Well here it is my children...
I'm going to hide from you, I'm going to operate a 'hands-off' parenting style, I'm going to be completely undetectable in a world of poverty, savagery, greed and war.
However all I ask is that you love me because if you don't I'm going to send you to a man who lives in the basement who is going to do things to you which would make Hieronymus Bosch pee his pants.
Love ya kids...
Great analogy!

Which is what you do when you support any racism at all, even if it's your own "special" brand of racism.

When Jezebel the queen mother heard that Jehu had com to Jereel she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window. When Jehu entered the gate of the palace she shouted at him. Have you come in peace you murderer?? You are just like Zimri who murdered his master.

Jehu looked up and saw her at the window and shouted Who is on my side? And two or three eunuchs looked at him. Throw her down, Jehu Yelled
So they threw her out the window and some of her blood spattered against the wall and on the horses. And Jehu trampled her body under his horses hooves.

Then Jehu went into the palace and ate and drank. Afterwards he said, Someone go and bury this cursed woman. for she is the daughter of the king. But when they went out to bury her they found only her skull, her feet and her hands.

When they returned and told Jehu He stated, This fulfills the message from the Lord which he spoke through his servant Elijah from Tishbe. At the plot
of the land in Jereel, dogs will eat Jezebel's flesh. Her body will be scattered like dung on the field of Jezree. so that no one will be able to recognize her.

No, AnnieJ, when someone uses a group of people to insult others, they are not insulting the group as a whole, but demeaning their own character. Racism doesn't tell us anything about "races." It just tells us how ignorant and intellectually impoverished the racist is.
As disturbing as I find the "in your face" racist/bigot...I am possibly more disturbed something else...those that don't realize they are being a racist or bigot. I am not sure that I know exactly what to call it.

Scenario...

Straight person 1 says they are not homophobic...Straight person 1 gets angry at Straight person 2...person 1 calls person 2 a faggot...accuses them of being gay...using "gay" as an insult.

Is person 1 non-homophobic as they claim?

Why would someone who claims to have no problems with someone being gay then turn around and use "gay" as a tool to degrade person 2?

Same thing with racism...claim to not be racist...yet doesn't hesitate to use ethnic slurs or tell ethnic jokes.

Just my opinion...

You would probably not be surprised at how many millions of (USA)Americans have no problem with murdering gays, blacks, Jews, Muslims, atheists, etc. all in the name of Jesus.

I saw it all my life and still do. The saving grace for our country is that there are 10s of millions of liberal Christians who don't.

The truth is that the more conservatively/fundamentally religious the person, the more likely they are to be dangerous.

Ignorance is often held onto tenaciously, since to you, it isn't seen as ignorance but a valid form of personal knowledge, and eliminating that ignorance would mean you have to admit that you were indeed ignorant.
Eliminating ignorance in yourself is not a bad thing, and doing that is one of the best things you can do for yourself and more importantly, benefits the world.
Like you said, I don't consider it ignorance. So far, I've talked about those three kids that beat up the other kids, all the blacks in prisons and jails, and the filthy blacks in HUD housing and free housing, etc.

None of that is ignorance, that's just knowledge. As bongo put it, it's calling a spade a spade.

As soon as someone proves they are anti "X", the deepest cut I can give them is to accuse them of being "X".

For example:
The worst insult you can give a Nazi is to call them a Jew.
The greatest damage to a Nazi is proving they have Jewish blood.

I am sure RR would hate to know that chances are 100% that he has African and Hispanic ancestry. He actually hates himself.

What about the "white" people that live in HUD housing...are they filthy?

Are you calling them filthy because they do not shower...or simply because they are not your skin color.

I have asked you a couple of times before...

You said...even kids can make the right choice despite their circumstances...their experiences...their environment...yet...you can't.

Clearly, you are correct, I am wasting my time.
Not sure that I see this situation as a winnable/unwinnable one, but an instructive one. RR's teaching us all how insidious structural violence works - he has admitted that he's an unwilling tool of racism. He doesn't want to be a racist, but he has no choice, no power to change himself.
So we know the limits of this man. This is enculturation. It's powerful. That he is conflicted over his own thoughts and behavior and powerless to change them provides a wonderfully strong example of how limited people are by their growth and development. We cannot trust people's subjective realities. So the tools of science, the reflexivity and critical analyzing of the self in the social sciences are so necessary for us to understand humanity.
These tools lead us to reject religion. Just as RR's racism is the direct product of his early environment, so are his religious experiences. "God" certainly spoke to RR in RR's reality, but it is no more objectively real than RR's racist image of black Americans. Just as we can do away with his racism as a product of his early environment, so to can we do away with his religious experiences thusly.
I have no doubt both are meaningful to him, and neither are descriptive of objective reality.
Hidingfromyou wrote:

You're wrong about that. I've changed a great deal over the years. If you've known me for the pat 20 years, you'd know that.

But you haven't so you assume.
Hidingfromyou wrote:

How would you know my thoughts on that? I've never broad-brushed all black people, I've only talked about certain particular groups of black people.

Again, you assume.

This is one of your failings: the inability to own your own mess.
You have been abusive for months (yet another personal failure) for no better reason than you object to my antiecclesiastical position, the expression of which is the principle raison d'etre for Topix.
I have the right and in fact the moral duty to express such opinions if I hold them and consider them important. You are only entitled to rebut them - show where they are in error - if you can.
Instead, you have embarked on a months long campaign of abusive posting amounting to nothing but personal attacks. I have tried to work with you three ways. First, I returned the abuse, hoping that you would come to understand in the process why that was inappropriate. Remarkably, you hunkered down and continued in your campaign.
When that failed, I extended my opened hand to you, and even offered to help you when you expressed a passing interest in being better. You spat on that that.
Then I put a three month moratorium on my own use of language like liar and Dimwit. All I got from you was more of the ususal - a non-stop litany of comments about unethical professional practices, hiding in third world slums, and the like. But you still wouldn't relent.
And now here we are.
You are beyond self-blind

There is no point any longer in even trying to address the absurdity of your claim that you made an overture of peace any more than your denial you were the start of hostilities. I responded to you in the beginning at least half a dozen times, questioning why you would reply with insults and condescension when I had been nothing but respectful.

You have a very selective memory and even change actual eventas until your mind has it where you are in the right. Just like you denied you r interaction with Q was anything but you veing a perfect gentlemen. After i all, you merely inquired as to the question he may have wanted to ask and certainly didn't make four different, long-winded and insulting and condescending remarks to him.

But at that point, whatever happened between us is neither here nor there when it comes to what I am talking about.

I am talking about your non-stop trolling.About the fact that even with the nicest Christians on this site, day in and day out they have to endure your constant abuse and whining and criticizing of their faith. And despite the fact that you didn't even care when you came on Topix and you do this for your own ego. Day after day after day for over a year now, you are in here post after post just looking to be a pain in the ass. You say you don't write for Christians, so are you seriously claiming the same audience you have had since you got here of non-Christians is who you repeat yourself daily for?

Who are you kidding? You do it for yourself

Tell us more about a nation of people that to you is nothing but impoverished slums, people that you can't describe without the use of the word "burro."

You don't get to steal credit for yourself by pretending to be enlightened after the racist comments you have made in this thread about people that you're not fit to live among. You get to hang with the other assorted bigots on this thread, all Christians I might add. You get to hang with the atheophobes, racists, misogynists, and homophobes.
