Listen, Indigenous-- vile hatred like this gets me upset to, but we're only rising to their bait.
These people are morally bankrupt, their hearts are rotten and full of hate, and they undoubtedly have miserable lives or they wouldn't have to be this way.
But look on the bright side: they've lost. They've lost and they know it. And it isn't one election. It is permanent. Sure, the GOP may win again, if they re-discover the "big tent" and get rid of cancers like this.
But these two, and everyone like them, are losers. One year ago you KNOW they were here LAUGHING at anyone who was stupid enough to think a black man could be POTUS. And they were wrong.
The sun is setting on them: it IS a new day. In forty years whites will be the minority in this country, and assholes like them will wither and die. This isn't speculation; this is reality.
Nothing is more dangerous than a cornered dog-- especially a dog that's rabid, like these two clearly are.
My advice is to let them stew in their own bile. They have nothing to add, they know their old world is dying, and every day they have to see a black man as the most powerful man on the planet.
It kills them, and that's enough. Let it be. You'll never get anything but stress and aggravation from this.
You're right.

I just like giving it back to them!! These type will die hard, when you have people like Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, and all the rest fanning the flames over the coals of 100,000 listeners at a time, when you have FAUX NEWS draining the energy out of the airwaves, when you have so many people believing that the problems in this nation caused by minorities, and so-called called black American people, this kind of stuff is the order of the day!!

As a poster said: Until color is no longer an issue in America, this problems will continue. I believe that it is safe to say that I won't see it happen in my lifetime, it may just happen, but I'm realistic enough to know that I may not see it happen in my lifetime.

The only thing I can do is to give it back, because I will no longer walk with this weight upon me. I've seen my relatives collapse and die, from the sheer weight of this problem, because they didn't know how to get it off of them, and so, they lived with it until they died!!

I don't address everyone like this, only the ones who deserve it, only the ones who have attacked me, first.

That's the story I heard behind the Pennsylvania pool issue - that the summer camp came with too many kids.
If someone drew up a contract for this camp to have access to the pool, then there should have been strict rules regarding the number of children involved, the number of adults involved, the days and times the group would be at the pool, etc. It just sounds like somebody gave this summer camp a thumbs up to "come on over" without any pre-planning at all.
I can't see the racism in this because if the swim club offered the camp use of the pool, then I'm sure the club knew what race the kids were. Now the camp leaders are making a bigger deal out of this than should be made and it's the kids who are suffering. Instead of standing around screaming racism, tell the private club to kiss your ass and go find another pool for the kids.
What they are doing now is teaching another generation of blacks to use their race in the media to get what they want.
It may be hard to believe, but sometimes life isn't fair to white people either. We've just learned to shut up, lay down, and get walked on.
Donna, you are ignorant.

For one thing, the pool did not cancel memberships based on any rules violations which usually come with warnings. This cancellation was abrupt and only after the whites complained to the owner.

Then, you have the comment by the owner. Something to the effect that having the day care there changed the complexion of club.

What you racists don't understand is that this is not a whites only country anymore. You are gonna have to learn how to live in a non-white world with non-whites in positions of authority over you and that you cannot do much more than tolerate it.

Dont like it? Well, let's see you change it. Let's see how many people support your backwards way of life: racism. You feel like you are laying down being trampled on? Well, let's hope we can trample the racism out of you. It is apparent, with your racist ideals, that this feeling of being trampled will never cease. For some reason, I don't feel so bad about that.
