It's fine to talk about equality and stopping violence. But unless you agree that all the porno shops must be shut down, unless you agree that the advertising industry and the television stations should stop trafficking in women's bodies, then you are just being a hypocrite.
Well said. If I were King for a day, the bars would be gone ( too many families do without in lieu of beer money not to mention the drunks on the road), no "Adult" material - women are not pieces of meat, no Al Sharpton - he fits under the Welfare system which would be gone also. Create a job if they want a hand out - if they had a job simply sweeping the sidewalks all day they sure would not have time to screw for more babies. But I am not the King so it is only items that bother me, nothing more

I do agree with this sentiment; raise the rent and let them foot the bill...if they can......if not, close up shop and go home...
So that is why you paid that excessive price for your home in your special subdivision, to keep the Blacks, Mexicans and Poor White people out?

You people need a history lesson if you think racism was invented by southerners. The cival war was about states rights long before the slavery issue.

i don't know where people get the ideal that only black folk came from africa.Have you ever heard of the Bible?Pick it up and read it sometime.The book of Genesis is a good place to start.Adam and Eve are the parents of us all. So therefore we all came from africa that's where mankind started.

ps. Quit watching the Tarzan movies, tv is bad for the mind!

Matt up North, be proud of who you are. There's nothing wrong with being proud of your white heritage. I am a black man and very proud of it.
As for Malcom X,before he was killed, he had a change of heart and begain to realize that we are all of God.s Children.SAY IT LOUD! YOU ARE WHITE AND YOU'RE PROUD!

To Passing Thru, reality check time, not all black people veiw White Pride as racist.We understand more than what you think. Don't be so narrow minded my friend.

you know everyone would be a lot better off if they would tend their own homes and families and mind their own business, but if you step into someone else's yard be prepared for the worst, people have no respect for each other at all anymore.

The black community is worried about stupid sheets, but I'm yet to see their outrage over the two white college co-eds that were killed by those black p.o.s.! What's up with that?

Big Papa, I don't know much of the history of Malcom X, did he renounce his racism and hatred of whites?

Well,the store wouldn't be in business very long if the redneck white trash stopped buying that garbage.And that,says a lot about the south.
Not really. I'm from the South (born and raised) and I wouldn't buy that garbage...wouldn't even go into that store. You shouldn't let the opinion of a few effect how you see the rest of us. Since you have such a sour opinion of the South and those of us in it, you should know that you aren't obligated to stay.

Hate crimes are only charged when the victim is a minority, not the other way around!

If you will search "hate crime" and blacks you will find that many blacks are serving time in jail for hate crimes. Most are in the north, it seems the south is reluctant to charge blacks with hate crimes.

Hate crimes deals with more than race and some states have their own laws on hate crime. A New York lawyer made a comment about how silly hate crimes are and how it needs to be repealed. His example was someone telling a lawyer joke in a bar which has several lawyers as customers. If the customer who told the joke spills a drink on a lawyer which starts a small fight but no one get hurt. He can still be charged with a hate crime for every lawyer in the bar because of his joke and assault. The same would go for a crowded business with UT and Florida fans inside.
