Racism has been a consistent thread weaving through the American intolerant Right-wing, from the early days when Anti-Federalists battled against the U.S. Constitution to the present when a hysterical Tea Party denounced the first African-American president.
Intolerant? How so? We made affirmative action to give blacks an unfair advantage over more qualified whites, we give blacks a pass in school when they can't keep up with white kids. Government programs were created to help only the black population while paid for by whites. Get real, blacks have been handed a pass for their inadequate abilities for years. How about equality? How about we dissolve all these "black only" programs and special treatment and make blacks stand on their own merits? You want a job you must actually qualify for it, you want grades or a degree you must earn it. I bet you're not for equality are you? Funny how those like you scream racism while being handed every advantage (you didn't earn) to help you just try to keep up with whites. Care to stand on your own two feet with no help from whites?

Why did Bush give the working schmucks tax cuts and rebates over several years to all and this scum bag of the people nothing? Taking care the half population that he voted for him? It is not complicated. He is a progressive NEO CON war monger. He pretends to be anti Israel but is not. He straddles the line as he recognizes others who are Islamic but somehow leaders are being thrown left and right over there. As long as he follows the plan he will be president and do much of wha the likes domestically.
Yes let's vote him out of office. Oh wait too late. You need to keep up.

<quoted text> You are the racist. You are the hater. you are freaking thief who steals and is corrupted and firmly believes you are owed. Now men can not defend themselves. All people who live in cities in ethnic neighborhoods know the game. People who work in poor black neighborhoods learn how the system is played pretty fast. What bugs you is that no one has a right to object in your mind. Here is the first cure. Stop having the babies out of irresponsible behavior. Is that racist? Use the programs for education and uplifting as intended and get out of there. Is that racist? Am I mean and nasty? I do not write this as a put down. I got my own issues and problems. Our system in decline and at some point there is going to be a lot of angry people when the revenues can't cover the payouts even with massive false currency printing. Instead of shouting your venom at me, maybe just perhaps it should be the other way. At least I did everything AI could to take care of my responsibilities. Stop hating and clean up the corruption in the neighborhoods. The real poverty will get attacked instead of perpetual system abusing poverty. If you don't more and more will join the system. Out of necessity or just tired of being slaves to someone else.
You can hate who ever you want and don't have to apologize for it. This is what always happens when one person thinks they know what's best for everyone else and gets into a government office. The more the government tries to control the lives of citizens the more screwed up the problem becomes. I read a sign once that said "Don't feed the bears" they get use to it and forget how to feed themselves and begin to think they should expect people to feed them and get angry when we don't. I see a pattern.

What was racist about that post? It was just facts. Not liking the post is your right but trying to stop him from posting a fact or even personal opinion shows intolerance for free speech and free thought. Personally I think that is worse than racism.

Neighbor will kill neighbor..neighbor will rat out neighbor. Never changes. History repeats over and over. We will be tested like so many others. The Germans. The Russians.

Hate is a word bandied about and used so much it lost much of its meaning. Just disagreeing is hate by today's standards. If you give something a certain amount of time to work, it should. If it does not, then you change it. Small changes may bring big benefits.

Ha ha ha. I may fear many things but that is not one of them. You have an over blotted opinion of yourself and and your influence. Please don't take this the wrong way but you are pretty insignificant. As far as this forum is is just a pass time were I enjoy watching human nature at work. To bust your bubble I do enjoy other web forums more than this one. On occasion I read something with brain activity behind it but pretty rare. More often than not I like deflating the ego of people like you.

Is that a yes or no? Would you agree to remove affirmative action and dissolve all laws and government benefits and actions that are race based? Would you approve of total removal of government interference in granting preference based on race? Are you for true equality or do you admit you agree with blacks receiving treatment and benefits based on race? I can't wait for your answer. This time try to focus and give a real answer instead of your old dodge by insult routine.

There is nothing "awesome" about this case, and he has NOT been found "innocent". Although I do have to applaud ABC for being objective in your linked article. Unusual for them.

George was already innocent and as of yet to be found guilty of any crime. he will remain innocent of any crime untill a jury finds otherwise. I agree there is nothing awesome about a death. ABC, like most others are realizing if George walks the lawsuits will start and they are trying to start damage control for their unprofessional actions of depicting George as a racist, bloodthirsty, murderer. As Sgt. Friday always said "Just the facts ma am".
