Your middle paragraph, first sentence, is perhaps one of the most obscene things I have ever read. So you're telling me that the genocide and enslavement of whites would be 'ok'. You are a disgusting individual to even suggest such a thing.
You speak as if you're outside of this (being white) and somehow it would not affect you were your wishes to come true. You know what. Take your sorry white ass to Detroit at midnight with your progressive drivel and you will be just as robbed and probably more than likely-it being Detroit- just as dead because you're just a cracker to them, doesn't matter what you believe.
I am sick to the neck of whites like you and of your mindset. You are the real problem in this country.
Again, if you read what I actually said was that was likely the only way for some people to understand the effects of that "genocide & enslavement". I never said I actually wanted it to happen.

Funny how everyone squeals like a stuck pig when they think THEY might be the victim, but never said a peep when they were benefiting from it.

You clearly implied it, don't try that with me. Benefiting from what exactly, my white skin? I am beginning to think that you are in fact a minority, just by certain things that you say. Interesting, indeed.

Obviously you wanted me to imply it. I wrote what I wrote; how you interpret that is up to you. Why ask what I meant if you're not willing to accept the answer I provide? You could just continue to read what you want into my statements.

Yes, we all benefited from racist laws just by having white skin; just all men benefited from sexist laws just by having a Y-chromosome. And we continue to benefit today even though most of those laws have since been repealed.

Yes, I actually am a minority- I'm lefthanded, red headed, blue eyed, male, and gay. Multiple minority attributes. Maybe that's why I can understand how racial minorities are negatively affected by discriminatory laws even though I actually benefited from them.

Your thinking and this b.s. is why the South will succeed. Keep doing this but in your neck of the woods.

Maybe you should get one of those bracelets or even spray paint your car or get a tattoo!

And please do not tell me just because you are some gay white guy that you know what it is to be black. You're not black by injection, ya know?

The south will succeed at what? Bigotry?? Keeping blacks and hispanics and gays and jews in their "proper place"??? Just what is it you imagine the south succeeding at????

In spite of the continued bigotry, things ARE changing, even in the confederacy.

I don't need a bracelet or tatoo or anything else to identify who I am because I have nothing to broadcast nor anything to hide.

Where did I say I knew what it is to be black? I simply said that being a member of multiple minority groups which have been discriminated against, I may be better able to understand the lasting effects of generational institutionalized discrimintation. To be fair, there are many members of the majority who are intelligent enough to understand that as well even though they may never have been the subject of such discrimination themselves.

Btw, I do fully support what Wisconsin is doing; it's obviously an effective educational tool because it's getting people to talk about the issue instead of denying or ignoring it.

Anyone with even half a brain (probably leaves you out) knows when we refer to equality we are speaking of equal treatment under the law without regard to race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc.
There are laws in place and have been for generations dealing with equal treatment, so-called in race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and -- maybe, I'm don't know -- even "etc."

All one can do is pass laws and enforce them. And that's being done.

That doesn't satisfy you, though. You hold the hands of your black pets, pooh-pooh them through their never being competent at anything but crime and babymaking, and this evidently makes you feel some kind of moral superiority.

Well, empathize away, Sheep, empathize away. But we've had 50 years of your kind of "concept," and anyone can see nothing is better. Indeed, the problem of black dysfunction is still with us and only gets worse.

Gee, with attitudes like yours & your fellow racists is it any wonder things haven't gotten much better for blacks and other minoirites in spite of the law......

Btw, many states have no laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation, including (not at all suprisingly) Mississippi, which has no protections for marriage or civil unions or adoption or housing or employement or hate crimes.

When do minorities get to be in charge of their own fate in this country and stop blaming the white folks for every little thing wrong in their lives-usually due to their own poor choices? Please tell me that, you enlightened progressive person.

Again you are one of those whites who lives in a 99 percent white area and has no real contact with blacks on a daily basis. You're a true progressive liberal through and through.

Maybe when racist whites such as yourself stop promoting discrimination & bigotry? One big step forward would be changing public school funding from a property tax based system to a state sales tax; spending per pupil should be identical regardless of your economic status or where you live.

Of course what you can't understand is I haven't lived in the Tawas City area my entire life. I spent 20+ years in the military and lived in many areas with high concentrations of minorities, including Portsmouth VA, Waukegan IL, Corpus Christi TX, San Diego CA, etc, etc, etc. And of course I worked with just about every minority group their is.

You keep referring to me as racist, why is that? Because I don't share your views? Is that perhaps the reason why? I have not said or made a single racist remark.

You were exposed to the talented tenth with all your minority interactions. If you're not familiar with that concept, do look it up. I know alot of good black people who work hard and make their own way, but I also see many many many blacks who would rather be wards of the state and cheat the system-that is far more common than the former.

If you bothered to do your research on spending per pupil, blacks by and large get the bulk of that money in public schools. This is not a thin air thing, it's fact. You can throw money at a problem hoping it gets better but it never will and that's why we see blacks failing at horrendous rates across this country-you cannot compensate for unwanted children that so called parents do not attempt to raise themselves, doesn't matter what you spend.

Couple that with Affirmative Action and you get a bunch of people who probably shouldn't be in certain jobs they are in , only because they are black. How is that fair to anyone?

We are getting to the point that the country favors what's good for the minority over what's good for the whole country-this is very bad and it's turning some parts of this country into a third world nation.

You sir are a bigot. You practice what is common with whites like yourself-the bigotry of low expectation when it comes to minorities. You keep them on the bottom rung, you like it that way. But you call me a bigot? Ha.

I don't recall making the first statement, but the second is sorely the truth. Please do have a look at any welfare statistics of any given state-40 percent of blacks are on welfare. Now I know that you are going to tell me that more whites are on welfare, but 40 percent of whites are NOT on welfare. If they were, this country would be in dire condition. The truth is not racist, the truth can only be the truth. And I notice you did not address my bit about bigotry of low expectation..not surprised-AGAIN!

Your first comment was in post #284. Your second statement is no better; prove they are "cheating the system" just because they are low enough income to qualify for welfare.

And according to the DHHS who is in charge of welfare, 40% of all welfare recipients are black, but the that doesn't mean 40% of all blacks are on welfare. The ACTUAL precentage is about 28%. Still way too high, but that's because there are way too many blacks who are below the poverty level.

What low expectations? I have very high expectations for everyone, once they have a level playing field.

That was me that made that posted that blacks are competent at crime and babymaking, not plain2see. You're so addled at being unable to justify yourself that you're firing wildly now, attributing posts to someone that didn't even make them.

He's just rattled, plain2see, and doesn't know what he's saying anyway. And so what? He calls you a racist and a bigot. As I've pointed out before, nobody is injured because this junior college philosophy class flunkout styled "WeTheSheeple" thinks you're a racist. You haven't denied anyone a job or a place to sleep or a loan or an education because of the color of their skin.

And, truth to tell, WeTheSheeple calls you a racist for what you post here. And if you posted nothing, he'd *still* think you're a racist because you didn't care enough to post about the plight of black folk in America (who do better than any blacks in the world, even back in their motherland where they were all princes).

In closing, hell, let him call you a racist and a bigot. It's the only ammunition he's got. Facts? Stats? Logic? Common sense? He just doesn't have it.
