Don't blacks ever get tired of crying "racist" and "racism" when they don't get their way?

White guilt? Sorry i'm just not feeling it, and neither is most white Americans anymore.

This nation’s history of racism will continue to be exposed as the not guilty verdict for Zimmerman and the bigots celebration of an unarmed innocent Black teenager being shot down in cold blood gives civil rights leaders, minority communities and the so-called Liberal Media the high moral ground; and the right is too shortsighted and full of hate to realize that they continue to alienate themselves as they unknowingly set themselves up for major losses and further isolation in the future.
There were just as many Whites in the streets protesting Zimmerman getting away with murder as there were Blacks and Hispanics.

Yeah and there were plenty of blacks,-PLENTY- who stayed home, as did MOST whites.

Hey dummy? Haven't you caught on yet?
Zimmerman isn't white moron.

Civil rights leaders?????
Don't make us laugh, their nothing more than race hustlers out to fatten up their own pockets and as long as dumbasses like you still believe the nonsense they babble about they will still keep stirring up more bullshyt.

PROVE ME WRONG YOU FAKE!

When was the last time ole hustling Al Sharpton or Jesse "shakedown" Jackson gave a crap about the other 10,000 or so other young blacks killed every year?

Answer you coward!

YOU can't because you know it is the truth, Ole Al and Obama don't give a shyt about Trayvon anymore than you or the rioters do, all those idiots are out for is the "free stuff" they can steal.

Who cares what the "liberal" media says, there are so many other media outlets now nobody watches them, they all have low viewership.

And uh PattyCake, we are not setting ourselves up for losses, oh Patty, we are waking up and that spells doom for your ilk.

Alienation?

You betcha! That is the plan..........

You have to understand. If blacks don't blame someone else for their failures then three things become relevant. One the liberals keep eyes off their failure by pointing to others, two, Blacks are a failure unto their own culture of hate and crime, three.......the liberals communist way has never worked and they have to keep the low information voters eyes off of the facts.

Don't white reactionaries like you ever get tired of blaming black Americans for the racism forced on them for 300 years?

Sorry if I don't give a damn whether you're "feeling it" or not.

Another filthy spew of white racism..by a poster who then blames black Americans for the problems he and his kind heap upon them.

Are you even aware of your own hypocrisy, of the disconnect between your own statements? I don't think you're capable of seeing it, frankly. You're just not that smart.

Dinkins was not elected because he was not a good mayor by any sense of the word. Racism had no part to play.

Dinkins was as dumb as a brick. He was better qualified to be the janitor at Gracie Mansion not the mayor.
