If you don't want to be called animals, don't act like them. The NAACP cries wolf... a racist wolf, of course... every time a white person does or says something it doesn't like. The NAACP causes more division and animosity among the races than any other person, people, or organizations I know. The organization cries foul, whines, and continues to separate the race it claims to support with its imagined slights. I, for one, am sick of the whining, the poor-pitiful-me attitudes, and the self-entitlement. Whenever I read or hear about some new incident, I lose any feeling of sympathy the second I see or hear the names NAACP or Jesse Jackson. They are an embarrassment to our country.

I am for one sick and tired of hearing about white females having sex with the students in school. You all need to start handling your business. But you can't because your White Men) too busy having sex with the students too and watching kiddie porn. Sick ----s.

I don't live in a trailer, but I know many, many hardworking, decent people who do, and they don't whine and play the race card every time something doesn't go their way. They are not trash, and your derogatory term is a slap in the face to those decent people of ALL RACES who live in mobile homes. Typical, though. And by the way, the word really is "whining"; it is not "whinning." That misspelling rhymes with the word "winning", something a whiner will never do. If those who cry "race" every time they want attention ever want to be taken seriously or treated with respect, they need to stop segregating themselves by constantly using their skin color as an excuse for every slight they've ever had in their lives.

I know people won't take the time to check out the real background on this story since it's more than likely not taking place in their own backyards. I live in Wake County and a lot of people are upset with how the new school board is radically changing many things that have been in place for years. Obviously these ideas that were in place worked to a degree because the area is highly sought out due to some of the grade and post-education schools being ranked in the top 100 in the nation. The previous superintendent won the national superintindent of the year award. The new board wants to mandate "community or neighborhood schools" which won't adhere to what was previously in place to maintain ethnic and economic diversity. Rich kids will go to school with other rich kids and poor kids will go to school with other poor kids. This will ultimately break down to a position where whites will go to school with mostly other whites, and blacks and other minorities go to school with mostly blacks and other minorities. If all schools had equal opportunities, supplies, amenities, then this wouldn't be that much of an issue. That obviously isn't the case. And while you may think blacks are the only ones up in arms, there was a recent annual protest/march where many whites showed up in support. Some signs read about not going back to segregation. So once again it's not just about the NAACP pulling out this one blurb from Mr. Margiotta. Another board member actually said that she believed Mr. Margiotta should apologize for his comments. Mr. Margiotta also said that it wasn't the best choice of words...so doesn't that mean that he himself acknowledge that they were somewhat insensitive? I don't believe that he should have to resign behind his comment. And I really don't understand how people compare the NAACP to the KKK. I haven't heard of the NAACP terrorizing people based on their skin color, burning down their houses, dragging or hanging them from trees because of how they look on the outside. I don't think blacks are on KKK committees, but whites can and do join NAACP committees. Sometimes the NAACP goes a bit far, but one of the examples of good they have done was bringing the Jena 6 case to national attention. People of many different ethnic groups were outraged and voiced their opinions on the matter. And don't forget just like Rush Limbaugh isn't the voice of the white people, Jesse Jackson isn't the voice of the black people.

How many killings do you here about from them? Now how many killings do you here about where a colored pops a cap in another colored after drinkin a 4-oh and hittin a rock?

Call it racist or whatever you want, I don't care, but sometimes the truth is hard to take.
