to go lick a dogs ass to get the taste out of their mouth's...lol. PS, I am not racist...I hate everyone.:)

I think its funny how they can have "black neighborhoods" but if whites call there's a white neighborhood" it's somehow racist.
On the news they talk about "black dominated" cities like Harvey, IL or Queens NY, but if they referred to Benton as a "white dominated" city it would somehow be racist.
Where's the NAAWP (National Association for the Advancement of White People)? What can't I watch WET (White Entertainment Television) on cable? The most racist people in the country are the blacks.
I'm not racist, I just hate stupid, lazy, ignorant criminals whether they be black or white. It's nobody's fault but their own that the majority of black people are stupid, lazy, ignorant criminals.
WET is television as a whole 90% of Actors on television are white. You're an idiot.

The Black Panthers had white members, educate yourself fool.

If you are referring to the New Black Panther Party, the original Black Panther Party have went out of their way to say they are in no way connected to them
