Someone finally said it.
How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans,
Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc.
And then there are just White Americans.
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You Call me "White boy," "Cracker," "Honkey,"
"Whitey," "Caveman" .. And that's OK.
But when I call you, N*****, Towel head, Sand-n*****,
Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink ... You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you,
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King
Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi You have the NAACP.
You have BET.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television).. We'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day.You would call us racists.
If we had White History Month. We'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to "advance" OUR lives ..
We'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of
Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships
... You know we'd be racists. There are over 60 openly proclaimed
Black Colleges in the US , yet if there were "White colleges" ..
THAT would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching
For your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights,
You would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're
Not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride ..
You call us racists.
You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer
Shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running
From the law and posing a threat to society .. You call him a racist.
I am proud.
But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?
Because we are the majority with the power..its that simple.

Frankly, there's nothing more pathetic than a white man in America trying to play the victim just because he is white. I am in my mid forties and can never remember feeling like my white skin has made me a victim, so maybe you feel like you do for some other reason, involving you as a person, not your race.

I am a white person who used the term "redneck" to signify a person of closed mindedness and bigotry. I do not believe that is a "racial slur" anymore than the word bigot would be.
Shut up. Seriously.

So you call close minded black people rednecks??

I didn't think so.

Don't worry, I'll keep it between you and me that your phoney outrage over racism is just a veneer for your self hatred and white guilt.

It's sad that this is about racism. It just so happened in this incident it was two white female victim's and a black male shooter. There are just as many violent crimes elsewhere where the victim's are black, the suspects are white, or hispanic or any other race, color, creed, religion. How about the fact that it was a human on human crime. Or actually a monster on human crime.
Um, that's simply not true.

Please show us these facts where white on black crime is as high as black on white. LOL..suuure.

Hey SRB...

You don't feel like a victim? Well, you might want to do some introspection as to why you feel that blacks are victims in constant need of your defense. Just a few posts ago, you were spewing racist epithets yourself. Clearly you DO believe in a social class and racial class that is lower than yours.

You need to seriously stop patting yourself on the back for being "non-racist" and do a little introspection about why you feel that certain income classes and races are completely a green light for your discrimination and others aren't.

Oh and for what it's worth, there IS NO greater scapegoat in society than the poor white man, or as you like to call them, "rednecks".

You can't even say the word BLACK today without whispering it or looking over your shoulder. Using a racial and classist slur however when applied to whites is PURE COMEDY. Good luck doing the same towards a poor person of color...that of course is heresy of the highest degree. It's so awful that middle aged white men will come along and defend who he deems as defeneseless (blacks).

This is all a big, feel-good, hypocritical smokescreen.

So old yet so dumb.

Ok..I said I would use racist ignoramus if you prefer. Deal? I don't call people rednecks because they are white, I call them that AFTER they have demonstrated themselves to be bigots. You are right, it is typically applied to white so I'll stick to racist ignoramus.
And to the white who feels "victimized?" BooHoo!

Listen up, the Mom died. May she rest in peace now without looking over her sholder. They were trying to keep her from testifying in an upcoming trial. You are all missing the point. There is a serious witness intimidation problem in this world. Florida especially. There was a CNN special on the subject last week.

I feel sorry for her and her daughter. You try to do the right thing by agreeing to testify in court and the thugs/gangbangers get their buddies that are still on the outside of the jail to pick you off, just to save their criminal A#$*s. Where is the police protection that they promised you. I say get a concealed weapons permit and protect yourself. I'm sick and tired of all this BS. There are people out here that are afraid for their lives and all you guys can do is talk racisim. White/Black or otherwise, a woman just died at 40 years old because someone didn't want to go to jail for a crime that they commited. Sick, Sick, Sick.

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,!
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will l always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didnít take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out t o be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry ,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

I am a long time Friend of Jean's, and My Heart and prayers go out to Jean's Husband, children, grandchild, siblings. I have known Jean for almost 10 years and she was a very strong women. For her to have to endure 3 years of fear was the worse for her and her family. This isnt about rasism or SFL its about a women losing her life and a daughter having to deal with the healing of seeing this...I think this thread should be for respecting the McReynolds family and giving them your thoughts and prayers. Jean I will always remember you as the "SPUNKY" person you were...I love you!

Be respectful, this is about a woman whom lost her life for crying out loud! This woman was dearly loved by so many people, I don't understand why this thread involves racism, cops, or anything else in that matter. If only half of you thought about what you are going to type before you typed it, you'd think differently. You have to understand that only what matters, well..matters. The only thing WE are trying to figure out is "Who would want to kill our friend?" We will find him, and we will prevail though this time of hardship but Jean will NOT be forgotton! Carol, Sue, Katie, Wayne, Joe, Lynn, and family, you all will find justice where justice is due! This shouldn't had happened to Jean and the toll it has taken on the family is more than divistating, for that i'm very sorry for your loss. Prey her soul is forever resting in Heaven, and always remember she'll be watching over you forever untill you are reunited in God's Holy Kingdom. Thanks

...not to mention, she is still giving today. I read she donated 8 (or 11) of her organs (including her heart) to those needing transplants. She is truly remarkable!

My heart goes out to this family and you are in my prayers. I live in Hollywood, so this is very close to home, I hope the police catch him before he has a chance to hurt anyone else!

I am also a sister of the victim and hopefully whom ever did this to our sister will pay dearly for it. We will always love her, and she will never be forgotten.
