Ala. sheriff locked up over measly jail meals

Why do you not like it in Alabama? I moved here from Florida where I have lived the majority of my life in between travelling abroad. There is no doubt that Alabama has a few blemishes, or rough around the edges if you will, but this is the greatest place ever. Yea, I run into backwoods uneducated people as well as renditions of thuggish idiots. There are yuppies here that I absolutely despise and there are crack whores, crooked politicians, rapists, murders, and a fair share of white trash. But, it has been my experience that these same elements exist everywhere else to the same degree or more. I mean is it the local government, the scenery, or the people that you do not like? You are in Georgia? Funny… Loaded up with politicians under investigation… Why don’t you skip over to Atlanta and sit in the Greyhound Bus Station at midnight for a few hours and then tell me how bad Alabama is. I was in Marietta and experienced a knock on the door only to find two whores looking for business. I was in Macon where I could not get into my hotel room until 1:30am; after I grabbed a bite to eat, I came back to my hotel where there was a double murder on my floor and was off limits. I saved a woman’s life in Albany after she had been stomped nearly to death by a deer that she had hit and came into her vehicle. It took 15 maybe 20 minutes for the medics to arrive. Do I have a bad opinion about Georgia? Nope, Love it there and the majority of people there are awesome! By the way, Braves season ticket holder here! I have a lot of experiences in the southeast U.S. and all over the world for that matter. I love Georgia, Alabama, the south east, and the United States of America for that matter. If you do not like it in the great state of Alabama, then please stay away, there is a reason why we all call it “Sweet Home Alabama.”  (Apr 26, 2009 | post #28)

Confessions of a black man

I once saw an adult black male walking down the street in Miami, Florida drinking out of a baby-bottle. I once saw a masked man walking down the street in Los Angeles, California that had a collar around his neck with a leash where an obese white woman was walking him. I have traveled around and observed quite a bit... I remember one time I was waiting on my girl-friend in the parking lot of a grocery store and 3 couples in a row walked out of a grocery store that were white females with African-American males. I observed on TV that there was a mature beautiful hott blonde that was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a young boy in Florida. What about the Mary-Kay Letourneau story? She was a beautiful woman with 4 kids in Washington etc... Mary Kay Letourneau’s father actually ran for president in 1972. So she runs off with a 13 year old kid (when she was 34) and spends several years in prison due to “child rape.” She gave birth to a young kids child as well and ended up marrying him, ha! ...See, all kinds of bullshit goes on and we can all make tall-tales about whatever we want. Does this mean that all 34 year old women like 13 year old young boys? Does this mean that all 34 year old women like Mexican young boys? Does this mean that all 34 year old unhappily married white females are prone to stray from their marriage for 13 year old boys, Mexicans, or African-Americans? NO, NO, NO... But you will disagree and continue to rant about how all white females are cognitively and subconsciously drooling over African-American males and say that I am clueless and ignorant etc... ...Get a grip and seek counseling because you utterly incorrectWhat my white women want? I do not place ownership to white women or women of any race. A woman is of her own entity and that rightly so. By the way, I am in my early part of my 30’s so I am not some old man or a young buck for that matter... My simple statement to you and all these white women you have crawling all over you is that, “once you go black, you can’t come back.”  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #366)

I do not have wishful theories on interracial dating/relationshi ps. I have my own personal preference/theory and statistics that are backed by the Census Bureau. Everything that you have posted is how you have experienced it? Do you realize that some paranoid schizophrenic patients believe that they have had conversations with people that are not there? I do not think that you are a paranoid schizophrenic but I do think that you believe your own bullshit. I have met and saw white females that say they only want black males as partners. And the same holds true for African-American women who will date white males only. It has been very few but I have no problem with those women. I am just simply stating that I would never want anything to do with them and neither would any decent white male. I have had a few experiences with African-American females hitting on me to the point where I have had to be rude to steer them away. I have some friends of mine that like to make jokes about these African-American women that hit on me. I have been all over the world and do not need a geographic breakdown. Indeed, it is more or less taboo in some areas opposed to others; however, you are far from correct and it is obvious that you are riddled with “insecurities.” The way that you have told your fairy-tales makes it appear as if white females are unhappy with their white masles and only happiness is fulfilled in being with black males. If you believe that, then you are delusional and entertaining at most.  (Apr 14, 2009 | post #365)

