At least their doing something constructive with their lives while trying to help others. The world would be a much better place if more of them existed. My mother is actually one of Jehovah's Witnesses. She has more class in her pinky finger than some of you in your whole bodies. You guys wake up early in the morning running to badness. I'll bet the first thing many of you do is run to the computer and start typing in names of animals and cursing. Do you even get cleaned up first. You're racist. Mean while the witnesses are up early in the morning for a good cause. Getting their magazines ready and getting together to go out in field service. They could definitely use them in Chicago. Some of you have even admitted that you are older than 30years old.

Speaking as an African American, I don’t hear the crying as much as I see the fear that some Caucasians have as the demographics and culture of the country changes. African Americans are thankful for our ancestors overcoming the mind set of white supremacy and physical violence of slavery and Jim Crow. Standing up for our rights and the rights of others is very American. Perhaps it is you that needs to go back to the cave that your ancestors dwelled in while the Africans created civilization.

It is difficult to feel welcome here as a black woman when blanket statements are tossed at will.
Many of “us” agree with much of what “you” say, but when blanket statements about our race are thrown,[[[[THINK of THAT from the other way around - you KNOW BOTH sides - if possible! Then make a 'decision'... WE Conservatives DO - AL]]] a) one automatically weakens their argument and b) it makes “us” who tend to agree, cringe or shy away.(shrugs)

There is a bigger “there” within that comment, which deserves expansion – and perhaps a greater understanding.

They are only asking you to " stop absorbing the filth " because they want you to listen to theirs.

No different then Budweiser asking you to stop drinking Miller.

You're spot on regarding those idiotic Jehovah's Witnesses. I've had to heave a few of those clowns in my day; it seems that they enjoy being annoying.

Good god - what a noxious, odoriferous cloud of mental flatulence.

PHEW!

That said, Jehovah's Witnesses are superstitious fools, considering that their silly god is about as real as the Pillsbury Doughboy or the Michelin Man. I never have understood why people have to lean on the ethereal crutch of religion, especially when there is no supporting evidence for such absurd beliefs. Oh well, what can I expect from a drooling cadre of ignorant, talking anthropoids?

Incidentally, it's time for you to realize that people have the right to be racists - consult the First Amendment. People also have the right to be prejudicial, intolerant and bigoted, whether you like it or not.

It's called "freedom of association". If you don't believe me, ask any competent lawyer.

I am definitely glad we have freedom of association. I would have to kill myself if I had to associate with the likes of you. Jehovah's witnesses are definitely applauding their God Jehovah for such freedom.

Jehovah's witnesses are mindless sheep . Following a "literal" translation of the bible is not only clueless it is impossible . To literally follow a book that is comprised of folklore is for the truly mindless

I wish I was 30 years old again.

Rudely knocking on the doors of people who wish not to be bothered is not helping others, it's called being a pest. The guy that knocked on my door years ago wanting to sell me vacuum cleaners or encyclopedias was not helping me either. I know where to buy vacuum cleaners and I know where to find religion if I so desire. These people are not doing it for my benefit--they are doing it for theirs. It's the reason many cities have no solicitation laws.

"You're racist." Okay, so call me racist if it makes you feel good. But instead of trying to make me feel guilty because my racial views, did you ever ask yourself why some people are racist? Because when you call somebody racist, it implies that they are wrong somehow.

There are few who dislike or hate other groups of people because of how they look or what color their skin. People hold resentment of groups of people based on how they conduct themselves. When those groups of people are renown for their destruction and you've experienced it first hand, of course there is animosity. Blame the "racist" and not the people responsible for that person becoming a racist.

Didn't mean to be offensive. Turned on computer yesterday and instantly saw racist comments from some people in forum. Reacted to those comments really fast as pay back. I realize Jehovah's Witnesses are not perfect,but most of them treat people with respect.

What gets me is that so many black people (not all) are doing and saying to and about Zimmerman EXACTLY the same type of unfair, racist, and bigoted things they accuse others of doing to and saying about blacks.

Double-standard, much? Or is this an example of "black privilege"?
