yeah it is a sad day in knoxville for sure..shows once again how that when whites try to fight for their freedom its viewed as HATE and if blacks rally or have a gathering its because their fighting for their rights and they have every right to according to our black biast media!ya know i'm personally not against anyone but i am tired of me ( a white man) always being viewed as the bad guy just because i have a voice!as for the rally it was to draw attention to the two white kids who were murdered and tortured by BLACKS and if it had been whites who had done the exact same things to two blacks it would have been called a hate crime and everyone on here knows it and thats what is BS.

makes me sick really at how scared whites are to stand up these days! then again the court system wont allow us to anymore with all this NAACP crap with their threats to people with law suits and everything else to try intimidate whites into backing down.wonder how a white version of a organization setup to fight for white rights only would go over?? the white version of BET Tv??oh wait how about a white starz TV channel?? lol yeah blacks are real discriminated against!maybe 200 years ago but not anymore so all this affirmative action and specialized organizations and everything else should be eradicated if they want real equality fight to be a person and not a "minority"..how bout label yourself as an american instead of after a country in which you've never set foot on??(african american)?? heck i am from various backgrounds but ya hear me calling myself german american?? polish american??how about european american?? nope and thats because as much as ya say your fighting to be equal..really all ya want is to be different!

I'm a black woman, and I'm deeply sorry for what happened to Chris and Channon.

But, you should be glad that the Revs. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, and other black organizations have not spoken out against this brutal crime. Or even gotten involved in any way.

Guess what? They'd notice the exact same thing that I noticed as a black woman. THE HATE TOWARDS "ALL" BLACKS!!! That's the point that Sharpton, Jackson, and the NAACP would drive home. White people will never accept blacks as "individual" citizens. Many of you in here view all blacks in the same manner: Criminals and animals.

The comments throughout this forum simply gives Sharpton and Jackson the ammunition that they need to light a fire.(and believe me, I'm no big fan of Sharpton, Jackson, and at times the NAACP.) Remember: I'm black.

African-American people will always be: Black first, a citizen second. Because we're sure as h-e-l-l aren't accepted as first class citizens.

And, sadly many of the comments on this forum surely prove that point.

Jackson and Sharpton should definately take a look at what they are defending. The black man puts his own down, Imus only repeated what a black rapper said in a song about black women...look what happened at Duke...where are the revs now? That "black crap" has been taught to you too... take another look at your post...Again, the revs and the nwaacp blame the whites..get a life..

I don't think anyone would be against white people standing up for their rights..and if this rally had been simply a protest against the media preference of focusing on white on black crime and not vice versa, then more people probably would have shown up.

However, when this gets mixed in with a hate agenda, then you lose any interest.

First of all noboby can tell Sharpton and Jackson what to do because they're grown men. Are they even aware of this crime? And first of all, I'm not a big fan of Sharpton or Jackson.

This story hasn't received too much national news coverage. SO BLAME THE MEDIA...Again, does Sharpton and Jackson even know that this crime has taken place? The only reason I'm aware of this gruesome event is because I'm living in Philadelphia, and I'm trying to relocate to Knoxville. Therefore, everyday I read the Knoxville News Sentinel, and I gaze at this forum. I would never had known about Chris and Channon's murder just by looking at my local news or the national news network stations.

ALL BLACK MEN DO NOT PUT DOWN ALL BLACK WOMEN!!!

Stop stereotyping...Actually, that shows a lack of intelligence on your part; it shows that you're dumb enough to believe what you see on TV. Anyone with common sense knows that rappers are entertainers, they're getting paid to act like that. Now it doesn't excuse their lewd behavior, but you can't base all black men's actions on a rapper's performance.

Which goes back to the entire point of my original post. Many whites are lumping all blacks together based on what the black suspects have done. You can't do that. You can't hold my entire race responsible based on the actions of some criminals.

You need to go back and re-read my post Knoxxie. I am not sterotyping. I DID NOT say ALL black men..Again, go back a re-read what I said..

You may want to stop and re-read some of your post as well. You are on a real defense roll on these forums. I enjoyed reading some of your post, but here lately everybody is either stupid or lack intelligence. The south this and the south that...why would you want to move here anyway with such stupidity and lack of intelligence amidst you?
I am not holding "your" race responsibile for anything except their actions...
Get off the ban wagon and stop attacking others who post here. Just because you say it doesn't make it full gospel truth...
TV is not the only thing I do to base a statement on either. I'm just as damn educted as you are so don't think you are above anyone's head here..

I'm a fair and open-mined woman, therefore I went back and re-read both of our post. I stand by what I wrote.

You wrote: "The black man puts his own down..." Now, what black man have you ever heard in person putting down black women?

Well?

My father is black, my brothers are black. And, they have never put me down. I've got a real problem when somebody "white" states that "The black man puts his own down..."

You didn't type "some" black men put down black women...

Choose your words carefully...

Hey,

You comprehending...???

Are you friends with any decent black men? And if so, have you ever heard them call black women names?

Do you know how many times I've used a public restroom and saw white women come right out of the stall and never both to was their hands? I've seen that happen hundreds of times. That's unsanitary.

So, should I accept the fact that white women are just nasty?

I beg to differ. When blacks protest it is about getting more government cheese for themselves. On the other hand, whites generally do not protest until they become fed up with black on white crime or illegal immigrants driving down our wages.

You accept whatever you want to accept. That does not excuse your behavior on these forums with people who disagree with you. Nobody cares if your are a educated "BLACK" woman or if you are just a plain jane. Your opinion of people's intellect can be pretty overbearing at times. You had to use 3 posts to say what you wanted to say to me when one would have been plenty...Do you always have to have the last words? I have not read any post that refer to all blacks; I have seen your post accusing a poster to stop referring to all blacks being the same. If you were not so defensive then I believe you would see it that way as well..

Again, get off that high horse of negative behavior and write some more on that book you say you are writing and stay off these forums making yourself look uneducated and stupid like you say some of these posters are..Can't change the world Knoxxie..

ps: I may have been one of those white women that left the bathroom without washing my hands, but; some of the public bathrooms I have used, the sinks are pretty nasty and I prefer using the sanitizer I have in my pocketbook or car. If you want to call "WHITE" women nasty go for it. Thank our forefathers for our freedom of speech...