These “childish” questions are the antithesis of ignorance, “my logic is undeniable.”As I mentioned before, these questions are designed to make one aware of what they are getting into. I have no interest in acquiring your friendshipI am not afraid to date a woman that has dated an African-American male; the element of fear or insecurity does not exist because I simply will not contribute to the transmutation of species on any front. In my mind, it makes a woman filthy to have been involved in, considered involvement, or would consider involvement with a black male. I had one girl tell me that she had been with a black man and she also told me it was only one time and it was bad, it was a rebellious act against her father. I said to her and say to you, “once you go black you can’t come back.” If that upsets you, then you need to learn to deal with it because this is the mindset of the majority of white males. Compete? No thanks, I will be a benchwarmer in this gameHow would you know that I do not have black friends? I have friends that are black that are African-American as well as African. However, I do not associate with anyone that is thuggish that speaks broken English on purpose or someone wears flashy clothing with their pants wrapped around the bottom of their ass. A real African-American man (I said the word “man” again) despises the aforementioned and is a disgrace to them and their culture. By the way, my closest friend is African-American… As Arsenio Hall would say, “things that make you go hmmmYou can always measure one’s intelligence by their grammar and writing mechanics. Your writing skills are pathetic to say the least so go back to the drawing-board. Childish? I have been called things like, “rocket-scientist” and even “racist” but I can assure you that I am nor racist or childish. Read that last sentence over againReading that sentence was like hearing finger-nails scratching the surface of a chalk-board. Anyway, if my asking a woman basic questions like “have you ever had an STD” or anything in regard to her sexual history, pushes her away then she is not my type anyway. If any of those questions offended a woman, it would more than likely have to do with the fact she is guilty of some of them or endorses some of them. While these questions offend you, they have never offended any women in the past. I have no trouble getting dates with women by the way and there has been a good bit of instances where I have had to turn women down.  (Apr 13, 2009 | post #357)

7) Have you ever had a friend with benefits? A friend with benefits is a nice way of saying “f**k buddy” and I have met a few women that have had a friend with benefits in the past. One girl was telling me that the guy that she met at a night club (in other words they didn’t know each other very well at all) and they both arranged a time for him to come over to her house like twice a week. He would knock on the door and they would walk to the bedroom and have sex. He would leave and that is that. Dude, that is straight up nasty and I would never do anything like that and I wouldn’t ever date anyone who would! 8) Have you ever had an STD? I don’t think I need to explain this one. If you don’t ask your partner this question, then you are an idiot! 9) What is the largest age gap between you and the person you have dated in the past? I think it’s nasty for young women to date much older men and I think it’s nasty for older women to date much younger men. I stick with +/- 4 years and would never date a girl that has been with really young guys or old men (with respect to her age of course). 10) Have you ever had an abortion? I once knew a girl that had 2 abortions because she was sexually irresponsible. I’m sorry but if you made the bed you need to lay in it; I don’t care what the situation is (with the exception of rape)! Hence, I would never date a girl that has had killed a baby. 11) Have you ever been raped? The reason I would not date a girl that has been raped or molested is because she will more than likely have some psychological issues in the bedroom and I just don’t want to deal with that. However, I would be willing to be friends with her. 12) Are you into long term relationships? I ask this question to initiate the conversation of her past relationship history. If she has been in a lot of short term relationships, then there is a reason. The magic number is 6 months where the sex got old and the meat and potatoes of the relationship was probably based on sex alone. A lot of men and women do not know how to love because they come from broken homes or had parental/family issues during their childhood. I dated a couple girls that did not know how to love and it was obvious that their inabilities came from their childhood and became stoic as an adult. By the way, men/women become emotionally numb and lose the ability to love a man/woman the way that they should when they sleep around. It is kind of like having your heart broken a few times; you start to toughen up after a while.  (Apr 13, 2009 | post #348)

