I'm not trying to shame you into anything nor did I mention the word "hate" any more than I had mentioned slavery or blamed whites for the plight of blacks as you falsely- and emotionally- accused me of doing and which you did not have the integrity to admit that I never brought up slavery or blaming whites any more than I used the word "hate".
I did not say you hate blacks; I said you think they are inferior to whites.
I do not agree. That there is more crime proportionally among blacks than there is among whites does not mean blacks are inferior to whites.
You want to sum everything up based on genetics without taking any environmental causes into consideration.
I find this to be a very complex issue which can't be wrapped up and tied with a pretty little bow like you seem to think it can be.
At any rate, your (emotional) need to try and get others to see it your way and to agree with you should be troubling to you.
I see no good that could come of the entire world embracing your racist views.
We do all have to live on this same planet together; to try and foster even more estrangement among different groups of people- which is what you are trying to do- is at best, counterproductive and at worst is very destructive.
You are of course entitled to your opinions and beliefs; it doesn't make others "fools" if they don't agree with you or if they find your racism to be repugnant.
"I do not agree. That there is more crime proportionally among blacks than there is among whites does not mean blacks are inferior to whites."

No, it means blacks are more prone to anti social behaviors (crime)which explains their high felony arrest rates, not discrimination by whites which has until recently been so often the excuse offered by egalitarians for high black felony rates. But now we have black police , judges, police chiefs and juries so that bogus claim is now laughable. Inferior by the way is subjective.

"We do all have to live on this same planet together; to try and foster even more estrangement among different groups of people- which is what you are trying to do.."

Rather this is what you are trying to do by telling blacks they are just like whites when they are not for wne equal opportunity does not produce the same results for blacks it then fills them with resentment and animosity towards whites. Can you imagine the resnetment if Hispanics were brainwashed to beleive they were every bit as good at basketball as blacks? They would be screaming about the injustice of an 85 percent black NBA. You cling to your racial ideology because it makes you feel good, not because it is best for humanity or because it is true for there is no evidence of racial equality.

Oh..... That's what you mean? LMAO, you think I think the eldery are just screwed? You're outta your mind. When I talk about the federally subsidized lazy asses, I'm referring to those Americans that sit on their ass & collec their welfare & food stamps. Those Americans that accept a 99 month unemployment check with no regards to our deficit. Those Americans that live off of the charity of other people when they have the ability to care for themselves but choose not to.
I'm NOT referring to the elderly, sick, disabled, children, etc.
You make incredible blanket statements without one fact to back them up.

If nothing else, you should know that in order to qualify for welfare, the applicant must submit proof that they are working.

"Work Requirements

Adults who receive TANF benefits must work or engage in work activities as defined by their state to remain on the program. Single parents must participate for a minimum of 20 hours per week and two-parent families for a minimum of 35 hours. This goes up to 55 hours if the parents receive help with childcare. Generally, single parents with children younger than 6 years old are exempt from the work requirements if they cannot find adequate and affordable childcare. Teenage parents usually need to be attending school and/or job training to fulfill their work requirements. Failure to comply with TANF work rules results in reduction and then elimination of benefits."

I must state again that I do agree with you. Emotions are emotions- neither good or bad but simply what they are.

However, certain emotions can lead to negative behavior just as certain emotions can lead to positive behavior.

So it's not emotions which are positive or negative; rather, it is the actions that are a result of emotions which can be deemed as positive or negative.

Wow- you're really desperate to bend someone's ear over this stuff, aren't you?

Your obvious desire to encourage and foster even more estrangement, anger and bitterness among people of different races is something I would find troubling if I were you. You seem to think your views are what is best for humanity. I disagree.

Try this on for size, Pat. The HUMAN race. Period.

Oh- try to quit frothing so much.....you make a lot of typos when you're in the middle of one of your fits.

<quoted text>Thanks for proving my point. If gays represent only 1% of the population, that makes your remark that they "shove it in your face" even more ridiculous than it already was.
So you think you get to determine when it IS okay for someone to shove their sexuality in the face of another based on the sexuality of the person doing it?
Yeah- I saw the smiley face and I realize you made your last remark as a "joke" only I don't think you would find a woman doing that to you at all offensive.
But I suspect you would want to blow a gasket if you see two men or two women walking down the street hand-in-hand minding their own business and not shoving anything in your face at all.
Holding hands is not shoving it in our faces.

