I'm sorry.
Will that stop your lifelong whining now?
On the other hand what would you have to do with your time without the constant whining?
That is the only thing race baiters like yourself have been trained to do.
How about a little whining for the Black People in Africa who are being bought, sold, deformed, tortuterd, raped and exterminated by other Black Africans?
By the way that is happening today....now, while you are reading this.
Not to mention that it has been going on since the beginning of time.
Black Peoples worse enemy was and always will be other Black People.
No sense whining about that, there is no upside in it for you.
I'm sorry alright, I'm sorry there are millions of race baiters like you who spend their whole stinking lives whining about what heappened in the past, while conviently ignoring what is happening NOW.
I understand that African-Americans have some work to do when it comes to defending each other, but does that mean that we are always wrong and as you sya "whiners".

The blacks proved they vote in a block, for who ever is black on the ticket. Why can't white people express the same racist feelings through membership in all white organizations?
"vote in block".....I can only assume that you are referring to blacks voting for Obama. If you study the percentages of voters in the past election, Obama would not have been elected if the whites had not voted for him. The Blacks in this country could not get him elected alone.

Contrary to what the writers think of themselves, what we have here is not a bunch of experts on racism, but a bunch of racists.

and you're not whining? Isn't that the pot calling the kettle- well, black?
Most people know about the genocide in Darfur and other atrocities that are happening around the world. That still does not excuse the inequality gap that exists in our country. We call ourselves "civilized". Well, then we should act like it.
what a shame

Thank you so much Crystal. Wang Lou whoever the hell you are you have no life commenting on everybody's comments. How am I brushing it off? I am not a bozo or stupid. YOU are the ignorant fool. Listen to Crystal, you actually might earn something.

If he was a confirmed member of the Black Panther Party then public reaction and legal recourse (via the scope of his work contract) would have been more severe. The Black Panther Party is considered a militant group operating with US borders.

Any one who likes his race and wouldn't change it for the world, is a Racist.
The NAACP is a large Racist group.
The KKK is a Racist group.
If you were black and voted for Obama because he is black, you are a Racist.
As far as I am concerned, everyone is a Racist. I am sick of the word. Who were the idiots or group who developed the word Racist? I wish I had a magic wand to remove the word from existing in the whole world.

Here is the big problem-his presence in the police department would lead many in the community to develop negative relationships with all of the other officers and a general atmosphere of mistrust. He had to be fired or resign for the benefit of the community and his former employer.

Although I've been a victim of reverse-racism, I've not fallen into the ignorant trap of painting all Blacks with a broad brush.

Fact is, when Obama was elected, I had some special bumper stickers made for the 20 or so bigoted acquaintances who are always throwing the N-bomb around.

The sticker read: "Who's Your Daddy Now?"

Trust me, it was worth the money to see what nasty-a** racists look like when they've been punked.
