Plain2see was sending it to *Y*O*U*, the guy who sought out the lily-white community to live in so as to avoid blacks. So in answer to your question, yes, Sheep, it most assuredly was a racist-to-racist transmission.

Now, having said that, so what if it was? Where is the injury? Who is hurt?

You throw this word around like it means something. You throw this word about as though it has some effect on us. It doesn't.

Oh, "Use-of-the-word-'racist, ' where is thy sting?"

At least you're finally admiting how it works in Mississippi; same as they've always done. Just another innocent black man heading to prison.
So prove it. Prove he's innocent.

The killer confessed already.

You say his confession was forced, that he was tortured or it was beaten out of him.

Prove *that,* then. No one is saying that any confession was forced, not the FBI, not the mainstream media, not even the murderer's own family.

The only person saying it is you, who have not a scintilla of proof sitting up there in your exclusive little all-white compound. All you have for "proof" is that flapping sheepy mouth of yours bleating "raaaaaaacist, raaaaaaaacist."

Just this once will you give us some proof to something you spout off about here.

Typical progressive, when the truth is right in front of your eyes, just pretend it doesn't exist.

Basically, at the link, Brown University is hosting a talk for gay black people to overcome their attraction to white gay people. Isn't that just peachy?

What a god-awful place Mississippi is; not fit for man nor beast- only Republicans.
I really don't understand how blacks can still live there. But then again, many blacks still live in Detroit, and I can't for the life of me understand that either!
I've been meaning to ask you about that and keep forgetting.

What's wrong with Detroit?

I mean it as no more injurious than when a I call a right handed person a right handed person. It's simply the best description for what you are.

Whether you take that as harm or not isn't my problem.

The proof is in the LOOOOOOONG history of Mississippi framing black men for the crimes committed by whites.

What more proof do you need?

You've said this before. You haven't named for us yet any black man that was ever framed for any crime committed by a white here. You mentioned some crimes that happened half a century ago. In none of those crimes was a black framed. In most of the crimes there were convictions.

So who does your proof indict? Who does it convict? Who does it charge? Do you have a suspect?

Answer: no one. What you're calling "proof" can't be used to convict anybody of anything. What you're calling "proof" here is a generalization about an entire set of people, that is to say in this case the entire white population of the Great State of Mississippi. You do realize that, don't you? Or are you going to remain so disingenuous that you will deny it?

Of course, anything I say about blacks is to you a generalization and therefore racist.

And anything you generalize about whites in Mississippi, well, that's just the gospel truth.

It just goes to show, doesn't it? Nobody need know what's being said about whom. They only need to know who's doing the talking.

Oh, and I already know: I'm a racist.

Don't try to weasel out of saying anything. What's wrong with Detroit in your opinion?

Correct- you're a racist, as are most white Mississipians.

Now you're finally understanding.

Right, you know what's wrong with Detroit because you've spent so much time living in Detroit or even in Michigan?

Let me guess, you'll look at the racial make-up and that tells you all you need to know, right?

In my opinion Detroit & Flint & Saginaw & other Michigan cities are typical northern rust-best cities compounded by a near 100% reliance on the US auto industry.

Now go ahead and tell us it's all the black folks fault like a good racist would.....

Anyone who judges a person and/or discriminates against them based solely on their race.

You should know, you're a textbook example.

"Coahoma County Sheriff's Office Accused in Beating"

I must say I am shocked and disappointed to learn about this. We so much need to believe and to know that our law enforcement personnel are above such things as this.

So for me to wake up this morning and check for a news update on the Marco McMillian murder of last month and to see news of sheriff's office personnel administering a beating, I am appalled and chastened.

Everyone here may as well get the story from me since I have been so vocal up to now:

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

"In an effort to help raise money for the Clarksdale High School senior class trip, the Coahoma County Sheriff's Office played the Clarksdale Police Department in basketball at CHS Friday night. A late Jovas Haynes 2-pointer gave the Sheriff's Office a 70-69 win."

http://www.pressregister.com/sports/article_9...

No word yet whether there is a looooooooooong history of sheriffs' offices in Mississippi beating local police departments in basketball contests.

Meanwhile, the real killer of Marco McMillian continues to be held by authorities in Memphis where he has been charged with homicide.

Well, now I'm confused.

Relying on the auto industry leads to high crime? I mean, we have high crime down here in Mississippi and we don't rely nearly 100% on the auto industry. Neither does St. Louis and it has high crime.

Does relying on the auto industry result in failing schools? Our public school academic achievement in Mississippi perennially charts near the bottom, and we don't rely nearly 100% on the auto industry. Neither does Atlanta and it has abysmal records of academic achievement.

Does relying on the auto industry lead to high rates of illegitimate births? We in Mississippi have this same conundrum and yet do not and never have relied nearly 100% on the US auto industry. Neither does Chicago and some areas of that city were tracking about 90% illegitimate birthrates.

Does relying on the auto industry mean that we're going to have high levels of unemployment in Mississippi? Figures were just released last week by our Mississippi Department of Economic Security. MDES says that the rate of unemployment in the US is 8.1%. Here in Mississippi, MDES says, it is 9.9%. Coahoma County, Mississippi (where Marco McMillian was not murdered by white sheriff's deputies or crazy, snaggle-toothed, nazikkk homophobic white guys in dilapidated pickup trucks with gun racks in the cab and Pabst Blue Ribbon cans littering the back end so far as the FBI has yet been able to fathom), has an unemployment rate of 15.3%. It has never relied on the US auto industry. Tunica County, Mississippi's, unemployment rate has now topped 20%. Astonishingly, there is no evidence of any reliance on the US auto industry in that Tunica County.

As Ricky used to say, You got some 'splainin' to do, Lucy.
