It sounds silly but the forum gives me hope, re: racism. Racist and homophobic (sexist attitudes seem to be longer enduring) attitudes have eroded massively in the shared public in the last few decades. Where these attitudes would have recently been widely shared, you're seeing them decline massively and self limit to anon exchanges.
Back in the day, everyone would have thought these things, said these things and it would have been acceptable in high value personal exchanges. At work, in schools, anywhere.
And, on a personal level, I've really enjoyed watching these ideas move into a more class bound system. If you look for racist posters here, you're going to see that the same folks who have a problem with other races also have a problem with basic literacy. And while I recognize that helping people address their class and educational limitations can work to eradicate these biases while providing a more equitable and fair cultural market for all, I'm delighted that the folks who retain these biases aren't in a position of power in our culture.
It would be great if we could address poverty and educational gaps in an effort to eradicate racism amongst the less privileged. But for now, it's great that these folks are too dumb/poor/devoid of agency to do much more than mutter darkly.
And when you combine these trends, to note that even amongst the lower classes this kind of speech is being limited to anon exchanges, that demonstrates that even among these less capable groups, that there's a growing understanding that these biases are unacceptable.
Tl;dr: It's kinda ok, only the lower classes really still seem to be racist in direct expression. And even they seem to know not to trot that nonsense out in the real world. Systematic racisim still sucks.
By "lower classes," I can only assume you are referencing Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson, Al "F#gg0t" Sharpton and their supporters, who enjoy immunity with respect to their prejudices.

Call me a naif, but I really don't think anyone on the forum is truly racist. Comments made based on race, job profession, stupidity with other factors drawn into the discussion, which may appear bigoted or racist...easy target on an anonymous forum.

<quoted text>Pundits saying they, being congress, will not touch the decision. Thanks for more info.
I find the decision interesting yet perplexing; it's like there was no real decision. Just my interpretation.
The decision frees nine (9) states from unjustified federal oversight as reinstated by the 2006 Congress based on a decades-old formula; and, it restores them to an equal footing with the remaining 41 states.

The Professional Black Grievance Industry cannot be pleased.

I'm actually talking specifically about statements made on this board. Sorry if I hadn't made that clear enough.

I agree that most of the racist posturing is part of the Internet Tough Guy Syndrome, but I think that the choice for people who feel powerless to work to try and establish a voice that they feel is powerful through racist speech is a meaningful one.

Yes, it is just people with little agency and education trying to be heard. But their choice of racist speech to try and be noticed speaks to their motivations.

Personally, I almost like it. You've got folks screeching epitaphs to the internet from their trailers and cold water flats while the rest of the world continues to move on without them. The contrast between the forceful nature of the words chosen with the utter powerlessness is beautiful and fitting.

On another note, your posts could be cut to the one-third their size and still retain their pomposity. Ms. MPNF may cut you a deal on her editing services, though the results may be even more entertaining.

If anyone here displays a bent for phony superiority and crass stereotypes, it's you, tramp.

Meanwhile the EU is in a wreck of demographic decline and sharia takeover.

I point out the truth about racial politics and the media. You twist yourself into a pretzel trying to defend the Third World society your people imported.

Most of the left are against the concept of a positive white identity, but most of them are also white, so it's hard to charge them as "racist against themselves", it's akin to saying a "self-hating Jew" is "Anti-Semitic"

Rhino is a racist, probably the only poster on here who can be correctly labeled one. Were he "privileged" enough to get into Columbia back in the day, he would have been bros with Holder.

Obama attacking SCOTUS...again.
And calling on Congress to do something about it.

Just another example of the Left/MSM's subversion of truth.

The majority opinion clearly states:

"Our decision in no way affects the permanent, nationwide ban on racial discrimination in voting found in 2."

Just hope he doesn't get another SCOTUS pick, or if he gets one after a GOP Senate majority in 2014, which means he would have to nominate a conservative.

With the Rinos we see today? He can nominate any far left woman or minority and confirmation is assured.

Depends on the size of the majority

Note who would become Chairman, either Grassley or Sessions.

Neither would let a leftist out of committee.