Apparently you couldn’t read between the lines so I will spell it out for you… It is good that you have had the opportunity to date all kinds of women, your point? Also, thanks for your input and everything but I don’t care what my questions sound like. It is called knowing what you are getting into… And, as a “man” I know exactly what I like in a woman. 1) Have you ever or would you ever date a black man or other races? It’s very simple… I am Irish and proud of it. There were many people in my family tree that died at young ages due to wars. There were many people in my family tree that were murdered, raped, and tortured over the years. Moreover, my clansmen were forced to move out of Scotland and into Northern Ireland. Without going in depth, I will cut to the chase; I refuse to taint my family heritage. Furthermore, if I had a child with a woman and things didn’t work out, it would not set well with me to have my child having African-American influence. Hence, the first question I ask a white female that I am interested in getting to know better is: “have you ever or would you ever date a black man or other races?” 2) Have you ever cheated in a relationship? I am pretty sure that I have never been cheated on and I have never, nor would I ever, cheat on my partner. Once a cheater always a cheater in my book! 3) Have you ever had a threesome (or more) or would you? I am not into group sex at all… I think it is nasty and disgusting. By the way, a good bit of women have had threesomes. Most of them try it out in their younger years. 4) Have you ever had sexual contact with a female? I do not approve of homosexual behavior. I don’t care what the deal is… I do not think it’s sexy for 2 females to kiss or have sex with each other etc… I know a lot of guys think it’s hott and some girls will share a kiss just for fun to have a laugh while at a party etc... You would be surprised at the number of women that have had sexual contact with another woman. 5) Have you ever had sexual contact with a stranger? I would never have random/casual sex and have no desire to be with anyone who has or ever would. I have met a couple of women that have indeed had sex with a rank stranger. Nasty, nasty, nasty!!! 6) Have you ever had a one night stand? I have never had a one night stand nor will I ever. I think sexual contact should have emotions behind it and not just a moment of pleasure. I think it’s nasty, disgusting, and disrespectful to a man/woman’s body to have one night stands. I would never date a girl that has had, or would have, a one night stand.  (Apr 13, 2009 | post #347)

Who would you vote the next president of the USA?

Obviously she made an analogy in reference to Siberia. If I say that it is "hot as hell," does that mean that I have experienced hell and have the knowledge of what hell is like? Have you ever heard of a juxtaposition or a metaphor? Do you know what an analogy is? What about allegory? Sarah Palin is not perfect and yes you are entitled to your own opinion. I am here wasting my time talking to someone that obviously has no kids and is riddled with ignorance. I hope that you have a daughter someday or maybe you do have a daughter and she is just so perfect in your own little warped perspective as a consequence of your own ignorance. Indeed, her daughter became impregnated which hurt her and John McCain running for Presidency to a small degree. It is only because people like you express their primitive outlook and are quick to judge others. I hope that you have a daughter come home someday that says, “Daddy I am pregnant.” Maybe you will say “who is the father?” What if she says that she has no idea that it could be several men? What if the father was married already with 3 kids? And, the story goes on and on and on and on… Should we all stone her to death? Should we not trust a word out of your mouth because “your daughter” made a mistake? What should we all do?  (Apr 12, 2009 | post #21)

Confessions of a black man

There is a maximum of 4000 characters so I had to break things up a little bit. Did you notice the first question on the last post? I have quite a few friends (both black and white) and they all agree with me that, “once you go black you can’t come back.” And, let me clarify: if you have or would date a black man or other races, I have no interest in you and neither do most all of the white men out there. When I ask a woman these questions right off the bat, some are offended and some are not. I always apologize to the one’s that pass the test and explain to them why I asked those questions. However, the first answer that I get that I don’t approve of I stop and change the subject and make my exit. I think everyone should ask these questions whether you are a man or woman. Otherwise you will be knee deep in a relationship with someone that you like/love and realize that you are disgusted by the fact that they “been there and done that.”  (Apr 12, 2009 | post #339)

