"I want to destroy the concept of hatred." I assume he means to shut down the entire operation of the famous Black Entertainment Television channel also then, correct? I hope to see him soon, picketing in front of their doors. Ask yourself what you would think of a channel that proudly flies the name, "White Entertainment Television." The only thing that channels like those channels do is create a reminder of difference... I thought that he was out to stop this difference, or as he put it in his words, "concept of hatred." Why don't we just create a whole month dedicated to white history. Are people going to deny the clan as a part of it's history, no matter how much of a disgrace it is? Articles like the one you are displaying on your site here, create the difference that the Rev. needs to stop. Articles like this just fuel the racial fire.

Every month is a month dedicated to white history, in case you were not paying attention in class.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The Presidential campaign of Barack Obama is based upon generations of people who are beyond racism and into the New Politics, but as the outcome may show later this year, America still has far too many citizens who are not so culturally or politically advanced. Maybe when they die things will change. I doubt it.

every month is not white history month - that is what the hate-mongers want you to think

if you are truly paying attention there are many people who are rarely represented in history in general

but I guess that would mean you'd have to think for your self

As long as White anything is not allowed we are pure hypocrites when itm comes to race relations.
America should ban all ethnic preferences.
Good for the goose, etc.
BTW-White men ARE the minority in California now. Doesn't that kick in all those preferential treatments that minorities usually receive?

IT HAS COME TO THE POINT WHERE THE WHITE IS THE MINORITY. HIRE A PERSON BECAUSE HE CAN DO THE JOB AND NOT BECAUSE OF HIS COLOR. IT HAS BECOME A DOUBLE STANDARD. WE HAVE BLACK PRIDE DAY ,BUT IF WE HAVE WHITE PRIDE DAY THEN IT IS RACIAL.

Are you serious?!?

I wish I could egg it. Or burn it down. But I'm too old for that kinda of behavior, but that's what my heart feels.

In around 1999 I saw a man walking on Beach Street dressed in a full white robe with one of those white dunce caps, a KKK fool. I stopped my bike and threw my Diet Coke at him. I was much younger then.

See, the white hatred of the black man lives on even to this day. Anybody who says that racism isn't real, or that the black man don't deserve reparations for decades - centuries - of oppression in this country is just foolin themselves. Haters even on this web site, saying that they don't agree that there is a problem.

I bet if things was reversed, and all you white folks had been through what we been through, you would be singing a diffrent tune...

The guy has a right to own his shop and the reverend knows this. Protesting just draws attention to it and probably increases sales. Given the location, there is an obvious demand for the products he sells, no matter how vile they are, so what does a good reverend do?
Answer: Open another business up that is so revolting to his customer base that he goes out of business due to lack of patronage. And maybe some 24 hour a day music booming away, like Morris day and the Time doing Jungle Love, though my personal favorite is Oak Tree.
There's more than one way to skin a bigot.

White men throughout history have gone through exactly what blacks in America went through.
Slavery has been around for thousands of years and a lot of the time it was people of color enslaving so-called whites.
Slavery isn't a black thing. It's a morality thing.
Some day blacks will be proud of their race instead of using their color as an excuse.

Oh really?! So there were ships upon ships full of thousands of white slaves that made the trip across the Atlantic? Wow, that's news to me. JHenry, looks like someone forgot to take their meds buddy. Gimme a break, it's not to say white people haven't endured hardship, but to say they've been through the same is a ridiculous LIE, not just an exaggeration.
I challenge you to watch the movie "Amazing Grace" and then come back to the discussion...

many of us were...
did you know Anglo is a corruption of the latin word for Angel? that is what the Pope called the light skinned light haired people that were captured and brought to Rome for his entertainment.

EVERY race has experienced and inflicted slavery on some group at some point in its past... Blacks, whites, Asians, indians, native American Indians, etc.
Slavery is part of our collective HUMAN past. To claim otherwise is ignorant and self absorbed in the extreme. I owe you NOTHING for black slavery. Yo uwere not a slave, and I am not a slave owner. If you want to say ... "but your ancestors" then I can probably say, "but YOUR ancestors" too.