Gay pride parades with people dressed nearly naked and acting sexual, with sexual themed floats, and no worries of the cops stopping them from breaking the law.

"Coming out day" and clubs for KIDS at schools.

Acting excessive in public.

Displaying placards, stickers, shirts and jewelry stating you are gay,etc. Like anyone but them really cares. Yesterday I saw a bastardized rainbow American flag sticker on some little car with a total flamer at the wheel.

People publicly declaring it on national TV, youtube, etc like anyone but them really gives a shit.

Gays would probably get more recognition & a good status if they acted with a little more restraint like the rest of us do. And no, I'm not talking about the absurdities that happen at things like Mardi gras, I'm talking about everyday life.

There's no "Hetero sex, FTW!" stickers...

There's no "We're here and we're straight!" stickers...

HAHA! Are you really that naive?

People get welfare so easily, when asked if they're looking for work a simple "yes" gives them another paycheck...

And 99 month unemployment? WTF is that?! What good citizen would accept that?

Yup. Just as a rainy day isn't necessarily "gloomy". It depends on how it's perceived.

In the Star Wars world, emotions are used - even 'neagative' ones: "Your hate has made you powerful"

But you have no problem with TV shows which glorify heterosexuality, huh and which are often very risque, do you?

Sorry, RR- I have known a LOT of gay people in my life; one showing restraint or not about their sexuality is not determined by if they are gay or straight.

BTW, there need not be any "we're here and we're straight" stickers since it is not heterosexuals as a group who are persecuted and discriminated against for being who and what they are.

You could apply all you say here to ANY minority and something tells me that you do sad as that is.

found out why you think the way you do.

Apparently in the UK they are persecuting Christians and have an
"Amorality" discriminate against religious believers.

Just read a news article about 3 current cases there
where a lady (Shirley Chaplin) was fired from her job for wearing a cross around her neck.

(Gary mcFarlane) was fried for refusing to counsel same sex couples.

(Lillian Ladele) was fired for refusing to officiate same sex couples in marriage ceremonies.

i guess in the UK people are not allowed to 'live their faith' openly or freely.
that explains alot about why you express the view that you do on here.

A citizen who has to feed their family and themselves and who cannot find a job, that's who.

Geez.......

And back up what you claim about people getting welfare so easily. You throw out these statements without even one source or statistic to back them up.

BTW, it is NOT that those on welfare have to be LOOKING for work; it is that they HAVE to be working in order to qualify- did you not READ the information I posted for you?

Sometimes I find rainy days to be very comforting and pleasant; maybe that's because here in the Sunshine State (VERY aptly named) our cloudy and "gloomy" days are few and far between so if nothing else, I always find those days to be a welcome change of pace.

As a matter of fact, we just had 4 or 5 cloudy days in a row- very unusual for here and all the more since only a smattering of rain accompanied the clouds.

And.....it's all what you get used to- as much as I enjoy a cloudy and rainy day from time to time, the last several days was getting to be a bit much.

It was lovely to wake up this morning to a beautiful sun-kissed Florida day!

OCB agreed with you on that.

I suspect you must have perfect children who never vent their frustrations on the world around them?

http://www.cdl.org/resource-library/articles/...

Many adopted kids suffer from negative emotions caused by over-reactive, older, perfectionist parents. Adoptive parents tend to have trouble bonding with, or developing a synergistic feeling towards children not genetically their own. The kids feel alienated by the lack of natural affection and "act out".

Sometimes, having "good intentions" just isn't enough.

No, because their agenda isn't to "glorify heterosexuality".

I've known only one gay guy in my life that I'd call a "normal gay guy". He doesn't flaunt his gayness to world, he doesn't give a crap if you know what his sexual preference is. I didn't even know he was gay until my he & my wife were talking about relationships. She works with him, he's cool as can be.

Homosexuals aren't a minority, they're not a race, they're not held down by society....
