Hmm. Black people aren't apes. According to Darwin's theory of evolution we all came from Apes. I don't necessarily agree with that. However, Africa is the birthplace of civilization. You know black peoples "looks" are just genetics. That's all.
This is a common misconception which the anti evolution crowd loves to promote. Closer to the facts is that man and ape evolved from a creature which was neither man nor ape.

My husband and I are a mixed race couple who moved to Mobile from central MS several years ago. While it's true that the south still has a long way to go in regards to racism, I can honestly say that we have experienced more tolerance here than in MS. Ignorance isn't limited to skin color. When it comes to dealing with people in general, I think a little love goes a long way.

Get over it! It's a broken record. All of you that complain about racism in the south move somewhere else. You all have a victim mentallity and you will end up being a bunch of bitter old people who keep putting politicians like Obama in office.

That's one way of looking at the situation. Another way is that the Deep South has a long and poisoned racial history, and now all the filth is coming right back in your faces. "Bitter old people?" Maybe. But in another quarter century the majority of voters in this land stolen from the American Indian will be non-white.

You are yesterday. The people who irritate you are tomorrow, and yes, they will indeed put more persons like Obama into office.

That's funny. That mentality is pathetic and is why this country is doomed. You do sound bitter.

I wish it didn't happen but its like night and day here my parents would kill me if I drove near the black neighborhoods you can only keep being racist as long as they keep acting like thugs and killing each other three shootings a week here . . damn I feel bad for normal black people

Born and raised and grew up in Mobile, AL.

The racism in south alabama is out of control. Most of them are closet racists. Not just against blacks, they can't stand hispanics either or for the matter, they are terrible to the asian folks down here that have jobs

With race mixing it is worse. You are raised from birth with the fear in you that if you marry outside your race, you will be disowned. I had a cousin who only dated a black guy, she was beat down to bruises and blood when her mom found out. Growing up you were always reminded this "don't you bring no one that's not white home to us" and no its not just black, the whole white pride is beyond that, it includes asians and hispanics anyone that is "not white"

When cousins have mixed racial babies, and then your family sits there and talks about them like they are devils, it really breaks your heart and is very sad.

I myself grew up in a closet racist family. They were not open about it, but the minute you were into something considered "not white" you got quickly reminded that you were either A. Acting like a black or B. A little lecture how you were not an African\Mexican\Japanesse

One of my favorite things in life is Soul and R&B Blues music. I took more vicious comments from listening to "that black music" from my own family than anyone else I know of.

Its perfectly OK for your daughter to be shacked up with a drug addict, if he's white. Its a problem when your son is seeing a hispanic woman, no matter how polite and honest she is, its a problem because you're white and she's not

Racism is not dead down here by any means. Most of them are just hiding in the closet waiting to come out when only the family is around. Don't raise your kids with fear of other races. It is not a nice thing to grow up through

Rcism has many complicated angles. Anyone who has not lived with a 60-40 or at least 70-30% mixture is not qualified to comment. I got tickled arguing with one white guy about racial problems. Suddenly it dawned on me the reason we were arguing was he had no knowledge of blacks. When I asked him about his racial experiences he finally muttered his son worked with a black man AND there was a black family living in their subdivision! OMG no wonder youre in love with the black community! Hahaha. Most people from Alabam can tell you how they've suffered reverse black on white racial abuse and its not funny! Until you have done that just shut the fuck up!

Best to let them thin their own ranks. If any civil racial problems occur most of the bucks will be dead, in jail or on crack. That will save ammunition!

Racism is definitely alive in Mobile and Baldwin Counties, but I truly believe many of those folks who are racists do not even realize they are. They have hundreds of reasons why a black man should not be president.
Hold on a second, why does it have to be a black man? They should have many reasons why Obama can't be president, not a 'black man'. Now THAT'S just racist. This is why most people prefer living in England where racism is much smaller- guarantee it is a smaller country- but even if it wasn't, the british people and those who live in England are usually less racist than everywhere in America.

Sure Gerald every decent white man would be more comfortable if his daughter was living with a kneegrow crackhead. You sound more like an damn appeaser than anything else. Maybe loan your wife out to some Asian boat people too you stupid fuckwad!

Darwin had intuition into genetics...but your statement about us all being "from apes" is absurd & ignorant. Please read Darwin's "Origin of Species" before you comment. That work falls apart a third of the way in.