I wonder where you went to college because you appear to be rather ignorant. I think what we have here is a case of insecurity on many fronts. You have elaborated and put some forth some work in an attempt to make your point so I will give you an “A” for effort. You also receive an “A” for initiating a topic that has warranted a discussion. However, you receive an “F” overall because statistics reveal that your claims are obviously based on your insecurities and are totally inaccurate. When you first wrote this (funny to me) post, you were probably upset because a white female turned you down. One of my black friends asked this white girl (that was a friend of mine) out and she turned him down. First off, she had a long-distance boyfriend for 2 years and was very committed to him and they are married now. Anyway, he didn’t know her very well and didn’t realize that she was in a relationship already and pulled the race card. When he asked her why he would not go out with her, she told him she was in a relationship and also said she didn’t date black men. She told him that she was not attracted to them and her family would disapprove. And, dude let me tell ya, he was upset for months over that one: kind of reminds me of your silly rant. How about taking a Sunday drive, park your vehicle, and go stand next to a busy highway. Count how many interracial (black & white) couples you see. Indeed, you will see some but in the grand scheme of it all you will see very few. During my college career, I did see a few (very few) white girls that were dating black men. Most of the girls that I saw were obese and highly unattractive but I did see some white women that were good looking and dating black men. I think most of it is insecurity on the female’s behalf to date black men but not all of it. If you were to analyze the white female that is dating the black male, you will find (almost every time) that she does not have much of a family, highly insecure, and they tend to sleep around. Similarly, most of the men and women out there that have very few friends that are of the same age and sex are fully loaded with insecurities. It is these insecurities that act as mechanisms to drive one’s attitude and perspective towards life. By the way, I read that there were 2.1% of white females that were involved in interracial relationships with a black male during the year of 2008. Also, I read that 0.99% (almost half of the aforementioned statistic) of white men that were involved in interracial relationship with black females during the year of 2008. I have seen maybe 10 interracial relationships in my life that were white men with black women. They must be hiding somewhere? When it comes to dating, I ask several questions and I will share them with you all in order. 1) Have you ever or would you ever date a black man or other races? 2) Have you ever cheated in a relationship? 3) Have you ever had a threesome (or more) or would you? 4) Have you ever had sexual contact with a female? 5) Have you ever had sexual contact with a stranger? 6) Have you ever had a one night stand? 7) Have you ever had a friend with benefits? 8) Have you ever had an STD? 9) What is the largest age gap between you and the person you have dated in the past? 10) Have you ever had an abortion? 11) Have you ever been raped? 12) Are you into long term relationships?  (Apr 12, 2009 | post #338)

Birmingham, AL

Ala. sheriff locked up over measly jail meals

I read throughout this posting and it appears that people are condemning anyone who has been branded by our society as a criminal. One has to consider that our justice system is far from perfect and sometimes people are wrongfully convicted. Also, not all criminals should be in the same category as a murderers and rapists. I will briefly share a story with you about a dear friend of mine. My friend David was 17 years old and was walking home from my house after a night of guitar playing. David was a good kid and came from a good family; however, that one night he was walking home from my house he ran into 2 other kids that had a bad reputation as “trouble.” Apparently, the 2 kids that he met up with on his walk home decided to walk with David, and during their walk the other 2 kids wanted to break into some RV’s that were on the way to David’s house. The RV’s were in a storage lot and were all abandoned so there was no safety threat to people. David did not want to break in and was trying to talk them out of breaking in these RV’s but from what he told me there was no stopping them. So, he decided to wait outside and agreed to be the watchman. To make the story short, a month or so later the other 2 kids were arrested for a rash of break-ins and ended up telling the police about my friend David. Of course the story was warped and my friend David was arrested for 3 burglaries, which are felonies. The other 2 kids were not even arrested for those burglaries regardless of what David told the police… David was arrested and treated as an adult; he ended up taking a plea bargain to spend 8 months in a county jail and three years of probation. When David got out of jail, he was very passionate about making something of himself and he was one of the smartest kids in high-school. He followed my footsteps and got a couple engineering degrees. David is one of the brightest engineers I have ever met and the kind of guy you just can’t help but to like. David had a lot of trouble getting his career started because companies saw that he was branded as a criminal. But, David persevered and has done amazingly well in his career and his investments. But, you know what? David is a convicted felon and labeled as a criminal. David did do something that was criminal by participating in a criminal event; consequently, he was the one who was held responsible for committing the crimes where it should have been a criminal offense to a lesser degree. Instead, I think he deserved the key to the city for trying to talk those other 2 kids out of committing crimes. It sounds like the Sheriff that ordered meals did indeed do something criminal and the offense happened over and over each passing meal. So, yes the Sheriff should be terminated from his job and “maybe charged with a crime.” However, it sounds as if there isn’t a system of checks and balances in place and hopefully county management system can learn from this and make changes accordingly to avoid this circumstance in the future. However, he does not deserve to be condemned, executed, tortured, or mistreated! I would hate to be on a deserted island with "most" of you people; sounds like you all would turn into animals pretty quickly!  (Apr 11, 2009 | post #25)

Why is she Angelina Jolie so famous? Because people who don't have a life of their own to tend to stick their nose in other people's business.
