You know this.
You also know calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur.
The idea you refuse to use an alternative term proves you are deliberately posting a racial slur.
Hence. you are a racist, lowlife, piece of sh*t, ignorant assh*le.
I was not raised to be a racist, however the behavior I've seen since I've aged might have made me one. Black racism is ignored daily, never reported.

but there has been EEO, Educational quotas, financial aid/scholarships and the list goes on and on.

It's hard to get out of he cycle, but for those that really want it, the help is there. Drugs, booze and a bad attitude blaming others doesn't help.

Obama sure hasn't helped.

This is because for every local and state politician who gets elected pretends to have a cause; oh, it's usually, tough on crime, clean up the streets, lock up the pedophiles, don't allow them to live anywhere, blah blah blah
solves nothing. We have low level pot dealers serving life in prison and Zimmerman the killer walking around free. So the child molesters serve their time and then have to be homeless; as if that makes it safe for anyone. It's all a load.
Truly if the US government wanted to stop all illicit drug trafficking; it could. It won't, because everyone is making big money on it and they make an example of the low level poor slobs trying to sell a few pills or crack rocks to survive because they can't get a job due to their records almost guaranteeing a return to prison; that the stupid taxpayers pay for.

Christie's campaign, NJ GOP face federal subpoenas

TRENTON, N.J.(AP)— Gov. Chris Christie's re-election campaign and the New Jersey Republican Party have less than two weeks to comply with subpoenas from federal prosecutors investigating allegations of political payback.

The subpoenas from the U.S. attorney's office are evidence of an escalating criminal investigation into allegations that Christie's aides created traffic jams in a town with a mayor who's a Democratic adversary. Earlier in the month, Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney for New Jersey, said his office was reviewing the matter "to determine whether a federal law was implicated."

The federal subpoenas are due Feb. 5. A state legislative committee also is investigating. Its subpoenas for correspondence from 20 Christie associates and organizations are due Feb. 3.

Christie, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, was New Jersey's U.S. attorney before stepping down in late 2008 to run for governor.

Federal prosecutors refused to comment Thursday. Christie, in Camden to talk about a school dinner program, left without taking questions. The governor's office and re-election staff did not return messages seeking comment.""

There goes their best hope for 2016.

Huckabee 'libido' speech: Did he call tea party Nazis, too?
Mike Huckabee scored points with Republicans with feisty comments on how Democrats 'insult' women, but his linking of conservatives' tactics to Nazi atrocities may take those points, and more, off the board.

I'm left wondering if Huckabee's wife ever took birth control. Any republican for that matter. Seems, in Huckabee's little mind, women who possess a prescription for birth control

White/black, does not matter. It's called the local economy. I live in a nice diverse town where blacks actually earn more than whites, but then again blacks and whites from my town are moving south where the economy is better due to conservative values and the liberal high taxes and high unemployment up here. Education and drive is the equalizer. Also, you need to go where the high paying jobs are.

Problem is, with Obama & Democrats, jobs are scarce almost everywhere.

Liberals don't support traditional family values and then whine when their kids end up poor like them.

Go figure.

Liberals always make their own beds, then whine and blame others when their misguided notions end up but-f*cking them.

I loved it when you devious Democ-RATS touted your War on Women propaganda and then it was revealed Democrats in D.C. paid the women less than Republicans.

That was the end of your dishonest propaganda! Never heard about it after!

and it seems ol' Huckster is spitting image of Romney.

If Mike Huckabee ever wants to meet Uncle Sugar, he need only look in the mirror.

Earlier today, Huckabee invented quite the straw man in the not-so-controversial debate over the Obamacare provision requiring health insurers to cover contraception:“If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it.”

This is not the first time Huckabee has ranted about government-mandated birth control coverage. He called it evidence of “a nation that has lost its morals.” He complained that “since you want me out of your bedroom, I just don’t know why I have to pay for what happens in there.” He has even deemed it a factor in the Sandy Hook mass killings by helping remove God from the “public square.”

He’s been hopping mad about it for two years.

Funny story: in 2005, Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee signed a law mandating Arkansas insurance plans provide contraception coverage, including church-affiliated organizations such as hospitals and universities.

Nine years ago, Huckabee thought that the government should ensure that everyone had access to contraception. In fact, as the Los Angeles Times detailed in 2012, all sorts of Republicans were happily embracing contraception coverage mandates in the days of Bush and Clinton.

Then Barack Obama became President.

Perhaps more importantly, then a law was enacted that helped people who don’t have a lot of money get decent health insurance.

And suddenly, mandating contraception coverage became another goodie from Uncle Sugar.

so i guess it is right wing hypocrisy day.
