Kind of Ironic

I think it is kind of ironic, considering the opression,persecution and descrimination, I received as a youth, growing up in the Anderson Creek area, and being called a half-breed, and not being allowed to date white girls, even though they liked me, due to the prejudice of older brothers and racist fathers, that we now have a new President that is a "half-breed".
It just made me smile a little to know,that people like us are human toocapable of all things, including having human feelings.
I hope now that those people can see that their pre-judgement was wrong, and we as a people still accomplish great things if we all pull together as one people. AMERICANS!!!!!

I have lived here for 8years and 10months, Harnett County isn't a friendly county and those who were from around this area warned me before I even moved here. I teach my children tolerance and how to overcome racism. My background consist of at least 6 different cultures but we only list 1 race when asked on paper. Everyone is the same regards what race we are, deal with it and stop making it hard.

In Harnett County, If it isn't white, it isn't right.

If you think living in Harnett County as a race other than white is tuff, try working for Harnett County as another race other than white, you're in trouble. I don't care if you have a PH.D, if you're not white don't try to excel in top positions because it's not happening. However, if you're white with only a HS Diploma, you can count on advancing within the first two years of getting hired. If you're white with a Bachelors, you hit the jackpot because you're on your way to supervisory status within the first month of hire, and yep there are the token non-white people in the county that clicks usually elect into the circle but that's just a ploy to make others suspicious or so the race card can't be used.

White, Black, Orange, Green, or whatever you want to be! Just spell correctly! You will be taken much more seriously. But I have lived in Harnett County my entire life and it is a fine place to live!

Went to the Flame restaurant and was talking with an older gentleman. He warned me about certain places, like the Tiki, which he said could be dark. Code word for black people. Racist POS. I cannot wait for my days to be over in this fucked up place called Sanford.

I'm white, and grew up in Raleigh. Moved here a couple decades ago. Love the rural beauty, but AMAZED and DISGUSTED by the levels of prejudice against black and hispanic people SOME white people (including SOME) in power display, almost PROUDLY...there is an undertone here of KKK history that has yet to be overcome. The achievement gap at the schools, the income gap, the housing gap prove it. But PLEASE, don't let the suspicion of racism allow YOU to become PRE-JUDICED toward ALL white people. We, too, are just HUMANS, and many white people are trying to irradicate racial prejudice in this area, too. If you PRE-JUDGE me based on my skin color, then you're lowering yourselves to the tactics of the IGNORANT WHITE RACISTS!!!-Thanks for hearing me - become ALL God made you to be, hold your head high, shoot for the sky!!!-schoolteacher

You have failed to spell with precision yourself, never mind your sentence structure. But tell me, what does point that out achieve? In my opinion, nothing.

These forums are not essay tests nor are they reserved for the most educated among us. And attacking spelling is not a response to the topic, but way of deviating from it. That is not a proper method of debate. Since you are so concerned for proper spelling, I also assume you understand the nuances of 'Debate'. Here's one principle: whenever possible, always address the topic at hand. Your OPINION will be taken with a much greater level of credibility if you do. Otherwise, you are just sniping at those attempting to discuss things that are important to them, and that is an unhelpful variant that, surely, a grammar master such as yourself would be keenly interested in avoiding, no?.

That is a disgusting thought to give voice to in public. To hold it in private must be a terrible burden for you. Is it a shield? Does it make the world less scary for you? Empower you? I hate to break the news to you, but the year is 2013 and those who aspire to a greater social equality are not going to hide for your sake, nor for the sake of your, ultimately, ignorant thinking. Do you consider yourself a 'man' by any chance? Fully grown men do not sublimate themselves to their suspicions and fears, they face them honestly and master themselves with self-composure and dignity. It might serve you well in the future of your life to consider such topics like a grown up, instead of an angry, reflexive child. Good luck!

The word RACIST has lost its true meaning. No one listens anymore when scream Racist or Racism. It's just a word that has been over used ad infinitum, ad nauseam. The word is dead. Look in the mirror and blame yourself for your redundancy.

PS. It's quite obvious that the same poster made most of these comments. STFU, move on and get a clue troll!
