it's funny how so many minorities say "whatever" because the government says "hire a minority and save on your taxes. hire a minority for additional grant monies." but as soon as a caucasion suggests "White Entertainment Television" / "Cloud Magazine" / "NAAWP" / "Miss White America" / "The United White College Fund" ... the whites are just being racist. White citizens are inelligible to engage in the black version of the above sociieties. How long is this county going to look the other way in the "re-payment"

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...
Bubba ... what exactly have YOU been through. As a matter of fact, what is it that your parents were through? FORCED to sit in the back of the bus? FORCED to drink from different water fountains? WHIPPED for LOOKING at a white lady? Didn't thik so... So remind me, what reperations are YOU due? Hmmm - there were some Jews that were mis-treated by Hitler - maybe Germany should bend over backwards for them ... but they don't! Why? Because living in the past will NEVER create a healthy future.

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...
History started way before the US...all civilizations enslaved those who they captured in war..who do you think sold the slaves to the dutch!!!

If you do not like the place simply do not go in the building. I am from the north and the store has never ran out and grabbed me and forced me inside! They have a right to exist like everyone else.

You are a fool. Over 3000 Blacks were lynched in the U.S. and that is an approximation based on those that were reported and happened after Slavery. In the years between 1929 and 1933 more Mexicans were lynched than Blacks but even that does not make it equal. 1/12 the number of Mexicans were lynched as compared to Blacks. How can you compare a few decades of suffering by one group to over three centuries of Slavery and denial of civil rights. We all had it bad, whatever. The current rate of unemployment for African Americans is currently between 1.5-2x the rate of whites and this is true not just in bad economies. It is not an excuse it is real. You obviously have no experience of what it means to be a person of color.

People have got to stop getting their information from Movies. The very first "lynching" in the US happened to a couple of ITALIANS. Black folks probably saw the worst of slavery. However, every nationality had faced hard times in America. I'm not condoning slavery and what had happened, but we as a collective group of people need to move on and learn from our history and stop exploiting every **** new person that comes here from other countries.
Should their be reparations to black people because of slavery. Alright, if there are going to reparations for the Jews because of Hitler. If we start counting all the bad things that have happened to certain ethnic groups, we wouldn't have any money at all. Don't you think our terrible government takes too much of our money as it is to support genocide and wars on other poor people.

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?
Few in number doesn't mean that White Men have any less power or influence; there were fewer Whites in South Africa during Apartheid. Trust me...White Men are still running things in California both figuratively and literally. Why whine about "White anything" when frankly there is a "White everything" in our society.

Something that troubles me is the name of the store; I wasn't aware that being a "redneck" was synonymous with being a "racist". I know plenty of people who fit the Jeff Foxworthy definition who are not racist. To every "redneck" who loves all of God's children I say force them to call it what it truly is "KKK-Mart, Racists-R-Us, Swears & Roebuck, etc." Don't allow the "redneck" culture to be associated with hate. If you know what it's like to be misjudged/mistreated because of how you look, or because of how you sound or because of where you live, then you could be a "redneck" (or one of the other people this store belittles/degrades).

Reality- F....nut case!!! Blacks sold blacks into slavery and we made a piss poor investment. Europeans were once slaves but they did not sell each other and display the behavior the chimps did.You must have some coon in you!! These people are parasites and have drained our system so F...you!!!

I agree. It doesn't force you to go in there. Just like if you was going by any other store if you don't want to go in, then simply don't go in. People make a big deal over nothing.

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.
