From what I have seen in her home state of Georgia, she isn't a racist at all.

I am a black man and I say that she is not racist. We all have said things that were racist. We need to be understanding but yet not so sensitive.

Straight forward, as written. You posted the same thing three times, maybe people got your point, even though by accident. Did'nt say I agree, just saying I understand you better. I do find it interesting that a certain performer can tap dance all over the American flag, and tries to call it free speach, which in turn would reflect negitively against the current sitting president. On the other hand we have a cooking show host that admitted to using negitive racial references, asked for forgiveness, and is now a pariah. Let's see if I am refered to as a craka, cracker, honkie mo fo that is acceptable and needs no apology, but if another uses terms found in the movies they are expected to cower in fear, and be pushed into obscurity.
It is my understanding that through genitics scientists have discovered a common thread among all mankind, meaning we are all related. Based on that, if we insult others, we are really insulting our reletives.
Oh and yes, we had a very light skinned black women working where I worked. Sometimes her co-workers let slip their real feelings slip, and were releived of their position. They felt the love, and race relations improved.

Their frontal cortex gets older and slower. Thus why many uneducated white people are racist.

I don't think that anyone has established that she is a racist.But I think there is something wrong when someone perceives everything as racist and gets offended at the slightest little thing.

It's kind of like with retarded children, you can insult everyone else but it's taboo to say anything about the retarded children because their lot in life is so tragic. Is that how you want people to be with you? You want everyone to always feel sorry for you? You must do away with your victim status if you really want to be on EQUAL footing with us.

The victim status always moves them to the front of the line. Its BS. The apologists allow them to get away with it.

She was being a bit stupid.

But now I guess it's only a matter of time before they ban great films like "Gone With The Wind", in the name of political correctness.

Scarlett: You can take it all back to the kitchen; I won't eat a bite.

Mammy: Yes'm you is, you's gonna eat every mouthful of this.

Dude, victim? Personally, as in me vs you, I can buy and sell you. So no, that's not what I'm saying. Racism is racism, period. There is no such thing as "monolithic groups of people". Every single person on the planet is an individual. Retarded children? Yes, there are people who need special attention, so your example makes very little sense. Do I look down on people, Black or White, because I look better, have more education, have more money? Sometimes, depends on who. That's reality. Would I bother a stranger because of their skin tone? No, I don't know who they are. See the difference?

Son, as in me vs you, I wouldn't even deem you worthy to wash my genitals with a velvet sponge!

"There is no such thing as "monolithic groups of people". Every single person on the planet is an individual."

You got that right.

My example revolves around the fact that we have to be extra careful in how we adresses Blacks, as opposed to everyone else, much in the same way we have to conscientious around retarded or handicapped people etc. In other words you get special treatment because folks feel sorry for you. They afraid to say anyting that akcnowledges the fact that you're Black(of any skin tone). I think that is a sad state of affairs which you all like to use to your advantage.

And you are very dense if you think that folks despise you just because of your skin tone. Different behaviour and values, don't have anything to do with it, right?

. You might have proven your point a little wiser if you hadn't shown yourself to be an uneducated racist by directing your remarks at an old WHITE person instead of every race.

Behaviour has EVERYTHING to do with it, and YOU should know out of all people. "INdividual," an individual means that they see things differently from YOU. And, YOU HAVE to accept that. YOU may disagree, I may disagree. But, you still have to accept it. Don't abuse, don't belittle, and don't elevate one's self. YOu do not know if these "people" want YOUR sympathy or anything else from YOU. That is an assumption YOU are making. If one is pro individual, then one has to manage their projections. So, that they don't assume the other is thinking, wishing, or is what you would either be or think that they be.

Perhaps AMerica needs to circulate educational material regarding "how to live in a democracy without taking another's away." and, how to stop that specific CYCLE.

I try to focus on MY behaviour not someelses unless I am defending myself or I am provoked. Otherwise I focus on my own self-improvement first.

racism is across the board. But, in this country it was the Puritans who started it and it is still continuing in a vicious cycle.

the cycle has to stop
