Not loving thy neighbor as thyself.
and, one I am guilty of,too. Judging others.
Whoops, we got three and we haven't even delved into it very deeply, have we?
Lol, I haven't accused everyone who is different. Simply pointing out the facts. These actions are hidden by the mainstream media. It's a shame that behavior like that is ignored and people like you make excuses for it. Never said it was every single person of one race. I love my neighbors enough to tell the truth, how about you? It's not judging, it's getting the truth out there! You keep living in your fantasy world and I will keep warning people because the rest of you are to weak and scared to tell the truth! Just remember that obamas guy, Eric holder said that he can't prosecute his own people. So act as uncivilized as you want!

I looked up all the definitions and synonyms for uncivilized. None of them seem to apply to me.

That I.Q. really lets you down sometimes doesn't it.

This is stupid. There shouldn't be a black history month any more than there should be a history month for ANY race. History is history and should be treated as such. Celebrate the accomplishments of African Americans side-by-side with all other Americans and not make a special occasion to single themselves out. Black History month is no better than BET, HBU's, or the United Negro College Fund. We are Americans united as one and need to start acting like it. The longer people find ways to separate races the longer we will have racial tension.

Blacks are bringing back segregation. They are segregating themselves with all their black labelled agendas! True racism!

Bradly, if I had to live in your world, I would want to be separate from you, too. It's not just blacks.

I'm curious. Your address on Topix shows Omaha, Ne.; but it seems doubtful that someone from Omaha would be so vehement about blacks. Where are you actually...better still, where were you born and raised?

There goes that i.q. again. Asking you questions and making remarks based on your published internet address isn't spinning. If you had been from Omaha, there would be a great possibility that your contact with blacks could be severely limited. Therefore your ugliness might be attributed to ignorance instead of cruelty. Since you claim to be from Alexander County, no such allowance can be made.

It would appear that the first assessment was correct. You are a Topix troll.

I would not make a comment about black people if I have never been around them. I used to believe the liberal media until blacks educated me on the truth. Btw I'm on a phone! So keep stalking my published address!

I stopped voting years ago when I realized that it makes absolutely no difference who gets elected. I'll return to the polls when there is a candidate/movement who will actually make a difference, or when the option "None of the Above" appears on the ballot.
Black History Month? Like all other race-exclusive institutions it is divisive. Supporters talk equality from one corner of their mouth while demanding gross inequality from the other corner.

That's precisely the type of thinking those you disagree with are hoping for. Sometimes voting for who will do the least amount of damage does matter. Not voting leaves someone else's vote unopposed.
