You are 200% correct in that respect is earned. Some of the best neighbors I have are black families. They have my respect and I have theirs.

I feel sorry for you. You are just a racist, pure and simple. You assume that Hispanics and African-Americans, in general are thieves that have no respect for each other. You are such an idiot. I live in a town that is mostly Hispanic. It is one of the safest cities of this size in the country. I have never had a problem with people disprespecting me or my property unless it was dumb kids having a toilet paper party. Nor am I afraid to walk around my neighborhood at night. This is the last I will bother with you, you ignorant fool.

Not to mention the fact that she gave more attention to the white family that had a toddler walking behind her than she did me. On the way out, there was another white family on their way out of the door. Once I walked from in front of the register, I heard her tell that particular family (in the most pleasant voice) to have a great day! That bothered me for about a second, but then I realized the bigger message. Racism/Prejudice is still alive in Winston-Salem (and probably other places as well) but how I handle it determines it all. I could've given her attitude and stooped to this ladies level but one day all racism/prejudice/bigotry and hate will be over. And that, good people is what I long for.(and if you don't know what I am referring to, find out how to love people in spite of their flaws, selfish ways)
Great pity-party story! Poor Danielle for having to deal with a "tight lip". You like telling stories? Well we all got them and here one from my neighborhood just this week:
http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/bal...

I'll sum it up for you. There was a 23 year old white male in Baltimore, a law abiding Johns Hopkins student doing cancer research and studying to become a doctor, who was brutally hunted and killed in the streets while walking home and talking to his mother on the telephone just one day before his birthday. The black suspects were fortunately apprehended and the victim's blood and property were found in their apartment. Later they confessed to "hunting" for a robbery victim and admitted to stabbing a "white boy". A white boy who was unarmed, not resisting and who had already given up his belongings to these thugs when they stabbed him. His mother had to listen to him die.

Now this liberal Baltimore paper didnt print what makes this article inherently race motivated. But this has become a common occurence here. Criminal blacks with records as long as a city block, preying on law abiding whites because they're easy victims. Raleigh has the same failed socio-engineering problems as Baltimore. White people are tired of being "hunted" physically and figuratively by poor-me blacks. If they're not out stabbing and taking our tangible property, they're brow-beating us with guilt trips of racism and expectations of affirmative action benefits.

Danielle, you expect me to understand a day in the life of your shoes. How about YOU walk a day in MINE and maybe then you'd understand this "tight lip" (if there even was one....or maybe your just hypersentive in nature)

You call me an IDIOT? The last Girlfriend I had before I got married was a Hispanic woman which we were together over 2 years ...

Oh, people, people! Do a little research on some of those old rich white Raleigh families. I'd almost rather be shot and stabbed by a black on the street than to go through what some of them have done to others. How do you think they got so rich and powerful...that's right, doing dirty. Most of them you'll find named on buildings, in local, state and national politics, on various boards, involved in school matters, and of course in businesses. Some ghost own clubs ect that would cause you "poor people haters" a cardiac to know what really goes on upstairs and in the back. Oh yeah, they are usually very involved in their churches, you know the blood of Jesus covers all sin.
And guess what, here is something you didn't want to know: they really don't give a damn about your children. It's all politics, game, and status to them.

I am forking over nearly 9K a year to send my 2 grandchildren to private school while driving a 15 year old truck.Considering they would otherwise attend Charlotte public schools;this is money well spent.I will also point out that this private school is NOT all White.There are indeed Black students present(also a few Asian and Hispanic).I have met some of the Black students and their Black parents.That is parents plural.Either the presence of a responsible,dependable,Black husband and father makes a tremendous difference in a Black child's life;or we are dealing with 2 different species here.Serious young Black Christian scholars VS.Jungle Bunnies.

If your neighbors are married,work for a living,value an education,and exert supervision and control over their children;it matters little whether they are White,Black,hispanic,etc.If you live in an area where there are large numbers of unmarried,single baby mamas;the nereby businesses all have bars on the windows.The prevalence of single baby mamas raising "chirren" is higher in the Black neighborhoods.As this phenomenon increases in the White communites;you will see the exact same dysfunctional behavior and crime.

How sad it must be to go through life giving people the stink eye because they did not fawn over you and assume it is because you are black. Maybe you have an inflated view of yourself. Maybe you have a disagreeable personality. Maybe the clerk at the counter just did not like you. Not because you are black, but just because. Guess what? White people get dissed every day by clerks, waiters, their boss, etc. But they do not have the luxury of blaming their skin color. People like you keep the racist hate train chugging down the track with your backhanded blaming of race on every little thing that goes wrong in your life. Get over it and get over yourself. "she asked if I wanted a bag?" If that is all the racist evidence you need, well I feel sorry for McDonalds when they ask you if you want fries with your order.

amazing how there is so much people fueling the racism. Glad not to be living where there is so much tunnel vision. i know alot of stupid, ignorant people and believe me it has nothing to do with race. There is a mixture of every kind. Just as well know plenty of succesful people who came from different racial backgrounds. You people open your eyes, llok around and you may learn something new.

Yes my southern friends, we are also getting sick of this negro mess! Diversity is a failure. It did not even work in our prison system when they were under lock and key. People have their on culture, speak, smile and move on. What in the hell is so hard about that! When you try and force people into this, it never works.

The people who are harmed most by segregation are no longer the bulk of the black population. Sure, blacks have lower test scores and lower incomes in a segregated environment, but they're used to a lower standard of living. In the absence of outright lynchings, they are comfortable in this predicament.

The people who are harmed most psychologically by segregation are biracial people who have to choose which race to side with, or have it chosen for them based on physical characteristics. This is ironic, because a Republican implemented the Amerasian Act, which benefited biracial people who are half-Asian rather than half-black. It's no coincidence that America was attacked during a Republican administration. The Republicans don't take well to Dr. King's brand of loving kindness--you have to kill them to earn their respect.

Truth in Advertising.

Still, Romney is a Romini, gypsies, from way back. Hitler didn't like gypsies, or human beings, for that matter.
