Most people would agree that slavery is an abomination. And racism is also. But you seem to think that revers racism is okay. Why? Racism is racism and all it does is promote more racism<quoted text>
How the tables have turned. From being kidnapped in black Africa, transported in floating hovel death traps where hardly 2/3 survived, sold in bondage and mistreated and killed indiscriminately, and, even after the emancipation proclamation, continued to live a life of servitude, lynched at will by ignorant and racist southerners, low wages and not even allowed to enlist in the armed forces until 1942, and in segregated units only, to be allowed to play the national sport (my *ss) baseball in 1948 only and, until the 60s, but a smarting of black congressmen and senators. And don't come back with "mind your own business" or "I don't know what it is to be an American". Irrelevant, what I wrote is history, all true. And may I add, you're not alone, blacks and other minorities have not faired much better worldwide, with American blacks perhaps being the best treated in the world in 2012 - which is not saying all that much.
And you come out with the phrase " many blacks are racist"?. Well, maybe they have a good reason and it's about time, don't you think?
When I joined the Army I wanted to fly medivac and I did from 1975-77 in Hawaii. But in 1980 when I wanted to go on to another medivac assignment I was told no.
You see, female Army pilots could not fly combat missions so they were taking up many of the medivac slots so the Army told me I could go to a Cobra assignment. Yep, if you are going to be an Army aviator, you should be able to accept ANY pilot assignment. I was not interested in flying attack helicopters but I was able to get into Chinooks where I spent my last nine years in the Army.
So, it does not matter if you are a female or black or, etc., when you are given priority assignment over non-females, non-blacks, etc. it is still wrong!!!
But you progressives believe in SOCIAL justice which is not real justice because if promotes reverse discrimination! YOU are the racists and the sexists!
