Just shows you that some people have a very poor sense of value. Give 'em some KFC and bottled beer. They'll put the chicken bones through their noses and the beer caps in their ear lobes as they scr_w away making more no-daddy-brats.

No,...to answer your useless question and thank you for the erroneous statement. Just what would you do, just what would the world do if that "R" word had not been invented? My,...oh my!

So let me get this clarified. It's ok to have a club or group or organization that allows only black participants, members and honorees? But it's forbidden for white folks to have a club or group or organization that allows only white participants, members and honorees? That seems really unfair. And if you complain about it, you're told that you are a racist. That sounds like racism to me!

Hey Vince, you now have a good, clear picture of the current status of civilization in this country., No love lost and we don't do backs! The ACLU should be wiped off the map and all its employees.

Most democratic countries around the world look to the U.S. as a shining example of a nation that embraces the concept of equal rights for "all" in itís legal foundation. Also, it's ironic that one of the honorees is being inducted because of her work in desegregating a school district. Wouldnít she be insulted if she found out that she was being inducted into a segregated hall of fame?

The KKK is a white only club and you guys hold rallies on the courthouse steps to demonstrate hatred against every other race. THAT'S discrimination my friend. If this particular hall of fame was for everyone, would the committee allow her to be inducted? I am completely against anything that's segregated. Yes, I'm black. I'm not worthless waste. I'm from Indianola MS. I fight to protect the freedom of people like you who feel as if they're supreme to everyone else in the world. And I do it while flying a 30,000,000 dollar aircraft. So, before you start running off at the mouth calling people worthless, ask yourself this, what have I done for this country?

You guys? Learn to read my friend. The poster isnít even an American. He probably doesnít even know what KKK means. Paranoia is a dreadful mental affliction and when you combine it with hallucinations of grandeur, like piloting a $30,000.000 aircraft, youíre looking at a need for serious psychiatric intervention. The closest youíve ever been to a $30,000,000 jet, is when you let the passengers out of your 15 year old taxi at the airport. You whiners who don't know how to make a serious reply to a valid question always resort to telling your opponent how well educated you are or how important your job is or how long youíve been a member of mensa.
And why wouldnít this woman be inducted into a hall of fame thatís for everyone? Are you implying her contributions to society were not sufficiently worthy to earn her admission to a desegregated hall of fame? After all, she was a major player in the very important area of desegregation. Open your eyes! It is the pinnacle of hypocrisy to elect a person who has fought her entire life for desegregation to recognize her achievement by honoring her in a segregated hall of fame. Even a self hyperbolizer such as you should be able to see the irony.
And donít try to play the race card. We elected a black president for the second time in November. If America is the racist backwater you claim it is, then how did a country with an electorate thatís only 12% black wind up with a black president?

Having to do with the first statement, reckon we could get a statue (or at least a picture) of Nathan Bedford Forrest in this museum or fall of fame? "NO !!!", I didn't think so.

To answer your question, because Nobama is so very good at wrapping the blindfold over so many people's eyes and promising everything as in his first term and delivered next to nothing. Plus the fact that maybe he was the lesser of the two evils. There was not much else to vote for at the time.
